The Office - a farewell web series

All good things must come to an end...and for The Office it's gonna be on May 16th.
After nine highly entertaining seasons we have to say goodbye to our favourite characters. But in order to help sending the series off in style, NBC launched a farewell web series.

In the first episode, Will Ferrell fondly remembers his multi-episode appearance as Deangelo Vickers, while enjoying his lunch. Have a look: 

There will be all in all ten webisodes, with the final one hitting before next month’s finale.
Who would you like to see bidding farewell and reminiscing about the good old times at the office?

Happy Birthday VHS!

Aww, do you remember the times when we recorded our favourite TV shows on these huge, black cassettes called VHS? In 2000, they were replaced by DVDs and nowadays there is the cloud and online streaming. But in order to celebrate 40 years since the first functional prototype VHS player was created, YouTube has introduced the “tape mode” to give modern online videos that typical scratchy VHS look.
On selected videos, you can find a VHS button in the bottom right of the player. So just click on it to turn back the clock and enjoy the static and blurred motion of the VHS era:

True Facts - The Reinvented Nature Show

I know I have always been saying that the genres that work the best online are comedy, thriller and sci-fi. But YouTube comedian Ze Frank teaches me better now. He reinvented the nature and wild life genre and makes it entertaining to watch informative stuff about animals. Brilliant!

The episodes of True Facts feature animals such as the star-nosed mole, the dung beetle, and the leaf katydid. Nearly 10 million people have watched a nature video about the hideous angler fish.
The videos are informative, but first and foremost very funny. Have a look: 

He even teamed up with BBC Worldwide to launch two of his recent clips.
