Weird

One Way or Another (Cat Edition)

One Way or Another (Cat Edition)

Musician Stev Aleksic presents a very special cover version of Blondie’s 1978 hit One Way or Another, with vocals performed by a digitally-doctored cat. If it sounds stupid, it is… but it’s still Internet gold.

The Muffin Song

The Muffin Song

TomSka’s latest addition to the hilariously warped asdfmovie series is an adorably weird music video that doubles as a recipe (and a suicide note) for delicious, fresh-baked muffins, performed with the accompaniment of Schmoyoho aka The Gregory Brothers.

Dead Body Hijinks 2

Dead Body Hijinks 2

Finger Machines

Finger Machines

Morgan of Seed Animation Studio gives us all the finger… actually lots of them, in this strange and hypnotic short film which turns human digits into some really unusual mechanical contraptions. At a certain point, they all started looking like hot dogs to us.

Viscoelastic Cocktail

Viscoelastic Cocktail

A hypnotic video of a martini glass filled with some kind of black fluid that is both thick and viscous, and exhibits elastic properties as well. This unspillable gunk looks like the lifeblood of some sort of demonic creature.

Retro Tech: The CalcuPen

Retro Tech: The CalcuPen

These days, if you need a calculator, you simply use your smartphone. But there was a time when calculators were popular standalone problem solving tools. Techmoan checks out another retro oddity – a 1970s calculator crammed into a clunky writing instrument.

Drumming with Tape

Drumming with Tape

From pickle tubs to washing machines, there are lots of unusual ways to create percussive sounds. But this clip from Japan’s Open Reel Ensemble is definitely the first time we’ve seen someone using magnetic reel-to-reel tape as a drum kit. More here.

The Shivering Truth (Pilot)

The Shivering Truth (Pilot)

Hi-Five the Cactus

Hi-Five the Cactus

Animator Chris Thomas spent the last 10 years painstakingly creating what he calls “The World’s First Stop-Frame Animated Western.” While we’re not sure of that claim, what we are sure of is that it’s a one of the most insane things we’ve watched in a long time.

Playing the Leaf

Playing the Leaf

A demonstration of a rather ridiculous traditional Moldavian folk music technique in which the lead musician uses a leaf as a sort of wind instrument that couldn’t help but remind us of the hilariously endless balloon scene in Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday.

ReActor 360º House

ReActor 360º House

“Performance architect” Alex Schweder and artist Ward Shelley’s unique tiny home is only meant for residents with an iron stomach. The entire home not only spins in the wind, but it see-saws as its occupants move back and forth. We’re assuming the furniture is all nailed down.

Metal Ramen Commercial

Metal Ramen Commercial

This commercial for one of Nissin’s instant noodle dishes starts out innocently enough, but then the little chicken presents an offering to the devil, and things get very intense, very quickly. Language is no barrier to enjoying this one. Explanation here (in Japanese).

Chinese Takeout Candle

Chinese Takeout Candle

Packing notes of ginger, soy, and lemongrass, this long-burning candle is designed to conjure the aroma of Chinese food without waiting for the delivery driver to show up. As an added bonus, it has no MSG, so it shouldn’t put you to sleep or give you a headache.

Fusion Remote Exosuit

The World’s Smelliest Factory

The World’s Smelliest Factory

While we have no way of knowing if there is a stinkier place to work on Earth than in the Surströmming industry, we’re pretty sure that canning the notoriously awful-smelling Swedish fermented fish is one of the most aromatically-challenging careers you can have.

UkuRobot: The Robot Ukulele

UkuRobot: The Robot Ukulele

While its robotic “fingers” aren’t nearly as agile as Jake Shimabukuro’s, beginner ukulele players now have some robotic competition, thanks to this desktop machine that can play whatever tune you feed it. Listen as it plays the theme from The Godfather, and more.

Nick DenBoer Showreel 2018

Nick DenBoer Showreel 2018

Video artist, music and comedy producer Nick DenBoer’s wild and crazy CG animation work can be seen in TV shows, music videos, and commercials. His latest showreel is packed with so much insanity that we couldn’t resist sharing it as a standalone work of entertainment.

Painting with Joan

Painting with Joan

Bicycle of Springs

Bicycle of Springs

“If this thing is even remotely rideable… I will be shocked.” Punmaker and stuffmaker Colin Furze’s latest crazy creation is a bicycle that has a frame made out of giant springs instead of standard tubes. It’s a stupid, nonsensical, and impractical build, and that’s why we love it.

Shingle Jingle

Shingle Jingle

Especially for adults over 50, shingles can be a very nasty disease that causes excruciating pain. But for youthful YouTuber Brian David Gilbert – who was recently diagnosed with the ailment, it’s the source for some lyrical inspiration.

FightCrab

FightCrab

Alpha footage from Japanese indie developer Nussoft’s upcoming game Kani no Kenka aka FightCrab aka The Fight Game You Didn’t Know You Needed. Watch in awe as two sword-wielding crustaceans battle it out to the death. Loser goes to Red Lobster.

Making a Knife from Jello

Making a Knife from Jello

The Happytime Murders (Red Band)

The Happytime Murders (Red Band)
