  • Drunk Russian Teaches Us The Futility Of Existence [Video]

    In this Russian take on classic Commedia dell’Arte, we find a contemporary Pierrot enduring an excruciating, caged existence. He pines for freedom, but his attempts, marred with buffoonery, are increasingly futile. When it looks as though all has failed, our clown resigned to this desolate Purgatory, stuck in an endless cycle of Sisyphean tasks, a lone cherub reveals an egress. Like Beatrice leading Dante from Purgatorio to Paradiso, the hero of this Divine Comedy is able to finally transcend his tortured plane and, perhaps, finally find the peace that has oft eluded him. Fin.

  • Bizarre Japanese Vitamin Water Commercial Celebrates NYC [Video]

    What’s the best way to sell Vitamin Water to the Japanese market? Well if I could answer that, I’d be in Tokyo swimming in piles of yen and not in Jersey rolling pennies so I can get some pork roll for breakfast (every little bit helps!). Whether it’s the best way or not, somebody at Coke had the idea to make this frenetic ode to New York City with a dancing man with a boombox for a head to advertise the tasty beverage often utilized as a hangover cure. Featuring such NYC staples as Ramen Burger, Strollercize, and Nitehawk Cinema, I’m not sure what the video has to do with Vitamin Water, but there is a lot of shouting so I’m pretty sure I should buy some just to be on the safe side.

  • Disguised Drake Gets People’s Honest Opinions About Himself [Video]

    Jimmy Kimmel sent Drake out on the streets in disguise to ask people what they think of the rap star and their reactions to his hosting of the ESPYs (which has yet to actually occur). There were plenty of Drake haters out there but the superstar took it all in stride. A guitar player even freestyled a song chastising Drake for not playing any instruments. He did find one fan with his final reveal, but everyone else was pretty brutal. Fear not, though, he most surely consoled himself in the arms of good friend Lebron James later that evening.

  • Lorde And Joan Jett Perform With Nirvana At Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction [Video]

    Last night Nirvana was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and, as custom dictates, performed a couple hits at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. “But wait,” you say, “Kurt Cobain has been dead for 20 years. How could they ever play live?” In this age of creepy hologram zombies of our favorite musicians of yesteryear, this could be a frightening prospect. But fear not, agèd grunge fan, for surviving members Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and Pat Smear, opted to forgo holograms, instead choosing to perform with other talented vocalists. Lorde sang “All Apologies” and Joan Jett performed “Smells Like Teen Spirit” with the band. Although nobody can replace Cobain, they’re vocals were sufficiently gritty and anguished and the rest of the band sounded great. Also singing with Nirvana last night was Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and St. Vincent’s Annie Clark.

  • 22 Jump Street Trailer [Video]

    The final 3-minute trailer for “22 Jump Street,” possibly the biggest comedy of the year, has hit, and it looks great. This time Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, and their boss, Ice Cube, are going undercover at spring break. Expect more of the same from the first movie, which means “22 Jump Street” will be a hilarious blockbuster when it’s released June 13.

  • Land Rover Transparent Hood Concept [Video]

    Next week at the 2014 New York Auto Show, Land Rover will be presenting its Discovery Vision Concept, setting the tone for its new SUVs. Included in the presentation will be this “Transparent Bonnet Concept” system that uses cameras placed in the grille to capture the terrain below while it appears on the vehicle’s Head-Up Display, rendering the hood invisible. For those who use their Land Rovers for the off-road driving they’re intended for, the system will make navigating narrow tracks and climbing and descending hills and rocks much easier and safer. For more info, check out the press release form Land Rover.

  • Punk Legend John Joseph Gives Juicing Tips [Video]

    Even punk rockers get old. It’s hard to believe that John Joseph, of the legendary Cro-Mags, is 51, and it’s even harder to believe that he is now giving tips on how to make juices and smoothies. He’s traded hard drugs for red chard and algae, but he’s as entertaining as ever in this video form Munchies. Also, if you like John Joseph’s no-nonsense, straight-talk style in this video, be sure to check out his NYC walking tour when it starts back up in May. For more info and tickets, head over to Rocks Off.

