Top Videos for 2009 on

To end 2009, we’d like to thank our readers, fans, followers, supporters, the people that granted us interviews, and the people behind the scenes of Without you, our success would not be possible. In 2010, we hope to continue our rapid growth rate.

Here’s some of the top 8 videos for 2009 on

1. Be a Hiro and get Olivia Munn

When we first got contacted on this video being shown during an episode of Heroes, we knew we had to post this. Masi Oka and Olivia Munn in the same short. Olivia Munn even gave us a shoutout on twitter. Speaking of Olivia Munn, she tore it up in the last half of 2009 from hosting the Bingathon to grabbing magazine covers on Playboy, The Hundreds, and her own Hey Olivia to blitzing the late night talk show circuit with Jimmy Fallon, Geroge Lopez, and Carson Daly. BTW – She concludes 2009 and start 2010 on the cover of Maxim Magazine on stands now.

2. Canadian, Please

This video caught us by surprise. A majority of our posts are about Asian American entertainment in the US. When “Canadian, Please” went up, we started seeing an influx of Canadian readers. Props to Andrew Gunadie (aka gunnarolla) and Julia Bentley for this comedic video about Canadian pride. BTW – you can even get the song on Andrew Gunadie & Julia Bentley - Canadian, Please - Single.

3. Lydia Paek with Boxcuttuhz

Remember America’s Best Dance Crew Season 3? We saw the likes of Lydia Paek, Rino Nakasone, Team Millenia briefly, and of course the season winner Quest Crew. We miss all the Asian Americans on the show. BTW – did you see Quest Crew in the music videos for I Wanna Rock with Snoop Dogg x Quest Crew x Far East Movement and Outta Control with Baby Bash x Pitbull x Quest Crew

4. Judith Hill – Heal the World singer at Michael Jackson Memorial

With the sad passing of the King of Pop, we saw the influence he had in the Asian American community including Dance Like Michael Jackson. During the memorial service, we got a chance to see the discovery of Judith Hill with her rendition of Heal the World.

5. Jordan Nagai as Russell in UP

Pixar released UP with one of the central characters, Russell, as an Asian American kid. We didn’t really see that coming as Hollywood whitewashed a lot of Asian American roles like 21, Dragonball Evolution, and The Last Airbender. Props to Jordan Nagai, the voice of Russell.

6. Ken Jeong in The Hangover

Ken Jeong was everywhere this year from films to TV. As Access Hollywood’s Rising Star, he was seen in The Hangover, The Goods, Sayonara Davey for Funny People, and WWE. Currently, he’s on NBC’s Community as Senor Chang.

7. Legion of Extraordinary Dancers (LXD) on So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD)

When Legion of Extraordinary Dancers (LXD) appeared on TV, our site went out of control. Jon M. Chu’s LXD, formerly the League of Extraordinary Dancers, is going to change the way we see dancers in 2010. Get Ready for LXD in 2010. He’s already done it with The Biggest Online Dance Battle in YouTube History, Step Up 2, and the Election Dance Off

8. Charice Pempengco singing at the Presidential Inaugural Gala
The Inauguration of Barack Obama put several Asian Americans in the limelight including Maya Soetoro-Ng – Barack Obama’s Half Sister, Konrad Ng – Barack Obama’s brother-in-law, Jason Wu – Michelle Obama’s Inauguration Gown Designer and Yo-Yo Ma. Charice Pempengco got a chance to perform “God Bless America” at the pre-inaugural gala with Maya Soetoro-Ng and Konrad Ng. A few months later with the help of Oprah, she released Note to God.

We couldn’t stop at 8, so here’s a couple more:

9. Kylie in a Sony Vaio commercial

10. Jin vs Dizaster and Illmaculate on GrindTime

Our party theme music for 2009: Far East Movement’s Girls on the Dance Floor. We’re closing out the year with this song.

Here’s all the top songs in 2009 mashed up into one. United State of Pop 2009 by DJ Earworm (with Black Eyed Peas – Boom Boom Pow and I Gotta Feeling along with Jay Sean – Down)

Chinese Man Throws Bike at Thieves

Making the viral rounds is this video. Two thieves on a motor-scooter flew by and snatched a woman’s purse on a street in Wenzhou, China. Surveillance video shows a man riding a bicycle. As he was passing by the front of a hotel near where the theft happened, he stopped, calmly got off his bicycle, picked it up, and then threw it at the thieves. The bicycle hit them, they lost control, and crashed to the ground.

Pacquiao sues Mayweather

Recently, the Pacquiao vs Mayweather fight was called off. The animosity between the two boxers has taken yet another ugly turn. This time it’s Manny Pacquiao filing a multi-million dollar lawsuit against Floyd Mayweather Jr., Floyd Mayweather Sr., Roger Mayweather, Mayweather Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions executives Oscar De La Hoya and Richard Schaefer, alleging that they made false and defamatory statements accusing him of taking performance-enhancing drugs. It’s looking less likely a fight between Pacquiao and Mayweather will ever happen.

Jin vs Dizaster and Illmaculate in Battle of LA 3 (BOLA3)

The much hyped Jin battles against Dizaster and Illmaculate goes down today in GrindTime’s Battle of LA 3 (BOLA3). Dizaster even created a racist video to call Jin out a second time. Our prediction is that Dizaster will continue down the racist route for this battle. Since Jin’s handled those type of lines in his career, he’ll be more than prepared for it. The real battle will be against Illmaculate. We think Jin will take both battles. Should we call in a double homicide cuz Jin will kill’em both? BTW – Dumbfoundead will also be in attendance.

Although it all goes down tonite, the battle probably won’t be posted for a couple months.

Update: Jin’s battle against Dizaster and Illmaculate at Battle of LA 3 (BOLA3) isn’t happening today. GrindTime didn’t have their act together. In a turn of events, Jin has decide to start his own battle league where rappers will get paid to battle. Watch Jin’s latest video: (if the video is removed, see it here.)

Update: Here’s a conference call with CEO of GrindTime Lush, Dizaster, the saurus, and scimon. They talk about the GrindTime side of what happened with BOLA 3. This whole situation is becoming like the Pacquiao vs Mayweather fight. We’re still looking forward to this battle if it happens and we’re still routing for Jin.

Another update from the CEO of GrindTime as he clears up questions on the Jin situation. He’s gettin’ badgered about it so much he’s got to speak out. Jin’s clearly got the upperhand in this whole situation.

Update: This is getting out of control between Jin, GrindTime, and Dizaster. Dizaster made another video dissing Jin and his family. Dizaster is still acting like a little kid doing anything he can to get attention from Jin. He hurt his own cred with all the crazy videos he’s putting out. This battle may wind up the same way the Pacquiao vs Mayweather fight ended. Never happening. For the record, we’re still Jin supporters.

Jin for the win
