I know, I know, "Modernized Sesame Street" strikes fear deep into the heart of even the most stalwart, but this video of the number creatures counting segment actually got a commendation from the creator of the original in the comments.

Not for nothing. It's good!

Trigger warning: it's a Donald Trump teddy bear commercial.



I'm pretty sure this is a Cinco product. I mean, look at the eyebrows and tell me its not. Its more upsetting than most of them.

Psychological, social, knowing that whatever rash it has given you will never leave and will ooze a bit if you scratch it too much. After all that, spending $40 on an ugly teddy bear that watches you golf doesn't seem so bad.

Jesus Christ, that was so much worse than I was picturing. I... have a hard time believing that that's real, but it seems to be? That ad has to be a parody, though, right? Right?

This is either the most insufferable man in the world or a comedy genius who came up with a great character for the most insufferable man in the world.

Warning, its 20 minutes and, as mentioned, contains insufferably. But in an ironically charming way, in my opinion. But I blame no one for not even trying.

This dude dresses like an extra on Mad Men and posts basically nothing but fast food reviews. I am of the suspicion that there is some disingenuousness to this character.

Apparently he's kind of a big deal.



And he's clearly preferable than the immediate competition (shown about two minutes in).

Why does it look like that suit is at least one size too large for him?

It happens. I'm tall and skinny and even the smallest suits have to be taken to a tailor, otherwise they look too big. But tailor services cost money, and for a suit I'm only going to wear at weddings and funerals, so a few hours of looking like a goob every few years is fine.

This is secretly his covert remake of Stop Making Sense and it will go up one size with each video.

He has his reasons. Bob wants to be perfectly clear exactly why he's doing this and that it's going to be a one off.

I mean the first quarter or so of the video is basically him talking about what Really That Good is about and why it's a useful part of pop film criticism, and how this sort of thing differs from that. It's only about halfway through it starts really starting to break into failings of BVS

A fan spent six years making an "official" video for Rhinestone Eyes and holy Jesus does it look amazing.

Default I HATE HIS VIDEO'S CLICKBAITY TITLES, BUT THIS IS ACTUALLY SUPER INTERESTING.



One of Sonic 3D Blast's old Devs explains how he managed to pull off Full Motion Video on a Sega Genesis and it's fucking fascinating.

Wintergatan is a Swedish folktronica band from Göteborg.

Between December 2014 and March 2016, the band uploaded several YouTube videos documenting the construction of a music box that uses marbles to play instruments. The machine is powered by hand, and works by raising steel marbles through the machine into multiple feeder tubes, where they are then released from height via programmable release gates, falling and striking an instrument below. All the instruments are played by striking them and include a vibraphone, bass guitar, cymbal, and emulated kick drum, high hat and snare drum sounds using contact microphones. The music score is stored on two programmable wheels that utilise Lego Technic beams and stud connectors to trigger armatures to release the marbles. A final music video showing the machine in use was released in 2016.
