Taxidermists will find this video to be great fun and probably even cute, ebryone else will freak out a little and find it creepy. A video of a ncie fairground scene with dead squirrels. Oh well, the internet has stuff for everybody.
Black is this year’s...black, as Friendly Fires perform entirely in the dark for Sony Ericsson Pitch Black. Matt Edmondson takes us backstage with the band.
Due to copyright restrictions this video is not available in all countries. Good job, Sony Ericsson, you really have understood the concept of the internet.
Awesome animation about a man who lives alone in a small apartment. The little contact he had with other people has dropped to zero since the rabbit appeared. Every attempt to get the rabbit out of his apartment has failed and since he is not sure whether or not pets are allowed in the building, he does not let anybody enter his apartment.
Very cool animation by Egmont Mayer with a hint of WTF.

This is the most fantastic martial arts clip from an Indian movie I have ever seen. And it's also the only one. This video can only be described as crazy awesome. Better than anything you've seen today. 100% fact!
I saw this video sometime last wek and forgot to post it and because today is a bit slow on the video front, I see no reason why it shouldn't be here. Not that you care about what video I saw last week. Anyways, this is a funny video featuring US and UK comedians Will Arnett, Amy Poehler, Peter Serafinowicz and Sarah Alexander. And they're very (very very very) happy to see each other again. LOL.
I declare this the awesome video of the day. In this video we see where the samples of the Prodigy smash hit Smack My Bitch Up originated from - and we get it shown in a very cool way, by oldskool cut and paste. Watch to see what I mean, I'm not good with teh words today.

Brilliant music video by DJ Steve Porter! He mashed some of the most entertaining sports rants from recent years, sets them to a nice hip-hop beat and runs autotune on them - and you get a pretty cool and catchy song. Features Allen Iverson's "Practice" rant, Jim Mora's "Playoffs!?" and T.O.'s "That's my quarterback."
This video is, by all means, the most WTF thing I have seen this week. Well, it's only Tuesday. It deals with the phenomenon of "synesthesia" which is “a condition in which one type of stimulation evokes the sensation of another, as when the hearing of a sound produces the visualization of a color.” OK, now you know. Still, very WTF but awesome!
Here's act 1, part 1 of the Harry Potter musical. That's right, a musical about our favourite wizard boy. Pretty awesome and this must have taken a lot of time. It was done by a group of students from the University of Michigan.
Get ready for a musical adventure as Harry Potter and his pals go back to Hogwarts for another year of learning shenanigans! Only this year their wizarding world gets turned on its head when the Dark Lord, Voldemort, comes back from the dead to take his revenge on The Boy Who Lived. Filled with magical fun and original songs by Darren Criss and AJ Holmes, this is a Potter-spectacular that no fan should miss. So take a ride on Voldemort's flying machine and get ready to back to Hogwarts!
Music by Darren Criss & AJ Holmes
Script by Matt Lang, Nick Lang & Brian Holden
Official teaser trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender, the live action movie based on Avatar the Last Airbender (that Nickelodeon cartoon). This looks pretty good, I hope Shyamalan does it right this time, his last few movies kinda sucked.
Awesome short film celebrating six years of collaboration between Takashi Murakami and Louis Vuitton. A very colourful, bright animation full of good vibes. Yay!
Here's some sort of viral video for God knows what, probably underwear. But who cares. In any case, this is a video that will put a smile on every man's face: Lovely ladies in underwear (hence the title reference of bras) on rollercoasters. And why not.
Awesome promo trailer for Pacific, the new HBO 10-part mini-series from Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg. The Pacific tells the intertwined stories of three Marines during America's battle with the Japanese in the Pacific during World War II.

Funny freak out/meltdown of a teen whose mum has cancelled his World of Warcraft account. Now, of course not all WoW players are like this but I really hope this video is fake. Othwerwise.... that's it for humanity. We're all doomed. Still: awesome, crazy and full of OMG, WTF and LOL.
New fun time video from ImprovEverywhere.

Its a bird! Its a plane! No, he's Barack Obama and hes come to save the day! JibJab puts the rock in Barack with a new, over-the-top satire that debuted in front of the President himself this Friday at the Radio & Television Correspondents Dinner!
Daily Show funny man John Hodgman does his comedy routine at the Radio and Television Correspondents Dinner. I find him mildly amusing.
