Poor Man's Roomba

Funny video of a dog imitating a roomba. Oh dear. Who's gonna clean up the mess?

SNL's Casey Wilson Reads Internet Comments

Casey Wilson, underused castmemebr on Saturday Night Live, browses the Internet in search of comments about her. And it's not pretty. Oh, and she does totally NOT look like Patton Oswalt swallowed a couch.

Fluid Sculpture

This awesome and somehow crazy sculpture was created by a guy named Charlie Bucket as a prototype for a bigger sculpture for the Maker Faire later this month. And what do you people do in your free time? Me, I like to eat cereal.

Consequence 3 - Bitter Sweet Symphony

The lyrics to The Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony” spelled out using graffiti pieces and tags on trains and other places.

Benefit song from the season finale of 30 Rock. Sheryl Crow, Elvis Costello, Mary J. Blige, Adam Levine, Rachael Yamagata, Rhett Miller, Moby, Norah Jones, Sarah Bareilles, Cindy Lauper and others.

Coffee Cup Drummer

Cool video of a guy using different cofee cups as a drum set. Works surprisingly well.

Look Around You - Remix - Music Video

Very awesome remix of the Look Around You theme, and songs used in this fantastic TV show. Someone (who's not me) should give the creator a prize. Very, very cool/awesome/fantastic, etc.

Creative Skateboarder William Spencer

Here's a pretty neat video of William Spencer doing some rad (is this word still in use? No?) stunts and tricks on his skateboard. Well worth the watch, even if you're not a skateboarding enthusiast, as this guy doesn't do your usual tricks. Very cool!
Skateboarding, like parcour, is one of those sports has to be urgently combined with dominoes and beer pong. Now there's a video I would pay top dollar to see.

You Are Super Cool

This a classic video. Which is my usual introduction for posting old stuff. And I'm sure that you can find this somewhere here on this site. Nevertheless, this is a rather awesome, super cool and fantastic commercial for LA animal services. It's just so super cool!

I Love Delis - parody song

Funny parody rap song about the love for delis. Yes, sandwiches are the new thing to love, apparently.

Youtube Info:
Asher Roth may love college, but we're nostalgic about deli sandwiches. YouSuck and The Landline bring you this parody music video.
Featuring and written by Travis Helwig, Kevin Mead, and Darren Miller.

Duck Tales gone horribly wrong

See what happens when you introduce just a little realism to a family friendly Disney cartoon show. It all goes very, very wrong. With hilarious consequences. LOL!

Bahama Fridays

I wonder if this is real or not. It looks just a little too much like a parody of "The Office". I think it's fake, and probably sponsored by the Bahama Tourism Board or something like that. Still, pretty awesome video.

Reach - sweet animation about a small robot

Very cool animation/short film about a iny robot is given the gift of life with only one limitation, the length of his power cable. When a curious bird appears at the workshop window, the robot feels a lust to live outside of his reach that may be his demise.

If you don't like this, you have no heart.

About the director:

Make The Girl Dance "Baby Baby Baby" ( official video )

The only reason I am posting this is because it almost features naked ladies singing and dancing and stuff. Oh, nice song, too. I guess. I have no speakers at my desk.

‘Bambi’ Ricky Gervais Overdub

This awesome video takes footage from the Disney movie Bambi and overdubs it with a scene from Extras, the Ricky Gervais BBC/HBO comedy, featuring Patrick Stewart.

My Favorite Movie (Star Trek vs. Star Wars)

Funny video from the peeps over at CollegeHumor showing the differences between Star Trek and Star Wars. LOL? LOL!

Puke In My Mouth - Jizz In My Pants parody

Oh this is one awesome/funny/very well done music video! A very funny parody of the Lonely Island Jizz In My Pants track, sung from the perspective of girls clubbing. Very, very awesome. Oh, and they're sexy. And funny.

Youtube says: - this is a ladies' response to "Jizz In My Pants" by Lonely Island. we (the pantless knights) got approached by a gal who had an idea for a fake engagement ring to ward off douchebags. we thought the whole thing was hilarious and told her we wanted to make a music video for it. a few months later, here it is and we hope you like it! also, peep our cameos FTW!!! big ups to the girls puking in their mouths!

Exercise Ball Champion

This is, by far, the best way to use exercise balls. How come this isn't already an olympic discipline? How come?

Cool music video by two British girls singing about love on the internet. Also featuring a ukulele. Hence, tew awesome!

Youtube says:
A song about feeling amorous towards someone on a social networking site.

Slushee Commercial

Hahaha, funny commercial for slushee. You know, the super-sweet stuff that makes your head hurt. But in a good way. Don't expect this commercial to air before 10pm. LOL!

Youtbe says:
Best slushee commercial ever

I Love Bayside - Saved By The Bell tribute rap

Awesome music video from parody rapper Seanie Mic! He raps about the good old TV show Saved by the Bell. Have I mentioned this is awesome? AWESOME!

Rusty Flies High

WTF? Crazy commercial for a local deli. Sometimes you don't need a big budget campaign to get mocked on the internet.

