Between Two Ferns with Zack Galifianakis

That's weird...!

I was pretty sure I had posted "Between Two Ferns" with Zack Galifianakis (by Funny or Die) before, but after searching for a bit it seems I was mistaken.

Here are three of the best:

Brad Pitt

Justin Bieber

Barack Obama

The Amazing Lyrebird

Lyrebirds are native to Australia and are known for the ability to mimic all sorts of sounds they encounter in their environment.

For example... a laser pistol. sounds (starts at 1:46).

... and well-known sitcom theme tunes (even David Attenborough is surprised).

OK... the last one's a lie (but I'm sure you knew that already).


That Mitchell and Webb Look - Reality Shows

I've been meaning to post these for a while.

Changing Meals

The Gift Shop Sketch

This bit by Charlie Brooker about clever editing is also worth a look.

10 Hours of Walking in NYC

A couple of months ago, this video was uploaded on Youtube showing a woman being harassed (or "harassed" depending on your view) while walking for 10 hours in the streets of New York.

Although it did manage to convey its message (whether you agree with it or not), the video also spawned a variety of parodies and copycats.

Here are perhaps the best:

3 Hours of Walking in NYC as a (Model) Man

10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a(n) (Average) Man

10 Hours of Princess Leia Walking in NYC

A lot more can be found with a quick search on Youtube,
such as 10 Hours of Walking:

in NYC as a Jew,
in NYC as a Lamborghini,
in Los Angeles as a Mime (wat?),
in Skyrim as a Woman in Skimpy Armor,

Just Star Trek Things

Starting off with Star Trek deshaked! (or stabilized, whichever you prefer)

And the second one in video form:

Here the Star Trek TNG cast demonstrates (starts at 3:33):

And here as demonstrated by Jeri Ryan and Wil Wheaton (starts at 21:20):

The way Riker sits down:

Worf gets denied again and again and again:

And finally, Picard gets on the Christmas song bandwagon!

How Oblivion Should Have Ended

Having just watched Oblivion (2013) I was actually visualizing the same things.

Would I recommend this movie? If you're a sci-fi fan, yes.
It does have multiple plot holes and sometimes the characters act irrationally (I prefer my sci-fi to be... realistic), so all in all I give it a 6.5/10.
