Valve’s Source 2 game engine was first used for Dota 2, but most recently powered the stunning Half-Life: Alyx. To celebrate its many capabilities, Corey Laddo put together this amusing tribute video, inspired by the earlier fan clip “Source Makes Me Cry.” More games need High Fidelity 4K Bread.
THE BEST Funny Stuff
What Jeremy Schaefer’s animated short lacks in depth, it makes up for with action and style. The premise is simple, yet sets up some entertaining scenarios. Basically, there’s a mercenary who surprises his targets by hiding and popping out of all sorts of boxes. If cats were assassins, this is how they’d do it.
Detective Eddie Valiant has a tough case on his hands. Will he figure out who murdered novelty mogul Marvin Acme, or will he come up empty? Tune in, and find out as “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” meets “Unsolved Mysteries” in this hilarious mashup from the guys at Nerdist.
Taking classes online has its share of challenges, especially when it comes to hearing things when the audio sucks. It gets even worse when it comes to trade schools, where power tools can drown out even the loudest of teachers. Anyone who’s ever taken a shop class can surely relate to MenzMade’s silly video.
YouTube channel There I Ruined It is in the business of messing with popular songs and, well, ruining them by covering them in a totally inappropriate style. Their bluegrass reworking of Michael Jackson’s “Bad” is so wrong that it’s right. We also chuckled at their swing version of Nirvana’s “Come As You Are.”
It’s been a while since we checked in with the guys at SoKrispyMedia, with their last Chalk Warfare video debuting back in 2014. Now, they’ve drawn their chalk weapons once again, and headed back to the battlefield to give us their most epic action and VFX sequence yet. We loved the R/C car and gravity gun made out of chalk.
Boston Dynamics has made a name for themselves with their humanoid and animal-inspired robots. We’ve previously met Spot, their robo-dog that can handle all kinds of terrain and carry small payloads. Future Punk made this fun video that imagines what Spot might have been like had he come out in the 1990s.
One of the perils of living in the big city is being awakened in the middle of the night to the sound of an annoying car alarm that just won’t shut up. Back in 2018, the group Too Many Zooz invited musicians to create something more entertaining with the repetitive noise, and Pittsburgh band Big Blitz rose to the challenge.
It’s been a while since we took a proper vacation – especially one on a beach with fruity pineapple and rum drinks, sunshine, and a cool breeze. Perhaps if we had a vacation simulator Rube Goldberg machine like the one that Sprice cooked up, we’d be in a more cheerful and relaxed mood.
As good as the graphics have gotten in video games, the character animations aren’t always as convincing. In this hilarious video from Komazawa Isolation, the protagonist walks around Tokyo’s Shibuya district just like they do in third-person action games like Grand Theft Auto. The spot-on camera work seals the deal.
One of life’s must-see movies has to be Paul Verhoeven’s Starship Troopers. It’s loaded with scenery-chewing, quotable quotes, thinly-veiled societal commentary, giant alien insects, and lots of goo. What’s not to like? Screen Junkies couldn’t agree more, and offers their sarcastic take on this brain-sucking classic.
“He used his lungs… to breathe in oxygen!” Elliot Mason presents a song about a totally ordinary guy doing totally ordinary things. Accompanied by a playful animation by Justin Mason, the silly lyrics remind us of the sort of thing Monty Python’s Flying Circus might have created. From the album Life Is Like a Movie.
Musician Martyn Stroud can usually be found playing the trombone or teaching students how to play one. He recently performed the notoriously tricky Flight of the Bumblebee using nothing but a plastic watering can and the mouthpiece from one of his brass instruments, for no other reason than a little backyard fun.
Designed by Lior Rokah Kor of housewares brand OTOTO, this festive yellow colander turns your fresh-cooked spaghetti into a flying spaghetti monster – like the one worshipped by Pastafarians. They also make a set of pasta monster servers which you can use in your own bowls. Made from dishwasher-safe BPA-free plastic.
(PG-13: Language) “Stir the sandwich… and slice the tea.” A woman answers her phone only to be met with demands from a mysterious caller lurking in the shed in her backyard. Francis Higgins and Viper Films poke fun at a classic horror film trope in this silly, but absolutely perfect little skit.
Now that the guys at Russia’s Garage 54 are done with their headlight-covered Lada, they decided to remove the bulbs from the compact car. Of course, now they’ve got a whole bunch of holes in the sheet metal, so they decided to go all-in on the look, resulting in a car that looks like a block of Swiss cheese on wheels.
When you’re working on construction projects, you could always use an extra hand. Developed by Createk, Université De Sherbrooke, and Exonetik this waist-mounted robot can do things like use a paint roller, squeegee, a gripper hand, or even a metal fist to break through walls. It’s all a bit silly looking if you ask us.
Did you know that killer whales have been known to eat deer, or that fluffy white clouds can weigh a million pounds? Author Shane Carley’s offbeat trivia book is filled with 500 strange things that sound like they were totally made up, but are factually correct.
Hey, kids! It’s time to go back in time. Let’s take a trip back to the 1990s for a supercut of movies and TV shows where characters were so in awe of the time they were living in, that they had to remind us what decade it was. Posted by Everything Is Terrible back at the beginning of the 2010s, which weren’t nearly as memorable.
There’s nothing quite like the smell of sizzling bacon in the morning (or anytime, really.) But what happens if you run out and don’t want to wait for Instacart to show up? Glennz’s tasty t-shirt design envisions a machine we totally want in our kitchen – a desktop machine that prints bacon strips on demand.
“Weird Al” Yankovic has already done a great send-up of the musical juggernaut Hamilton with “The Hamilton Polka.” As good as that is, we also love The Weird Alphabet’s parody, which is more of a prototypical novelty song, changing the lyrics to tell the origin story of the man behind “Another One Rides the Bus.”
