Unwilling to choke up big bucks for Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, the brains behind this laugh-free prequel (the Farrelly brothers also opted out) use unknowns to play the mentally challenged heroes back in their high school days. Derek Richardson is pure Eighties nerd as Harry (the Daniels role). And Troy Miller directs Eric Christian Olsen to mug so hard as Lloyd that he looks like Carrey being demonically possessed by Jerry Lewis. The jokes? "Chicks are for fags," says Lloyd. The film is subtitled When Harry Met Lloyd. Believe me, you don't want to be there.

    The Pack | 2006

    Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
