The new Double Down burger is even more ridiculous than the original

Foodbeast found a new KFC Double Down burger that is even more insane than the original: the Zinger Double Down King at KFCs in Korea. Instead of just sandwiching bacon and cheese with two fried chicken filets, this Double Down uses the same fried chicken for buns but adds a sauced up burger patty in between too. » 10/23/14 12:23am Today 12:23am

Air New Zealand made a Lord of the Rings movie for an epic safety video

Air New Zealand loves to make fun in-flight safety videos that can include anything from body paint to supermodels to Richard Simmons to Betty White.

I mean, holy crap, I think this is the best movie trailer I've ever seen. Which, duh, makes sense since 2001: A Space Odyssey is a masterpiece and probably the best sci-fi movie ever but this new trailer, made to promote its theatrical re-release on November 28th in the UK is absolute perfection. » 10/21/14 9:23pm Tuesday 9:23pm

Short film: Giant rock creature teaches a funny life lesson

I think this silly animation about a giant rock creature trying to rescue a town is a hilariously dark lesson that shows how some things just aren't worth saving. Or that maybe all our work is useless. Or perhaps that bad intentions can cause good actions. Or whatever, maybe it's just a really fun CG animation. » 10/21/14 7:41pm Tuesday 7:41pm

CGI footage of people falling and not getting up makes me laugh so hard

I must be a horrible person because I howled so hard when I saw this CGI footage by Dave Fothergill that shows computer generated people falling down over and over again as they get swept around by a swinging metal fence. Don't get me wrong, I'm rooting for these clumsy CGI folk to make it through but I'm laughing at… » 10/21/14 12:58am Tuesday 12:58am

Swimming in an iceberg is like being inside the Fortress of Solitude

Swimming inside an iceberg looks amazing because the ice looks like glass and that's crazy, and because it kind of resembles an underwater version of Superman's Fortress of Solitude. Or at least, like a crystal palace. National Geographic shows us how a free diver explores the ice cold waters below. » 10/20/14 8:42pm Monday 8:42pm
