Leave it to The Simpsons to include a completely random pig juggling scene in the middle of an episode! Here it is in case you missed it:
We’re hoping no cartoon pigs were harmed during the filming of this episode!
Here’s a short film by Alex Lee that beautifully expresses the reasons why jugglers juggle.
Transitioning from four to five balls! Pirouettes! Juggling off of someone’s face! A neck catch finish! Who knew Will Ferrell was such a skilled fake juggler!
Is this a nice tribute to the power of juggling as a motivational tool? Or an insult to the Juggling Subculture? We’re not sure, but it did make us laugh pretty hard!
Remember: Nothing’s impossible!
Curious what it takes to produce a juggling commercial?
Here’s a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the work that went in to making the Noem Mix Trinkfrucht commercial we posted about earlier this week.
It’s fun to see the junior actors entranced by their juggling colleague.
Commercials that feature juggling make us happy. Sure they’re ripe for awful cliches and false juggling stereotypes–so many clowns!–but we still like seeing the Juggling Subculture represented on the small screen.
Here’s a new one we found. It’s an Austrian commercial for some sort of super fruit drink called Noem Mix Trinkfrucht. It stars juggler Manuel Mitasch.
Frank Pizarro of the FDNY explained, “it worked, because the fire department, fire, torches flying everywhere . . . it’s really a fun project. And it’s going to educate young people especially, as to fire safety.”
FKB and FDNY will film the PSA in a couple of weeks. We’ll let you know when it hits the airwaves.

In a recent interview on Remote Patrolled, Nick Pike opens up about his America’s Got Talent experience. He discusses the three acts he was able to perform, his minor feud with judge Piers Morgan, and his post-AGT plans.
When asked if he would have done anything differently, Nick says:
I have no regrets. I achieved what I set out to do – and then some. I had a lot of fun performing and meeting all the other contestants on the show. I would love to thank all of my supporters and fans out there, and challenge any of my critics to get out of their arm chair audition for the show, make it to the top 48, and then get back to me!!

It seems that Dexter only appeared on the childrens’ show twice, but we were impressed with the skill that must have gone in to creating a Muppet that can carry on a conversation and juggle.
The cruise ship juggler–who suffered the fate of nearly all jugglers on the popular talent competition last week–was invited back to join the top 48 line-up in Hollywood last night.
Nick received this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity when the sword swallowing act of Twisted Trystan and Krystan withdrew from the competition.
Here’s his performance from last night:
That’s right, even though they brought him back, the judges gave Nick nothing but grief. Luckily the judges no longer decide who moves forward. Nick Pike’s fate is now in the hands of the American public.
We should have seen it coming.
Last week, the few jugglers that got through to Las Vegas on America’s Got Talent were quickly sent packing.
In what seems like an endless supply of rejection, the jugglers were once again dismissed from the summer talent show, despite demonstrating skill far beyond many who were put through to Hollywood.
Those of us in the Juggling Subculture are once again left scratching our heads, wondering if any jugglers will ever be given a the chance to present their talents to the American public.
Here’s Nick Pike‘s Vegas performance:
