  • Early on in Predator's special effects tests, a couple big changes were made. Firstly, the titular character's look was totally overhauled from a design that initially had a long head, big glowing eyes, and a woeful lack of dreadlocks. Secondly, they had to take Jean-Claude Van... / Continue →

    This is a video of BaneCat plotting revenge on his owner. Probably for making him wear that costume in the first place. I tried putting a costume on one of my cats once. ONCE. Then he killed me and now I'm a ghost. *rattling chains* BooOOoooOOoo! "You're not a ghost." N... / Continue →

    OMG I love playing the floor is lava! This is 'Action Movie Kid', a series of twelve short videos (they'll play in a row as a playlist) featuring a 3-year old on adventures that his dad has added special effects to. They're all pretty cute. There is very little video footage... / Continue →

    This is a video created by Hungarian animation firm Delov Digital featuring Chuck Norris one-upping Jean Claude Van Damme's Volvo leg-split commercial. It's not real though, it's all CG -- including Chuck. Still, I bet you show it to your mom and convince her it's real. "If ... / Continue →

    A-ha's 1985 music video for 'Take on Me' is one of the best ever made. Granted I don't really keep up with current music videos, but in my mind they're all CG and ass shaking. "What's wrong with ass shaking?" There is nothing wrong with ass shaking. This is the Doctor Who 5... / Continue →

    This is a short video of clips from Star Trek: The Next Generation edited together so the cast sings 'Let It Snow' (technically, 'Make It So'). At least that's what the first half of the video is. The second half is the guy who edited it talking about a video game he's develo... / Continue →

    This is a video from Western Australia of a sea eagle who steals a wildlife camera from a crocodile trap on the Margaret River and takes it for a flight. Crocodile traps are pretty high on my list of things I won't steal from. The camera was eventually found some 68-miles fro... / Continue →

    This is a video of Aaron 'Wheelz' Fotheringham demonstrating his extreme wheelchairing skills. He does all kinds of stuff: wheelies, backflips, handplants, rail-grinds, you name it. "Shot out of a cannon?" I don't think that's a wheelchair trick. Still, you point me to a ca... / Continue →

    Seen here in the process of insulting an old man's choice of koozy, this is BatDad's fourth Vine compilation video. It's fine and all, I'm just starting to wonder when these things are going to end. My guess is never, at least not until the concept has been run into the groun... / Continue →

    This is a commercial for Honda's CR-V filled with a bunch of optical illusions. Because that's how you get people to trust your company -- by tricking them. Now how am I suppose to know this alleged safety record of yours isn't just an illusion? It's all fun and games until ... / Continue →

    This is a short video created by Youtube user adamanimates of Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes dancing around in the woods. It's good. Plus I liked the song. The whole thing really brightened my day. And I needed that because my day has been pretty dark so far. I don't w... / Continue →

    This is a verrrrrrry worthwhile video of some beautiful/trippy projection mapping on two moving white boards that make them appear like 3D objects. I suck at explaining things though so you're really just going to have to watch the video to understand. There aren't any specia... / Continue →

    Mommy, are those bees wrestling? This is a rare video of a queen bee and drone caught mating midflight. The drone dies during the process though, which is how I want to go out too. Fun fact: when I asked my parents about the birds and the bees my dad told me one builds nests... / Continue →

    This is a series of Vine videos of feline internet stars Lil Bub and Grumpy Cat meeting each other for the first time at the Internet Cat Video Festival in Minneapolis. They really do make a perfectly ridiculous looking match. Wait -- Internet Cat Video Festival? I don't eve... / Continue →

    This is the United States of P0rnhub searches (previously: P0rnMD's data, including different countries). It shows the most popular search term from each state according to the streaming site's data (links to all the data including the top three search terms per state). As yo... / Continue →

    Note: Turn the mute off unless you just want to make up your own words. This is a short Vine video (because they all are!) from Tara Strong (Harley Quinn in Batman: Arkham City) of she and Mark Hamill (The Joker in Batman: The Animated Series as well as the recent video games)... / Continue →

    This is The Pixel Painter, a cute/sweet/heartwarming documentary about Hal Lasko, a 97-year old retired graphic designer who's partially blind and spends up to 10-hours a day creating beautiful art pieces in Microsoft Paint, pixel by pixel. When I retire? I'm not creating an... / Continue →

    Note: Please, try to keep the metal metal band jokes to a minimum. This is a video of the robotic band Compressorhead practicing in the garage of some human they likely killed. Unfortunately (or is it?), as somebody pointed out in the video's comments, you can really only hea... / Continue →

    In other news, run over cats are up 400%. An animal adoption charity in New Zealand has successfully taught several dogs how to drive (including steering, shifting in and out of park, and pedal use) to prove to potential adopters how smart dogs are and how you could never in a... / Continue →

    This is a claw machine in a Russian arcade that some cat has decided to call home. Or maybe it's an actual prize, I dunno. What I do know is there's no way in hell you'll ever pick that kitty up with THAT WEAK-ASS CLAW. You'll have to lure him down into the prize bin with tr... / Continue →
