Wordle in the 1980s

Wordle in the 1980s

Like many of you, we’ve played Wordle almost every day since it broke out. Squirrel Monkey imagines what the hit word game might have been like if it came out in the 1980s and ran on an MS-DOS-based PC. You’ll also need a dot-matrix printer if you want to share your score.

The Burrito Bumper

The Burrito Bumper

Despite the name of his channel, Matty Benedetto’s Unnecessary Inventions occasionally does create something we could use. His Burrito Bumper is one such item. Pre-load its base with a tortilla, place its funnel beneath your chin, and any time you spill burrito ingredients, they end up inside the taco. Second course served!

Hot Wheels Portable Nintendo Switch Dock Backpack

Hot Wheels Portable Nintendo Switch Dock Backpack

In 2017, Mattel wanted to get in on the Nintendo Switch craze and created a limited-edition backpack that made the handheld console no longer handheld.

Act like a real fat cat with these $100 bill cocktail napkins from Fred. Pass them out to all of your guests, and by the end of the night, your fat stacks of cash will be reduced to a pile of crumpled-up paper covered with food, drink, and lipstick stains. Toss some into the fireplace for added effect.

Chuck Norris vs. Spartan Warriors

Chuck Norris vs. Spartan Warriors

When it comes to badassery, Chuck Norris is on many top 10 lists.

DIY Ducky Bagpipe

DIY Ducky Bagpipe

As we’ve seen before, inventor Nicolas Bras loves to make unique musical instruments. His latest instrument is one of the sillier ones we’ve seen. He created an improvised bagpipe by attaching his PVC pipe clarinets and a kid-sized duck pool float. It doesn’t sound much like the traditional Scottish instrument, nor does it quack like a duck.

Bending Water in a Blow-up Pool

Bending Water in a Blow-up Pool

When it comes to inflatable pools, we try to keep water inside the pool to avoid refilling them for as long as possible. But this guy doesn’t care if he loses a little H2O. Using his body, a pool float, and his knowledge of fluid dynamics, he makes the surrounding water bend to his whim.

Cheeseburger, Hold the Pickles

Cheeseburger, Hold the Pickles

Spinning a cheeseburger on an umbrella sounds like a ridiculous and unnecessary endeavor. But after watching juggler Michael Rayner balance one on edge, spin it around, and separate its pickles, we’re all for the concept. The only thing better than this video is watching it at 5x speed.

The Drama of Microsoft Excel

The Drama of Microsoft Excel

“My spreadsheet doesn’t do that!” This 1992 promo spot for Microsoft Excel 4.0 seems like it was directed and performed by a team that wished they were doing more meaningful work. Instead, they ended up pimping the ubiquitous productivity software with a level of gravitas typically reserved for serious TV dramas.

Staying Alive Minus Bee Gees

Staying Alive Minus Bee Gees

The movies Saturday Night Fever and its sequel Staying Alive are so indelibly intertwined with the music of the Bee Gees that we can’t imagine them any other way. But the guys at Auralnauts like to subvert expectations, so they edited John Travolta’s big strut scene at the end of the movie, removing the trio’s trademark disco sound.

Paper Rain

Paper Rain

To celebrate the end of the school year, Basha High School in Chandler, AZ has a ceremonial Paper Toss, where graduating Seniors take all of their papers from the past four years and drop them down the stairs. If this video proves anything, it’s that we’re using way too much paper when everything could be digital.

Drawing with a Thorny Pencil

Drawing with a Thorny Pencil

Artist DP Truong is always coming up with clever and different ways to draw portraits. This time out, they just used a pencil, but the trick is that it was covered with thorns on every side, making it incredibly difficult to grip and sharpen without causing pain.

If you’re perpetually running late, why bother with a watch that tells the time? This fun wristwatch from Wumbo Ventures has no hands or digits, just a tiny pool filled with rubber duckies and a splashy bubble. They have magnetic backsides so that you can rearrange them in the water. There’s also a Devil Duck version.

George Carlin’s Thomas the Tank Engine

Moon Knight with Lightsabers

Moon Knight with Lightsabers

You know what makes any fight sequence better? Lightsabers, naturally. ActiveSufi took one of the great action sequences from the Disney+ series Moon Knight and upgraded our hero’s weapons with plasma power. Is Oscar Isaac the key to unlocking a Star Wars/Marvel crossover universe? (Thanks, Rob!)

Zoom Pants Filter

Zoom Pants Filter

Attending Zoom calls without pants is a common occurrence. It’s fine if you stay put, but you run the risk of exposure if you move around. Fletcher at Everything Is Hacked has the solution. He used OpenCV, MediaPipe, and pyvirtualcam to create a video filter that adds pants or blurs your naughty bits if you’re letting it all hang out.

The First Couple to Ever Move in Together

The First Couple to Ever Move in Together

“You know what I think is missing from this relationship? House chores.” The idea of moving in with someone might sound good in concept, but reality can be a lot less awesome. Ryan George and Julie Nolke remind us what living together is really like in this hilarious and relatable comedy sketch. And then there’s getting married.

MST3K Season 13 (Trailer)

MST3K Season 13 (Trailer)

Will Mystery Science Theater 3000 ever run out of bad movies to scoff at? Nope. MST3K returns for its 13th season, this time with three snarky humans suffering through the cheesy F-movie dreck on the big screen: Kinga Forrester (Felicia Day), loyal henchman Max (Patton Oswalt), and grandmother Pearl Forrester (Mary Jo Pehl).

Living in 3rd Person

Living in 3rd Person

Video games that play in a 3rd-person perspective help you understand your place within the world and let you see what your character looks like. With the help of a video rig and VR goggles, Ryan Trahan lived his own life from a 3rd-person view – and he did it for two days. We probably would have thrown up after 20 minutes.

Cat Scratch Skateboard

Stop your cat from clawing up your couch, and train them to do a 360 Varial Kickflip instead. While we’re not certain that SuckUK’s skateboard cat scratcher will turn your kitty into the next Tony Hawk or Bob Burnquist, it should keep their claws trimmed and their desire to destroy your furniture to a minimum.

Honest The Batman Trailer

Honest The Batman Trailer

“He’s ready to put the ‘goth’ back in ‘Gotham.” Screen Junkies takes on the literally darkest of the Dark Knight’s movies with an Honest Trailer for The Batman. Along the way, they critique Bruce Wayne’s detective skills, Riddler’s fashion choices, Colin Farrell’s looks, and the movie’s 2-hour 56-minute runtime.

The Terrifying Mr. Potato Head

The Terrifying Mr. Potato Head

Since the 1960s, Mr. Potato Head toys have come with a fake potato body made of plastic. But when they first came out in the 1950s, they were strictly bring-your-own tuber. Vintage TV Commercials dug up this 1952 Hasbro promo that shows just how creepy and weird looking the original Potato Heads could be.

Adam West Is THE Batman

Adam West Is THE Batman

Robert Pattinson’s take on Batman was pretty great. But in our hearts, the One True Batman will always be Adam West, whose colorful version of Gotham’s hero gave us classics like “Some days you just can’t get rid of a bomb.” Thanks to the VFX wizards at Corridor, 1960s Batman is back, deepfaked into Matt Reeves’ The Batman.
