Pomp Culture - Video edition

Ever get the feeling that time is moving by fast, too fast in fact, much too fast to keep track of all the cool new videos, and hip new grooves? The feeling that if you faltered midstep for even a split-second, you'll get hit by a bus that's cooler, smarter, funner and ... well faster than you? No? You don't get that feeling? It's just me? That's cool too. It doesn't matter. I just wanted you to take time out of your busy little day to enjoy some sweet-ass video clips, running the gamut from art and culture, to binge-drinking and Alexander Hamilton, and of course Mormon fishes.

First off we have a clip from the Friends We Love Project. Featuring the infamous Poster Boy (official friend of Pomp)!

Next we have songstress Lykke Li showing the true meaning of Hustlin', all the while reminding me of the true meaning of "girl crush".

Lykke Li @ NTBR Part 4 - "Hustlin'" from Drew Innis on Vimeo.

And my crushes on Michael Cera and Alexander Hamilton can be satisfied with one Youtube video??? Where someone drunkenly recounts history, while others (maybe drunkenly maybe not, you decide) re-enact it.

I'm saving my personal favorite for last, the mormon narwhal video. My friends at Curious Expeditions helped me find this one, when we were having one of our late night, half-intelligible conversations about Youtube copycat tactics. How one video will spur a bunch of copycats, and how it's been that way for a while, no matter how apathetic and lazy we all supposedly are. This video below, is definitely one I wouldn't mind copycatting.

Let me know which one is your favorite, or let me know which videos you think should have made the cut instead.

drunk history is brilliant!!! michael cera was born to play alexander hamilton, no wonder he's not sure about playing in the arrested development movie.

given digital boom the history of the internet video on youtube is watchable.

The Lykki Li video where she is singing straight into the camera is amazing. Sinead O' style. I love her voice.

i know lykke li is hot and all, but drunk history is the clear winner here.
