Streets of Fury

If you have a soft spot for retro video games and the 8-bit aesthetic, you're going to have a great time with Streets Of Fury. In this entertaining video from Irish filmmaker Aiden McAteer, the bandana-sporting hero of a beat-'em-up game finds an unlikely ally. The retro-styling is perfect- right down to the music.

Poké Blinders

In another of their unlikely but inspired mash-ups, Mashed bring together the BBC period crime drama Peaky Blinders and Pokémon to create Poké Blinders. You've never seen Team Rocket quite like this before!

Cas Mini Recaps

The brilliant Cas Van De Pol has embraced YouTube's new shorts format (the site's effort to compete with TikTok) using it to create mini-recaps. Despite their brief running time, they've got more great gags packed in than lesser talents can manage in something many times their length. The first two cover Luca and Encanto.

Real Man

What makes a man a 'real man?'. According to this odd little music video from asdfmovie creator TomSka, being a skateboarding cow. And what day can't be improved by a skateboarding cow?  This video was directed by Tomska and Eddie Bowley animated by Wonchop, with additional animation by Mr Weebl. The music and vocals come via Todd ‘LilDeuceDeuce’ Bryanton.

The Best Day Of My Life | Tom Odell

There's something captivating, almost hypnotic about this music video for the track Best Day of My Life by British singer/-songwriter Tom Odell. Nexus Studio's video focuses on a single figure and the actual animation is pretty limited. So why can't we stop watching?
