Launching Stuff from an Air Blob

Launching Stuff from an Air Blob

Alugalug Cat: International Symphonic Edition

Alugalug Cat: International Symphonic Edition

A little while back, The Kiffness added music to that weird-sounding Alugalug Cat.

Memes on the Radio

Memes on the Radio

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.

How to Make Vintage Photos

(PG-13: Language) Do you want to know how to make your photographs look old-timey? Well, Aussie comedian Sam Campbell’s tutorial probably won’t help you much – especially because it requires the worst piece of 1990s photo editing software we’ve ever seen.

In Far Cry 6, you’ll be able to craft weapons from junk. Among the possibilities is a gun that fires CDs as projectiles. The guys over at Hacksmith Industries teamed up with UbiSoft to build a real-world replica of the dangerous device and finally gives us a use for all of those old AOL CD-ROMs.

More Dark Disney Origin Stories

With Cruella offering a dark origin story for the 101 Dalmatians villainess, Disney might give us more of the same.

Bat Out of Hell on Banjolele

Bat Out of Hell on Banjolele

“There’s evil in the air and there’s thunder in the sky, and a killer’s on the bloodshot streets.” These are not exactly the lyrics that you’d think would pair with a guy wearing a bowtie, a vest, and a flat cap, but Thomas Benjamin Wild Esq brings his own flair to a Meat Loaf classic with a cover performed on his banjo/ukulele hybrid.

How Nintendo Makes Game Sounds

How Nintendo Makes Game Sounds

Beyond the It’sa Me Mario!, you have to admit that the sounds in Nintendo’s 1st-party games are often pretty silly. Comedian Gus Johnson takes a stab at envisioning exactly how they came up with all those sounds in the recording studio.

Honest DCEU Trailer

Honest DCEU Trailer

To celebrate their 400th Honest Trailer, Screen Junkies takes on not one or two movies, but the entire DC Extended Universe – a series of questionably dark and brooding superhero movies that started with 2013’s Man of Steel. Despite their many flaws, we still keep coming back for more.

Silly Guinness Speed Records

Silly Guinness Speed Records

Guinness World Records teamed up with Anker to present a series of unusual record-breaking attempts.

Sneeze Cat x The Kiffness

Sneeze Cat x The Kiffness

The Kiffness seems to have found a new niche – turning videos of unusual cat behavior into music. After amusing us with his Alugalug Cat remix, he’s back with a remake of The Weeknd’s Blinding Lights accompanied by Sneeze Cat. Seriously, would somebody get this kitty a Zyrtec?

The Battle of SHARKS!

The Battle of SHARKS!

Not one to ignore something so unusual, he decided to dig into the backstory of this floating artwork and discovered the piece has been mired in a battle between artists, bureaucrats, and conservationists.

Leaving on a Grunge Plane

Leaving on a Grunge Plane

There I Ruined It manages to destroy two songs at the same time, turning John Denver’s (and later Peter, Paul, and Mary’s) folk classic Leaving on a Jet Plane into Nirvana’s Heart-Shaped Box. Or is it the other way around? Honestly, you can ruin any song in seconds just by adding a slide whistle.

Wheel of Springs

Wheel of Springs

Normally, a vehicle’s suspension sits between the frame and the wheels to absorb shocks. After seeing a vintage photograph of a car wheel with springs built into it, the car hackers at Garage 54 built their own to see how it would affect ride quality. It sounded like a busted shopping cart after the rubber came off.

In case you’re unfamiliar with Device Orchestra, they’re a band made up out of electronic gadgets and appliances.

When You Don’t Skip the Ads

When You Don’t Skip the Ads

We know they help support content creators, but we’re as guilty as anyone of skipping the ads on YouTube after five seconds. But what exactly happens after that point in the pre-roll? Comedy Central’s truly warped video delves into the mystery of what lies beyond. And no, you can’t click “Skip Ad” no matter how hard you try.

Teddy Bear Roller Coaster

Teddy Bear Roller Coaster

Normally, when you aim a video camera towards the passengers on a rollercoaster, you hear screams or at least see some expressions on the rider’s faces. The same can’t be said when all of your ride’s occupants are teddy bears, like in this cute and soothing clip from the Walibi Holland amusement park.

Anti-Sleep Study Chair

Anti-Sleep Study Chair

We’ve really been enjoying the wacky inventions on Handy Geng’s YouTube channel. Among them is this metal chair that ensures whoever sits in it won’t fall asleep.
