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.

Yup. Sounds about right. Also, high five Buzzfeed for sharing this advice that’s both universally true and free of social standards. Yes, she likes girls but it you don’t, it doesn’t make any of it less true.
When you are happy ‘The World’ sings. As do I. And apparently this band, The Family Crest.
Viral Video Alert: Everything is NOT Awesome
This Green Peace video some how makes plastic building toys emotionally heart wrenching. As a global citizen, I care about the ice caps and have heard my whole life about how oil has been destroying them. I’ve seen images of the adorable animals literally on thin ice covered in oil. That said, I’m not a political person so I can’t really speak to this specific cause. But, in my opinion, Green Peace has definitely rose to new heights when it comes to tearing at your heart strings.
Stunning shots of a craftman making scissors, lacks commentary but beautiful nonetheless. As a kid, I hated metal scissors. They felt cheap and heavy next to the newer plastic handled ones. And they gave left-handed me the worst blisters. However, watching one of the last ‘makers’ of metal scissors at work makes me miss that mundane grade school tool that I so hated.
Loving this song by Seinabo Sey. The video has a Bloody Mary meets Alice and Wonderland type thing happening. It works.
Viral Video Alert: Leaked Star Wars Film Set
Taken by a traveler flying through Frankfurt airport. Apparently, Germany’s landscape makes for the perfect desolate droid-filled future. But more importantly this fly-on-the-wall footage features live Star Wars set pieces in action!!!! As the Guardian notes, ‘the farce is strong with this one.’
The Tetris themes played on water glasses. Yes, apparently, there are still new ways to play.
Unfortunately, my dog isn’t nearly nerdy enough to pull this off, but just the mental image of her glaring at me from a Star Trek themed bed is completely hilarious to me.
Spanish ad agency Xavi Lab found a way to boost attendance at comedy clubs by charging people per laugh, with the help of some facial recognition tech.
