And Now, Your Top Weekly Video Miscellany

Aw hell yeah, it’s Friday. Time to get your meatball on. But first, how about some Alan Watts powered inspiration? Dude knows how to stir up a ruckus, and by that I mean deliver a message so obvious I wonder why you ad kids didn’t think of it sooner. Then you’ll see the mystery of Honey Boo Boo, as read by Christopher Walken. I call him that cuz we’re bros. Sup Chris. Let’s go get it.

Anyhow, Mashable posted some stats and images from Twitter last night, which can you can check out here and peep a larger image from the outdoor effort after the jump.
