    1400279460

    In the 2000s, the musical mashup genre saw a peak of popularity with releases like The Grey Album from Danger Mouse that mixed The Beatles and Jay-Z. UK artist James Pursey from Carwow decided to take the same concept of shoehorning two disparate things together but applied the concept to cars. ...

    Video: Wacky video shows Volkswagen putting the man into manufacturing
    1400014680

    The Volkswagen Golf is one of Europe's preeminent vehicles. It's regularly one of the top sellers, and the latest, seventh generation appears to be one of the best ever. It was even named the 2013 World Car of the Year. So how do you sell a car that everyone knows about with over 30 million ...

    Video: Watch this video, then buy this 1993 Volvo wagon
    1399939200

    Do you want to be perceived as rich and cuddly? Of course you do. Then you need to buy this car. We know it makes no sense, but that pretty much sums up our take on the video you'll see below, in which a man by the name of Christoffer Castor, from Scania County in Southern Sweden, attempts to ...

    Video: Godzilla stops off for a little Italian in new Fiat ad
    1399410120

    Fiat is really trying to push its five-door 500L, which has gotten off to a rather disappointing first year of sales. The Italian brand's first big-name effort involved rapper P. Diddy and a pair of very unfortunate desert pedestrians. Now, it's gone even bigger (quite literally), teaming up with ...

    Video: Peel and Ford Transit do a great Austin Powers impression
    1399334400

    It's no secret that the average fullsize cargo van is big. Like, really big. Expressing that size, though, without actually seeing the van in question, is a pretty tall order. When viewed from the right angle, even something as big as a cargo van can appear very small (look up forced perspective, ...

    Video: Veeps take DC in yellow Corvette Stingray
    1399308240

    If you caught this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner last night, you probably saw mostly the same kind of thing you'd see every year: government officials and Washington reporters making fun of each other. It's a bit like a Comedy Central roast, only played out by people who, let's face ...

    Video: Mental Floss shares the meaning behind car names
    1399046280

    Why did Toyoda name his company "Toyota?" What does "Audi" mean? What the heck is a Camaro? You might know the answers to some of these questions, and you might not. But even if you do, you'll want to take a look at this video from Mental Floss. Over the course of seven minutes (it's an 8:16 ...

    1398980700

    We're going to be talking about Jerry Seinfeld and his excellent web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, for quite a long time, as it's been picked up for four more seasons.

    Video: 2015 Ford Mustang stars in bizarrely awesome '80s aerobics video
    1398876300

    For reasons we can't comprehend, here's a music video starring the all-new, 2015 Ford Mustang and a number of dancers dressed and styled in the most stereotypically 1980s way possible. The dancers then take part in a male-versus-female dance off. Again, we've no idea why it exists. It's weird, ...

    Video: Subaru XV runs over dog in Russian ad, but in a funny way
    1398556560

    In case you're wondering, no, the woman didn't actually hit the dog. This is just a commercial, and a fairly clever one after you get over the perceived canicide, that's meant to show off the desirability of Subaru's lifted Impreza wagon, the XV Crosstrek. We'll try not to spoil it for you, ...

    1398373020

    Can-Am has added another pair of stars to its advertising push for the three-wheeled Spyder motorcycle. After showing former NHL star Mark Messier guaranteeing a number of things (playing on his guarantee of winning a crucial game in the Stanley Cup playoffs in 1994), the company has hired ...

    Video: GoPro learned to hoop from Meadowlark Lemon
    1398279420

    Wait, wait, wait. We promise that there's something to do with cars in this story. Really, there is. It also, though, features some basketball antics. And the entire thing is possible thanks to the magic that is the GoPro. Strategically situated, the little cameras capture David Kalb, a master ...

    Video: Hyundai presents 70 movies in 10 minutes... and it's very strange
    1398211260

    It's not often we can use the term "trippy" to describe anything we post here at Autoblog, but this German video, promoted by Hyundai and starring the brand's European-spec i10 is trippy, surreal and totally bizarre. And we love it. Movie buffs will appreciate this ridiculous mix of classic ...

    Video: Watch the boys from Hot Rod hoon a Corvette worthy of a sinkhole
    1398200520

    Have you read Mike Harley's awesome write up of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible yet? The car Harley tests is the polar opposite of what you see above. Yes, the boys from Hot Rod Magazine's Roadkill series are back, and this time they're driving the world's worst Corvette from ...

    Video: Worst car unloading attempt ever is quick and painful
    1397580240

    Here's a fun fact: not all automotive calamities in Russia are caught on dash cam. Occasionally, someone with just a cell phone captures some gold, like this woeful attempt at unloading what appears to be a Lada. First of all, as with most jobs, having the correct tool for the task makes the ...

    Video: 'Qashqai' so hard to pronounce even Nissan is poking fun at it
    1397518140

    In the US, there aren't a lot of vehicle names that are very difficult to pronounce. Maybe the Volkswagen Touareg might trip up a few people, but by and large, we've got it pretty easy. Our friends in Europe, though, have a bigger challenge, thanks to vehicles like the Nissan Qashqai. Yes, ...

    Video: Watch these workers ghost-ride the garbage truck with purpose
    1397174400

    There's an old phrase that suggests we "work smarter, not harder." This garbage truck driver must have read that as "work like a monumental idiot, not harder." The sanitation worker in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico basically ghost-rides his garbage truck while running to grab bags that have been left ...

    1397156340

    Unless you yourself are a parent – and even then – being forced to watch videos of other people's kids is a special kind of torture. But every once in a while we come across a clip that makes us smile instead of scowling or rolling our eyes. This is one of those clips. In this video, ...

    Video: Ford Australia pulls the ol' talking car prank
    1396897260

    Siri from Apple has proven that being able to talk to your technology doesn't always work perfectly. But what if it could eventually go far enough to give a personality to inanimate objects like our cars? Ford took just this path to comedic effect by playing a prank on many unsuspecting ...

    Video: Saturday Night Live lampoons GM CEO Mary Barra's testimony before Congress
    1396888380

    A whole lotta spotlights are being turned on General Motors because of the automaker's recent recall issues. Following John Stewart's skewering of the Chevrolet Cobalt issue, Saturday Night Live is the latest to wonder - in its parodic way - "WTF?" Last weekend's episode opened with a skit that ...
