• Nike Shows How Rory McIlroy Trains Off The Course [Video]

    Want to feel better about yourself? Before he started seriously training, Rory McIlroy, the world’s number one golfer, could barely balance on one leg for more than 10 seconds. That was in 2010. Now five years later, with the help of instructor Michael Bannon, caddie JP Fitzgerald, and exercise physiologist Dr. Steve McGregor, McIlroy is at the top of his game. Learn how he trains off the course in this new documentary series from Nike then take a closer look at Rory McIlroy’s routine and training gear.

  • The Stallone Kill Count Supercut Is Morbidly Impressive [Video]

    Last year a viral video hit showcasing every kill from Arnold Schwarzenegger and we were impressed (and perhaps a little disgusted). But how do you follow up such a video? Who could possibly compare to Arnold? Sylvester Stallone, of course! The star of the increasingly violent Rambo series puts even Arnold to shame. We won’t give away any numbers, but to give you an idea, the Arnold video was 28 minutes long whereas Stallone’s is 34. That’s a lot of senseless violence.

  • Is This A True Augmented Reality Demo Or Just A Gimmick? [Video]

    Last year Google invested $542 million in Magic Leap and at the time, nobody really knew what the company was up to. And now we’re still not entirely sure, but if this video is any indication, the company is onto something huge. The video begins with some standard augmented reality apps for checking email and the like, but when a game is launched, things get awesome. An office is transformed into a level from a first-person shooter in a totally immersive environment. Let’s just hope it’s the real deal and not a marketing gimmick.

  • Take A Drone Tour Of South America In HD [Video]

    Have you ever wanted to tour South America but you suffer from a lack of pesos and reais? That’s alright, you pathetic bum, because Adam Humphrey made this incredible video that you can watch from your mom’s basement. Adam backpacked across South America, traversing over 11,000 miles through Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador, Brazil, Argentina, and Peru, with a Nikon D60 and DJI Phantom 2 with GoPro Hero 3. And the result is amazing.

  • Watch Police Dispose of 20,000 Pounds of Seized Fireworks in a Spectacular Fashion

    How long does it take to detonate 20,000 pounds of fireworks? The answer, courtesy of the Midland, Texas, Police Department, is 3 1/2 days. A court ordered the destruction of the illegal fireworks. The department’s bomb squad, along with those from Odessa, Lubbock and Amarillo, assisted the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in the controlled detonation. And what does an uncontrolled detonation look like? Here’s the answer — in the form of San Diego’s 4th of July failed extravaganza in 2012: — Source: NPR.org

  • This Northern Lights Time Lapse Looks Like Something From Hollywood [Video]

    While doomsday cults are shouting about how the increased solar activity indicated our imminent destruction, we’re just enjoying all the great aurora borealis photos that result. And this video may just be the best footage we’ve ever seen of the northern lights. Back in February, photographer Alexis Coram packed up her Nikon D800 with Sigma 35mm and Nikon DF with Sigma 15mm FE along with her Induro Tripods and spent four nights outside of Fairbanks. The first two nights were overcast, and Alexis worried her trip would be for naught, but the next two nights were positively electric, allowing hours and hours of footage to be captured. The result is this incredible time lapse video, “Awake.” And if you’re a fan (how could you not be?), be sure to check out more amazing photography from Alexis Coram.

  • Art Experts Tricked By IKEA Print [Video]

    Let’s face it, art is subjective. Everyone has their own opinion as to what is good and what isn’t. But unfortunately, many find themselves defending works simply because they are in a gallery or museum. Or they believe that because they like a piece, it must be wort an exorbitant amount, as if a dollar sign legitimizes their taste. Viral content producers Lifehunters illustrated these tendencies perfectly when they placed an IKEA print in a gallery and asked for opinions on the piece of art. The passersby raved and believed it to be an expensive work. Does this prove the stupidity of the art world? Not at all! It simply proves that if we like something, we should enjoy it no matter if it’s a Picasso or an IKEA. Well, unless it’s a Thomas Kinkade. That dude sucks.

