Bridge

Bridge

A short animated film by Ting Tey puts wild animals on a single narrow bridge, with no way to cross. As it progresses, it teaches a little tale about stubbornness, pride and (eventually) compromise.

Storm Origins

Storm Origins

(NSFW: Lyrics) Freerunning gets as much plot as it can in this acrobatic short film. Ok, so jumping off of walls and rails isn’t really a story, but it’s still way cool – especially on fire. (Thanks, Ian!)

Robot Goalie

Robot Goalie

There’s no getting a soccer (or foot) ball past this guy. That’s because it’s Robokeeper, a goal tender with lightning-fast reflexes that never misses a ball. Guess it’s time for a Robokicker. Or Robocop.

Dubstep Guns

Dubstep Guns

The Dubstep sound is getting played out, but slather it on top of an ample helping of plasma weapons and VFX and we’ll crank our speakers up to 11 anyhow. Nice finishing move at the end there.

Tom Waits x Cookie Monster

Tom Waits x Cookie Monster

If you’ve ever thought that Tom Waits sounds a little like Cookie Monster, what with that raspy baritone growl, you’d be 100% correct. Mashups don’t get much better than this.

Surreality

Surreality

We’re truly grateful for the conveniences of modern urban life. But it does leave us disconnected and overwhelmed sometimes, as shown in this short film directed by Falko Tilgner.

The Queueing Theory

The Queueing Theory

Bill Hammack explains why it’s better to have one line for multiple checkout lanes than a line per cashier, and why in the case of the latter the grass is indeed (often) greener on the other side.

Checkerboard Optical Illusion

Checkerboard Optical Illusion

We know this is a basic optical illusion, but seeing it brought to life in 3-dimensions by brusspup still makes our heads hurt trying to figure out why our eyeballs see two different shades of grey.

In the Fall

In the Fall

There is nothing new or innovative in this animated short by Steve Cutts, from the first shot to the concept itself. But the bittersweet introspection that it induces in the viewer makes it special.

Our Daily Bread

Our Daily Bread

Directed by Nikolaus Geyrhalter, Unser Täglich Brot is about the fast, efficient and mass-producing world of modern agriculture, presenting arresting footage devoid of commentary.

Ninja House Tour

Ninja House Tour

We thought they lived in the shadows, but it seems like the ninjas of ancient Japan also had houses. It’s just like how you’d expect a ninja house would be, filled with traps and hidden stuff.

Anne Hathaway’s Paparazzi Rap

Anne Hathaway’s Paparazzi Rap

Check out the demure Anne Hathaway smoking the paparazzi in her hilarious Lil’ Wayne style rap song when she recently was a guest on Conan. We think we like her even more now. (Thanks, everyone!)

Epic Meat Shield

Epic Meat Shield

EpicMealTime really has hit the big time. First the cameo in Gymkhana 4, now they’re promoting Gears of War 3 by making a literal meat shield. The delicious armor was tested by FPSRussia.

Movie Line Rhymes

Movie Line Rhymes

We can’t imagine how much time Screen Werks’ Jordan Laws put into making the rhymes in this movie line mashup sound so natural against that funky little ditty stringing them all together.

Gollum Ringbearer

Gollum Ringbearer

Confused? This is from the Australian show Four Weddings, where brides attend each other’s weddings and rate them for a chance at a luxury honeymoon. They edited out the riddle game.

Television Credits

Television Credits

(NSFW: Language) David Mitchell rants about the chaotic assault of stimuli at the end of TV shows: credit roll + voice over + scenes from next episode + banner announcing the next show…

Brokeback About Nothing

Brokeback About Nothing

Seinfeld was a sitcom about nothing, but it ran for so long and had so many episodes that you can probably make up any kind of story using scenes from the series. Take this one for example.

Hexacopter Africa

Hexacopter Africa

A mesmerizing and dizzying POV camera flight through the beautiful coastline, waterfalls, forests, and people of Cameroon, Africa. Courtesy of the MM6 Hexacopter with an on-board camera.

Astonish Me

Astonish Me

The WWF (no, not that WWF) exposes us to some unusual and extraordinary recently discovered species, encouraging us to preserve our planet and habitats so we still might discover more.

Alternative Mariachi

Alternative Mariachi

Mariachi Rock-O takes on a variety of rock and alternative tunes. This clip shows off their Radiohead, but also check out The Cure, Coldplay, The Killers and Bowie. Buy the MP3s here.

Secrets, Secrets

Secrets, Secrets

All-girl sleepover parties include tickle fights and ice cream sundae eating, but until we saw this video, we really had no clue how extreme things can get when it comes time to share secrets.

Real-Life Napoleon Dynamite

Real-Life Napoleon Dynamite

There is absolutely nothing in this video that isn’t awesome. The get-up, the music, the dance moves, the butterfly knife, the chillin’ leopard art, and then there’s… just watch the whole thing.

Joy Ride

Joy Ride

(NSFW: Language) Another short and sweet gem from the folks at 5 Second Films. Saying anything more about a flick this short would be spoiling it, so just sit back and watch. Then watch it again.

Danny’s Industrial Revolutions

Danny’s Industrial Revolutions

Street trials rider extraordinaire Danny MacAskill takes his impressive bike talents and sick tricks into an industrial train yard and some derelict buildings in the Scottish countryside.

Petey Plays Volleyball

Petey Plays Volleyball

Petey the wonder dog enjoys the occasional game of volleyball. And we’re not talking about a random bounce here and there – he can volley longer than most humans could. No serves yet, though.

Conan the Barbarian Fan Trailer

Conan the Barbarian Fan Trailer

(NSFW) The Monocular Group’s Conan the Barbarian: Sex, Swords, Rock & Roll should be the official trailer for the movie. If this doesn’t make you want to watch the movie, nothing will.
