Last Dictator Standing

Last Dictator Standing

Chicken x politics: Dean Blumberg’s ad for South African restaurant chain Nando’s parodies the remaining dictators left in the world; it entertains and leaves you thinking too. (Thanks Ange!)

The crew of a German U-Boat struggle to survive deep below the sea, as they encounter unlikely and unusual obstacles in this amusing short film from students of New Zealand’s Media Design School.

Laserman: Derezzed

Laserman: Derezzed

The master of lasers works his light-bending magic in Disneyland’s ElecTRONica. We love the part where he “picks up” the laser beams and twirls them like batons. How do you do that again?

Hudson: Against the Grain

Hudson: Against the Grain

The music video for Against the Grain by indie folk artist Hudson. Made by Dropbear, the stop motion animation complements the song’s hopeful lyrics. A simple idea wonderfully executed.

Wheelchair Parkour

Wheelchair Parkour

This isn’t what you were expecting, but it does a great job of getting its point across: the lack of wheelchair-friendly sidewalks makes daily commute a stunt for wheelchair-bound people.

Bride Drum Solo

Bride Drum Solo

Professional drummer and percussionist Suzanne Morissette breaks into a wicked drum solo while playing with the wedding band at her own wedding’s reception. Bobby, the groom, played the keyboard.

Phantom Cocktails

Phantom Cocktails

What do you get when you combine cocktails, great lighting, the Beastie Boys and some 5000 fps Phantom slo-mo camera shots? Something pretty special, in our humble opinion. (Thanks Ty!)

It’s Time

It’s Time

A campaign video by GetUp! Australia. It’s sad that this obvious fact still needs to be defended and pointed out, but here it is. Don’t stand in the way of people who just want to love and be loved.

Glove & Boots & Rock Band

Glove & Boots & Rock Band

Mario, Fafa and Gorilla load up a copy of Rock Band and attempt the play Iron Maiden’s finger-blistering Run to the Hills. Needless to say, things don’t go quite as planned.

Aliens on Ice

Aliens on Ice

(NSFW: Language) Austin’s Old Murder House Theatre performs classic scenes from the Alien movies – while wearing ice skates. Finally, a reason to return to the theater. More scenes here.

Man vs. Polar Bears

Man vs. Polar Bears

What do you do when you’ve got three polar bears coming at you? You could run the other way, or you could have cojones the size of bowling balls and chase them off with a big bone.

Going Gorillas

Going Gorillas

Last October, the gorilla enclosure at the Werribee Open Range Zoo in Australia was tested out by… two guys in gorilla suits. Visitors were treated to an unbelievable display of fake gorilla behavior.

Sand Vibration Art

Sand Vibration Art

Watch as musician Kenichi Kanazawa turns vibrations on a table covered with colored sand into an interactive work of art as it hits its resonant frequency. See more patterns emerge here.

The Sword Maker

Korehira Watanabe is a swordsmith, a dying breed of craftsmen. He has dedicated his life to his profession and passion and desperately hopes that the art of sword making will continue to live on.

Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto!

Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto!

Japanese “technicolor pogo punkers” Polysics take on the Styx classic Mr. Roboto in this goofy music video, which not only made us chuckle, but improves on the original tune – if that’s possible.

The Sith Who Stole Christmas

The Sith Who Stole Christmas

We’ve never heard Darth Vader described as “a bad banana with a greasy black peel,” but One Minute Galactica’s mashup of Dr. Seuss’s holiday classic with scenes of the Dark Lord fits perfectly.

Dancing Queen

Dancing Queen

While she’s not quite as coordinated as OK Go once was, you still have got to hand it to this woman for her treadmill dance skills. She certainly makes moonwalking look more achievable.

Top Gear: Trains

Top Gear: Trains

The Top Gear guys leave the pavement and hit the rails, as they take their ridiculous car-powered trains (and distinguished passengers) on a ride down the tracks. Catch part two for the grand finale.

International Trick Shot Battle

International Trick Shot Battle

Trick shot master Brodie Smith and pals take on their frisbee and ball tossing counterparts Down Under. Contrary to what you might think, they don’t throw in the opposite direction as us.

Bike Wheel Zoetrope

Bike Wheel Zoetrope

Katy Beveridge wanted to know if it was possible to create a zoetrope-style animation effect and capture it on a rotating bicycle wheel as the bike is in motion. The answer: a resounding yes.

Cat Goes for a Drive

Cat Goes for a Drive

Try as it might, this Roomba can’t shake the cat going for a ride on its back. Our cat would go flying across the room the second this thing moved, but this cat seems happy to have a chauffeur.

Fiji Vignette

Fiji Vignette

Watching Riley Blakeway’s footage of Taj Burrow and Jay Davies surfing off the coast of Fiji is like injecting cold water and sunshine directly into our eyes. The song is Frequency by Unouomedude.

Brush With Death

Brush With Death

Corridor Digital continues to knock it out of the park with their action and effect-filled short films. Their latest clip perfectly blends the unlikely pairing of graffiti with street fighting.

Ormie

Ormie

Gather the young ones and finish off your Turkey leftovers while watching Ormie the pig try to get his hands on a jar of cookies. A healthy dose of slapstick from Rob Silvestri and Arc Productions.
