UNICEF PSA About Poop in India is Bizarre

Using characters that look like Mii avatars and roping in the talents of Life of Pi composer Shri, UNICEF have created a very strange public service announcement to persuade Indians to take their poo to the loo—after a guy wakes up from a night’s sleep he’s greeted by a giant turd, which proceeds to chase [...]

Pyro Board: Visualizing Music With Fire

The folks over at Fysikshow have upped the game when it comes to using fire to visualize music—taking the Rubens’ tube (google it) and turning it all the way up to 11, they’ve made the Pyro Board which features 2,500 holes to give fire-breathing life to whatever sound they want.

NBC AnchorMan Brian Williams Raps “Gin and Juice”

Brian Williams doesn’t immediately strike you as the kind of guy to be sipping on some gin and juice while his mind is on his money and his money on his mind—but he is in the mind of Jimmy Fallon, who remixed various newcasts of Williams on his Tonight Show to make it sound like [...]

Avril Lavigne’s New Music Video is a Real Test of Stamina

The warning’s in the song title really. Anything called “Hello Kitty” was always going to be pure ear-bleed for anyone over the age of 13, but it’s not just the music that will teach you how to hate, the video itself is all kinds of terrible (so terrible in fact, it looks like Vevo have [...]

The Breeders – Saints

OK, let’s journey back to 1994, it’s summertime and you’ve just got your hands on The Breeders track “Saints”, you’ve got your ripped jeans on, a scruffy hole-ridden t-shirt and your hair looks like it hasn’t been washed in months.

50 Cent Dubbed Over Jehovah’s Witnesses Telling Deaf People To Stop Fapping

Do deaf people masturbate too much? It’s probably not something you think about that often, but Jehovah’s Witnesses do nothing but think about it. Mainly because they are selfless individuals whose sole purpose in life (and beyond) is to help others stop touching themselves. So they brought out a video using sign language (lots of [...]

It might not be throwback Thursday or New Music Monday, but screw all that, because here’s a blast from the past from the unholy alliance of Aphex Twin and Chris Cunningham, that is probably one of the creepiest videos to ever have existed—and even though it’s now getting on a bit at nearly 20 years [...]

The Flaming Side of the Rainbow—Pink Floyd, Wizard of Oz and Flaming Lips Synced Together

We’re all familar with the old myth of Pink Floyd’s album The Dark Side of the Moon syncing with The Wizard of Oz if you play both of them at the same time, one appearing to correspond with the other.

9 Year Old Girl Covers Johnny Cash—And Other Kids Who Rock

These young ‘uns prove that rock and roll (and country and metal) don’t just have to be for the grown ups (apart from the drugs and sex of course), because the kids are pretty alright too when it comes to rocking a jam. Take the little people featured here, not content to just listen to [...]
