Rihanna’s ‘Stay’ video without music is just a super uncomfortable bath

Rihanna‘s music video for “Stay” features the singer taking a very angsty bath, which turns out to be a great look for RiRi. But take away the music, and she just seems physically uncomfortable

The water sloshing around the tub and her skin squeaking against porcelain strip any serenity away from a relaxing bath. Her moans are no longer directed at an irresistible paramour, rather they seem to be an indictment of the water’s temperature. Is too hot? Too cold? Please explain your suffering…

LONDON — A referendum on the EU by the end of 2017 and the introduction of the Investigatory Powers Bill, giving police greater powers to target online communications, were among the measures proposed during the Queen’s Speech Wednesday.

The package of proposals, which was prepared by ministers and read out by the Queen, also included more devolution for Scotland, a ban on legal highs and a halt on income tax raises for five years.

A super-buff kangaroo has been stalking an Australian suburb

A surprisingly buff kangaroo has been hanging out in a neighbourhood of Brisbane, Australia, intimidating locals on the golf course, flexing and generally impressing everyone with his massive physique.

Nicknamed “Big Buck,” the animal looks to be around 2 metres tall and could weigh up to 95 kilograms — in other words, this guy is super swoll.

“He’s very intimidating, he’s a big boy,” Linda Hellyer, who spotted the grey roo when walking her dogs, told Seven News on Friday. “We turned the…

10 horror remakes that actually don’t suck

At this stage, when we hear that one movie or another is being remade, we hardly bat an eye, so desensitized we have become to these rehashed versions of films we love. Too often it seems that these movies miss the point of the original, skip over all the things that made the first ones great, or just plain aren’t very good. This especially seems to be the case with horror movies. And with a new Poltergeist hitting theaters this week (and not screening in advance in most areas, which is…

NBD: Just an insane jet engine strapped to a 1929 replica biplane

Acrobatics pilot Jeff Boerboon is gracefully pivoting in front of me as he raises his hands over his head. Then he arches his body sideways and turns both hands, palms out to the left, like Superman executing an in-air maneuver. Boerboon is, in fact, performing an intricate dance, one that could be replicated hundreds of feet in the air as he pilots the one-of-a-kind Screamin’ Sasquatch Waco biplane, a classic–looking airplane with the unique distinction of having a Learjet engine strapped…

If ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ happened in the world of ‘Mario Kart’

“It’s-a me! Mad Max!”

A new twist on the original Mad Max: Fury Road trailer imagines what the film might be like if it took place in the Mario Kart universe. What if Fury Road was littered with cartoon-like banana peels, and giant chain-chomps that cause explosions? The results are pretty awesome

Some of the details are very subtle, though — like the Bowser brand and the cold coins — so you may need to go back and watch this twice.

Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’ video is even better with animated octopi and robots

Two words: twerking burgers

Students at the University of Newcastle in Australia were asked to animate 52 frames of Taylor Swift‘s “Shake It Off” music video using the rotoscope method, a technique that involves drawing over the footage by hand.

The results are a wild, beautiful mix of artistic styles and weird creatures like octopus ballerinas, robots and dancing burger-people.

If there were any way to improve upon T.Swift’s work, this is it.
