Working Wooden Motorcycle

Working Wooden Motorcycle

Hungarian craftsman Istvan Puskas built his own custom chopper – not using metal parts, but instead making his motorcycle primarily out of acacia wood. Bonus points for that helmet, Istvan.

Military Clown Car

Military Clown Car

While we’ve seen as many as 24 people cram into a Mini, the never-ending stream of Russian troops coming out of the back of this truck remind us of some sort of alien spawn-point in a videogame.

Alpine Finger Wrestling

Alpine Finger Wrestling

If you think arm wrestling is tough, check out this German sport – in which combatants pull against each other as hard as they can, using only their middle fingers. We’re sticking with Thumb War.

World’s Smallest Firetruck

World’s Smallest Firetruck

While we think this diminutive fire truck is cute, we’d surely be hoping that there’s some backup on the way if our house were on fire – unless we lived in a dollhouse, in which case we’d be okay.

Town Bans Dying

Town Bans Dying

The mayor of Falciano del Massico, Italy has banned its citizens from dying – not because they’ve discovered the Fountain of Youth, but because there’s no more room in the cemetery.

The Cow Wash

The Cow Wash

While we’d never take our cars through a wash with such hard brushes, these cows seem to really enjoy the scratchy bristles in this automated cow wash. We bet an uddercarriage wash costs extra.

Geometric Porn

Geometric Porn

(NSFW?) While Luciano’ Foglia’s app doesn’t actually include any sexually explicit photos, Apple rejected it for being “objectionable.” It’s just geometry after all. Dirty, dirty geometry.

Cobwebs

Cobwebs

Arachnophobes look away! Cyriak fills our screens (and worst nightmares) with an endless barrage of animated spiders crafted from circuit boards, human heads, and other stuff. Get the Raid!

Pizza Boomerang

Pizza Boomerang

(NSFW: Gore) The WTF video for the month, brought to us by SOFA. We’ve seen it 3 times but the only thing we understood is that the red liquid on Pizza Boomerang is not tomato sauce.

Sprint Cycling

Sprint Cycling

One of the weirdest races in the world. It’s a 1-on-1 battle where the one in the lead is actually at a disadvantage due to aerodynamics, and most of the race is fought at a tension-filled snail’s pace.

Going to the Store IRL

Going to the Store IRL

Remember the ridiculous Going to the Store? Yeah, we didn’t quite get it either, but we still laughed. Here, JosephPeed does his own version, which made us spit out our coffee this morning.

SEED (Short Film)

SEED (Short Film)

A strange and sinister stop-motion film about an egg and an apple who build broadcast towers to compete for the attention of a lone transistor radio. Winner, Best Animated Short, Slamdance 2010.

Touch My Katamari: Billiards

Touch My Katamari: Billiards

My Leather, My Fur, My Nails

The music video for My Leather, My Fur, My Nails, a catchy chiptune tale that anyone who’s been mooched and leeched from will relate to. From the Ordinaire EP of goofy pop quartet Stepdad.

Welcome to Kitty City

Welcome to Kitty City

It’s more like Welcome to WTF City, but don’t be a ‘fraidy cat. Some furry friends are here and more than happy to take you on a drive through the glorious metropolis they call home.

Crazy Coin Stacking

Crazy Coin Stacking

Through sheer will, determination (and perhaps a bit of an OCD), Tai Star manages to balance a stack of 3117 coins on top of a single dime. Fortunately, he doesn’t live in an earthquake zone.

Radiohead of Lettuce

Radiohead of Lettuce

We don’t know where this guy got the idea to tape pieces of lettuce together and punch holes in them so they could be used to play Paranoid Android, but this is the Internet, so we’ve stopped asking.

I Live in the Woods!

I Live in the Woods!

Max Winston’s I Live in the Woods! is a richly animated, terribly twisted tale of a woodsman’s journey, driven by happiness, slaughter, and a confrontation with the man upstairs. (Thanks Matt!)

Quantum Levitation

Quantum Levitation

Tel-Aviv U. demos the perplexing properties of quantum superconductors which will leave non-science types scratching their heads, and us wanting hoverboards made from this stuff.
