It’s Friday, and your Friday Videos have arrived:

What. Do. You. DO? [orchestra hit!]

Watch videos of course…

» Expiration Date

Expiration Date
This short animated film was created by Valve to promote their forthcoming Borderlands game.
It’s easily one of the most entertaining things I’ve seen in a while. Some excellent, excellent work here.

» Havana Bikes

Havana Bikes
“Cuba underwent a bicycle revolution in the 1990s during its five year ‘Special Period’.”
A fascinating little documentary.

» Drive through Boston in 1964

Drive through Boston in 1964
1964, but the description says 1958. Discuss!
I don’t live in Boston but I recognize that it has changed monumentally since then.

» The Real Lord of the Ring – Mesmerizing Street Performer! Taiwan

The Real Lord of the Ring - Mesmerizing Street Performer! Taiwan
“One ring to amaze them all. Taiwan’s famous street performer Isaac Hou blows our minds with his amazing cyr wheel performance.”
That pretty much sums it up.

Bonus Video:

» Game of Thrones – Main Theme (80’s Version)

Game of Thrones - Main Theme (80's Version)
You can also download the track as a free mp3. Steve Duzz recreates the theme from Game of Thrones as an early-80s Giorgio-Moroder-like dance cut.
Suggested by Kelly S.

Have a lovely Friday everybody…

Ahhhhh Summer…

It’s finally here!! (…in the northern hemisphere that is.)

Time for some videos!

» HI Brit by Gal Volinez

HI Brit by Gal Volinez
This guy replaces all instances of Britney Spears in the video for “Work B*tch” with himself. This must have taken quite, QUITE a long time.
Making the rounds (and deservedly so) – but extremely well done!

» OK Go – The Writing’s On the Wall – Official Video

OK Go - The Writing's On the Wall - Official Video
Another phenomenal, intricate video from this great band. All the effects are essentially “in-camera” optical illusions. Well done.
Sent along by Laura R.

» Koh Yao Noi

Koh Yao Noi
This is a beautiful, cinematic video. Love it.


“Atomium was built in Brussels in 1958 for the Brussels World’s Fair. It was designed by engineer André Waterkeyn and shaped in the form of a unit cell of an iron crystal, only enlarged 165 billion times!”
This time-lapse makes it look even more majestic.

Bonus Video:

» Words Kill Wars

Words Kill Wars
“We at ADOT.COM believe focusing on differences in each other sits at the root of discrimination and conflict, and that a shift in perspectives to acknowledging the similarities we all share is necessary in order for us to connect and for peace to prevail.”
This is a great, short, to-the-point animation.

Happy, Happy Friday, Summer friends.

See you in a week!


Jun. 13th, 2014

It’s Friday!

It’s Friday the 13th, too!

It’s time for your Friday Videos!

Let’s go!!

» form

“‘form’ is a short film I created for the REDirect contest as a tribute to the style and grace of skateboarding.”
Directed by Colin Kennedy.
Shot using a Red Epic.

» The Next Black – A film about the Future of Clothing

The Next Black - A film about the Future of Clothing
“‘The Next Black’ is a documentary film that explores the future of clothing. Watch as we meet with some of the most innovative companies on the planet to get their opinion on clothing and its future…”
This is definitely worth a look. (Assuming it doesn’t get taken down.)

» Hey Pass Me A Beer II

Hey Pass Me A Beer II
This is interesting. Much more challenging than beer pong.

» GRINDHOUSE – JAWS and STAR WARS (Trailer Mash Up)

Kiiind of a strange little chop-shop trailer, but still kind of funny. Might even be more 70’s than the originals.

Bonus Video:

» Toby the Destroyer

Toby the Destroyer
“My friend’s landlord has a smart pet crow/raven that spends its time tormenting tenants by repeating his own name and tapping on windows.”
I was unaware that ravens can mimic. That’s both creepy and fascinating.

Have a lovely Friday everybody.


Jun. 6th, 2014

Friday! Booo-yah!

Videos – here we go!

» Greatest Roommate Interview EVER!!!

Greatest Roommate Interview EVER!!!
“When the host of Running Late with Scott Rogowsky needed to find a roommate in a pinch, he did what came natural – created a talk show studio in his apartment and invited the people who answered his Craigslist ad to be his guests.”
This made my day when I found it. I think this is why I like Youtube so much.

» Árstíðir – Heyr himna smiður (Icelandic hymn) in train station

Árstíðir - Heyr himna smiður (Icelandic hymn) in train station
“‘Heyr himna smiður’ was written by Kolbeinn Tumason in 1208. The music was composed in the 1970s by Þorkell Sigurbjörnsson (1938-2013), one of Iceland’s foremost contemporary composers. Germany, September 15, 2013”
Breathtakingly beautiful.

» Showhawk Duo (Sandstorm, Bohemian Rhapsody, Pulp Fiction)

Showhawk Duo (Sandstorm, Bohemian Rhapsody, Pulp Fiction)
“Showhawk Duo perform, Sandstom, Bohemian Rhapsody and Pulp Fiction.”
Yes… yes they sure do.

» ARST ARSW: Star Wars sorted alphabetically

ARST ARSW: Star Wars sorted alphabetically
“All of the English dialogue in ‘Star Wars’, split into words, and sorted alphabetically. Fun facts: The word ‘lightsaber’ only appears once in this film. There are 43m5s of spoken English, 81m39s of other. The most common word is ‘the’, of course, said 368 times.”
What an odd, odd project. But fascinating.

Bonus Video:

» Turn Down for Spock (Star Trek Stabilized!)

Turn Down for Spock (Star Trek Stabilized!)
“Inspired by http://www.reddit.com/r/StarTrekStabilized
This is making the rounds and kind of hilarious.

Happy Friday everybody!

See you next week.
