Apparently this cool trailer for CGI fest TOY STORY 3 is leaked a couple of days early, so enjoy it until someone at Pixar pulls it off the internet. I will put up and HD version as soon as I come across it. Until then this will do.
Update: new source, works again.
Toy Story 3 Plot:
Andy is now a young adult, departing for college, and his toys, including Woody and Buzz Lightyear are being sent to storage. Andy has a change of heart and decides to keep Woody. Before the rest of the toys can be put in the attic, they are accidentally thrown away and are picked up by the garbage men. The toys find themselves at a local day-care center, where they must try to survive the pre-school children. Woody attempts to save his friends and find themselves a new home.

Dallas intro on C64

Yes! See the Dallas Tv show intro rendered in 16 colours on a Commodore C=64. How awesome is this? This makes my old nerdy 8bit heart weep, that's how cool this is.

Twatif? - "The Office"

So.....what if you were restricted in the real world to only 140 Characters? Just like twitter? The office might be a sticky place. Gave me a couple of chuckles. How about you?

South Park: Billy Mays sells Chipotlaway

Funny clip from the latest South Park episode featuring Billy May in an infomercial selling Chipotleaway. That product changed Cartman's life. That's how good it is. If it works for cartoons it must be good!

Jed's Other Poem (Beautiful Ground) Music Video

Youtube snip:
Official music video for Grandaddy's song "Jed's Other Poem (Beautiful Ground)." Jeddy-3, a humanoid robot built from spare parts, is a recurring character in Grandaddy's 2000 album "The Sophtware Slump." According to Grandaddy, before Jed's system crashed he wrote poems. Poems for no one.

I programmed this entirely in Applesoft BASIC on a vintage 1979 Apple ][+ with 48K of RAM -- a computer so old it has no hard drive, mouse up/down arrow keys, and only types in capitals. First open-source music video, code available on website. Cinematography by Jeff Bernier.

PUFF!: silly iPhone application

Funny video of a silly iPhone application in which you have to huff and puff a lot. So you can blow off the skirt on asian girls. Or use your finger to rub on them. Seriously, I wouldn't be surprised if this makes it into the Top 25 apps.

Never Mind The Buzzcocks: What do you use to put glasses on?

Funny clip from the BBC 2 award-winning pop quiz. Noel Fielding and Phill Jupitus are joined by guest host Rhod Gilbert and panellists Greg Davies, Martin Kemp, Gabby Logan and Jeremy Reynolds.

Wow, look at this kid go! Awesome! He sure has some mighty accordion skills on show. Amazing, even if you're not into accordions. Or into music. Or stuff.

Powermat commercial

Funny commercial with lots of swearing (safe for work, though) about this new magic device called powermat. Its f*cking quantum mechanics!

Best Wedding Slideshow Ever

Ben got married last month. He asked me to make the wedding slideshow. My instructions: “We want our slideshow to be DIFFERENT. You can do whatever you like, and I won’t ever try to approve it.”

This is what I did.

Features a very prominent Nobel Peace Prize winner ;-)

Virgin Girls Advert Spoof

Funny spoof of the Virgin Atlantic - 25 Years: Still Red Hot advert. It was made by the Hartlepool Round Table lads who set off for Round Table's National Sporting Weekend in Colchester and decided to go dressed as the Virgin 25 Years' Still Red Hot girls. It was filmed at Newcastle Airport. If you know the original commercial, this will make you LOL. If you haven't seen it: Move along!

Piano stairs

Pretty viral video from Volkswagen Sweden. They installed piano stairs next to an escalator to see if people would use the stairs more. In short: Yes!
Youtube snip:
We believe that the easiest way to change people's behaviour for the better is by making it fun to do. We call it The fun theory.

Youtube snip:
This Halloween, you and your friends can star in the Monster Mash, JibJab style! Don a mad scientist's haircut, werewolf features or the classic Dracula widow's peak and mash it up!

