Five Youtube Experiences to Brighten Your Week
|LISTS - OTHER LISTS|
Ultimate randomness, but it's great...
This fortnight I’ve brought you a group of pointless clips, and one not-so-pointless clip.
There is not one, but two pointlessly funny road incidents; a pointless but astonishing clip recorded on a toy plane; a video demolishing five pointless historical factoids and lastly; a beautiful, but sadly not pointless, piece of cinematic art.
5. Towing Failed
The music appears out of place at first, but its inclusion is a masterstroke. The slow, and subtle escape of the guilty party is also phenomenally hilarious.
It creeps up on you, the laughter. At first you don’t know what to expect as the chaos unfolds, like a Fawlty Towers episode, but before you realise it you’re in fits of laughter.
It’s short and sweet and brilliantly funny. Enjoy!
4. Unbelievable [NSFW]
Steve knows his rights. How can I be so sure? Well, he screams it in a drunken rage numerous times, atop his scissor lift. What a ridiculous series of events this police camera captures.
“Maybe I’ll come down… maybe I won’t”.
After a long, silly discussion our beleaguered policeman calls a fireman to lower the scissor lift and deprive Steve of his now shattered dignity. Steve’s continued bleating is testament to his intoxicated self-righteousness, and provides a boat-load of laughter.
3. Areal tour of New York City
This Youtube clip has no storyline; it has no hero, villain or moral message. Its just a remote controlled plane flying around New York City.
And it looks amazing.
2. Five Historical Myths
How I love debunked myths. I’m sure I posted a video similar to this eons back…I say eons when I really mean months, but ‘eons’ sounds more impressive.
This clip addresses the criminal myths of Viking helmets, Lady Godiva, Napoleon’s height, the Roman vomitoriums and Christopher Columbus’ travels.
Enjoy the education!
‘A Day in California’ is comprised of “10,000+ individual photographs”, and has been featured on CBS, NBC, CNET and many more. And now it makes its debut on Shadowlocked.com.
But what is it? It’s a short film, a time-lapse, of a day in California. The photographic style makes the people, objects and scenery appear like Aardman has moulded them out of clay.
