Pop Culture Happenings: Twilight Bad Lip Dub and more buzzworthy dumps

Bad Lip Reading must have the patience of gods, because I cannot imagine watching something like "Twilight" so many times that I could overdub the dialogue with not only lip-matched words, but a semi-narrative comedic script. It is fantastic, and I recommend their backlog of videos if you have the time.
More sizzling pop goodness after the bump.
I am not sure where my feel(ing)s are like for the film "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" and I'm not sure which direction this trailer pushes me, but here is gotta-be-in-an-action-movie-every-six-months Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton kicking witch butt. I hope it is more "Brothers Grimm" and less "Van Helsing."

This next video comes from the wonderful Symphony of Science folks, who in this remix take Bruce Lee to task. You have probably seen it before, but "Be like water my friend" and watch it again.

What kind of pop culture post would this be without a supercut? Having spent most of last week trying to make my own (seen here for a limited time), I can appreciate the sheer man-hours needed to even harvest all of the footage necessary. This is "Supercut: Apocalypse," which I think speaks for itself.

Have you had you Gangam Style today? Well here is Psy himself, teaching Michelle Park, and by proxy you the viewers at home, the trick of ridin' that pony.

I think we are all a little old to be Rick-Rolled, which is what makes this next video so special. Take a dated joke, and set it in a period piece? Brilliant! This is the cast of Mad Men, performing Rick Astley's "hit" Never Gonna Give You Up.

This next mash-up is a work of art. Gangam Style, LFMAO, Offspring, Dev and Bloodhound Gang, all in one song. I wish I had this much audio talent.
