Ellen: Valentine’s Day
Today was Ellen’s Valentine’s Day show, and she got her boogie on with the Cupid Shuffle. Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love and beauty, and Ellen said she’s learned the most about love from The Bachelor. Love is everywhere, in Ellen’s audience, in nature and at the bottom of a wine box. Ellen said there is more pressure for couples on Valentines – they have to set up dates, buy flowers, get gifts. It’s a very commercial holiday.
Ellen’s Australian Weight Loss Ad
Unbeknownst to Ellen, she is in an Australian weight loss ad on Facebook. Of course, the company will be hearing from Ellen’s lawyer. Before they take the ad down, let’s all have a little laugh shall we?
“I Lost 13 kg in 28 Days! After her 2nd child, she added an extra 13 kilos and used this 1 secret to lose it all!”
First of all, Ellen’s never had a child. And second, it might be a lot funnier if we had the conversions. If you see this ad, just know it’s not real.
Ellen: Weekly Tweetly Roundup
All of Ellen’s favorite tweets this week have to do with relationships.
Jesse: “I don’t think I’ll ever forget my ex-girlfriend Julie because she married my dad and I live with them.”
Lauren: “All the guys at this party must be too shy to ask for my number. I’ll just yell it.”
Shane: “My medic alert bracelet warns first responders that I kiss back during CPR.”
Brian: “Probably the worst part about being a penguin is after you’re in an argument, you’ll try to waddle away angrily but still look adorably cute.”
Mike: “The woman that the song ‘You Are So Beautiful’ was written for must have felt really beautiful when she heard it, until the ‘…to me’ part.”
Ellen: Amy Speaks Song Lyrics
Ellen sent her writer Amy out to speak to strangers using only song lyrics. She sent Amy to Universal Studios Hollywood to speak only song lyrics. She got people with Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know” and “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me” by Culture Club.
She had a lot of people saying no, they wouldn’t hurt her. That’s comforting.
Ellen: Run the Australian Outback
Two lucky audience members got to dress up as kangaroos to play for tickets to Australia. Nina and Darcy threw a boomerang in a bucket, stuffed their pouches with five baby roos, covered a lifeguard with suntan lotion and stuck themselves to a velcro wall.
