  • Even Japanese Tire Commercials Are Crazy [Video]

    What’s the best way to advertise tires? Did someone say with a frightening commercial? Of course not. No one would ever say that. Unless they’re Japanese, apparently. This may be the only commercial you ever see with a warning beforehand. That is, if you’ve got the balls (or ovaries) to watch it.

  • Pistons Dancing Usher and Fan Show Up on Kimmel

    There’s a huge viral video going around of an epic dance-off between an adorable kid and a very rhythmically-gifted usher at a recent Detroit Pistons game. This got Jimmy wondering why he doesn’t have the same type of usher fan off on his show. He did just that. Good to see these two getting the spotlight the deserve.

  • The Robb Report Billionaire Gift Guide

    According to Robb Report, the hottest holiday gift items are, well, very very pricey. The high-end advertorial and luxury magazine has listed some insanely expensive items in their 2013 gift guide, including a $62M treehouse and $83M flying yacht. You can even have your own “backyard stadium” or private submarine, though we’re guessing these stocking stuffers weren’t available on Cyber Monday. Check out some of the other bizarre items that only lots and lots of money can buy

  • Lifehack App Helps You Learn To Do Anything in 100 Days

    When designer Karen X Cheng wanted to learn how to dance, she decided to record herself each step of the way so as to learn from her mistakes. Her 100 day learning experience went viral, giving her the idea to share her method through an app. “Give It 100″ challenges users to learn to do whatever they want in 100 days while recording 10-second videos of their progress along the way and sharing them with the world.

  • Ron Burgundy Interviewed Peyton Manning On SportsCenter Today

    Ron Burgundy is on a cross country tear, reading the news and interviewing every opportunity he gets. Shameless plugging aside, Burgundy is doing one heck of a job, showing face without so much as plugging Anchorman 2, but I guess when your mustache has the impact his does, there’s no plugging necessary. In an interview today, Ron and Peyton discuss Eli’s mustache attempt and Thunder, the Broncos Mascot. Riveting stuff here, guys.

  • The 80 Most Powerful Photos of 2013

    2013 has been a year of incredible highs and lows. Barack Obama got sworn into his second term as President of the United States, there were devastating weather phenomena in the states and abroad, tragedy struck the Boston Marathon, but the city remaind strong and the Red Sox brought home the World Series, there was political unrest and protests all over the globe and so much more. Super Cut Compilation of the most powerful photos of 2013 One theme that holds true through all these events is there were photographers on hand to capture the emotion as it unfolded, no matter how chaotic. More photos were taken in 2013 than at any other point in history so we did our best to weed through them all to pull together this list of the 80 Most Powerful Photos of 2013.

  • A Christmas Story Reenacted On NY Subway [Video]

    Improv Everywhere saved the best for last with this final installment of this season’s “Movies in Real Life” series. This time they had three kids get on the subway and perfectly reenact the “triple dog dare” scene form “A Christmas Story.” Hopefully the kid playing Flick had a tongue prosthetic on when he licked that subway pole or he’s getting Hepatitis for Christmas this year.

  • What Batman Does On His Days Off [25 GIFs]

    Being a superhero takes a lot out of you and sometimes even Batman needs a day off. What does he when not keeping Gotham City safe from such ne’er-do-wells as Two-Face, Joker, or Penguin? Let animator Sarah J show you. She has a series of “Ordinary Batman Adventures” animated GIFs that show everyone’s favorite orphaned crime fighter in his off-time. See the rest of the Batman animations and more of her great work on her Tumblr.

  • 22 Athletes Who Will Play Their Entire Career With One Team + Cal Ripken Jr. Autograph Giveaway

    In todays world of sports, it seems like athletes follow the big pay day, as well they should. A career path that could be diminished by an ankle tear could be worth potential millions of dollars should be looked after like a life insurance policy. With the talent pool in professional sports at an all time high, the competition is fierce and unforgiving, so when a player spends his entire career with one team, it’s all the more profound. One of the most renown and well-respected players in MLB history, Cal Ripken Jr., played his whole career with the Baltimore Orioles and this week we are giving away a signed photo from baseball’s Iron Man as part of our 12 Days of Giveaways courtesy of Brigandi’s in New York City. Enter above and then see twenty-two athletes who’ve spent a decade or more with one team and will probably finish their career in that same city. Derek Jeter The most notable of the bunch and most likely to face retirement in the near future. After coming off an injury ridden season that limited Derek to playing only 17 games, The Captain was almost plagued with picking up the $9.5 M tab on his more »

