  • This Zombie Parkour Video Is An Awesome Video Game Ad

    We enjoy parkour videos as much as anyone, but the one thing that they always seem to lack is motivation. Why are all these European dudes bouncing all over from rooftop to rooftop? Well now we know that the answer is simple. Zombies. Watching this freerunner escape zombies in Cambridge, we can’t help but think that it would make for an awesome video game. And you know what? It soon will be. The video is an ad for Dying Light, a new survival game due out PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One on January 27. The game emphasizes avoiding the zombie hordes, so hopefully we’ll have plenty of action-packed running away to look forward to.

  • The Beer Sled: A New Era In Beer Delivery [Video]

    Drinking beer is great. It’s cold. It tastes good. It gets you drunk. Delivering beer is awful. It’s heavy. It’s not yours to drink. But these brilliant men in Colombia came up with the ultimate solution. Construct a cerveza sled and glide straight to your destination. Well, as long as your destination is at the bottom of a hill.

  • Siberian Parody Of “Shake It Off” [Video]

    Zloi Mambet is from a Siberian rural community in Russia and he is proud of his roots. In an effort to show off the people and places he loves so much, he’s been creating parody videos of pop songs. In his latest video, the Siberian Weird Al tackles Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.” It’s weird and fun and pretty awesome to see people and places most of us would never even think of seeing.

  • This Brobot Is A Beer Pong Champ [Video]

    I’m all for technological progress, but this time science has gone too far. Empire Robotics has developed Versaball, an incredible robotics system that can manipulate objects of various shapes and sizes thanks to its “hand” made up of a green ball filled with a sandlike material. That’s great and all, but then the egghead inventors decided to show off Versaball at CES by showcasing its beer pong prowess. Now it’s only a matter of time before the upper echelons of fraternities are dominated by these brobots. Have you seen The Matrix? That’s going to be the dystopian future of hazing!

  • Watch An 11-Year-Old Girl Outwit Gaston To Beat Him In An Arm-Wrestling Contest [Video]

    Disney World’s Gaston, so hot right now. The video of Gaston winning a push up contest with one arm behind his back was one of the first major viral videos of the new year and now, just days later he is back dominating the web. This time an 11-year-old decided to challenge Gaston to an arm wrestling contest, but none of us knew she had this tactic up her sleeve! If you need a refresher on the Gaston push up contest you can watch that here too:

  • Relaxed Dude Roasts Marshmallows Over A Volcano [Video]

    Protip: Always be sure to pack marshmallows and Corona when making the 400 meter deep descent towards a 2000F lava pit else miss out on badass photo-op. Luckily, Simon Turner of New Zealand remembered when traveling in Vanuatu recently. Oh, and a spare tent peg is perfect for roasting your marshmallows from a (somewhat) safe distance.

  • Check Out The Northern Lights In 4K From The Comfort Of Your Warm Home [Video]

    Have you always dreamed of seeing the Northern Lights but find the reality of traveling far away to look at the sky in freezing temperatures just too off-putting? Then sit back and relax you lazy loser, and watch this amazing 4K Ultra High Def video instead. Ronn and Marketa Murray captured the brilliant phenomenon near Fairbanks, Alaska a few days ago so you wouldn’t have to. But just in case this video makes you want to see the Northern Lights in person even more, check out the tours from the “Aurora Chasers” available at Ronn Murray’s Photography & Tours.

  • “Gold Bond Liqui-Shaq” Will Give You Nightmares [Video]

    As if those Shaquille O’Neal Gold Bond commercials weren’t bizarre enough on their own, someone had to go and liquify Shaq while remixing the commercials, creating the ultimate nightmare fuel. At least now we no longer have to wonder what Tim & Eric would do if given control of the brand.

  • We Want This Hard Drive Clock [Video]

    Years ago, a hard drive failure was pretty much a catastrophic event. They were expensive to replace and if you didn’t have the forethought to back up all of your data using your Jaz tape drive, everything was lost forever. But now hard drives are cheap and seamless cloud storage means nothing is ever truly gone. And when a hard drive fails, it’s tossed away only to end up in a Chinese landfill where a kid gets cancer picking for precious metals. But it doesn’t have to be that way. This video demonstrates a clock fitted with LED lights for a neat POV effect. The lights are programmed with all diferent display and effect options. Best of all, the creator has shared the instructions to make your own at Instructables and is taking orders at Indiegogo for those of us who are technologically inept. Order one today starting at just $59 for expected delivery in March.

