The Baia Ball (Donald Duck Remix)

Another fantastic music video by MrAndyDick (at least that's his youtube username). For this video he took only sounds and footage from "The Three Caballeros" (the animated 1944 film produced by Walt Disney) to remix it all together into one awesome video for all to enjoy. The word you're looking for is probably AWESOME!

Plantastic Fanet

Awesome and trippy music video made by using only sounds and footage from "Fantastic Planet", an animated 1973 science fiction film directed by Rene Laloux. I remember watching this as a kid. One of the best films I have ever seen. And the tune is quite trippy!

Dan Antopolski - Sandwich Rap

Funny rap video (or hip hop, how should I know? I'm old) from Dan Antopolski about the awesome goodness that are sandwiches. Funny, witty and clever. Made me LOL and hungry!


This horrifying video shows a man getting hit by a train, it's really bad. However, I am not sure if this is real or a clever fake. What do you think?

2009 commercial showreel by Cyriak Harris

Now, if you don't know Cyriak, you don't know the internet. He does some of the most awesome, wacky, craziest animation I have ever come across. This is food for your brain on drugs, or if you need a gentle WTF now and then.

Youtube description:
A compilation of various commercial work I've been doing recently(ish). Just thought I'd upload this in case anyone is wondering where the hell I've been for the last year or so.

Projects on the reel include the title sequence for BBC2 show 'Genius', 'My Territory' music video and a number of videos for CBBC and Blue Peter

Hyper Chihuahua

Funny video of a little chihuahua that has been drinking a little bit too much coffee. Either that, or he is fighting invisble demons.

'Despicable Me' Trailer HD

Funny trailer for the animated movie Despicable Me, from some of the people behind Ice Age and Horton Hears A Who. Looks good, reminds me a little of Monsters vs Aliens.

'World's Greatest Dad' Trailer HD

Funny new trailer for the upcoming comedy featuring Robin Williams. This sorta reminds me of the time when I was a teenager. What a terrible phase that was...

Youtube description:
Lance Clayton is a man who has learned to settle. He dreamed of being a rich and famous writer, but has only managed to make it as a high school poetry teacher. His only son Kyle is an insufferable jackass who wont give his father the time of day. He is dating Claire, the schools adorable art teacher, but she doesnt want to get serious -- or even acknowledge publicly that they are dating. Then, in the wake of a freak accident, Lance suffers the worst tragedy and greatest opportunity of his life. He is suddenly faced with the possibility of all the fame, fortune and popularity he ever dreamed of, if he can only live with the knowledge of how he got there.

Heyo! Harry Potter - JibJab

Funny new video from the 'Heyo Duo' (of JinJab fame), this time tackling the Harry Potter series. Made me LOL, and that's all I need as a reason to post this.

'Sherlock Holmes' Trailer 2 HD

Cool second trailer for the upcoming Sherlock Holmes movie. Looks fine and Michael Bay has nothing to do with it, so it's probably not going to suck. Or, as the Youtube description says
"A darker, more sophisticated version of Sherlock Holmes and his trusted number two, Dr. Watson."

Music From A Tree

Cool video from Diego Stocco, who wondered what it would sound like if a tree outside his house made music. So he did this cool music video for all of us to enjoy.

Vimeo says:
In the garden of my house there's a tree with lots of randomly grown twigs. It looks odd and nice at the same time. One day I asked myself if I could create a piece of music with it.

To tune the tree I picked a fundamental note and tuned the twigs by trimming them with a pencil sharpener. I used two Røde NT6 and a NTG-2 as microphones, combined with a customized stethoscope.

I recorded the tracks live on a Pro Tools LE system. I didn't use any synthesizer or sampler to create or modify the sounds. All the sounds come from playing the tree, by bowing the twigs, shaking the leaves, playing rhythms on the cortex and so on.

Mr Show - Blow Up The Moon

Funny comedy clip from Mr Show, it's all about blowing up the moon. You know, because we can. And should. The moon is a bastard.

"In early October, the spacecraft will send a heavy rocket crashing into the moon's south polar region on a mission to find water that could support future crews bound for Mars. With its mission finished, the spacecraft itself then will die in its own final crash into the lunar surface."

