Steve Kardynal, best known for his Chatroulette performance art, including a spoof of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball,” is back to make Christmas dreams (or nightmares?) come true by dressing up in a sexy Santa outfit and serenading unsuspecting chatters with Mariah Carey’s version of “All I Want For Christmas.” Watching the array of reactions is the true gift. Best use of Chatroulette ever. [Gawker]
Chatroulette is still a thing. At least, it is for the infamous Chatroulette Guy who made one of the best viral videos the Internet has ever seen when he performed “Call Me Maybe” to unsuspecting folks on the video chat site. Now he’s back with his special take on Miley Cyrus’ fall hit “Wrecking Ball.” He’s got a sledgehammer, zero shame, and seems to have an actual wrecking ball attached to his ceiling for authenticity.
You win the Internet for the second time, sir! Until we meet again … [YouTube]
Remember the weird social experiment that was Chatroulette? It’s mostly populated with dudes who want to show their wangs to strangers, which is why we’re way more into the animal version of Chatroulette, appropriately titled Catroulette. Catroulette shows you tons of live video feeds of cats doing exactly what cats do — scratching themselves, grooming themselves, looking bored. But the best part? Every cat on Catroulette is up for adoption! Most of these cats seem to live in Germany or something (so international!). But even if you can’t adopt, it’s a great timewaster. So many adorable buddies! [Catroulette]
Somehow I’ve made it until just now before hearing the song “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen. I know, it’s really quite amazing that I’ve managed to avoid the most catchy, popular, ear-defying song of the moment. I’d planned on avoiding it forever, but then this video, featuring a mysterious bikini-ed man, made it’s way into my inbox, and I was forced to hear it. Is Chatroulette still a thing? Because I guess people are still on there, which is weird. But either way, if I had to hear “Call Me, Maybe,” I’m glad it happened this way — with a dude in drag freaking out a bunch of teenage boys on the Internet. [YouTube]
Anyone who’s ever used Chatroulette knows it doesn’t take long before your screen is infiltrated by pervs. Whether it’s a set of boobs unexpectedly popping up to say hello or someone’s man meat putting on a show, if you spend long enough on the site, you’ll see it all. In a strange celebration of the internet phenomenon, artist Justin Gignac put together Nudes of Chatroulette, a series of charcoal drawings modeled after some of the semi-naked strangers he’s met during his Chatroulette wanderings. The pieces will be on display in NYC tonight, but you can always check out Gignac’s muses on the internetz for free. [Boing Boing] Keep reading »
