With the Oscars coming up tomorrow, I thought it would be fun to share this performance by Japanese comedian Yuriyan Retriever where she nails (as in totally skewers) the genre of the overly emotional acceptance speech.
Wanna see stuff getting crushed by hydraulic press? This is the right channel for you.
That’s is the description for the Hydraulic Press Channel, a YouTube channel where they, uh, crush things. Tyler found this stuff. The channel has been around for a few years already and they even made a video for Obama’s White House. It’s nostalgic for us to watch because of the host’s Finnish accent and attitude.
It’s winter there now so a perfect time to take their experiments outside. For instance, what happens when you put 20kg of red hot steel onto ice? Watch below for some “frozen lake stupidity.”
How do you get your props back again? As the host Lauri Vuohensilta says, “If you want something to be done, you just have to fucking do it.”
In the early 60’s two guys made a radio show out of wandering the streets and playing pranks of the unsuspecting locals.
In this episode Coyle and Sharpe wander into a drug store to ask for “operating equipment” so he can operate on his friend. “He’s got a pain in there and I’m just going to go in there and look around.”
They have that guy going for a good eight minutes. I don’t think you could last more than 2 minutes today. If you listen to the end you’ll hear him bemoan his DeSoto. The last DeSoto rolled off the line in 1961.
If you like that one, here’s another.
4th quarter, just over 2 minutes to go, Patriots are down by 8. Julian Edelman grabs the pass while surrounded by three defenders, not only grabs the pass, snags it just after it bounced off one of the defender’s knees.
This was the turning point. The Pats moved it down the field to tie it up after a two point conversion and then win in sudden death overtime.
Just posting this here because I’m sure I’ll be looking for this video in the future.