  • Spoiler Alert: Supercut Of Every Major Movie Plot Twist [Video]

    Save yourself the time from watching such cinematic masterpieces as “Citizen Kane,” “The Game,” “Arlington Road,” and “Deep Blue Sea” by taking a look at “Spoiler Alert!” from Screen Junkies. And if you have one of those sheltered friends who managed to miss out on all these and now wants to get into movies, ruin their fun by showing them this video. A list of the movies featured follows the video.

  • Incredible Street Art Portraits From MTO [21 Photos and Video]

    Originally from France then relocating to Germany, street artist MTO has created incredible works all over the world. His giant black and white portraits often feature film and music icons, such as Robert De Niro, Jim Jarmusch, Jimi Hendrix, and Bob Dylan. The portraits, averaging between 2 to 3 meters tall, take MTO up to 5 hours to complete. Last year, he also made a documentary titled “FL” about his experiences with the controversy surrounding a mural he painted in Sarasota, Florida. You can check out the film a the end of the photostream. For more of MTO’s work, head over to his Facebook page. 

  • Watch Mike Judge’s New Show “Silicon Valley” On YouTube [Video]

    The nice folks at HBO have decided to save us cheapskates from having to pirate Mike Judge’s new comedy “Silicon Valley” by offering the first episode for free on YouTube. It’s a pretty funny show featuring a ton of people who will have you saying “Hey! It’s that guy from that thing…” So watch the first episode, contemplate buying future episodes, then return to downloading from shady sites and wonder why your computer is overrun with malware, you bum.

  • When Life Gives You Lemons, Feed Them To Babies [Video]

    Directors April Maciborka and David Wile bring you “Pucker,” a heart-wrenching tale where unknowing babies are force-fed lemons to the delight of their adult captors. Filmed in slow motion, the expressions of pain, disgust, and anguish are enhanced by the macabre score, featuring Edvard Grieg’s “In The Hall of the Mountain King.” This tale of voyeuristic Schadenfreude is a rib-tickling romp, sure to delight any YouTube goer.

  • What If The Moon Was A Disco Ball? [Video]

    YouTube greats Vsauce, who makes fun AND informative science videos, and Yeti Dynamics, who makes all sorts of visual effects laden videos about space, have teamed up to answer the age old question, “What if the moon was a disco ball?” Initially, it’s not all that exciting, because it wouldn’t work the fun way we’d expect. But by moving the moon closer and allowing it to quickly rotate, all sorts of awesomeness starts to happen. So watch this video and try to learn a little something that you can share with your friends next time you’re drunk but get all the facts wrong with your inebriated recall.

  • Russian Team Builds Functional Replica WW2 Tank [22 Photos and Video]

    What’s that? You once put a radiator in a 1985 Oldsmobile Delta 88? That’s cool. These Russian dudes just got together one time and rebuilt a World War II German VI Tiger tank. But your mechanical skills are impressive, too, I guess. The functional 1:1 replica tank was built in 2011 for a movie for Russia’s Mosfilm studio. The entire set of over 60 photos can be found on Imgur. Also, check out the video of the initial test drive at the end of the photostream. 

  • Hilarious “Gravity” Alternate Scene [Video]

    Sure, “Gravity” was a great movie, but if they had included this bit, it would have been even better. For more work from the genius behind this, Krishna Shenoi, check out his website, featuring more videos, paintings, music, and photography. Also, his 1950s “Inception” trailer is pretty great, too.

  • Navy Parachute Team Dives Into The Padres Home Opener

    Thank you GoPro or providing a unique look at just about everything exciting in life. The Navy Parachute Team not only got to jump into the Padres’ 2014 home opener, but were able to participate in honoring baseball legend Jerry Coleman by flying a special flag with his initials and trademark star.

  • Time Lapse Of Incredibly Detailed Cityscape Drawing [Video]

    Artist Ben Sack draws some of the most detailed cityscapes you’ve ever seen. To illustrate the insane amount of work he puts into his art, he also creates time lapse videos documenting the process. This video is his most impressive yet and will undoubtedly make you feel terrible for your lack of talent. I know I’m much less impressed by the ample-bosomed stick-ladies i tend to draw after viewing this. For more great artwork, visit Ben Sack’s portfolio and check out his other videos on YouTube.