  • Brilliant Caller Trolls C-SPAN With Fresh Prince Theme [Video]

    During C-SPAN’s Wahington Journal show today a call came in from Jack from Bel Air. Jack went on to talk about how he was actually from Philadelphia. West Philadelphia to be precise. Then he just kept going… But after a little research, we realized this wasn’t the first time Jack trolled the network. Here are some previous calls where Jack tells C-SPAN to suck his balls and let’s them know where they can stick cucumbers. At some point, they should probably stop taking calls from Jack on the Republican line.

  • Jurassic Park Remade In Lego Stop-Motion [Video]

    What happens when a father and daughter who love Lego and Jurassic Park get together with all their friends? Something pretty damn amazing, apparently. Six Lego collections were combined, over $100,000 worth of bricks, to recreate Spielberg’s classic Jurassic Park from 1993. It took about three months to make and all the hard work shows. The father and daughter team have made other Lego videos, too, that you can check out on YouTube, but none as epic as this.

  • The First Spacewalk Was 50 Years Ago Today…But It Almost Wasn’t A Success

    At 4:35 AM EDT on March 18, 1965, man walked in space for the first time. Cosmonaut Alexei Leonov left his comrade Pavel Belyayev and the comfy confines of their Voskhod 2 and made history. Leonov was only 30 years old at the time and his spacewalk lasted just a little over 12 minutes, but such a duration was probably for the best. 8 minutes into the historic feat, Leonov realized his fingertips weren’t touching his gloves and his feet were floating in his boots. His suit was inflating and he needed to get back to his airlock by somehow maneuvering his 18 feet of lifeline. Worst of all, he was approaching orbital sunset, which would leave him in pitch black. Leonov needed to act fast. “After calculating the amount of time in light and oxygen supply left, I decided to drop the pressure inside the suit … knowing all the while that I would reach the threshold of nitrogen boiling in my blood, but I had no choice.” With the pressure relieved, Leonov had to then quickly make his way to the airlock. He was ultimately successful, paving the way for Ed White to complete the first NASA extra-vehicular more »

  • The Simpsons Get A Minecraft Makeover [Video]

    In case you don’t have any gamers in your life, Minecraft is the hugely successful, multi-platform, open world game with no particular objective other than gathering materials and building cool stuff. Kids all over the world are obsessed with it and Microsoft recently purchased it for $2.5 billion, so it’s a pretty big deal. Because of the open nature of the game, creative folks are always coming up with interesting Minecraft recreations of real life places. But that gets boring after a while, because if we wanted to see a real place, we’d just really go there. But we can’t go to Springfield, because the damn creators won’t tell us what state the Simpsons live in! So we’ll have to enjoy this Minecrft recreation from Bearly Regal instead.

  • If Anyone Can Motivate You To Break The Deadlift Record, It’s Arnold Schwarzenegger [Video]

    27-year-old English strongman Eddie Hall recently broke the world record for the deadlift when he lifted an unbelievable 1018 lbs at the Arnold Classic Australia. As incredible as it is watching Eddie accomplish the feat, the best part of this video has to be Arnold Schwarzenegger excitedly cheering on the strongman. Honestly, if I had Arnold at my side, I could probably break the deadlift record, too. Probably.

  • Watch The Hilarious “How to Become Gluten Intolerant” Video That’s Taking The Internet By Storm

    “Being gluten intolerant means you are entitled to tell people about the offensive things that happen to you if you eat gluten.  Because they’re not gluten free, they’re obligated by law to listen,” says Awaken with JP in his new video that pokes fun at the expense of people who are gluten intolerant. He goes on… Being gluten free used to be a luxury only reserved for those who are intolerant to gluten. With this cutting edge gluten educational video, you can become gluten intolerant too, whether or not you’re actually intolerant to gluten. In the new age, if you’re not living gluten free, you’re getting left behind. Here’s your chance to jump on the new age conscious band wagon! We’re going to keep our opinions about gluten to ourselves and just say that this video is taking the internet by storm and if you’re not familiar with JP he produces funny, not intended to be humorous, style video and is most well known for his original viral success with “Being Ultra Spiritual” which you can watch below.

