THE BEST Talents

Father vs. Daughter Beatbox

Father vs. Daughter Beatbox

St. Louis beatboxer Nicole Paris takes on her dad to see who can spit sounds better. Dad’s pretty good, but it’s quickly apparent that young Nicole has outpaced the skills of her sensei. We always want our kids to do better than us, right?

Tap Dance Medley

Tap Dance Medley

The very talented choreographer and tap dancer Sarah Reich dances to a medley of diverse and rhythmic tracks, accompanied by the guys from Postmodern Jukebox. We’re surprised her platform doesn’t catch on fire by the end.

Talented, But Homeless

Talented, But Homeless

Like most who find themselves homeless, there’s clearly more to the story of Donald Gould as he demonstrates his amazing musical talent on the streets of Sarasota, Florida. Show your support for Donald over on GoFundMe.

Guns ‘N Roses ‘N Violins

Guns ‘N Roses ‘N Violins

An unlikely cover version of Guns ‘N Roses Sweet Child O’ Mine performed in four violin parts by musician Cathie King. The video is two years old, but is just making the rounds now that G’NR shared it. Arrangement by Ben Hippen.

Amazing Guitar Harmonics

Amazing Guitar Harmonics

Guitarist Miguel Rivera turns in an incredible acoustic rendition of Michael Jackson’s classic Beat It, finessing out wondrous rhythms and crazy harmonics along the way. You can download his originals over on Bandcamp.

Another Epic Split

Another Epic Split

While acrobat Jon Call (aka Jujumufu) didn’t do his split between two moving trucks like JCVD did, he did amp up the danger by holding a 100 pound barbell over his head while doing his.

The Strumming Drummer

The Strumming Drummer

Musician Pensen Paletti demonstrates a nifty trick – his ability to play both his acoustic guitar and a small electronic drum controller at once, resulting in a complete one-man rhythm section. Hear another guit-drum tune here.

The Human Saxophone

The Human Saxophone

Declan Feeney likes to play the saxophone. Except he doesn’t actually own one. Instead, he does some crazy stuff with his vocal chords to create an uncanny mock sax. Here, he plays a bit of The Pink Panther theme.

Robot on an Airboard

Robot on an Airboard

Dancer Madd Chadd appears to be more robot than human as he pops, locks and breaks it down into controlled mechanical movements all while he maintains his balance on a wheeled Airboard. The track is So by Dabow.

The Animal Sound Man

The Animal Sound Man

South African performer William Jafta forgoes celebrity impersonations, instead imitating the sounds of numerous animals, including birds, cats, dogs, goats and cows. But can he do a Lyrebird?

One Man, Three Little Birds

One Man, Three Little Birds

Samurai Guitarist proves his dexterity as he performs Bob Marley’s Three Little Birds on three ukuleles, a snare drum, tambourine, organ, bass and harmonica all at once. His five guitar rendition of Für Elise ain’t too shabby either.

Original Gentleman: Hip Hop Dancing

Original Gentleman: Hip Hop Dancing

“Over the hill… and picking up speed.” That’s how 60-year-old UK expat and Bay Area resident Peter Barnes describes himself. Here he reinforces that statement, proving that age has nothing to do with a youthful spirit. More here.

A Robot Fixes Breakfast

A Robot Fixes Breakfast

Dancer Karen X Cheng does her best impression of a stereotypical robot, mocking its imprecise movements as it tries to eat breakfast. Guess we’ll need to stock up for the robopocalypse. Bonus points for the audience member at 1:22.

Tha TrickaZ: Pushing More Buttons

Tha TrickaZ: Pushing More Buttons

(PG-13 Lyrics) An impressive live performance by the digital remix duo of Tha TrickaZ, loaded with iconic audio samples from music, TV shows, and movies. See if you can name all the tracks. We love that they snuck the Robocop theme in.

The Best Schwarzenegger

The Best Schwarzenegger

Every impressionist on the planet thinks they can do Arnold Schwarzenegger, but David Andrew Brent pulls off the best Arnie we’ve ever heard by exhibiting impressive restraint, rather than the Hans and Franz approach others have taken.

Tiny Tom Sawyer

Tiny Tom Sawyer

New York performer Ricky Syers uses “Chopsy,” his drummer puppet and tiny tin can drums he created to play the percussion section of the 1981 Rush classic Tom Sawyer. We’re betting the guitar part would be a bit more difficult to pull off.

Wendy the Talking Dog

Wendy the Talking Dog

Parisian entertainer Marc Métral turned up on Britain’s Got Talent with a hilariously quirky act – a dog that can really talk. Sorta. His dream is to perform in front of the royal family. We think Marc deserves the chance.

Bach on Boomwhackers

Bach on Boomwhackers

Les Objets Volants performs Bach’s Prélude n°1 using quirky musical instruments – plastic tubes called Boomwhackers – which emit a note when hit. The sound is reminiscent of Blue Man Group, but thankfully there’s no blue makeup here.

Cardistry: Air Time

Cardistry: Air Time

Huron Low, Kevin Ho and Daren Yeow of The Virts are back to show off their impressive card handling skills with Virtuoso’s new SS15 deck, with its vibrant and eyecatching color scheme. Sign up to get on the early bird order list.

The Bubble Artist

The Bubble Artist

Kuma Films captured the mesmerizing bubble artistry of Su Chung Tai as he commands soap bubbles to follow his every whim. The bit with the stacked concentric bubbles is simply stunning. (Thanks Todd!)

Surf Guitar, Literally.

Surf Guitar, Literally.

The legendary Dick Dale introduced us to surf guitar music, but surfer and musician Chris Hau seems to have misinterpreted the phrase, instead playing his guitar while wakeboarding. And we can barely walk and chew gum at the same time.

Amazing Pool Trick Shots 2

Amazing Pool Trick Shots 2

Master and commander of the pool table Steve Markle is back to show off his uncanny ability to command ball physics like a boss. That shot at 1:45 made our brains hurt. If Steve were one of the X-Men, his name would be Pathbender.

2CELLOS: Hysteria

2CELLOS: Hysteria

Cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser crank the energy level up to 9000 for this amazing, frenetic performance of the Muse classic Hysteria, done as only 2CELLOS can do it. One of the numerous epic tracks on their new album Celloverse.

12 Pianists, 1 Piano

12 Pianists, 1 Piano

We’ve seen five people play one guitar, but before that ever happened, a dozen pianists shared duties at a single grand piano. When all of their hands get going at once, it looks some sort of crazy centipede. (Thanks Orion!)

DTM Freerun: About Time

DTM Freerun: About Time

The athletes of DTM Freerun show off their amazing agility and gymnastic skills in this short film, set to the heartpumping rhythms of Jungle by X Ambassadors. Man, these guys can tumble.

World Record Log Carry

World Record Log Carry

The almighty Mountain Hafþór Björnsson, yet again proves his epic strength, as he breaks a world record by carrying a 1411 lb. log on his back and walking five steps – a feat that which purportedly last happened in ancient Viking days.
