Allianz Vanessa "Reach for the Stars" Music Video


Music video for "Reach for the Stars" by German singer Vanessa. She starred in a commercial for Allianz insurance in Germany.

Lyrics:
I reach for the stars
but you keep pulling me down again
I can't help it, this is just bringing us down

and I swallow all the words that I kept safe
just to make sure, just to make sure
yeah I swallow all the words that I kept safe
just to make sure, I dont hurt you

don't get it wrong
you mean a lot to me
but sometimes it's just safe to let go
don't get it wrong
you mean a lot to me
but sometimes it's just better to let go

this isn't healthy
and it's not worth our nerves
cause we could get by so easy

and I swallow all the words that I kept safe
just to make sure, just to make sure
yeah I swallow all the words that I kept safe
just to make sure I don't hurt you
just to make sure

don't get it wrong
you mean a lot to me
but sometimes it's just safe to let go
don't get it wrong
you mean a lot to me
but sometimes it's just better to let go

Super Mario vs Queen Mash-Up


This isn't really a mash-up. It's footage from Super Mario Galaxy set to the music of Don't stop me now by Queen. The images fit the music quite well though, and that's all I ask for. We are very strict here with our quality control, you see.

Light Drive


Very cool video showing an Arduino-powered stepper motor controlling a set of light sources attached to a record player spinning to the tune of the Tron Legacy trailer.

Vimeo snip:
The video is stop motion, so every frame is an individually shot photograph. Each photograph is a long exposure photo, with exposures reaching up to 20 seconds in some cases.

To control the lights, I used an Arduino controlled via bluetooth to drive a stepper motor. The stepper motor controls the movements of the lights remotely from Processing.

The light sources include cold cathode case lights, EL wire, lasers and more.

Very cool animation/viral video for Nokia's new N8 phone. Made by Aardman.
Youtube snip:
Professor Fletcher's invention of the CellScope, which is a Nokia device with a microscope attachment, was the inspiration for a teeny-tiny film created by Sumo Science at Aardman.

New viral from Intel: Intel Bass Jump


Engineers quit hanging around
Faced with the challenge of creating the world’s biggest Intel chime, five intrepid employees from Intel Romania throw themselves at the problem, literally!

Check out the behind the scenes here www.intel.ro/bassjump. Think you can do better? Play the game at www.facebook.com/bassjump.
Following the success of the 2009 Cannonbells viral which delivered more than one million views, the EMEA marketing team has created a sequel: Bass Jump.

The Bass Jump viral features five intrepid employees from Intel Romania who create the world’s largest Intel bong, as they fall from a rooftop onto inflatable cushions. As each one lands, the gust of air triggers a horn blast, with the five notes mirroring the well-known Intel bong sequence.

The viral is designed to create a humorous take on Intel’s Sponsors of Tomorrow campaign, which emphasises Intel’s latest technological innovations, demonstrating how the brand is helping to shape the future, while also showing the human side of the company.

Bass Jump focuses on the promotion of the Intel brand, rather than a processor product, to help show the brand in a new and creative light. It follows in the footsteps of last year’s Cannonbells viral, which saw Intel staff being fired from five cannon at giant wind chimes, to create the Intel audio signature.

The Bass Jump website features the main video, behind-the-scenes footage and profiles of the characters involved, as well as a link to a Flash-based game in which the player must correctly time the five jumpers in order to get the chime to sound right. The Bass Jump game is hosted on its own Facebook page, so people can become Bass Jump fans and play the Bass Jump game.

Find out more about the Bass Jump viral here www.intel.ro/bassjump. Play the game at www.facebook.com/bassjump.

Disney Tangled New Official Trailer


Youtube snip:
The new trailer for Disney's upcoming feature animation comedy Tangled. Starring the voices of Mandy Moore as Rapunzel, Zachary Levi as Flynn Rider, Donna Murphy as Mother Gothel, Ron Perlman, Jeffrey Tambor and Brad Garrett. Disney's Tangled is a classic story with a twist, and lots of hair.

Walt Disney Pictures presents Tangled, one of the most hilarious, hair-raising tales ever told.