  • Recycle Cans With A Backyard Mini Metal Foundry [Video]

    For about $20, you can stop giving away all your precious empty cans to those recycling company fat cats and instead melt them down in your backyard to make all kinds of cool junk. Unfortunately, we live in the big city and our lease specifically states “no mini metal foundries” (probably) so we’ll just have to watch this how-to video and dream. But what’s stopping a country bumpkin such as yourself from making one?

  • Behind the Magic: The Visual Effects of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” [Video]

    Industrial Light & Magic, the company set up by George Lucas almost 40 years ago to create the visual effects for Star Wars, is still one of the best effects houses in the industry. As movies rely more and more on computer-generated effects for explosive action sequences, its up to these effects experts to translate the director’s vision onto the footage that is often little more than a couple people in front of a green screen. For Captain America: The Winter Soldier, ILM contributed 900 effects shots, mostly in the third act. Take a look at how a green screen became the helicarrier’s underwater hanger in this highlight reel and gain a newfound appreciation for these incredible artists.

  • Leave It To An Astronaut To Make The Greatest Space Time-Lapse Video Of All Time

    European Space Agency astronaut and geophysicist Alexander Gerst already put every other Twitter account to shame when he posted daily pictures of the Earth from the International Space Station @Astro_Alex. But that wasn’t enough for him. Although he returned to terra firma in November, he’s still dominating the Internet. Check out this time-lapse made by combining 12,500 images Gerst took during his six-month stay aboard the ISS. For best results, be sure to watch it fullscreen and in 4k.

  • This Marvel Vs DC Movie Needs To Be Made [Video]

    It used to be so easy. Movies based on comic book characters were awful and it was no problem ignoring them. But then Iron Man and Nolan’s Batman trilogy came along and showed us everything comic book movies could be. Now we’ve got about 637 movies based on Marvel and DC properties coming out in the next few years. They should just save us time and cmbine all the characters into one giant amalgamated movie. But in a world where Marvel’s characters are owned by three different studios, a movie like that has zero chance of existing. At least we have this awesome trailer.

  • This Jacksonville Theme Song Is So Bad It’s…It’s Just So Bad [Video]

    Jacksonville has a lot going for it. It’s the largest city in the US by area…there’s a zoo…the Jaguars play there. No, wait, Jacksonville isn’t that great. It’s enormous and it’s a pain in the ass to get around. But at least some of its more than 800,000 residents like it there. And now they’ve made a song about it. It seems like a Tim and Eric song, complete with random lyrics, public access-quality videography, and a sweet soprano sax solo three minutes in. But it isn’t. At least, we don’t think it is.

  • Rudolph Meets John McClane In Fly Hard [Video]

    You know, I never really noticed just how similar the old Rankin/Bass Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer is to Die Hard. After all, they both have…um…well…they’re both Christmas movies, I guess. But even with such a tenuous connection, this mash-up, using the sound from the Die Hard trailer and video from Rudolph, works perfectly. Or maybe we’ve just been hitting the egg nog too early this year.

  • We Want More Of This Pulp Fiction Underwater Remake [Video]

    Why would anyone make a shot for shot remake of the iconic “Say what again” scene from Pulp Fiction underwater? Because they can! And we’re glad someone did, because it’s pretty incredible. And the ethereal quality of Vincent’s hair floating around him is the most glorious image we’ve ever seen. Let’s just hope there’s more to come…

  • This Bad Girls Club Hopeful Got Booted And Reacted Appropriately [Video]

    What do you do if your car gets booted? Pay the proper fines and vow to be more responsible in the future, probably. Unless you’re at auditions for “Bad Girls Club,” a show where seven “bad girls” are locked in a mansion and left to kill each other with cattiness. Then you need to show how “bad” you are drive off like it’s no big deal. I think it’s safe to say that the lady who drove off in the booted BMW will be getting a call back from the producers.

  • Feuding C-Span Pundits Get A Phone Call From Mom [Video]

    Brad Woodhouse is the president of the progressive advocacy group Americans United for Change and the Democratic Super PAC American Bridge. Dallas Woodhouse is a Republican who heads the conservative Carolina Rising. They are also brothers. No, this isn’t the lame premise for a terribly boring sitcom, it’s real life and the subject of a documentary titled Woodhouse Divided. The brothers were recently on C-SPAN discussing bipartisanship when they got a surprise phone call…from Mom. The host swears the call wasn’t planned, but the soon-to-be viral video seems like great publicity for the documentary.

  • Jaguar Showcases Augmented Reality Windshields [Video]

    Jaguar Land Rover, the UK-based auto manufacturer owned by India’s Tata Motors, has developed an incredible new kind of windscreen or, as we call it in the President’s English, windshield. First of all, the 360 degree windshield eliminates any blind spots. The roof pillars that usually obscure the driver’s view are fitted with screens that show just what it looks like outside, offering the driver an uninterrupted view of their surroundings. Another bit of awesomeness is the “Follow Me” Ghost Car Navigation that displays a simulated car ahead of you so you can safely navigate without having to look down at your GPS. Hopefully further down the line Jaguar will offer some DLC that transforms the other cars on the road into Mario Kart characters.

