  • Amazing Mid-air Rescue Of Unconscious Skydiver [Video]

    Seconds after leaping out of a plane, skydiver James Lee was struck on the back of the head by another skydiver and was knocked unconscious. Two colleagues noticed something was wrong with Lee and maneuvered over to him. Once they got Lee in a safe position, they deployed his parachute and he landed safely. He came to with no memory of the near catastrophe. Would you skydive again if you were James Lee?

  • 45th Anniversary Of Last Live Beatles Performance [Video]

    On January 30, 1969, The Beatles gave a performance on the rooftop of the Apple Records building at 3 Savile Row in London. It would be their last live performance. The band was joined by “fifth Beatle” and keyboard genius Billy Preston and video of the show would be included in their “Let It Be” film. Police put an abrupt end to the performance after 42 minutes due to the noise and commotion the band was causing in midday London. Watch the historic show below and witness how tight they were, especially considering they hadn’t played a concert since San Francisco’s Candlestick Park in 1966.

  • Jimmy Kimmel Asks People For Their Reaction To State Of The Union Address Before It Aired [Video]

    Nobody wants to look like a moron on camera, so when you are interviewed about your reaction to the State of the Union Address, you are probably going to lie your ass off about it as best as you can. But before you start weaving your web of lies, just make sure you are aware of when the address was scheduled to air. Sadly, these folks were a bit ignorant of that fact and end up looking even dumber than if they had just admitted to not watching or caring about it. ‘Merica!

  • Anna Kendrick: Behind the Scenes of the Mega Huge Game Day Ad Newcastle Almost Made [Video]

    For the past week, Newcastle has been releasing videos about the Super Bowl ad they would have made if they had the advertising budget to make a Super Bowl ad. They don’t, so the videos have been descriptions of how awesome the ad would have been, storyboards of the unmade ad, and even a focus group reaction to the ad that never was. Now Newcastle has released a behind the scenes video with the ad’s star Anna Kendrick, who complains about there not being an ad in which to star and not even being allowed to say the words “Super Bowl.” She also pretends not to be hot, winning us over even more. Kudos to Newcastle for using the Internet to make a viral campaign that will pay off for them way more than blowing all their cash on 30 seconds during the big game. Check out all the ads at IfWeMadeIt.com.

  • Overdose On 80s Nostalgia With Delta’s New Safety Video

Too bad you can’t, unless you get lucky and those creepy future people from that terrible movie “Millennium” get a hold of your flight.

  • Young Rival’s Mind Blowing Magic Eye Music Video

    Remember those magic eye books that you’d spend all your money on at the book fair? You’d stare at those damn things for hours, suffering teary eyes and headaches, just to see a tessellation of some palm trees or something else equally unimpressive. Relive those days with this much more exciting magic eye music video (the first of its kind) from Young Rival for their song “Black Is Good.” It’s a good song, too, which helps when you’re staring intently at your computer screen for 3 and a half minutes. Read all about how they created the video with help from an XBox Kinect at Young Rival.

  • Incredible Live Loop One-Man Performance Of TLC’s No Scrubs [Video]

    Elijah Aaron is so talented, it’s infuriating. Watch as he effortlessly performs the TLC classic “No Scrubs” recording each part and looping them live. I still haven’t even mastered patting my head while rubbing my belly. I hate Elijah Aaron’s talent, but, dammit, I couldn’t help but smile throughout this whole video. Check out more of his music on his website, including a really fun cover of Gershwin’s “I Got Rhythym,” and become even more envious of his skills.

    Get ready to see the most beautiful watch you’ve ever set your eyes on. The Midnight Planetarium from Van Cleef & Arpels features six of the planets orbiting the sun in real time. Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn are represented by precious stones around a rose gold sun. The case is also 18kt rose gold and the strap is made from alligator leather.

  • More NFL Bad Lip Reading [Video]

    BadLipReading takes on the NFL again, just in time for the Super Bowl. There’s some real good ones this time around, especially the nonsense spouted by 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh. Hopefully he’ll be just as entertaining next Sunday. Pro tip: make sure you have closed captioning on so you don’t miss any of the hilarity.

