Welcome to GUY CODE, the official blog of MTV2's "Guy Code" series and your online destination for all things dude, including—but not limited to—irreverent commentary on sports, hip-hop and ladies. Stay awhile and flex your manhood.
Every once in awhile, NERF invites a bunch of media people to drink free booze while testing out their new rifles, machine guns, crossbows, blasters and balls. Somehow, Guy Code Blog scored an invite to this party and I decided, while half-buzzed on rum-infused snow cones, to stage a throwing contest. Inspired by just having watched this video, I made everyone throw with their off-hand. Most threw lefty, but we did have a few lefties who threw with their right.
Watch and enjoy a bunch of adults playing with children's toys and looking like idiots.
Check out the full interview and slideshow, but first watch this behind-the-scenes video, "How To Date Me," in which she guides you through your next first date -- what not to say, whether you're obligated to pay, and how drive-thru fast food can be romantic:
Serious "Guy Code" trivia buffs know that Melanie Iglesias loves junk food -- cheeseburgers, chicken nuggets, chocolate -- you name it. That list also includes ice cream. She really, really loves it. And because the world required a demonstration, she filmed this TOTALLY non-suggestive video, in which she licks a cone for more than a minute while a scoop dribbles down her chest in a TOTALLY non-suggestive manner. (Did we mention she's wearing a bikini? She's wearing a bikini. You're welcome.)
When you start a game of pickup basketball, you're always a little unsure of what kind of guys you're going to play against. Who's the best player? Is it you? Can the tall guy actually play? There's a lot of uncertainty involved.
The guys at Dude Perfect have put together this video of almost every type pickup basketball player. It's a pretty comprehensive list; but since we're based out of NYC, we decided to add some NYC specific players. Can you think of any not in the video?
Overexcited Businessman Spectator
Although this guy isn't actually playing, he eats his lunch while watching the game and acts like the annoying, drunk fan at an NBA game.
Guy Who Should Be Playing At Rucker Park
If you're stuck guarding this guy, get ready to feel horrible about yourself the whole game. Read More...
Most guys would be rather excited, upon entering their bedrooms, to discover two women getting it on. But when Joe Budden had that experience, his feelings were mixed -- because he was dating one of them, and they unfortunately didn't invite him to join. (Dude, you can still enjoy the show, even if you're not the leading man!)
Tuesday night marks the premiere of "Charlamagne + Friends," a special one-week series leading up to the VMAs on Sunday, August 25th. It's Charlamagne Tha God's chance to unleash his provocative commentary and interview celebrity friends from the world of hip-hop. In the clip below, Nick Cannon (in cartoon form) recounts the time he survived a crash in Jay Z's aircraft...even though they hadn't yet left the ground.
The problem with a great prank is that it can backfire and get you into trouble. A couple good rules to follow are: 1) don't hurt anyone and 2) don't break any laws.
This prank by Roman Atwood is a perfect example of adhering to those rules. He sets up a tent in a public space and shakes it while playing audio of sex moans. Most passersby think it's hilarious, but the cops aren't so amused. When Roman asks if there's a law against it, though, all they can answer is, "Yeah...there might be."
If one night of Charlamagne's potentially dangerous and politically incorrect rhetoric isn't enough for you, you're in luck. It will air every night through August 24 until the VMAs on Sunday August 25.
To tide you over until then, here's a clip from Charlamagne's new MTV Other animated web series "In Your Head." In the first episode, Big Sean talks about making a pilgrimage to The Eminem Factory outside of Detroit.
Guess who's hosting MTV2's "What's Good" this week … our boy Chris Distefano. You probably guessed that before I told you, with the photos and all.
As always, "What's Good" counts down the three top stories of the week. Starting things off, it's tech news with the big rumor that Apple will release the new iPhone next month. Mac geeks better start waiting in line now, just to be safe.
If you're like us, you can't wait for the weekend to be over so you can watch the next episode of "Breaking Bad." You also wasted most of your week reading theories on how the show is going to end and coming up with your own. It's one of those rare shows that can't seem to do anything wrong. Vince Gilligan could probably write these characters into a romantic comedy and make it amazing, right?
OK, that might not actually be great, but it's at least worth pondering while you kill time waiting for Sunday night. To help you picture how that movie would look, MHK Productions has re-edited some scenes from the show into a hilarious trailer for a movie that we would probably go see.