  • This Severe Weather Time-Lapse Video Will Teach You To Fear Mother Nature

    Nicolaus Wegner is a Wyoming-based photagrpher who is available for all your portrait needs—from yearbook photos to wedding photos to saccharine pics of your kids that make your friends sick. But when he’s not working on portraits, he spends time capturing nature’s wrath in the form of storms that will make you crap your pants. “Stormscapes 2″ is a time-lapse of violent weather in Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Colorado photographed between May and September of this year. Watch the video below, then check out more from Nicolaus Wegner on Vimeo. Damn, nature, you scary… Stormscapes 2 from Nicolaus Wegner on Vimeo.

  • Amazing Time Lapse Of Northern Lights From Space [Video]

    In case you weren’t aware, NASA’s Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit keeps an incredible archive of time-lapse videos from space at The Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth. There’s a world map that you can click and find footage of it from the International Space Station. The only problem is that the videos aren’t streaming and can be fairly large downloads. Good thing Selmes Films produces excellent compilations of these NASA videos that we can watch on YouTube. Check out this video featuring the Northern Lights from space and then watch some other awesome videos of our planet form Selmes Films.

  • Switch Between 9 Different Angles In This Innovative Breakdancing Video From Nikon

    In order to showcase the D750 Digital SLR camera, Nikon captured South Korean breakdance crew Morning of Owl from nine different cameras simultaneously. The resulting video allows you to seamlessly switch between the multiple angles as you watch the dancers do their thing. And the video looks incredible. With the ability to simultaneously record uncompressed and compressed Full HD 1080 footage at 60/50/30/25/24p and the option to manually control ISO, shutter speed, and aperture while recording, the D750 is sure to top “prosumer” Christmas lists this year.

  • Build Your Own Hoverboard Using Leaf Blowers And Plywood

    This year has been tough for those of us who have been waiting for hoverboards since Back to the Future II. First Tony Hawk advertised one iin a video that turned out to be a hoax. Then someone actually invented a working hoverboard, but it’s big and complicated and can only hover over certain materials. 2015, the “future” in the film, is almost here and it looks like we’ll never have the simple Mattel hoverboards we’ve wanted since 1989. Or will we? Ryan Craven, aka Mr. Hoverboard, has created a hoverboard using materials you can pick up at Home Depot or Lowe’s. The device is basically a small hovercraft made with four leaf blowers, a shower curtain, plywood, tape, and staples. Craven estimates it costs between $250 and $500 to build your own. And best of all, he’s shared his plans at Mr. Hoverboard so you can easily build your own. Quit wasting your time waiting around for someone else to make your damn hoverboard. Watch the video of Mr. Hoverboard in action, go buy your materials, and start building. Then make us one, too. via CNET

  • Pew! Pew! The Navy Has Tested Their New Laser [Video]

    Earlier this year, we told about the US Navy preparing their first laser-equipped ship, the USS Ponce. Well good news (or terrible news if you’re our enemy): the laser is ready! After spending $40 million over the last seven years on development, the Navy has tested their laser weapon system, LaWS, in the PErsian Gulf. Check out this video and see the 30 kilowatt laser in action/ It’s actually made up of six lasers focused together in one Death Star-like beam. Although lasers can be disabled by inclement weather and are limited to line-of-sight targets, the new weapons will complement common shells and missiles. And at a cost of just 59 cents per shot fired, lasers are a much cheaper option over the million dollar missiles.

  • The Most Insane Ski Line Ever Is A Big Nope [Video]

    Red Bull has done the impossible: They’ve created a ski film even better than the 1991 classic Ski School. Days of My Youth was filmed over two years and features incredible shots that make you feel like you’re the one on the skis and not just some lazy bum watching other people do fun things while you sit on your couch with your laptop and an Utz Barrel of Cheese Balls. One such insane scene features Cody Townsend’s line of the year. A lesser man would kill himself navigating the same crevice. A much lesser man would spill his cheese balls and wet his pants.

  • Relive 2014, YouTube Style [Video]

    From “Get Happy” to the ALS ice bucket challenge to those real-life, functional Wolverine claws, YouTube has once again compiled all the most viral moments from the past year into one “star”-studded video. And now I have every stupid song from 2014 stuck in my head. Thanks a lot, YouTube.

