THE BEST Etc

South Park: Call of Duty

South Park has always scored points for relevance (or irrelevance), and the clip above is no different: a classroom turns into a Call of Duty: WaW session. In Cartman’s words: “You got pwned!”

All we can say is wow: Kevin of Ft. Wayne is a handlebar virtuoso, riding his bike in this Guitar Hero viral marketing video; the song is The Living End’s Prisoner of Society.

iPhone App: Numberkey

Always a conspicuous omission from Apple’s laptops, the Numberkey iPhone App just makes perfect sense: for $2, it’ll use WiFi and turn your iPhone into a virtual 18-key numpad.

Transparent PSP Billboards

Transparent PSP Billboards

They’re just concepts, but we love these PSP billboards painted to look transparent; Spidey and the errant TIE fighter look great, but there’s no topping that rooftop sniper.

It looks like someone had a field day with a shrink ray, but this DIY Mac Pro Mini is actually made from the salvaged mobo of a damaged MacBook and a Macally hard drive enclosure.

Hubcap Art

Hubcap Art

Due to its very nature, recycled art can often be a bit trashy; not so for Ptolemy Elrington, whose Hubcap Creatures are easily some of the coolest biomechanical creations ever.

Video: Welcome Back

Best known for their No Pants and Best Buy pranks, Improv Everywhere’s Welcome Back is a bit more tame but still quite funny: watch as they welcome random strangers at an airport.

Oblong g-Speak

There are man caves, and then there are MAN CAVES: these garage theaters are the ultimate in cinematic gluttony, from a rotating floor to a view of the Jedi Temple. Update: more here!

Arguably the coolest use of flip books we’ve ever seen, this imaginative music video for Kraak and Smaak’s Squeeze Me is directed by Dutch duo Superelectric and Andre Maat.

Lopsided Robot Battle

Lopsided Robot Battle

Simultaneously cruel but a bit funny, this lopsided battle pits ALCNON, a 1.3 meter, 16 kg robot against a much smaller opponent; it’s like David vs. Goliath, minus the slingshot.
