Playing Sports with Too Many Balls

Playing Sports with Too Many Balls

It’s hard enough to protect a soccer goal from a single kicker, so what happens to the goalie when a hundred balls are kicked their way? The gang from How Ridiculous tested this and other ideas where the visiting team has way more players than the home team. Every game basically turns into dodgeball on steroids.

Nobody

Nobody

In this animated short film by Job, Joris & Marieke, a narcissistic social media influencer suddenly becomes invisible and loses the one thing he values more than anything – the ability to garner attention based on his appearance. It’s a funny but sad look of the shallow nature of social media. In Dutch with English subtitles.

Making a Flying R/C Bullet Train

Making a Flying R/C Bullet Train

After seeing the airplane-like shape of Japan’s high-speed bullet trains, aerospace engineer Peter Sripol thought it would be fun to build a model airplane based on the design. It took a lot of experimentation with wing placement, but he eventually got his prototype to fly. Will the scaled-up model stay airborne or will it derail mid-flight?

Testing an Old-Time Car Safety Device

Testing an Old-Time Car Safety Device

Long before seatbelts, airbags, and anti-lock brakes, there were plenty of well-intentioned but ill-conceived automotive safety devices. With big trucks and SUVs causing greater concerns about pedestrian safety, I Did a Thing dusted off one such invention – the Pedestrian Catcher – and tested it to see how effective it could be.

SNL: Papyrus 2

SNL: Papyrus 2

Seven years after Ryan Gosling’s character struggled to comprehend the use of the Papyrus font in Avatar, the troubled graphic designer thought he had finally moved on. Then, in an instant, he was forced to confront his demons again after seeing the logo for the sequel. At least they didn’t use Comic Sans.

Conan O’Brien vs. Hot Wings

Conan O’Brien vs. Hot Wings

While promoting Conan O’Brien Must Go, the talk show host and writer stopped by the First We Feast studio to partake of some spicy wings. After a pre-tasting checkup with his doctor, he sailed effortlessly through every heat level while chatting about his new travel series, his experiences as a late-night host, and the behind-the-scenes antics in the studio.

Panteena: Squareboys From Hell

Panteena: Squareboys From Hell

Get your day started right with this weird and wonderful mashup from remixer Bill McClintock. Combining Pantera’s Cowboys from Hell, Teena Marie’s disco-funk track Square Biz, and Iron Maiden’s Wrathchild makes absolutely zero sense, but as usual, Bill created a delicious musical melange from seemingly incompatible ingredients.

SNL: Jumanji

SNL: Jumanji

“Jumanji is a series of jungle emergencies! And we, sir, are not prepared for that!” Kristen Wiig returned to host Saturday Night Live for the fifth time this past weekend. One of the episode’s skits sees Wiig refuse to play board games because of what happened in the movie Jumanji. And yeah, Beverly, we’re talking about the true Jumanji. Jumanji Jumanji.

Crazy Concept Shoes by Canyaon

Crazy Concept Shoes by Canyaon

We’ve seen some unusual shoes thanks largely to the art collective MSCHF. But artist Canyaon has them beat in terms of variety and creativity. His Instagram page is packed with wild and impractical shoe designs, including ride-on off-road sneakers, steel welder’s boots, BBQ shoes that hold hot dogs and spatulas, and cocktail-dispensing winter boots.

You’re Beautiful But It’s Rammstein

You’re Beautiful But It’s Rammstein

James Blunt’s track You’re Beautiful is about as soft as pop songs get. But thanks to Otu Suurmunne of Moonic Productions, the 2004 hit song just got way more intense. His growly impression of German lead singer Till Lindemann is spot-on. His Rammsteined versions of Baby One More Time and Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! are similarly entertaining.

Making an Apple that Tastes Like a Grape

Making an Apple that Tastes Like a Grape

NileBlue wanted to recreate grapples: apples that taste like grapes. You’d think it would be a complicated process involving genetics and plant breeding, but it turns out to be a hilariously simple task. We’re not going to spoil it, but the video ends up explaining why grapples are not around anymore and why you shouldn’t try making your own.

The Greatest Video Essay in the World

The Greatest Video Essay in the World

“And we said nay, we are but men.” Polyphonic’s April Fools’ video is only partly silly. In it, he explores the references, metaphors, and themes in Tenacious D’s seminal song Tribute. It’s a surprisingly rich dive with lots of interesting trivia. It ends with a pragmatic reflection on chasing perfection versus finding fulfillment in the act of creation itself.

Smartypants (Trailer)

Smartypants (Trailer)

“Get smart the dumb way.” So goes the tag line for Dropout’s upcoming web series, Smartypants. The show sees the comedy network’s rotating cast of members try to educate, convince, or blow each other’s minds on any topic using good ol’ PowerPoint. Learn why vegetables don’t exist, which birthday is happiest, and more starting 4.25.24.

Dog of Wisdom III

Dog of Wisdom III

The mighty Dog of Wisdom is back. A year to the day since his last appearance, the all-knowing canine is here to school a chihuahua on the value of a good bone. Then, our favorite animated wiener dog turns up to grant the Dog of Wisdom a wish.

19-Tire Go-Kart

19-Tire Go-Kart

We stopped counting tires at 19, but it’s possible that this crazy looking homebrew go-kart has more than that. We’re not sure why this guy built such a ridiculous vehicle but it’s entertaining to see him driving around on it. It’s probably has mad oversteer with all of those rear tires so it could be a fun drift machine.

SNL: Immigrant Dad Talk Show

SNL: Immigrant Dad Talk Show

“Why have a conversation when you can just… hit ’em with the belt!” SNL pokes fun at the sometimes cruel and odd sentiments that immigrant fathers have about their sons, all while doting over their daughters. Guest host Ramy Youssef did a good job, but Marcello Hernandez stole the show with his rapid-fire outbursts. Spanish dad rap goes hard.

Wallace & Gromit: Enter the Matrix

Wallace & Gromit: Enter the Matrix

Wallace has been living in a computer-generated dream world. But Morpheus snuck a red pill into his block of cheese, and the real world has been revealed. Can he and Gromit destroy The Matrix and wipe out its evil agents? AdventuresOfSly gives us another movie mashup we didn’t know we needed.

Watermelon Girl

Watermelon Girl

Created by writer and director SouthernShotty, this family-friendly animated short film tells the story of a girl born from a watermelon seed in the belly of a fallen King. But instead of following the same selfish path of her maker, she’s sent on a quest for a new home and a journey of self-discovery. (Thanks, Rob!)

Lexus GX 550 Scent Mode

The internet is packed with April Fools Day pranks today, and this is one of our favorites. Lexus put together this hilarious commercial for a fictitious and fragrant feature for their new GX 550 SUV – a “Scent Mode” that helps you connect with nature even when you’re stuck in city traffic.

Realistic Mayor McCheese

Realistic Mayor McCheese

North of the Border and Studson Studios both like to make weird, creepy, and nerdy sculptures. For fun, they recorded voiceovers for each other, with Adam reporting on Studson’s literal Mario Kart build and Studson voicing Adam’s wonderfully demented McDonaldland official Mayor McCheese. Those thin layers of clay really do look like Velveeta.
