1. Industrial Revolutions This cool little movie shows off the formidable skills of cyclist Danny Macaskill and the formidable beauty of an old Scottish train yard, in candy-apple reds and greens. Yum.
2. 50-metre buzzer-beater Haven’t been keeping abreast of the Olympics? No sweat. These seven seconds that made Belinda Snell a household name could be the best seven seconds of the games so far.
3. Mr Mixologist Dave and Barney, the awesome US equivalent to the Bondi Hipsters, take aim at hipster bartenders. It’s supposed to be a ‘what not do to’ but we’ll admit the kebab cocktail at 4:18 could be considered perfect alchemy by many Sydneysiders.
4. Superhanz on pubs
In keeping with the bar theme, here’s a classic Peep Show clip in which Jez and Superhanz lay down their own pub rules.
5. ET the Walrus Let us make this Walrus Appreciation Week, in honour of the mad vocal skillz of ET here. Just don’t do what we did and afterwards click on the suggested video ‘walrus sucks his own dick'.
