Please do not try this at home. Please, don't.

Like Transformers sequels and cut-off jean shorts (Knicks, can please bring back jorts, the dude is available), watermelon can be a pretty polarizing summer topic. As in, some people cannot wait to knife into the hulking fruit, while for others it inspires quite the gag reflex. And speaking of gag reflex, we were clicking around Facebook this weekend and this 13-minute watermelon video somehow appeared in our stream. Check it out.

Watch Cecchini present his finest work with the panache of a ringmaster, right here.

Video: David Chang's Fried Chicken With Caviar Recipe. This Is A Classic.

That's right: Fried chicken. Caviar. David Chang.

Sometimes, there’s a video that stays with you long after you watch it. That’s been the case for us with this clip featuring a rather, er, decadent recipe from Momofuku empire founder David Chang. It's definitely out there (to say the least), but it’s precisely this far-out, innovative thinking that’s defined Chang’s masterful career over the past decade. The animated clip, after the jump.

Cray! This Is How Fortune Cookies Are Made.

But really, how do they do it?
Jul 8, 2014 11:00 am

We’ve all experienced the wonder that is the fortune cookie. Sure, you’ve just polished off full plates of General Tso’s Chicken and orange beef, but are yet somehow still able to take down that two-pointed sweet crisp made from flour, sugar, vanilla and sesame seed oil that comes with the check. Have you ever wondered just how exactly fortune cookies are created, though? Read on.

Here's How James Bond Reacts To Funky Southeast Asian Wine

Some vintages should be judged by label alone

The fry-slingers got these poor folks SO BAD!
Jun 25, 2014 4:00 pm

A few weeks ago, ads went up around Vegas looking for performers to audition for a zombie-themed musical on the Vegas Strip called “Hunger in the Night.” Hordes of actors showed up in Downtown Vegas for their chance at stardom. The problem (and punchline) is, the show doesn't exist.

May 29, 2014 3:30 pm

We’ve all got a few favorite low-budget local commercials. You know, those insanely bad, somewhat comical ads for car dealerships and exterminators that feature some sort of cheesy jingle. The ones bordering on “so bad that it’s good.” Well, one small farm in Idaho is looking to change the perception that all these ads should be grouped together. The video, after the jump.
