    I'm starting this thread so that when anyone runs across an interesting on YouTube (or any other online video) they can post it here. Street fashion, comedy, travel, entertainment, bikini girls, clips from your vacation, everything!

    Here are some short Tokyo videos to kick things off:

    Aside from the relatively poor spelling, punctuation, and etc. this person's mini-tour of Kabukicho/Ginza at night is pretty sweet. Makes me miss it...

    Maybe one of you fellas back home can record a bunch of sightseeing for me and send me a dvd.

    Less structured, and a little too long, but basically a dude riding a bike around Kabukicho (my hood) at 4:30 on a sunday morning, checking out all the low-ranking Yakuza standing around and being non-menacing.

    Yoyogi Park rockabilly guys. These guys are out there doing this every sunday for most of the day. They pretty much rule.

    Tokyo from the air. Now, with more fireworks!

    YES it really happens.

    This is what happens after a Tokyo Slim all-night drinking binge.

    "Karaoke Game Show" ends in electric shock for the losing players.

    This one is for nighttrain. [​IMG]
    From the description:
    Shakespeare gas commercial

    Ahnold commercial from Japan

    Japanese pizza is being ignored?!?!?! NOOOO!!

    I can identify with potato snack dude... I'd rather have the chick eat me too.

    Enjoy!

    A 13 year old girl playing the Ernst transcription of Schubert's "Erlkonig". It's probably in the top 10 hardest pieces for the violin, or any instrument for that matter. Technically this girl is insane... there's no dynamic contrast or nuance, or any musicality to speak of, but it is pretty in tune and accurate for someone that age. I've watched this like 4 times since finding out about it.



    The famous half time Bobby Knight rant (audio only)... it's almost musical.



    Bobby Knight golfing... he is incredible

    Ha... that Bobby Knight stuff is classic. When I saw this a couple weeks ago, I thought immediately of Coach Knight.

    The Helsinki complain choir, is a favourite of mine. The opening scenes are from the central train station in Helsinki. This is just a great clip, but I don't really know how to explain it. Hilarious DUI test!

    I dunno Kojak, at least the guy can remember a really long monologue from one of the verbally, and emotively most difficult plays/movies of the modern era. I'd say that puts him at least into "Pauly Shore territory". Which is still bad, but three or four layers removed from "worst ever".

    Except he remembers the dialogue all wrong.

    Does he? I havent read or seen the play, only the movie. Even if he screwed it up, he kept on going and tried to make the best of it. The bottom tier actor would have tried to restart. Give it up, he may be somewhere in the worst 20 actors ever, but he's not in the bottom 10.

    Sorry but as dreadful as the Glenngarry is, the 2nd clip is even worse, which cinched it for me.

    Heard about this for years, so it's cool to finally see how it's done.
    Sweet!
