Selectism just posted a bunch of videos of noted film-maker Werner Herzog reading children’s classics. It’s not actually Herzog, but the person doing these does a fairly good impression, and I imagine it wouldn’t be difficult to convince the real Bavarian director to do it for real.
Our friends over at Urlesque have posted a series of videos of epic Wheel Of Fortune fails, with the disclaimer that they know from first experience that ‘losing on Wheel of Fortune is never easy. Sure, some may claim the game show is a glorified, glittery version of Hangman, but there are, indeed, specific strategies […]
In response to Constantin Film AG recently making YouTube remove many of the parody clips of Hitler’s freak out scene in the film Downfall, user Plankhead has posted another video in which Hitler freaks out about Hitler videos getting removed from YouTube. The clip represents yet another little skirmish between old media and new.
Damn, well made viral videos are fun. Especially when they’ve haven’t gone ‘bang’ yet. This effort places the mighty Iron Man into a rather intimate scene with the late Patrick Swayze as the two of them fulfill their obvious rust … whoops … lust for each other and get all Dirty Dancin’ on us.
Liquid Mountaineering is a new sport involving, wait for it, walking on water. Or to be more precise: running on water. The ‘sport’ is being developed from scratch after the founders discovered by accident that, with the right water repellent equipment, you could run across bodies of water, like a stone skimming the water.
Leave it to clever Japanese pranksters to come up with something this outrageous and ridiculous. But it’s all done in a very funny and off-handed (off clothing?) way. We love it. How could you not?
This very clever stop-motion animation is by Rhet and Link and features 222 t-shirts. They actually changed t shirts more than 100 times in order to make this video. Now that’s what we call dedication.
Remember how, as a kid, teachers created an atmosphere of FUN as the best way to learn? It was an inspired place for imagination and support. Hmmm, well it seems adults get the short end of the stick, playing only a game of ‘serious’ and ‘responsibility’. So when I came across this video, it was […]
So it’s an oldie, but damn, it’s still a goodie. And in these tough times, well, it’s kinda nice to laugh at someone else’s obsessions. If only for 6 minutes and 49 seconds.
Spending a huge amount of money is easy when you’re without a mortgage, kids or a full time job. To ease my financial guilt, I recently put together this list of fifty fun, bizarre and slightly mad ways in which I managed to blow $50K over the years — buying myself nothing but amazing memories […]
A follow-up to New York photographer Martynka Wawrzyniak ‘Kids’ show, Ketchup exposed another dimension of her subjects tied together through a spraying of the thickly tomato sauce — at Wawrzyniak herself. It’s quite a sight! This exclusive video made for the Feature Shoot site captures the behind the scenes action from her experimental performance which […]
Ok, so this isn’t arty, musical or cultural in any sense of the word. It isn’t a cool new band or a talented young artist. It isn’t even a cutting expose on the vagaries of New York living. Nope. It’s a cheap laugh, and it’s just about the funniest damn thing you’ll see all week. […]
This weird, slightly-creepy video of a chubby kid lip-syncing the Cuppycake Song circulated the web like any other cute oddity until it was discovered that the boy in the video, Sam Castle, has a life-threatening kidney disorder, one effect of which is his excess weight and his stunted growth. His Internet celebrity helped call attention to his plight, and he has since appeared on the Tyra Banks Show, The Doctors, and alongside the original singer of the Cuppycake Song, Amy Castle (no relation).
