Home Alone Injuries in the Real World

I've been wanting to post this video for a long time.

Yesterday, I was watching Home Alone (it was Christmas Eve after all) and was reminded of it.

That kid is deadly!

Collective Soul Cat Fan

I've been away long, and all I have to show for it is this cat video.

What Rappers Really Do These Days

Hoes, easy money and acting like a bunch of apes. Sums up most mainstream rap.

I don't really like rap anyway. May it die.

Guy Annoys Girlfriend With Puns At Ikea

This guy's my hero!

Donna's Dana's so cute...
She accepts the puns with so much patience (or she has completely resigned to her fate... either way it's cute).

Amazing Raw Skateboard Run

The visuals in this are like watching a videogame.

This guy (Zak Maytum) reaches almost 70mph (112kmh) going down this road in Colorado with traffic coming in the opposite direction. He is wearing some sort of aerodynamic helmet, but surely one mistake and his face could have been wiped off.

Bad choice of underwear though. That's hipsterically sad.

Key & Peele Nail Aerobic Vid Spoof

I can't let August pass without a post.

First of all, is aerobics still a thing?

In any case, this video from the 1988 USA National Aerobic Championship is utterly ridiculous.
It's so 80s it hurts. The music, the attire, the hairstyles, the TV presentation, the constant smiles.

Yap. Cocaine's one hell of a drug!

And here's Key & Peele's take on the subject.
Brilliant. Just brilliant.

Now I can't get that music out my head! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!

Smells Like Teen Shovel

It all started with this guy slipping on ice:

And we amazingly ended up with this gem:

"Look At Me Son, I'm Talking To You"

This police lieutenant from Louisiana is the most stereotypical American thing I've seen in a very long while. My Europeanness just cringed, pissed herself and hid under the bed.

"Watch, as a man commits his crime"
(I was expecting a Valar Morghulis at some point there)

So many things to comment on:
The DNA on a rock,
the hardworking and generous Stellys,
the sheriff being a fan of Stelly's,
the cheeseburger with coke and fries he'll have afterwards,
the nice tip he'll give to the waitress,
the fact that he knows nobody likes the perp.

Is he for real? Is he a cartoon? Did he come out of a movie or something?

He really makes me want to give myself up, but I haven't done anything.

Parkour Is Older Than I Thought

This footage from the 1940s (the video says 1930s, but it's mistaken), shows stuntmen John Ciampa and Arnim Dahl performing parkour-like stunts.

Drone Company's Ad Is Ridiculous

Don't get me wrong.
I like drones (until they become sentient and starting hunting us all down).
I am a proud owner of one myself, but this ad by drone maker DJI is utterly ridiculous.
(I don't own a DJI one by the way). 

And it's ridiculous because it doesn't take into account:

1) the noise drones make (no wonder these fantastic drone shot videos you find on Youtube are always dubbed with music),
2) their mass,
3) the danger from the rotating blades if you get too close, and
4) the maneuverability in a closed space (the lack thereof, as it is pretty limited unless you're a super expert).

Here's a more realistic version:

And here's the last portion of the realistic version.
It is well worth enjoying on its own.

One Second A Day Video Brings Syrian Civil War To The United Kingdom

A non-funny post this time.

The civil war in Syria has been going on for more than four years now.
The dead are around 250,000 and the misplaced are over 4.5 million, many (if not most) of them children.

What would it be like for a British child if a similar war was actually happening in the UK?
And would that make us empathize more with them than with the Syrian children being affected by a real war right now?

This very creative video by the organization Save The Children shows us and asks us to donate.
