Watch Korean Girls React to American Snacks

korean_american_snacks.jpg

Americans react to food from X country videos have been big on the Internet in the past few years thanks to BuzzFeed's video team and their addictive two-minute vignettes (I know, I watched one to refresh my memory for this story and ended up in an hour-and-a-half BuzzFeed hole). They're good, in a it's two-in-the-morning-and-I'm-writing-a-blog-post kind of way, but you have to remember through all of that patriotic food eating that American food can get pretty weird too.

And that's what this video of Korean women eating American snacks shows.

It's an good look at our country's weirdest snacks (smores Goldfish, Pop Tarts, etc.), narrated by Microsoft Bob's Cousin. Check it out after the jump.

College Humor on Why Tipping Should Be Banned

collehge_humor_tipping.jpg
Mmmmm, yes

Internet humor has changed a lot in the last five years. There's really no more big sketch groups (they all got hired into Hollywood or SNL), and now the last remaining groups focus on writing more than anything else.

Even College Humor, the website that got me through my formative years, has slowed down their production. But every once in awhile, they come out with a good video, and this is one of those good videos: College Humor explains why the history of tipping, and why it's kind of dumb.

sriracha_video.jpg
Peppers

I remember the days where Huy Fong Foods CEO David Tran was media shy. Then, even thinking of doing a video inside the sriracha factory was a ridiculous idea. But look at where we are now: It happened, and not by Vice or BuzzFeed or us, but by Hypebeast.

Hypebeast, the fashion website.

So here it is everyone, this is how sriracha, one of the biggest hot sauces ever is made. Just check the video out after the jump.

5 Things to Do with Pancake Mix When You Realize Pancakes Are Horrible

pancake_funnel_cake.jpg

I've been pretty vocal about about my disdain for pancakes for awhile now (Need a refresher? Check out my 2013 list of the five most overrated foods), but that doesn't mean I still have a container of pancake mix laying around my kitchen somewhere. Really, it just means that container is kind of old.

If you're also turned off the worst breakfast starch ever (seriously, crepes, waffles, and even toast is better), but don't want to waste a bunch of food like me, check out this video of five other things you can do with pancake mix. Now, most of the preparations rely on the fact that "pancake" mix, is basically just a standard mix of flour, a leavening agent, oil, and dried eggs with some sugar added, but hey, it's better than just throwing it out.

Hilariously, the tastiest looking preparation is a type of pancakes. Maybe I should stop hating..

This Is How You Make a Fried Mac and Cheese Bun

mac_and_cheese_bun.jpg

I'm starting to get sick of unnecessary food combinations made up to build hype (See: Wafflegato, Ramen Burger. Milky buns get a pass because they should've always existed), and I think that the trend is finally on the way out.. mostly because it's starting to lose its luster.

But,like with any trend, as food combinations start to die, there are bound to be some final, parting good ideas. Today, Foodbeast, our favorite Santa Ana-based food blog, brings you one of those in the fried mac and cheese burger bun, born from the not-so-far-away city of Torrance.

Now. before any of you complain, let me defend the bun. You're already eating a bunch of starch, why not add some more cheese to the burger?

The rest is in the video, so get at it!

Watch 13 Dogs and a Cat Have a Holiday Feast

holiday_feast.jpg
This is what's happening

Animals with human hands has always kind of creeped me out (See: One of the kids shows I watched when I was young), but this video of 13 dogs and a cat eating while people wave their arms around honestly isn't so bad.

It's actually a lot neater then the majority of the holiday dinners I've been a part of. Have you seen 30 fraternity members and their plus ones eat? This is a lot easier to clean up afterwards than that.

But anyways, that's enough from me. Check out the video after the jump while I wish I had enough free time to have some kind of pet.

Crisp Concert Is So Good, It Almost Makes Christmas Music Bearable

crisp_concert.jpg

I spent five years in college working retail, so suffice it to say, I absolutely hate Christmas music. Very little can repair five seasons worth of hour after hour of merriment. Green tea Pocky? Well, in this video, it almost does it.

Check this masterfully edited piece from Glico, the company that brings us Pocky and many other Japanese snacks. They've sampled the sound from people eating their snacks and have turned it into.. well, some weird liminal space between heaven and hell that's not purgatory.

It's almost good, even..

PES, the animator behind some of the Internet's best food-themed videos is used to a little bit of attention.

Now, he's back with another videos, this time focused on the submarine sandwich.

Like his others, it's intense mesmerizing. And while you might not completely understand it, it does get you thinking. But about what exactly? No one knows. Check it out after the jump.

Watch a Golden Retriever and a German Shepherd Compete in a Spaghetti-Eating Competition

spaghetti_competition.jpg
You can already kind of tell..

All my life, I thought I ate spaghetti pretty quickly. I mean, I sort of eat like a duck -- light on the chew, heavy on the swallow and stomach-ache-time quickly afterward. If I really wanted, I could probably finish a plate in three minutes.

But man, I have nothing on these dogs. I didn't grow up with pets, so I didn't even think a golden and a german shepherd would be particularly down for pasta, but, well, you just have to watch I guess.

Conan O'Brien and Jordan Schlansky Go to Intelligentsia

conan_coffee.jpg
"Help me"

Since Conan made the move the basic cable, I've thought that his best bits were his remotes and his segments with his staff, especially the ones with associate producer (?) Jordan Schlansky. Schlansky dead pan not-so-straight man is a perfect sounding board for Conan's insult-heavy wit, and whenever they share screen time (whether it's cleaning Schlansky's office or taking away his espresso machine) magic happens.

Well, this time Conan took Schlansky, who is a confirmed coffee addict, to LA coffee king Intelligentsia.

What happens? Lots and lots of shenanigans. Check it out after the jump.
