Gin and Topics: Cuppa Cheese! Cuppa Cheese!

By: Gini Dietrich | March 8, 2013 | 

Gin and TopicsIt’s SxSW weekend, which means the entire social media world is in Austin to learn, drink, party, and drink some more.

I’m kind of glad I broke my foot and can’t go. If I were in Austin, I’d want to be riding my bike so I’d be skipping great sessions and then would have wasted my money in buying a ticket.

But for those of you there, have a great time and bring the rest of us back some cool new things to learn more about.

For the rest of us, it’s supposed to be unseasonably warm throughout the country, which means everyone’s snow will melt and shorts and flip flops will once again reign supreme.

Before you head outdoors, spend 10 minutes watching the great videos of the week in Gin and Topics.

Special thanks this week to Mattie Dietrich, Rebecca Todd, Jason Konopinski, and Karl Rectanus.

5. Counting the Yous in YouTube. Everyone loves Sesame Street and they just hit a huge milestone – one billion views on YouTube. They celebrate by having The Count, well, count the “yous” on YouTube.

4. Four-Year-Old Sings “Grenade.” Ellen says, “When I was four, I could point to my belly button.” This is the cutest thing you’ll see on the web all day.

3. Mila Kunis Helps Reporter. This is fantastic! Mila Kunis is interviewed about her new movie, “Oz,” by a reporter who has never talked to a pretty girl, let alone a celebrity. The way she handles him is fun and super classy. Watch how many times he asks her out. I heart her.

2. You May Be Suffering from Hipster. “In extreme cases, Hipster can be found in men as old as 40 living in their mom’s basement.” This is an “ad” for Unpretentiousil to stop douchebaggery and looking and acting the same as everyone else. It also cures going to the Apple store and talking about your bike. Hilarious!

1. Breaking the Barrier. I almost don’t want to tell you what this is about for fear of ruining it for you. All I’ll leave you with is, “Cuppa cheese! Cuppa cheese!” The rest is up to you to discover on your own.

And, with that, I bid you an unseasonably warm weekend.

  • Bwahahahahaha!!! I LOVE the last one!! Why do guys think it’s OK to let it rip in front of us but when we do it it’s so gross?! I LOVE that girl!

  • How much good did Mila Kunis do with that one amazing interview? Who isnt in love with her after that?!

    • @MrTonyDowling Right?! I love how her people are trying to get her to finish the interview, but she’s having too much fun.

      • @ginidietrich She is so very clearly relishing this little departure from the mundane! Its very endearing 🙂

  • Best interview question of all time- “Have you ever dropped trou at a wedding?” “I don’t know if you do this in America, but we watch Baywatch and take our clothes off and dance around.”

    • @RebeccaTodd It was such a great interview. “You have a friend named Sir Dosser?”

      • @ginidietrich “So my mate Dicko is getting married…”

        • @RebeccaTodd  @ginidietrich Lol! I watched this yesterday actually and love how she’s like, alright alright these are the answers to all the questions people ask me about the movie. Then continues with the fun interview.

        • @yvettepistorio  @RebeccaTodd I think she’s absolutely adorable.

        • @yvettepistorio  @RebeccaTodd  @ginidietrich That was my favorite part too! As funny as this video is, so much can be learned from it. ASK BETTER QUESTIONS!

  • Hah and cuppa cheese…my family would call that a Toot Scoop. We also have Pit Blows…yikes.

    • @RebeccaTodd Oh my.

      • @ginidietrich  @RebeccaTodd I’d love to sit in on your families holidays Rebecca!

  • Cuppa cheese is seriously hilarious. My shoulders are shaking I am laughing so hard. Thanks for this. Very much needed today, @ginidietrich

    • @allenmireles I love when she walks by and raises her leg. So funny.

  • UNPRETENTIOUSIL just won the internet. Hahahahahahahaha!

    • Until I saw Cuppa Cheese. I’m dead. Kill me now.
      All of Starbucks now thinks I’m insane,

  • I think I might have to send that last video to my middle sister’s husband and tell him what life is really like. 😉

    • @Joshua Wilner/A Writer Writes Does he not know?!

  • PattiRoseKnight1

    You saved the best for last. LOL!

    • @PattiRoseKnight1 Wasn’t that great?!? My mom is going to be so disappointed in me.

      • PattiRoseKnight1

  • rjmetras

    Hioster is so goodGinny This weeks picks are awsome. Hope your foot feels better

  • I want to be an illegal pusher for Unpretentiousil. I know too many OVER 40s who try their hardest to fit that image. And fail. Miserably. And they have no idea. Happy Saturday, Gini!!! And I’m a little (a lot) happy not to be at SXSW myself…

  • debdobson62

    I love Mila Kunis interview.  That is really very quite funny.

    • @debdobson62 I love how she’s like, “OK. Here are all the answers they want me to give you.”

  • Okay.. omg.. I’m crying now over the last one…Starbucks Iced Coffee!!

  • vilmalove1951
  • Nice. The last one was hilarious!
    And, I freakin’ LOVE the Mila Kunis interview. I saw it earlier this week when a friend sent it to me. It makes me really love her. And man, when she rattles off the answers to all of the questions she typically gets? Classic. Just shows the journalists need to ask better questions!

    • @lauraclick As a PR pro, I appreciated that her publicist was clearly the one saying, “Keep this going!”

  • Aaaaah! I get up this morning and my first thought is “What happened to my hour?” – and my second thought is “cuppa cheese, cuppa cheese” – it’s too early to laugh this hard!!
    PS – how do I get it OUT of my head – since I watched it yesterday,  I have been laughing uncontrollably  whenever it pops into my head!

  • rdopping

    Hey, that was Fiest at the end of The Count. Cool Canadian indie artist makes big. @RebeccaTodd did you catch that? Damn, I may need some soy unpretentiousil…….

  • rdopping

    Now I know what everyone’s on about. Cuppa cheese. The look on that guys face…..

  • Pull my finger….

  • Melanie Tolley Hall

    Love the unpretentiousil.
