Pastry artist Lara Mason specializes in baking unusual and realistic cakes. If you’ve got a strange request, she’ll rise to the challenge, even if your idea involves an anatomically-correct bulldog named Dave in a captain’s uniform, or an upside-down Spider-Man hanging from his web.
Awesome Funny Stuff
It’s hard to believe it, but Conan O’Brien’s late-night TV career has drawn to a close. As part of the final festivities, Homer Simpson was brought in to conduct Conan’s exit interview for TBS. Surprisingly, it was way less awkward than that time Zach Galifianakis interviewed him on Between Two Ferns.
Joel Haver makes fun of what it’s like to pick up and start playing a role-playing video game that you haven’t played in a while. His observations on the mundane side quests and the NPCs are especially on-the-nose. Along the way, he worked in a few references to his previous game parody videos.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a car that ran on pedal power. But Life OD’s bike-powered Honda is among the silliest car mods we’ve ever seen. This ridiculous ride had its engine ripped out and replaced with a bicycle built for two cantilevered out of the hood. We’re gonna go out on a limb and guess it’s not street-legal.
Stone-faced musician Seth Everman is back at his synth with a performance of Nirvana’s 1991 classic Smells Like Teen Spirit done in a bunch of different styles. The steel drum version makes us want to lie on a beach sipping Piña Coladas while the sun beats down on us.
Did you know that Ed Sheeran’s Shape of You was the best-selling song of the 2010s? Nope? Us either. Comedians Adrian Gray and Archie Henderson presents what starts out as a serious reverse-chronological listing but quickly descends into madness as things take a wrong turn between Cher and The Bee Gees.
(Gore) We were glued to our screen for every minute of Invincible season one. Robert Kirkman’s animated series has great characters, amazing action, visceral violence, and packs an emotional punch. Still, Screen Junkies managed to find a few things to poke fun at, especially the protagonist’s tendency to over-apologize.
Rube Goldberg machine creator Joseph’s Machines came up with the best way to make pizza ever. The clever invention uses a model railroad engine to spin the pizza, while various other mechanisms layer on the ingredients. Now he just needs to figure out a way to move it into the oven.
We never could play Guitar Hero on Hard or Expert levels. Engineer Nick O’Hara has no such problems, thanks to the robot he built. Jon Bot Jovi uses AI and computer vision tech to detect the notes and timing, then triggers solenoids to push the guitar’s fret buttons and strum bar to perform even the most challenging tracks.
Any bicycle or motorcycle rider with a brain in their head knows that it’s worth protecting their noggin with a helmet. This funny public service announcement from the Danish Road Safety Council reminds us that even in the era of the Vikings, wearing a helmet was the right thing to do.
We didn’t have the patience to wait for the English translation of this Garage 54 video, because it’s too ridiculous to pass up. Stick around and you’ll see them replace the chassis of their see-through Lada with a wonky homemade platform and tall springs that lift the car’s body about 3 feet off the ground. Body roll, anyone?
There I Ruined It have outdone themselves, turning Eminem’s Without Me into a twangy bluegrass song that sounds like it could have been the theme to The Beverly Hillbillies or Hee-Haw. We suppose that’s what you get when you start your song with square dance instructions, Marshall.
Blink-182 is already the poppiest of pop-punk bands, but they sound even more bubbly in this synth pop cover version. Mick Mazz imagines what it would have been like if the band recorded All the Small Things sometime between 1985 and 1990, and used a lot more synthesizers.
Remember 8-bit fighting games like Karateka and International Karate? The members of dance/comedy troupe Fair Play Crew did a great job replicating the staccato movements of the characters in retro games like those. The fun starts at 1:07:17 on this Shanghai TV talent show.
Netflix offers up a completely inaccurate history lesson on the origins of the U.S., in which a foul-mouthed, chainsaw-wielding George Washington leads the founding fathers.

Award-winning director Sam Pilling and a very talented creative team pulled off this bonkers commercial for Winamax. After winning big on the online betting site, a man treats his mother to a first-class flight, only she doesn’t get in a cab and head to the airport, she takes the elevator.
The guys from How Ridiculous love to drop stuff from a height to see what happens to when it hits the bottom. But instead of just smashing things this time, they placed objects on one side of an airbag, then dropped weights onto the other side to see how high they could launch things.
A little while back, The Kiffness added music to that weird-sounding Alugalug Cat. When the video went viral, musicians around the world submitted their accompaniments to the tune, adding an unexpected amount of depth to what started out as a kitty sounding like he was about to cough up a hairball.
What did people do to share memes before the Internet? Heck, go back further to a time when the main method of broadcast communication was radio. Comedian Alasdair Beckett-King envisions what it might have been like if the BBC had to describe memes over the airwaves back in the 1940s.
