Jurassic Park on Rubber Chickens

Jurassic Park on Rubber Chickens

Because absolutely nobody asked for it, The Critters created a Rube Goldberg machine that plays the main theme from Jurassic Park using precisely placed rubber chickens and bowling balls. Yes, we know they almost certainly did it with CGI, but it’s still hilariously weird.

Ever wish clown-shoes could pass as streetwear? Larger-than-life DJ, designer, and funny guy Kerwin Frost believes more is more, so designed big-ass shoes that look five sizes bigger than their actual size. Superstuffed sneakers are padded to fit the wearer’s foot but look like classic adidas Superstars with a glandular issue.

Thieves at the Gym

Thieves at the Gym

If you’re going to commit crimes, you probably should be in pretty good shape. This silly video from Vlog Creations imagines how burglars, purse-snatchers, bank robbers, and other thieves might get their reps in at the gym. The staircase sneak was our favorite exercise.

Yodeling Triple-Threat

Yodeling Triple-Threat

Now here’s something you don’t see every day… a guy playing the accordion, yodeling as fast as humanly possible, and smoking a cigarette at the same time. We’d only wish we could have been there to see the performance in person while we glugged down a giant stein of beer.

Mechanical Keyboard Sounds

Mechanical Keyboard Sounds

Virtually every word written on this website is composed on a clicky mechanical keyboard. If you love the sound of clicky keys too, then take a listen to Mechanical Keyboard Sounds: Recordings of Bespoke and Customized Mechanical Keyboards, an album by Taeha Types and Trunk Records, demonstrated here by LGR Blerbs.

You’ve seen the memes, now see the whole collection of Steven Rhodes’ parody children’s book covers.

Army Man Wine Bottle Holder

Ready! Aim! Fire! Unless you’re launching a champagne cork, these are not typically words associated with drinking wine. But that’s not the case with this whimsical wine bottle holder, which looks like an oversize green army man. Set your bottle into the brackets, and it instantly becomes a bazooka. Made from cast polyresin.

Making Tea with a Semi

Making Tea with a Semi

It’s tricky enough to back up an 18-wheeler in a straight line, but truck driver Niall Reid is a show-off. Not only did he roll his truck wheels backward without hitting the teacup on the ground, but he also used its hydraulic suspension to dip a tea bag into it for his afternoon break.

How Soon Is the Jungle?

How Soon Is the Jungle?

If Morrissey sang the Guns ‘N Roses track Welcome to the Jungle and Johnny Marr played the guitar part like he did on How Soon Is Now? it might sound something like this cover by by Good Future. If you enjoyed that, check out his version of Justin Bieber’s “Peaches” by The Strokes.

Guy Who Is About to Die in a Movie

Guy Who Is About to Die in a Movie

Every once in a while, a movie will surprise us with who they kill off. But more often than not, it’s some bit player who you’ve never seen before, wandering around alone and dreaming about their future. Alasdair Beckett-King pokes fun at this common cliché in movie scenes, made famous by Star Trek’s Redshirts.

Dunkey: Video Game Pricing

Dunkey: Video Game Pricing

(PG-13: Language) Game consoles and video games have always been expensive – especially when you adjust for inflation. VideoGameDunkey looks back at the history of game pricing, how we got to the $60 price tag for AAA titles, how “free to play” games are anything but, and the wonders of Xbox Game Pass.

The Human Catapult

The Human Catapult

Launching watermelons from a catapult sounds like a lot of fun, but launching humans seems like a terrible idea. The guys from TKOR teamed up with Jake Makes to build a catapult with a tub at one end that can fire a person into the air. At least they aimed it at a deep pond. Needless to say, don’t try anything like this at home.

Nestflix

Nestflix

TV shows and movies sometimes make reference to fake shows on background screens or in dialogue. Designer Lynn Fisher cataloged over 400 of these shows within shows on Nestflix, which includes such gems as 30 Rock’s The Rural Juror, Sunrise Bay from Schitt’s Creek, and Angels with Filthy Souls from Home Alone.

The Overused Gasp

The Overused Gasp

(PG-13: Language) The Wilhelm Scream is known as one of the most overused sound effects in the history of movies and TV. While this sound effect of an audience gasping has yet to catch up with old Wilhelm, it definitely has been used way too many times. There’s a full list of its uses on the Sound Effects Wiki.

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.

Bench

Bench

Professional animator Rich Webber’s stop-motion short is “a film about sharing.” The story of two strangers on a park bench serves as a standalone comedic film with a great punchline but works on another level, satirizing the relationship between society’s haves and have-nots.

Automatic Hair Scissors

Automatic Hair Scissors

If you’re not careful, you can cut yourself while trimming hair with scissors. But in the case of these automatic shears made by Joel Creates, you’re practically guaranteed that you’ll draw blood. He then gave the terrifying motorized scissors to a hairdresser to see how they worked in the hands of a professional.

The World’s Largest Cap Gun

The World’s Largest Cap Gun

(PG-13: Language) Playing with toy cap guns is a rite of passage for many kids. Their impact-sensitive explosives make quite the racket at normal size, so imagine how loud a 5-foot-tall cap gun might sound. Builder Nick O’Hara shows how he designed and built his giant noisemaker, then used it to scare the crap out of his pals.

Nintendo Consoles A Cappella

Nintendo Consoles A Cappella

Nintendo fanboys and fangirls will get a kick out of this medley of console startup music performed by Korean a cappella group MayTree. Nintendo consoles always have had great music, but the GameCube theme is still our favorite.

Your Jumpin’ Heart

Your Jumpin’ Heart

We can’t decide if Bill McClintock’s Van Halen-Hank Williams musical mashup belongs on There I Ruined It or if it’s the work of a mad genius. You’ll never hear Jump the same way again after you hear it turned into the twangy country ballad Your Cheatin’ Heart. Imagine if Eddie Van Halen played the slide guitar.

We’re going to need a bigger eraser. This shark-shaped sharpener (sharkener?) is ready to chomp down on your pencils and give them a nice point that’s as sharp as a great white’s tooth. We don’t recommend attempting this with an actual shark.

Every Tech CEO

Every Tech CEO

Over the years, we’ve seen way too many self-important product videos from companies like Apple and Microsoft. Joma Tech pokes fun at tech CEO swagger by hyping something as mundane as a set of overpriced window blinds. The back half of the video is a little treat for anyone who has ever worked for a tech startup.

Yoda Speaking Normally

Yoda Speaking Normally

Star Wars fans know that Yoda has a particular way of speaking English – puts verbs at the end of sentences he does. Chewie’s Meme Town wondered what it might be like if Yoda spoke like the rest of us, and the resulting dialogue does not compute in our brains.

Big Bus Tows Little Bus

Big Bus Tows Little Bus

What do you do when you need to transport a school bus across a dry lake bed? You tow it with a bigger bus, naturally. That’s what the guys from DieselSellerz did with their red-white-and-blue “Freedom Bus” which dwarfed the little yellow school bus bringing up the rear.

Robot Arm Basketball

Robot Arm Basketball

Want to play some basketball, but don’t have a court to play on? The Q came up with a version of the game you can play on a tabletop. Players each control a cable-driven robot arm to pick up mini basketballs and drop them through their opponent’s hoop. It’s not as slick as Toyota’s robot, but it’s a lot cheaper.

Your Crime Days Are Over

Your Crime Days Are Over

It’s a common trope in video games and action movies – the protagonist drops in on the big bad guy in their lair and tells them their days of perpetrating misdeeds are over. But in Joel Haver’s amusing take on this cliché, it turns out not all is what it seems between the crime lord and his companion.
