3 Videos I Discovered Today

Here are 3 videos I discovered today.

Un. Yo Gabba Gabba’s Muno skating through some LA landmarks. This is one ad campaign that actually worked, I need to buy those shoes for my sons ASAP.

Duex. Henry Rollins vs Hipsters. He’s a little defensive about his age these

Trois. The Warrior’s Way Trailer. Three words: steampunk, western, ninjas.


“Ohmygosh…I lead an overview of some of my favorite windows 7 features! It was totally informal.”

Yesterday I watched a 10 minute video of an HD camera tethered to a weather balloon as it climbed to 100,000ft then plummeted back to Earth. The video was a lot of spinning and whooshing.

I got through all 10 minutes of that video. I could not even get through the first minute of this video without feeling nauseated.
