We realize there's only so much time one can spend in a day watching new trailers, viral video clips, and shaky cell phone footage of people arguing on live television. This is why every day The Atlantic Wire highlights the videos that truly earn your five minutes (or less) of attention. Today: Zooey Deschanel has a twee brother who also loves Siri, the Today Show does Call Me Maybe -- Today Show style and baby jaguars.
The silly as usual Kathie Lee and Hoda, have fun doing their own version of the viral "Call Me Maybe" video. Their bit has lots of gems to look out for: The giant clips holding Kathie Lee's dress up, the leg dance, when a dizzy Kathie Lee welcomes the audience to Thirsty Thursday. It delightful. And after watching this, have a happy Thirsty Thursday, indeed! [Vulture]
We think even Zooey Deschanel was making fun of Zooey Deschanel's signature adorkable twee vomit, barf thing in her Apple Siri commercial. But this Funny or Die version is straight up parody. We meet her brother, Jooey, who like Zooey uses Siri for the most over-the-top cutesy things. [Funny or Die via Buzzfeed]
For today's dose of Internet adorable, we bring you these brand new baby jaguars at the San Diego Zoo. They just got here on April 26. Since they are so young these tots are not yet on display to the public, so this really is an exclusive look. There's a really precious moment that either involves a yawn or a sneeze around the 30 second mark. Get ready to suffocate. [Guardian]
Here's a particularly nice cover of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" featuring Hayley Williams from Paramour. This song has seen a lot of covers, including what one might not call a cover by the SNL guys. This one is especially lovely. [The Daily What]
