Competitive eater Matt “Megatoad” Stonie sees how fast he can devour all five of KFC’s $5 Fill Up Meals: 9 fried chicken pieces, 3 mashed potatoes, a chicken pot pie, a famous bowl, 3 biscuits, 5 cookies and 5 medium cups of Diet Coke. Finger lickin’ bad.

Daniela Andrade: Where Is My Mind?

The light and lilting voice of Daniela Andrade powers this welcome addition to the long list of cover versions we’ve heard of The Pixies 1988 classic, and is a wonderful introduction to this young woman’s incredible talent.

Hanbyul Kang: Golden Voice

Hanbyul Kang: Golden Voice

It’s been over a year since musician Hanbyul Kang last posted a song to his YouTube channel, but his back catalog of smooth and soulful covers is too good not to share. Here’s hoping we hear more from Hanbyul down the road.

Chopstick Piano

Chopstick Piano

When we saw the title of Kuma Films‘ latest video we thought we’d be watching some kids playing Chopsticks on a piano, but instead, we got to hear some truly wonderful music by Sami Elu, made with a cool stringed instrument that’s played with chopsticks as the hammers.

Zombie: Acoustic Cover

Zombie: Acoustic Cover

A wonderful unplugged cover version of The Cranberries’ 1994 classic Zombie, as performed by musician Vedran Djurasovic, who brings a warmer approach to the track than the grunge sounds of the original.

Rubik’s Cube vs. Usain Bolt

Rubik’s Cube vs. Usain Bolt

On a good day, we can solve a Rubik’s Cube in about a half hour, but Anthony Brooks can do it in just a few seconds. Here, he proves his speed by taking on Olympic gold-medal winner Usain Bolt’s incredible speed.

Bonetics

Bonetics

It’s ironic that the performer in this video goes by the moniker “Bonetics,” given the fact that it appears he is completely boneless. Watch as he performs insane and seemingly impossible moves which combine breakdancing with contortion. (Thanks Dan!)

Fancy Footwork

Fancy Footwork

Kuma Films captured this footage of performer Li Wei Yang as she demonstrates her ability to spin and juggle objects like a table and umbrellas using her feet. Apparently, she also offers amusement park rides in her spare time.

Yo-Yo Slo-Mo 2

Yo-Yo Slo-Mo 2

Beyond Slow Motion follows up on their previous video of yo-yo fanatic Ben Conde as he continues to turn a simple piece of string and a butterfly wheel into a living work of art. We love the water shot at 2:46.

Car Rides with Motoki

Car Rides with Motoki

YouTuber Moretoki combines carpool karaoke with lip sync battle. His celebrity guest? Himself. Watch him work, work, work it to the latest hits while his unimpressed mom drives him around. This kid should audition for Justice League’s Plastic Man.

Tom Thum: Ratchet Face

Tom Thum: Ratchet Face

Beatboxer Tom Thum turns in an epic live performance of his track Ratchet Face, spitting out crazy sounds, and impressing us with his mad looping and sequencing skills. Though there were times we couldn’t help think of Billy Bob Thornton in Sling Blade.

Harp Metal

Harp Metal

We’re used to see musician Rob Scallon shredding licks on his electric guitar (or the occasional shovel), but for his latest video, he upgraded from eight strings to 22, and ripped up the place on harp. Honestly, we had no idea that instrument could make such sounds.

17 Jägerbombs

17 Jägerbombs

Bartender Philip Traber could barely reach the top of his stack of glasses to fill them with the Jägermeister, but in the end, he managed to carefully fill all 17 of his shot glasses, and dunk them into the Red Bull with flair – besting his previous world’s record.

Nonstop: Air Chair

Nonstop: Air Chair

Dancer Marquese “Nonstop” Scott never ceases to amaze us with his smooth-as-butter moves. This time out, he uses his skills to seemingly defy gravity and create furniture out of thin air. The track is Stwo’s Her (Majid Jordan Edit).

How to Play the Blue Danube

How to Play the Blue Danube

Charlie Albright shows us just how fast his fingers can fly across the keyboard of his Steinway with this performance of Adolf Schulz-Evler’s Arabesque of Johann Strauss’ Blue Danube Waltz. Oh, and Charlie doesn’t just do classical. Check out his boogie woogie.

Wish You Were Here in Jerusalem

Wish You Were Here in Jerusalem

Brothers Aryeh and Gil Gat turn in an excellent cover version of Pink Floyd’s 1975 classic on the streets of Jerusalem. If this isn’t hard proof that you can’t judge a book by its cover, we don’t know what is. More here.

The Watermelon King

The Watermelon King

Time-lapse footage of carver Valeriano Fatica as he spends 18 hours sculpting an intricate bust of Game of Thrones’ imposing Night’s King from a watermelon. Previously, he made a white walker from a pumpkin.

Musical Matchboxes

Musical Matchboxes

There are lots of different things you can use to create rhythms, but we find the sounds created by musician Dominik Schad and his boxes of matches to be particularly pleasing to our ears. Even better with headphones on.

Weird Beatbox Sounds

Weird Beatbox Sounds

Hailing from Portugal, beatboxer JEWOW loses his mind, flails his arms wildly, and rattles our eardrums, as he demonstrates his ability to create some absolutely insane sounds with his mouth. Also, Fargo guy plays the drumsticks.
