  • Real Life Pacman Looks Real Fun [Video]

    We’ve all wanted to take part in a life-action Pacman game at some point in our lives, but without a “top-down” view, it just seems impossible. The geniuses at Rooster Teeth figured out how to give their real Pacmen a view from above and threw them in a maze complete with power pellets, real fruit, and bat-wielding “ghosts.” It looks like lots of fun, especially for the ghosts.

  • The Elton John/System Of A Down Mashup You Never Knew You Wanted To Hear [Video]

    Much like peanut butter and chocolate, Elton John’s “Crocodile Rock” and System of a Down’s “Chop Suey” are two things you would never think to combine. But just like those two jackasses in that old Reese’s commercial, you’ll be happy with the results. Neil Cicierega did a great job combining the two, especially when Serj Tankian sings “angels deserve to die” over Elton John’s “na na nas.” And be sure to check out more twisted humor from Neil Cicierega.

  • This Wes Anderson Mixtape Is An Audio/Visual Delight [Video]

    We’re big fans of Johnny Wilson, aka Eclectic Method, and his unique music and video remixes. We loved his “Brief History of Sampling” a few months ago and his most recent work, “The Wes Anderson Mixtape,” is just as awesome. He sums up the video with this great description: Great directors create their own genre and Wes Anderson movies are a genre unto themselves. His films are played out in linear motion, his actors moving like costumed dolls in a vast toy house. It’s as much theatre as film. Here are Anderson’s movies remixed like a cross section of a doll’s house – the themes and styles blended and mashed together. Check out more Eclectic Method on Tumblr.

  • Incredible Before And After Of “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” Visual Effects [Video]

    Last week we posted before and after photos of recent CGI-heavy movies. But just because all those movies were from the last few years, doesn’t mean that green screens are a strictly contemporary phenomena. “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” was released 26 years ago and much of the movie features veteran actor Bob Hoskins, who played Smee in “Hook” and Mario Mario in the awful “Super Mario Bros.” film, interacting with cartoon characters. For the scenes that take place in Toon Town, Hoskins is the only non-animated entity. Watch this incredible before and after video of Hoskins acting alone in front of a blue screen and see all the hard work that went in to making a childhood favorite.

  • Robinson Cano Surprises Booing Yankees Fans [Video]

    Robinson Cano returns to New York today, but no longer as a Yankee. He left the Yanks for Seattle and a $240 million, 10-year contract. Although most folks would go where the money is, that doesn’t mean fans still aren’t angry. To help them blow off steam, Jimmy Fallon presented a giant portrait of the second baseman for fans to boo in public. They didn’t know the real Robinson Cano was right behind the picture. How quickly their attitudes change…

  • Epic Nike Commercial Featuring Ronaldo, Rooney, and The Hulk [Video]

    This epic new commercial from Nike Football (the soccer kind) for their #RiskEverything campaign features kids transforming into soccer superstars, like Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney, with every kick of the ball. The commercial is so spectacular, the Incredible Hulk even makes an appearance! If this commercial doesn’t get you amped up for the World Cup, nothing will. Hey, it’s only one time every four years that you have to watch soccer. Plus, it’s a great excuse to get drunk with foreigners!

  • Newsman Brian Williams “Sings” Gin And Juice [Video]

    Jimmy Fallon previously revealed the hidden hip-hop messages in Brian Williams’ news broadcasts with his video for “Rapper’s Delight.” Apparently that wasn’t the only classic hip-hop song Brian Williams has been dropping lyrics from throughout his news delivery. Watch Williams and the rest of the NBC news crew perform “Gin and Juice” in this new video from the Tonight Show. Now that I think about it, I often get the urge to drink some Seagram’s gin while watching the news. I always figured I was just a raging alcoholic, but now I know it’s some sort of subliminal message. Now excuse me while I go in search of some bubonic chronic. I suddenly got an urge…

  • These Insane Speed Riding Stunts Will Wake You Up [Video]

    For those who don’t know, speed flying is an air sport where you fly a small fabric wing down a steep slope. Strong winds can keep you flying the whole way down. Strap some skis to your feet, and now you’re speed riding. Valentin Delluc is a master of the sport, as illustrated by this video. He even grinds the chairlift cable! Check out more of of Valentin Delluc’s insanity on Facebook.

  • DJI Phantom Flies Insanely Close To Fireworks [Video]

    So you just spend about $1000 on a DJI Phantom and now you need something cool to video. What’s your first thought? Fly into a fireworks show, of course! Or at least that’s Vimeo user Gasper C thought to do. Luckily everything went fine and he captured some awesome footage. Now you won’t have to risk your Phantom and you can be satisfied flying it around your yard at a safe altitude without wondering what fireworks look like up close.

  • Lose Your Lunch On Sweden’s Helix Roller Coaster [Video]

    Liseberg Amusement Park, located in Gothenburg, Sweden, has released the first POV video from its newest roller coaster, Helix. The 4,445 foot track features 6 inversions, 4 airtime hills, and a top speed of 62 mph. The ride lasts an impressive 130 seconds, which may seem short, but in the world of roller coasters is a pretty long time. The Cannon, another popular roller coaster at Liseberg, has a ride duration of just 50 seconds. The $30 million ride will open to the public at the end of the month. Those of us so far very away will just have to enjoy this video for now.

  • NHL’s Good Friday Massacre Turns 30 [Video]

    On Easter weekend 1984, the Quebec Nordiques and Montreal Canadiens faced off in the second round of the NHL playoffs. Fights between the regional rivals continuously broke out for the first two periods before leading to a bench-clearing brawl at the end of the second period. When the teams returned for the third period, another fight broke out before play could even begin. Players who should have been ejected from the previous fight were still on the ice because referee Bruce Hood was late in announcing penalties. His handling, or rather mishandling, of the situation led to his retirement after the playoffs that year. In total, 10 players were ejected and 252 penalty minutes were incurred. Worst of all for the Nordiques, the Canadiens, who were down before the brawls, ended up scoring all 5 of their goals in the third period, winning 5-3.

  • Seth Rogen And Zac Efron Interview For Workaholics [Video]

    In the best ever ad that’s not really an ad at all, Zac Efron and Seth Rogen interview to be the new cubicle-mate of Workaholics’ Adam, Ders, and Blake at TelAmeriCorp. The hilarious interview, filled with filthy language and blatant homoeroticism, is actually funnier than most of the current season of the show. And you don’t even realize that the segment is to advertise for the upcoming movie “Neighbors” until the very end. This is how advertising should be done.

  • Super Mario Theme Played On Wine Glasses And A Frying Pan [Video]

    YouTube user Dan Newbie makes incredible music by striking wine glasses filled with varying amounts of water to obtain different tones. His latest video, featuring 48 wine glasses and a frying pan for percussion, finds him performing the theme from the original Super Mario Bros. Nintendo game. It’s not a simple song and it leads to some impressive moments with multitracking of up to 4 wine glass parts. Check out more of Dan Newbie’s videos on YouTube.

  • 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.

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.

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

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.
