Every once in a while, a celebrity will perform the awesome feat of getting you to re-like them even though they are past the point of ubiquity. Such is the case with Lindsay Lohan’s eHarmony ad spoof for Funny or Die: “I’m recently single — I think,” LiLo says. “I’m looking for a compatible mate who likes a night out on the town, ankle monitoring bracelets, and doesn’t have family members who are quick to issue restraining orders.”
Update: And then every once in a while, a celebrity you already like makes a video that makes you like them even more. It’s all down hill from here, Paul Rudd.
