Comedian Matt Harbert twittered me asking if I think his video (a comedy song) is funny. I think it is - what do you think? Here's Matt as H. Bibbety, rapper, hip-hop star and fast food fan, with his new hit single "I'm Luvin' You (Take You To McDonald's)".

London based adifferentending is a unique interactive film that follows one young man's life or death choices.
‘Choose a different ending’ is a new and exciting interactive game you don’t just watch, you live. You control what happens next and watch the story unfold. How will your story end?'
Posted on YouTube, the film operates as a series of interlinked video shorts, where the viewer is given a series of choices at the end of each episode, which in turn dictate the direction the story will take.

Ouch! What starts off as a playful fight between two kids ends in, well, not a tragedy, but surely a sore lip and a life lesson learned. Still gives me the LOLs because of the stupidity of those kids. Seriously, what were they thinking?

Awesome cgi animation by Steve Twist. This is his major project for his BA (Hons) Computer Visualisation and Animation undergraduate degree at Bournemouth University (NCCA). 8 months of work from concept to completion. CGI produced in Houdini 9.5, composited in Shake. And, not to forget, a top notch animation! Eat this, Michael Bay!
Homeland security creates a special taskforce to combat the upcoming threat of Bruno quoting. Funny sktech from the people at Landline TV. Featuring Bradford Jordan, Craig Rowin, Megan Neuringer, John Frusciante, Sharon Spell, Saj Pothiawala, Yoni Lotan, Logan Smith, Travis Helwig, Darren Miller, Alan Starzinski, and Jared Neumark. Written by Landline. Shot by Noah Yuan-Vogel.
A music video of the different kind. A catchy tune and an elaborate use of webcams make this cool video stand out, also I don't have a clue what the song is about. But I guess it doesn't matter, the clever use and editing of webcam footage makes more than up for it.
The video title pretty much says it all. A video of a guy (from Japan nonetheless, which makes this wacky video more entertaining) standing on his head and attempting to drink a glass of milk through a straw. The word that comes to mind is (apart from the usual WTF): Epic Fail! Oh, and LOL.

Pretty cute video of a pug pushing a stroller with two pug dolls. Yes, maternal instincts hit everyone sooner or later and this little pug got them just now. Looks kinds cute, and might end up as a commercial for life insurance or a sugary soda.
For their camera's 50th anniversary Olympus tells a story of/with the Pen camera in a 3-minute stop motion animation: 60,000 pictures, 9600 developed prints, more than 1800 pictures reshot. Oh, and no post-production. Very cool animation!
This guy captures a fly, build a little paper plane and uses the fly as the motor. If I had any patience I might try this myself. Get ready to fly the fly. Get it?, haha. Quite mazing footage when he takes the fly powered plane outside for its maiden voyage. So awesome!
Very cool video of a HD projection onto an ancient castle. That is all the video title gives away, and there's not much more that you need to know in order to enjoy this. The graphics are pretty amazing and look very pretty bordering on the trippy. Cool stuff!
Funny spoof trailer of 2012, the new Roland Emmerich disaster movie vehicle but this awesome video right here is so much better. I'd actually go and watch the movie if this was the actual trailer! Very cool, very awesome, very FTW!
Funny and clever animation of our favourite TV star. I really don'T like Jeremy Clarkson, so I have no problem laughing manicaly when watching this video.
As the youtube description says:
a short story with a happy ending
And by bat I don't mean the animal, of course I am talking about a baseball bat. So here's a video of a gouy doing some pretty cool tricks with his bat. Kinda like the video of this other guy doing cool tricks with his bat. But different.
The MD’s back from his Direct Holidays Tropical Escape, but something’s not quite right!
Times are hard, profits are down. But ...... the MD is back with renewed vigour and he’s about to put things right with some unconventional “tropical sun inspired” measures. They’ll have the board and the workers getting hot under the collar and spitting feathers (and coffee). He’s loved his Tropical Escape. He’s got “the direct effect” and he’s determined to spread the holiday feeling. Conga on!
Here's a short clip of Madonna's tribute to Michael Jackson during her Sticky And Sweet Tour performance at the London O2 Arena. A dancer dressed as Michael doing some cool moves. Yeah.
So 4th of July is more than over, but this video will still be funny. But even funnier on a national holiday that celebrates the US of A. So save this one for next year's 4th of July celebrations and see the musical tribute by the Muppets introduced by Sam the eagle.
Nobody ever pays any attention to the safety instructions on a plane. This is why Air New Zealand put bodypaint on their otherwise very naked crew members to make the video more interesting. All eyes on safety it is!
I'm pretty sure that I posted this video before, but it's rising on other sites and I might as well post it again because it's so awesome. The guy in this video plays the famous Cantina song from Star Wars on a Chapman stick. And it sounds quite nice.
