It’s always a good day when we get a new giant Pikachu video. Whether it’s herds of Pikachu in NYC, a Pikachu dance video, or an army of Pikachus in Yokohama, Japan, we’re all for it.

The most recent entry is this Pikachu at the Pokémon Center in Japan who heard the words denko sekka (quick attack) and busted an adorable move. It’s actually more of an agility move, but we really can’t nitpick something this cute. Watch the video below. [click to continue…]

YouTuber ProZD describes himself as “an aspiring voiceover artist that will hopefully MAKE IT BIG SOMEDAY”. Hopefully “someday” starts today.

Los Angeles artist Fernando Reza has drawn inspiration from WW1 and WW2 propaganda to expand on his series of Super Mario-themed posters warning about the dangers of Koopas and the need to enlist to protect warp zones.

We’ve seen several functional Adventure Time BMO builds over the years, but this version by Imgur user NinjaBunny9000 is probably the most elaborate.
