Ga Ga: The Williams Sisters Versus The Manning Brothers in Double Stuf Oreos Commercial

In a new TV spot for Double Stuf Oreos, tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams announce their decision to join the Double Stuf Racing League—”a fierce competition to see who’s fastest to twist, lick and dunk their Oreo cookie!”

In the commercial, NFL brothers Eli and Peyton Manning rival the Williams sisters in their press conference–convinced that they are copycats! Here’s the hilarious, cheeky transcript between the dueling sports siblings:

Venus: “My sister and I are proud to announce that we’ve decided to chase the dream and become two-sport athletes.”

Serena: “We’ve joined the Double Stuf Racing League!”

Peyton: “My brother and I like to announce that this is a great idea–when we thought of it, like a year ago.”

Serena: “Well my sister and I would like to announce that you guys are going down!

Eli: “My brother and I like to announce that Oooohhhh, we’re scared!

Venus: “My sister and I would like to announce that you should be!

Peyton: “My brother and I like to announce that it’s on like Donkey Kong!

Eli: “And stop copying us!

Janelle Monae Dubbed ‘Girlie Grace Jones’ in GQ Newcomer Spread

Featured in the latest issue of GQ, quirky singer Janelle Monae says of signing with Diddy, “I wanted to work with someone who’d get excited then leave me alone creatively.”

The Atlanta native’s debut EP, Metropolis: The Chase, is also called an “explosion of retrofuturistic funk, a bombastic one-woman sci-fi rock opera,” by the magazine, which also compliments her on having “the looks of a girlie Grace Jones.”

Of her style, which she has picked up from studying footage of James Brown, Buddy Holly, Mick Jagger and Judy Garland, the 23-year-old says, “I just learned how to let my own inner whatever-it-is come out.”

Confessions of an ObamaVoter: McCain vs. Obama in the Ultimate Convention Speech Off

The nomination acceptance speeches for both Barack Obama & John McCain were telling moments for their race for the White House.

Obama shattered expectations with an oratory masterpiece, while McCain managed to survive the night with the support of two crutches: his POW biography and sassy VP pick Sarah Palin.

When Obama’s moment came, he wiped the GOP’s character attacks of him off the map: Celebrity? Patriotism? Toughness? All arguments revealed to be nothing more than child’s play–the retorts in this speech were so delicious!!!

After a solid Joe Biden VP pick, a successful DNC, and Obama’s game changing speech, the Republicans had to make a desperate move in order to compete…that’s where VP pick Sarah Palin came in.

This pro-life, moose hunting, hockey mom-ing, miss congeniality-winning, right wing firecracker came out with venom for Obama, electrifying her base with an effective, substance free, biting performance. She gave the cowboy hat-wearing GOPs an early climax at the convention…and McCain put them to sleep afterwards.
