Two Saturdays ago, a LaGuardia Airport worker drove a Southwest Airlines stair car to get pizza for lunch. The New York Post was tipped off to this possible misuse of equipment because that's the tabloid's specialty: cracking down on any sort of proletarian malfeasance that helps make its cranky old readers feel superior about their middling work ethics. Even better, this particular pizza-romping joyride offered the pop-cultural bonus of taking place in a vessel reminiscent of Arrested Development's Bluth Company vehicle.
The trailer for the fourth season of Arrested Development is finally here. Not that the show has been lacking hype; in just the last week alone, Netflix announced plans to set up Bluth's Original Frozen Banana stands in select cities, and a quote from the show was used as an insult in the Canadian House of Commons.
Bluth's Original Frozen Banana stand opened for business today in Britain, marking only two weeks and four days left before Arrested Development returns to Netflix. The promotional pop-up will be traveling through London, Los Angeles, and New York City in the run-up to Sunday, May 26, when all 15 episodes of season four will be available to watch on that magical streaming box in your lap, an occasion which Michael Cera and Jason Bateman will personally commemorate by burning the banana stand to the ground and visiting Jeffrey Tambor in prison. OK, maybe not that last part.
Purveyor of celebrity-themed puns and hybrid creatures, street artist Hanksy has adorned Los Angeles with yet another creative cast of characters. As a sort of antithesis to the serious sanctimoniousness of some street art, Hanksy prefers to make jokes that involve Will Ferrell Cats or Nicolas Cage Against the Machine.
