This KMart ad is pretty much the greatest ad ever.

The Funniest People on Vine

To me, Vine is a proving ground for some seriously funny people. Some of these folks you might know, others you definitely don’t. Fire up your iPhone and follow these goons immediately.

Jacy Catlin
I definitely get a Rob Delaney vibe from this guy. He plays a great straight man. I love when he shows off his tattoos and reviews nasal mist.

Will Sasso
Recently infamous for his lemon videos, he also does a mean Arnold Schwarzenegger impression.

Max Burlingame
Outrageous, shameless, and sloppy. The humor is a bit “high school” but it works great with the 6 second format. Also love his take on the Will Sasso lemon thing.

Chris Delia
Yeah, he’s the guy from “Whitney” but he’s a pretty good standup comic. I love when he dares people to get close to strangers with their phones.

Jerome Jarre
This French entrepreneur isn’t a comedian, but there’s something about his aloofness that cracks me up. I’m surprised his signature move of yelling in public, then showing his big smiling face hasn’t become a meme like planking.

Nicholas Megalis
Creepy, offbeat, and gnarly like that high school kid who set things on fire. He also sings a lot.

James Urbaniak
An esteemed voice-actor. Kind of a John Hodgeman vibe.

Ry Doon
A commedian from Boston. He can be extremely irritating, but he does a great Jay-Z impression, among others.

Nick Confalone
Uses his baby to craft fun little short stories.

Jordan Burt
Apparently he’s big on YouTube. Plays a great nerd. The first time I saw Dennis I nearly shat myself.

Michael LoPriore
Gangsta slapstick.

Spinning Ice Circle

This is a 100% natural phenomenon. From Wikipedia:

Ice discs form on the outer bends in a river where the accelerating water creates a force called ‘rotational shear’, which breaks off a chunk of ice and twists it around. As the disc rotates, it grinds against surrounding ice — smoothing into a circle.

But imagine randomly encountering one of these in the forest. Bricks would be shat.

Amazingly Prescient Seinfeld Kramer Heckling Remark

While watching a re-run of Seinfeld tonight, I noticed Jerry saying something that now takes on a whole new meaning in the 19 years since the episode’s airing.

While expressing regret about not talking back to a heckler, Jerry remarks:

“I should have let her have it. [But] I held back ’cause of Kramer.”

I iPhoned the clip – check it out: (Sorry for the crappy audio.)

You probably know what I’m talking about already. So while I won’t embed the video of Michael Richard’s infamous meltdown at a comedy club while confronting a heckler, I will embed his surreal apology on Letterman. Such an uncomfortable few minutes.

My favorite line from this clip:

“Don’t laugh. It’s not funny.”

Condé Nast Entertainment’s Video Play

Some pretty exciting news from Condé Nast today. The new Entertainment group launched a platform for video delivery which they hope will showcase (and monetize) branded video content.

Today’s launch started with Glamour and GQ. Check out the sites – they’re really well executed with the latest in responsive design. My only quibble is that when you hover over a video (with the intention of hitting play/pause), the whole video and all its navigation buttons slide to the left and out from under your mouse. But that’s a small UX gripe with an overall brilliant execution.

They even let you embed the videos. Let’s give this Bill Murray one a shot.

Overall this is the “Netflix” approach of creating and distributing your own content and bypassing traditional channels. Will it work out and create a new revenue stream? Well if I knew for sure, I’d be with the executives on the 11th floor. So until then, I’ll just stick to making websites.
