We can’t believe it’s not butter! Unlike the guys at your state fair, chef Devwrat Anand Jategaonkar and his team used margarine as their clay. Their record-breaking sculpture of the Trimurti of Elephanta weighed over 3300 lb and measured more than 8 feet wide by 6 feet high.
It may look a little bit like a sideways stargate, but this robot is designed to carefully position itself around a Jenga stack, methodically pluck out a wooden block, and move it to the top of the stack. We’d be curious to see if it could play an entire game, but we’re guessing not.
(Gross) It’s an age old story of a girl falling in love with her one true soulmate – except in this case, her significant other just happens to be creepy alien creature. Oh Yeah Wow’s video for Millington’s jangly love song starts out silly, and ends like a horror film.
If you think Bob Ross should always be painting happy little trees, you might want to look away from Alexander Reben’s horrifying clip, in which they ran footage from The Joy of Painting through deep-learning audio and video processing software. The brown acid is bad.
Paradigm is a hilarious point-and-click adventure set in a post-apocalyptic world filled with mutants, including a pug with a mullet, a giant sloth, a human duck, and whatever its eponymous protagonist is supposed to be. PC & Mac demos available here. Drops 4/5/17.
One of the stranger cooking machines we’ve seen – this thing takes in grain, salt, and water, then applies heat and pressure to make rice crackers. The resulting explosion causes them to fly out of its mouth like jet-powered frisbees. Here’s a similar machine.
YouTube channel Sync Fu was designed with a single purpose – to combine kung fu and action scenes with wildly out of place music. We’re not sure why it works, but it often does. Ouf favorite is Casshern vs. Mr. Roboto, but Lone Wolf and Cub vs. In The Air Tonight is perfect too.
Musician Randy George created this clip almost a decade ago, performing the most unusual cover version we’ve ever heard of Gnarls Barkley’s hit tune Crazy – using a theremin in place of the lead vocals. Given the title and subject matter of the song, it’s somehow fitting.
(PG-13: Language) Ever since it was possible to discern faces in video games, celebs have been showing up as either themselves or as characters. But not every in-game appearance makes sense, as AlltimeGaming points out. That creepy Burger King product placement, eesh.
If there’s one thing we can count on from Japan, it’s their weird, wacky, and over-the-top sensibilities when it comes to its TV shows and commercials. JPCMHD put together a reel of the most entertaining Japanese commercial spots from 2016. We totally want a DualSaw now.
