"Who's on First?"

Jimmy Fallon along with Billy Crystal and Jerry Seinfeld re-enact Abbott and Costello's classic comedy sketch "Who's on First?".

The other two guys are "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" head writer A.D. Miles (What) and the announcer of the same show Steve Higgins (Costello Part).

The applause for Jerry Seinfeld lasted a bit longer than it should have and ruined the momentum a little bit, but still the sketch was quite well done.

And here's the original from 1945 (although it was first performed as a routine in 1938).

Russian Floating Dancers

Dancers from the Russian dance troupe "Berezka" move in a very fluid manner, providing quite a mezmerizing spectacle.

Are we absolutely certain they're not on segways? ;ppp

I'm Santa and I Know It

Another great song parody from the Key of Awesome!
This is from last December, but it's the time of the year when it becomes relevant again.

Black Friday San Diego Airport Landings

All November 23rd 2012 (Black Friday) landings at San Diego airport from 10:30 to 15:00, skillfully condensed into a 26 second full-blown airplane invasion.

Worth watching in full screen, HD.

So many Southwest Airlines planes!
(or could it be a false impression due to their characteristically weird colour scheme?)


Here are all the departures from San Diego Airport on December 27th 2012 from 10:45 to 16:45.

"It's Showtime!" (supercut)

You thought I had given up on KappaD, huh?
Didn't you?

(Who am I talking to?)

No. I just had some important business to attend to.
Now I'm back and... it's showtime!!!

Afro Ninja!!!

Pikachu's Flatulence

I've been meaning to post this for a long time.
It's hilarious ("What? Nooooo.....").

I never liked Pokémon, but I never really watched it either.
I think it was the first cartoon that made me say "look at the crap kids are watching these days... when I was a kid, we watched quality cartoons..."

Poland (time-lapse)

I haven't posted a time-lapse video for some time now.
So, here's Poland.

It's amazing how quickly some ex-communist countries have adopted and adapted to the modern economy and it's also nice to see them retain their traditional architecture. Some of these buildings are hundreds of years old and yet are still inhabited.

Perhaps it's time in my country (Greece) for us to bring down the ugly, concrete monsters that are the apartment blocks from the '50s and '60s and leave some room for us to breathe. A few parks would be a good start. When the crisis is over... and uncorrupted people with a vision are finally elected...

15 Hand-Picked 5-Second Films

I'm a bit of a fan of 5-second films
So, it's no surprise that they've been featured in this blog before (here and here). 
Their films consist of 2-second intro - 5 seconds of film - 1-second outro.
They don't always hit the mark, but below are fifteen 5-second films that I believe do.
Hmmm, despite them being fifteen, this should only take 2-3 minutes of your time. 

1. Water

2. Planking

3. Metal Detector

4. Late For Work

5. Magnum π

6. Photographic Memory

7. Mr. Forgetful

8. Unbeatable

9. My Almost Psychic Friend

10. Riddled With Kisses

11. The New Neighbour's Sound Check

12. Captain's Order

13. Death Ray From Space

14. New Voting Method

15. Ways to Say No (And Still Be Cool)
