Torsken Kommer II

Terminator 2 in GTA V

We can’t imagine how much time it took, but Mikhail Kramer replicated all of the major scenes from T2 using Grand Theft Auto V and a number of custom models. It’s been condensed to just an hour, but it’s still incredible. If nothing else, watch the canal chase sequence.

2017 Shelby F-150 Super Snake

Shelby’s latest truck starts out as a Ford F-150, but is made oh-so-special with the addition of a 5.0-liter supercharged V8, packing 750 horsepower, plus sporty ground effects, 22? chrome wheels, and of course, racing stripes, because they make everything faster.

Game of Thrones Season 7 (Trailer)

Cersei hates everyone, Dany’s 747-size dragons make Tyrion look even smaller, Arya freezes her butt off, Robb and Ser Davos deal with real problems, and all hell breaks loose in the epic trailer for the penultimate season of HBO’s fantasy juggernaut.

Makin’ Moves

Director Kouhei Nakama created an awesome dance video without any actual dancers. Instead of humans, he played around with CGI animation to twist, turn, slice, dice, and contort choreography out of his virtual dance troupe. The track is Hella by Broke for Free.

Coke Habit

For those of you who haven’t been there, Coke is a very powerful drug. No no no, not that coke, the other one – with the caffeine. Enjoy this cautionary tale in the four minutes of ardent animation and fluid (and true) storytelling from Dress Code.

Nickelodeon ’90s Plushes

Matchstick Car Burndown

Oh the humanity! After spending an inordinate amount of time assembling this model of a F1 race car out of matchsticks, builder The Q burns it to the ground in seconds. It’s at once deliciously satisfying and totally wrong.

World’s Fastest Racing Drone

We knew that drones could go fast, but not this fast. Here’s some grainy first-person footage from flyer Patrick Gaborik’s incredibly fast miniquadcopter, which has been tracked at speeds up to 145 mph. The noise the motors make sound like it’s going to rip itself apart.

Spider-Man: Homecoming (Trailer 3)

Peter shows off his fancy Stark Industries suit, beats up the Avengers, stares at his phone, and eats a churro in the latest trailer for Spidey’s big return. We’re just hoping that Marvel hasn’t decided that one-liners are more important than plot and character development.

Sculpting Margarine

We can’t believe it’s not butter! Unlike the guys at your state fair, chef Devwrat Anand Jategaonkar and his team used margarine as their clay. Their record-breaking sculpture of the Trimurti of Elephanta weighed over 3300 lb and measured more than 8 feet wide by 6 feet high.
