Video content just seems to get better and better every week. I know that's not necessarily true, but this week there seemed to be so much to choose from. The compilation below shows what works when it comes to video: we have funny, amazing, shocking, and sexy all rolled into a nice little package here, and that's just with David Beckham. He's a tough act to follow, for sure, but the videos below certainly do a good job of capturing your attention, your imagination, and perhaps, will inspire you to make your own piece of greatness in the future.
Fun Video Friday for February 8, 2013
I promised you David Beckham, you get David Beckham. While I might have preferred to see an attractive woman in this ad, I don't ever want to keep anything from the ladies in these video comps, so don't ever say I didn't do anything for you. Directed by Guy Richie, this ad is selling body wear from H & M. I'd say it does its job. Pay careful attention, the video has a lot more going on than Beckham's superior genetics:
Champion eater Kobeyashi doesn't win the Hot Dog Eating Contest on July 4 anymore, but that doesn't mean he can't still put food away, as this video demonstrates (with some bad language):
OK, that was awesome…but can he beat a toddler playing hoops? Some videos make you feel like you're being had, and this is one, but it'll still make you smile:
This baby won't wake up for any song…except one in particular:
If you want to send your favorite toy somewhere, why not space?
Sometimes, you out-think yourself when it comes to the morning drive to work, as this short animated film from "acmchei" illustrates:
OK, so I said this was "Fun" Video Friday and I meant that. But be prepared for horror from director Guillermo Arriaga, a filmmaker who wrote screenplays for Alejandro González Iñárritu (Amores Perros, Babel, 21 Grams) and here gives us Broken Night for Nikon (it was shot by master cinematographer Janusz Kaminski):
OK, lighten up. Barely Political's "Key of Awesome" parodies One Direction and their song "Kiss You:"
How to be Daniel Radcliffe, from Daniel Radcliffe:
This hilarious fake documentary has a scientist talking about how insane roller coasters can increase IQ. The special effects in this one serve up the funny. I think these rides are something very few people would actually ride, but would love to watch others doing so:
Improv Anywhere took their act to Grand Central Station again, lighting up the lobby with their cell phones for the landmark's 100th birthday:
Red Bull offers more awesome content with the assembly of a race car:
As always, I like to throw great educational content into the mix, and Veratasium asks the question, "Why do venomous animals seem to like hot weather?" The discoveries in the video…may surprise you:
The great VSauce asks, "Will we ever visit other stars?":
Have a great weekend, all.
