kontraband.com is one of the strangest sites I've seen in some time. I have no idea how these people got their cats wedged into their noses, or why.

I can't believe this hasn't been posted here before. I get most of my video link emails from friends from this site. Very similar to eBaums (which, upon searching, has apparently never been posted here before either...)

Kinda looks for the most part like the sort of videos that get passed 'round the net all the time anyway.

This is absolute comic genius, though. Why didn't I see it during the actual US election?

Kontraband is out there with B3TA, eBaum's World and Milk and Cookies. I'm kinda surprised you've never heard of it. Maybe you've never heard of those 3 either, in which case many hours of amusement await.

Pretty Generic posted that video, arto. I played it pretty much nonstop on election day.

The cat thing is bizarre and the election video is a keeper.

that was amazing. Didn't Kontraband also used to do a whole string of those flash sabotage animations? You know, where you're fooled into looking closely at something for a while and then BAM! It's a screen cap from the ring with a loud scream or something?

I promise, I'm not crazy.

Man, that election video was straight gangsta!

Wow, I'm surprised I'd never been to that site before if it's so well known. Odd little video.

Oh, and that election video was *great*. Beautiful editing job.

Kitty snorting is just wrong! It's got to be stopped.

It is natural, wsg. What do you have against nature?

Well, as far as video mashups of the political variety go... Nothing I have seen has compared to the remarkable S11 Redux by GNN. Apologies if my linking is inelegant.
Check it out.

I lack the mefi quota, despite the years ogling at you wonderful folks... Tell you what, you do it ;)

Thanks for this. I came across Kontraband yesterday thanks to OpinioNate in the VW viral marketing thread. Such a great site.

This might have been an FPP, but it's the poo.

I posted this but it was deleted. Best link I ever posted.

If we make white kittens illegal, only the terrorists will have white kittens.

Right, I was pretty much insanely burnt out on all things political by then, what with the Canadian federal election, Alberta provincial one, civic elections, US elections and a Florida-esque vote fraud scandal in Calgary... Still, "We've got better hair! We've got better hair!"

it's fun to read though, thanks tellurian. Sort of Metafilter's Birth of the Snark!
