We recently spotted this truck painted with a graffiti art homage to Oscar the Grouch on West 47th Street in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood. The trash can-dwelling Oscar is one the iconic group of puppet characters from the long-running and popular children’s television series Sesame Street. Graffiti and street artists have often made made use of characters from pop culture, as in this example inspired by South Park.
This video is a treat and a bit of a guilty pleasure. It’s the trailer for the new season of the Danish television show Dumt & Farligt, which translates as “Stupid & Dangerous” in English. In the clip, a variety of mundane and unusual objects, large and small, are smashed, exploded, set ablaze crashed or otherwise destroyed. Each destructive event is shot by a camera at 2500 frames-per-second and played in slow motion, allowing the viewer to see immense detail and movement that’s usually too fast or small for the naked eye to grasp.
