There’s no doubting the ease and creativity with which this gentleman avoids an oncoming train. Courtesy of UK based YouTuber BlackMoonCGI (who had a hit video a few months ago with his take on what’s inside Dr. Spock’s scanner), with this instructional video you’ll never get stuck with your car on the train tracks again.
If you didn’t already know that slow-motion effects make everything look way cooler, direct your attention to this mesmerizing video in which everyday stuff like water and metal vibrate at 1,000 frames per second (compare that to typical TV and movie shots, which are typically 24, 25 and 30 FPS).
The video was produced by Propadata Films for Fluke Corporation, a Washington-based manufacturer of electronic test equipment, and they’ve promised to release a making-of video — look for that on Fluke’s YouTube page in the near future.
Given how popular Santa and his reindeer are, you might not expect a deer dashing through a church to be such a big to-do. But security camera footage of a deer decking the crowded halls of Colonial Baptist Church in Cary, North Carolina has become such a sensation, it’s already made international news. This story of forced entry and on-hoof pursuit has piqued a lot of interest. Fortunately, the deer eventually found his way to the exit and went on his merry way without causing too much harm.
Yesterday marked one of the best-named sporting events of our time, “The Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips 400 NASCAR Sprint Cut Race” at the Michigan International Speedway. The entertainment didn’t stop there: during the post-race interviews, a TV cameraman positioned behind Kyle Busch mimed slapping around the third-place finisher in his lens. You know, like when you close one of your eyes and pretend to squish the head of someone in the distance. Cameraman stuff. If only we could see it from his perspective.
For most of us down here on earth, June 7th was a fairly typical day. If you happened to be on the sun, on the other hand, you would have been treated to one of the most massive solar explosions man has ever seen. It may not look all that big in the video — the footage was captured on an ultraviolet camera by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory — but remember, this is the sun we’re looking at here. It’s more than 100 times larger than the Earth.
The 90s are often thought of as the golden age of cheesy sitcoms. Shows like ’Family Matters’, ‘Wings’ and ‘Mad About You’ had a certain panache that was just so right for the time: the enthusiastic laugh track, the exaggerated physical comedy and the raspy sax rock theme song all came together in a comforting, consistent package.
Now, thanks to the power of editing, we’ve been given a glimpse at what ‘The Office’ might have looked like had it come out during that prime time (pun intended) for sitcoms. Check out the video below:
