    It’s Never Too Early In the Morning to Procrastinate With This AVbyte Music Video

    The AVbyte Brothers sure do love their musical numbers, and "Procrastination: The Musical" might be their most impressive yet due of the sheer number of Youtube stars (plus Jason Schwartzman and John Hodgman) they were able to round up. Although, let's face it, they all probably had more important things they should have been doing at the time.

    When You Think About It, Link’s Really Just a Huge Jerk [Video]

    One of the classic tropes seen in The Legend of Zelda games involves protagonist Link running about, smashing this and that. Typically, the objects being smashed are pots, but he's not usually terribly particular. He's pretty much a big jerk about it, since he never sticks around to clean up his mess, and he's more than happy to smash things all over again if and when they're replaced. That's what Freddie Wong explores in his latest video, with the help of Lindsey Stirling as Link. That poor guard.

Though not too gross, the lactose intolerant amongst our readers may want to skip this one.

    Group Makes Skyrim Recipe, Sunlight Souffle, in Real Life [Video]

    As most people who pay attention to the Internet know, The Elder Scrolls series puts a lot of effort into their in-game books, and Skyrim is no exception. From intricately detailed stories spanning what can only be described as "too many pages," to descriptions on how to pick locks, the world within Skyrim has a bevy of information to divulge to those who actually want to read digital books instead of play the game in which said books exist. At least one book in Skyrim provides recipes, one of which Jimmy Wong, brother of Freddie Wong, and company chose to make in real life. Presenting, the Sunlight Souffle. Full recipe after the break.

    Freddie Wong Does Minecraft [Video]

    Maker of neat Internet videos Freddie Wong expresses a feeling we all experience when playing Minecraft: Unadulterated rage after a creeper blows us up and takes out a chunk of the intricate structure we just spent hours mapping out on graph paper then spent another few hours building. People who know Freddie Wong get to grab a huge gun and mow down a bunch of creepers though, whereas all we can do is rebuild the thing until it inevitably gets blown up again.

    Freddie Wong Genuinely Enjoys His Game-Inspired Commute [Video]

    Freddie Wong, the man who got caught up in the crossfire and did a speedrun of an airport is now giving us a little insight into his daily commute. Spoilers: It's awesome and heavily inspired by Grand Theft Auto. Despite the distinct lack of explosions or anything flashy in that way, the effects are pretty impressive. Unless of course, there are no effects and that was just footage of an actual commute for a documentary or something. Yeah, I like that option better.

    Cowboys, Aliens, and Freddie Wong [Video]

    In a surprising turn of events, director Jon Favreau apparently approached Freddie Wong and company to make a video to help promote the upcoming Cowboys and Aliens. According to Wong's post on Reddit, the entire project was Favreau's idea.

    Jon's kid apparently LOVES our stuff - they've been watching our videos for months. Jon wanted to do something with us so he basically pulled a bunch of weight and told Universal to let us do ANYTHING. That meant shooting on the Universal lot for free, props and wardrobe from the movie free for our use, equipment, etc. It was a dream come true. So we came up with a ridiculous concept where it was basically cowboys versus the FreddieW channel, and sent it by him, and he was totally down.
    How does this match-up of cinematic minds fair? Pretty dang good by the look of it. (via Reddit)

    Geeks are the Artistic Vanguard of the Internet: Freddie Wong and the Future of Film

    When Freddie Wong talks, he does it with the same frantic energy and humor that have made him famous. This is especially true when speaking about his decision to quit his old job, working on direct-to-DVD films and jump into working exclusively online. When faced with the proposition of another feature-length project, Wong said that he and Brandon Laatsch, his partner in the video arts, asked themselves if they could do something new. It was clear to them that the Internet was changing how the film business was done, and that they should be a part of it. "At the time, it felt like if Apple computer had just come out and we were typewriter salesmen," Wong said at the Blip.TV offices in Manhattan. "So, should we keep selling typewriters?"
