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:
(Note: We post to Tumblr on a one day delay)
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.

This video is all show and no tell, but really everything you need to know is in this title. Iris skateboards takes old stickered up retro style skateboards, strips them down to the raw wood, and builds new boards out of them. And of course, after you make a skateboard…you need to ride it.
I was looking at your day, and I was like, heh, your day could use some beautiful cinematography and chill Moby tunes. And I was right. Enjoy.
I’m not a music connoisseur, nor do I know anything about the symphony, but I’m fairly certain that the Games of Thrones theme is played by an orchestra (or at least a digital version of one). So I find it pretty impressive to see four people play the sounds of a hundred. Over the past year or so, I’ve seen a number of cool covers to this track. It’s been played on violin, floppy disks, and electric harp. It’s been crowd sourced, mashedup, metalized, and sung by cats. But rarely have I seen it played by a few musicians ‘rocking out’ as they sweat to the hectic rhythms of this nerdy tune.
Warning: (probably) not safe for work (without headphones).
I generally shy away from anything crude or blatantly sex-related, but this new music video by Reggie Watts, seemed like a suitable exception. There is something amazingly vintage (remember when they could ‘talk about sex on the radio’) meets modern hipster that tickles my fancy. Also I find both the song and the video to be strangely hypnotizing.
It doesn’t matter who broke your heart more — Rose Tyler or Amy Pond — any Doctor Who fan can identify with this rap ode to sci-fi’s most crey-inducing series.
I don’t know how I haven’t seen or heard of this before but I love it! Every Monday ADHD releases a new cartoon and they are all awesome. I’ve just watched six and I’ll likely watch a dozen or so more. According to their YouTube channel, ADHD will run as a series on FOX starting this summer. I’m not sure if these cartoons are teasers for the show or a sample of what we can expect in a 22 minute format but either way, I’m excited. Finally, there’s show that fits my sense of humor (fact-based, not mean or judgy) and my attention span. Ok, now that you’re interested, here’s one more.
This one didn’t really have me until the bit with Cinderella, about 30 seconds in. But once it got me, it got me good. Well played, CollegeHumor.
Ever wonder how you’d haircut in space? A Flowbee of course! Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield shows of how he ‘gets his hair did’ at ZeroG in the ISS: International Space “Salon”.
A quadcopter in a cage flying through tesla coils?! I don’t know what possessed anyone to want to try this but it looks pretty awesome.
Obviously, being a bad ass comic book movie (that costs $200 million dollars to make), Iron Man is the ultimate eye candy that breaks the barrier of that is possible (thanks CGI!). So I was pretty impressed when I bumped into this homemade trailer that recreates the trailer shot by shot. Granted, some of it looks a bit cheesy (you can see strings pulling the cardboard mask), but the fact that Cinefix pulled it off with common real word object and clever editing is fairly remarkable.
