In no particular order, here is the latest collection of things which got our attention, made us laugh and ruined office productivity this fortnight. Enjoy!
1. I really like the colour, but can you change it?
When you’ve poured blood, sweat and tears into your work and this is the kind of feedback you receive, there’s only one thing for it: ‘favourite worst feedback’ posters!
2. Live action Toy Story movie
The original Pixar animation was a huge hit back in 1995 and this remake has to be one of the best in history as YouTube user ‘jonasonsMovies’ recreated the entire film in live action. With a run time of one hour 20 minutes, this is one to come back to rather than procrastinate with, but it’s worth it!
3. Anamorphic Illusions
Definitely my favourite kind of illusion, though I’d warn you that this clip has the potential to make your brain implode and/or doubt the physical dimensions of anything you see sitting on a desk in future. Download the images to try it yourself!
4. The Drive-through Ghost prank
A hilarious and immature but well conducted prank, this video captures some truly comical reactions of unsuspecting fast-food staff as they can’t believe their eyes!
5. The ‘Most Dangerous’ Icy Path
‘Everyone is falling over, what should we do?’, clearly the answer is to put up some warning signs and film as everyone who ignores them get a chilly lesson in paying attention. Very simple, but this viral video kept me chuckling through the recent snowy weather. (Watch it on mute though, as the music is annoying! )
6. The Most Addictive Sites from 2012
Exactly what it says on the tin – these guys have helpfully collated the websites where we spent/wasted a significant portion of our days in their top ten of the most addictive sites from last year. Only click if you have no deadlines to meet in the next fortnight.
7. You had one job…
A stream of photos from all around the world, for each one you can easily imagine the first reaction being ‘You had one job…!’ Along with a face-palm, side-splitting laughter and a generally substantial sigh of despair for the future of mankind.
8. How lucky was that!
A collection of clips featuring some stomach-clenching, nail-biting and simply incomprehensible close calls. Viewers of a nervous disposition, look away now.
9. The Secret Door
Want to be whisked off on a magical and surreal journey? Like the classic Mr Ben cartoon, this site takes you on different and totally unexpected adventures every time you click on the door knocker. Unlike Mr Ben however, you don’t need a fancy dress costume to take part!
10. Bad Lip Reading
The team at Bad Lip Reading strike again, providing us this time with a unique insight of what NFL football players might be discussing on the field. Look out for ‘orange peanut!’
