Diners at a Santa Monica, California Denny’s received some unexpected entertainment with their breakfast recently when Hollywood icon (and possible immortal) Dick Van Dyke and his a capella group The Vantastix spontaneously burst into song.
Their impromptu rendition of “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” was obviously well received, based on the applause and heavy smartphone presence, and will no doubt serve as some of the best free advertising Denny’s could ask for. Watch the video below. [click to continue…]
Evan Booth recently MacGyvered the crap out of a Keurig K350 Coffee Maker by transforming it into a bionic hand (which he named Hedberg). The project took 200 hours, and Hedberg comes entirely from that single coffee maker save for adhesives and a 12v external power supply. Fortunately for us, that 200 hours has been condensed into a 5-minute timelapse video of the building process that features a look at Hedberg in action. Watch it below. [click to continue…]
Stop-motion artist yelldesign has redefinied the term “food artist” with a series of videos showing representations of a variety of different foods being created with paper.
Dubbed “Papermeals”, the videos include dishes such as penne with meatballs, ramen, fish & chips and a banana split – all of which will no doubt trigger drooling despite the fact that they are completely inedible. Check out the videos below. [click to continue…]
In order to celebrate national hot dog month, YouTuber “Let’s Melt This” placed a hot dog on a bed of thermite along with containers of ketchup, mustard and relish and lit it up.
The thermite, which burns at temperatures exceeding 4,000 degrees Fahrenheit, promptly reduced the containers to molten piles of plastic goo while transforming the dog itself into a hot dog-shaped charcoal briquette.
Watch it unfold in the video below. [click to continue…]
It is only slightly less insane when you know what’s happening.
In order to celebrate their 58th anniversary, Ramen manufacturer Nissin Foods is rolling out a series of special commercials. The first portrays Ramen-creator Momofuku Ando as a samurai warrior, while the second pays homage to popular online videos of the past year, and is entirely baffling. First off, this is the title:
The video offers a total of 20 corresponding “buzz points” that can be spotted by turning on the captions (“cc” box) in the video below.
The goal is to show original Chikin Ramen’s staying power in a world full of fads and trends. We would say mission accomplished. [click to continue…]
If you visit the Hoover Dam and are in the mood for a simple science experiment, grab a bottle of water and try to pour it over the dam. You’ll find that the super strong draft generated by the structure causes the stream to flow upwards, as revealed in the video below. Fun! [click to continue…]
First there was Beer Pong. Then there was Halo. Then there were people trying to recreate Beer Pong in Halo (but oddly, no one trying to do it the other way ’round). Now, with Halo 5: Guardians, the dream has been perfected – Beer Pong in Halo, with actual balls being thrown into actual cups. You can even make the cup you scored in disappear too thanks to a handy interface.
Now, this reporter hasn’t actually ever played Beer Pong, but I did once get the high score on a Pong arcade machine while considerably more than three sheets to the wind, so that probably has to count for something. Also that might actually be a lie. You’ll never be able to find out! Check out a video of the map in action below along with download links. [click to continue…]
Just in time for the upcoming release of Jason Bourne, GQ’s Jim Moore met up with Matt Damon to go over the finer points of staging a movie fight – in this case, a movie fight in a bar.
Of course, for film, the moves are all staged and the process is described as more like a dance between partners than an actual fight. As you’ll see, breakaway bottles stand in for the real thing, and perspective is used to hide space between a fist and a face. In fact, everything is fake, including the bar and the martini used for the final toast. Everything is a lie people. Check out the video below. [click to continue…]
YouTuber “HellthyJunkFood” has recreated a Canadian favorite in the form of Bacon Wrapped Deep Fried Poutine.
For the uninitiated, Poutine consists of French fries and cheese curds topped with a light brown gravy. As the name confirms, this incarnation includes a date with bacon and the fryer and reportedly packs a whopping 1,300 calories.
Check out the mouthwatering video below to see it come together. [click to continue…]
I’ve been playing Pokémon Go for a week or so now, and while I’m becoming something of an expert at catching them, I still have a few questions about these crazy creatures. Like, how the heck do they eat?
Thankfully, Wassabi Productions came up with this highly researched video that shows us how all the best Pokémon get their grub on. Prepare for weirdness. [click to continue…]
