As guys with 9-5 jobs, we spend a lot of time on the internet. A LOT. And I would be bold enough to say that you probably spend a little time on Youtube as well… Now that we’ve both acknowledged we spend too much time watching online videos, we thought we would share what we have been watching this week. Not everything is super new, but everything is super cool and worth the 3 minutes you were going to spend on Candy Crush. So here we go, The Incorporated’s videos of the week!
Hypebeast Pen & Paper feat. Antonio Brasko - Hypebeast, the men’s hip fashion blog champion, recently made a trip to Portland and documented it in a few of their “Road Trips” videos. Chronicling trips to Wieden+Kennedy, Tanner Goods and more, it’s always great to see locals getting recognition on a big scale. My favorite video was a profile of local art director and designer Antonio Brasko and his latest project creating branded spray paint cans. Check out the video, and his website, because he does fantastic stuff:
Mirror City - “Mirror City” by Michael Shainblum is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. He takes timelapses of city scenes and creates kaleidoscopic visuals with them. What he comes up with is a trippy, energetic look at scenes from Chicago, NYC, San Fran, San Diego, Las Vegas and Los Angeles like you have never seen them before. Take a look and enjoy the ride:
Chemische Reaktion NH4Cr2O7 mit HgSCN - File this video under the “things from nature that can’t possibly be from nature because they look so cool” category. I believe what is happening is a mixture of Mercury thiocyanate (Hg(SCN)2) and Ammonium chromate (Hg(SCN)2 + (NH4)2CrO4 for all my chemistry folks) being lit on fire, and what you get is basically a mixture of a volcano and a fire octopus. Worth the minute it takes to watch, and let the memories from 6th grade science class come rushing back, even though your teacher probably wasn’t cool enough for this one:
Hive - “Hive” by Earl Sweatshirt and featuring Casey Veggies and Vince Staples is not only a fantastic, lyrical dark hip-hop anthem, but also a fantastic music video. Mom and Dad probably won’t understand this video, unless they like spending time on deserted blocks with angry teenagers, skaters, BMXers and monsters. Odd Future, regardless of how you feel about their racy lyrics, consistently create stuff you haven’t ever seen before, and Hive is no exception. Watch the video and don’t forget to keep an ear out for some dope lyricism spit between the barking dogs and bunny hops.
Tech Tv guy breaks one of a kind item! – Ebaum’s World basically invented the genre of crazy and funny internet videos, which has proven such a blessing to our world today. I can remember seeing this video in the 7th or 8th grade, and have watched it in the hundreds of times range since then. Fantastic clip, serious fail, enjoy.
