Alanis Morissette - Ironic (21st Century) [VIDEO]

James Corden welcomes Alanis Morissette to perform some hilariously updated lyrics to her 1995 hit "Ironic."

An old friend sends you a Facebook request
You only find out they’re racist after you accept
There’s free office cake on the first day of your diet
It’s like they announce a new iPhone the day after you buy it
And isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?
It’s like swiping left on your future soulmate
It’s a Snapchat that you wish you had saved
It’s a funny tweet that nobody faves
And who would’ve thought it figures

It’s a traffic jam when you try to use Waze
A no-smoking sign when you brought your vape
It’s 10,000 male late-night hosts when all you want is just one woman, seriously!
It’s singing the duet of your dreams, and then Alanis Morissette shouting at you
And isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?
A little too ironic, and yeah I really do think

It’s like you’re first class on a Southwest plane
Then you realize that every seat is the same
It’s like Amazon but your package never came
And who would’ve thought it figures

It’s like Netflix but you own DVDs
It’s a free ride but your Uber’s down the street
It’s singing “Ironic,” but there are no ironies
And who would’ve thought it figures

Virginia Black Whiskey [PRE-ORDER]

Be one of the first people in North America to taste Virginia Black Decadent American Whiskey, the long-anticipated collaboration between Brent Hocking, founder and creator of DeLeón Tequila and the LCBOVO boys.

Virginia Black is a rich, smooth bourbon available at a decidedly reasonable price (because its founders believe that "everyone should have access to glamour, swagger and soul").

Pre-order your bottle online here to have it shipped in advance of the product launch later this summer.

Million Dollars, But... The Game! [FUN]


What would you do for a million dollars? This card game from Rooster Teeth, which is a lot like Cards Against Humanity, puts your morals, imagination, and friendships to the test. 

Rooster Teeth known for its Red vs. Blue comedy series blasted through the $10,000 Kickstarter goal and has sourced almost a million dollars! Million Dollars, But (or MDB, as Rooster Teeth calls it) is a popular webseries that's been running for close to a year. The premise is a simple one: You'll be given a million dollars, but... you'll need to survive a randomly chosen scenario that goes along with the windfall, and its likely to be fairly unpleasant. 

If you want to back it, you can pick it up HERE. The game is $25 and is due to ship in June.
