Hamster on a piano (eating popcorn)

Remember cats flushing toilets? Remember how I said that was what the Internet was invented for? Well never have I been more fucking wrong in my whole life. THIS is what the Internet was invented for, and nothing else. You can all go home, the Internet has been won fair and square. It’s over, done, [...]

Alien Song

There’s nothing out there except more election shite, so it’s time to return to the classics. Arguably the first ever viral ad, this deserves a place in some museum. If you’ve seen it watch it again anyway and wonder where the almosrt 10 years since you last saw it have disappeared to. If you’ve never [...]

Fast Food

To quote the guy who sent me this “Colin Furze has single handedly won the internet”. Quite. 1.30 is possibly the funniest thing on YouTube. You’ll LOL till you ROFL.

Subprime Explained

John Bird and John Fortune explain how and why the subprime crisis has come about. These two guys usually do satire, but in not in this case. As Nassim Nicholas Taleb explained in his Black Swan book, banks are full of fucking idiots who pretend to be clever in order to take massive risks with [...]

Terrible Advertising Song

Ogilvy is an advertising agency. It was founded by a guy called David Ogilvy. Apparently arounbd now is his birthday or something because the Greek bit of the agency has created this horrendous piece of shit. Your toes will curl back up into your feet when you watch it. Corporate communications train wrecks like this [...]

Obama vs McCain – The Final Battle

This rocks. Who knew that that honky McCain could rap. Wow! Maybe some people should vote for him after all. Granted, anything to do with the US election is now officially duller than ditchwater and no one cares at all (apart from a few people actually in the US) but honestly, this is worth watching.

Everyone has their own favroite lines to quote from Withnail & I,  a film full of the most rididididididididiculously quotable lines known to mankind. This is one of mine. Thanks, Mr Swede Mason, whoever you are, for celebrating it.
• We want the finest wines available to humanity, we want them here, and we want them [...]

Chubby Kid Sings About Cup Cakes

Maybe it’s because this kid is fat and has that pitifully naive look but he reminds me of the idiot child in Bad Santa. He’s probably a lovely kid, but this resemblance means that you can’t quite help thinking that whoever filmed this was laughing at the kid not with him. This makes it compelling [...]
