I recently noticed a lack of DJ Format music videos on the site, and decided that this must be remedied.  3 Feet Deep is a classic brought to you by Keith Schofield, who also directed another videogame-themed music video posted a few months back (Wintergreen’s When I Wake Up, to be precise). 

Also be sure to check out the videos by Ruben Fleischer as well.  Schofield’s video appealed the most to my gamer tastes, but Ruben’s works are no less visual and aural masterpieces in their own right.

As evidenced by all these near misses nowadays (I blame Sephiroth), it seems it’s only a matter of time before we find ourselves in a head-on collision with a billion-ton chunk of rock.  This clip provides us with a close-up look into the anatomy of an apocalypse set to an appropriate soundtrack. 

When this happens, I’m totally selling my house and moving to ground zero.  If the world is going to end, I want friggin’ front row seats.  Of course, all this is only assuming that Bruce Willis doesn’t come out of retirement…

I know alphamonkey loves those “making of” music videos, so here’s the heartwarming tale of a man who aspires to do something meaningful with his life.

The clips are from a show called “Kasou Taishou” co-hosted by SMAP‘s Shingo Katori.  Roughly translated “National Costume Competition,” it’s also produced gems such as the previously-posted “Matrix Ping Pong” and headless girl skits.  Contestants vie for the approval of a panel of 10 celebrity judges, each holding two votes.  Fifteen out of the possible twenty points total are necessary to pass and avoid eternal shame and dishonor.  An archive of the best performances can be found on the show’s official website.

Luke Williams chooses an unconventional medium for his artistic masterpieces: the Etch-A-Sketch.

He is also currently taking commissions.

This is a fun little diversion based on the “Puyo Puyo” video games.  Connect four or more puyos of the same color to eliminate them!

Some of you may remember the “Fanta Shokata” marketing campaign a while back that involved making your own Fanta ads by inserting subtitles into random video clips from Middle Eastern dramas.  This site lets you do the same thing, except with Japanese commercials.  Let the hilarity ensue.

Not what it seems at first.

This clip, along with a more recent video featuring supposed footage from a Siberian excavation, is part of a marketing campaign for the PS2 game Shadow of the Colossus. Both clips are hosted on the Giantology blog, complete with accompanying podcasts. It’s quite possible that the site itself is completely engineered by Sony, or is being temporarily “loaned” to them to add to the illusion of legitimacy.  In any case, it’s a clever concept, with exceptional execution and attention to detail, especially for a video game ad.  Bravo.

For those who just can’t get enough Shingo, of “Rolling Bomber Special” fame.

Apparently this was officially endorsed by Japan’s Ministry of Education.  Also, watch for a cameo appearance from a special American guest.

I dunno how many people have played Castlevania 3 before, but I recently made a little video of myself playing the Clockwork theme.

With a paper bag over my head

In case you didn’t catch the reference, it’s somewhat of a parody of the Blindfolded Pianist. Believe me when I say it’s not as hard as it looks.  It’s all muscle memory.

(P.S. The bag says “Ted & Debbie’s Flower & Garden.”)
