Awesome Weird

Pepsi White

Pepsi White

If you’re looking for something calming to wash down that can of Pepsi Strong Shot, you might want to try a bottle of this yogurt-flavored oddity which turned up a while back on shelves in Japan.

Burnt Toast Mona Lisa

Burnt Toast Mona Lisa

The fact that an artist named “Toastman” has been making giant artworks out of burnt toast for the last 10 years is awesome enough, but his latest, da Vinci’s classic, is a true masterpiece (of toast).

Dancing Pigeons – Ritalin

Dancing Pigeons – Ritalin

Just the very idea of a music video that features the epic conflict between flamethrower and fire extinguisher piqued our curiosity. But watching this clip in all it’s slow-mo glory is truly epic.

SMSlingshot

SMSlingshot

Berlin’s VR/Urban put together this strange contraption: a slingshot, which when fired, sends an SMS message through the air and lands it on a big screen. Weird, but cool when you see it.

Cheeseburger in a Can

Cheeseburger in a Can

We can’t think of a more delightful meal than a pre-cooked cheeseburger, vacuum-sealed inside a pop-top can. We’re pretty sure it won’t look like the burger in the photo when you open the can.

Portable Watermelon Cooler

Portable Watermelon Cooler

File this one under the “one-trick-pony” category. There’s something just so wrong it’s right about this ridiculous Japanese invention that’s perfect for cooling a watermelon, or maybe a head.

Pay & Sit Bench

Pay & Sit Bench

Ever go out on a nice day to sit outside with your lunch, only to find every damned park bench is occupied already? Pay & Sit: The Private Bench puts an end to that problem.

Jell-O San Francisco

Jell-O San Francisco

Liz Hickok creates scale models of urban sites (like San Francisco here) entirely in Jell-O. Luminously glowing, the fragile medium bears odd similarities to the city’s uncertain geological landscape.

Nomadic Sound System

Nomadic Sound System

This musical performance art piece consists of nine people wearing self-contained audio systems, moving together or individually to create an ever-changing, human surround-sound system.

Trailer: Alien vs. Ninja

Trailer: Alien vs. Ninja

This indie from Japan has massive sword fights, space aliens with big pointy teeth, dayglo magenta blood spurts and cheesy Japanese-to-English subtitled dialogue. What’s not to like?

Beer Bottle Limbo

Beer Bottle Limbo

Check out this 90 second clip of a dude named Emperor Duke doing the limbo under 8″ beer bottles. Yep, you read that right. The yoga looks like it’s really paying off. (Thanks Chris!)

The Astroghini

The Astroghini

The unholy offspring of minivan and exotic car, it’s one of the stranger vehicles to hit eBay in some time. The mutant 1994 Astro has a thrilling 4.3 liter turbo V-6 and 211,615 miles on the odo.

“Handsome Guy” Mask

“Handsome Guy” Mask

We thought the weird looking dude in this video was a CGI effect, but it’s an insanely hyper-real silicone mask from the guys at SPFXMasks. If we saw this guy on the street, we’d run the other way.

Gotta Catch ‘Em All

Gotta Catch ‘Em All

Danny Fong must REALLY love Pokémon (or is the plural Pokémons)? His insane A capella performance is bound to blow up on the viral charts this week. Seriously, what’s with all the v-necks?

OK Go vs. The Muppets

OK Go vs. The Muppets

OK Go and the Muppets were out at the Webby Awards, and something funny happened backstage. OK Go drummer Dan Konopka got into an epic staring contest with Animal. Guess who won?

Matchstick Sculpture Art

Matchstick Sculpture Art

Self-described Scottish “materials junkie” David Mach creates detailed sculptures using tens of thousands of matchstick heads. Bonus: some pieces are set aflame at art exhibitions.

National Moustache Champion

National Moustache Champion

Larry McClure isn’t just any old guy. He’s the proud winner of the very first National Moustache Competition. It’s one spectacular masterpiece of facial hair. We kid you not.

The History of the Typewriter

The History of the Typewriter

Remember Michael Winslow? You know, the guy with the stupid sound effects in the Police Academy flicks? Well, here he is doing what he does best. Here’s your 21 minute history lesson for the day.

Short Film: I lived on the Moon

Short Film: I lived on the Moon

Sit back, chill out, and let your mind drift as you watch Yannick Puig’s beautiful, poetic animation for French recording artists Kwoon. From the looks of things, the moon is a very strange place.

The Real Iron Man

The Real Iron Man

We don’t remember Tony Stark pulling off these crazy moves in either of his movies, but this dry-cleaner in Indonesia certainly knows how to press clothes with style – and lots of steam.

Smart Car + Monster Truck

Smart Car + Monster Truck

Put ’em together and whaddya get? This monstrosity, called the forfun2 – a tiny little 2-seater atop giant monster-truck wheels, cranking out a whopping 84bhp. See it in action here.

37 (or so) Twinkie Ingredients

37 (or so) Twinkie Ingredients

If you thought the list of ingredients in a Hostess Twinkie sounded unappetizing, wait ’til you see the essence of the Twinkie deconstructed into its most basic elements by Dwight Eschiliman.

The Shrub Rover

The Shrub Rover

We don’t know why he built a car inside of a bush, but Justin Shull’s Terrestrial Shrub Rover makes us think of Monty Python. Perhaps it’s a good way to meet those Knights’ shrubbery demands. Ni!

Gothic and Lolita Psycho

Gothic and Lolita Psycho

Warning. If blood and guts gross you out, do not watch this clip. If you’re like the rest of us, crank it up and get ready to watch 2 minutes of the most over-the-top Japanese splatterfest you’ll ever see.

Monsterbike

Monsterbike

Clearly not the most practical of personal transportation vehicles, this crazy-looking bike gets its front wheel from a monster truck tire. Other than that, it’s completely normal, right?

Trailer: Norwegian Ninja

Trailer: Norwegian Ninja

We had no idea they had Ninjas in Norway, but Kommandør Treholt & Ninjatroppen tells the story of how Cmdr. Arne Treholt and his Ninja Force saved Norway during the Cold War. Go figure.
