Just when you think you’re so clever, here comes Helsinki-based talent Lucas Zanotto. In his latest playful and creative offering, he’s playing around with the idea of eyes. We wonder if we’d be as sharp if we had more coffee.
The Dodo compiled this brief video of cats being mysterious and stealthy as they sneak into rooms, climb walls, and rifle through drawers. We’re guessing they’re on a quest for the secret location of the world’s largest catnip farm.
A compilation of cats who want nothing more than to come back in the house so they can make further demands of their human servants just as soon as they get inside. Our cat likes to do this INSIDE the bedroom at 4am.
Smarter Every Day talks about Facebook pages stealing videos from YouTube instead of embedding it or at least crediting the video’s creator. Facebook is apathetic about it because it earns money from ads shown beside these videos.

Big Lazy Robot steps away from frightening glimpses of a grim future with this much lighter but cynical take on the negative and homogenizing effects of technology. Don’t take it too seriously. We all have an iDiot inside of us.

As we all know, Al Gore invented the internet solely for the purpose of viewing cat videos. In this video, Eclectic Method serve up a heaping helping of YouTube cat vids the only way they know how – as a groovy electronic tune.
This cool supercut by Duncan Robson looks at the regularly used TV and movie trope of putting the magic touch on a malfunctioning machine to get it to work. The music really helps string the scenes into a collection.
There are tons of videos about high priced and high performance rides online, but many of them treat the cars like dainty works of art. Not Tax the Rich. This YouTube channel isn’t afraid to let supercars run free.
We wish we had the tenacity of this mailman, who probably has the most difficult route ever, which includes the likes of Indiana Jones, Freddy Krueger and Iron Man. Then again, we do enjoy laying on the couch watching cartoons.

We have a renewed interest in live musical theatre now, thanks to the emotive puppetry and laugh-out-loud song lyrics here in Wolverine! The Musical. And it’s all dreamed up from Glove and Boots. (Thanks John!)
