While I know this video got passed around the Interweb by almost the entire world yesterday – I saw it just when I had to leave for work in the morning, so I wasn’t able to publish it – I just have to make sure this gets thrown up on SQ. If you’re one of our faithful SQ regulars, you’re probably well aware of my deep affinity for anything Goldeneye; a while back I posted a Goldeneye 64 speed run challenge on 00 Agent (the Aztec bonus level), but still am waiting on a brave challenger. Goldeneye, just like Jimmy said in the beginning of this awesome video, is hands down one of the best video games of all time, and I would be hard pressed to not drop it in my top three. If you grew up with a Nintendo 64, you likely spent most of your time playing Goldeneye – do not pass up on this video!
No, it’s not #TBT (that’s Throwback Thursday there boss), but this one is just too good to wait another 52 hours! Yesterday we brought you a Zach Galifianakis stand-up video gem from 1999, but today we are going to not only go back one whole year to 1998, but we’re going to add the legendary Ken Jeong – aka Mr. Chow – to the stage. Yes, you read that right: this is Alan and Mr. Chow 9 years before they would become absolute mega stars with the release of The Hangover. For the love of all that is funny, do not pass up this video. Please.
For me it’s really hard to choose between late night television shows, as I think they are all equal parts hilarious. Leno was always hilarious with his stand-up bit, and who could hate on the Jaywalking bits when he would ask random people on the street questions about US history? Letterman and Fallon are always pretty funny – although the two have very different styles of comedy – and then there’s Jimmy Kimmel, who I still can’t believe looks the way he does after his Man Show days. Last but not least we have Mr. Conan O’Brien – maybe the best of the entire bunch – so you can see how tough it is to really decide on watching just one of them. Regardless, since it is officially Throwback Thursday here at SQ, we decided it would be pretty cool to take a look back – way back to 1979 – and see what some of these gentlemen looked like more than 30 years ago. Great pictures below!
Now this is a classic photo of Brett Favre, and just the awesomeness that was 1991! Although I am a devout Chicago Bears fan – Brett Favre always destroyed Da Bears on the football field – I just so happen to be in the vicinity of where Brett Favre destroyed the college football record books in Hattiesburg, MS, or more specifically the University of Southern Miss. While I despise the Green Bay Packers, I am man enough to lay down the facts that Brett Favre was absolutely incredible – maybe the best quarterback of all time – and Jay Cutler, as good as he is for my Bears, simply doesn’t even come close. Plus, Favre was hilarious in There’s Something About Mary, so in all honesty how could I really hate the guy? But enough with the small talk; hit the link below for a stellar Throwback Thursday photo of Brett Favre getting the NFL Draft phone call from 1991, complete with rolled jeans, short shorts (fellas … why?), and red Solo beer cups.
