This week, the world's most popular podcast came to an end, and so did The Colbert Report. Angelina Jolie skipped the premiere of her own movie due to
insulting emails about her being leaked a nasty case of chicken pox, and Justin Timberlake returned to The Tonight Show to sing Third Eye Blind with Jimmy Fallon. Also, The Voice crowned a winner and Clickhole taught us all the proper way to watch holiday classic Love Actually. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
Angelina Jolie's chicken pox: Angelina Jolie has not had a good week. First, the Sony hack revealed that producer Scott Rudin considers her a "minimally talented spoiled brat" and then she was forced to skip the premiere of her movie Unbroken because she came down with a case of the chicken pox. (Definitely chicken pox. Not the embarrassing press questions that would ensue. Definitely.) Watch her announcement here:
Mom yells at political pundit sons: Don't you just hate when your mom embarrasses you in front of all your friends? That's what happened to political pundit brothers Brad and Dallas Woodhouse, whose (amazing) mother called in to C-SPAN this week to scold her sons for arguing with each other on national TV.
The end of "Serial": NPR's insanely addictive podcast "Serial" came to an end this week. If you're going through withdrawal and/or looking for definitive answers about the case, check out this hilarious Funny or Die parody, featuring Michaela Watkins as host Sarah Koenig:
Changing the way you watch Love Actually: It's up in the air (at least among the TVGuide.com staff) whether Love Actually is a pitch-perfect romantic comedy or a depressing sob-fest. But regardless of how you feel about the movie, you'll be able to appreciate this video courtesy of ClickHole, which reveals some secret gems about the film. You'll never look at Love the same way again.
Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake go to summer camp: Take a trip back to 1997 with Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake, who performed a skit on The Tonight Show this week as kids singing along to Third Eye Blind's "Jumper" at "Camp Winnepesaukee."
Stephen Colbert breaking character: In honor of Stephen Colbert's final night hostingThe Colbert Report before he moves on to The Late Show next year, Rolling Stone has put together a 14-minute compilation of Colbert breaking character on his show. We can't keep a straight face either.
