The Best Music Video About Watermelons That You’ll See Today


If you love watermelon, as Tom Rosenthal does, you might go so far as to dress up like one and dedicate a song and music video to it… like Tom did. Watermelons make us do strange things.

In this bizarre video, appropriately titled ‘Watermelon,’ we see Tom dressed as the large fruit, prancing and singing along the countryside.

The lyrics go something like… ‘Watermelon, watermelon, watermelon, watermelon, it’s watermelon time.” And, so on and so forth. Please watch.

Orchestra Performs After Eating The World’s Hottest Pepper


As a fun social experiment, and to help make watching classical music more tolerable, The Danish National Chamber Orchestra recently performed after all members ingested the world’s hottest pepper.

Watch This Sushi Conveyor Belt Become A DJ Booth


Sitting at a traditional sushi restaurant can be awfully quiet, and there’s hardly ever any techno to help get the sushi party started.

Red Bull, with help from hip-hop producer Just Blaze and L.A. DJ TOKiMONSTA, created a fully-functional sequencer from an existing sushi conveyor belt. Using the actual sushi that’s slowly making its way along the track, the plate’s colors trigger its own sick beat. Sushi party, started.
