Friday Randoms - The One With The Best Random Dirt Video Ever

This morning we happened to come across an absolute gem in the Dirt video vault, and seeing as it’s about as random as you can get we thought it would be perfect for kicking off this week’s randoms…

Way back in 2007 the legend that was ‘Billy The Web’ started turning up at the Dirt office, unpaid, and aside from making cups of tea he also liked to undertake various projects, and more often than not they were completely random. This particular one is perhaps our favourite ever. I almost wet myself laughing at the time, and it still amuses me just as much to this day. Anyway, before you get to the video, here’s the background to this project…

“I’ve never worked in an office before, and believe it or not, it can get quite stressful here at Dirt sometimes. I needed to relax somehow, so I decided to make a pair of relaxation boots, the idea being that I can dangle upside down for a bit and just chill out. Anyway, I tried them out for the first time this morning and it proved anything but relaxing…”

Talking of cats, it looks like they are in the running for taking over as mans best friend.

Mental. I still can’t understand the pleasure in this.

He’s a rapper and he don’t even know it.

Baby boom.

This ain’t no spoof, this was a real video made by the Danish government in order to try and encourage young people to vote. If only more governments did stuff like this.

Not sure we’ll be seeing this swimming costume in the Sports Illustrated calendar.

Top save.

dog
Giant dog, or dog shaped bush?

Rednecks and vehicles with far too much power. Always a good combo, but has nobody ever told them it is much easier with a plough.

schmuck
Something makes me think you’ve got to be a bit of an idiot to shop at this jewellers.

Random, but pretty cool.

What do you get when you cross stupid pogo sticks with equally stupid people? This…

And staying with the stupid theme we will let Garbage play us out this week with their classic ‘Stupid Girl’.

Have a good weekend folks!
