I had no idea Google Maps could be evil. The guys who made this video provide a whole new perspective. Watch the video to find out more. 🙂
AOL decided to downsize and close its office in France. The recently downsized staff made this video as an au revoir and thank you for AOL’s years long commitment to its staff. 😉 I’ve heard, but not confirmed, that the staff received a year’s severance which is required by French law.
Update: The lyrics of the song are a mix of French and English. You can get the original lyrics, as well as an English translation.
It is amazing they were able to take it in one long sequence. That shows they probably put some work into preparing for the video. They don’t dress or look all that differently from the Silicon Valley crowd.
I love Japanese game show fun.
Someone decided to use Roller Coaster Tycoon as an entertaining method of plotting housing prices, adjusted for inflation, from 1890 until now. This video is the product. The Fed had to see this coming.
Ever eat at a sushi restaurant or make fun of people who do? This video is for you. Get your reading glasses out for the subtitles.
I love Japanese variety show skits and games even though I don’t speak/understand Japanese. This one is particularly hilarious: Human Tetris. Well worth the few minutes you spend watching it.
I’m punchy after studying too much. For some reason, I brought this video up to my wife and even partially acted it out. Now I’ve decided to post it.
And now for the maestro himself.
Louis Armstrong was one of the best artists, ever. In fact, I’ll go on a limb to say he was on par with Mozart in regards to musical acumen.
The artist is Raymond Crowe. This was taped at the 2007 Helpmann Awards, held at the Capitol Theater in Sydney on August 6th, 2007. The Helpmann awards are the Australian equivalent of the Tonys. Too bad his web site doesn’t list any upcoming appearances. I think it’d be great to see his show live.