  • Awesome Crony Capitalism Toy Commercial For The Lil Libertarian [Video]

    I can’t be sure if these toys are real or not, although their is a website that says they’ll be available soon, but there is no denying how awesome this commercial is. It’s just like the toy/cartoon commercials of our youth but with an obvious political message. Actually, if you think about it, it’s sort of like glorifying the villains in Captain Planet. I don’t know about you, but after watching this I’m ready to stifle entrepreneurship and get konnected with the Kronies!

  • “Her” Trailer Plus Philip Seymour Hoffman [Video]

    Richard Trammell is quickly becoming quite the viral video celebrity thanks to his expert editing that changes the way we look at classic films. For his latest video, he’s taken on the sappy trailer for Spike Jonze’s “Her” and replaced Scarlett Johansson’s voice with that of Philip Seymour Hoffman. The result is funny and incredibly creepy at times. It’s also a movie I’d want to see a lot more than “Her.”

  • A Guide To American Football [Video]

    You bought an officially licensed jersey to wear. You looked up instructions on making one of those football stadiums built entirely of cold cuts and condiments. You have two fridges filled with both kinds of beer (light and full flavor(?)). You have a football to fumble around with nervously while watching the game. You are ready for the Super Bowl. Wait…you don’t know anything about how the game is played? Check out this video and brush up on the basics so that when you’re friends come over, you’ll have more to talk to them about than the commercials. With GoDaddy opting for a more mature image without scantily clad women, you might as well pay attention to the game.

  • Robin Thicke’s Dad Is A Way Better Singer [Video]

    Sure, Robin Thicke may be all the rage with the kids these days, but for us older folks, his dad, Alan, is the only Thicke we love. As host of the Saturday morning animal quiz show, “Animal Crack-Ups,” he educated while entertaining us. On “Growing Pains,” we were all jealous of Mike, Carol, and Ben for having a cool dad like Jason. But, as evidenced by this clip from the 1988 Crystal Light National Aerobic Championship (so 80s), his greatest talent was his singing. You’re good, Robin Thicke, but you’ll never be Alan Thicke “Sweaty and Hot” good.

  • Skydiving Into Mile High Stadium [Video]

    See Denver’s Mile High Stadium like never before from this helmet cam footage from a member of the Denver Broncos Thunderstorm parachute team.

  • Preview Chorus Grant’s New Album With “O Everyone” [Video]

    Denmark’s Kristian Finne Kristensen, aka Chorus Grant, first appeared with 2012′s “And The Villa Nova.” Now he’s back with a new album, “Space,” due out February 24 which can be pre-ordered from TAMBOURHINOCEROS. As a preview of the record, Chorus Grant released a video for the opening track “O Everyone.” The chill, electro-indie tune is reminiscent of Postal Service and if it’s any indication of how the rest of “Space” will sound, this will be an incredible album. To hold you over until “Space” hits, you can stream “And the Villa Nova” in its entirety on Spotify.

  • The “Workaholics” Rockin’ Ode To Best Friends [Video]

    Comedy Central’s hilarious “Workaholics” returns for a fourth season tomorrow night and the cast appeared on Conan to get the word out. During the interview, a fight erupts between Adam and Blake. Is this the end of our favorite trio? Of course not, as they are reunited through the magic of music with a song that showcases the angelic voice of Ders. Tomorrow night can’t come fast enough.

  • Celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr With “King Holiday” From 1986 [Video]

    Martin Luther King, Jr Day was first celebrated as a national holiday on January 20, 1986. To mark the historic occasion, some of the biggest names in 80s music, including El DeBarge, Whitney Houston, Run-DMC, New Edition, Kurtis Blow, and Melle Mel got together and recorded “King Holiday.” All proceeds from the single were donated to the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change. From USA For Africa to Band Aid to Artists United Against Apartheid, the 80s was a time of big names coming together for great causes and King Dream Chorus created another one of those classics. It would be pretty neat to see who would get together and do something like this today.

  • Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. Brighten Your Day With “Run” [Video]

    The infectious, highly danceable, indie-pop from Detroit’s Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. is on display more than ever in their new video for “Run.” The track, taken from the band’s second album released last fall, “The Speed of Things,” will get you moving on the dance floor despite sad lyrics that are in stark contrast to the upbeat music and melody. Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. is currently on tour throughout the US in support of “The Speed of Things.” Be sure to check out their fun live performance when they come to your city.

