In this heartwarming video, Ben Stiller introduces his "avatar" family, and provides the kind of scintillating online commentary that has made Twitter and Facebook such invaluable parts of the celebrity experience.

We can't help but wonder if the inspiration for this move was prodigous Twitterer, Lance Armstrong. Stiller spent a good chunk of July hanging out at the Tour de France with his cyclist buddy, even participating in one of the strangest podium presentations ever when he begrudgingly handed over a stuffed lion to Fabien Cancellara (who had beaten Armstrong to the yellow jersey by fractions of a second).  Since then, he's clearly had a masterclass from the Armstrong school of 21st century communication. Perhaps Lance also had a quiet word about those blonde highlights.
