Featured Video Site Section is now a monthly spot. Sorry to dissappoint and to reneg on our original promise of updated every couple weeks. Maybe we will get back to that at some point in the future. For now enjoy the videos amd read our original promise to you below!
These sites are hand picked by the Generally Awesome Staff. We try to featuring a new site every week or two. All sites feature videos, videos that we think are pretty awesome. We try to balance it out between the funny, cool, hot, awesome videos sites that are already pretty well-known and the smaller, original, quirky, unique sites that are tucked away on the internet. We hope that you enjoy these links.
The Interesting Videos section on The Hatch Report is a random collection of videos of many different types. Some are interesting in that they are pretty strange or odd. Other videos are interesting by virtue of them being off-beat funny. Some of these video clips are a little creepy, and still others can give a different insight into the world around us.
Clark & Michael
Clark and Michael is a cool documentary style show starring Michael Cera of Arrested Development and Juno fame and another guy named Clark. The premise is that they are writing partners trying to come up with a script. It is worth a watch at least once just to scene the opening title sequence.
Longboard Skateboard Movie
OrangeFist Longboard Movie is a film by some people who work in reality TV. They basically travelled around and went longboarding in different places and made a film about it. Pretty fun, you should check out this trailer video and if you like it, support it with a purchase.

Whether you want to watch skateboard video clips online for free or you want to purchase skateboarding DVD's and videos for entertainment or instructional purposes, this page has great links.

The collection of awesome videos includes some fake tv ads we have made as well as fake commercial spots from other creators. Also, there are some real adverstisements that are funny or cool, or use created ads for real products. You can sort it all out.
Galacticast is full of parodies, spoofs, spin offs and many other movie related humor videos. As the groups name suggests, they deal primarily in lampooning and spoofing SciFi, but also throw in references to horror films and action movies as well. The group has been around for about a year now, and look to be going strong in the funny video business.
Update Their website is down right now, so I am providing a link to a third party site to allow you to still see some of their stuff. If their show makes it to TV, maybe the site will come back?
Nobody's Watching is a website dedicated to original videos that poke fun of the whole world of TV. Features include great spoofs of less-than-the-best TV shows. Aside from videos there are some pretty funny photos of these guys at red carpet events, etc. All in all it is an awesome place to watch videos and laugh!
The Television has all kinds of funny videos you can watch, plus they give you the ability to download them to your iPod (not that GenerallyAwesome condones that kind of thing)!

Will it Blend:
Will It Blend? That is the question! The guys at Blendtek try to answer this question is a series of videos. In each video they take something pretty outlandish and try to blend it up. The results are pretty awesome. Check out their site for a full list or see our favorites: What Will it Blend Next?.
Ultimate Showdown of Destiny:
"Ultimate Showdown of Destiny" is an animated music video portraying various celebrity matches. The showdowns become increasingly random, and at first this is a little unsettling. However, after a minute the viewers mind stops thinking too hard about the implications of these random match-ups and the video just washes over you. Overall it's a very creative and awesome animated video!
Olde English is another New York City area humor group. They have some great videos (many of which we have slipped into our revver video widgets on the site). There are even more great, hilarious videos to see if you go to their site.
Sam Parker Revue:
I love this set of videos because some of them have the look and feel of being filmed in someone's empty apartment in Brooklyn or something. Still the flair, style and humor come through in these videos by the Sam Parker Revue .
This site, even if you never watch a video, will be a visual treat. It it is a collage of stills from 1001 of the most popular/highest rated videos on YouTube.com. The images are very small, but when you mouse over information, links and a larger thumbnail pop-up to let you decide whether or not you still want to watch the video. I know that you will also be amazed by CoverPop.com and this cool page. You can even use his Amazon.com CoverPop ad banner button to make some money (see site for details).
Public Domain Comedy:
After a certain time creative works fall into the public domain, meaning that they are free for anyone to use without any copyright restrictions. The site PDcomedy features funny videos of this kind. They were made some time ago, but are still very funny. Enjoy PDcomedy.com classic humor and funny videos, with Lucy, Fred Astaire, Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and more celebrities of the past!
GrindTV Snowboarding Videos!:
I love snowboarding. It is so much fun and can be challenging if you push yourself. While it is more fun to do than watch, it is still pretty fun to watch the pros, especially in the summer when there is no snow! Check out GrindTV.com snowboarding videos. They have tons of videos from other extreme sports, too.

What do you do when you have a giant surplus of Mentos mints,
Diet coke, and spare time? Well apparently you make your own version of the Water Show at the Bellagio Hotel. Watch this mad science experiment at EepyBird.com
Product Invasion Fake Commercials & Videos:
Reality TV has become a scourge on our society. Very low brow, this form of entertainment plays on the basic human desire to watch other people make complete fools of themselves. A group of Reality TV writers (yes, those shows have writers) are biting the hand that feeds them by spoofing the Reality Genre's need to embrace commercial endorsements. Visit Product Invasion
Weasel Breath Videos:
This loveable comic strip character makes his pick on some videos that might really be called Weird Videos. He also gives an instructional series about becoming a stunt man called How To Stunt
Trunk Monkey Ads:
Trunk Monkey An auto dealership in Oregon called Suburban auto group put together these ads. They are hilarious. Enjoy their commercials, which presumably were aired only locally. Who knows, this might even be a good place to buy a car?
Worms Eye Films:
WormsEyeFilms.com First off, the site design is awesome. It has elements similar to some GenerallAwesome sites (the notebook look is similar to WeaselBreath.com and the wood panel is similar to GenerallyAwesome.com banner.