Andy Samberg - I Threw it On The Ground

Yes, yes, this is an old hat already, I know. But I don't live in the states and youtube won't show it to me because of some stupid country restrictions. I'm not a part of your system, I'm an adult.
So that's my excuse for posting this awesome SNL Digital Short with Adam Samberg like a year late. Good day to you sir.

'2012' Trailer 2 HD

Cool second trailer for Roland Emmerich's disaster movie 2012. Looks like the world is coming to an end. Again.

Star Trek vs. Aqua Teen

Being a Aqua Teen Hunger Force fan myself, this made me LOL. See how Picard and the crew of the USS Enterprise face off against the Mooninites, Spacecataz-style.

Speaking Piano

WTF? A "speaking piano"? Reciting the Proclamation of the European Environmental Criminal Court at the World Venice Forum 2009? Why, sure thing! Unfortunately it's all in German, but what the piano says is all English. And scary. I was afraid that robots would take over the world. I was wrong. It's pianos we have to be afraid of. Very afraid.

Sonic vs. Pac Man Ghosts

Awesome video showing what would happen if Sonic The Hedgehog was in the Pac Man maze eating aways those little pills and chasing ghosts.... Looks like the game would be over in just a couple of seconds. Someone should make this game!

Balloons in liquid nitrogen

Really cool video of a scientific experiment (yeah, right!) in which Matt Strafuss, a technical instructor in MIT's Physics Department, demonstrates the ideal gas law. A drop in temperature with fixed mass and external pressure will result in a smaller volume, and vice-versa. Science but awesome. Because of the ballons, you see.

Very awesome and very funny 1 minute version of the horror movie 28 Days later, all done in one take. Just brilliant!
Youtube snip:

Curb Your Enthusiasm: The Hug

Larry hugs an old friend and breaks his glasses. Hilarity ensues.

Awesome video of 3 cats fighting it out cat-style (sly and distinguished) over a steak. The little cat in this funny video has all the brains - and most of the steak!

Great cartoon from the early days of animation. Wikipedia says:

In the film, four human skeletons dance and make music around a spooky graveyard. It is the first entry in the Silly Symphonies series. In 1994, it was voted #18 of the 50 Greatest Cartoons of all time by members of the animation field.

Stewie Griffin by Derren Brown

UK mental magician/Jedi @derrenbrown impersonates Stewie Griffin from Family Guy. And he is not bad at it. There's probably some sort of subliminal message in this video. There MUST be!

You are being shagged by a rare parrot

Youtube snip says it all:

In New Zealand the travellers make their way through one of the most dramatic landscapes in the world. They are on a journey to find the last remaining kakapo, a fat, flightless parrot which, when threatened with attack, adopts a strategy of standing very still indeed.

Larry David guest stars on Hannah Montana

Larry David can't get into a restaurant. I, just like him, blame his daughter. Hannah Montana gets in. Just so you know. In case you don'T understand the comedy in this. Because of dementia. Or too much drink.

Terminator - How It Should End

Funny cartoon combining two of my favourite time-travel movies, Terminator and Back To The Future.

Uncle Grandpa

Crazy cartoon by Pete Browngardt for Cartoon Network's Cartoonstitute. This is one awesome, crazy, weird, trippy, and, of course, funny cartoon. You must watch it.

Poo Pants by Cyriak

Youtube snip:
this film is at its heart an exploration of both personal and cultural themes, exposing our exploitative relationship with our environment on a personal level and, by extension, as a society or species. The poo in this sense is a symbol of the by-products of our capitalist consumerism, with alan titchmarsh reflecting the role of the media; alerting us, ridiculing us, perhaps even judging us - the media becomes a collective conscience that binds us to our own environmental mortality. The refrain of titchmarsh is answered by our inability as a global society to take a truly global responsibilty; as we continue to poo at paul's we are nevertheless reminded that the poo is in fact very much situated in our own pants.

And if you made it through that bullshit then your prize is a link to download the poo-pants song:

For Improv Everywhere's latest public prank, over 2,000 people walked "invisible dogs" down the streets of Brooklyn on a Sunday afternoon.

Participants of all ages spread out from Red Hook to Brooklyn Heights, very seriously walking their very silly dogs.
