Somebody On TikTok Turned A Pauline Hanson Speech Into A Kath & Kim Skit & I’m Obsessed

Published

on

An Australian on TikTok has turned a Pauline Hanson speech into a Kath & Kim sketch and well, somebody had to do it.

TikTok king @nathanbezzina pointed out that Hanson’s infamous “no, yes no” speech from 2018 legitimately sounds like it’s straight out of an episode of the iconic Aussie TV show.

“I said no originally, then I said yes. Then I have said no, and I’ve stuck to it,” she said in a 2018 speech on tax cuts.

So, as you’d expect, he has taken it upon himself to recreate the speech in his best Kim Craig impersonation. It is truly the best thing I’ve seen on the Australian side of TikTok all day.

“Surely I’m not the only one who thought this,” he captioned the video.

@nathanbezzinaSURELY IM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO THOUGHT THIS ???? ##Kathandkim ##fyp ##foryou ##aus♬ original sound – nathanbezzina

In less than a day, the video has already amassed over 35,000 likes, proving that no, he’s not the only person who thinks this absolutely batshit speech sounds like it’s straight out of a Kath & Kim episode.

But in addition to making my brain go “brrrr” for a couple of seconds, the TikTok also got me thinking: is Pauline Hanson just a character out of Kath & Kim? Is this a glitch in the simulation? I honestly wouldn’t be surprised.

Hanson, the fish and chip shop owner-turned-politician from Ipswich who proposes motions such as “It’s Okay To Be White” and genuinely tries to claim that she’s Indigenous because she was born in Australia? I dare you to tell me that doesn’t sound like the kind of woman who would turn up in the sub-plot of a Kath & Kim episode, I dare you.

Honestly, the possibilities are endless with this one. If you’re a TikTok fiend, I implore you to recreate one of Pauline Hanson’s many dumb speeches in the form of a Kath & Kim sketch. Go on, treat yourself.

Ghost Of Tsushima & RDR2 Discounted In PS4 Games Of A Generation Sale

Published

By

PlayStation is hosting a “Games of a Generation” sale, featuring massive discounts on hit titles such as Ghost of Tsushima and Red Dead Redemption 2.

The PlayStation Store is celebrating the PlayStation 4’s library with the “Games of a Generation” sale, including Ghost of Tsushima, Red Dead Redemption 2 and other hits from across the console’s lifetime. The sale features impressive discounts on popular PS4 titles and may be the last sale of significance until after the PS5 is released next month. Combined with the Games Under $15 sale and the ongoing Big in Japan sale, it seems like the time is now right for Sony enthusiasts to round out their PS4 libraries.

It’s not surprising that Sony is upping its game when it comes to its online marketplace; the Xbox Games Pass has been in the news quite a bit recently due to Microsoft’s acquisition of ZeniMax Media, a promotion that allows users to access the first month of Games Pass for $1, and the announcement that Doom: Eternal will be landing on the service on October 1. Additionally, Microsoft has announced that the Xbox Series X and S will both be almost fully backwards compatible, lending a great deal of content to the next-gen consoles on day one. Although the PS5 will be backwards compatible with many titles from the PS4’s library, it does not appear that games from earlier consoles will be available – at least not yet.

The sale is live on the PlayStation Store until October 15 and features discounts on a veritable goldmine of PS4 hits. Games like the massively popular Ghost of Tsushima are 25 percent off, with slightly older titles like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order being half off. The sale doesn’t solely focus on recent titles either; Call of Duty Black Ops III – Zombies Chronicles Edition is a staggering 67 percent off, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt can be acquired for only $12. The special edition of Red Dead Redemption 2 is another standout, which is marked down from the original $80 to $28. Other notable titles are Middle-Earth: Shadow of War Definitive Edition for $12 and Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience for $8.

PlayStation Store

This sale is not just an opportunity for PS4 owners, but for prospective PS5 owners as well. It’s been confirmed that 99 percent of PS4 games will be playable on PS5, meaning most titles available in the sale will make the leap to next-gen. Although Spider-Man is not included in the ongoing sale, it’s been confirmed that Spider-Man: Miles Morales will include a remastered copy of PS4’s Spider-Man, adding one more PS4 classic to the PS5’s library.

