So this adorably insane Japanese girl won some contest in Japan to interview Daniel Radcliffe, who you might know as the kid with the large penis who had sex with horses in the play Equus. Also, he’s Harry Potter. Suffice to say, when Radcliffe pops out, the Japanese girl basically enters a catatonic state of bliss and amazement. Then she interviews Radcliffe and has the chance to — well, maybe not traumatize him in return, but certainly confuse the heck out of him. It’s all pretty fun.
Two things to note — first off, Daniel Radcliffe seems like a pretty okay dude. He was sweet and sincere to this crazy girl, and absolutely made her life. He didn’t have to play along nearly as well as he did; bully for him. Second of all, the girl’s wearing a shirt that says “RAGE GET” on it. I want it so bad. (Via Great White Snark)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
