Awesome Funny Stuff

“Ever since Metallica cut their hair, they’ve been bad.” A narrow-minded, politically incorrect broadcaster sits in his trailer, ranting about various issues and taking credit for all of The Smashing Pumpkins’ hits in this hilarious animated short by Joe Bennett and Conner O’ Malley.

Tug of Oar

Tug of Oar

This high-energy sport combines the physicality of rowing and a tug of war competition in one. Watch as two teams go head-to-head in a swimming pool to see who can pull the other team across the center line by rowing backward.

Adult Swim Original Promos

Adult Swim Original Promos

If you can believe it, September 2021 marks the 20th anniversary of Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. To celebrate the occasion, here’s a compilation of the original promo segues that ran between shows on the late-night animation block. Soon enough, that’ll be us swimming with the old folks in the pool.

Doc Ocktoberfest T-Shirt

When he’s not climbing buildings or battling Spider-Man with them, what does Doc Ock do with those extra tentacles? Well, when he’s in Germany, he dresses up in lederhosen and enjoys a couple of steins of cold beer. Prost!

The JiffyFlosser

The JiffyFlosser

Tired of flossing your teeth one at a time? Well, Unnecessary Inventions has the solution, a gadget which can floss all of your teeth at once. While it was designed as a joke, we could totally see someone selling such a device. Though we imagine reloading the floss would take way more time than just flossing normally.

Beastie Boys Welcome Mat

Beastie Boys Welcome Mat

Before visitors reach your doorbell, get right to the point with the original Beastie Boys welcome mat by Happy Matz. The flocked coir mat asks the musical question “So, what‘cha, what’cha, what’cha want?” Or opt for another Beasties lyric for frequent deliveries: “mmmmm… DROP (unless it says fragile).”

Turbine Umbrella Hat

Turbine Umbrella Hat

Maker Ivan Miranda lives in a beautiful place in Spain. But he hates when it rains there, and he doesn’t like carrying an umbrella. So he set about the task of engineering a motorized helmet that uses a powerful motor and a turbine to blow the rain away from his body. And yes, it works in real rain.

The Wall Fall Clock

The Wall Fall Clock

A young engineer named Burke McGabe got it in his head to build something totally unnecessary but nonetheless entertaining. What looks like an ordinary wall clock is designed to automatically fall off the wall any time he looks at it to check the time. It’s seen better days after all of its crashes.

Vent Dragons

What strange beasts dwell within your home? It turns out not just dust mites, but there be dragons among us. Sculptor David Lee Pancake makes these wall hangings that look like dragons are trying to crawl out of your HVAC system. The two little dragons inside have light-up eyes, so they look extra creepy at night.

Another One Bites the Tequila

Another One Bites the Tequila

Because truly nothing is sacred to the warped minds behind There I Ruined It, here’s a version of Queen’s Another One Bites the Dust, mashed up with The Champs’ 1958 hit track Tequila, also known as Pee-Wee Herman’s favorite dance song. Clearly, much tequila was consumed when they came up with this idea.

Anime Rick Roll

Anime Rick Roll

We’ve heard Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up at least 1000 times. But this version posted by Christya mixes things up by transforming Rick’s sound into something straight out of a Japanese anime, minus the actual animation. Vocals by MOM0KI, annapantsu, LilyPichu, and LizzRobinett

Closing the Pool

Closing the Pool

One of the challenges with swimming pools is what to do when you’re done with them for the day. You could put a pool cover over the top, or you could do what Sons of Metallerie did, and build an entire outdoor lounge that slides over the pool when it’s not in use. Here’s the view from the seats.

3D-Printed Cat Helmets

3D-Printed Cat Helmets

Rémy Vicarini likes to make tiny helmets for his cat Cathode. His collection of 3D-printed headgear includes a bicycle helmet, an astronaut helmet, and a LEGO knight helmet. We also have no idea how Cathode sat still for the working Iron Man helmet. Good kitty.

