8-Bit Trip done With Lego Bricks

It took these guys 1500 man hours to put together this video. Overall it’s pretty impressive.

“Special” Wife

Original ad:
I need the help of a drywall expert to repair a large hole in our hallway wall. The hole is about three feet wide. You will need to bring all materials needed, but I will cover the cost. I can send pictures of the hole if requested.

Please respond with availability and a reasonable rate.

Hey,

I saw your ad and will be able to help you out. The best thing to do for dry wall holes is to tape over the entire hole with strips of duct tape, and then paint over the duct tape. If you have wallpaper, I could just put wallpaper over the hole. That would be even easier. After the repair, nobody should lean up on the wall or it will probably tear again. I suggest hanging a picture over the hole. I have some old framed pictures of Bon Jovi that I could bring and install over the hole.

I am available all week, and my rate is $25/hr. When can I stop by?

Texting while driving

The UK shows that they don’t fuck around when they make public safety videos. This one drives the point home with a bit of gore.



3D projection on a building

If you kill 7 minutes on an internet video today, make it this clip of a minimal building facade transforming through illusions of 3D projection.

The structure is O. M. Ungers’ “Galerie der Gegenwart”—or it was before projection artists at Urbanscreen got involved. Their vision of “dreaming” architecture gave the textureless, motionless facade a dynamic new look.

Some of the illusions work better than others. For instance, the first animations of two hands pressing in the bricks actually fall short of desired surrealism—probably because you see the wrists floating over the building’s real windows. But other moments will exploit your perspective in the most satisfying ways, as if Optimus Prime were redesigned by M.C.
