Weirdest Gaming Cameos

Weirdest Gaming Cameos

(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.

Best Japanese Commercials: 2016

Best Japanese Commercials: 2016

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.

The Magic of Christmas

The Magic of Christmas

Consistently weird animator Cyriak offers up a holiday greeting in the only way he knows how, with a brief and trippy take on where presents really come from, and what really happened to all that garland that you thought the cat ate.

All Star Pitch-Shifted

All Star Pitch-Shifted

There are but a few other songs which have served as the basis for so many memes as Smash Mouth’s 1999 hit All Star. In this video from William Hutchinson, we hear the song ever so slightly tweaked so the vocals never change pitch after the initial note.

Paradise

Paradise

Studio Smack created this weird and wonderful animated re-imagining of Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Garden Of Earthly Delights. Watch in 4K, full-screen to see all of the detail – or head to MOTI to see the full-size installation. See if you can spot Spongebob.

The Tire Ski Jump

The Tire Ski Jump

We’re currently in Tokyo for a few days, so there’s no better time to feature this hilarious bit of old Japanese TV in which they launched a series of car and truck tires down a ski ramp to see how far they would fly. We’re pretty sure this is how Katamari Damacy started.

How to Hack into a Computer

How to Hack into a Computer

It’s been a while since we last checked on YouTube’s psychopathic parody instructor HowToBasic. Let’s see how he’s doing with this “guide” about hacking into computers. Bet he’ll toss eggs at – oh. Okay. See you in another 3 years.

Rock Tuba

Rock Tuba

Musician Travis Netzer shows us how with a few effects pedals and the right technique, an ordinary tuba can sound like an fuzzed out electric guitar, as he performs a cover version of The White Stripes’ Catch Hell Blues from the 2007 album Icky Thump.

Doctor Strange Weird Trailer

Doctor Strange Weird Trailer

You think you know how the world works? If you’ve ever watched one of Aldo Jones‘ Weird Trailers, you most certainly know to expect some strange stuff. It’s only more appropriate this time, since the lead character’s name is “Doctor Strange” after all.

Playing Records with Cash

Playing Records with Cash

England’s new Five Pound notes are made from a durable plastic polymer that makes them impossible to crumple, resistant to water and burning, harder to counterfeit, and as an added bonus, capable of playing records, as shown in this brief video clip.

The Rotating House

The Rotating House

Do you want sunlight streaming in your living room all day long? Do you hate the glare on your computer screen? What you need is a house like Jarle Hegerland’s, which was built in Norway on a giant turntable to control the light coming in – and the view out of the windows.

The Vegetable Orchestra

The Vegetable Orchestra

Great Big Story takes a look an unusual group of musicians based in Vienna, Austria who play just like any other orchestra, except their instruments are perishable, and must be freshly harvested before each performance. Watch a complete concert here.

Playing the Metallophon

Playing the Metallophon

Weapons expert Vitaly Kryuchin heads up the Russian Federation of Practical Shooting. While on the firing range, he came up with this very special musical instrument called the Metallophon, which is played with bullets and extraordinary aim.

Attack of the Tumbleweed

Attack of the Tumbleweed

When we’ve driven through the desert, we’ve had the occasional tumbleweed cross our path. We’ve never seen anything like this though, as seemingly millions of the pesky balls of plant matter took over a stretch of highway like a scene out of a Hitchcock movie.

Laser Engraved Denim

Laser Engraved Denim

While laser engraving is typically done on wood or acrylic, this video shows a laser system which is used to add patterns or a pre-washed look to blue jeans. The completed fashions aren’t our style, but the tech is really cool. Plus, the music just makes it so much more dramatic.

Robot with Human Paintbrush

Robot with Human Paintbrush

Serbian artist Dragan Ilic voluntarily strapped himself onto the end of an industrial robot, while holding onto a box filled with paintbrushes, then allowed the robot to move him around a giant canvas and put him to work as a painter.

Odd and Surprising Stats

Odd and Surprising Stats

Proving that pretty much anything can be turned into a compelling sounding statistic, Mental Floss walks us through 46 wacky and weird stats. According to our statisticians, 36% of you aren’t actually reading this sentence.

The World’s Deadliest Garden

The World’s Deadliest Garden

Great Big Story takes us on a trip to Alnwick Castle’s Poison Garden, an oddity which grows only plants which are capable of causing major harm. The garden currently has about 100 varieties of deadly plant life. We’re guessing they don’t have any problems with vermin.

Repairing a Clogged Licorice Artery

Repairing a Clogged Licorice Artery

It’s been a while since we checked in with The Food Surgeon, but his practice seems to be going strong. In his latest video, he helps to ensure a grape Red Vine has proper flow so it can be used as a drinking straw. Also how can something purple be called a Red Vine?

Flintstones Record Player IRL

Flintstones Record Player IRL

While the proper way to play a record is with a needle, it turns out that other sharp objects will do the trick, if not quite as well. Michael Ridge puts some bird songs on his turntable, then played them with the beak from a seagull’s skull. The bird is the word.

Oddly Satisfying: Magnets

Oddly Satisfying: Magnets

There’s nothing more to Stan Krzyzanowski’s video than a bunch of random metal objects being dropped one by one onto stacks of rare earth magnets, yet somehow it was compelling enough to hook us right from the start and make us watch all 99 seconds anyhow.

Weird Japanese Commercials

Weird Japanese Commercials

We almost think that our lack of understanding the language makes this reel of wacky ads from JPCMHD all the more entertaining. The formula seems simple: any combo of animals, anime, boy bands, girl bands, cosplay, singing, and group choreography will do.

How to Give a Cow a Pedicure

How to Give a Cow a Pedicure

Well, here’s one of the stranger contraptions we’ve ever laid eyes on. This special machine can pick up an entire cow, and gently lay it on its side so farmhands can safely trim its hooves. And yes, it’s totally normal to use a disc grinder, so don’t freak out.

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.

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 6

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 6

June 19, 2016: Warriors Cavs Game 7. Game of Thrones episode 9. And Don’t Hug Me, I’m Scared 6. Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling’s psychological horror series reaches its climax, and Yellow Guy reaches his breaking point. Now we’re scared of lamps.

Synthetic Comedy

Synthetic Comedy

From the underappreciated corner of YouTube comes musician Simon Fransman. He loves to make covers and original songs using voice synthesizers, then combines them with hilariously creepy computer animation.
