Hacking Electronic Road Signs

CNN recently reported on electronic road signs being hacked. Even though I did not agree with the racist messages that appeared on some of the signs in the news video, some of the other signs that were shown were rather funny. During a long stressful drive to work in the morning, it might be nice to have a quick laugh.

I have no plans to hack into a road sign, but I did find the instructions on how to do it. I also found a video showing some funny messages that have been displayed in the past.

The Little Drummer Boy

A friend recently sent me a video of a four year boy playing the drums. His name is Howard Wong, and he appears to be a drum prodigy.

The popular video shows Howard playing the drums to Joan Jett’s “I Hate Myself For Loving You” in a shopping center. Is he smiling at his family filming him, or is he a true rocker smiling at the groupies in the crowd? My favorite part is at the 2:06 mark when he hits the sticks together with perfect timing.

After a little research, I found several other videos showing off Howard’s skills when he was younger. He went from playing “Old McDonald Had A Farm” when he was 18 months old to playing on stage with a father’s band when he was three years old. What is next for Howard when he turns five years old?

In the midst of recalls and car issues, Toyota has produced a series of funny viral videos for their Sienna. The idea behind the videos is to suggest that families can still have swagger while driving a minivan.

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day. To celebrate, I thought I would share a popular video that a frient sent to me several years ago.

Two brothers, Tucker and Brad, want to take a photo as a gift for their mom. What happens when one brother doesn’t want to cooperate? They both end up acting like brothers.

Happy Mother’s Day!


Viral Wedding Announcement Videos

Since today is Valentine’s Day, I thought I would share something creative I recently saw about weddings.

I have no idea who Jeff and Erin are, but this couple made an outstanding “movie trailer” to share as a “save the date” reminder for their friends and family. This video sets the bar high for any video version of a wedding invitation reminder.

Since Jeff and Erin’s video was so impressive, I searched YouTube to see if I could find any other “save the date” videos. Even though nothing compared to Jeff and Erin, I did come across several videos that were enjoyable to watch.

I also have no idea who Ben and Becca are, but they made a short video several years ago to announce their wedding; their invitation made me laugh, so I decided to share it.

Robert and Lindsay, another couple I found on YouTube, created two movie trailer wedding invitation videos.

Finally, Cory and Stephanie hired a professional film studio based in Canada to create their wedding invitation video. The production value is obviously high, but it seems to lack something special the others have.

Happy Valentine’s Day.

American Idol Spawns A New Hit Song

What happens if you wear oversized pants without a belt? Your pants will fall down.

General Larry Platt wrote a song about the popular trend. Even though Platt was too old to compete in the singing contest, the 62 year old musician was allowed to appear on “American Idol” this season to sing “Pants On The Ground.” Instantly, the song about looking like a fool became a hit.

“Pants On The Ground” has been remixed by several different artists and uploaded to YouTube. Jimmy Fallon performed the song as Neil Young. Jimmy Fallon performed the song with American Idol judge Randy Jackson. After defeating the Dallas Cowboys in the playoffs, Brett Farve celebrated with a “Pants On The Ground” chant. Who’s next?

There was a contest awhile back on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” in which fans were asked to create a dance for the television show. Even though Alton Hood’s dance, The Jimmy Fallon Dip, did not win, he remixed the song and put together a music video for YouTube.

Earlier this week, Alton Hood and The First Family were on the television show to teach Jimmy Fallon their dance.
