MTV VMA'S: Taylor Swift vs. Kanye West 2010

Taylor Swift and Kanye West did their best to help boost the ratings for this year's MTV Video Music Awards by rehashing their feud from last year's show. Watch both of their performances below.





Top 5 Funniest: 'Mad Men,' 'Seinfeld,' Stephen Colbert and More

Last week's Mad Men showdown between Don and Peggy was hailed by many as the best episode of the series so far. So it was only fitting that the next day Babelgum Comedy released this video predicting how the show will jump the shark in the 1970's.





In my previous Top 5 Funniest feature, we looked at the unintentional comedy of Arizona Governor Jan Brewer's epic debate fail where she couldn't even manage to get through a sixty second opening statement without completely seizing up and going brain dead. She didn't do much better after the debate when reporters tried to ask her about her claim that there have been "headless bodies" left in the Arizona desert by Mexicans. This week, not only did Jon Stewart use Jan Brewer as an example of why Democrats are doomed in November, but The Full Ginsburg offered their comedic take on the debate video. In this video, we get to see how her campaign manager was reacting to her on-air meltdown.





Stephen Colbert spent the latter half of this past week focusing on his "Been There Won That" tribute to Iraq soldiers and veterans. He even had Joe Biden on the show, serving hot dogs and praising George W. Bush (much to the disappointment of Rachel Maddow). But the funniest Colbert clip of the week came on Tuesday night when he responded to Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally, and the internet campaign for him to host a "Restoring Truthiness" rally, by consulting with his trusted adviser Geese Witherspoon. This segment combined with Jon Stewart's teasing of a big announcement could mean something big is in the works.

Speaking of The Daily Show, Funny or Die's Hal Rudnick seemed to channel that show's field correspondents when he visited the set of a Seinfeld porn parody and interviewed the cast about the history of the classic sitcom. This is almost as good as the Seinfeld reunion last season on Curb Your Enthusiasm.




The "silliest" video of the week came from UCB Comedy, who made the first sketch that I know of that accurately depicts how ridiculous Silly Bandz are. Seriously, what is the deal with those things?
