What happens when you want to start a band and you can’t find just the right partners to play the other instruments? Well, you can use Legos NXT Mindstorms:[youtube http://youtu.be/QwGM-DxJwTg]
I can watch dogs running over a rainbow backdrop.
I can be hypnotized by the hypnotoad.
I can paint virtual nails.
I can see a website that is sometimes blue and sometimes red.
I can check if my computer is on.
I can meet the watermelon duck.
I can turn a light on or off.
I can even go to the end of the Internet.
But I cannot watch some video because some idiot decided that it should not be made available in my country.

If you haven’t seen the Gangnam Style music video (by Psy) by now, you’re probably living in a cave with no Internet connection or any kind of connection to the outside world, for that matter. But don’t feel bad about it, the video has no particular feature (considering the amount of wonderful stuff you can find on the Internet nowadays) other than being caught in one of those meme phenomenons for simply being a borderline-funny and extravagant music video.
However, what’s interesting is not the original video itself. It’s the enormous wave of creativity that it spurted afterwards. I keep getting amazed at each and every one new video that appears on the interwebs. Here are just a few examples:
The 8-bit Gangnam Style:
If you like the elevator scene, well, you can watch it for 10 hours straight:
You can also enjoy the elevator scene on some very famous movie scenes:
A personal favourite, the Gangnam Style vs Ghostbusters mash:
And probably the funniest one yet, the video without any music, just his voice and background sounds:
The Internet is amazing!
What makes this differ from other living statues I’ve seen is the details on the painting. It really looked like one of those old bronze statues that you see in most touristic areas. If he just had the patience and will to include some pigeon crap, it would have been flawless.
Spotted yesterday in beautiful Cascais.
