    People have been abusing the funny video thread by putting amazing/cool videos in it for far too long. It's time to categorize things properly and create a dedicated thread.

    I'll get the ball rolling.

    Edit: Please post a descriptive title for your videos so that people can know what they're about to watch and/or search for a particular video

    Beatbox


    Beating Super Mario 3 in record time

    Nice clips so far!

    This is the same guy from Danoff's post doing the beat-boxing (Lasse Gjertsen). But in this clip he uses two instruments along with his time line editing to create what I consider an awesome video.

    Okay, I think this is everything from my Facebook list…


    Honda Cog commercial (old, I know, but always amazing)


    Dice stacking


    500 Years of Female Portraits in Western Art


    Jeff Han: Unveiling the genius of multi-touch interface design (also old, but amazing)

    “The Ring of Truth: Atoms” featuring chef Kin Jing Mark making noodles to demonstrate the principle of halving


    Lance Burton Sleight Of Hand Magic (I’ve watched a lot of magic, and this comes close to being the best routine ever – I know how most of those tricks are done, and it’s still amazing)


    David Attenborough: Slug Sex


    David Attenborough: Crows in the City


    David Attenborough: Penguins


    David Attenborough: Lyre Bird (really stupid crazy amazing)


    David Attenborough: Caterpillars


    Bowling: 2 lane spare pick up


    The Nicholas Brothers: The greatest tap performance ever


    Penn & Teller: Burning a Flag (not a particularly sophisticated magic routine, but probably my favorite)


    The Inner Life of the Cell

    Being a recreational amateur flair bartending enthusiast, I found your dice stacking to be pretty neat. The guy just stacks four dice, and his hand work is pretty basic compared to some top notch flair barkeeps... I don't really like professional flair bartending, it is too circus performance (s/he might as well be a clown juggling bowling pins) but there are some seriously good bar tenders out there coming up with some cool moves.

    This is from a series that got me started with flair. The second half of the movie is my favorite trick - Magnet Pour, performed by one of the world's best.



    Absolutely pimp when you do it while talking to a firend/making them a drink.

  10. I hate it when people who have unbelievable musical skill play the dumbest songs. Showcase your talent with a piece that isn't the definition of musical kitsch! I think cell phones in the late 90s could play reasonable interpretations of Fur Elise.

    Yeah I know this is an old video clip, and everyone has seen it but I think it deserves to be in this thread.

    Ambrose looses tire off his V8 Supercar



    Not an ordinary hole in one in golf, no, this is much better. (player: Fuzzy Zoeller)



    This video music clip (The Whitest Boy Alive - Golden Cage) is full of well known optical illusions, very cool clip.





    I'm loving this thread, awesome clips from everyone so far! :tup:

    That is one ballsy dog. And judging by the fact that no one was hollering at it, they've done that before. Probably repeatedly.

    He must be a fishing dog. In one of the feedbacks, a guy from Texas said dogs are often taken on shark or big fish expeditions and are trained to retrieve fish like a lab retrieves a bird.

    Wow... I don't know what else to add. Definitely one of the best video's I've EVER seen. Looking forward to the creators response on how long that took him/her to complete.

    I can vouch for the Texas, LA, and Seattle accents. Each sounded right on. Seattle sounds like "no accent" to me.
