One of the great things about having 72 hours of video uploaded every minute on YouTube, and likely a staggering amount on all the other sites as well, is that every week there’s something worth watching. Sure, there’s lots and lots not worth watching, but I’ll take even those small odds of seeing something good. In this week’s video compilation, TNT has made a sequel to their “A Dramatic Surprise,” which became one of the top 10 videos on YouTube in 2012, ZeFrank gives us “true facts” about the Tarsier, and we have people way smarter than me breaking down the “chicken or the egg” argument.

Some good old-fashioned stop-motion animation that is a feast for your eyeballs, courtesy of Kijek/Adamski.

As one who spent a lot of time working with 35mm projectors, their endangerment is sad. But I had no idea that planetarium projectors were also endangered, and there’s a guy who collects them. This comes from Cool Hunting:
Two extremely awesome YouTubers, Lindsey Stirling and Piano Guys, got together and did the famous theme to “Mission: Impossible,” complete with spy-like moves while playing their instruments. It’s pretty awesome, and it will shame everything you do today:
The people behind Call of Duty continue to make great trailers for their games. This time, they stick character actor Peter Stormare in one of their ads, playing a guy who is known as “The Replacer.” And it’s funny:
Epic Meal Time decided they were going to get epic with fish and chips, and so, they decided to make it really epic by kidnapping UK chef Jamie Oliver and drinking tons of Jack and Jameson:
This video plays out like an optical illusion. You are definitely not expecting to see what condition this car is in when it gets to the camera. But it has an endearing punchline:
