1. We Invented Planking
Here’s a picture of us inventing planking. I guess that means we’re also indirectly responsible for owling, coning, leisure diving, horsemanning, batmanning, tebowing, and every other viral posing phenomenon that came after it. So… you’re welcome for all of those.
2. Wrote and Starred In The Video For Rebecca Black’s “Friday”
Basically, it had been a long week and we were totally ready for the weekend. And we wanted to do it right, you know? Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday! We called up our friend Rebecca Black (had met her in line to see Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 a few months before) and she was IN. Little did we know how huge our collabo-jam was going to get. Grammy Awards: we’re still waiting on y’all.
3. Performed During The Half Time Show At The 2012 Super Bowl
As a personal favor to Madge, we agreed to appear on the Super Bowl Halftime Show. Mind you, we’re a bit rusty, but we pulled it together. Splits? Check. Handstands? Check. Put us in, Coach, we’re ready to endzone dance.
4. We Were Both Maids Of Honor At Kim Kardashian’s Wedding
Wouldn’t YOU want us to preside over your wedding? Our dear friend Kim’s lasted 72 days so things can really only go upward from there. There ain’t nothing like true love. *one guy puts arm around around other guy’s shoulder*
5. We Took Home The Gold In Pairs Figure Skating During The Vancouver Olympics
Oh, you didn’t recognize us? We were just wearing a lot of makeup. Took weeks to get off. Worth it? Absolutely—I mean, how many Olympic gold medals for pairs figure skating do YOU have?
6. We Both Starred In The Hit Film, The Social Network
Heard of it? You know, the movie that got nominated for seven Academy Awards last year? Yeah, it won three of them—Film Editing, Best Original Score, and Adapted Screenplay—and we were the ones who edited it, wrote the score, and penned the screenplay. It’s getting pretty crowded in the ol’ trophy case, what with all those Olympic gold medals lying around, too.
7. We May Or May Not Have Caused The Eruption Of Eyjafjallajokull In Iceland
Listen, we’re not saying we caused the eruption. Were we in Iceland when it happened? Yes. Were we experimenting with mixing diet soda and mint candies at the time? Probably. It’s hard to say. It’s all kinda a blur.
8. We Were Invited To Attend The Wedding Of Kate Middleton And Prince William
It was an honor for the royal family to invite us to their wedding! We got to rub elbows with all the wonderful hat-wearing ladies. And we even had tea with Princess Eugenie of York and Princess Beatrice of York. (Sorry you weren’t invited Dutchess Fergie.)
9. Don’t Tell Anyone, But We Totally Invented Wikileaks
We’re total advocates of free speech, you know? We should have access to all the important information in the world, like if there’s a shortage in cute cat videos to watch on the internet or if Dancing With The Stars is going to get cancelled.
