Alright, say it. These videos are down-right screwy.

CONCATENATION, an experimental video by Donato Sansone, with sound and music by Enrico Ascoli (1 minute, composed of stock video clips, assembled in a Rube Goldberg type video, with implied violence). Not familiar with Goldberg? Here, he'll show you how to get Something for Nothing (previously). See also: 787 Cliparts by Oliver Laric, a short, silent animation. [Videos 1 & 3 from Kottke]

The lead video has an abundance of kinetic violence to people and things, avoid if you are not feeling keen on seeing car crashes, guns, slow motion bullets, boxing punches, etc. (This is a warning I wish I'd had before I clicked.)

And in case YouTube's algorithm doesn't love you enough to recommend the always-delightful Numberphile (previously) after this:

CONCATENATION. 17 || 29 = (17 x 100) + 29 = 1729.

These two videos (not including the Goldberg) are perfect examples of natural human intelligence manipulating a load of images versus the so-called artificial intelligence image manipulation. No comparison.

Sorry I didn't consider that.

Mods, could you edit the OP to state "(1 minute, composed of stock video clips, assembled in a Rube Goldberg type video, with implied violence)"? Thanks!

Donato Sansone also did ghostCRASH (tw: genuine car crash footage), a short compilation of crashes with one car removed. Genuinely eerie.

Reminds me of PES for some reason.

This has a strong sesame street/electric company vibe

this has echoes of György Pálfi‘s great Final Cut Ladies and Gentlemen (entire movie free on vimeo). previously