  • Get Your Favorite Memes Printed In 3D From Shapeways

    3D printing is all the rage for tech-savvy shoppers this holiday season and Shapeways has positioned themselves as one of the biggest in the industry. If you’re not familiar with Shapeways, the way they work is designers upload their creation, choose the material, and then Shapeways prints and ships the final product. Designers can then set up their own shops where regular Joes who don’t know OBJ from VRML2 (they’re a thing, I checked) can order Sad Keanus and Grumpy Cats and Doges. Here’s a sampling of some of the different meme characters available from Shapeways creators. Prices vary based on size and material, but much like the personalized figures from Shapify.me that we recently featured, they aren’t cheap. Check out the meme figures and all the other cool stuff people come up with at Shapeways.

  • Amazing HD Time-Lapse Video From International Space Station

    YouTube user David Peterson put together this incredible high-def time-lapse video using photos taken from the International Space Station made available by NASA.

  • 10 Athletes Who Blew Our Minds in 2013

    It’s clear that—in sports—there’s a need to point out the best individual players despite the overwhelming message that a team’s collective effort trumps everything (points to Boston Red Sox and the Seattle Seahawks) But, with the Most Valuable Player Awards being among the most coveted pieces of recognition in athletics, RSVLTS is here to count down the Top 10 Most Valuable Athletes of 2013. And, while it may not compete with the opinion of the Associated Press, it still is a part of the Yearbook13 event—where there is a chronicling of all the most notable, memorable, and otherwise monumental aspects of the fleeting year.

  • The 100 Most Brilliant Ads of 2013

  • Set Your Phaser To Fun: Captain Picard Sings “Let It Snow” [Video]

    Video editor James Covenant edited together tons of clips from Star Trek: The Next Generation to create this video of Captain Picard and his crew singing a parody of “Make It So” to the tune of the classic “Let It Snow.” All your favorite characters get in on the fun, including Geordi, Riker, Data, and Dr. Crusher. Unfortunately, the insufferable Wesley is also there (“Shut up, Wesley”). Get yourself a cup of tea, Earl Grey, hot, set your phaser to fun, and enjoy this new holiday classic. Make it so.

  • New Meme Alert: Beyonce At A Concert [29 Photos]

    Yet again, Beyonce was photographed making a funny pose while performing. The last time this happened her publicist tried to remove any trace of the photos, making them more of a sensation than they would have originally been. This time, Reddit’s Photoshop wizards at /r/photoshopbattles got right to work, putting the singer in all sorts of fun scenarios. The first picture is the original, with the ‘shop’s following. As always, subtlety equals hilarity with the picture of the mouse on stage being my favorite of the bunch. Now let’s see Beyonce’s personal Gestapo try to rid the Internet of these works of art!

  • Two Thousand Mice Dropped On Guam By Parachute — To Kill Snakes

    What do you do when your Pacific island territory is overrun with snakes that feed on rare exotic birds? Well, if you’re the US Government, you would order 2000 dead mice dropped by parachute onto the island. The mice are laced with Tylenol, which is extremely toxic to the 2 million brown tree snakes that have been terrorizing Guam, killing wildlife and causing property damage. With a density of 13,000 per square mile in some areas, any plan to get rid of these snakes is worth trying.

  • Epic Rap Battles of History: Michael Jordan vs. Muhammad Ali [Video]

    The new Epic Rap Battle of History has been released, this time starring Comedy Central’s Key and Peele as Michael Jordan and Muhammad Ali. It’s a little darker than some past rap battles, with mentions of Parkinson’s disease and slain fathers, so be warned. With that being said, it was also way more entertaining than some of the more recent battles. Maybe this video will get some momentum going for the rest of the season. Also, don’t forget to vote for the winner. I’m going with Muhammad Ali for calling out Jordan’s Hitler mustache.