Dayman - FX Commercial

This is an awesome trailer for It's always sunny in Philadelphia, the comedy from the FX Network, using the Dayman song. It's quite popular on the internets, so they cut up a nice version that's made up of many versions. If I don't make sense, watch it. It's Friday and I smuggled some booze into the LOL Factory towers (my basement).

Aussies nick Flintoff’s car

Will the Aussies stop Fred from reaching the crease?

Looks like nothing can halt Freddie Flintoff from reaching the big game, not even two Aussie pranksters swapping his car for a dreaded pedalo. Check out the video now then head over to eBay to bid on the actual pedalo Fred uses. We’re auctioning it off for charity, with every penny of the proceeds going to the Andrew Flintoff Foundation – a charity that helps fund physio wings in kids’ hospitals around the UK. So bid now and bid well.

Guinea Pigs Love Watermelon

Here's something cute, a video of guinea pigs eating a watermelon. Now that's gotta cheer up your day!

Bunny Walks Like A Person

Here's a video of a bunny that can walk like a real person. It does actually sound more exciting that it is.

Panic Bear

OK, if you're an animal rights type of person, then this video is probably not for you. This is a video of a cute little bear cub living in a zoo somewhere in that is afraid of other animals. Lion cubs for example. So, of course, the best way to teach the little bear NOT to be afraid of other animals is to throw them all together into his pen. You know, to "train" the animal instics. Not for our amusement. Ahem...

Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters (Quirk Classics #2 Book Trailer)

Funny trailer for the upcoming and hotly anticipated follow-up to Quirk Books' international best seller, 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'. However, this trailer could do with a little more of the sea monster. A lot more.

3 funny PSA's

Here's a short collection of 3 funny WTF PSA's that absolutely make no sense, as they are about robots, time travel and hyperspeed. The more you know...

Great tune and awesome rhymes in this geek/nerd rap/hip hop music video telling us all about the greatness of girls that code. Yay!

"Beat It" - Mariachi Style

Awesome video of Michael Jackson's "Beat It" played by a Mariachi band at a Mexican restaurant. Sounds very loungy, more of this please!

Check out this cool basketball video of the NBA's top 10 plays of 2009. Great show of skills, just awesome!

Spider - short film

Jack and Jill are always hurting each others feelings. But like Mum said, Its all fun and games until someone loses an eye. This awesome short film was written by Nash Edgerton & David Michôd.

Cast: Nash Edgerton, Mirrah Foulkes, Chum Ehelepola, Bruno Xavier, Tony Lynch & Joel Edgerton

Girl Draws With Sand

Cool video from (I think) Ukraine's Got Talent. A girl does an amazing sand drawing. It's a bit long, but it's also a bit awesome, so watch it!

the amazing throwing something into something else trick

Ah. This video kinda takes all the "wow" out of the video I posted yesterday, but still...

Youtube aays:
Here's the easy way to do it - no need for a million takes or fancy cgi, just simple editing and masks.

I'm not saying this is how everyone does it, what I'm saying is "ok i've seen it a thousand times now, go and think of something else please."

Awesome RC plane flying skills

Very cool video of a RC plane flownby someone with almost artistic skill, this is very awesome!

Skipper Dan by Weird Al Yankovic

This is the new music video “Skipper Dan”by “Weird Al” Yankovic from his “Internet Leaks” EP. The animated music video was directed by Divya Srinivasan and it's pretty funny.

My Mother's Red Hat w/Alicia Silverstone & Alanis Morissette

Funny spoof trailer for a road movie from Funny or Die. This is funny and it gave me LOLs - see, I don't ask for much.

Description says:
Two friends embark on a road trip after one suffers a great loss in this new indie film. Featuring an unforgettable soundtrack!

The World's Fastest... Everything

Cool video collection of the world's fastest clapper, shooter, cup stacker, runner, undresser,goal scorer, and so on. Quite impressive to see. I think a couple of things were sped up, but that's just me.

A Normal Day 2 - Crazy Throwing Skills Video

These guys really know how to throw everything. And it shows. This video left me with my mouth wide open (only for a bee to take the opportunity and sting me on my tongue). Of course I am lying, but this is a very cool video. And the order of the day is to watch it. Now!

