We iz serious web professionals from all different sides of the industry, with one thing that brings us together — we know a great video when we see it, and want to share great videos with others.
Five days of the week means one video a week from each of us, as follows:
The only rules we have for picking:
1) The poster can’t have been personally involved in the video’s making.
2) It has to be awesome.

Micheal Jackson. Awesome. Dance Mixes to Popular 80s hits. Awesome. Insanely slick dance moves… Do I even need to keep going? Stop reading and watch this already.
Here at HSA, we are big fans of Casey Neistat. He’s a worldly fellow who makes makes beautiful and thoughtful documentaries. So it of course makes sense that he would use his talents to unveil some of the most important moments of his life. Congrats Candice and Casey!!!
Burning Man. It’s not for everyone, but it’s beauty is. Personally, I have been five times. I hate the heat and don’t do drugs. But I love the break from reality where people actually talk to you not at you and there is no where you need to be but besides exactly where you are. It’s such a raw and haunting place filled with so much beauty (both visually and in spirit.) This series of timelapses gives you good glimpse into the wonderful and mysterious event that bring tens of thousands to the Nevada desert each year.
Singapore airport is the busiest in the world with flights taking off and landing every minute during it’s busiest hours. This timelapse was create to unearth the beauty in the bustle. As each airplane breaks into the atmosphere, it shoots across the sky like a star. Simply Stunning.
Not much to say here. It’s Simon and Garfunkel’s The Sound of Silence but robot-y! I also appreciate that it’s such a calm relaxing song remixed into a stress-y soundtrack.
My co-worker sent me this video because he’s obsessed and now I am too. I can’t even tell you why.
Viral Video Alert: Kiss My ALS
As silly as this video starts off to be, it is important to watch and learn what is actually happening here. Pouring buckets of ice over your head means something to the 30,000 people in the US with ALS who aren’t being offered a cure. I knew the disease is genetic and terrifying, but this video breaks it all down in a way that is easy (also heartbreaking) to understand.
I’ve always wondered how the BBC was able to get such amazingly beautiful up close footage of wildlife doing their wildlife thing. And this is how! It’s so cool that I don’t even want to tell you. Just watch for yourself. To me, seeing how they are filmed is twenty-fold more exciting than watching animals in the wild (which is an impressive feet).
I know, I know. Ads can do crazy things, what with their over-the-top budgets, star power, and flexible format. And sharing them just plays into their whole reason for being. But this ad for Madden ’15 is just nuts, and even though I don’t care for Madden, or sports video games, or Kevin Hart, or Dave Franco, this video has so many absurd, funny, over-the-top turns, that I can’t help myself.