  • Samuel L Jackson Performs “Boy Meets World” Slam Poem [Video]

    Jimmy Fallon continues his domination of late night TV with Samuel L Jackson’s slam poem about 90s sitcom “Boy Meets World.” Not only does the brilliant poem illustrate the writers’ in-depth knowledge of TGIF, it’s also a pretty accurate take on Def Jam Poetry. I haven’t thought about “Boy Meets World” in years and never thought I watched it much, but hearing Jackson’s beautiful words brought back so many memories. Let’s hope there’s more of these on the way.

  • #CancelColbert Fiasco Summed Up By Taiwanese Animators [Video]

    Have you missed out on the recent Twitter campaign to #CancelColbert over a satirical tweet that some interpreted as racist? What began as a jab at Dan Snyder has caused agitated agitators like Suey Park to call for the end of the Comedy Central program while the original issue of the NFL’s Redskins being offensive to American Indians has been pushed aside. Judging by this animation from Taiwanese Animators, it looks like Suey Park isn’t speaking for all Asians, however.

  • Local Gainesville News Reenacts Game Highlights To Get Around NCAA Rules [Video]

    The local news team at Gainesville, Florida’s WCJB TV-20 wanted to show highlights from the Florida/Dayton Elite Eight game, but due to NCAA regulations, they were not allowed to air the footage. Not being able to contain their excitement over their team’s win, station employees made their own highlight reel by reenacting the game in the office. Oddly enough, this video may now be the highlight of the season.

  • Incredible NYC Street Art [Video]

    Watch and be amazed as this incredible artist creates a sci-fi inspired cityscape in minutes using only spray paint. And he’s doing it on the sidewalk in New York City. I have enough trouble concentrating enough to send a text message when I’m walking down the street and this dude is churning out original artwork like it’s no big deal. Does anyone know where he is? I’d really to check this out in person.

  • Mike Tyson Fights Are Even Better With Street Fighter Sound FX [Video]

    For all of us who grew up playing the Street Fighter videogames in America, we knew the boxer character as Balrog. However, in the original Japanaese version of the game he was known as M. Bison because he was modeled after Mike Tyson. To avoid a lawsuit, the game developers did some name swaps and we ended up with M. Bison as the red-suited dictator played by Gomez Addams in the terrible Van Damme Street Fighter movie. But this was all 20 years ago and nobody is going to sue anymore, so it’s time for Mike Tyson to embrace M. Bison, which he did when he retweeted this video of his fights with sound effects from the videogame.

  • Pharrell’s “Happy” Works Surprisingly Well On Trombone [Video]

    If there’s one thing Christopher Bill’s 130 YouTube videos prove, it’s that he knows his way around a trombone. From classical to jazz to pop, he can do it all. And he doesn’t even need a band. His latest video is a cover of Pharrell’s infectious hit “Happy” made up entirely of trombone loops. What may seem like a goofy novelty is actually an amazing cover that you’ll want to hear more and more. Just listen to that rich timbre! And good news for all you fellow tromboners: Christopher’s arrangements are available on his website.

  • Quiznos House Of Cards/Game Of Thrones Parody Makes For Strange Ad [Video]

    Quiznos was never known for their conventional advertising, as you may remember from those “we love the subs” commercials, and this current ad is no exception. Is it even an ad? Quiznos is mentioned briefly in one scene, but it’s mostly just a pretty good parody of House of Cards and Game of Thrones. With the troubled sub shop recently filing for bankruptcy, is this the sort of move that will turn them around? Who knows! But if the sandwich business doesn’t work out, they seem to have a good handle on producing funny videos.

