Sometimes the funniest things come from mistakes like typos. And sometimes the funniest things come from intentional typos or, rather, removing one letter from famous movie titles and giving them a new description, as demonstrated by this thread on Reddit.
Inspired by the thread, writer and illustrator Austin Light began a daily art project in which he created a funny series of illustrations depicting scenes from the imaginary movies that came up in that discussion. And now we all get to enjoy the brilliance…
“The story of how a police officer works through his PTSD and adjusts to his new robotic implants with the help of the sexy soothing sound of his oboe.”
They say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but it’s hard to argue with the fact that in today’s competitive retail environment, product packaging and first impressions are as important as the product itself.
These 35 ingenious product packaging designs prove that a well-designed (and clever) package can make the product inside really stand out from the crowd.
Thelma’s Treats delivers clever along with cookies.
Think you know your movie trivia? Okay, okay…You hardcore movie buffs might know a few of these tidbits of cinematic knowledge already, but I guarantee you’ll find some new ones in here that you haven’t heard before.
If you’re looking for a fun (and easy) art project to do with the kiddos, this one should do the trick. All you need are a few pieces of ordinary printer paper and to follow along with this video to make a really cool 3D flower pop-up card…
We’ve all seen awesome skating videos and it seems like over time they’re only getting more amazing. The tricks these athletes invent and then are able to actually land are beyond ridiculous.
And then there’s Ana Maria Suzano and her longboard. Her moves aren’t as highflying and her board may not flip, but her skills and creativity take skateboarding from a simple mode of transportation or an extreme sport and turned it into an art form…
If you thought regular, old safes were too conspicuous to keep thieving hands away (or you just love to play with toys), Household Hacker has a great tutorial that will teach you how to take all your kiddo’s leftover LEGOs and turn them into a clever little place to hide your money and valuables.
I suppose it’s better than having to feel the searing pain of having stepped on them…
After suffering from epilepsy from age 11, John, who loved art, lost his sight completely at 30, which left him in a deep depression, he told My Modern Met:
All of the hopes and dreams that I had for my life; all of the plans for what I would do after I graduated school were gone. I was not only depressed, but in mourning. The life that I had, along with the future that I was planning, was dead and gone. I felt like I had no potential; that basically I was a zero.
We know that companies try to trick us all of the time, whether it’s with “new and improved” claims or just bright, shiny packaging. But there are also more subliminal — and clever — ways that they go about hoping to win your brand loyalty.
Some of the world’s biggest companies pay big money to designers, advertisers, and psychologists to dream up creative logos that convey an image you might not initially see — everything from an extra Hershey’s Kiss to a pair of McDonald’s “breasts.”
How many of these 26 “hidden” images revealed in plain sight did you initially miss?
This is one of the best known logo images, but just in case you’ve missed it, look between the “E” and the “x.” In the white space there’s an arrow that subliminally represents speed and precision.
Inspired by images from the Hubble space telescope, photographer Navid Baraty has been creating “out-of-this-world” images for his WANDER series — an imaginary spacecraft mission that stands for Wormhole Accelerated Nomad Delivery Reconnaissance — by arranging common household materials onto an Epson scanner.
The planets and moons are made by scanning the bottoms of glasses containing the liquids. The liquids naturally create the shapes and swirls that you see in the images when they mix. The stars and other points of light are made by sprinkling spices and the other ingredients around the scanner glass. Everything is scanned with the cover open to create the totally black backdrop of “space.”
In addition to being the creator of Foodiggity, Chris Durso is the father of an 8-year-old. He says that since most of the material covered on his site could best be described as “juvenile food-related nonsense,” it only makes sense that a curious youngster is going to want to get involved. But how?
His son had the idea to create a list of food puns for every state in the Union.
“The Foodnited States Of America” is now a delicious country filled with appetizing states like Kaleifornia, Swissconsin, and New Jerky.
They’re currently about halfway through the project. To follow along with the rest of the series, check them out on Instagram, on Facebook or at Fooddiggity.
If you picture a house crammed tightly between two big buildings in downtown Warsaw without an inch to spare, the image that comes to mind probably isn’t very inspiring. Now add to that image that the house is only 3 feet wide.
Three feet. 36 inches.
Is this the kind of place you’d want to stay?
Well, it exists, so you can check it out and decide for yourself. It’s the world’s narrowest house and you may be surprised by how awesome it is…
The Keret House is an art installation that is also a fully-functional home in Warsaw inserted in the space between two buildings. At its widest interior span, the Keret House is 48 inches, and at its narrowest it’s only 28.
The house was first conceived by Polish architect Jakub Szczesny in 2009, when he presented it at the WolaArt festival. At the time, it seemed almost impossible — how could a house measuring no more than 5 feet across even exist?
