Let's Go to the Videotape

Here's some pretty fun and interesting video links I've come across in the past week or so. And I think you'll find each of them to be pretty interesting.

1) Top Gear, an auto show on the BBC sets out to compare the Playstation 2's "Gran Turismo 4" version of the Laguna Seca to the real thing. Watch as the host of the show races an Acura NSX on the Playstation 2 and then heads to California to race the exact same car on the real-world course. Can he match his videogame time? I came across this one just browsing google video.


2) Fans of the game World of Warcraft have made tons of music videos and movies by recording their game footage and dubbing in voice-overs later. But this one titled "The Internet is For Porn" is absolutely hysterical. It's a musical, it's a duet, and the lyrics, singing, and sound effects are all top-notch. Probably not suitable for work, so put your headphones on. I came across this link browing youtube's site.


3) This one has gotten talked about a lot lately, but I have to credit Bill Harris for posting the link repeatedly on his blog, else I may have skipped over it. It's definitely one of the funniest comedy acts I've seen in a while. It's by an Aussie comedy trio called Tripod and the three of them sing a song about typical late night late romance... with a gamer.


4) And just in case you haven't seen it already or been emailed the link by all your friends, here's a link to "Lazy Sunday" the SNL rap video by Chris Parnell and Andy Samberg about their trip to see Chronicles of Narnia. And to buy cupcakes. Done in a very Beastie-esque fashion and one of the funniest SNL skits in years.
