Yay! The Weekend Videos are back. Sorry for the absence over the past two weeks, but I was lazy, and otherwise preoccupied. But now they're back, so rejoice! And whatever you do, don't miss the last video of the bunch. It's the best.
So, what better way to begin, than with everybody's favourite headbutting Frenchman, Zinedine Zidane. Now, you've probably seen that Zidane headbutt video from the World Cup final about a million times already, but have you seen every different versions of it? Well, now they're all in one place (with a pretty catchy tune) in this
Wouldn't you know it, the buzz for Snakes on a Plane keeps growing. So much so that even CNN is taking notice. Now I don't know if that makes the movie more or less exciting, but I just love being able to say:
However, I think the hype is getting a little out of hand, maybe. I'm really not sure whether this video makes Snakes cooler, but who cares. It's the

So, do you find those "I'm a Mac" ads annoying? Well, you're not the only one. Check out these
, and you'll feel better. Stupid Macs.
You'd think that having Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, Scarlett Johansson, and Michael Caine in a new movie from Batman Begins director Christopher Nolan would probably be some super-awesome Batman/Wolverine flick, but sadly, you'd be wrong. It's actually a movie about magicians called The Prestige, and here is
Another movie about magicians set in the late 1800s, with a really good cast, and a really hot leading lady is The Illusionist. This movie stars Ed Norton, Jessica Biel, and Paul Giamatti, and revolves around an illicit affair between a magician, and an Austrian noble woman. But it looks good, really. Here's
And in what is by far the best video of the week, some mad genius has taken all the scenes with Darth Vader from the original Star Wars, and replaced Vader's lines with dialogue every other James Earl Jones movie. It's just about the craziest thing I've ever seen, and one of the funniest. Whatever you do, don't miss