Youtube description says:
Rusty shows us the extraordinary effects a healthy, organic meal from Jason's Deli has on the human body. Results may vary from customer to customer.

Office Dominoes

Cool video of thousands of dominoes falling in an office. How long did it take them to build this whole thing? Looks pretty awesome!

Vimeo description says:
This video was created for Imagine RIT, an annual festival at Rochester Institute of Technology focused on creativity and innovation of its students, faculty, and staff. It was created by myself and two coworkers.

** The next Imagine RIT festival is May 1, 2010. Hope to see you there! **

The cardboard man at the beginning who kicks the first domino is RIT President Bill Destler, who started the annual festival at RIT in 2008.

Inspiration for the video came from some of my favorite videos including the Sony Bravia balls, paint, and rabbits commercials; the Honda cog commercial; the Guinness 'Tipping Point' commercial; and all of FlippyCat's domino videos on YouTube.

Special thanks to everyone in RIT University Publications who helped with setup and cleanup.

BaconLube Taste Test

If you think that a bacon falvoured lubricant is a bad idea... well, you might just be right. But these guys seem to enjoy it.

Great Golf GTI Racing Game

The other day, always looking for new distractions at work, I discovered the GTI Project website. A cool racing game was just what I was looking for to fill the time I have between my lunch sandwich and dessert muffin.

The GTI Project website has a great feel to it. I was presented with a screen that introduced me to the GTI project stating that in 1974, a group of young engineers began customising a Volkswagen Golf to build a radical new performance racer. Access to their work room has remained restricted until this day. Feeling like Michael Knight being introduced to KITT for the very first time, I was ready for the hands-on test of the game. But first I had to open the closed doors to the work room.

If you want to open the closed doors to GTI project work room, you need to get past the ENTRY VERBOTEN sign. How convenient that a lab coat is just hanging nearby with a valid ID card. Grab it, and you're in! If, by any chance, you are planning a career as a spy (think of the adventure, beautiful women and, of course, fast cars!), this might just be the starting point that you're looking for.

In the work room you only have to grab the controller to start the game. And this is where I attracted the attention of my fellow co-workers in the office because I was greeted with a bass thumping, fast-paced tune that almost blew my speakers! However, now I had no choice but to prove my ultimate driving skills in the game with my colleagues watching over my shoulder and giving me "good advice". As they usually do.

The game presents itself in the form of a Carrera or Scalextric type game, and the controls are just as easy: just press space to accelerate! Ha, how easy is that? I could already see myself as the king of the office, beating every single player on the GTi racing game leaderboard. With all my confidence and a smirky smile I started the game, expecting much cheering and backslapping from my colleagues. There was no cheering. What I got to hear instead sounded more like "oh dear", "watch out", or "better luck next time".

Oh well. Apparently I do not have the virtual skills of a Lewis Hamilton. "See if you can do any better than me!" I told my colleagues, and, of course, they could. Productivity went down that day as the whole office was playing.

However, the great thing about this game is that even if I am not the greatest player in the world to make it onto the leaderboard, I still have the chance to win a GTI for 3 months! And when I win, I will be the one making fun of my colleagues. “Oh you came with the bus, did you? Mhm, was it very crowded? People sneezing in your face, you say? What a shame!" While I drive off with my GTI into the sunset.

Little Mac - Wii Punch-Out Trailer

For someone like me who has wasted his youth on video games in the basement, the new installment of Punch-Out on the Wii looks promising. What I like about this is the fact that they made this commercial out to be like a short documentary. Bonus: Famous "someone stole my bike" sequence included.
Youtube says:
For 15 years Little Mac has regretted losing the World Circuit Title to King Hippo. Now he's throwing a welcome-home-party in the ring, and he's serving up some punch.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off Recut as a Thriller

Cool recut/remix/reimagination of the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Redone into a supernatural psycho thriller trailer ... What you can't see can kill you. Very cool!

White Magic - Music video by POGO

Awesome music video for the song 'White Magic', made by Pogo using sounds recorded from the Disney film 'The Sword In The Stone'. Tres awesome!

Tom Hanks does the 'Big' rap - Friday Night with Jonathan Ross

Tom Hanks recites the “Shimmy Shimmy Coco Pop” chant from Big on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross. Thank God for that, otherwise this day would have been a total failure.

Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus trailer

Awesome trailer for the upcoming Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus film. If this doesn't have summer blockbuster written all over, then I don't know. It’s a shark fighting an octopus for an hour and a half - can it get any better than that? No. Also: Debbie Gibson and Lorenzo Lamas.

Mentos Trek

Funny commercial spoof with footage from the TOS Star Trek episode "Arena". With Kirk and some space alien. And Mentos. Oh yes!

Funny man Andy Samberg has another promo for the MTV Movie Awards out, this time his "For Your Consideration" tape is in the Best Female Performance category, Andy Samberg as Ms.Elouise. Just look over your shoulder and she'll always be by your side.