When the kingdom's most wanted -- and most charming -- bandit, Flynn Rider (voice of Zachary Levi), hides out in a mysterious tower, he's taken hostage by Rapunzel (voice of Mandy Moore), a beautiful and feisty tower-bound teen with 70 feet of magical, golden hair. Flynn's curious captor, who's looking for her ticket out of the tower where she's been locked away for years, strikes a deal with the handsome thief and the unlikely duo set off on an action-packed escapade, complete with a super-cop horse, an over-protective chameleon and a gruff gang of pub thugs. Disney's Tangled is a story of adventure, heart, humour and hair -- lots of hair.

This film explores playful uses for the increasingly ubiquitous ‘glowing rectangles’ that inhabit the world.

We use photographic and animation techniques that were developed to draw moving 3-dimensional typography and objects with an iPad. In dark environments, we play movies on the surface of the iPad that extrude 3-d light forms as they move through the exposure. Multiple exposures with slightly different movies make up the stop-frame animation.

Remember this video? The weird Russian singer? Yeah, he was awesome. So awesone in fact, that they made an 8bit tribute video/song.

walrus doing sit-ups


Well, there is no point denying it. This walrus is a bit on the heavy side, not to say rather fat. Good for him that he has decided to do something against his morbid obesity by embracing a healthy lifestyle, starting with a good dose of sit-ups.

City of Toronto E Waste - Chuck & Vince


Rather brilliant TV commercial for the city of Toronto's e-waste collection day. Every garbage disposal ad should look like this. Not that there are many to begin with.

Bad cover: Sweet Child O'Mine


"Bad" doesn't quite over it. Not even close. This is a truly awful rendition of the Guns N' Roses ballad Sweet Child O'Mine. The original song is slowly murdered by 3 guys who put a lot of effort into what seems, at first look, music making. It might not be quite as good as the original but I wonder if Axl Rose would be any better today after all these years. In any case, do enjoy!

Cache Rules Everything Around Me

Crazy councilman speech


Phil Davidson is a councilman. He is holding a speech. And he is, in light terms, "bat shit crazy". The whole time I was waiting for him to take out a machine gun and start firing into the audience. But he didn't. He's just applying for treasurer. Good speech though.

Fat cat in a vase


Cat videos always win at the internet. And this is no exception. Behold, a video of a fat cat getting into a clay vase. Win.

Youtube snip:
We got Annie from the cat rescue mission as a kitten. She liked to play in a pot. Touble was she got fat as she got older but still likes to try and get in the pot

Watermelon to the face


Am I the last one to post this video? Here's something for the mean person inside you, a woman shoots a watermelon straight into her face. This hurts. That's why it's funny.

Youtube snip:
During a challenge on the show, contestants must launch watermelons from a giant sling shot contraption. This chick fails and the thing backfires sending the watermelon square into her face.

Memorable quote: "You have to finish!" "What? I can'T even see straight!"

Snakes on a Plane - Early Auditions


Funny video of this guy doing impressions (De Niro, Nicholson, Pesci & Walken) auditioning for the part that gave Samuel L. Jackson his most epic movie line ever.
Best bit coming right at you at 1:14. Also, NSFW for language.

Facejacker arrives!


Terry Tibbs takes over Price-Drop TV in this preview from the brand new series of Facejacker.

Really funny clip here from a show you should look out for. Some of you might remember Fonejacker from a couple of years ago, an animated prank call show on e4 (sounds weird but was proper funny). It picked up lots of fans, famous characters and catchphrases (Terry Tibbs’ “Talk to Me” a personal favourite) won some awards yadda yadda. Cut to now and Kayvan Novak, the guy behind the Fonejacker mask has made the move to prime-time Friday night on Channel 4, only this time he’s getting into the real world rather than pranking people from the end of a phone.

The characters to look out for from the episode I’ve seen are the afore-mentioned, wheeler dealer car salesman, Terry Tibbs; scamster Augustus Kwembe, and Dr Ali, a pretty questionable plastic surgeon. All of them are played by the same guy, and the set-ups with the public are totally real so the only actor there is the Facejacker himself which makes for some brilliantly uncomfortable cringey moments.

Kicks off on Channel 4 on the 16th at 10pm, well worth a watch.