  • Classic Paintings Come Alive In BEAUTY [Video]

Animated GIFs taken from the video can also be found on the BEAUTY website, along with a list of the paintings used.

  • If Domestic Beer Commercials Were Honest [Video]

    I’ve got no problem with cheap domestic beer. I often choose to drink Schaefer, PBR, Schlitz, and others of their ilk, but this honest beer commercial from Random at Best is still pretty damn funny and accurate. I could go on and on about how much I enjoy the taste of Genesee Cream Ale (and I really do) but what it mostly comes down to is this: it costs $7 for a 12 pack and it gets me drunk. And now I’ve gone and made myself thirsty. Anyone want to grab a beer? Maybe something domestic?

  • The Official Batkid Movie Is Here [Video]

    Back in November, we reported on San Francisco’s transformation into Gotham City for 5-year-old Miles, aka Batkid, via the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Watch as Batkid rescues Lou Seal, the San Francisco Giants’ mascot, from the evil clutches of the Penguin and restores peace to Gotham City while restoring your faith in humanity.

If you’re already in Colorado, go get some of those lollipops and report back.

  • PEP Channels 50s Pop In “Stephen” Video

    Karys Rhea, best known as drummer for Brooklyn’s Starlight Girls, is releasing an EP for her side project PEP on February 11. Titled “My Baby and Me,” the record is four tracks of vintage pop reminiscent of early girl groups like the Ronettes and Shangri-La’s. PEP has released a video for “Stephen” and it really illustrates how much Rhea understands the genre. She has stated that the idea came to her when she heard “Runaround Sue” playing in a store then downloaded over 100 albums from the period. PEP’s appreciation of that golden era of pop is evident and “Stephen” is a fun song with a great video. Check it out then pre-order the EP at PEP.

  • Stop Everything And Watch The “Devil Baby Attack” Video That Is Burning Up The Web

    There has been a lot of bellyaching lately about the proliferation of viral videos as movie marketing, but as long as the videos keep entertaining us, we see no reason to complain. The newest video making its way around the Internet is an ad for “Devil’s Due” which opens this weekend. In the video, an animatronic possessed “devil baby” riding in a remote controlled stroller is let loose around New York City. People look inside the stroller, “devil baby” pops out and scares them, they scream, and we laugh. Simple yet effective.

  • Everything You Ask Google Sounds A Lot Stupider When You Actually Ask Google. [Video]

    Ever imagine what it would be like if Google was a man with the unfortunate duty of answering every idiotic question we’d come up with? College Humor did and it’s hilarious. It’s easy typing in any random query that pops into your head, but if you had to actually talk to Mr. Google face to face, would you have the balls to ask for “college girls nude” or “butthole”?

  • Raw Footage From the Launch Of SpaceShipTwo [Video]

    Virgin Galactic is one step closer to its goal of bringing tourists (albeit extremely wealthy ones) to space after a successful test flight of the SpaceShipTwo (SS2) on January 10. It was the third rocket-powered supersonic flight for the subspace-craft and Virgiin Galactic officials said all their objectives were met. This is great news for the company, which plans on beginning commercial service later this year. Many celebrities have already reserved spots for when the service takes off, including Stephen Hawking, Katy Perry, Ashton Kutcher, and Tom Hanks. If you’d like join them as one of the first space tourists, sign up at Virgin Galactic. Wait, you don’t have $250,000? Better cut back on your daily Starbucks.

Whether it’s adding in people and natural scenery or removing imperfections and distractions, the seamless work of these artists is incredible.

  • Honest Action: Kevin’s Home Alone Body Count [Video]

    Sure, we all enjoy the antics of that lovable scamp Kevin McAllister in Home Alone and its sequel, but what if the movies were more true to life? Would the actions of the precocious sadist be as entertaining if the hapless duo of Marv and Harry sustained damage that accurately reflected their real-life injuries? Screen Junkies went through the two movies and chronicled each injury and calculated how many Marvs and Harrys would be killed if the films were more reality-based. The results are chilling, especially for poor Harry. Also, it’s really funny seeing all the slapstick scenes in one video. Schadenfreude!
