An Actual Blacksmith Explains Why You Should Strike While the Iron Is Hot

You have to strike while the iron is hot. You can’t have too many irons in the fire. It has a nice ring to it. Go at something hammer and tongs. These are all idioms that have origins in blacksmithing, so Scott Wadsworth of Essential Craftsman decided to literally show us what all those idioms look like when performed in real life and explain how they are related to their meaning.

Home Alone Edited with More Blood Seems So Hilariously Demented

Let’s be real, if Kevin pulled off the traps and stunts he did in Home Alone in real life, there would be no movie, because the Wet Bandits would be deader than dead. Torching a scalp, smashing a head with a can of paint, beating up a chest with a crowbar, all those scenes would end up with a lot of gore and someone dying. But because it’s a fun kid’s Christmas movie, we can’t have that. Or can we? Read More >>

It’s not a glass of whiskey, and it’s certainly not a martini that’s shaken, not stirred. But there is something surprisingly cinematic about a character drinking a glass of milk in films. Read More >>

Short Film Brilliantly Edits Together Scenes from 53 Movies to Show People Trying to Kill Bruce Willis

What Would Happen If Funny Christmas Movie Accidents Happened in Real Life

You remember how in Home Alone when Joe Pesci’s character gets his head lit on fire with a blow torch for like 10 seconds straight? What would actually happen to a human if that happened in real life? The intrepid Mark Rober used chicken skin, a styrofoam head, and a beanie to find out. Read More >>

Literal Bohemian Rhapsody Lyrics Used Literally in a Goofy Short

There’s not much more I can add to this because it’s just the lyrics of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody sillily played out in a short film. And since Bohemian Rhapsody is like the second or third most well known song after, like, Happy Birthday and whatever nursery rhyme your mother sang to you, you’ll probably giggle a few times watching the action match up to the lyrics.

I Lost Track of How Many Car Crashes Happened in This One Snowy Intersection

It snowed in Montreal today and, well, things got kind of crazy on the road. I don’t know how many car crashes happened in this one wild intersection, but from what I can gather, the icy roads basically turned all the cars, trucks, and buses into giant sleds that all somehow crashed into each other.

Sharpening a Pound Shop Knife Turns It Into a Killer Blade That Easily Slices Everything

I know that it’s pretty darn obvious that if you sharpen a knife over and over again, you’ll eventually get a razor sharp edge to slice things with. But that doesn’t make it any less fun to transform a dirt cheap knife bought from a pound shop into a beast of a blade that destroys everything as if it were descended from the Damascus, Ulfberht, and Valyrian steel gods.

Totally Silly Animation Brings Random Objects to Life By Drawing Cute Faces on Them

Here’s a dopey animation from Sean Charmatz that imagines a world where every random object has a cute face. That means soup dumplings cling on to the paper when they get picked up, marshmallows enjoy a satisfying dip in hot chocolate, a glass pane closes its eye while getting washed, a Post-It note gets accidentally split apart, and so on. It’s like Sausage Party with cruder animations but less crude jokes. Read More >>

This Animated Modern Twist of a Bizarre Famous Painting is Just Delightful

Hieronymus Bosch’s The Garden of Earthly Delights is one of the most famous paintings in history. The centre panel of the triptych showcases a bunch of naked people enjoying themselves in the most hedonistic ways possible at the time (or I guess, any time). Studio Smack updated the painting a bit with a modern spin and added a whole lot of other kind of weirdness — cloud cows, tentacle towers, undulating sacs of human faces, a spider made of human legs doing the can-can, and giant headless chickens showing signs of leprosy.

Totally Absurd Video Shows the Opposite of What You Think is Going to Happen

Drop a glass, it breaks. Put a fan to a house of cards, it’ll get blown away. Prick a balloon, it pops. That’s what happens in real life. But not in Preposterous, a hilariously absurd short from Florent Porta where the total opposite impossibly happens in completely random scenarios. So now the ground” shatters into pieces, not the glass. The fan is blown away, not the cards. And a cactus gets shredded, not the balloon. Read More >>

Silly Animation Reveals the Dark Secret Thoughts We All Have at Random

It’s unfortunate that we all have to pretend that we don’t think evil (or even just slightly weird) thoughts in the most innocent situations. After all, the world would be so much more interesting if we just did what we secretly wanted to do (as long as it doesn’t hurt other people... too much). Read More >>