Great new viral ad for a Samsung camera in which a dude with some excellent card throwing skills, kinda like Gambit from the X-Men minus the explosions, does some impressive tricks.
Youtube snip:
Man who plays with the business card all the time.
The whole thing was performed for the new Samsung Digital Camcorder H205 launch and it was also filmed by H205.
It is like he is throwing a tiny ball or something sharp and the show is absolutely amazing!!!

Enjoy the performance!

Breast Expansion - Water Balloon


This video is making the rounds and that's always a good excuse to post a video. This rather interesting video is, of course fake. How on Earth are you going to make your boobs bigger by dropping water on them, seriously? Still, I am posting this to inspire a scientific debate in the comments section.

Biz Markie's Birthday Cake 2010


Look, it's a birthday cake! Yes, that's right, a birthday cake. It may look like a Technics DJ deck but it's a lovely, moving cake.

The Conception of Wine - Infographic


Cool animation video by Tiago Cabaco about wine. Even interesting for people that do not drink wine. Probably.

Galactic Empire State of Mind


Apparently Darth Vader has got 99 problems but a Jedi ain't one. Funny video from the people at @collegehumor doing a parody of Jay Z's Empire State Of Mind. A bit like New Dork, which is also pretty funny.

Lyrics:
[DARTH VADER/JAY-Z]
Yeah
No longer Anakin
Formerly a Skywalker
Son's next rebel hero
But I'll be Sith forever
I'm the newest Dark lord And since my training years
I can choke from anywhere
Yeah my force is everywhere Used to run with Obi Wan We were both best buds foreva
But after three movies Now I've got a blood vendetta Grew up on Tatooine
No vegetation Catch me rolling through the cosmos in a moon-like station to Leia's home nation Death Star wrecks it Now princess knows, Vader ain't one to mess with
Flying through the trenches
Blasting rebel noobies
What happened to the fat one
Think he died of heart disease All that's left is this guy
Chasing him in my TIE I won't deny That his force is pretty damn high
Damn i just got wiped out
Falcon shot the back of me
Spinning into outerspace
But I'll be back definitely

[PRINCESS LEIA/ALICIA KEYS]
In Star Wars Empire is out to find Leia Death star plans in R2 Shoot the exhaust port Kenobi may now be see-through But the force is within Luke
Let's hear it for new hope, new hope, new hope
[Vader: You're welcome Obi Wan... I made you a ghost!]

[DARTH VADER/JAY-Z]
Catch me rockin boots and a cape like superman
Hell, I made wearing black more famous than that Jay-Z can
You should know I'd find you, hiding out at Echo
Now I got a Blizzard Force eliminate you quick yo
Welcome to the planet Hoth AT-ATs hit the spot Walking tanks are too legit
But they fall down a lot Check the front, check the back, cant find the Falcon yet
We need them all alive, so no disintegrations Boba Fett 8 million asteroids, where'd your little ship go?
Get me to Cloud City, I got Lando on my payroll
Me I gotta double check if carbonite's ok If freezin's safe for Han
Doing Luke the same way
New deal Lando
Ain't no pardon
Kid blew up my boys
Rest in peace Moff Tarkin
Turns out we are family
Embrace your dark fate
Dad and son together, yo No way the emperor's safe, cause...

[PRINCESS LEIA/ALICIA KEYS] In Star Wars
Now Han Solo's a coffee table
There's nothing Luke can do [Vader: Should've joined me, bro!]
He's on Dagobah
With some dyslexic Jedi dude
Right hand still got sliced through Looks like they struck back, struck back, struck back

[DARTH VADER/JAY-Z]
Lightsabers grinding
Palpatine's smiling
Cause he knew it would come to this The light side is blind with casualties
Who do evil casually, then gradually become worse
Don't fight your destiny
Wasn't a great dad, true
Absent all the while
No happy times behind us, and plus, now I'm killin' you
Keep fencing mister, 'cause now I sense a sister
You don't go bad, maybe I'll enlist her
Now Emperor wants you, only wants me rubbed out You controlled your anger, stayed light side devout Watch out kid, he's got lightning bolts to immolate Uh-uh, hell no, daddy powers activate
End this prune with a badass murder suicide
Bald headed, mask off, heart melted kid you were right Burn all my gear so those Ewoks can't wear it again
Do it, I'll be watching you, a ghost, name of Anakin

[PRINCESS LEIA/ALICIA KEYS] In Star Wars
Destroy new Death Star's generator
Ewoks to the rescue
Blast through to the core
This Regime's gonna be brand new
Galactic Empire's through
The Jedi have returned, returned, returned

Scarface School Play


Wow, this is funny and disturbing at the same time! Why would you have a bunch of kids recreate Scarface for a school play? Meh, why the hell not? Life's tough enough. get the kids used to it, I say!

