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.

Watch the silliness after the break.

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.

pig

You just never know where smart science types are going to turn up, as this clip from the animated show Gravity Falls demonstrates. The episode aired this weekend with Neil deGrasse Tyson as the computerized voice of Mabel’s pig, Waddles. Normally Waddles just makes squeaks and grunts, but after eating brain goop he gets superhuman intelligence, which of course is voiced by the real-world super intelligent human we all know and love.

Needless to say, you should definitely be watching this show. Check out the clip after the break.

pikachu thor

Calm down and don’t fret because The Wiivengers are here to save the day. YouTuber James Farr has created a version of The Avengers starring heroes from the Nintendo universe. Link is a great Captain America (I want to see that cosplayed!), Pikachu is Thor, Mario is Iron Man – you get the idea. They have to stop Loki from ruining everything, and the animation is cute and fun.

Watch the mash-up after the break.
