It sounds dumb, but the reactions are great. Give it a watch.

The popularity of dubstep and the fruit ninja app has spawned this finest of video projects: Fruit Ninja in Real Life to Dubstep.

 

Though frankly, I don't know how much fruit that guy consumes. Granted, maybe that's the reason he's the Fruit Ninja. 

 

The video's broken 4 million views on YouTube, but we all know what was really trending on the day the world was supposed to end.

Google's trying to make cars that can drive themselves. The SPCA, on the other hand, is teaching dogs to drive. 

 

Pardon me if I don't write them a check the next time I see one of their commercials. They've obviously got enough money if they're using it to teach dogs to drive to make a commercial. Though it's really interesting, I'll give them that.

With the passing of Dave Brubeck on Wednesday, one of the greatest innovators in jazz history is gone. 

 

Fortunately, there are decades of recordings, including this 1966 video of one of his best known hits, Take 5.

If your collection is missing the legendary Time Out, you're missing something special.
