Traffic Regulates Itself in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia

Look ma, no traffic lights!

Entertaining, but at the same time depressing, considering that this is a central square in the capital of a country with more than 90 million inhabitants, and which is above average in terms of development compared to other African countries.

Africa has a long way to go (don't worry, I'm not judging just based on this video).

Johnny Express

So many short animations out there, produced as projects by art students or by small studios in order to showcase their work. Many times they are graphically beautiful, but the script is below par. Other times the exact opposite happens.

As a result, I don't often post short animations, but when I do, it's because... they're good.

Streetfighter Mike Tyson

Although I played my share of Streetfighter back in the day (probably not as much as I would have liked), I admit I didn't remember a character named Balrog, known in Japan as M. Bison, who was based on Mike Tyson (Mike Tyson... M. Bison, get it?) (but named Balrog so as not to have to pay royalties).

The M.Bison I remember is this guy, portrayed in the dreadful movie by the late Raúl Juliá (who was actually an asset to the movie).

In any case, here, Youtube user Vogey mashes up Streetfighter sound effects with footage of Mike Tyson fighting. They blend very nicely.

Here are some handpicked ones. You can find more such videos in the above Youtube account.

Both GIF and sound sources can be found in the "about" section of the videos at Youtube.

After watching the last one... you know you want this! I certainly did.
