Seems like Delta is trying to help you not notice the essential cattle-car quality of their flights by theming the usually-ignored safety video in all sorts of '80s memes (complete with '80s stewardess uniforms. Yes they were still stewardesses back then). I love the co-pilot.

Jimmy Fallon's live walk-off from Late Night and walk-on to the Tonight Show. As a child of the '70s, Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem were a perfect choice. You can never go wrong with Animal.

Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem are very busy these days selling Toyotas. It's supposed to be some sort of cross-promotion with the next Muppet movie.

Movies vs Life Part 1 and Part Two. (NSFW French audio, English subtitles)

Rather funny videos that poke fun at various movie "moments", and show what would really happen in real life.


And from Japan, here's a city mascot being pranked. Japanese audio, no subtitles. Doesn't need them, though. Good luck not feeling bad for laughing.
Hz so good

If you're going to watch these at work, either turn down your speakers, or mute it in Youtube. These are some POV views of crazy rollercoasters, so S-bombs and F-bombs abound. Plus their a ton of people screaming, so it gets load.

That said:

Here's Taiwans Gravity Max. A roller coaster than bring you to a dead stop, tips the track a full 90 deg, then drops you straight down.

Here's Dodonpa at Fuji-Q Highland Amusement Park, Yamanashi Prefecture. Don't let the pink polka dot, or zebra stripe cars fool you. It's an intense ride, that take you from 0 to 107MPH in 1.8 seconds.

Here's Takabisha at Fuji-Q Highland, Yamanashi Prefecture, that features the World Record Setting 121 degree drop.

Here's Eejanaika at Fuji-Q Highland, Yamanashi Prefecture. It's a "4D rollercoaster", in that it connects to 4 rails, and each seat rotates a full 360 deg during the ride.

Here's Venus GP at Space World, Fukuoka Prefecture
And here' s Ultra Twister Roller Coaster POV Nagashima Spaland Japan

If you want to see more of their clips, head to Theme Park Review

The 14 seconds between 1:09 and 1:23 are pure genius. The rest pretty much sucks. The title is "Star Wars Bad Foley" (as in the movie-making term).

A quadcopter with an HD Go-Pro flying through a fireworks show at burst altitude. Don't know enough opera to say what aria is sung as background.

I have got to get me one of these, and yes, the music fits perfectly.

Now to dig a deep cylindrical hole in my yard.

Cash Cow!
http://youtu.be/wNlymFe2DcM

From the Valley of the Shadow of the Outlet Mall
To the customized pet-wear boutique
From the trailer of the fry chef to the palace of the sheik
The Cash Cow lurks, the Cash Cow lurks

Woe to you, proud mortal! Secure in your modest digs
You think you're immune? You, who couldn't finger said cow in a police line-up with the three little pigs?

Cash Cow, Master of Disguises
Who's gonna change shape at will?
Who's the eye in the pyramid on the back of the dollar bill?
Who loves power lunching from Spago to Sizzler?
Guess who's coming to dinner?

I, too, was hypnotized by those big cow eyes
The last time I uttered those three little words
"I deserve better!"
You don't have to feel safe to feel unafraid.

My favorite Neil Young (i.e. no Crazy Horse, no CSN, just Neil) tune from the massive and glorious mess known as The Last Waltz. Joni in the background doesn't hurt one bit.

Tragically, at least 21 people lost their lives in this crash. Two people in the vehicle struck by the wing of the plane were also injured.

Not a good week for me for attributions (ugh). The FDR data will be interesting in this case.

EDIT: News reports talk about a "flameout" in a Mayday call, but any twin-engine civil airliner won't get certified unless it can fly and gain altitude with one engine out.

Not really a sidenote, IMO... I'm sure it was a big part of the motivation for making that video!