  • The Robots That Will Destroy Mankind Now Have A Rad 80s-Style Montage [Video]

    The undoubtedly evil Boston Dynamics has been scaring the pants off us recently with their Atlas and Petman robots that will surely usher in the end of mankind. But when life hands you destructive automatons, make a rocking 80s montage of destructive automatons! Sure, these robots will kill us all once Skynet becomes self-aware, but for now we can point and laugh as they stumble through various obstacles set to “Push It To the Limit” from Scarface. Let’s just hope that a mixture of hubris, paranoia, and cocaine addiction will also be the downfall of Atlas and Petman.

  • Mike Tyson Uploaded A Mike Tyson Supercut [Video]

    Last week Jamie Foxx was interviewed on The Breakfast Club and revealed that he is set to star in a Mike Tyson biopic directed by Martin Scorsese and written by The Wolf of Wall Street screenwriter Terence Winter. Nobody in Scorsese’s or Tyson’s camp verified the story at the time, but yesterday Mike Tyson posted this YouTube video titled “Pick My Best Knockouts for Jamie Foxx” with the description “Help me pick my 10 best knockouts to feature in the Mike Tyson story starring Jamie Foxx and directed by Martin Scorsese.” Sounds like it’s really going to happen! So what are you waiting for? Relive the glory days of “Iron Mike” and let him know your favorite knockouts. And even if this whole story is a bunch of bull, we’re just happy to finally have all these fights in such great quality on YouTube.

  • Alert John Connor: Liquid Metal Robots Are Becoming A Reality [Video]

    We wish this was just some viral marketing stunt for Terminator Genisys, but it seems pretty legit. Scientists in Tsinghua University in Beijing, China who are obviously intent on ushering in the end of mankind have developed shape-shifting liquid metal. Using mostly gallium, a soft metal that melts at just 85 degrees fahrenheit, along with a touch of indium and tin, the scientists were able to propel the concoction by placing it in sodium hydroxide or even brine and using an aluminum flake for fuel. The liquid metal moves around for about an hour and is able to travel in a straight line or squeeze through a more complex path. The liquid metal seems to alter its shape as it sees fit to travel, just like T1000. The researchers hope this is the first step in creating liquid metal robots that can reshape on the fly. We hope this isn’t the beginning of the end.

  • Finally! Fertile Finns Fashion Flying Snowmobile [Video]

    Snowmobiles are fun and all, but if there is one complaint that we’ve all had at some time or another, it’s that the damn things don’t fly. But where the rest of us have resigned ourselves to a life of riding our snowmobiles on land, some resourceful Finns strapped a parachute to theirs and flew right off a mountainside. The Stunt Freaks Team, a group of daring Norsemen, and Tupla, a Finnish chocolate bar manufacturer, teamed up for the stunt. It looks like fun…but we’ll probably stick to the ground for now.

  • Watch Robert Downey Jr. Deliver a Real Bionic Arm To A Special 7-Year-Old Kid In Need

    University of Central Florida student Albert Manero does something amazing. Through his organization Limbitless he builds and donates low-cost, 3D-printed bonic limbs to kids around the world. Recently he teamed up with Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr., to present 7-year-old Alex Pring with another bionic arm. This one, however, was different. Now instead of having a bionic arm, Pring has his own Iron Man arm.

