A lotta hot air

YouTube user lem0ns2lime aka Carlos C. likes supercuts. Let's start with Muse - Explorers (5:49), which was cut down to 20 seconds without lyrics, just breaths. Then the video of Muse in concert was truncated down to 15 seconds long. That really built up the tension and energy, so let's amp it up with a bunch of gasping WWF and WCW wrestlers from the 1980s (previously), and there's the sequel, Absolutely No Words 2. If you like your wrestlers with laughing (via rough edits), you might enjoy Jim the Laugh Machine (aka Jim the Anvil Neidhart, with extra laughter).

Bandcamp apparently linked to the original Absolutely no Words four months ago, when their site was down for maintenance.

This is surprisingly disturbing.

Am I in a minority? I find the concept of these clips genuinely funny and I'm impressed by the creativity, but at the same time, I am unable to relate to a human being who would sit through four minutes.

I feel the same way, cribcage. I love that supercuts exist, but have never watched an entire video. Just knowing they're out there somewhere is comforting.

Jesus Christ. This is like something out of a horror movie.

This is the most intense thing I've seen so far today.

The best part of these is that you have to consciously remind yourself to breathe when you watch them. Otherwise, you'll forget to in some sort of sympathetic non-inhale thing.

These wrestling ones are incredible! They sound like they could be Tetsu Inoue pieces.