Enter Sandman by Metallica (Jazz Style)


Cool music video for all the jazz cats out there. Enjoy Metallica's Enter Sandman like you've never heard it before, in jazzy lounge style.

Funny music video from Jon Lajoie about his experiences on Chatroulette. I have tried it and I can tell you that this song is about 85% accurate. Unfortunately.

OMG Cat


Time for another funny cat video! What is it that the cat is seeing that she goes 'OMG'? I am not sure if I really want to know.

Incestual Undertones in Star Wars


Oh noes! The relationship between Han and Leia will probably not be the same after this revelation. It's a good thing they didn't make any more movies after Return of the Jedi, otherwise we'd get to see Leia in therapy because Han is hooked on spice and Luke dating a Taun Taun. Funny Star Wars Video.

LIGHTS OFF – THE FIRST VIDEO CONTROLLED BY YOUR LIGHT SWITCH


Really cool video, and interactive, too!
snip:
The player will give you a virtual light switch that changes the storyline from ‘light’ to ‘dark’. Jump between the two as much as you like! Remember, it’s always more fun in the dark. If you have a WEBCAM and you really want to have fun, hit ‘PLAY’ and then ‘ALLOW’:
The two storylines will now be controlled by the light switch in your room. The player will not change to the ‘dark’ storyline unless your room is completely dark! If you don’t have access to a completely dark room, just press your hand against your webcam to make the camera think your room is dark.

Oh internet, what have you done? This music video gives us a rather dark version of the classic song Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong. Death Metal Style. Not my favourite....

Of course all good ads rip off some brilliant viral video from years ago, just like this one. Still, it is quity hypnotic and well done. For a commercial for dog food.

Chicane – Come Back


Very cool and rather creative music video for Chicane's new track "Come Back", just as the title says. This is pretty well done and will make you all warm an fuzzy from the inside. Kind of like drinking lighter fluid.

LYRICS:
Now Im in the blogosphere, Now I'm in the twitterverse
Fans get so immersed, But I'm a nerd forever
I'm the new Zuckerberg, And since my website
I been cookin dough like a chef servin killa-bytes
Used to be the basement, Back at my mom's place
Buildin web traffic so that we could sell an ad space
Make way for the, One man businesses
Bail outs finished with, White collar criminals
New sega genesis, Entrepreneur time
Makin big plans, To dominate the online
Yeah, I'm on YouTube, this is one man
Sharin' google revenue, With songs on my webcam
Science is the new art, Databases day to day
Geeks spreadin' sheet smarts, Hustle, make the data pay
I could be in Valleywag plus Geekologie
Tell from my avatar, That I'm most definitely

The New Dork,
Social networks - what dreams are made of, There's nothing you can't do
Now you're the New Dork
This V.C. money is brand new, The geek is now damn cool
Let's hear it for new dorks, new dorks, new dorks

Catch me up in Techcrunch, Right on the homepage
Hell, I'm on Gizmodo, In a photo bout a phone craze
And Im up in Mashable, weekend trip to New York
Bar pitty, 1oak, parties full of New Dorks
Now I'm pitchin business plans, From the backs of napkans
Micro-lend to Africans, Monetize Kazakastan
Catch me up on linked-in, Dog, C.E.O.
You can see where I be, With the I.P.O.
Now I'm up in skinny jeans, Now a hipster's lurkin'
Used to be a reject, But now I'm steady jerkin'
Now my glasses mainstream, Now the girlies eyein me
Popular kids copy me, The new swag is irony
Comin' from the small time, Girls couldn't find me
Now I scale models, Like I climb on top of Heidi
Start big trends, with tweets that I pass on
You should follow me, cuz I'm friends with Ashton
CHORUS
