Easter Eggs

Yesterday we posted YouTube’s irreverent summary of 2012 and we realised as we watched it that there were some easter eggs included. It took several gruelling rewatchings but we think we found them all. We don’t want to spoil everything for you though. If you haven’t found them yet, go look again. When you return, click to see them all. Continue reading

Pacific Rim trailer

Visually, this seems interesting. Pacific Rim strikes me as being very close to Evangelion (a worldwide anime phenomenon, for those not in the know) but remade, Hollywood-style, to be close to Battlefield Los Angeles and Skyline. Is that a good thing? Well, when it was released I thought Skyline was possibly the worst movie I saw that year…

I’m willing to give Pacific Rim a try though – it has a good cast and it’s hard to argue with giant mechs!

What movies are you excited about for 2013? Let us know in the comments section.

Neil Patrick Harris’s Puppet Dreams

From the creators of The Muppets and leg… wait for it… endary light comedy actor Neil Patrick Harris comes Nerdist channel’s newest show, Neil’s Puppet Dreams.

Following Neil Patrick Harris as Neil, the show looks at his horrible medical condition – he can’t help but dream in muppet. Trust me, it’s funnier than it sounds.

Cool Things to Find

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.

Gangham Style set to become most watched video ever

It has been the absolute smash hit of 2012, breaking records, breaking boundaries and making South Korean singer Psy a household name.

Now, Gangham Style is on its way to breaking yet another record – it looks like it will soon become the most watched video ever on YouTube.

Previously, Justin Bieber’s Baby (released 21 months ago in February 2010) held that position and in 21 months has racked up 802 million views at time of writing. Gangham Style, released just four months ago currently stands on 782 million views.

If Gangham Style continues gaining views at the current rate then in the next 24 to 72 hours we expect it to become the most viewed YouTube video of all time – a record that we expect it to hold for quite a while yet.

Are you surprised that Gangham Style has reached this position? How do you feel about Justin Beiber being knocked off the top spot? Answers in the comments.
