Now Trending at Mekanism (Jan 24th – Jan 28th)

So there a few funny things happened on the internet this week.

1) Taco Bell has been accused of not using 100% meat in their tacos. Anybody you knew that thought they ever were should be 100% not your friend ever again.

2) The Old Spice guy is back. And it’s funny. But we might be getting towards the part where we were cool with them making a sequel but if this becomes one of those “Friday The 13th Part 17″ things? We’re gonna get bored. Switch it up a bit guys.

3) We found out Oprah had a sibling. Wait was that last week? That was last week. Also: why is this interesting? Somebody famous has family members. What’s next, are we going to find out people eat food to survive?

Basically, feels like this year has some humor potential . We are a month in and we’ve had a good amount of humor roll in. And i’m pretty excited about it. On with the show.

Here’s what’s trending at Mekanism this week.

Chin Lu (@ChinHuaLu): Limbaugh Being Racist.

The Colbert Report Mon – Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c
Rush Limbaugh Speaks Chinese

Oh, Rush Limbaugh. That’s not okay to do.

Aaron Sanchez (@AVSinSF): Kids Krumpin

You know how you’re presumably really bad at dancing. And everyone’s like “awww just try, it’s not like you’re as bad as a little 8 year old!”… they’re lying to you.

Ryan Lee (@owlsquid): Furry’s Dancing

I don’t know why furry’s dancing together is hilarious. But…oh nevermind furry’s dancing or doing anything is always funny. Always.

Gino Click (@ginobot): Portland Cello Project Covering “All Of The Lights”

This is pretty incredible. If Kanye west saw this, he’s probably say, “WOW THIS IS AMAZZZZZZING THIS IS THE BEST I’VE EVER SEEN BESIDES THE STUFF I DID. THIS IS GONNA CHANGE EVERYTHING. I’M GONNA CHANGE EVERYTHING. WE RUN THIS!” Just a guess, there.

Evan Romano (@ROMSKIII): Tracy Morgan is really inappropriate and really funny.

Yeah. Wildly inappropriate. But hey, you laughed.

See you all next Friday.

Meet a Mekanista: Duran Rose

You know what’s funny? Photoshopping anyone’s face on Michael Jackson. That’s a legitimate fact. It’s even funnier when the guy who you do it to has a pop star name on top of that.

I’m just not sure I need to add any words beyond that.

Meet Duran.

It’s like being on an all-star team. Only we’re not really talented athletes, and ironically, that’s probably how we got on this list: we’re finally getting noticed for being the creative kids who were bad at sports so they focused on their computer skills.

We’d like to say thanks to Advertising Age for putting us on the Agency A-List 10 to Watch List. The nine other agencies are pretty damn awesome, and we’re happy to be the other one. We love what we do, and it’s pretty awesome that other people love it as well.

So, yeah. Thank you very much to everyone that’s let us work for them. And if you haven’t yet, give us a call. We’ll gladly come up with an idea like “Business Jesus” for you, too.

We’ll even have the balls to pitch it to your boss.

Here’s to 2011. Let’s make some cool sh*t together.
