This Video Will Make You Rethink Revenge Porn

There’s nothing NSFW here, don’t worry.

Plus, more videos and sites to make your work day fly by quicker.​​​​​​​

Mould News


With pop culture evolving so quickly, what’s relevant today is old news tomorrow. To show how quickly new ideas turn stale, an ad agency slathered millions of mould spores on Kotler on Marketing, a book written decades ago by the Father of Modern Marketing, Professor Philip Kotler, encased it in a public glass display and allowed nature to do its thing. Innovative. For now.

Don’t Look


People who post revenge porn and those who watch them are taken to task in this vid. This SFW faux-homemade video opens with a woman reluctantly doing a private striptease for her boyfriend, who, of course, promises her that no one else will ever see it. Just as things start to get risqué, she stops to berate the viewer. “You know this is revenge porn, right? You saw the title of the video… You know what is going on here. What the [expletive] are you doing?” What, indeed. Tsk, tsk.

Moonlighting 


This three-minute video is an eye-opener. The film’s creators pounded the streets of LA with a telescope in tow, and offered pedestrians to look at the moon through the viewfinder. Strangely enough, it’s not the close-up of the moon but the reactions of these folks that make this video. If you didn’t know better, you’d think they’d seen an alien. Someone do this in Singapore!

Bite Size


Remember playing masak-masak as a kid? This takes it up a notch. Watch as the folks from Tiny Kitchen re-create Lilliputian versions of recipes from two Top Chef finalists. Using a working micro kitchen complete with diminutive dishes and utensils, they cook up minute versions of ribeye steak, gravy and asparagus spears. Talk about small appetites.

Chew On It


This bizarre series of commercials for Japanese gum Sakeru Gummy deserves every ounce of hype that surrounds it right now. The 11-part ad is about a beautiful woman called Chi-chan and her down-to-earth boyfriend Tooru-san, both huge fans of the candy, which comes in both short and “lonnggg” versions. While the guy prefers the short one, the girl prefers the longer one. Enter a stranger called Long Long Man and the story goes from intriguing to…okay, we won’t spoil it for you. Just watch it already.

IN THE NUKE

What would happen if — touch wood — a nuclear bomb were to go off at Marina Bay Sands? Well, an explosion of a W-87 bomb would result in over 83,000 deaths and more than 450,000 injuries — and even people who are as far as Marine Parade and Bukit Timah would suffer from severe or fatal third-degree burns. That’s according to this interactive nuclear bomb simulator that lets you find out the disastrous aftermath of a nuked city, anywhere in the world. Key in an address, select the weapon of mass destruction (from the 15 KT ‘Little Boy’ that dropped on Hiroshima to Russia’s 50,000 KT Tsar Bomba, aka the biggest bomb ever detonated) and then watch the effects of radioactive fallout. This fascinating (and disturbing) tool, created by educational non-profit Outrider Foundation, is meant to raise public awareness about the threat of nuclear weapons and to push for nuclear disarmament. Is it just us or does a nuclear Armageddon suddenly feel very real?
