When prankers don’t prank

Youtube is an amazing (relatively) new tool in Internet. Besides kittens and music videos, the website will throw countless viral videos every day.

Pranking is one of the most famous concepts for a channel in Youtube, and there are already famous people doing it for some time. Their channels have hundreds of thousands or even millions of subscribers, which shows how succcessful they are.

But recently these famous channels have done something different. They know that their videos are seen by millions around the planet, so they decided to offer something different than just pranks: Philantropy. Just a simple act that can inspire.

I think is a great idea. These guys are known worldwide because of their pranks and millions watch every step they do. Well, now some will be inspired by a single 5 minute video.

Simply by coming with these ideas once in a while, it reminds us that we can also go out of our routine and inspire, if not millions, at least to the ones around us. This really restores faith in humanity, because shows that anyone can help at any time. Continue reading

VHS mode in Youtube

Not sure if a late Easter egg, a passing joke or a permanent feature (would be fun), but Google gives us again the opportunity to play around with the common things on the internet.

This time comes all through Youtube. A new feature was added to the player of Youtube: the “Tape Mode”. You click it and your image will seem like an old VHS-cassette-like video. Quite nostalgic, I would say. I just discovered it watching some Ellen videos (I admit it, goddamit, that woman’s jokes are funny for me), and discovered this one with Steve Carell (better if you watch it in Youtube‘s website):

The legend says that they do it because of the 57th Anniversary of the commercial realease of the first VHS cassette. Well, quite a random number for me, but anyways. Not all videos have this feature. Apparently you just have to randomly find them too. Buuuu!!

Oh yeah, click “Pause” and it will keep the old effect of the cassette. These hipsters are everywhere with the electronic vintage effects. First their instagram, now this. I don’t think is gonna last, but I’d activate it for fun only.

Find a nice video and give it a try!

Cultura Mexa

Intrigado por mi futuro viaje a tierra nipona me puse a indagar un poco más sobe la cultura que he de conocer. Sin embargo, también me puse a buscar la cultura que estamos mostrando al extranjero.

Una de mis fuentes favoritas en internet es el Youtube porque me da resultados más rápidos y visibles, más interactivos. Grande fue mi sorpresa al ver que los videos más vistos, los más votados y los más comentados acerca de lo mexicano… son acerca de los personajes más denigrantes.

Por un lado causa mucha pena ajena, después me causó mucha pena por mi país… pero al final siempre me sacan una gran carcajada. A continuación… los mexicanos más famosos de la web: Continue reading

Sorpresas…

Sí, sé que les he fallado con la tercera y última entrega del cuestionario, pero este fin de semana estuve algo ocupado y sin luz en Tula, pero mientras se terminan de coser algunas cosas para la página, les traigo el siguiente video para celebrar que la paginita ya llega a 100 visitas diarias jajajaja. Bueno, no es mucho, lo sé, pero por algo se empieza.

Entonces, pues, les traigo el siguiente video de una sorpresita que no a todos nos agradaría:

Y como les decía, perdonen que me tarde tanto con la tercera parte. Espero subirla mañana con el listado de premios. Sigan atentos.
