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.
Who knew dumping a bucket of ice over your head could be this nerdy?
This is beautiful, original, and inspiring. I’d be willing to stand still for three hours to have my image live on hidden in the details of a painting.
Making a classic song new (or in this case old) again isn’t a new thing. In fact, Post Modern Jukebox has been at it for over four years. Traditionally, the group would perform their remixed renditions in their living room. But apparently, the landlord wasn’t too cool with that. In an effort to keep things going while they plan their ‘eviction tour’, they’ve released this jazzy number. Ordinarily, I’m not a huge fan of their videos (which have been quite popular over the years) but the addition of the new setting and cinematography has me sold.
Combine a highend bass set up and love of vaping and magic. The bass makes the puff of smoke that surrounds you dance.
Watching this video I get a creepy, crawly vision of a future where these creatures crawl around like pests patrolling the city. The future of robotics is awesome and insanely scary.