Yet Another Crazy Cup Noodle Advert

And here's another fantastic Japanese commercial for those cup noodles. This time, the "onion man" shoots garlic from his fingers. I think. You decide as long as we can agree on "WTF?".

Crazy Cup Noodle Advert

This is just as much LOL as it is WTF. Not going to say much about it, but there's someone shooting cheese from his hands. Of course this funny commercial is from Japan. We don't have to understand what is going on as long as we have the LOLs.

Crazy Guy Smashes Windshield With His Head

Well. Obviously this skill might come in handy, you know, after the apocalypse. When humanity has run out of hammers. Until then, this little jolly video shows just a rather crazy Australian guy using his head to smash the windshield of a car. And why the hell not. Also: WTF?

Cheech and Chong Cinemash "Tron"

Cheeck and Chong, weed comedy heroes, get into a heated debate about canabis prices (see, even they're suffering from the economic crisis) and decide to "Tron for it", launching themselves into the Trom movie (the famous light bike race). Awesome and rather cool video!

The King Blues vs Byron

The King Blues in a music mash up with a difference, with lead singer Itch revealing a more poetic leaning in his recital of a Byron classic. His contemporary rendition of ‘we’ll go no more a-roving’ is more in the the style of modern ‘spoken word’, and offset against a live set in which the band are slowed down to demonstrate the impact of the words. Lyrics are poetry when you think about it…

'District 9' Trailer 2 (HD)

Cool second trailer for the upcoming sci-fi movie District 9. This looks awesome!

Youtube description:
Thirty years ago, aliens made first contact with Earth. Humans waited for the hostile attack, or the giant advances in technology. Neither came. Instead, the aliens were refugees, the last survivors of their home world. The creatures were set up in a makeshift home in South Africas District 9 as the worlds nations argued over what to do with them. Now, patience over the alien situation has run out. Control over the aliens has been contracted out to Multi-National United, a private company uninterested in the aliens welfare they will receive tremendous profits if they can make the aliens awesome weaponry work. So far, they have failed; activation of the weaponry requires alien DNA. The tension between the aliens and the humans comes to a head when an MNU field operative, Wikus van der Merwe, contracts a mysterious virus that begins changing his DNA. Wikus quickly becomes the most hunted man in the world, as well as the most valuable he is the key to unlocking the secrets of alien technology. Ostracized and friendless, there is only one place left for him to hide: District 9.

Lily Allen - 22 (HD)

Great official music video for Lily Allen's fantastic new single '22', taken from her new album 'It's Not Me, It's You'.

Open a Banana Like A Monkey

Cool video of a guy showing us how to easily open a banana. Just like a monkey would. Because opening bananas is really, really hard, right? LOL!

Auto-Tune the News #6: Michael Jackson. drugs. Palin.

Another great and funny edition of Auto-Tune the news. This video needs no description, I guess everyone is familair with the concept by now. Also, the title pretty much gives it all away, doesn't it?

Microsoft Office 2010: The Movie

Short teaser trailer for Microsoft Office, made up like a cool action movie trailer. But hey, it's still Microsoft!
Tagline: What if Microsoft Office... was a summer blockbuster action movie?

United Airlines Breaks Guitars

Funny music video by a musician who went on a flight with United Airlines and had his guitar broken.

Youtube description:
In the spring of 2008, Sons of Maxwell were traveling to Nebraska for a one-week tour and my Taylor guitar was witnessed being thrown by United Airlines baggage handlers in Chicago. I discovered later that the $3500 guitar was severely damaged. They didnt deny the experience occurred but for nine months the various people I communicated with put the responsibility for dealing with the damage on everyone other than themselves and finally said they would do nothing to compensate me for my loss. So I promised the last person to finally say no to compensation (Ms. Irlweg) that I would write and produce three songs about my experience with United Airlines and make videos for each to be viewed online by anyone in the world.

Miss Muir and the six pack

Miss Muir is back from her Direct Holiday and she’s returned with a special present!
Miss Muir has been on a hot, hot Direct Holiday and now she’s back at school with her own life size “souvenir” – a well tanned, well fit, six pack toting Spanish waiter. See what the kids think of Juan and the squirty cream! Miss Muir’s in love (or lust) with “the direct effect”!
