Mario and Fafa get ready to ring in the new decade with a celebration of New Year’s Eve traditions around the globe. From pouring molten tin into cold water in Finland, to hanging onions on doors in Greece, to the dropping of the ball in New York, one thing holds true… they’re all pretty weird.
Awesome Glove And Boots
If you’re like us, you’re probably still shopping for Christmas gifts. Glove and Boots stars Mario and Fafa are joined by Zack – a human in a walrus costume – to make sure the items you’re buying really do what they say they will, and that they don’t totally suck.
Between Rise of the Skywalker, The Mandalorian, and all of the buzz surrounding the launch of Disney+, it’s a good time to be a part of the Star Wars franchise. That is, unless you’re an Ewok. Glove and Boots reporter Fafa the Groundhog sat down with an Ewok who has some very strong opinions on the subject.
Mario and Fafa take a day off from scripted comedy to do a little improv. First, they play a fun game where they have to try and say the same word at the same time, then another where they identify celebrities and characters who are progressively smaller than the last one they mentioned. Who could be tinier than Ant-Man?
Video games glorify all kinds of stuff, but if real life played out like games do, with loading screens, cutscenes, A/B choices, side quests, and inane conversations, it probably would be pretty miserable. Glove and Boots demonstrate why you wouldn’t want to live in an RPG.
Glove and Boots present a brief list of practical advice for flyers, including not dropping your pants in the middle of the aisle, not opening the emergency exit in mid-air, and not setting off fireworks in the cabin. That guy pushing on the seatback seems to follow us everywhere.
There’s an app for just about everything, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few ideas yet to be executed. Mario and Fafa present a few concepts which they think should be made. We’re pretty sure U.S. presidential campaign writers are already using Wing Zingers.
We’ve all read our share of Shakespeare in school, but the combination of old English and William’s flowery prose sometimes makes it difficult to comprehend exactly what he was talking about. Our favorite YouTube puppets do their best to sort Romeo & Juliet out for us.
