Super Mario Brothers Theme Being Played on Wine Glasses and a Frying Pan

Published by under Videos

We here at Unreality are very much into the finer things in life. Among those finer things is a nice bottle or glass of wine. Little did we know however, that someone would take some perfectly nice wine glasses (and a frying pan) and make some amazing art out of them. We say art because the display you are about to see is nothing short of art. We’re sure that all of you are quite familiar with one of if not the most successful video games of all time: Super Mario Brothers.

While the game itself has an endless supply of references, famous levels, pictures, and characters worth repeating, the theme of the game might be one of the most recognizable themes in the history of games, movies, TV, you name it. Countless fans have tried to alter the theme into various medleys using multiple instruments and tools.

Every once in a while something amazing comes along where a new spin on the Super Mario Brothers theme is created. This video is such an amazing thing. We present to you this guy playing the Super Mario Brothers theme on wine glasses and a frying pan.

The 50 Most Frustrating Moments in Video Games

Published by under Video Games,Videos

As I watched this video I was surprised with just how many I’d actually experienced, most being pulled from my childhood because well, nostalgia. I almost started getting mad just thinking about some of these, further proof that video games cause aggression through losing, not violence.

Could have done without the narration, but it’s a very comprehensive list. What would you add to the pile here that wasn’t mentioned?

Bruce Timm’s Amazing Batman 75th Anniversary Animated Tribute

Published by under Comics,Videos

You may not think you know who Bruce Timm is, but you do. The comic artist/animator is responsible for literally the entire 90s/2000s era of Batman and DC TV shows, from Justice League to Batman the Animated Series to Batman Beyond. He did the character designs for literally almost all the players, and is one of the premiere comic animators and artists of our time.

That’s why it’s cool to see him do a special little tribute for Batman’s 75th anniversary. Though it retains much of his signature style, it goes way, way back to a time when Batman had very pointy ears near his inception. It’s definitely worth a watch if you’re a fan, and who the f*** isn’t a fan of Batman?

Winnie the Pooh Reads Darth Vader’s Lines

Published by under Movies,Videos

Jim Cummings has been the voice of Winnie the Pooh for eons now, in addition to his enormous catalog of other voice acting work. While at a recent panel, someone asked him to read Darth Vader’s lines from Star Wars in his iconic Pooh voice. The results? Predictably hilarious, and someone immediately must edit a video inserting his lines into the film itself.

As an added bonus, he also does the same with his Darkwing Duck voice (guy seriously is responsible for a lot of voices). Don’t miss that as well.

Black Desert May Have the Most Insane Character Creator in Video Game History

Published by under Video Games,Videos

Upcoming Korean MMO Black Desert has made a big splash by introducing what very well might be the most detailed character creation system to ever grace a video game. As someone who usually spends a solid hour with the Skyrim/Saints Row/Mass Effect creator before even starting the game, I imagine I could triple that with the insane amount of detail featured here.

While naturally, hot Asian elf females are the focus of the video, it’s clear that you can make ALL different kinds of good looking people with the creator. The level of detail you have access to is just insane.

I actually like using character creators in games to try and bring to life characters from my books. Like, Asha, one of the stars of my trilogy, ended up being my lead character for the last two Saints Row games. It’s just cool to be able to give life to characters you have in your head when you’ve only written about them, and can’t draw terribly well.

Watch HBO’s Full Silicon Valley Pilot Right Here

Published by under Television,Videos

As excited as I was that Game of Thrones returned on Sunday, I was also curious to catch the premiere of Mike Judge’s new comedy, Silicon Valley. Naturally, I forgot to set my DVR, but HBO in their infinite promotional wisdom has decided to upload the entire pilot to YouTube. The plan is to get you hooked, then get you subscribing.

I actually really like it. I work at least adjacent to the tech scene as a professional blogger (please hold your laughter) so some of this hits home. It’s a group ripe for mocking that hasn’t really been touched all that much. Plenty of shows have made fun of geeks, but not the geek tech culture that exists out there which is just asking to be taken down a peg. Or two. Or twenty. It’s Mike Judge’s Social Network, and it’s glorious. I really like the lead actor, Thomas Middleditch, who’s the most understated one of the bunch, and there’s a lot of great comedic talent involved here (Martin Starr, TJ Miller).

Check out the pilot for yourself while it’s still online, and subscribe/pirate for more next week.

The Now and Forever Winner of the Most Ergregious Product Placement of All Time

Published by under Television,Videos

I know this clip is a year or two old at this point, but I just found it in my mailbox with the subject line “MUST FEATURE: WORST PRODUCT PLACEMENT.”

It did not disappoint.

I thought that nothing would ever beat the episode of Smallville where Pete Ross gets superpowers from a Kryptonite laced piece of Stride gum while attending a concert in an abandoned Stride gum manufacturing plant which shut down becaues “the flavor lasted too long,” but this is a LITERAL COMMERCIAL inside an episode of Hawaii 5-0. I think the Smallville one is more hilariously terrible, but this is just…awful. Watch for yourself.

Superman Makes Gravity a Hell of a Lot Shorter

Published by under Movies,Videos

I loved Gravity, and I don’t think I ever got around to making a top ten movie list for 2014, but if I did it would have been at the top. It was one of the only movies I’ve seen recently that truly felt like it was worth not only going to the theater for, but even paying for IMAX and 3D to boot.

Welllll, it could have gone differently, particularly if it had this alternate ending which would have shaved about 100 minutes or more off the movie. The movie is all about fighting back against nature and space itself, but who needs to do that when you have Superman? Just watch.

Pete Holmes Fires Ken

Published by under Video Games,Videos

I’m not sure if these “Street Fighter Red Tape” videos are quite as good as Pete Holmes’ X-Men series, but I can’t say I don’t enjoy them.

This time around, Holmes calls out Ken for being a clone of Ryu, and more or less useless. Not great for workplace diversity. I really like his surfer dude voice.

“I think people would want to see two hurricane kicks.”

Who do you think will be next? I’m going to go with E. Honda. “You push people. That’s like, all you do.”

The Lion King Cast Makes Air Travel Not Suck

Published by under Videos

I hate flying. Not because of any specific fears, but just that the whole process from ticketing to security to boarding to flying itself is just….the worst.

Well, unfortunately I wasn’t on this flight which would have made my travel day just a little bit better. This video captures the rather enthusiastic Lion King cast singing their hearts out to serenade the passengers and crew with a rendition of “Circle of Life.”

It’s the sort of video that was destined to go viral and sure enough, here we are. Check it out for yourself.

The Dark Knight Hallows

Published by under Movies,Videos

It doesn’t happen too often, but sometimes, one movie’s soundtrack ends up being great matched up with a different film. One of those times is now, where someone has taken the intro to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, and set it to a track from The Dark Knight soundtrack by Hans Zimmer.

The result is a rather fantastic intro for the movie, made infinitely more epic by an alternate universe score. Check it out for yourself above.
