You know you’re in 2012 when you look through a flyer and think, “Why are they showing ground beef on a tablet?! And why is it so cheap?!?!”
Boy, did I feel stupid. Also, I could have known it was 2012 by looking at a calendar.
If you’ve ever strangely thought, “It’s cool that birds can fly, but what if birds could drive?” then this invention is for you. Introducing, BirdBuggy, the car of the future for our feathered friends.
Andrew Gray has built this fully operational vehicle for his parrot pal, Pepper. All Pepper has to do is grab a hold of a small joystick with his beak and push or pull to make his BirdBuggy go wherever its little heart desires.
"But what if it gets into a violent car crash and explodes into a ball of flames?" you must be wondering. Fear not, bird lovers, for this BirdBuggy has all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a vehicle specifically made for our avian chums. With infrared and bump sensors, you need not be afraid of a fiery accident that results in some delicious hot wings.
Have you ever thought, “Instagram? Isn’t that the app that makes people feel artistic because it puts an effects filter on their crappy photos of the mundane?” If you have, then this CollegeHumor music video parody is for you.
Using the music of one of the most loved bands on Earth, Nickelback, CollegeHumor has once again proven that they are the masters of parody by taking the band’s 2005 hit song, “Photograph,” and transforming it into “Look at this Instagram.”
The video mocks Instagram’s users and their excessive picture-taking of every day things such as clouds, a plate of food, an old door, a book, and the classic, self-portrait in a mirror.
Sure, Instagram has wasted a lot of the internet’s bandwidth with its photos of ordinary objects, but it’s better than the times of old MySpace where every photo was of your own face taken at a strange angle above the head. So thank you, Instagram users. You’re not so bad after all. But here’s a video to make fun of you anyway.
