Zeppelin Zeerip’s offbeat short film owes more than a bit to the style of Wes Anderson, telling the story of a group of young men who head into the snowy mountains of Idaho in search of an elusive Hermit who escaped from an asylum. It’s an unexpected blend of winter sports action and quirky indie film tropes.
THE BEST Funny Stuff
Most cars only steer with their front wheels. But this strange three-wheeled vehicle turns all of its wheels whenever its driver turns its steering crank. It’s not as fancy as NASA’s Modular Robotic Vehicle but we’re pretty sure this guy’s build budget was substantially smaller. Original video by Douyin user wo583582429.
Sam Raimi’s original The Evil Dead movies were some of the most entertaining, goriest, and outlandish horror flicks of all time. Screen Junkies fondly looks back at The Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, and Army of Darkness as Ash takes on the Deadites with his boomstick and chainsaw hand. Groovy!
Oo-ohh, here he comes… Remixer DJ Cummerbund presents a love letter to Danny Devito’s “Man-Cheetah” from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia with a track that manages to blend Hall and Oates, The Strokes, The White Stripes, and Chris Isaak into a deliciously spicy bowl of musical gumbo.
Gear up for the holidays with Garud’s tactical Christmas stockings. Each one has lots of locations for hanging stocking stuffers both inside and out, with four rows of MOLLE webbing, hooks, and a zipper pouch on its side. Available in a variety of colors as well as camouflage patterns. Includes a removable Velcro US flag patch.
(PG-13: Language) Hydro-dipping is the process of adhering a film to the surface of an object by floating it in a bath of water and adding an activation agent. We’ve seen it done to shoes, guitars, and helmets, but the guys at Russia’s Garage 54 tried to dip an entire car. Unfortunately, even the best-laid plans can go very wrong.
Novelty band The Merkins celebrate the second season of The Mandalorian with a parody of the Guns N’ Roses track Sweet Child O’ Mine, with the lyrics rewritten to be about everyone’s favorite 50-year-old child, Baby Yoda. The lead vocals are spot-on thanks to special guest singer Alvi Robinson of the rock band The L.A. Maybe.
C4D4U seems to have an obsession with Tetris. A while back, the CG artist showed us what the game might look like with puzzle pieces made from Jell-O, and now we get to see what happens when those same pieces get moldy and covered with hair. They remind us of Sully from Monsters, Inc.
For those of us with an allergy, there are bigger fish to fry than eating raw or undercooked shellfish. But for everyone else, Dirty Coast and the Louisiana Shuckers Association suggest that you ignore that menu warning and dig in to enjoy all the raw oysters you can handle.
(PG-13) The groovy sounds of MYD and Mac DeMarco’s track Moving Men gets the perfect accompaniment in the form of this hilarious animated music video. Directed by Alexandre Nart, the clip takes us inside the everyday lives of a couple of pothead movers and the care with which they handle each and every item they move.
In the earliest days of moving pictures, filmmaking pioneers Auguste and Louis Lumière captured footage of a serious snowball throwdown on a city street. More recently, not.bw restored the original footage, bringing out detail and colorizing the wintry scene. Man, they really nailed that dude on the bicycle.
Sidney “Sid” Phillips was the neighborhood bully in Toy Story who got served his just desserts when he messed with Andy’s toys. This parody trailer by Poster Boys envisions what happened to Sid as he grew up, endlessly haunted by visions of Woody and his deformed toy pals.
There’s nothing like a peaceful autumn bike ride through the forest as colorful leaves fall around you. Illustrator Julian Glander’s lighthearted animated short for Adult Swim SMALLS starts out that way, then takes quite the unexpected turn about halfway through.
Autotuning vocals in music is pretty much played out. While humans have had their fill of the effect, animals haven’t used it quite as much. Cpt. Autotune has taken care of that for us, with a silly series of videos in which cats, dogs, cows, chickens, and other animals get their vocals digitally smoothed out.
Halloween is over, so now all the ghosts and ghouls are out there looking for something else to do. Buttered Side Down shares one of his ghostly encounters in his latest silly POV video, which starts out looking like a first-person version of the arcade game Paperboy, minus the bicycle.
Balancing your bicycle on one wheel is tricky enough, but removing the front tire in the middle of popping a wheelie is some next-level stuff. Freestyle rider Jake 100 proves he’s totally up to the challenge in this crazy stunt video. Check out more one-wheeled wheelie goodness here.
Beyond the addictive gameplay, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2’s best feature is its custom park creator tool, which has inspired some great fan-made levels. Skramblez put his world-building skills to the test with a skatepark that looks just like Peach’s Castle from Super Mario 64 – with a few extra rails, ramps, and pools.
Could you use an extra kid in the house? Caleb and Kegan’s incredibly bizarre clip from Adult Swim SMALLS offers up the most peculiar digital baby since the dancing baby meme. We wonder if they used a 3D printer instead of a 2D one if things would have turned out better.
As the girls of Camp Heebie Jeebie share their creepy ghost stories, things take a turn and their creations start to come to life. Animator Dylan Chase’s comedic horror short has some genuinely laugh-out-loud moments, along with exceptional character design and storytelling.
(PG-13: Language) Halloween is nearly here, and to celebrate, DJ Cummerbund is here to bring us some holiday cheer. Combining Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s WAP with Bobby “Boris” Pickett’s Monster Mash, and a dash of Elton John’s Crocodile Rock is something only a truly warped mind could come up with.
The 1991 Nirvana track Smells Like Teen Spirit is considered to be a classic by many. But we didn’t know it was this classic. The Miracle Aligner posted a cover of the breakout grunge hit with its lyrics translated into Latin. If you think that’s strange, try their ancient Norse cover of Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song.
When the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile turned up in Memphis, Tennessee, members of Opera Memphis decided to pay tribute to the iconic hot dog on wheels by singing a grand operatic rendition of the brand’s familiar jingle. That’s tenor Dane Suarez and baritone Jake Stamatis, conducted by Michael Sakir.
Retro software experts Squirrel Monkey look back a series of fictitious programs from the late 1980s that were designed to help people talk to the dead and predict the future.