  • Tour The World’s Largest Cave In This Amazing Drone Video

    Located in Vietnam’s Phong Nha-Kẻ Bàng National Park, Hang Son Doong has been recognized as the world’s largest cave since 2009. The cave was originally uncovered in 1991, but it wasn’t until a 2009 expedition that it was found to be over 3.1 miles long, 660 feet high, and 490 feet wide, garnering its “world’s largest” designation. Beginning in 2013, guided tours allowed tourists in the cave for the first time, but at a cost of $3000, many of us will never experience the site in person. Photographer Ryan Deboodt has come to our rescue by capturing the the cave in this incredible HD video. He used a Canon 6D and 16-35mm lens on the ground and sent a DJI Phantom 2 and GoPro HERO4 Black high above to capture breathtaking aerial footage. Two dolines, which act as skylights, offered the GoPro the unique vista. Ryan’s cave explorations don’t end with Hang Son Doong. You can check out more of his adventures at Ryan Deboodt Photography.

  • LeBron James and His High School Teammates Shot Around in Their Old Gym [Video]

    Most people will never know the feeling of returning to play at a gym that has since been named after them. That’s exactly what Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James got to experience this past summer when he went back to his high school gym. James returned to The LeBron James Arena at St. Vincent-St. Mary’s in Akron, Ohio, to put up some shots with a few of his old friends, Romeo Travis and Dru Joyce III. Travis and Joyce III were teammates with James in high school, and their saga as they make their way up through the AAU league can be seen in the movie More Than a Game.

  • This Exotic Rope Jumping Video Is Full Of Beautiful Nope

    What is your first thought when you visit a beautiful, exotic locale such as Greece’s Zakynthos Island? “Boy, I wonder what it would be like to tie a rope around me and jump off this cliff?” If so, you’re insane. But you’re also not alone. Extreme Dream Jump will show you Zakynthos from a whole new perspective with their insane rope and BASE jumps from heights of 200 meters. Of course, if your balls aren’t the size of basketballs you might be better off just watching this video and staying firmly on the ground.

  • Amazing Hyperlapse Tour Of Austria

    We are huge fans of hyperlapse videos, but oftentimes the overly serious or just downright bad background music is distracting and confusingly unrelated to the subject. For “A Taste of Austria,” Austrian production team Film Spektakel did something so obvious yet so refreshing–using atmosphere-appropriate sound effects that transport you to the Austrian countryside and, in some cases, even add a bit of comic relief. The impressive video, comprised of over 600 time-lapse clips, is the result of two years of filming, with over 500 terabytes of footage captured in that time. Be sure to watch it fullscreen and with the sound turned up for the full effect.

  • Adam Sandler And Bob Barker Reunited And It Was Hilarious [Video]

    I have to admit, when I first started watching this video, I wasn’t expecting much. It seemed like an awkward, forced exchange between two people who have little interest in being there, sort of like award presenters or my divorced parents at my fifth grade spelling bee. But once Bob Barker and Adam Sandler embraced their Happy Gilmore characters, things got awesome. Much better than award shows or my fifth grade spelling bee.

  • Wes Anderson’s X-Men Would Be Incredible [Video]

    Warm color palette. Retro soundtrack. Solid color wardrobe. Symmetrical shots. All the things you need for a perfect X-Men movie. No, wait, that’s not right. That would be a Wes Anderson movie. X-Men movies need to be dark and loud with lots of explosions and fight scenes, right? Well we’ve had plenty of those kinds of X-Men movies and for the most part, they just don’t cut it. If this fan-made parody trailer is any indication, Wes Anderson’s version of the X-Men wouldn’t be antirely terrible. Hell, it definitely can’t be worse than X-Men: The Last Stand.

  • Bringing Creativity Back To Skating [Video]

    Skateboard ramps are cool and they can serve a variety of functions: bike ramp, rollerskate ramp, um….freerunning ramp? Huh, maybe ramps aren’t so multi-faceted. But what if they could double as boats and trains? “Impossible,” you say? Well then you haven’t met the Zenga Bros. The Vancouver-based filmmakers recently teamed with Booooooom and Flexfit to create “Skate Heads.” The video aims to bring back creativity and excitement to a sport that has become stale. No lie, as soon as I watched the video I wanted to head out to the skatepark but then I remembered that my “skating” days were spent button-mashing to Street Sk8er on Playstation. Oh well, it’s snowing out anyway.
