If you leave aside the fact that The Muppets are shilling for the world’s crappiest brand of tea, this TV commercial in which everyone in New York gets replaced by Animal from the Muppets is absolutely brilliant. Because the truth is, my friends, that everyone eventually turns into Animal in this city.
Redditor spidermanngp made this absolutely hilarious and perfectly accurate summary of Iron Man 1 and 2 for his girlfriend. Unfortunately, they broke up before he could finish it. Fortunately, he has released it so we can all enjoy it — which is great news because it’s quite good.
Do you like Iron Man? Got $US2,000 lying around? You’re in luck, my friend, because the Iron Man Factory is open for business, and they’re selling the best Iron Man suits we’ve ever seen. The only problem is you’ll have to wait, oh, about a year to get yours.

Having fun taking pictures of slushy drinks in highball glasses on perfectly distressed hardwood tables and hashtagging it #happyhour? What about posting pictures of the sky and clouds that look like every other picture of the sky and cloud and commenting how ‘this is just how I feel right now’? These are the Instagram pictures we see everyday! But that’s because we’re mere humans. What would superheroes post to Instagram?