The Teletubby Tidal Wave

The Teletubby Tidal Wave

After building an organ out of Furbies and an orchestra out of LEGO, musical hacker Look Mum No Computer has unveiled his latest creation, an army of interconnected Teletubbies who wiggle and giggle in sync thanks to a custom controller system. The sound of 30 Pos and LaLas is just as annoying as you might imagine.

How to Make a Netflix Documentary About Anything

How to Make a Netflix Documentary About Anything

From cooking to crime, Netflix is filled with intriguing documentaries about all kinds of subjects. Paul E.T. shows how you can easily make a Netflix-style documentary about any subject with just a few basic photography tools, some stock footage, and basic editing skills.

The Dune Song

The Dune Song

“Warner’s wouldn’t send a screener… so I’ve only seen the trailer.” Sweetlegs presents a rap song about Denis Villeneuve’s much-anticipated and frequently-delayed adaptation of Dune, and reminds us that fear is the mind-killer when it comes to trying to figure out if it’s going to be good or not before it comes out.

Y.M.C.A.: Sad Edition

Y.M.C.A.: Sad Edition

The Village People’s 1978 hit Y.M.C.A. has long outlived its disco origins, morphing into a crowd favorite at sporting events and parties, as people make letters with their arms. While the original was happy and upbeat, Melodicka Bros.’ cover version is anything but, transforming the track into a sad and introspective ballad.

Humankind Moon Landing Commercial

Humankind Moon Landing Commercial

We couldn’t help but think of the Apple TV+ series For All Mankind when we saw this excellent commercial featuring two astronauts competing to be first to plant their nation’s flag on the Moon. The spot was directed by Edouard Salier for Wanda to promote SEGA’s civilization-building game Humankind.

The Un-Toaster

The Un-Toaster

Don’t you sometimes wish there was an “Undo” key for life’s mistakes? While this invention from Joel Creates doesn’t reverse any major tragedies, it is capable of un-toasting bread that you didn’t mean to toast. It’s more of a bread rehydrator than a toast time-travel machine though.

My Prius

My Prius

(PG-13: Lyrics) Musicians Tom McGovern and A. Rob present a rap song about living large while watching their carbon footprints and saving gas money so they can spend it on gold chains. My Prius celebrates Toyota’s fuel-sipping hybrid, and extolls the benefits it affords its owners.

The Disney+ Song

The Disney+ Song

We were just saying the other day how much we love Disney+ and how it’s our favorite streaming service. Between its catalog of Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars content, there’s something for everyone. But as elpinko, frizfrizzle, and Sebastian the Crab explain, there’s one franchise you just won’t find on the network.

Snacking Tortoise ASMR

Snacking Tortoise ASMR

The Animal ASMR channel has cornered the market on recording close-ups of turtles and guinea pigs snacking on food. Among their many similar video clips is this adorable and relaxing recording of a tortoise chomping down on a strawberry, a blueberry, pumpkin, and broccoli. Crunch crunch crunch.

Spider-Man: No Way Home as a 90s Cartoon

Spider-Man: No Way Home as a 90s Cartoon

100Bombs Studios dusted off footage from the 1990s Spider-Man animated series and edited it to match the audio from the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer. Using scenes between Spidey, Doctor Strange, and Doc Ock, it syncs up surprisingly well.

Sweet Dreams on Devices

Sweet Dreams on Devices

The hacked appliances of Device Orchestra have reached the promised land with a performance of the song that the band was destined for, the synth-heavy Eurythmics classic Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This). Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart may have been replaced by electric toothbrushes, but who are we to disagree?

Every Sport a Bowling Ball

Every Sport a Bowling Ball

Writer-director Sam H. Buchanan’s amusing short film imagines what it would be like if sports like golf, tennis, and billiards were played with a bowling ball instead of their normal game balls. Naturally, the added weight and mass make things a little more difficult, though it could make ice hockey even more exciting.

John Mayer Slayer

John Mayer Slayer

From the warped mind of Andy Rehfeldt comes a collaboration we never knew we wanted until now, with John Mayer on vocals, backed by the speed metal guitar sounds of Slayer. We’re not sure how it works, but the lyrics from Mayer’s Carry Me Away just seem to fit perfectly.
