Whiling away your last few hours at work? These videos should help make time fly extra fast!

This segment of Hamish & Andy's Reministmas Special aired last week on TEN, featuring Victoria's Werribee Zoo and a couple of very special, very hairy mammals.

The popular duo decided to test the unsuspecting public's gullibility by seeing if they could dupe them into believing they were watching a couple of intelligent gorillas with remarkably human characteristics -- things really start to ramp up at 2:09. They even enlisted the help of Bondi Vet's Dr Chris Brown to lend some credibility to their cause. Would you have been fooled?

X Factor winner Altiyan Childs made an impressions on the judges from the start -- just not the one he wanted. After forgetting the lyrics to Kings of Leon's Sex on Fire during his audition, he was given a second chance and it sure paid off. Perhaps to show how much he improved throughout the competition, Altiyan chose to perform the song again in the grand final, with very different results.

OT: How amazing does Natalie Imbruglia look?!

From the guy who parodied Justin Bieber "Baby" ("Trolling") and Eminem and Rihanna's "Love The Way You Lie" ("Curly Fries") comes this spoof of Enrique Iglesias and Ludacris' " Tonight", entitled "Won't Trade My Pikachu."

With classic lines such as "you don't impress me with your holographic Raichu", we wonder how long it'll be before we see celebrity guests featured on Pokemon?!

Finally, Mumbrella informs us that "Steven Seagal is the second 1990s action star this month to feature in a new Australian ad campaign" -- after Jean Claude Van Damme and The Great DVD amnesty, of course.

Despite scoring a second season of his reality TV show Steven Seagal: Lawman, and currently starring in his first cinema release in almost a decade -- the excessively gory and hilarious Machete, he still has time to spruik Carlton Dry. Apparently the beer makers want to "make the movie of your most funny or exciting story", starring the tough guy as "you." Would your movie include an exploding snag on the barbie, girls in a hot tub or a blonde in a cheongsam awkwardly raking a life-size Zen Garden?