  • This Six Minute Trailer for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Will Envoke the Adventurist in You

    Ben Stiller stars and directs in this movie that’s already getting a huge amount of buzz. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is the story of a day dreaming paper pusher who works at LIFE Magazine, who zones out on adventures in his head. The last trailer gave the impression that the heart of the story took place in Mitty’s head, but this lengthier trailer tells a more detailed story of Walter’s Journey to find a lost photo from Sean Penn’s character, a journey-man photographer all in the hopes of winning the heart of Kristen Wiig’s heart.

  • New York City Subway Map Gets a Mario Bros Redesign

    Robert Bacon, a chicago actor and comedian and I guess 8 pixel designer, gave the NYC subway map a unique remodel, using elements from Super Mario Bros to completely re-work the underground rail map. “I really enjoy making pixel art and find it extremely calming,” Bacon told Daily Intelligencer of the effort, which took him about two months. “I really like sitting down, turning on some music, and making pixel art.” A fun take on the most miserable commuter method in NYC. Show this to someone riding the rails during rush hour and don’t be surprised if you get a fireball to the crotch. [h/t] NYMag

  • Russian Artist Uses Makeup To Create Optical Illusions [16 Photos]

    Russian photographer Alexander Khokhlov uses makeup on his models to create incredible optical illusions that make them appear two-dimensional. It’s hard to believe that these are photos of real people and not flat paintings. Khokhlov should get a job doing face painting at Six Flags so I can get turned into a Lichtenstein rather than the Peter Criss-style Catman I often settle for.

  • GoPro Adventure Series: Moab Towers & Magic Backpacks

    In the sixth video of the HERO3+ Adventure Series Hayley Ashburn and Marshall Miller ascend and leap from Ancient Art in the Fishers Towers. The video highlights the ups and downs of base jumping, the discipline and rush of the jump after a bone chilling climb. Hayley and Marshall recall their first jump, the anxiousness they felt and the addiction after.

  • Painting Morgan Freeman On An iPad Air [Video]

    Artist Kyle Lambert shows that you can use an iPad for much more than just playing Candy Crush on the subway and watching pornography in public with this video of his “finger painting” of Morgan Freeman. He spent over 200 hours on this photo-realistic work of art using only his iPad and Procreate, a $5.99 app that has nothing to do with making babies. This video will probably serve as the greatest advertisement for the app that the developers could wish for. Now excuse me while I go back to adding crude weiners on famous pictures using MS Paint. We’ve all got our niche.

  • Movie Posters As Neon Signs [23 GIFs]

    Animator and illustrator Mr Whaite used his artistic talents to create these amazing animated GIFs of neon signs for classic movies. Now someone needs to turn these into actual neon signs. I would totally buy the “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure” one if it existed.

  • 10 Sports Stories That Shocked the World In 2013

    Given the high-profile nature of professional athletes, there will be breaking stories that leave the entirety of the sports world stunned—headlines that are the chronicling of a fallen star, unexpected retirements, harrowing allegations, or unthinkable tragedy. In a more solemn part of the Yearbook13 event, RSVLTS has chronicled the Top 10 Sports Stories that shook the world of athletics to its core during the past year.

  • Volcanic Eruptions as Seen from Space [16 Photos]

    When viewing conditions are favorable, astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS) can take unusual and striking images of the Earth. Just last month the ISS provided a view of an eruption plume emanating from Kliuchevskoi, one of the many active volcanoes on the Kamchatka Peninsula. The nadir views—looking straight down—acquired by most satellites tend to flatten the landscape and reduce our sense of three-dimensional topography. In contrast, this photo was taken from the ISS with an oblique viewing angle that gives a strong sense of three dimensions, which are also accentuated by the shadows cast by the volcanic peaks. The result is a view similar to what you might see from a low-altitude airplane. The image was taken when the ISS was located over a ground position more than 1,500 kilometers (900 miles) to the southwest. This stunning photo inspired us to find a few more like it.

  • Paint War In Berlin [10 Photos]

  • The Cost Of The 12 Days Of Christmas [Infographic]

    Since 1984, PNC Bank has been calculating the “Christmas Price Index” by adding up the cost of every item in the “12 Days of Christmas” song. In that time, the menagerie’s price tag has increased 116%. Just about everything has either kept its value or increased from last year’s numbers except for the partridge in a pear tree. At $199, it’s $5 cheaper than last year. Still, buying everything in the song will run you over $27,000. The cost of true love…
