Epic Gaming Moment
Battlefield 3 - Jet Swap by Stungravy
So you're flying around in a fighter jet when all of a sudden you're being tailed by enemy aircraft and ground to air missiles, what do you do?
Well if you were playing a video game, you'd pull your plane upwards into a 90 degree climb to lure your pursuer into a vertical ascent, then you'd jump out of it into a free fall and as you do so, you look through your gun scope, take aim at the tailing enemy aircraft and snipe the pilot right in his cockpit.
The newly 'vacated' aircraft is now all yours for the taking and you casually phase into it as it makes its upward trajectory towards you.
This rousing performance of virtual reality finesse is quickly gaining popularity among the global audiences of Youtube, amassing over 350,000 views in 2 short days since its upload.
Funny Social Comedy
ABUDEN?! by JinnyboyTV
Abuden is a lighthearted short by jinnyboytv, a newly launched youtube channel based in Malaysia; in their latest video, they present an amusing scenario that people like you and me would have definitely faced many times when we're interacting with friends and family- Asking obvious questions.
The video is a little silly but you'd be hard-pressed to not chuckle at some of their scenarios and relate it to somebody you know (or yourself). Our favorite part of the video was when a wife asked her snoring husband if he was sleeping, to which he replied that he was planking. Lol.
Thought Provoking Social Commentary
Limpeh is Foreign Talent by 'Limpeh'
LIFT (limpeh is foreign talent) is a personal blog of an opinionated and well travelled Singaporean, nicknamed 'Limpeh' (which means 'your father') who shares his impassioned views on social topics and issues (most notably education, relationships, career progression and current affairs) in Singapore and contrasts them against other countries that he has lived and worked in before.
Some of the more interesting and provocative subjects that Limpeh (no offense) discusses on his blog are
Mr Brown, and it contains educated arguments and provocative (albeit a little wordy) social rhetorics.
