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.

I’m normally not one for the whole same story seven different ways thing, but I found this parody of Hollywood directors styles to be spot on. The Wes Anderson and Scorsese Christmas days made me giggle. So formulaic, so true!
…that runs on air! This is amazing. Now I know what I will be putting on my Christmas list (hint: more Legos).
First off, the whole concept of urban skiing is pretty bad ass. But, seeing for myself some of the more rundown spaces of a once thriving city was really shocking to me (as were the backflips). This video is a segment of a full length movie by Poor Boyz Productions so if you haven’t had enough of skiers hitting the bricks, you should check out more of their stuff.
Whoever the 20-something social media strategist who convinced Sesame Street that this was an awesome idea, thank you. Because it is. Over the past year or so Sesame Street studios has been parodying popular movies and television shows while staying true to their roots and teaching children with (muppets..er…) monsters. Clever titles in this series include Cookies of the Caribbean, Birdwalk Empire, and Upside Downtown Abbey. One of the most popular and my personal favorite is The Hungry Games – Catching Fur.
Professional Weirdo, Jimbo Matison hand-made this music video for his friends, the Bloodthirsty Butchers, a punk band from Japan. When their frontman, Hideki (Yoo) Yoshimura, passed away earlier this year, Jimbo dove into a tribute for the band in the form of a sweet, cardboard, stop-motion music video, complete with a lot of psychedelic weirdness, and a moment of silence for Yoo.
Mashup + Cats + Eclectic Method… this is a recipe for success that clearly no one caught on to. Take note of it’s awesome because it truly is.
This animation consists of 12,597 handmade aquarelle paintings, each painting is approximately 1,5*3cm in size. Together they form my 35 minute long paraphrase on the motion picture Blade Runner (1982) by Ridley Scott.
According to Anders Ramsell, the artist behind this beautifully executed homage, ‘Blade Runner – The Aquarelle Edition’ follows the original movie´s storyline but he took liberties to change things. “It was never my intent to make an exact version of the movie, that would fill no purpose. Instead I wanted to create a something different and never before seen — The Aquarelle Edition.”
Because the world is full of good things. Thank you, Jimmy Kimmel. We owe you one.
