Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows is out today, but we bet no one is quite as excited as this kid. This video has been making the rounds online this week, but if you haven't seen it check it out….
You might have forgotten this, or been unaware of its existence, but I thought it was worth some nostalgia. This is Doctor Spin performing their rave-tinged version of the music from “Tetris” on Top of the Pops in 1992. Oh da!
They say there are 10 types of people in this world – those who understand binary and those who don’t. If you’re in the latter group, then click play on the video above, sit back, and have it explained in a minute flat. It’s certainly the best video I’ve seen in the last 111 days.
I’m not sure I’d actually want a motion controlled mp3 player but I’d certainly like the skills to make one. I get the feeling it woudn’t be such a clever gadget on the move but I love the SD card loading…
This is turning into a great week for web video. On top of the awesome trebuchet we featured yesterday, I couldn’t pick today between the amazing Mexican wrestler, Mascarita Dorada, above and a farewell compilation of George W Bush’s 10 best moments from the David Letterman show in the States. You can see that just over the jump. Which is your favourite? Let us know in the comments.
This fantastic video was produced by a chap called PES, and is part of the 2009 Sundance Official Selection. It’s a beautiful piece of stop-motion animation using rubber bands, pick-up sticks, rubik’s cubes, and bubblewrap. Got a favourite YouTube video? Link us to it in the comments, and you might see it as a future Video of the Week.
Whoa – this is awesome. Supersize a simple bottle rocket, and strap it to a terrified-looking Japanese bloke. The most impressive thing? The science involved, neatly summarised by PopSci. In short, this bloke leaves the launchpad at over 200MPH, experiencing acceleration of approx 10gs! Don’t try this at home, kids.

Okay. Pay attention. This is the transformation of two stellated rhombic dodecahedrons from a cube, according the bloke in the video. I don’t really know what that means, but that might be because I’m blinded by the power of geometry-based-awesomeness.
It’s also known as the Yoshimoto Cube, and you can buy it here. Bit late for a stocking filler, I’m afraid.
We’ve all been there. It’s Christmas Eve, and you’ve managed to accidentally kill Santa. What on earth do you do with the body? With all the blood, vomit, axes and knives you’ll need over the festive season, this trailer (sadly not for a real film) puts the “ho ho ho” back in “homicide”.
Oh, and for added hilarity, run it through the Bennyhillifier.
2008’s been an awesome year for silly internet videos, as the compilation from Videogum above proves. There are some crackers missing, but you can rest assured that most of your favourites are present and correct. Now sit back, and let the year flash before your eyes.
