Loony Street Fight

Loony Street Fight

While it never does come to fisticuffs, it’s still the best fight we’ve seen all week. The first rule of crazy old Brazilian guy Fight Club is: you don’t talk about crazy old Brazilian guy Fight Club.

Skwerl

Skwerl

(NSFW: Language) For the first 30 seconds of this clip, we thought we were losing our hearing, or our minds. But you’ll soon realize this short is made up almost entirely of gibberish. Or is it just Simlish?

I Like Trains

I Like Trains

If you love the asdfmovie series, then you’ll probably enjoy this animated music video from the same warped mind of TomSka. In case you haven’t figured it out, it’s about a boy who… likes trains.

Scandybars

Scandybars

A tumblr that posts nothing but scanned cross-sections of – you guessed it – candy bars. We’d like to volunteer to dispose of the samples. Like sandwiches more? The Internet’s got your back.

How to Open a Door

How to Open a Door

Are you trapped in your room? Looking for a way out? Watch and learn from this 1979 Finnish instructional video. Still lost? Try turning on the captions for some extra assistance.

Zombinladen (Fake Trailer)

Zombinladen (Fake Trailer)

(NSFW: Language) One of the entries in a Panic! Cinema contest, Zombinladen is a very silly – and very gory – B-movie style take on an undead Osama Bin Laden. Kittens fans, avert your eyes.

Bomb Rocking Horse

Bomb Rocking Horse

Clearly inspired by Slim Pickens’ dramatic descent near the end of Dr. Strangelove, you (or your kids) can now ride your very own bomb, without risk of it exploding. (Product link is in German.)

Thumb Replaced by Big Toe

Thumb Replaced by Big Toe

James Byrne accidentally severed his left thumb while sawing wood. Doctors failed to reattach it, so they replaced it with his left big toe instead. An acceptable – if unsettling – compromise.

Real-Time Face Replacement

Real-Time Face Replacement

It’s not as seamless as the exchange between Travolta and Cage in Face/Off, but Arturo Castro and Kyle McDonald’s real-time face substitution is still pretty crazy. Kyle’s freaky variant is here.

Kiddex Juice Drink

Kiddex Juice Drink

Ok, between the creepy mom and the even more disturbing talking doll, this fake ad for a children’s juice drink has got all the makings for a lifetime of nightmares, starting tonight. Yeesh.

Jala Neti World Championship

Jala Neti World Championship

Jala Neti is a yogic technique used to clean the nasal passages and alleviate pain, generally done by passing a saline solution from one nostril to the other. And now it’s a competitive endeavor.

Umlala: My PDF Files

Umlala: My PDF Files

The funny thing about this video is that we never really do learn how to convert our PDFs to JPGs, but at least we learn what Keyboard Cat would look like as a robot. (Thanks, Gabriella!)

Going to the Store

Going to the Store

(PG-13: clothing-challenged) Huh? David Lewandowski made this video for the final episode of Everything, Channel101’s anthology series, and we think the world needs to see this. (Thanks Jon!)

World’s Shortest Train

World’s Shortest Train

It doesn’t hold many passengers, but on the other hand the wait at this train crossing is about as good as it gets. Maybe this is what they the Monopoly guys were thinking of with the “Short Line.”

Poses

Poses

“Real” women pose like models in public places, garnering mostly perplexed reactions in Yolanda Dominguez’ clever criticism of the “absurd and artificial world” presented in fashion magazines.

Lobster Shell Motorcycles

Lobster Shell Motorcycles

We’ve seen motorcycle sculptures made from some unusual materials, but we can honestly say this is the first time we’ve seen one made from a crustacean. Shellfish allergy? No ride for you.

Nuclear Wunderland

Nuclear Wunderland

Located in Kalkar, Germany, Wunderland theme park is built on the site of an abandoned nuclear power plant. The highlight of the visit – besides glowing – the swing inside the cooling tower.

Gollum Ringbearer

Gollum Ringbearer

Confused? This is from the Australian show Four Weddings, where brides attend each other’s weddings and rate them for a chance at a luxury honeymoon. They edited out the riddle game.

Hair Castles

Hair Castles

Agustina Woodgate used human hair to create two medieval structures. She molded the hair into bricks to create the Tower, while she combined them into massive clumps for the Sand Castle.

Cat Pops a Wheelie

Cat Pops a Wheelie

We’re not quite sure what we’re seeing here, but this kitty gets so spooked that he makes a hasty (and unconventional) break for it. VFX? Hidden wires? Weird cat? You decide. Get the .gif here.

The Splendiferous Barfing Cup

The Splendiferous Barfing Cup

Who says you need cats, rainbows, or Rick Astley to create a new Internet phenomenon? Sometimes all it takes is a styrofoam cup, some soda pop, and a few (in)appropriate sound effects.

Dancing Squid Bowl

Dancing Squid Bowl

Remember the creepy pizza toppings?  This is much weirder. Apparently this is a popular dish in Hakodate in northern Japan. The sodium in the soy sauce is responsible for this freaky food.

Paternoster Lifts

Paternoster Lifts

Modern day elevators are pretty safe, but did you know that in Europe, they have insane lifts that don’t stop between floors? You’ll need to be quick unless you want to have your body cut in half.

Urine Recycling Kit

Urine Recycling Kit

Looks like we can stop worrying about the polar ice caps and water contaminants now that NASA has developed a forward osmosis urine conversion kit. Space Shuttle Atlantis‘s crew will get first drink.

Hole in the Wall²

Hole in the Wall²

See that loose brick in the middle? Stuart Ashen stumbled upon this wall in Jurnet’s Bar in Norwich, UK while shooting video for a project. Prepare your best Xzibit impersonation and watch the vid.

Last Donut of the Night

Last Donut of the Night

Directors Tuomas Vauhkonen and Jeremias Nieminen take us on a visually and aurally compelling journey to a Lahti, Finland for a little visit with the local police force.
