What Flying Through A Tiny Hole On The Side Of A Mountain At 155mph Looks Like

Wingsuit/BASE jumper extraordinaire Alexander Polli has more guts than the average man. Or perhaps you think a smaller portion of his brain is dedicated to self-preservation, depending on how you see things. But one thing is sure: watching him zip through a hole in a mountainside at 155mph sure gives us some perspective over how safely most of us conduct our lives.

Watch the video above, and then reflect about the most exciting thing you’ve done lately… and be sad.

What Does Driving At 265.7mph Look Like?

On April 2nd of this year, the Hennessy Venom GT may have stripped the ‘World’s Fastest Production Car’ title from Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. The Guinness Book of World Records recently announced that it was taking the title away from the Bugatti because an investigation into its 2010, 267.856mph run revealed that the speed limiter had been deactivated, going against the GBWR’s rules and making the Super Sport no longer qualify as a ‘production vehicle’. This opens the door for the Hennessy Venom GT to take its place as the new speed king, with a VBox-certified run of 265.7mph. However… this was done on a 2 mile runway; the car was still accelerating when they ran out of room, meaning a higher top speed is likely. Considering the Veyron takes 4 miles to achieve its 267mph record, the Venom GT’s achievement is very impressive. The figure hasn’t been officially recognized by the GBWR, but you can see the 413.2kph run in the video above.

If you want a 1,200HP Hennessy Venom GT, you can get your hands on one for the cool sum of $1,000,000,

Cable Companies Get the Honest Trailer Treatment–And It Ain’t Pretty

The deceit begins almost right after you sign the contract and make your first payment to your cable company. “When will the technician come to set things up?”, you might ask. “Oh, they’ll probably drop by your house tomorrow,” the cable rep might respond.

Three days later and the cable guy is still a no-show. You’ll be left waiting at the door with no cable, no Internet, and no more patience. Thus begins the hate-hate relationship that you’ll have with your current cable company and with the one after that, because contrary to how things might appear–all cable companies are the same.

Check out the hilarious parody above that speaks the absolute truth about cable companies.

Viral Marketing Done Right: American Eagle Announces Paint-On Skinny Skinny Jeans

Spray-on-AEO-Skinny-Skinny-jeans

Yes, they’re trolling. But it’s a darn good one. The 30 second advertisement featured below is about a purported new range of skinny jeans from clothing retailer American Eagle. “It’s our skinniest fit yet and is so comfortable you’ll feel like you’re wearing nothing at all,” boats the narrator. And that’s when you realize that the pants are quite literally painted on. The campaign doesn’t end with a simple video however, as they provide you with a link to a special page on their website where you can contemplate buying a can of the spray-on fabric. There is even an option to add the $50 “Limited Edition” set to your shopping cart; pressing the button brings up an “out of stock” warning. Right.

Let’s be clear, this is absolutely a tongue-in-cheek hoax, as confirmed by the company’s vice-president last friday on the Today Show. But it does show the company hitting one out of the park in the field of viral marketing. The video has racked up over a million views in three days and got the Interwebs chatting.

Check out the video, below.

Everything Looks Better At 2,500 FPS

Our eyes, fancy as they are, are limited; they can’t see the super fast or the super slow. So here’s a little slow-mo p0rn, to keep you entertained for 6 minutes on a Wednesday. It’s a bunch of highlights from season 2 of the Danish TV show “Dumt & Farligt – igen” (meaning “stupid and dangerous”) airing this spring on TV 2 Zulu.

Our favourites include the bullet through the Diet Coke and the piggy bank on the lawnmower.

Reddit Keeps Things Simple With their New Webseries ‘Explain Like I’m Five’

Concepts like Friederich Nietzsche and his philosophy of existentialism can be difficult to understand. Reddit knows this, which is why they’re explaining what it’s all about in the simplest terms and ways possible in the first episode of their new web series called ‘Explain Like I’m Five.’ I think it’s clear what they intend to do from the title of the series itself.

If you frequent the site, there’s a subreddit of the same name that exists with the same concept as the series. Essentially, complex topics are tackled and discussed in such a way that even five-year-olds could understand. At least, that’s what they hope to do, in theory.

So Stupid But So Funny: Batman Replaces Characters in Classic Movie Scenes

Everybody knows Batman. I mean, who wouldn’t recognize him in his black mask with the furrowed brows and pointy ears? When Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy ended last year, fans cried buckets and wished there were more movies to come featuring the caped crusader. And come they will, since a reboot is already in the works.

Until that time comes, though, you’ll have to settle with the countless spoofs and parodies people are making based on the Dark Knight. This particular one we’ve got here shows Batman replacing a host of other characters in some of the most popular classic movies of all time, including Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Home Alone.
