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.

OMFG Christie Brinkley is 60 and she still looks like that.

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 can't imagine how many hours of practice that took. He must be good and sick of Abbey Road by now.
