Sorry there was no Fave Five Friday last week. We had some personal issues to deal with. More info on that coming later. We now return you to your regularly scheduled (hopefully) Fave Five Friday videos!
Pixels – Official Trailer
This summer, it’s game on or game over! When aliens misinterpret video feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth in the form of the video games. I’ve been training for this moment my whole life!
Misconceptions about Allergies
It’s that time of year again… allergy season! Spring means flowers are blooming and blooming flowers mean yellow pollen on everything and runny noses and scratchy throats. Yech.There are several misconceptions about allergies that you may not have realized.
Super Hero Soccer
I’ll be honest, We don’t watch lots of sports. However, if they started using pop culture icons instead of regular athletes, I’d tune in a lot more!
How to Become Gluten Intolerant
Being gluten free used to be a luxury only reserved for those who are intolerant to gluten. With this cutting edge gluten educational video, you can become gluten intolerant too, whether or not you’re actually intolerant to gluten. Before you get your gluten-free pitchforks out, this video is not meant to be poke fun of people with actual gluten allergies or intolerance, just ALL the people who think being gluten-free will cure whatever ails them at the moment.
Daylight Saving Time – How is this still a thing?
Daylight saving time doesn’t actually benefit anyone. Strangely, it’s still a thing! Why? Just to make us miserable and early/late for church twice a year?
Joy and I will definitely be vaccinating our child. I can’t understand how someone can be so stupid not to. Jimmy Kimmel (who has an 8-month old child) feels that all of this anti-vaccination silliness is starting to snowball, so he invited some real doctors to address it. These are actual medical professionals so hear them out and then decide for yourself. Follow-Up: Jimmy created quite a firestorm on Twitter on in the comments section of his video, to which he replied with this video.
LEGO Back To The Future
If you love LEGO and Back to the Future you have to watch this climatic scene from Back to the Future where Marty returns to 1985 (the Clock Tower scene) faithfully and awesomely recreated in LEGO. I wonder what would happen if I got my LEGO Mini up to a scale 88 mph?
The Ultimate Dad Joke Duel
I guess since I’m about to be father, I’m going to have be more responsible with my jokes. Some dad jokes are so punny, they kill. Admittedly, some of these jokes are groan-inducing, but I still chuckle at the steak joke.
Don’t You (Forget About Me) – A Tribute to 80’s Teen Movies
I feel grateful to have grown up in the 80’s. You saw your friends outside playing and riding bikes, not just the top of their head as the perused Twitter and Facebook. I got to watch the progression of videogames from their infancy to what they are now. And the movies… 80’s movies are the best. Great original stories, blockbuster franchises, and incredible special effects that weren’t done on green screens. They all add up to a high-rewatchability factor. Don’t you… forget about the 80’s movies
RC Drift Cars in Japan
They may not be as fast and furious as the big cars, but these RC drift cars are just as awesome! I’ve dabbled in RC cars a few times. It can be an expensive hobby (pretty much anything RC is) but it sure is a lot of fun. It definitely be a lot cheaper (and safer!) drifting these beautiful cars than the real ones. If there was an RC drift track nearby like this, I might just have to get back into the hobby!
One of Jay’s favorite comedians brings by his beloved VW bus, a pristine version of his very first car. Gabriel is a lot less “fluffy” than he used to be!
10 Years of YouTube: Evolution of Viral Video
YouTube celebrated it’s 10th birthday this week. It’s hard to believe it’s only been 10 years! Here’s 101 of the craziest, most hilarious, biggest viral videos from those ten years (as chosen by The Daily Conversation). Such a great mix!
Sesame Street: House of Bricks
Some people say there’s too much pork in this town. Frank Underwolf could not agree more. And that is why Mr. Underwolf is on a mission to huff and puff and blow down all the little pigs’ houses. In this town, you have to know which way the wind is blowing, and unfortunately, for those little piggies, it’s about to get very windy.
Wheel of Musical Impressions with Christina Aguilera
Jimmy challenges Christina Aguilera to a game of random musical impressions, such as Britney Spears singing “This Little Piggy.” Christina of course crushes it.
Momkhana by Famous Footwear
What happens when you take a 550 HP engine and put it in a minivan? Mom gets them to Famous Footwear for new kicks in record time and style. Be sure to watch the cool behind-the-scenes video afterwards.
This has to be a record for Mental Floss… 80 facts in one video! I guess if you’re going to cover something as awesome as the 80’s you need to do it well.
Star Wars vs DC Marvel Final Epic Trailer
The same guy that made that awesome Star Wars vs Star Trek trailer (which we shared last week) has struck gold again! This time with an epic trailer that features Star Wars vs Superheroes. The funny thing… Disney owns all the rights to these franchises so this could totally happen.
Ping Pong Trick Shots 2
Dude Perfect is well known for their elaborate trick shot videos. This week it appears they’ve teamed up with Wal-Mart and Pringles (’cause how else could you afford to do such an expensive video) to make another Ping Pong Trick Shots video.
Love from Land Rover
This Valentine’s Day, one Land Rover Defender fan in New Zealand got one of the coolest gifts ever. I consider myself a car guy and I love this video, but I have to admit, that up until a few years ago, I thought Land Rover and Range Rover were two different car companies. </shame>
LEGO Mini Cooper Time-Lapse
I’ve been waiting all week to share this one, but I thought I’d wait and throw it up on the Fave Five list. If haven’t guessed what it’s about by the title, just watch the video.
Since tomorrow’s Valentine’s Day, Joy and I thought this would be a cute video to share.
MKBHD Explores Drones with Deadmau5
Man, there’s is just so much awesome in that title! MKB is Marques Brownlee, one of my favorite tech reviewers, and Deadmau5 (pronounced “Dead Mouse”) is one of my favorite techno artists. Together they teamed up to play with some hot new drones.
Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” Played by 10 Epic Famous Guitarists
What would happen if 10 of the most famous guitar players played Daft Punk’s Get Lucky together? Cover by Andre Antunes.
Man… I need to start playing Rocksmith again.
Star Wars VS Star Trek Epic Trailer
Ever wanted to see what happens when Star Wars and Star Trek clash? Well in this epic trailer you will see. It is time for Star Wars VS Star Trek!
Star Wars – Crossguard on a lightsaber?!?
Ever since the Star Wars Episode 7 trailer came out last November, the internet has been abuzz with discussion about the Sith lightsaber that has a crossguard. Now that we know what the fan boys think, what would a Jedi say?
