Like a boss
So, i’ve been a bit of a YouTube fiend for a few years now. My job involves countless hours spent researching the latest technology and associated trends using the world wide web.
This makes it almost impossible not to be continually bombarded by some of the most attractive and viral content across in the public domain. Video snippets and headlines that just scream click me. Not those bullshit Huffington Post/BuzzFeed junk, you know the ones, the “something did something and then you’ll never guess what happened next” type headline. The shit just got real, I have to tell my friends kinds of stuff….
Along my travels i’ve found some awesome sites where the very best and most current viral videos find a home. Before I hit the the top badass videos to blow your mind, here’s my sources…
Here’s where the best viral content is at…
So without further ado, here are my top badass videos to blow you mind:
Without doubt Candide Thovex is one the craziest, most competent and creative freestyle skiers hitting the slopes in 2015. He’s so good, I might forgive the fact he’s not on a snowboard. His first incarnation of One of those days is also worth 4 minutes a 2 seconds of your life.
This first person masterpiece of a trailer could usher in a whole new generation of films. The action is spectacular and I love the fact that the whacky Sharlto Copley (from District 9, Elysium and A Team) plays a plucky World War Two style British soldier.
I’ve watched many a ski and snowboard video in my day and Cody Townsend’s ‘Line of the Year’ is just incredible. To have the skill and courage to track this descent is almost immeasurable. A feat i’m sure few could match.
When the waves are so big you need a jet ski to drag you in to take your line, that’s when you know it’s life or death. The relatively new generation of surfing known as ‘Big Wave Surfing’ is epic, but you have to be a major thrill seeker to consider anything so reckless.
One of my favourite movie scenes of all time recreated in lego, of course this was going to make the list. The guys over at Macro Lego Universe are absolute flipping legends for taking the time to put this together.
