In South Korea, there is a popular TV (and completely wacky) variety show called Infinite Challenge
. From what I've been able to gather, contestants go through a series of challenges with celebrity guests.
In January 2016, as part of a promotion for the film Kung Fu Panda 3, Jack Black guest starred on the show. In this segment, he is shown with wearing headphones and bouncing his arms around, all while listening to K-pop.
The challenge for the Korean contestants is to guess what song Black is hearing simply by listening to him sing the song back. Of course, Black doesn't speak Korean which makes the whole segment quite entertaining.
According to this article, Black appeared on the show for free and was "more like a friendly friend" with the cast and crew:
“It was Jack Black’s first time with the members, and there were difficulties in communication. Even worse, we were limited on time,” producer Kim Tae Ho said. “Though we were worried into the beginning of the filming, these concerns were soon unnecessary. Jack Black was so committed to the show. Time was not an issue. We even had the luxury to take breaks in between.”
“It’s difficult to film an hour and a half worth of film time in only four hours,” he added. “We were only concerned about entertainment, but in the end, this was a time for us to learn about making other people laugh and look back into our original motives. Both Jack Black and the members hoped that this would not be their last encounter.”
Last year, he appeared on the show again and hopes to return for a third time.

Alexey Rom sequenced (arranged?) the disco classic Rasputin for an 81-key Marenghi Organ that was in existence at the same time as Russia’s greatest love machine. Now there was a cat that really was gone; it was a shame how he carried on. The original, for reference:
Judy Blume is Amanda Palmer's ballad in honor of the author's 80th birthday, celebrating her decades of service in helping young women to navigate a world that labels them as crazy and vain, the nagging sense that it's "just me": "The experiences of her teenage characters ― Deenie, Davey, Tony, Jill, Margaret ― are so […]
Trains may not be the most popular means of conveyance nowadays, but chances are you grew up playing with toy trains or building a model set to wrap around the Christmas tree. In either case, it’s safe to say that locomotives have long carried a unique sense of awe and scale, especially when they’re hundreds […]

For many startups and fledgling businesses, web hosting — and the fees associated with it — can take a sizeable chunk out of the company budget and limit growth down the road.
