Hitler Reacts to the Hitler Parody Videos Being Removed

I saw one or two of the Hitler “Downfall” parodies a long while ago, had a few chuckles, and sort of forgot about them. The scene centers around the specific moment when Hitler realizes that the war is truly lost, and his progression from disbelief, rage and, ultimately, defeat. The audio is in German, but the remixes have taken liberties…

Japanese Soccer Team vs. 100 School Kids

A while ago, there was an Internet meme centered around the question: How many 5 year olds could you take in a fight? In a similar vein, this is a video clip of a professional soccer team, taking on a team of 100 school kids. Hilarious! Japan, you are a magical country. FYI – lots of additional clips (and specific…

Vimeo: 25 Favorite Videos of 2009

Vimeo has posted their 25 Favorite Videos of 2009. I’m slowly going through them, and really enjoying the quality of both the videos and the stories within each. So far, my favorite has been the music video for “Luv Deluxe,” by Cinnamon Chasers. Interesting sidenote: one of the videos to make the list was something I mentioned on the blog…

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

Wow! Just learned there’s a new Terry Gilliam movie coming out! It’s called The Imagniarium of Doctor Parnassus. You may know Gilliam from some of his earlier films (Time Bandits, Brazil, 12 Monkeys, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) or possibly his even earlier involvement with Monty Python’s Flying Circus. I remember Time Bandits as a kid, and have had…

The TV Show: Impossibly Meta Music Video Animation

The TV Show, a music video by Sugimoto Kousuke, is a sight to behold. What starts off as separate scenes slowly combines to produce an incredibly frenetic, fast-paced blur that will have you slowly smiling (and will have your jaw slowly dropping) over the course of 3 minutes. Stellar stuff. [via MetaFilter]

Clay Shirky Video: How Technology is Shaping Groups and Conversations

I’ve just spent the past 20 minutes totally sucked in to this video of Clay Shirky, talking about the ways technology and the Internet are changing the way we communicate. Here’s a taste: “What matters here isn’t technical capital, it’s social capital. These tools don’t get socially interesting until they get technologically boring. I tisn’t when the shiny new tools…

Bathtub IV: Delightful Tilt-Shift Video with Helicopter

I’m not one who generally gets all hot and excited by tilt-shift stuff, but this particular video successfully won me over. At first, watching it I was thinking “ok, this is nice, this is neat.” But when the subject matter shifts to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter (around 1:02), it becomes an entirely different video. And it’s got a great soundtrack…

Live Stage Version of Star Trek Episode: Spock’s Brain

Using some sketches and a whole hell of a lot of persistence, Mike Carano convinced all the necessary Paramount studio execs (as well as Nimoy and Shatner) to let him stage a live version of the Star Trek episode Spock’s Brain. The result? A whole lot of live action awesomeness. The timing of the cast is absolutely hysterical, and the…

News Anchors Dance During Commercial Breaks: WGN’s Robert Jordan and Jackie Bange’s Two Minute Drill

WGN-TV news anchors Robert Jordan and Jackie Bange have a little routine they do, during their first commercial break. What began as a 10 second dance morphed into a fully choreographed 2:40 routine. Apparently, this happens each time they go on air, during the first commercial break. Hysterical. [via Gapers Block and Chicago Tribune] // Edit: This used to be…