  • Incredible Drone Footage Of Iceland [Video]

    The quality in this video is so good, it must have been made with professional equipment, for an absurd amount out of reach of any hobbyist, right? Nah. It was all done with a DJI Phantom 2 and GoPro Hero4 Silver. The video was shot in 30fps then slowed to 24fps in post to give it an ethereal quality. Also, the original 2.7k resolution was downsampled to 1080p, resulting in supersharp video. And as a testament to the incredible quality of the GoPro, all the settings were left on auto. For a detailed description of the project, be sure to check out the story at Fstoppers.

  • This Megadeth Medley Is Insane [Video]

    In 1983, Metallica fired original lead guitarist Dave Mustaine due to his drug and alcohol abuse and replaced him with Kirk Hammett. Metallica went on to super-stardom with Hammett, but Mustaine has done pretty well with his band Megadeth, too. Over the past 30 years, Megadeth has sold over 50 million albums and solidified their place as thrash metal gods along with Metallica, Anthrax, and Slayer. Over the years, Mustaine has continued alienating band members left and right, most recently losing a drummer and lead guitarist last month. But good news, Dave! This dude knows every Megadeth song. And he can play all 160 in chronological order as a bitching 20-minute medley.

  • Apollo Astronauts Had Filthy Mouths [Video]

    We think of the Apollo astronauts as these clean-cut, all-American men who lived and breathed apple pies and bald eagles. And they were. But they were also humans who got frustrated and showed that frustration by uttering the occasional profanity. Popular Science’s always informative and entertaining Amy Shira Teitel explains how NASA cleaned up the salty language of the astronauts when it came to transcripts of the mission. And how the original audio has survived. Watch the video below and for more information, check out the article at Popular Science.

  • Jimmy Fallon Plays Pictionary With Jerry Seinfeld, Martin Short, And Miranda Sings [Video]

    Jimmy Fallon continues his domination of late night TV by gathering up the best guests and having them do absurd things. Sure, we still have to hear the boring stories about the new project we don’t care about, but now those stories are shorter because Fallon has his guests engage in shenanigans such as this game of Pictionary with Martin Short, Jerry Seinfeld, and YouTube star Miranda Sings. Not only are the comedians all bad at drawing, but they are also terrible at guessing! And wait til you see the boobs on Martin Short’s Mrs. Claus…

  • The Worst Movember Mustache Removal Methods [Video]

    Movember is over, so unless you live with your mom (who you refer to as “mother”) and drive around the neighborhood in a white panel van, it’s probably time to shave that mustache. You could just shave it off with a razor, but there are so many other methods available! Why not use wax, electricity, a knife, or even fire? Because as this video illustrates, those methods are extremely dangerous while simultaneously ineffective. So watch this video, have a laugh, then shave that creepy thing off already.

  • Eerie Drone Footage Of City Abandoned Since Chernobyl Disaster [Video]

    On April 26, 1986, the world witnessed the worst nuclear accident in history when an explosion at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine killed 31 people and emitted radioactive particles over much of the Soviet Union and Europe. The effects of the disaster were most visible in the nearby city of Pripyat, where plant workers and their families made up much of the city’s population of 50,000. The entire city, which was about to open an amusement park, was evacuated and has remained a ghost town ever since. Earlier this year, freelance filmmaker Danny Cooke spent spent a week in Pripyat for a 60 Minutes segment. The footage, much of it shot with a drone, looks like something out of a Hollywood dystopian thriller, but the fact that it’s real is scarier than any movie could ever be. Watch the video below and check out the full segment about the Chernobyl disaster and what’s being done about it today at CBS.

  • Exclusive Footage From New Dr. Strange Movie [Video]

    Oh wait, it’s just the Marvel Universe float from the 1987 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Sorry. But it’s still pretty amazing in its own way, especially since we get to see Wolverine and Dr. Doom interact with the Avengers—something that won’t happen on film any time soon. And for some reason the whole sequence is backed with the score from Back to the Future. Oh yeah, Robocop makes an appearance to pull a lever. Hey, it might be corny, but it’s still way better than that pathetic KISS performance this year.

  • Hold Your Horses: The Budweiser Clydesdales Aren’t Going Anywhere [Video]

    Earlier this week there were numerous reports of Budweiser getting rid of the Clydesdale horses that have been synonymous with the brand since 1933, when the horses delivered the first case of post-Prohibition beer from the St. Louis factory. Those dastardly glue factory operators were twirling their mustaches in anticipation but Budweiser says whoa there, those horses aren’t going anywhere. In fact the Clydesdales play a role in this new campaign with Lyft that you can view below. And despite reports to the contrary, the horses will be around for the holidays and will appear at the Super Bowl.
