Mountain bike rider Mark Matthews takes us on a wild first-person ride through a foggy stretch of forest on Vancouver Island. As the greenery and trees whip by, we couldn’t help but think of the speeder bike chase on Endor, just with smaller trees.

The Bloodhound LSR team marches closer towards their land speed record goal with a jet-powered car that could reach speeds up to 1000mph. Testing has been going well with some crazy fast runs across the Hakskeenpan desert in South Africa with pilot Andy Green behind the controls. They’ve since hit 461 mph.

Via

Maria Constanza Ferreira created this short using screen grabs from Google Street View. By setting the perspective to a fixed view, it creates the illusion of an impossibly long road. As the film progresses, it uses digital manipulation to turn satellite images into abstract art.

A380 Night Landing

A380 Night Landing

This amazing 4K footage from High Pressure Aviation Films is the closest that most of us will ever get to landing a modern jumbo jet.

They’re currently raising funds for their new film From the Sky 2.

First-person Scooter

Here in the US, our streets are filled with SUVs, pickups, and other larger than necessary vehicles. In many places around the globe, subcompacts and scooters are the norm. Here’s a POV look at the insanity of weaving through traffic in Hanoi, Vietnam on a Honda scooter.

Making Coffee

Making Coffee

Like everything he does, Buttered Side Down over-complicates even the most basic tasks. In this silly POV video, he attempts to make the world’s strongest cup of coffee after his mind starts playing tricks on him. Naturally, his brew makes him just that much more jittery.

Underneath a Skateboard

Underneath a Skateboard

Pro skater Dean-Paul Denniston rigged a GoPro to the underside of hise skateboard, providing a unique perspective on his world, including a badass maneuver called a “kickflip backside lipslide.” We love how the noise the wheels make sounds like an engine.

Parkour vs. Hot Air Balloons

Parkour vs. Hot Air Balloons

The athletes of STORROR offer up one of the coolest parkour settings we’ve seen, as a team of acrobats run and jump among the rocky formations of Cappadocia, Turkey while numerous hot air balloons float in the distance and overhead. That bit in the ancient building was bonkers. Go behind the scenes of the journey here.

Demolition Drone Flight

Demolition Drone Flight

FPV drone fanatics Rotor Riot managed to score an amazing opportunity to fly – and then dive one of their drones right into the site of an old power plant as it was being imploded, thanks to the guys at Total Wrecking & Environmental. The resulting footage, while brief, is truly epic.

GoPro on a Turtle

GoPro on a Turtle

We’ve been on horseback, but we never thought we’d get to go on a turtleback ride. Thanks to YouTuber The Fish Whisperer, we can now see what it’s like to be a turtle, as this little fella heads off into the muddy water, and pops his head up for the occasional fishy snack.

There was also quite the crash at the start of the race. (Thanks Matl!)

Vacuuming a Mess

Vacuuming a Mess

Buttered Side Down is always making such a mess of his place, it’s no wonder he needs a good vacuum cleaner. Witness the power of BSD’s very special Eureka upright as it makes quick work of the debris in his suckiest POV video yet.

Swatting a Fly

Swatting a Fly

There’s nothing quite as annoying as a house fly buzzing around – especially when there’s food involved. Buttered Side Down was making himself a sammidge when the pesky insect tried to make a move on his ham and pickles. Naturally, he attempted to exterminate the bugger, with limited success.

Ch(eat)ing Death

Ch(eat)ing Death

POV shooter Buttered Side Down tosses a couple of grapes up in the air to see if he catch and swallow them whole. Then, as usual, he quickly ramps things up to expert level. Does anyone up in here know the Heimlich maneuver?

Train to Atlantis

Train to Atlantis

5MadMovieMakers mounted a GoPro Fusion 360º camera to a model railcar then sent it on a wild journey from a backyard to the beach to the ocean. We’ll forgive the couple of obvious edits as it’s such a thrilling ride. Try spinning the camera and watch from different angles.

Learning to Sculpt

Learning to Sculpt

Buttered Side Down tries his hand at sculpting clay, but like most of his videos, things quickly run off the rails, and his clay creations end up rebelling against their maker, and eventually getting the upper hand.

POV Log Ride

POV Log Ride

No this isn’t one of those log flume rides from a waterpark. What you’re about to witness is the point of view of a large piece of wood as it makes its way through the RedStag Timber sawmill. We’re impressed they didn’t cut their camera in half or sand it down along the way.

Making Candy Corn

Making Candy Corn

After watching how badly homemade candy corn can turn out, Buttered Side Down should have known better than to try. But he still went through with it, with even more disastrous and bizarre results than How to Make Everything ended up with.

A GoPro Adventure in Les 3 Vallees

Director Claudiu Voicu took what could have been a typical snowboarding video into a visual masterpiece. He says his primary goal was to include the most challenging scene transitions he could think of, and we think he succeeded. The monsters just makes it that much better.
