Backwards Running Backwards

Backwards Running Backwards

If staging a backwards running event wasn’t strange enough, check out this video of the action played in reverse, which make the whole thing even more surreal and amusing. They look like badly animated NPCs in a video game.

The Simpsons x John K. x Halloween

The Simpsons x John K. x Halloween

Ren and Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi animated yet another weird and warped opening sequence for The Simpsons, this time with a nightmarish Halloween tale for the series’ annual Treehouse of Horror tradition.

Sumo Wrestler Race

Sumo Wrestler Race

While we’re used to the seeing the massive bodies of sumo wrestlers flopping around in the ring, there’s something so funny about seeing these guys competing in a foot race. We think the shorts were slowing down the guy on the inside. Just let it all hang out, dude.

Handful of Crabs

Handful of Crabs

If these were tiny spiders, we’d be totally creeped out, but there’s something oddly soothing about this video of Jeremias Maluw as he picks up a handful of teensy crustaceans and lets them crawl all over his hand.

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 5

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 5

(Gore) Red Guy is gone, but Bird Guy and Yellow Guy have no time to think of him because they have to learn about food. The nightmare continues in this demented puppet show, but it seems like the characters are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

Big Field

Big Field

Darren Dutton and his pals created these offbeat videos by acting out recordings from old vinyl, cassette tapes and TV programs. In keeping with their recycled approach, most of the props cost less than $2 off of eBay. Things get even weirder in Episode Two.

The Cardboard Lexus

The Cardboard Lexus

Lexus UK worked with design agency NVDK, Laser Cut Works, and Scales & Models to create a full-scale, driveable replica of the Lexus IS sedan, using from 1700 laser-cut pieces of cardboard. We’re guessing it’s not as much fun to drive as the actual IS, but it’s still really cool.

Airplane Safety Dance

Airplane Safety Dance

While looking at the safety information briefing card on an airplane, animator Paolo Čerić decided that the images “had a dance vibe,” so he decided to do something about it. If flight attendants presented this information this way, we might actually pay attention.

Crap Taxidermy

Kat Su’s book of f–d up taxidermy is at once hilarious and disturbing, filled with the strange creations we get when we let crazy people try to do “art” with deceased animals. Buy the book or check out the website.

The Pyro Trombone

The Pyro Trombone

Musician Valentin Guérin has a very special brass instrument – a trombone that doubles as a flamethrower. Here, he turns in a performance of Arthur Pryor’s Fantastic Polka, with Valérie Guérin-Descouturelle on piano. We think his nickname should be “hot lips.”

Key & Peele: Marbles

Key & Peele: Marbles

An assistant state’s attorney meets his new boss for the first day on the job, and becomes obsessed with the jar of marbles on the desk. Yet another Key & Peele clip that reminds us they can be just as weird as they are funny.

Swarm Manned Drone

Swarm Manned Drone

In a quest to create his own backyard flying machine, one man built a crazy rig which uses a matrix of 54 drone-style rotors to lift him off the ground. As one YouTube commenter put it: “I believe we have something like this already. It’s called a helicopter.”

Squidercise

Squidercise

We have no idea what’s going on here, but it’s from Japanese television, so that can mean only one thing: a guy dressed in a squid suit doing calisthenics. Dude needs to join Katy Perry’s tour with Left Shark.

Hearing Colors

Hearing Colors

“I don’t feel that I’m wearing technology. I feel that I am technology.” Neil Harbisson has an inability to see in color, so he had an antenna implanted into his skull which produces sounds which represent the colors around him.

Potato Parcel

Potato Parcel

USA Today reports on 24-year old Alex Craig, creator of Potato Parcel. It’s an anonymous messaging service where he handwrites your message on a potato. He claims he now earns ~$10K a month. Dreams really do come true.

Tesla’s Charger Robot

Tesla’s Charger Robot

Tesla showed off a prototype of a new type of charger that uses snake-like appendage to automatically reach out towards a vehicle, and plug itself into the car’s charging port. Just add a few more arms, and you’ve got Doc Ock.

Dog of Wisdom

Dog of Wisdom

Ba. Ha ba ba. Ha ba ba da ga da ga. Ha ba ba da da ba. Ha da ba da ga da ga. Ha da da. Ba ba ba ba. Hawww. Ha wa wa waa. Haw hawwa. Haw. Hawwa babba. Haw. Internet gold. That is all.

Once Upon a Slime in the West

Once Upon a Slime in the West

Joel “Rathergood” Veitch, the man behind those awesomely weird Quizno’s commercials, decided to put on a backyard rodeo, in which the bucking broncos are replaced by snails. According to one commenter, the video is “historically accurate.”

Explosive Juicing

Explosive Juicing

A weird Japanese video in which they demonstrate how to turn vegetables into juice by setting off underwater explosions. The cool part is that the juice remains inside the veggies, as their innards are pulverized by the shockwave.

One Creepy Telemarketer

One Creepy Telemarketer

Blogger Jessica Gottlieb recently took a call from a telemarketer and recorded the entire conversation. Upon letting “Mark” know she was doing this, things got really weird, really fast. It’s so good, it’s already a meme. (Thanks Joe!)

A Fish Plays Fetch

A Fish Plays Fetch

This video purports to be from a series of 2003 experiments showing a fish that’s learned to play fetch just like a dog. The whole thing smells a little fishy to us, since the post links to a mysterious company called Phoenix Biogenic.

Bohemian Organ Rhapsody

Bohemian Organ Rhapsody

An unusual cover version of Queen’s classic Bohemian Rhapsody played on a 110-year-old Marenghi fairground organ, a mechanical instrument which plays music with pipes, percussion, and music recorded on punch cards.

Qantas Safety Dude

Qantas Safety Dude

For no particular reason, Xavier Michelides decided to face swap all of the flight crew in a Qantas flight safety video with his own mug. In the unlikely event that your female flight attendant has a beard, look for the nearest exit.

Scientifically Accurate CatDog

Scientifically Accurate CatDog

(Gross) One fine day with a woof and a purr… The guys from FoxADHD cause a little stir as they explore the science and ethical implications of one of the odder creations in the history of animation – CatDog.

Cockatoo’s Cup Songs
