Cool video of a videogame that takes elements of the arcade classic Pong and football (or soccer). Looks like fun, I would love to play this!
Sportpong - The Sporty Arcade Game
Invited to the Art Foundry Kunstgiesserei St.Gallen Sportpong was located in the metal workshop, an amazing and unique ambiance.
Great new funny video from Frenchman Remi Gaillard. In this video he pranks unsuspecting people on their bicycles and gives them a fantastic Tour de France style welcome. Tres awesome, Remi! Le chat est dans la rue avec la voiture. Or something like that.

So this guy walks about 4,000 miles on foot through China and doesn't cut his hair and grows a beard. And, of course, does a timelapse of the whole thing and puts it on the internet. What else to do?
I am sorry if I am boring you with all these game trailers, but I suppose it's just a phase and it will go away. I own a Wii and can only look in awe at the awesome graphics for the xbox 360 and PS3, so forgive me for this. Here's a cool HD trailer for Assassin's Creed 2. Looks nice.
Here's a Keyboard Cat tribute video from Ubisoft featuring Sam Fisher of Splinter's Cell fame. This gave me videogame-geek and internet-meme-geek chuckles. Double win!
Update: Ubisoft deleted the original video from their channel. This is a slightly different version. Blame them, not me.
Lines are closed. Lines are open. Celebrity Fame Zeppelin is an exclusive new reality format show broadcast from a Zeppelin. A parody of Big Brother , this animated sketch comes from their Radio 4 show "That Mitchell and Webb Sound".
I had the trailer for the new Mike Judge comedy 'EXTRACT' on the LOL Factory here yesterday and today we get two famous Mike Judge characters presenting a clip from the movie. Beavis and Butthead! Yay!
Beavis & Butthead present a clip from the film 'Extract'
Very cool video of some art projection on a castle. Looks like a castle to me. Could also be a mansion, what the hell do I know. Still, very impressive and cool stuff. Everyone should watch this!
We got invited along to do some video mapping projections at a secret festival in the North East of England. The theme and logo of the party was the heart. We spent a couple of weeks in the studio creating the show which opened the party.
Check out this trailer for the ‘Steampunk’ genre novel Leviathan written by Scott Westerfeld, which is due out October 6.
From what I have read about the novel, it sounds like a great story line. It is basically about an alternate world where we fought World War I with crazy ass “War Machines”. The character Deryn Sharp is disguised as a boy so that she can join the British Air Service
A guy cycles around Toronto for five years with a GPS attached to his recumbent bike, etches a beautiful street map of the city.
A time-lapse animation of my recumbent cycling in Toronto, spanning 2004 to 2009. In all, about 650 hours of cycling totalling almost 8100km.
This is the total record of all my recumbent riding. Individual years are also available as separate videos, and there are more details in the comments on those.
The red path represents five minutes of cycling. Rides outside the borders of the map are represented by a red arrow; the longer the arrow, the further the bike is from the border.
Great 8bit music video by Superpowerless. The video is made up from footage of Alice in Wonderland (Walt Disney 1951). The lyrics used in the song are from Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871) which was written by Lewis Carroll.

Awesome and funny new trailer (number 2) for the new comedy by Mike Judge. The creator of Beavis and Butthead (as well as Office Space and other funny stuff) fame.
To the outside eye, Joel Reynold seems to have everything. After all, being the owner of a business he built from the ground up - with its patented brand of culinary extracts - should make the Extract King a happy man. However, if Joel hasnt reached his front door by 8 oclock, hell find his wife, Suzie cinching up her sweatpants and about as interested in him as he is in her mastery of supermarket coupon design. Sexually frustrated, Joel confides in his best pal, Dean, a barkeep and soon finds himself wrapped up in a convoluted scheme to make Suzie cheat on him first with a dim-witted gigolo thereby allowing him to pursue beautiful new employee Cindy with a clear conscience. Unbeknownst to Joel, the object of his affections is a con artist/sociopath - just one step away from having her parole revoked. Meanwhile, Joel and his second-in-command, Brian have entered negotiations for a buyout of Reynold Extracts by General Mills. All they need to do is keep things tidy, quiet and moving while waiting for the final offer. Of course, this fails to take into account the employees on the factory floor.
Another great animation by Cyriak. This gus is just awesome!
For non-UK residents, Jim Davidson is an old-fashioned racist British comedian.
This clip was commissioned for a tv show but ended up on the cutting-room floor. So here it is, risen from the grave to make the world a slightly happier place.
This never gets old, another great episode of Auto-Tune The News! Yay! My favourite bit is still Katie Couric: "Very thin ice". Simply awesome!

WTF? This is crazy and probably NSFW. Strange, but funny .So watch this and let me know what you think what the hell this just is...
Deep in the forest lived Billy and his charming companions. They peacefully honed their bodies and listened to music there. But a wave of development came upon the forests. One who would turn all to road. Kagamine Rin had come.
Activision have licensed a bunch of old and new clips of people doing stupid things and hurting themselves and got Swede Mason of Jeremy Clarkson Beatbox fame to mash them all up into a viral for a new car racing game called Blur. He's done a wicked job.
While we're on topic of cool music videos, here's DW Kung Fu Combo Movie Final. Deryl Wingate has taken sounds from a Kung Fu movie and turned them into a music video. Not much explanation needed, really. just watch and enjoy! There's also a great reference to a certain song about big butts.
