Friday Afternoon Distractions

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

We hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day on Monday. This compilation of "Cinema's Most Disturbing Smooches" is dedicated to all you lovers out there, featuring clips from The Shining, Howard The Duck, The Goonies, A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge, Candyman, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and more.

Finally, fashionistas and geeks unite -- over Chanel make-up robots! We love this animation by Chanel make-up global creative director Peter Philips.

You'd better be serious about quitting before you "Blackmail Yourself" with this anti-smoking Facebook app. Originating in the Netherlands, the page is in Dutch but this clip explains the concept -- are you game?

Do you know what today is? The world premiere of Britney Spears' new music video for "Hold It Against Me", of course. I'm sure you're as excited as we are ... so if you can't wait (and we're sure you can't), check out this 30-second sneak peek.

The 2011 Mardi Gras Film Festival kicked off last night with the hilarious Jim Carrey-Ewan McGregor flick, I Love You, Phillip Morris, which we've dubbed the gay Catch Me If You Can. Festivities continue nightly until March 3, with the Christopher and His Kind tonight, where you can see Doctor Who's Matt Smith "getting his gay on in 1930s Berlin", as a friend put it. Fun fact: director Geoffrey Sax was also behind the 1996 Doctor Who movie.

LOL @ Blackmail Yourself, I uploaded all kinds of embarrassing pics of myself to FB - it's fun. Plus, no one can ever do anything bad to people that know how to laugh at themselves.
