Illusions (Part One)

Illusions (Part One)

Shot in Santiago and Pittsburgh, Samm Hodges Illusions is a graceful, multilayered short film that explores optical illusions, memory and the human experience. (Thanks Christine!)

Lie Witness News: Coachella

Lie Witness News: Coachella

Jimmy Kimmel’s Lie Witness News heads to Coachella, where a reporter asks concertgoers their opinions about bands… that don’t exist. Ever known anyone like that? (Thanks Jay!)

MacAskill’s Imaginate

MacAskill’s Imaginate

We’ve always admired Danny MacAskill’s talents on his bike; in the first of this six-part series we get to know the man behind the bike, working through concerns and options for his injuries, and reflecting on his career.

Man Spaghetti

Man Spaghetti

Felix Colgrave’s Man Spaghetti is a purely odd animated short that tells the story of… well actually, we have no idea what it’s about. But it’s weird. Awesomely weird. (Thanks Cornel!)

Chompy the Shark

Chompy the Shark

(NSFW: language) Isaac Brumaghim was minding his own business, kayak fishing, when he received an unexpected visitor. His reaction is priceless (and way better than if Chompy had actually made contact). (Thanks everybody!)

Gorillage People

Gorillage People

Ok. Let’s say, hypothetically, you’re not up for working right now, for whatever reason. Take a 2:11 break and watch this “Gorillage People” medley from Glove & Boots. You’ll forget anything you were just stressed out about.

True Facts: Naked Mole Rat

True Facts: Naked Mole Rat

ZeFrank is at it again, this time in association with BBC’s Earth Unplugged. Watch and learn fascinating (and rather amusing) factoids about one ugly bugger, the naked mole rat.

Kung Fu Grandpa

Kung Fu Grandpa

There is absolutely no reason why a 58-63 year old man can’t get up, go to the parking lot of his local grocery store and get his nunchucks up in the air like Mary Lou Retton. (Thanks Everyone!)

Alphabets Heaven: Birthday

Alphabets Heaven: Birthday

Birthday, a sparsely layered, experimental tune from Alphabets Heaven reminds us that Spring is coming; Renata GÄ…siorowska’s dreamlike animation is the perfect complement to it.

Cat Walks Dog

Cat Walks Dog

We see this feline is smarter than the average cat, what with this dogwalking task she’s taken on. What we really want to know is if she cleans up after her canine friend too. (Thanks Aaron!)

Not About Us

Not About Us

Swiss filmmaker Michael Frei makes us contemplate the universe and dazzles us in black and white with his simply styled characters and minimal yet effective score in his animated short Not About Us.

Kabooyow! Kapooyow!

Kabooyow! Kapooyow!

The useful advice this lady is doling out will help all of us weather hailstorms better, especially when those suckers are the size of a quarter, doggone. And don’t forget to use the restroom either. (Thanks Ryan!)

WET (Short Film)

WET (Short Film)

A blustery day in Chicago turns out to be more stormy for one young man who must decide whether he is destined to live on land or in the sea, in WET, produced by Rubbish. (Thanks Brad!)

Metal Gear Sunrising

Metal Gear Sunrising

What do you get when you combine Raiden, his Fruit Ninja-like morning routines and a common household appliance? Freddie Wong shows his true devotion to Metal Gear in this amusing vid.

Jeff Gordon’s Test Drive

Jeff Gordon’s Test Drive

We wish it were a tad more “authentic,” but it’s still enjoyable to watch Jeff Gordon get all bearded up and kick ass behind the wheel of a used Camaro, terrified car saleman in tow. (Thanks everyone!)

New York Day

New York Day

We like Samuel Orr’s four minute time-lapse because 1) the film was dynamically distilled from 100,000+ photos; and, frankly, 2) it’s fun to see 24 hours unfold in the greatest city in the world.

Literal Cartoon Thrift Shop

Literal Cartoon Thrift Shop

(NSFW: Language) A great way to enjoy the afternoon: after viewing this playful (and literal) stick figure re-imagining of Macklemore’s Thrift Shop, how can you not laugh? (Thanks Daniel!)
