Jooey Deschanel asks if it’s raining

Jooey Deschanel Siri Ad – watch more funny videos

Zooey’s “brother” is just as insipid and ridiculous as his sister. Look out the window and see if it’s raining. Make your own damned tomato soup!

How to survive a robot uprising

I’m not so concerned about zombies because those are fictitious, but a robot uprising seems like it COULD be a very real concern in the not-so-distant future. Some good tips here.

The Making of Tomorrow Never Knows

This was one of my first favorite Beatles songs. I used to listen to it in headphones while I cut the grass. Funny it was named after one of Ringo’s malapropisms.

A film produced by the NPL Film Unit in the 1950s explaining the principles behind the first accurate atomic clock, designed by Louis Essen and built at the National Physical Laboratory in 1955.

Twas The Night Before Christmas in Celebrity Voices by Jim Meskimen

Some great impressions… many very understated and accurate. There are a few misses, but when he hits he really hits. His Alan Rickman is great!

Snow shovel the video game

Well executed. I really didn’t think I was going to watch this whole thing, but I they kept it interesting and I stuck it out to the end. I like the chiptune Black Sabbath in the beginning.

Big Dog Exercise Wheel

As the jabbering ladies in the background also speculate, they should indeed hook that thing up to an electrical generator.

ABCs of Cinema

ABCinema from Evan Seitz on Vimeo.

Lovely animation of soundclips and allusions to 26 films A-Z. Can you name them all? I couldn’t.

Portlandia – Put a bird on it

I kept seeing people saying “put a bird on it” and had to look it up to see what it was from. Fred Armisen’s Portlandia apparently.

Jay Pharoah does 50 impressions

The new guy from Saturday Night Live in what was probably part of his audition tape. Good stuff.

Speaking of Impressions

This is a damned good Nic Cage impression by Rob Magnotti.

U Smile slowed down

I know this is old, but i relistened and love it all over again. Justin Beiber’s U Smile slowed down 800% turns into a Sigur Ros ballad!

Conan plays life-sized Angry Birds

Balloon pigs hidden under IKEA furniture + a giant sling shot. This must have been a fun day at work for the production department. Unfortunately you have to sit through 30 seconds of George Lopez first :(
