The Gloss Top Video Pick:
1. Aubrey Plaza As Daria Morgendorffer Is As Perfect As You Expected
Casting deadpan-loving Aubrey Plaza as Daria Morgendorffer seems like it was a long time coming. While I know this revisiting of Daria and her peers is a spoof trailer, it makes me sad that this will probably never become real. I mean, why would it when we could instead have Spider-Man 38? Sad.

Fiona Apple is back with the music video for “Hot Knife” from her album, The Idler Wheel…. Fun fact: it was directed by notable film director (and former Fiona flame), Paul Thomas Anderson. All in all, I dig pretty much everything about this.
Let’s take today’s look at ’90s singers a bit more low-brow with the musical stylings of rapper and chandelier designer Vanilla Ice. This remix of “Ice Ice Baby” is sung entirely in movie quotes. Big bonus points for the use of Jabba’s “solo.” (via Entertainment Weekly)
As promised, we’re out of the ’90s! Though maybe this isn’t totally “modern,” as the song is from 2012 and it’s performed in Jazz Age style. Still, I am unapologetic in my love for this Carly Rae Jepsen song, even long after it has run its course. Hey, in 20 years we’ll all be nostalgic for it.
So I just read about this “dating experiment” regarding two NYC single friends who have decided to just try a relationship with each other for 40 days, because why not? Jezebel dives into all the details, but the video above gives the rules for Jessica and Timothy’s undertaking, which you can learn about at 40 Days of Dating. I have to say though, making a relationship trailer seems like a serious step in the dating game. (via Jezebel)
