To kick start Hashtag Season 3 of The Anne Hirsch Show, Anne and her crew embarked on a roadtrip to Darling for the annual Rocking the Daisies festival. Says Anne, “We made so many new #besties and basically had THE BEST TIME IN THE WORLD EVER and we didn’t even have to twerk.” Our favourite parts were the Norwegian speaking “Xhosa”, and Anne brushing her teeth with someone else’s tooth brush.
Earlier this month we featured Tyson, an English Bulldog from Johannesburg who was kicking significant portions of ass on the internet via his Bulldogs Be Fancy Tumblog. Tyson’s star has continued its rise, with the costume-keen hound appearing in an ever-burgeoning raft of local ads. Here’s his latest appearance, for an Mnet campaign.
Welcome to our new favourite YouTube channel: Hard Eddy’s Gaad To Laaf (guide to life). Here’s the description under the first video: “Boet, subscraab to my chennel, or I will drib you in the flippin’ face. Simple. As. That. Subscribe to my Gaad to Laaf and your laaf will be much less kak. Schweet, boytjies and binnets. One taam.”
“I wasn’t going to write this letter, but today i’ve been dodging phone calls from various industry blogs who wished me to remark upon your having said your career was designed to be similar to mine … So this is what I need to say … And it is said in the spirit of fatherliness and with love.”
This was roped to the traffic light on the corner of Strand and Adderley in Cape Town this morning. There you go. Just enjoy that. I’d love to know what the story behind that one is. Anyone care to have a go at guessing the scenario behind that headline in the comments section?
The latest episode of Zach Galifianakis’ web series, ‘Between Two Ferns’ features one Justin Bieber, esq. The insert is comprised of the usual layering of offensive and awkward questions followed by pregnant silences – so far, so good. And then Zach stands up, belllows “You’re too young to be smoking pot and pee-peeing in buckets and driving up and down the highway fast! I don’t think your mom would really mind if a stranger beat her son.”, and beats Bieber with his belt.
Meet Tyson. He’s an English bulldog, and he lives in Johannesburg. His owner has a minor obsession with dressing Tyson up, which has led to the foundation of the Bulldogs Be Fancy tumblog. Coincidentally, your work day just got shot to pieces. Here’s a small selection of our favourites: CLICK HERE to see them all. […]
Remember how bad the acting was in the last Samsung ad? College Humor has taken the liberty of summing up all the reasons why every tech ad you’ve ever seen is the same. There are a lot of bright lights, like a lot, and repetition, did we mention the bright lights? And check out all of these young people, they have really interesting and creative jobs.
Watch this Tetris Sprinter, who goes by the name Keroco, own this game like a boss! Here’s a break down. Tetris sprinters try to clear 40 lines in as little time as possible. Keroco clears 40 lines in a mind boggling, 19.68 seconds. According to Mental Floss this is the first time someone has broken the 2o second barrier. Check it.
This runaway-train-on-fire is reaching such exquisite levels of ineptitude that we are now wholly convinced that the entire enterprise is a subversive satirical comedy channel to rival the best in the world. Take this ANN7 job ad, for example.
This terrific pair is named Biggy and Mouse. Biggy is the big guy, Mouse is the guy with the mullet. Biggy & Mouse reign with an iron fist from Port Elizabeth. Because Port Elizabeth. Look, they’re no Jack Parow, but you have to give them points for enthusiasm.
This guy isn’t selling a bed, only his side of a bed. The other side still belongs to his “brand new ex-wife”. The ad states that the owner of the other side (the ex-wife) doesn’t mind sharing the bed with complete strangers, but there are other people out there who may be able to claim squatter’s rights on his side, as they spent more time there than he did.
YouTube has brought us many things to be thankful for over the years, Justin Bieber, Charlie Bit My Finger, Antoine Dodson, and a myriad of cat videos. Don’t pretend you haven’t seen “Funny Cats in Water, EPIC,” it has 65,344,947 views. Whether you love these YouTube sensations or hate them, we all have one thing […]
We’ve found a real-life wizard! Well…wizardry is the only way we can explain this magical video that showed up on Vine a couple of days ago. This wizard goes by the name “JehReh” and is able to make his son appear and disappear into thin air – Check out the video and see for yourself! […]
It may only be August, but Vine is pumping out such a volume of excellent video that it is entirely necessary to bring you an update on the the best Vine videos for 2013. It’s impossible to only watch a couple of seconds of this compilation, hence we bring you 11 minutes of joy.
Who said rock is reserved for the young? Here we have one times Mary, putting on a delightful little performance at a percussion store in Wisconsin, America. We were particularly fond of the offbeat snare work.

You know the drill: a dude in a suit smashes his fist of fury through a wooden board, and everyone goes, “Aaaah!” Except that this guy fails, and fails again. And when he does manage to move a board, he kicks it into the head of a small child watching the demonstration. Quality.
Whether by pure coincidence, or by the sheer power of a repeatedly ad-libbed line, Denzel Washington finds himself making a guarantee of some kind in almost every movie he acts in. Here’s a supercut of those fine moments. Enjoy that.
Having obviously noted the riotous success of our Naughty Hipster competition, the very excellent duo that is Derick Watts And The Sunday Blues Band have released their latest locally-produced parody video, and it is a goodie. Watch the whole thing. All of Nic’s tattoos are real. Which makes this video ironic, and perhaps a little bit meta. […]
Full time political analyst and part-time puppet, Chester Missing made an appearance on 2oceansvibe Radio on Friday afternoon. The interview started off well enough, but quickly degenerated into a bout of mudslinging and petty personal attacks.
This may just be the cutest thing we’ve ever seen. Jiff the next Wonder Dog is an adorable Pomeranian with mad skills. In the video above, the fluff-ball shows us his talents from handstands to skateboarding. The star has gleaned over 500,000 likes on his personal Facebook page and also has an agent incase the 3-year-old […]
Feeling like something sweet? This man can create huge flowers out of the famous carnival snack, candy floss. From colouring to creating divine petals that are good enough to eat, this is the best way to make food entertaining. The man’s skill uses of the machine and pure concentration, and it’s what gets him into […]
Thank you, Siobhan Riley! It’s not everyday we get t0 laugh at other peoples expense, so when it’s acceptable, we go full throttle. In a news broadcast for ABC 12, the news reporter from Michigan mistakenly draws a very obvious penis when mapping out a construction zone. It’s immature and hilarious but it’s circling the Internet as […]
Well this will get you through to lunch time a little quicker! The ninth episode of Oliver Hermanus’ FOBLO (“fear of being left out”) Bulletin has dropped. This week the bulletin takes aim at the Cape Town internet institution that is Whale Cottage.
This honest-to-goodness business card was spotted by the brother of 2oceansvibe staffer, Dean Delaney in Mordor (AKA Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal). This is definitely the best marriage of name and profession that we have ever seen.
And they said only women can multi-task… John Marek, a young musician, is tearing up YouTube with his drum, guitar combo and vocal performance. The lightweight plays his electric guitar whilst he strums his git, holds down some awesome beats and sings along. In the almost 3 days the video has been online, it has stacked […]
Welcome to Thursday! The eighth episode of Oliver Hermanus’ FOBLO (“fear of being left out”) Bulletin has dropped. The hipster guide was a particular treat. And the JP Smith Nazi accent.
Armed with just a microphone, Thum pushes the limits of the human voice to create incredible soundtracks of impossible beats and phenomenal sounds, with scratched vinyl, the Michael Jackson back-catalogue, the didgeridoo and an entire fifties jazz band amongst his vocal repertoire.
