Mashup

He-Man is Sexy (And he Knows it)

What better way to celebrate today’s anti-SOPA blackout than by sharing a video that would, in all likelihood, be illegal should the bill pass. He-Man is pretty buff, he knows it and he damn well wants to make sure that you know it too.  JesseWolf‘s video defiantly falls into the sillier end of the spectrum but for the teddy bear alone, it’s worth a watch.

We’re not doing a SOPA blackout today, partly because we’re a primarily UK based site and it wouldn’t have any real impact but mostly because I don’t have the technical know-how to actually implement it. If you’d like to find out more about SOPA and the damage it could do to sites like ours, click here.

United States of Pop 2011

DJ Earworm‘s United States of Pop mixes have become something of an internet staple in the last few years. The idea is that he takes a selection of major pop songs from the past 12 months and turns them into a poptastic supermix (neither of which are words I expected to use). This year’s showing is a fine one and while I barely recognise any of the individual tracks, I’m still rather fond of the finished article.

Darth Vader/Shaft Mashup Video Is Amazing

I’ve just had the pleasure of being introduced to the work of mashup artists Ithaca Audio. Ithaca take existing music videos and mash them together to create entirely new sounds. The results are devastatingly cool and will doubtless be distracting me from getting any work done for at least the next week.

This track combines not only the Theme From Shaft with the Imperial March but also throws that Guinness advert in there for good measure. Oh and when it offers you the chance to click the link at the end to see their new video…you’re gonna want to click that.

The Golden Age of Video – Incredible Mashup

I’m away on my honeymoon right now but in order to not shirk my Bunkerly duties, I’ve queued up 10 awesome vids for you dear people. Enjoy!

This has been one of my favourite youtube clips ever since I came across it on the excellent Best of Youtube podcast and I’m actually kinda surprised that I’ve not posted it before. It’s a wonderful music video made up of clips from tonnes of classic movies and TV shows and is as finer a piece of editing and remixing as you’re likely to see. It’s by a chap called Ricardo Autobahn and you should check out the rest of his work on the strength of his name alone.

I just dare you to try and name every film shown here.

(Assuming I’ve not been eaten by a bear, I should be on my way home from Canada tomorrow. Given the length of the flight and inevitable jet lag, it may be a couple of days before real me is back on here, but as soon as I’m rested we’ll be back to business as usual. I hope you enjoyed the break as much as I did…probably).

Masterchef Likes The Bass

This is one of the best remix mashup tracks I’ve heard in ages…well since THIS one to be honest. It turns out that if there’s one thing the Masterchef presenters like more than anything else, it’s fat buttery bass. It’s a truly hardcore piece of editing from Swedemason and it’s mindblowingly good.

Bass.

The Greatest Captain America parody trailer you’re ever likely to see…

Don’t read. Watch.

‘Do you think this A on my helmet stands for Fuck yeah? Because it does!’

Within a week of the new Captain America coming out we give you one of the greatest parody trailers ever! Its Captain America vs Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s Team America. The creation of a slightly overwhelmed CelticPredator on Youtube its hard to think of a better mash up. Amazing!
