Awesome Weird

Malfunction

Malfunction

Animator Cyriak’s latest clip is as trippy as they come. It starts off with a creepy dog-like manifestation of himself crawling out of the drain and just escalates from there. Warning: May cause nightmares and hallucinations.

OMOTE

OMOTE

One of the most mindbending uses of projection mapping demonstrates how a model’s face can be digitally replaced when the tech is combined with real-time face tracking. If you happen to live in Tokyo, see a live demo on 8/28/14.

The Killer Worm

The Killer Worm

Eunice aphroditois is one of Mother Nature’s truly awful creations. This predator lies in wait in the ocean floor, taking down its prey with teeth so sharp that it often slices it in half. Oh, and they can grow to 10 feet long.

The Average Face of Doctor Who

The Average Face of Doctor Who

YouTuber Dave Clipson looks at what Doctor Who might look like if all 13 of his main variants were combined into one meta-Doctor. While the combo of Matt Smith and David Tennant looks normal, most others seem downright creepy.

Turn Down for What without Music

Turn Down for What without Music

(NSFW?) We already had to wash our eyeballs out with soap the first time we watched the video for DJ Snake and Lil’ Jon’s Turn Down for What. Now that College Humor has had their way with it, we might be scarred for life.

Party Bus

Party Bus

(NSFW: Language) Duuuudes! Bros! Let’s get sh*tfaced and ride on the drunk bus and partaaaay! This hilariously weird clip from FoxADHD shows us what happens when we let our party buses party too much.

Holy Grail Unipiper

Holy Grail Unipiper

Portland’s Brian “Unipiper” Kidd has been seen roaming the city dressed as Arthur, King of the Britains, along with his coconut-clacking squire, making the sound effect even more nonsensical due to the fact that Arthur is riding a unicycle.

The Deepest Voice

The Deepest Voice

Ken Turner of Southern gospel group Crystal River Boys can hit a deep bass note that sounds like he swallowed an Octobass. Skip to 3:30 for the good part. Say, wasn’t there a Mythbusters about this? Or was it South Park?

Flying Robot Orchestra

Flying Robot Orchestra

KMel Robotics talented team of flying drones shows off their musical prowess, playing drums, keyboards, bells, and strings. Sure, it’s all a little odd sounding, but you try being in a band with no hands or arms while hovering in the air.

Ghost Car

Ghost Car

You know when someone gets into an accident and says “the other guy came out of nowhere?” In Russia, it really does happen. Just try and wrap your head around the car in this video that does seem to materialize out of thin air.

Chicken Beauty Pageants

Chicken Beauty Pageants

Photographer Ernest Goh talks about the subject of his latest book: ornamental chickens. To document these unusual models, Ernest went around Malaysia, where chicken beauty pageants are held nearly every week across the country.

Yoshimi Battles Miley Cyrus

Yoshimi Battles Miley Cyrus

(NSFW: Language) In what could be the most unlikely collaboration in the history of collaborations, The Flaming Lips appeared on stage with Miley Cyrus to sing a rather good rendition of Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots.

PlotClock

PlotClock

This lonely little robot has just one job to do – to tell the time by writing it down, then erasing it, over and over and over again. Even though it has no feelings, we’ve attached some and decided it’s the world’s most depressed robot.

Goat Simulator

Goat Simulator

Watch out Flappy Bird. Independent game developer Coffee Stain Studios presents the next big thing in gaming. Or not. They were just fooling around with “programming stuff” and decided to make this video.

Chimpnology

Chimpnology

Animator Cyriak dips back into the wacky sauce once more, this time creating a trippy short film based on old footage of monkeys banging on typewriters. We were waiting for them to write some Shakespeare, but that never happened.

Willie Nelson Roach Paper Art

Willie Nelson Roach Paper Art

Cliff Maynard created this image of renown pot smoker Willie Nelson entirely from the burnt roach papers from the butts of joints. He’s also made Bob Marley and Snoop Dogg among others. Prints limited to an edition of 420, natch.

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 2

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 2

“An old man died…but look a computer!” Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling’s adult puppet show takes on the concept of time. Also one of the characters invented his dad.  Sesame Street must have ruined Becky and Joe’s childhoods.

Deadman

Deadman

Not to be confused with Boston Brand’s spectral alter ego, Rush_Freak’s Deadman is literally that: a dead man. He possesses a can-do attitude that most of us with warm bodies don’t have. Mostly because we can feel pain. And die.

Live Forever as You Are Now

Live Forever as You Are Now

(NSFW/Flashing lights) Is your life devoid of weirdness and nightmares? Let’s remedy that with this Adult Swim feature about a man who makes virtual replicas of people. From Alan Resnick, the comedian behind Alantutorial.

Kiss from a Rose

Kiss from a Rose

Drunk guy on the floor. Check. Annoyed cat. Check. Off-key song cover. Check. This short, nonsensical video clip has everything required to make for an Internet classic. What song would you serenade your cat with?

Spider Crab Molting

Spider Crab Molting

Time-lapse footage of one of nature’s more unusual and somewhat disgusting processes, as a giant spider crab discards its old shell to make way for a new one to grow. Jump to 0:53 in the video for the big reveal.

Christmas Face

Christmas Face

Following up on last year’s Christmas Sweatz, Rhett and Link are back with their friends to bring a little random holiday cheer our way – perhaps starting a new Christmas trend to replace ugly sweaters along the way. Or not.

Reverse Racing in Reverse

Reverse Racing in Reverse

This old footage of racing in Holland starts out ordinarily. But watch for a second more and you’ll notice something is askew. That’s because the racers are driving backwards… and then played back in reverse to really screw with our heads.

In Dreams

In Dreams

A short film by Samuel Blain about strange recurring dreams, in which the individuals reporting on their experiences have their heads replaced with physical manifestations of their bad dreams. Now we’re gonna have weird dreams.

Doge Adventure

Doge Adventure

wow. so animation. much soundtrack. Weebl’s Stuff takes a page out of Nyan Cat’s book, creating an infections little video featuring the Internet’s favorite shibe doge. Nope, it still makes no sense, but we love it anyway.

Dirds

Dirds

We prefer the moniker “birddogs” for these amusing hybrid animals created by carefully merging dogs and birds into a new species – courtesy of Adobe Photoshop. We definitely wouldn’t want to get hit by falling dird poop.
