Today, we found this:
If you’re not familiar with the MMO Eve Online, check it out (There’s a link in our sidebar). For those that do know it, let us know in the comments what you think of the video.
Memes are big business these days – almost anything can spark off and gain a life of its own. Some creators profit from their ideas but often its others who cash in once an idea is established that make the most money.
In March 2012 that picture was ‘discovered’ and quickly gained popularity through many of the usual meme-generating and distributing sites. The Gersberms meme has jumped and evolved over time so that many major geek communities recognise it in some way – and in November 2012 the Nerdist channel commissioned Gersberms (Yer Gervin Mah) as part of their online programming for geeks everywhere.
The song didn’t catch me at first… but when the cameos started to mount up, my smile increased, so yes… this song is gervin mah gerberms.

A week ago we showed you Dumb Ways to Die – a quirky PSA about staying safe near railways. Well, online the best ideas quickly get spoofed and Dumb Ways to Die is no exception. On Wednesday Cinesaurus posted their response, Cool Things to Find, showing all the fund (and inexplicable) things out there in the universe. We liked it, and we think you will too.
When I saw this I couldn’t help but chuckle. I’ve heard parallels drawn before between characters that actors have played in previous films and their roles in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. This parody trailer just confirms how true those theories could be, and how well the characters could have worked in another time, another place.
Anyway, watch, laugh, spot the references and let us know what you thought.
Over 25 years ago when Kim Catrall and Kurt Russell were Hollywood Stars, Big Trouble in Little China was a weird, cool, John Carpenter movie. Today it’s etched in my memory as a weird, cool John Carpenter movie with an awesome parody video.
Parodying possibly 2012’s most recognisable tune, Gangham Style, Lo Pan Style is even more fun to watch than the original film. Don’t take my word for it though; judge for yourself then let us know what you think.
PS. This is the first real item on our site. We haven’t officially launched yet but we didn’t think that should stop us from starting to post stuff. If you like what you see, tell your friends about us.
