It’s not enough that we can record videos on our phones, not for Snapchat anyway who have revealed their first piece of hardware called Spectacles, which are sunglasses that can record video. The company also announced a name change too, they’re now just known as Snap. Spectacles take from 10 to 30 second hands-free video clips that can then be uploaded to your Snapchat account.
ᑖᒻ ᔅᑳᑦ and ᖃᓂᐅᔮᖅᐸᐃᑦ—Those weird symbols may look like some kind of alien hieroglyphics but they are in fact a language here on earth. They are Inuktitut a language spoken in the Northern Canadian province of Nunavut. Here they have three official languages, english, french, and the language of the Inuits.
Tom Hanks must surely be one of the most beloved actors in Hollywood and he’s also one of the most prolific—he’s been acting for nearly 40 years and it’s been a career that’s gone from 80s comedies to Oscar-winning dramas and war movies, even romcoms. The man is versatile, that’s for sure, and he seems like he’d be a great guy to have beer with too.
Most couples, at least those in long term relationships, are extremely relaxed around each other—maybe too relaxed. But that’s part of the joy of being in a couple, a couple who have been together through the rough and the smooth. But if you were looking for a surefire way to make things awkward between you, watching hardcore porn together seems like a dead cert.
In Australia everyone has a pet kangaroo, and Aussie comedian Jackson O’Doherty shows the sorts of enrichment they can bring to people’s lives in this video. Because not only does O’Doherty have a pet kangaroo but his roo, or joey as its a baby and is called Damien, is also his best friend and they do everything together, as BFFs do.
OK so it’s not a real t-rex, not that you thought it was, but instead is pro jet skier Mark Gomez dressed in a Jurassic World t-rex inflatable costume out on his 1200cc Rickter XFR jet ski performing some of his signature moves. It would be impressive enough just watching him do these tricks on the lake normally, but dressed up like this it’s even more rad.
A railgun like those being researched by the US Navy uses a form of electromagnetic energy to hurl projectiles at speeds exceeding Mach 7. As you can imagine they’re pretty dangerous so the perfect weapon for YouTube channel ElectroBOOM (aka Mehdi Sadaghdar) to make then. After explaining how they work, Sadaghdar sets about building one.
Antonio Maria Da Silva (who’s behind those Hell’s Club mashups) pays homage to rain in the movies, because in the movies when it rains it pours. Downpours being far more cinematic than a few specks of rain, which don’t quite cut it in the dramatic stakes. So here we get rainy scenes taken from everything from The Matrix Revolutions to Point Break.
This music video is very meta indeed. It’s directed by Keith Schofield for musicians Stylo G and Jacob Plant. It starts off with a weird premise, a world where people who have no legs sees a bunch of guys chasing a pair of women’s legs—it’s then revealed that this is in fact just a music video being watched by people on YouTube. People who have no legs. People who go out to protest at the sexist video they’ve just watched.
College Humor’s latest sketch is about hat particular Facebook friend who, for some damn reason, loves nothing more than to make everyone super depressed by constantly posting sad stories they find on the internet to Facebook. Why do they do this? Well, probably because they’re like the guy in this video.
It’s a new dawn, a new day, and you’re feeling like utter crap because it’s Monday and all Mondays shall forever be horrid, as is stated in the unwritten laws of the land. But it’s OK, because there’s always Tuesday and it’s not that far off. Beyond that, Wednesday. And then the weekend is on the horizon once more. Be strong. Procrastinate. It will be over soon.
