Friiiiday! And we’re only 24 days away from the first day of Spring. Phew!

Here we go…

» Thom Yorke has to Pee

Thom Yorke has to Pee

Not even a full week later, and we have our first repurposing of the latest Radiohead song. Oddly funny.

» ET Sequel: ET-X

ET Sequel: ET-X

Essentially a mashup non-trailer for a fictitious non-film.
This must have taken quite a bit of time. Nicely done.

» Funny Talking Animals

Funny Talking Animals

There are many promos for the BBC show “Walk On The Wild Side”. They are all hilarious.
“Alan! Alan! Alan!”

Friday! Yes please.

And where I live, it’s a long weekend. Double score.

Here we go.

» Catalina: Moullinex

Catalina: Moullinex

This video was created using an XBox 360 Kinect device to capture performances. It looks very unique. Well done. Great song as well.

» Radiohead: Lotus Flower

Radiohead: Lotus Flower

From their soon-to-be-released album “The King Of Limbs”, which you can pre-order directly from the band here.

» Locked in a Vegas Hotel Room with a Phantom Flex

Locked in a Vegas Hotel Room with a Phantom Flex

What is a Phantom Flex? It’s a camera that can shoot extremely slow-motion. It can shoot as low as 2,800 frames per second.
See also this amazing video of lightning over Chicago.

» Mr. Beam: Living Room

Mr. Beam: Living Room

“We created a unique physical 3D video-mapping experience by turing a white living room into a spacious 360° projection area.”
This is an intriguing effect.

Happy Friday people.

Beautiful. Worth it in high def.

» Tall Painting

Artist Holton Rower creates his art by pouring the paint on various objects.

» Cat Eating with Hands

Cat Eating with Hands

I have a small rule in my Friday Videos: as seldom as possible should I post cat videos. There’s just too many of them, and people send in all the same ones. But this one made me laugh, so here it is.

Happy Friday!

Friday Video Goodness. At last.

» Robot (TeztigoMix_Part 02)

Robot (TeztigoMix_Part 02)

Perhaps the best 10 minutes of solid action you will see today. Wow. Extremely well done.
This is a leaked segment of the forthcoming Indian action film namedEnthiran (Robot). It’s apparently the most expensive movie ever made in India. [Trailer available here.]

» Shaolin Monk Throwing Needle Through a Piece of Glass 2

Shaolin Monk Throwing Needle Through a Piece of Glass 2

That’s right. A needle. The higher resolution version is probably preferred.

A technical breakdown of how this was achieved is available here.

Happy Friday everybody.