This sale is a great opportunity for Sony to showcase which games it considers to be most the most significant of the current generation. Although it doesn’t contain every game one might think of when considering the PS4’s legacy, it is certainly a fantastic representation and reminder of the reasons gamers bought the console in the first place. If the games included in this sale are backwards compatible on the PS5 on launch day, then Sony has made a great case for going with the next console on day one without losing access to some of the best games on PS4.

M. Night Shyamalan, Biden Campaign Team Up for Filmmaking Contest

Published

For the contest, M. Night Shyamalan encouraged fellow filmmakers to create brief videos about the importance of voting.

M. Night Shyamalan has teamed with Joe Biden’s presidential campaign on a filmmaking contest to encourage Americans to vote in the 2020 presidential election.

Filmmakers can submit short films up to 90 seconds long about voting via the contest’s website or by uploading directly to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #VoteByNight. Shyamalan, alongside Biden and Kamala Harris’ campaign, will review the submissions, and the top thee filmmakers will be invited to a virtual meet-up with Shyamalan to discuss art, film, and the power of storytelling. Submissions may also be featured in Biden-Harris campaign programming.

“We had this idea about asking people to make short films up to 90 seconds long about voting, about why they’re voting, how did they vote, who do they want to encourage to vote, and who’s stopping them from voting,” Shyamalan said in a video on Twitter. “Tell it in any format. You can do it as a thriller, you could do it as a comedy, a documentary. Use your storytelling power to encourage people and to wake them up to their own agency. We really feel this is an important way that all of us can be a part of this incredible moment in history.”

The filmmaking campaign was announced the day after Biden participated in the first presidential debate against president Donald Trump — a noisy and incomprehensible event that was quickly derailed by the president’s meandering insults and lies. Trump generated widespread controversy for refusing to condemn white supremacy, encouraging the far-right hate group Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by,” and urging “supporters to go into the polls and watch very carefully.”

As for Shyamalan, the filmmaker has directed a handful of high-profile titles over the last few years, including “Glass,” a superhero film starring James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, and Samuel L. Jackson, as well as the psychological horror prequel film, “Split.” Shyamalan also executive produced and directed two episodes of the Apple TV+ television series “Servant,” which premiered in 2019.

The deadline for submissions for Shyamalan’s Biden-Harris filmmaking contest is October 12. More information on the contest is available here.

The 2020 presidential election will take place November 3.

‘The 100’ Series Finale: We Are All ‘Wonkru’ (RECAP)

Published

on

By

[WARNING: The following contains MAJOR spoilers for The 100 series finale, “The Last War.”]

It’s all led up to this; all the years of fighting, destruction and chaos. In its tense and emotional final hour, The 100 delves into what it means to “do better,” and whether humans are capable of changing for the better.

One last war. One last test. One last chance for redemption, for an entire species.

Let’s break it down, one last time.

The Last Test

Raven (Lindsey Morgan), Murphy (Richard Harmon), Jackson (Sachin Sahel) and Emori (Luisa D’Oliveira) head back to Sanctum, where the good doc promptly stabilizes Emori. Murphy has to stay behind to give blood to her, which means Raven’s heading to Bardo alone.

Meanwhile, Clarke (Eliza Taylor), Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos) and Levitt go after Cadogan (John Pyper-Ferguson). Despite all the bada**ery Clarke displays in taking down the guards stationed outside the Bridge, she’s too late; the cult leader has begun the final test. On the other side, he sees his daughter—except she’s not really Callie. The higher power giving the examination, as they put it, “take the form of (a person’s) greatest teacher, their greatest failure, or love.”

The judge says that Becca (Erica Cerra) refused to take the test, but Cadogan says the human race is ready. Thus, they begin. The judge says they will ask Cadogan a series of questions and demands he answer truthfully. Should his answers meet with their satisfaction, they will transcend and become infinite. If not, they will be eliminated: turned to crystal like the Bardoans and others. So, no pressure.

Cadogan starts to answer the first question, but he suddenly collapses, a bullet lodged in his brain. It’s Clarke! “Pencils down,” she says.

Clarke’s Failure

The test appears to pause to re-calibrate for Clarke, and when the judge returns, it takes the form of Lexa (Alycia Debnam-Carey)! Clarke’s overcome with emotion and embraces her, even though she knows the judge isn’t the woman she once loved. The test can’t be stopped, so the human race will have to be judged through wanheda.  As one might expect, that doesn’t go super well, even though Clarke implores the judge to feel her agony. “Pain begets pain,” it says. “That’s not justice, Clarke.” Clarke lashes out at her examiner, saying they’re no better than she is; after all, they’re exterminating whole races for not living up to their standards. Her speech is moving, but it doesn’t work. “If you are humanity, then I am afraid humanity is not worthy of taking the next step,” the judge says.

