This is the moment champion Aussie surfer Mick Fanning was attacked by a Great White shark on live TV
In a remarkable escape from the, erm, jaws of death, legendary Aussie surfer Mick Fanning has punched a Great White shark twice as it attacked him from behind during a final at the J-Bay Open in South Africa. Fanning, a three time World Champion, was waiting for his first wave of the final when he […]
He may have been the subject of a viral hoax overnight that claimed to have exposed him, but that hasn’t stopped the Banksy juggernaut from keeping on keeping on. He has just published new photos of a large piece in his home town of Bristol called the Girl With a Pierced Eardrum, which is his […]
Look closely, very closely: your eyes are probably fooling you. What you’re seeing is NOT a real human, but in fact Ed, a computer-generated ‘person’ that shows just how far computer graphics have come to mimicking actual humans. Amazing! What’s even more impressive is that is still a work in progress. As the creator, Australian […]
You’ve got to give it to Pharrell Williams. Not content with releasing the biggest hit of 2013 and most viral music video of 2014 (444 million views and counting), and supplying the vocals and melody to the next best song of 2014, he’s now teamed up with legendary artist, Takashi Murakami, for his latest music video, It Girl.
David Fincher’s 1999 masterpiece Fight Club may not have been a box office smash first time around, but it’s had an enduring second life as a cult favourite of discerning film buffs. Adapted from the 1996 novel by Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club was raw, vicious and darkly compelling, showcasing a ridiculously toned Brad Pitt and a wonderfully dis-engaged Edward Norton.
The whole literal video movement was doing the rounds a while back, and this clever hack on Take On Me has been well viewed already, but we’ve just found it and, damn, if it isn’t the best thing we’ve seen in a while! The original video from 1986 was an MTV staple, perhaps the most popular and memorable video of that era.
In another example of the remarkable memory retention of animals, this video shows Valentin Gruener, the initial carer of this awesome rescued lion, visit his former charge and get the type of reception we would never have imagined possible. When the lion is released from his cage, he embraces and hugs Gruener like a long […]
You gotta give it to YouTube user, ZaidAliT, who decided to shatter the tension around exam week on his local campus by challenging random, unsuspecting students to a pillow fight. And what pillow fights they are! Well, some of them anyway. Our personal favourite is the student who dropped the pillow, refused to fight, and […]
This awesome pantone beer packaging matches the colour of the brew with the colour of the can or bottle
We are in awe of this clever beer packaging design by Spanish designer Txaber, who studied Graphic Design at CVNP in Bilbao. Each can and bottle is pantone matched with the colour of the amber brew inside. Sadly, however, it’s only a concept design at this stage. As Txaber told Mashable: ‘currently there are no […]
Alaskan TV reporter dramatically quits on air after disclosing she’s the founder of the AK Cannabis Club
Oh, live TV, you’ve gotta love the pitfalls. This is a breaking story that is already running amok on social media: following a story on the Alaska Cannabis Club, which ‘connects medical marijuana cardholders in need to medical marijuana cardholders with green’, KTVA reporter Charlo Greene (yes, that IS her real name) made an unscripted announcement that she was in fact the club’s owner and then promptly resigned on air (‘F— it, I quit’) in order to dedicate her energy to fight for the right to legalize marijuana in Alaska.
Let’s face it, Morgan Freeman has one of the BEST voices in the world: it’s deep, resonant, distinguished, and could probably narrate anything and make it tingle with gravitas. But even his unique set of tonsils aren’t immune from the wickedly mischevious effects of helium, as this fun video shows.
Ok, so we’ve all probably done this trick at home. Take a Menthos – any Menthos – and drop that sucker into a fizzing bottle of Diet Coke. And the result? Boom! Awesome bubbly mayhem, and lots of it. Luckily, our friends at Epic Meal Empire had a bigger collective imagination than the rest of us and went large scale for their Menthos experiment: dressing one of their hapless team in a Menthos suit (yes, they DO exist) and dunking the poor fella into a small pool of Diet Coke.
At Lost At E Minor, we’re old enough to be fans of the original hit by German band Nena. Well, at least some of us are (no names, no packdrills). But this version of the 1983 anti-nuclear protest song is even catchier. [Watch the awesome video here]
Incredible dash cam footage shows the destruction of a tornado as a Russian man tries to flee his house
Don’t mess with Mother Nature! That’s the pretty clear message this fierce tornado seems to be sending this hapless Russian man who pulled out of his garage only to be caught smack bang in the middle of its angry winds. As he tries to turn back to his garage, it’s destroyed in front of his […]
Coffee: can’t function without it, can’t function with it. Well, for some people anyway. But how does it actually affect your brain? Don’t know? Neither did we, until we stumbled upon this fascinating short animation which demystifies the impact that your daily cup (or three) has on your psyche.
