Would You Pay to See Coldplay’s Game of Thrones Musical?

Game of Thrones Musical

Posted by on

This week, NBC hosted a star-studded benefit to raise funds and awareness for a variety of children’s charities around the world. Taking a cue from Robin Williams’ antics in the film Patch Adams, the event was dubbed Red Nose Day and coaxed Twitter users to participate by posting photos of themselves wearing red noses, wherein the Gates Foundation automatically donated $25 to the fund.

In addition to the hashtag game, NBC produced a number of sketches and comedy segments featuring notable names like John Krasinski, Neil Patrick Harris, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Garner, Chris Hemsworth, Zach Efron, Reese Witherspoon, and more.

Here are some clips from the event that you should check out:

1. Coldplay’s Game of Thrones Musical

With comparisons to Titanic (the boat, not the movie), singer Chris Martin’s ode to the HBO hit fantasy series featured Westeros-infused tunes as well as reluctant participation from Game of Thrones stars Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, and others. While we may never see an actual live performance on Broadway, let’s hold out hope for off-off-Broadway.

2. Billy Eichner and Martin Short in Billy on the Street

Despite his many roles in TV and film, there are still some very ignorant people who don’t know who Martin Short is. And that sad fact was pointed out in a high-decibel manner when Billy Eichner and the SCTV alum took to the streets of New York for another installment of Billy on the Street. And when all was said and done, the lesson was: More people need to watch Three Amigos.

3. Ed Sheeran and Kermit Sing Rainbow Connection

For those of us who grew up watching Sesame Street, we already know how easily talking felt can evoke some tears. And if it isn’t Ernie singing about living on the moon, then Kermit crooning “Rainbow Connection” is enough to get a little watery eyed. Joining him on guitar this time is singer Ed Sheeran, who received a nice compliment from the amphibian: “Wow, you’ve got lungs!”

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
