Today at Flavorpill, we got sex advice from Aubrey Plaza. We watched one man almost get shot after dressing up as a zombie. Thankfully, nobody’s face was eaten. We witnessed the best and worst moments of the MTV Movie Awards. We gawked at photos of a 40-pound cat named Garfield. We dug into Time’s summer arts preview. We felt inspired by Zola Jesus’ performance at the Guggenheim. We got geo-film nerdy with Evan Seitz’s new animation essay about countries in cinema. We loved GQ’s video shorts series featuring film’s bad guys doing mundane things. We went bowling with Breaking Bad and learned about the show’s connection to strawberry Quik. We remembered Johnny Depp’s most notable rock collaborations. And finally, we watched Andy Samberg’s recut trailer of the awful That’s My Boy. The lo-fi clip manages to be funnier than anything co-star Adam Sandler’s done in ages.
