A Kony free zone, now with George Takei...
Warning! This is a Kony free zone. May I repeat, this is a Kony free zone!
If you come here looking for more bandwagon-jumping or hype-instigating you shan’t find it here. It is forbidden. No, what you will find here is a cave of overlooked Youtube treasures…
This is another short and sweet clip from Eastern Europe. It’s a piece of luckily captured action featuring two daring dogs, one of which is extremely daring, failing to be cowed by a ford focus.
The ‘extremely daring’ dog responds to the driver’s attempts to move it out of the way by biting off the front number-plate before dropping it, with disdain, onto the road. Leaving the hapless human to collect the number-plate, without a shred of dignity, and continue on his way.
Dog 1 – Human 0
4. A really cool iceberg
I must give thanks to Mother Nature for directing this wonderfully unique Youtube clip. If you like icebergs, and have a soft spot for implosions or explosions, this clip will be right up your street.
A boatload of tourists in Wilhelmina Bay, Antarctica luckily captured the self-destruction of an impressively large iceberg. And like all events of importance, there was a slow, tense build-up followed by an immaculate crescendo. The iceberg basically crumbled for a bit, and then completely collapsed, sending shards of ice screaming towards the camera and drawing applause from the delighted onlookers.
3. Original, funny, but crude
I say its original, maybe it isn’t, but I haven’t seen this prank pulled off with such aplomb anywhere else. What prank you say? Well, a perfectly well mannered fellow “tests the stream” on his water bottle to fool the police into thinking he is publicly urinating. I did say it was crude!
But I also said it was funny, and by heck it is! The reactions of the policemen as they forcefully grab our protagonist only to find-out their suspicions weren’t correct, are priceless. Enjoy!
2. Ha Ha
There is nothing like a Youtube clip that mashes up the best, or in this case worst, moments of cinema. This particular clip includes every single ‘Ha Ha’ and greeting in Tommy Wiseau’s masterpiece The Room.
I bet you haven’t heard of Mr. Wiseau or his masterful film. Before I saw this I hadn’t either. Why? Well, because The Room is considered to be one of the worst films of all time. And after watching all 69 seconds of this clip, I know why – soon you will too.
Don’t pull a muscle laughing!
1. The George Takei Happy Dance
When George Takei releases a video on the internet it is always worth watching, and yet again he has produced a hilariously endearing clip.
Having been inundated with donations to his fund-raising campaign for his Broadway bound musical Allegiance, Mr. Takei decided to share with us his ‘happy dance’.
It is Youtube gold.
