3 April 2015 2:30 PM, PDT

The selfie stick stupidness strikes again! These photo props may be banned from museums and certain music festivals, but they are still welcome on ski slopes ... for now. A snowboarder who thought it was a great idea to film himself riding down a mountain - instead of paying attention to said mountain - felt the pain of this decision. Too focused on perfectly shredding powder for all his viewers, the sportsman in this video isn't aware of how close he is to the slope's chairlift, until it hits him in the head.

Kristen Wiig Looks Unrecognizable in Character for Zoolander 2

3 April 2015 12:30 PM, PDT

We can only guess that's not her Blue Steel face. Kristen Wiig underwent an amusingly shocking transformation for her role in Zoolander 2. The Bridesmaids star, 41, looks comically weird in an over-the-top power suit, cringe-worthy plumped lips and drawn-on eyebrows. But the real topper? The upside-down V hairstyle that seems straight out of Whoville. The Saturday Night Live alum donned the getup while filming in Rome Wednesday, joining a cast that once again includes Ben Stiller in the titular role, plus Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson of the first film. Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West are also rumored to »
