Awesome Weird

The Universal Record

The Universal Record

Artist Jesse England created this rather silly device which, when placed on a turntable, uses vibrations to send music from a Bluetooth device through the needle of the record player – transforming any audio source into vinyl… ish.

Bach on Boomwhackers

Bach on Boomwhackers

Les Objets Volants performs Bach’s Prélude n°1 using quirky musical instruments – plastic tubes called Boomwhackers – which emit a note when hit. The sound is reminiscent of Blue Man Group, but thankfully there’s no blue makeup here.

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 4

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 4

Keep it weird with the latest in its series of offbeat “kids” videos, as the denizens of Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared learn all about the digital world. What starts off as cute quickly turns into nightmare fuel as usual.

Mongolian Throat Rapping

Mongolian Throat Rapping

Just when you think you’ve heard every possible musical genre, someone comes around to shake things up. Mongolian throat singer Zorigoo performs this unique rap track, accompanied by Zaya. The closest thing we can think of is Shaggy.

The Ant Watch

The Ant Watch

This watch won’t help you tell time at all, but you’ll still have the coolest watch on the block – since yours will be a fully-functional (though very small) ant colony. Comes with sand, a feeding dropper, tweezers, and of course, five live ants.

Blood Drinker

Blood Drinker

(NSFW: Language) This is Mikey. He left college to become an unlikely hero. Don’t miss his story. Joe and Lloyd Stas’ bite-sized comedy is like a teaser for Napoleon Dynamite, if it was written and directed by Wes Anderson.

Steve’s Problem

Steve’s Problem

(NSFW: Language) Mike Lars White’s award-winning short film is a hilariously weird take on the awkwardness men face when having to stand inches apart at public urinals, and the strange consequences of one man’s trepidations.

The Wearable Tomato Project

The Wearable Tomato Project

Perhaps the most ridiculous invention to hit the running scene ever, the Tomatan is a robot that athletes can strap to themselves so they can eat tomatoes while distance running. A silly promo gimmick for Japanese food company Kagome.

The Cool Baby

The Cool Baby

Pretend to be a doting dad while you’re really getting your drink on, thanks to this whacked out insulated drink flask disguised as a baby. We’re going to guess this was one of those Brilliant Ideas Had While Stoned.

McDonald’s: Clean It

McDonald’s: Clean It

Not to be outdone by Wendy’s classic training videos, McDonald’s created this cheesetastic Michael Jackson inspired video to motivate its employees to keep the joint clean. An oddly appropriate companion piece to Weird Al’s Eat It.

Jurassic Weird

Jurassic Weird

Darren Wallace must have had some time (and drugs) on his hands when he decided to take the trailer for Jurassic World and rework it in the weirdest possible way. All we know is that it’s got velociraptors on motorcycles.

SNL: The Wishin’ Boot

SNL: The Wishin’ Boot

With country star Blake Shelton as its guest host, Saturday Night Live had the perfect opportunity to create this uplifting ditty. Listen y’all to this story of “hope in the form of a little ol’ dirty boot.”

100 Maids Make Pancakes

100 Maids Make Pancakes

An army of sexy and flexible Japanese maids cooking breakfast for a rich old man isn’t exactly the most progressive of ideas, but that doesn’t make this commercial for non-stick cookware any less awesome.

Face Hacking

Face Hacking

Producer Nobumichi Asai is the party responsible for the creepy use of face-tracking and projection mapping to replace the faces of live subjects in real time. We won’t be held responsible for any nightmares you have after watching this.

Gold Bond Liqui-Shaq

Gold Bond Liqui-Shaq

Are you sick of Shaq’s corny Gold Bond commercials? This remix will put them in a new light. YouTuber Davy Force worked his magic on the ads and turned them into “a liquidy meltoid vidiboil.”

Unedited Footage of a Bear

Unedited Footage of a Bear

(Gore) Adult Swim brings back Halloween with this amazing short film. If you thought Too Many Cooks was creepy, hug your loved ones tight, turn the lights up, put a diaper on and press play. Claridryl: not even once.

How to Eat Live Octopus

How to Eat Live Octopus

(Gross) Munchies’ Sydney Chun visited Korean chef Kim Sang Jin to learn how to properly prepare and eat wriggling live octopus in a way that its sticky tentacles wont get stuck in your throat and kill you. Unleash the Kraken!

Watermelon

Watermelon

Watermelon, watermelon, watermelon, watermelon, watermelon, watermelon, watermelon, watermelon, watermelon, watermelon, watermelon, watermelon, watermelon, watermelon… what a melon.

Instant Shrimp Frying

Instant Shrimp Frying

Shrimp doesn’t really take that long to cook, but this commercial for Japanese mobile carrier Docomo shows how you can fry shrimp in less than three seconds – with the right equipment – and the appropriate death metal track.

Old Spice: Dad Song

Old Spice: Dad Song

Old Spice follows up on its totally wacked out Mom Song with a tune by FotC’s Bret McKenzie about a little boy growing up to be a man because he used scented body sprays. Dad seems a lot happier that Junior has grown up than Mom does.

Packing Tape Cat

Packing Tape Cat

Cats are persnickety creatures, so sometimes they wig out when they hear strange noises. In the case of this one feline, it has the weirdest possible reaction when its owner unrolls packing tape. Apparently this also works with measuring tapes.

Making Food, Play-Doh Style

Making Food, Play-Doh Style

For the series Good Mythical Morning, Rhett and Link create a number of edible items using the tools kids use to work with Play-Doh. While it’s not the most appetizing way to prepare food, it’s got to taste better than Play-Doh itself. Or not.

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 3

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 3

The latest video in Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling’s series of surreal and inappropriate “children’s” videos, Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 3 sets out to teach us about love and loneliness, but ends up just freaking us out as usual.

An Armadillo and His Toy

An Armadillo and His Toy

Armadillos like playing with toys? Who knew that was a thing? Described hilariously by one b3ta commenter as “a cross between a cat and a beetle”, this little guy named Rollie seems to enjoy kicking around his toy pig.

KFC: Fried Chicken Keyboard

KFC: Fried Chicken Keyboard

To celebrate Colonel Sanders’ 124th birthday, KFC Japan is giving away a keyboard that has fried chicken keys and the worst Esc button we’ve ever seen. It will also give away a fried chicken mouse, flash drive and earrings.

Mascot Road Rage

Mascot Road Rage

We have no idea what prompted the violence, but the guy who received the beatdown from Mickey Mouse, Spongebob Squarepants, Scrat the Squirrel and some elephant is going to be nursing his bruised ego more than any physical injuries.
