The Mullet Whistler

The Mullet Whistler

We can’t decide what’s best about this video. Is it the insane whistling skills? The guy’s hairdo? His mustache? Or the reaction of the children in the audience? Whatever you choose, it’s internet gold.

Lil’ Rapper

Lil’ Rapper

If you liked listening to the talking twin babies, put your hands up for 2-year old MC Khaliyl Iloyi as he practices his freestyle flow. Sure, it’s gibberish, but it’s rhythmic gibberish.

Tough Mudder

An insanely difficult and grueling 10+ mile obstacle course designed by British Special Forces – only for those with balls of steel and the will to finish. Funds raised benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

Finger Taekwondo

Combining taekwondo with street dancing is out of our league, but we’re pretty confident we can get a black belt in finger taekwondo in no time at all. Now where can we get one of those hand gi?

Who the hell is this guy, and why haven’t we heard of him before now? We’ve never seen a guy wearing a hat like that make so much sweet noise, all while sitting in an office chair.

Vimeo user warthox is able to put on quite a show with his Quad MultiWiiCopter and its new MT2208 motors. The buzzing sounds like a pissed-off horde of robot bees… and we love it.

School Portrait

School Portrait

A douchebag tries to infect kids with his cynicism. This short film by Nick Scott is as straightforward as it gets, but it’s worth watching for one reason: that young girl and her invincible smile.
