Have you seen the trailer for the new Zac Efron movie? Looks about as enthralling as filling up your car with gas. Not a movie critic here, but luckily you don’t need to be — or even see the entire movie, for that matter — to discern just how incredibly stupid it is. The trailer speaks for itself.

So this happened: Katie Couric conducted a suprisingly decent interview with Skrillex, King of The Dubstep, who’s been whipping crowds into a frenzy since 2011, as she puts it.

From skateboarding to skydiving, we’ve all seen those GoPro cameras used to capture an assortment of ill-advised adrenaline-fueled adventures most of us would never risk.
