5 second films logo

I came across this website this morning, and I have to say it is pretty damn funny. Well, if you like *that* sort of humour it is (and I certainly do). It looks like it has only just started out (October 2008) but there is a wealth of good shorts on there already. Reading through the about section of the website, I get the impression that it started off as an 'idea' amongst a group of friends. With that in mind I thought there may be a lot of in-jokes and shorts that I just 'would not get', but it doesn't seem to be the case. Most of them are accessible and immediately amusing: something of a byproduct of the films being just five seconds long!

One of the reasons I find this funny stems from something the prefabricators stumbled upon by accident many moons ago. On the TinyPic Video page, there are occasionally clips that are a few seconds or less long. It was here that the infamous bus good clip was found, amongst others. Will any other clip ever surpass its greatness? I doubt it.

Everyone's favourite anti-video game crusader just received a huge blow in the state of Florida, which is recommending that, in 30 days Jack Thompson be officially disbarred; IE: prevented from practising law and can never re-apply to do so again.
