1. The Cadbury Joyville Train
We may be set to lose the Zig-Zag Railway but take a look at what we’ve just gained: the Cadbury Joyville Train. How CityRail coped with this humdinger of a stunt we may never know. Admittedly some of the commuters look a tad grumpy. But hey… free chocolate, right?
2. Bill Murray's Star Wars
Before he was typecast as the droll curmudgeon, Bill Murray was known for creating the type of character people would beg to serenade them in a ski-lodge. The type of character epitomised here, on SNL, in Nick the Lounge Singer.
3. Paris Hilton's DJ Debut
She’s really trying, okay? She’s got her hands up in the air. She’s all ‘Are-you-have-fun, Brazil?’ She’s even working in some Angus and Julia (2:58). If you insist on poking fun, perhaps you need to watch House of Wax again. Or listen to Stars are Blind on repeat.
4. Powerpoint Meltdown
This clip is from Canadian sketch show Picnicface. It’s a Powerpoint presentation (an informative 101 on trucks) that’s sure to make you feel better about your own boardroom gaffes.
5. Candy Sushi
Somebody has to import these candy-making kits so we can try this at home. This confectionary-artiste had us at the sushi, but she absolutely out-does herself with the noodles and the gyoza. An inspiration for sweet-teeth and nail artists alike.
6. Absence of the Towels
Not YouTube, but let's say we're branching out. Here you have five seconds of flawless filmmaking. Directors watch and learn.
