Awesome Weird

PC Building Simulator

Avengers Infinity War Weird Trailer

Avengers Infinity War Weird Trailer

As if there wasn’t already way too much going on in Avengers: Infinity War, Aldo Jones had to go and add even more characters and insanity to the film with his latest weird trailer. Honestly, we’re surprised that Shrek didn’t join the Avengers sooner.

Learning to Play the Shenanigan

Learning to Play the Shenanigan

A hilariously absurd video from Grieg Johnson which provides instruction on how to play an “ancient, elegant” musical instrument. But it’s not just the Shenanigan that’s of interest – it’s the fake Scandanavian-ish tongue that the narrator speaks in that really makes the video.

Vladimir Cauchemar: Aulos

Vladimir Cauchemar: Aulos

Russian musician Vladimir Cauchemar pops up all over the place to warm the world with the soothing and hypnotic sounds of his recorder. Kudos to director Alice Kunisue for one of the most entertaining and WTF things we’ve watched today.

Singing in an MRI

Singing in an MRI

A fascinating look at inner workings of vocalist Anna-Maria Hefele’s head and neck as she performs in a mix of regular and overtone singing. University Medical Center Freiburg, Institute for Musician’s Medicine captured a whole DVD of various vocal techniques.

The Rubber Chicken Synth

The Rubber Chicken Synth

We already know that a rubber chicken can be used to make music. But Andrew Huang amped things up with Hexinverter’s mutant rubber chicken that uses compressed air to allow it to be played electronically. This is some serious mad scientist sh*t. Crazy sounds start at 1:59.

Strangely Translated Movie Titles

Strangely Translated Movie Titles

Did you know that Thor: Ragnarok had the awesome title Mighty Thor: Battle Royale in Japan? Abroad in Japan looks at this and 20 other movies which had oddly translated titles, some which worked better than others. We love Phantom Thief Gru and the Moon Theft.

Geenie Reenie

Geenie Reenie

Two amorphous blobs – Geenie Reenie and decide to log onto their computer and check some emails. Andrew Onorato’s animated short film is a whole lot of WTF?, but it made us giggle regardless. Check out Geenie Reenie’s origin story here. Hi!

Dancing with Tiny Footsteps

Dancing with Tiny Footsteps

Berezka (“Birch” in English) is a Russian folk dance troupe who performs with an unusual style – its dancers move with such tiny and smoothly-executed footsteps that it appears they’re on wheels. Of course, their dresses are so long that they very well could be.

Parasitic Endeavours

Parasitic Endeavours

(PG-13: Nudity) A wriggling pile of heads and other body parts crawl all over each other in this bizarre, yet enthralling CGI short film by artist Simon Christoph Krenn. It’s amazing what you can do with computers these days.

Oddball

Oddball

Joshua Moore provides a wonderful profile of Stephen Parr, the man behind what is likely the world’s strangest archive film collection, Oddball Films. Sadly, Stephen recently passed away, but his family and staff plan to continue to run Oddball in his name.

Moodles

Moodles

Ari Weinkle presents a fantastically strange and wonderful computer animated short in which human figures are made of digital noodles. The director says they represent the transformation of stress and anxiety into creative catharsis, but all we know is we’re hungry for spaghetti now.

Adrift Machine 9

Adrift Machine 9

This electromechanical sound maker uses moving turntable arms to select and play grooves carved into an enormous cylinder. The positions of the arms and sounds played correspond to the positions of 27,000 pieces of space junk drifting about over our heads.

Bait

Bait

(PG-13: Language) A totally average man falls hook, line, and sinker for a cheeseburger, and ends up being interrogated by aliens looking for answers to important questions about carbon-based lifeforms. It doesn’t weirder than Daniel Bracey’s sci-fi comedy short.

Bug Puppet Gets a Face

Bug Puppet Gets a Face

Barnaby Dixon gave his amazing bug puppet a somewhat creepy, yet awesome upgrade – a tiny screen that lets him display his own face on the bug’s head. He wears a GoPro camera while operating the puppet to bring even more life to his already dynamic puppet creation.

Bill Wurtz: Outside

Bill Wurtz: Outside

“They touched me in an interesting way. And now I’m pregnant. With aliens.” Bill Wurtz sings about running away from the wind, being abducted and arresting crime. How we wish our Internet provider used his songs as on hold music.

Gold Slime in a Shredder

Gold Slime in a Shredder

It doesn’t make the kind of sticky mess that Stretch Armstrong did, but it’s still fascinating to watch this bucket of weird golden goo as it runs between every blade of PressTube’s industrial shredder. At one point, the gunk that emerges looked kind of like brains.

Gyroscopic Grill

Gyroscopic Grill

We’re not sure that spinning around your food on multiple axes like this helps it cook any faster or more efficiently, but you’ve got to hand it to whoever built this crazy grill has a creative mind and masterful build skills. Video via Weber Foods.

Nipple-stabilized Video

Nipple-stabilized Video

It’s the video clip absolutely nobody was asking for. On a sunny July day, Jake Alewel decided to ski with his shirt off, then used video post-production software to stabilize the image using his right nipple as its center point. The result is equal parts hilarious and disturbing.

Somewhere over the Theremin

Somewhere over the Theremin

This video was posted way back in 2009, but we never saw it before, so we figured some of you guys missed it too. So sit back and enjoy as musician Peter Pringle plays an oddly soothing rendition of Somewhere over the Rainbow from The Wizard of Oz.

KFC: The Hard Way

KFC: The Hard Way

KFC has a long history of creating strange and unusual commercials, but this mock virtual reality employee training game takes the prize. It’s as if BioShock and Job Simulator had a virtual baby. Seriously, the new Colonel just keeps getting creepier.

Domino’s Pizza Japan Ad

Domino’s Pizza Japan Ad

If you had any doubt that Japanese commercials are weird, tune into this ad spot for Domino’s Pizza, which includes a battle between rock and roll chickens and rapping pigs who represent four chicken-topped pizzas and four pork-topped ones. Picasso’s horse is just a bonus.

Cat Sorter VR (Teaser)

Cat Sorter VR (Teaser)

We don’t even know where to start with this ridiculous VR game, which drops you into an assembly line where they build cats. It’s your job to slap on eyeballs, tails, ears, noses, and even buttholes as quickly and accurately as you can. Coming 8/29/17 to HTC Vive.

Milky Shot

Milky Shot

Roy Kafri and Gon Ben Ari’s quirky and charming animated short follows a strange alien creature who hovers above Earth, and who quickly becomes obsessed with the most mundane of objects. The ending was a little cheesy, but it’s the journey that matters.

Binging with Babish: Taco Town

Binging with Babish: Taco Town

To celebrate his millionth YouTube subscriber, Andrew Rea of Binging with Babish decided to give a tour of his kitchen, then replicated an SNL fan favorite, the 15-layer Taco Town taco we were first introduced to back in 2005. The cook starts at 5:21. Guacamolito sauce ftw!

Time for Sushi

Time for Sushi

(PG-13) Remember that crazy Going to the Store video? Its animator David Lewandowski is back, and he’s ramped up the insanity to 11 by replacing his one wildly gesticulating naked character with hundreds. And after they stroll down the street, they head to the beach.
