VIDEO: Mitt Romney falls for empty-room April Fools’ gag

http://twitter.com/#!/dgjackson/status/186576828910149633

Mitt Romney’s staff, with help from Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), played a little practical joke on Mitt Romney today at a campaign stop in Milwaukee, WI. Here’s the setup. Romney thought he was going to speak before an enthusiastic crowd after introductions by Ryan and Johnson. He got a big introduction, complete with loud crowd applause and his theme music and, as he stepped out behind the screen with Sen. Johnson he saw that it was all a prank. The room was almost empty.

Here’s the video, straight from Twitter, by his “body man” Garrett Jackson.

April Fools!!

Ellen Gave This School In Detroit A Surprise That Will Change People’s Lives

Like many places in Detroit, Spain Elementary School is broken down and neglected. The school’s roof is falling apart, the gym isn’t functional because of an unsafe floor, and the institution — which is full of talented performers — doesn’t have enough money in its budget to hire even one music teacher.

Ellen DeGeneres was disheartened when she heard about this, so with the help of Lowe’s — and one surprise guest — she decided to give the school one heck of an assembly. Isn’t that De-GENEROUS?

That seems like a ton of money, but given the recent investigation into the potential black mold that is making students and faculty sick, Spain is going to need a lot more than that to give these kids the safe, productive learning environment they deserve.

To donate to Ellen’s Spain Elementary School GoFundMe campaign, click here. If you want to help out the Detroit public school system, check this out.

What Started With One Man And A Cello Turned Into Something You Have To See

If you live in a city and you’ve ever spent time on the internet, you’re probably a little too familiar with street performers and flash mobs.

But you’ve never seen anything quite like this. While performers line city streets all over the world and flash mobs are characteristically entertaining, something unbelievable happens when the two of them collide.

Just ask the people who were in the right place at the right time when they walked through Spain’s Plaça de Sant Roc back on May 19, 2012.

When a little girl dropped some money into a cellist’s hat, passersby were treated to a spectacle that left everyone singing.

Although it was obviously a planned performance, there’s something wonderful about the fact that it all started with one musician, a curious child, and a single coin. In many ways, music is the tie that binds. Its immense reach embraces people from all walks of life.

#ObamaonFallon: Another round of Twitter questions for the prez

http://twitter.com/#!/jimmyfallon/status/194428371659272195

We told you last week about President Obama’s upcoming appearance on the Jimmy Fallon to pander to the youth vote. The show airs tomorrow night.

Fanboy Fallon has been asking Twitter users to send him questions for Mr. Nice Guy. We highlighted the first round of snark here.

After Fallon solicited more Twitter input this morning, here’s your second round of questions that should be asked, but won’t…

@jimmyfallon Why do you hate budgets so much? #obamaonfallon

Maybe all the pandering appearances on late-night comedy shows has something to do with it?

#ObamaOnFallon why does the public think you've done nothing when you've accomplished a TON? What can we do abt this lack of info?

Meanwhile: Parents shelling out big bucks to send their kids to UNC-Chapel Hill will be glad to know the students are dutifully waking up early and standing in line right now…to get into the Fallon/Obama show taping.

Would MAC Ever Release A Selena Makeup Collection?

MAC has responded to a petition urging the company to commemorate the late Mexican-American star.

1. This is Selena Quintanilla. Singer. Performer. Icon. And beautiful person.

2. Currently, there’s a Change.org petition to have MAC Cosmetics, which often features celebrityinspired makeup, dedicate a limited-edition collection to Selena.

3. The petition notes that such a collection would be particularly meaningful for Selena’s Latina fans:

4. Fans are also encouraged to participate by using the hashtag #SELENAQUINTANILLAforMAC.

More than just a lipstick..â¤ï¸ #SelenaQuintanillaForMAC (I signed the petition..) @Change via @pattyrodriguez

7. As of this posting, the petition has amassed over 20,000 signatures.

8. The petition comes amid plans to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Mexican-American singer’s death.

In Corpus Christi, Texas, Selena’s resting place, plans include a two-day festival with live music and a screening of her biopic, Selena, which stars Jennifer Lopez as the singer.

MAC Cosmetics has responded with the following:

“The loyalty and enthusiasm of Selena’s fans are clearly evident and we love this. M·A·C admires the passion and joy Selena brought to the world. She was an amazing person with amazing talent.

‘Class!’ Rob Lowe on ‘The Sound of Music Live!’ (Bonus Bush ‘G Dubs’ Vine)

http://twitter.com/#!/RobLowe/status/408826327341350912

Heh! Class act Rob Lowe praised NBC’s “The Sound of Music Live” with some characteristic self-deprecating snark thrown in. He continued:

http://twitter.com/#!/RobLowe/status/408838242499170304

Awww.

http://twitter.com/#!/RobLowe/status/408844896074616832

Snicker.

http://twitter.com/#!/RobLowe/status/409083146626277377

Indeed.

http://twitter.com/#!/LanceMannion/status/408826931984211968

That he does.

Lowe then added a bonus: He retweeted this Vine tweeted out by his son:

http://twitter.com/#!/RobLowe/status/408500869387128832

“G Dubs!” Perfect.

http://twitter.com/#!/katlady23/status/408559158644834304
