Can you imagine a world filled with The Muppet Show’s crazed drummer, Animal? Imagine no further. In a video by tea brand, Lipton, we see New York City brimming with the grumbling, aggressive, red Muppet. From garbage collectors, to waiters, to cab drivers, everyone’s a screaming, stressful citizen. Well, maybe except for Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy.
The superpowers of physics have done it again! We’ve seen guys do the loop the loop many times before, on BMXs, on skateboards, heck even Hot Wheels cars can do it. But can the human body do it, relying on leg power alone? Apparently, the answer is yes. Stuntman Damien Walters proved that this is […]
Nope, that’s not a miniaturized evil fortress she’s holding. It’s actually a Chinese musical instrument called a ‘Sheng’. And though it was invented thousands of years ago – and we only learned of its existence a few minutes ago – it can dish out beats straight from the 80s, specifically the ‘Super Mario Brothers’ theme. […]
Like any form of art, taxidermy has its fair share of disturbingly wonderful pieces. One of the most disturbing, and most wonderful, pieces of taxidermy we’ve seen was made right in Sydney – multiple times over. Risto Todoroski makes bagpipes from deceased goats. That’s right, bagpipes from deceased goats. Hmm, wonder what he’d do with […]
Forty-eight years! We waited forty-eight years for Bob Dylan’s Like a Rolling Stone to release a music video! Credit belongs to (apart from Mr. Dylan himself) Vania Heymann, a 27-year-old Israeli ‘viral video whiz’ who’s created commercials for the likes of Pepsi and American Express. So why will this become viral? It’s because the music […]
Ed Ruscha’s work in both paintings and film are influenced by the vernacular of Southern California. In 1966, he published Every Building on the Sunset Strip, a book about capturing a continuous shot of a two and half mile section of the strip. In 1973, he likewise photographed the entire length of Hollywood Blvd. Here […]
Taking ‘words out of their normal context’, the Sydney Museum of Words is holding their first exhibition this month and you’re invited.

Box explores the synthesis of real and digital space through projection-mapping on moving surfaces. The short film documents a live performance, captured entirely on camera. The team behind it said it believes the technology ‘has tremendous potential to radically transform theatrical presentations and define new genres of expression’.

Being a self-confessed “word nerd,” I’ve got a fascination with typography and the different ways you can make a word look on paper. And in Ben Barrett-Forrest’s animated short, he delves into a (very) condensed version on the history of typography, tracing all the way back to Johannes Gutenberg and his invention of the first […]
Do you want telekinesis with your coffee? Some of the customers in the video have received more than what they asked for. The marketing team of Carrie, an upcoming 2013 supernatural horror film, has released a video on YouTube titled ‘Telekinetic Coffee Shop Surprise’ to promote the film. The video captures the reactions of unsuspecting […]
Did you know: When Miranda Kerr is not strutting her stuff on the Victoria’s Secret catwalk, she spends her day hoarding pink detergent and speaking Japanese? While the video does not contain any lingerie, it’s good to know that if at any point in the future you share an intimate moment with Miranda Kerr, both of you can converse in the language of samurais and ninjas.
Yes, the ’90s was so last, last decade, but to some, it is still the greatest era of all time. The world was rad and we revolved around Lisa Frank, stick-on earrings, Beverly Hills 90210, Trapper Keepers, and Tamagotchis. Desperate to experience the ’90s again? Just hit The ’90s Button, a David Hasselhoff-inspired website that will […]
As a species, our attention spans are supposedly shrinking, and most mainstream films pander to this assumption. Images, action, strands of story and scene changes are ceaselessly thrown at us in an effort to keep our attention, and distract from the lack of meaningful plot and characters worth caring about. Passable movies keep you awake […]
