Cats with thumbs

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Video on Thursday 3 October 2013

Cats love milk, and two years ago, milk brand Cravendale decided to give our furry friends a hand — er, we mean thumbs — so they can get to the good stuff themselves instead of having to wait around for their milk. Naturally, this spun an equally hilarious series online of Tim Curry-narrated clips that […]

Funny video of Muse fake-lip syncing on Italian TV

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in Video on Monday 30 September 2013

This Muse video cracked me up. Apparently the band went on the Quelli Che Il Calcio to perform Uprising from their latest album. They were told to only lip-sync the song which Matt didn’t like one bit. So instead of giving in, the band played a ridiculous prank that no one even noticed was happening. The […]

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in Video on Monday 30 September 2013

This video is a collection of all the dramatic reactions to the Red Wedding massacre scene on Game of Thrones. The guy with the camera already knew the outcome of the episode, but his unsuspecting subjects were viewing it for the first time. I just can’t help but wonder if some of these people were […]

By Annie Churdar in Video on Friday 27 September 2013

In this famous Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, he screams. Then again. And then again. And all his grunting noises sounds exactly the same. This funny video remix is a highlight reel of every Arnold Schwarzenegger yell from every movie he’s ever made. It’s eight minutes of pure “AARGGGHH”.

Ed Ruscha, Woody, and the World’s Hottest Pepper

Gem Contributor

By Gem in Video on Thursday 19 September 2013

Ed Ruscha is one of my favorite photographers. His Twentysix Gasoline Stations book is probably the first photo book that’s also an art object in itself. This video of Ed and his dog showing his work gives us a glimpse into the mind behind the master.

Obama covers Daft Punk’s Get Lucky

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in Video on Monday 16 September 2013

Obama truly is the people’s president. And what better way to prove it then to cover the summer’s hottest throw-back hit? In this funky presidential address, Obama covers Get Lucky by Daft Punk. I just want to run this groovy video on repeat. It’s just too good. And I’m pretty sure it was all shot […]

Only in Japan: Marathon session of public apologies

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Video on Monday 16 September 2013

Riding on their ‘You’re Not You When You’re Hungry’ theme and inspired by the Japanese’s seeming fixation on making public apologies at press conferences for every little thing (scandal-ridden politicians do it, shame-faced celebrities do it), Snickers recently worked with I&S BBDO to hold a mock press conference of sorts where anyone could show up […]

Disappointed Hercules

Callum Russell Reader Find

By Callum Russell in Video on Thursday 29 August 2013

And now for some fine, fine acting. The actor was supposed to read his line of dialogue, while the stage directions instructed he should sound disappointed. Instead, we got this gem. Ah, YouTube, you are addictive.

First there were goats that yelled like humans. Now there are the humans who yell like goats yelling like humans. What next? It’s not just our ears that hurt now. Our brains hurt too.

News report from 1981 about the Internet

Andy Martin Reader Find

By Andy Martin in Video on Monday 12 August 2013

Reading the news on a computer seemed pretty far-fetched back in 1981 but, as this TV new report shows, it was possible. The only snag was that it took hours, you had to live in San Francisco and you didn’t get to see the picture, ads or comics. ‘It won’t be much competition to the […]

Comedy Blap episodes by Claudia O’Doherty

Andy Martin Reader Find

By Andy Martin in Video on Saturday 10 August 2013

Describing herself as ‘One of Australia’s most serious and busiest actors (also millennial illusionist)’ Claudia O’Doherty is, in fact, a very funny comedian. She has recently made some short Comedy Blap episodes for Channel 4 in the UK. In them she tries to raise money for her families’ travel agency, but I don’t think it’s […]

In what must be the greatest use of Auto-Tune in a while, here’s Daft Punk’s disco-inspired single Get Lucky, featuring Pharell Williams — oops, we mean a cat — on guest vox. What can we say? The Internet was made for breakout hits like this.

Quandulums JukeBox: a mini-animation by Steve Piro

William Vale Reader Find

By William Vale in Video on Wednesday 7 August 2013

This is what happens when you take either too many drugs, or possibly not enough. Piro’s collection of ‘out there’ wacky mini animated vignettes is clearly the markings of a creative madman. You can’t help but laugh at the absurdity and rawness of each video. If AquaTeen and Monty Python had a kid, you might […]
