Ancient Japanese Drawings Depicting Men Farting

Yip, you read that right. These ancient images were produced during the Japanese Edo period (1603 – 1868). They show he-gassen, or “farting competition”. Farting on each other, women and animals, nothing is held back in the fart wars. Apparently similar drawings were used to ridicule westerners towards the end of the Edo period, with images depicting the westerners blown away by Japanese farts. The images all came from a scroll, which was scanned in and then cut up digitally.

Is this planned? Did he just seize the opportunity to do a lip-synch dance? We aren’t sure, but that dude is pretty cool.

Is this the best clip from any series ever? Maybe. Anyone who works in an office has probably done something like this a couple time. Parkour!

How To Write A Hipster Rock Anthem

Maybe a little cynical, but this how-to guide on how to write a ‘hipster’ rock anthem is pretty funny.

This song was written ironically. Combining elements from bands like Arcade Fire, the Lumineers, and Vampire Weekend, this song was written and recorded in two days, and then we made a video that looks like an Urban Outfitters commercial.

Music written and recorded by Jared Sosa, and performed by Jared Sosa and Jamie Renee Williams

Android Kitkat 4.4 – The future of confectionery

The very clever and funny new ad from Kitkat is pretty good. The ad is part of a campaign for a colab between Google and Nestlé.

While the ad is funny, the website is the really cool part of the campaign.

College Humor did a parody video of technology advertising that is pretty spot on. Try watch a serious one after this. Enjoy.

Thrasher Magazine posted an article recently about really bad attempts at skateparks. We thought the photos were too good not to share. They are hilarious in some cases. Surely we have some cases like this in South Africa? Know of anywhere? Send us a photo of your local ‘Piece of Suck’ skate park.

It seems that in South Africa one of the great divides is the Marmite vs. Bovril debate. The most recent ad from Marmite is pretty funny, ripping off the style of those reality TV animal rescue shows. The campaign is focused around the fact that 1 in 10 Brits admit that they haven’t opened their jar of Marmite in three months.

Where do you stand?

Ever wondered which 99 problems Jay-Z is talking about in his song “99 Problems”? Well, illustrator Ali Graham did. He started a blog called ’99 Problems’, where he posts a problem a day. Not only are they pretty funny, but the illustrations are beautiful as well. These are some of our favourites.

What better for a Funny Fridaze feature than the latest Enjoi video. Watch Jerry Hsu, Louie Barletta, Ben Raemers, Cairo Foster, Dane Burman, Jake Hayes and Anthony Mapstone get through a hard demo tour with smiles and laughs.

Apparently the “C” word has a different meaning in Australia?

The Poo Song – A little ditty called ‘The Poo Song’

“Don’t be snobby, test your jobby!”

We thought this was pretty funny, and a fresh approach to educating people about a pretty serious topic. The NHS encourages older men and women to check their poo for signs of bowel cancer, a problem on the rise in Scotland right now.

So, next time your mom, dad or uncle Vlad goes to the loo, tell them to test their poo!

“The Walking (And Talking) Dead” — A Bad Lip Reading of The Walking Dead.

We were almost crying we laughed so hard at this. While it is hilariously funny, it is brilliantly done. The characters really look like they’re saying those things. ‘Bad Lip Reading’ is actually a video channel on YouTube, so if you have end-of-the-month internet cap to finish, go check them out. Be sure to watch the Bad Lip Reading of Twilight and of Obama’s Inauguration.

Yuri Suzuki and Mark McKeague really wanted to find an effective way to separate the biscuit from the creme in Oreo cookies. So they set their minds on a solution, and this is what they came up with. Regardless of what anyone thinks, it looks like these guys had a lot of fun working on this project, and finally achieved their goal. Work hard, persevere, succeed.

Funny or rad? We don’t know, but we sure feel like an Oreo right now.
