TJ Miller And The Shock Top Wedge Blast Super Bowl Commercials [WATCH]

TJ Miller, the cutthroat comic relief star of Silicon Valley, made an appearance during one of the Super Bowl commercials in which he and the Shock Top wedge (with the sunglasses and mohawk) mercilessly mocked each other.

Today, the duo has released a video of themselves watching all the biggest super bowl ads (including their own) and judging them with the brutality and veracity of the Harvard Admissions Board.

What makes the video particularly hysterical is the semi-improvisation. Aside from a few of the more obvious remarks, many of the comments made by the orange-and-comedian duo were not prepared or rehearsed ahead of time, unlike their original 30-second ad. That dash of unpredictability is what makes this video particularly funny.

Check it out below and see if you agree with their assessments of the Super Bowl commercials.

Seriously though, I’d rather live in a giant fart bubble made by walruses than watch that puppymonkeybaby commercial ever again. For shame, Mountain Dew; for shame.

All Supermarkets In France Are Now Required to Give Unsold Food to the Needy

The French government enacted a law on Wednesday making it mandatory for supermarkets in France to donate unwanted food to food banks or charities.

The petition was launched by local councilman Arash Derambarsh and was unanimously passed by the country’s senate, reports the Independent. The effort was reportedly campaigned by anti-poverty groups who were opposed to food waste. These groups are now hoping the rest of the EU follows suit with a similar law.

Fines of up to 75,000 euros ($83,700) or two years in prison will be incurred for those who violate the new law which applies to any supermarket that covers a minimum of 400 square meters of floor area.

It has been a practice of some local supermarkets to pour bleach over the discarded food or to lock them in warehouses to prevent foraging.

Jacques Bailet, head of Banques Alimentaires, a network of French food banks, told the The Guardian that “it would greatly increase an already emerging trend for supermarkets to donate to food banks.”

“In terms of nutritional balance, we currently have a deficit of meat and a lack of fruit and vegetables. This will hopefully allow us to push for those products,” said Bailet.

The legislation is widely seen as simplifying a complicated process of donating directly to charity.

Each year over 7.8 million tons of food are wasted in France while 1.4 billion tons are wasted worldwide.
