This doesn’t belong here: awesome “Home for the Holidays” flashmob + Alec Baldwin kicked off plane

Can’t wait to be home for the holidays!

As I was getting on YouTube this morning to look for a particularly mock-worthy Kourtney and Kim Take New York commercial to discuss today, I found this beautiful little flash mob video. I know, I know, flash mobs are sooo five minutes ago, but this one is pretty cute. Who doesn’t want to watch a bunch of bubbly ladies in pepto-bismal pink dresses sing a unique arrangement of “Home for the Holidays”? You also have to take into account that I haven’t been home in almost seven months and subsequently am insanely homesick. The holidays make it worse, because everyone keeps singing “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” and “Frosty the Snowman.” The end of frosty is far too existential for my taste. I’ll be back again some day? Why are we talking about death and reincarnation in a children’s song? But back to our bubble-gum dress ladies. It’s a lovely surprise to find singing dancing ladies where you least expect them. And you know where I least expect them? As the back-up dancers and soundtrack to my life, following me around and setting my life to music. How about that? You won’t do it, T-Mobile. I dare you.

Speaking of things that don’t normally belong in certain places, Alec Baldwin apparently doesn’t belong on planes. Or at least American Airlines doesn’t seem to think so. As they were taxiing, Alec just couldn’t put down his Words with Friends game on his phone, even after repeatedly being asked to do so. He then tweeted:

“Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt”.

Ooooh, touche Mr. Baldwin. Touche. Well, it didn’t stop the plane from returning to the gate to kick you off the plane. Alec, e get that you’re the more literate Baldwin brother. You didn’t have to go and Words with Friends your way off a plane to try and prove it to us. I mean, come on, your brother Stephen had Hannah Montana’s initials tattooed on his arm so he could cameo on the show, and we were all shocked that he figured out how to spell those. Anyway, there was a Twitter-fight that ensued between Alec and American Airlines ending in this gem of a tweet from Alec: “Last flight w American. Where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950’s find jobs as flight attendants.” That’d be hurtful if it weren’t such a lame comeback. Maybe next time if you say something about not flying Virgin America because you prefer flying with sluts, we’ll laugh with you.


Ciao Bella!