Elsewhere on Bardo, O asks a question many of us were probably wondering; whether or not Bellamy (Bob Morley) could transcend. The answer? Nope. “Death is the end, my friend,” Levitt says, quoting The Shephard. He consoles a tearful Octavia by saying either way—whether Clarke succeeds or fails—today will be the end.

On Earth, Miller (Jarod Joseph), Hope (Shelby Flanery), Indra (Adina Porter) and Gaia (Tati Gabrielle) are still sorting through the rubble. The Anomaly randomly re-opens, ferrying Raven and the rest of the Eligius prisoners through; Raven has, indeed “saved their a**es.” The prisoners get Echo (Tasya Teles) and Niylah (Jessica Harmon) freed, and they head for the Bardoan army. There’s a tremulous peace as neither side fires a first shot, but both ready for an attack.

A Second Try

Raven and Echo get through to Bardo, where they land in the midst of O and Levitt’s emotional moment. They decide to head back to the area where the armies are stationed to stop the fighting, in hopes they might better everyone’s chances of transcending.

Back in Sanctum, Miller and Jackson get a happy reunion, but Murphy and Emori don’t fare so well: she dies on the operating table. Distraught, Murphy and Jackson pull the mind drive out of Emori’s head and put it in his. She wakes up in her mind space, and Murphy’s there: he’s willing to sacrifice his body to have a few more hours with her. Emori’s none too pleased about that, but just as she starts screaming for Jackson to wake Murphy up, music starts to play—they’ll finally have their dance.

Clarke exits the test to find Raven waiting, and she has to tell her friend she failed. “They should’ve picked you first,” Clarke says, in a nice callback to Season 1. She scurries away to be with Madi (Lola Flanery), and, as Raven watches, the glowing orb turns red. With nothing left to lose, really, she goes through and ends up back on the Ark… with Abby (Paige Turco)! The judge has taken the form of her mother figure—one of the people she loved most.

Winning The War

Raven tries to argue that humanity is going to do better, and to give them some time before wiping them out. The judge says humans are poised to wipe each other out as they speak, and it transports them both to the battlefield, where Team Indra is facing off against the Disciples. Sheidheda stirs up trouble by firing first, and then both sides get going. Levitt, O and Echo show up amidst the chaos, and Levitt charges out onto the field. He attempts to get the truth out about the test and delivers a passionate plea for peace, but Sheidheda shoots him, and the war continues. O runs after him, and Echo runs after O, getting hit in the process. Octavia notes, once they’ve pulled a dying Levitt to safety, that she’s bleeding. “I lost Bellamy,” Echo says. “I’m not losing his sister.” How far they’ve come!

Only by killing Sheidheda can they pause the violence, and, as Raven and the judge watch, Octavia steps out onto the field. She tells everyone that if they truly believe they’re fighting for all mankind, they need to stop the violence, the destruction. She gets through to the Disciples, and the conflict ends.

Transcendence

One by one, everyone turns into glowing balls of light, transcending. Well, there’s one person left who isn’t a happy glowing ball: Clarke. Sadly, much as she did when she was the only one left after Priamfiya, she walks through her old haunts—Earth, the fighting pits, Sanctum—and finds them empty. At long last, she stumbles on one companion, not human. Yep, it’s Picasso, the Primes’ dog.

With Picasso, Clarke heads back to Earth to start a new, lonely life. She seems content enough, just her and her dog, until Picasso charges away. She runs after her and ends up on the beach, where judge-Lexa greets her and breaks it all down. As it turns out, Clarke won’t be able to transcend, but transcendence is a choice. Madi has transcended and she’s perfectly happy, but some weren’t—and as luck would have it, those who chose to return from transcendence were pretty much all of Clarke’s friends. Raven, Murphy, Emori, Octavia, Levitt, Jackson, Miller, Niylah, Echo, Indra, Gaia, Hope and Jordan are all there, happy and together. Clarke’s overcome with emotion. “A curious species,” judge-Lexa notes, and she dissipates, leaving the joyous friends to reunite and spend the rest of their lives on Earth, “the fourteen” instead of “the hundred.”

Whatever comes next, they’ve met again.
