The man who anchors the nightly news, a comedy goddess and a broadway superstar all have one thing in common this week. Their videos are going viral.
Its hard to believe that this is the 7th installment of Brian Williams' raps. If you are fan of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon you are no stranger to these videos. The concept is easy. Someone sits and goes through five years worth of Brian Williams' Nightly News footage and then cuts it together so it makes it seem like he's rapping. Nothing like hearing about the, "hoes and weed" while seeing him on the battlefields of Baghdad. The video was posted last night and already has 1.5 million views and counting. Brian just wants to sip his Gin and Juice while he's laid back!
Billy Eichner has made a name for himself by running up to New Yorkers, putting a mic in their face and then shouting random things at them on his show Billy on The Street. Some people play along, others keep walking and some people just completely lose it. Recently Eichner took the streets of New York with comedy queen Amy Poehler were they played a game called "Its Not Pitbull-It's Amy Poehler." Poehler proves once again that she is one of the best people on the planet and that people go nuts over her. Everyone besides that guy in a suit who seemed like he didn't care who she was. Your loss man.
Broadway fans this one is for you. Sure the kids know her as the woman who sings 'Let It Go,' but true fans of Idina Menzel know her for her role as Maureen in Rent. That role skyrocketed her career and nearly twenty years later people are still belting out her famous ballad, 'Take Me Or Leave Me.' After a performance of her new musical If/Then, two lucky ladies won a chance to sing the famous song with Menzel on stage. Not only did they absolutely kill it, they gave Menzel a run for her money.
