hobbit safety video

It’s been awhile since Air New Zealand released it’s fantastic Hobbit-themed in-flight safety video. With the release of the final film in The Hobbit trilogy, the time was ripe to make a new one so they’ve created what they’re billing as, “The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made.” It features all the usual safety tips, but it also has cameos by the actors from the film in one of the few safety videos that everyone will actually watch and enjoy.

princess

We’ve already seen how the Disney princes wouldn’t be the best guys to date, and now here’s why you don’t want to date (or be friends with) the princesses either. They are completely obsessed with their own little worlds and will likely make that crazy roommate you had that one time totally sane in comparison.

i've fallen

Watching people fall down without receiving serious injuries is funny stuff. It’s as timeless as fart jokes. It turns out the action is just as amusing when it happens to CGI people. Visual effects artist Dave Fothergill recently tested the crowd dynamics function with Miarmy for Maya, and it shows people running into a rotating object – they all fall and none of them can get up. It’s way funnier than it should be.

It’s important to study if you hope to get good grades, but a lot of parents spend far too much time trying to convince their kids to crack open their books. Here’s the perfect solution. Watch as Ian McKellen breaks out his best Gandalf to the delight of the kids at Chew Valley School in Bristol. If he can’t convince these kids, then no one can.

dead

We previously featured a bad lip reading version of The Walking Dead and now we’ve got another one that will have you laughing hysterically despite the impending doom all the characters face. Also, glue police? Hey, if Daryl says he’s the glue police then I’m not arguing with him.

peanuts

It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is a classic that likely brings back all sorts of childhood memories of Halloween. Now, it’s gotten the RiffTrax treatment and the sarcasm meter has been turned way up. This is not the version you’ll want to share with the kiddies, but it may end up being your favorite.

This is all in good fun, but at some point it’s all going to go south for the guy behind the camera. Apparently, he has a lot of time on his hands while he’s at work and takes every opportunity to scare the daylights out of his coworker by screaming Street Fighter quotes. One of these days, he’ll get his and I hope someone has a camera ready in landscape mode.

Game of Thrones is an epic story and a very complex one. This beautifully animated video manages to summarize the first four seasons of the show in just over a minute. It was directed by BlackMeal and Baptiste Pagani who hit some of the key points, but obviously leave out a lot of the story. Still, it’s not so much the story that they captured or missed, but the lovely animation style that will make you wish this was a trailer for something much longer.

dragon-ball-z-voice-acting

Voice acting requires doing a bit more than just talking in some cases. The following video shows voice actors Sean Schemmel and Jason Douglas recording dialogue for the Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods movie and, as you’ll see, they often grit their teeth, clench their fists and do all sorts of physical things to match the tone of their lines. It’s entertaining, especially when the actors really get into the “action.”

rings

There are Lord of the Rings fans, and then there are Lord of the Rings fans that really deserve a a good slap in the face. This guy falls in the later category, constantly rattling off quotes to his girlfriend and recording them for snapchat videos (in portrait mode no less!). It doesn’t matter where she is or what she’s doing, he has a quote ready—even if it means scaring the daylights out of her on a dark stairway. Seriously, this woman is probably going to kill him in his sleep.