  • Kurt Cobain Is Alive And He Drinks Fruit Flavored Beer [Video]

    What do Bruce Lee, Kurt Cobain, Elvis, Tupac, Marilyn Monroe, and John Lennon all have in common? You may think it’s that they all died tragically too soon, but Bavaria Beer would have to disagree. The Netherlands’ second largest brewer proposes that those stars are living on a secluded island, aging gracefully while drinking Bavaria Radler fruit-flavored beer. I’m a tad suspect of their choice of beverage, but the commercial is pretty funny, especially when Kurt Cobain gets a disgusting eyeful of an aged Marilyn Monroe.

  • Pepsi Ad Pranks London Commuters With Crazy VFX [Video]

    Pepsi Max UK has released the latest ad in their “Unbelievable” campaign and it is, well, unbelievable. A London bus stop gives waiting commuters a look into an alternate reality where monsters and UFO are commonplace. Cameras outside the bus shelter capture passers-by and places them into all sorts of sci-fi scenes with real-time visual effects. Seeing this before your morning commute may even do a better job at waking you up than drinking the highly caffeinated soft drink.

  • Tom Hanks’ Best Role Yet: Rap Superstar [Video]

    Rap geniuses Buckwheat Groats have teamed up with everyone’s favorite actor, Tom Hanks, for their newest video. Sort of. Well, they rap about Tom Hanks and they superimposed his face, so it’s almost looks like he’s making it rain in the club and drinking Hennessy. What about the lyrics? Well, any song that shouts out “Sleepless in Seattle” director Nora Ephron gets props from us. It’s just too bad that Tom’s own rapper son Chet Haze didn’t come up with the idea first. Maybe Chet can start a feud with Buckwheat Groats.

  • Drummer Plays Every Green Day Song In 5 Minutes [Video]

    Drummer Kye Smith wanted to pay homage to Green Day for getting him into music and drumming when he was young, so he created a medley of all of their songs. Then he played along on the drums. That’s over 90 songs in 5 minutes. If nothing else, this video will remind you how great the first 4 Green Day albums were. Time to fire up Spotify…

  • CNN’s Don Lemon Proves Why We Need Science Education [Video]

    You can’t blame CNN’s Don Lemon for wanting to get to the bottom of the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370 and with the cable network’s 24/7 coverage of an event we still know very little about, it’s bound to be difficult to find something to talk about. But black holes? Really? At least Lemon prefaces his question of black holes being responsible with “I know it’s preposterous, but…” Then he asks an expert, former Inspector General for the Department of Transportation Mary Schiavo, her thoughts. Wait, why would she know about black holes? “A small black hole would suck in our entire universe so we know it’s not that.” Hmph. Well that’s not true, but at least she wasn’t the one who posed the question. The whole exchange just comes off like a Perd Hapley segment on “Parks and Recreation.”

  • If Google Was A Real Person, Part 2 [Video]

    College Humor has made another “If Google Was a Guy” video and it’s just as great, if not better, than its predecessor. Brian Huskey again stars as Google who must endure nonsensical and disgusting queries from all sorts of people. He even has to cover himself in paint splatters for Jackson Pollock’s birthday a la Google doodle. There’s some topical humor thrown in, with jabs at Google Glass and the NSA. The most amazing part, however, is that Milana Vayntrub is hot even when asking about why her farts stink.

  • Motorcycle POV From Isle Of Man TT Race Feels Like A Videogame [Video]

    This incredible video shows you just what the racers see at the Isle of Man TT Race. Hop on Michael Dunlop’s bike as he races at speeds over 120 mph trying to catch John McGuinness and Cameron Donald. Smack a speedometer on the screen and you’d swear it was a videogame, especially when they take those crazy turns. The best part of the video is that their is no lame EDM track playing, just the sweet sound of the bikes.

  • Arcade Fire Covers “Motownphilly” [Video]

    It looks like Arcade Fire is on a trend of playing unique covers for each city they perform in on their current tour. They covered Canadian indie rockers The Constantines at their Toronto show last week and last night in Philadelphia they played “Motownphilly.” The song that made Boyz II Men famous over 20 years ago may seem a bit of an odd choice for Arcade Fire, and the performance comes off somewhat awkward, but it was a valiant effort. At least they didn’t attempt “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday.”
