Video Of The Day: Safety Dance, Airplane Style

Oct 29th, 2013 at 6:00PM: Air travel can be tedious sometimes. Cramped seats, horrible passengers, security checkpoints... the list goes on. Virgin America has taken a step to lighten the mood once you're on board. Their new pre-flight safety video launched today on YouTube, and features a bit of singing, a bit of dancing, and far more fun than I've encountered when discussing seatbelts and oxygen masks in years past....

Video Of The Day: South America, via Land Rover

Oct 2nd, 2013 at 6:00PM: Today's video feature follows three filmmaker friends on a four-month road trip through South America in an old Land Rover. As they document their journey between Argentina, Chile, Bolivia and Southern Brazil, they capture the extreme weather and scenic views and present them in just over five minutes. We'd love to feature your photos and videos on Gadling, so please add them to our Flickr...

Video Of The Day: Rio de Janeiro, Timelapse Style

Sep 9th, 2013 at 6:30PM: The "timelapse trend" seems to be going strong. We've certainly featured several breathtaking mini-films in the past, from Europe to Disneyland and everywhere in between. And today, we have yet another awe-inspiring timelapse -- all the way from Rio de Janeiro. Remember, have HD on and full-screen viewing enabled for the best "sigh-inducing" viewing experience. We'd love to feature your...

Video Of The Day: London To Brighton In 60 Years

Sep 4th, 2013 at 6:00PM: In 1953, the BBC filmed a train trip from London to Brighton. They did it again in 1983, thirty years later. And now, they've filmed it a third time and spliced all three recordings together, side-by-side. It's fascinating to see what's changed in sixty years -- and moreso, what hasn't. We'd love to feature your photos and videos on Gadling, so please add them to our Flickr Pool (with...

Video Of The Day: Phantom Footage

Aug 20th, 2013 at 6:00PM: No, this video wasn't shot with a traditional helicopter and huge video cameras. In fact, neither was this one. Both sequences were filmed using a new accessory for the popular GoPro camera. It's called the DJI Phantom, and it's described as an "aerial drone helicopter" for your GoPro. The videos captured using this expensive toy are breathtaking -- I found myself having to move my head from one...

Video Of The Day: Disneyland, A Whirlwind Tour

Aug 14th, 2013 at 6:00PM: If someone says "Disneyland" or "Disney World," the words "quick trip" rarely come to mind as a follow-up. Yet two filmmakers have managed to provide a desktop Disneyland experience, showcasing Disneyland, Disney California Adventure and Downtown Disney in about a minute and a half. So now, sit back, relax and enjoy a quick journey to Anaheim. We'd love to feature your photos and videos on...

Video Of The Day: The $20,000 Timelapse Of Europe

Aug 13th, 2013 at 6:00PM: Kickstarter campaigns seem to be all the rage lately -- but it's more rare to see the finished product of whatever campaign passes through the news. Luke Shepard, an American student studying abroad at the American University of Paris, took three months to visit 36 cities in 21 countries. After shooting thousands of photographs, he strung them together in post-production to produce Nightvision....

Video Of The Day: Flughafen M√ľnchen, Lip Syncing

Aug 7th, 2013 at 6:00PM: For those not fluent in German, Flughafen München means Munich Airport. And how does that relate to lip-syncing and travel? Well, roughly 200 employees at the airport got together to film an OKgo-esque video, in which they lip-sync to "Come Away With Me" by The Donots. Apparently everyone from baggage handlers to the CEO was involved in some capacity. Would the pre-flight security...

Video Of The Day: Subway Panhandler, With A Twist

Aug 5th, 2013 at 6:00PM: Ride the subway system in many large cities, and you'll probably encounter a panhandler or two. Whether they're dancing, playing a guitar or flat-out begging, it can seem that everywhere you turn, someone is asking for your spare change. Riders on this Philadelphia train thought they were in for more of "the usual" -- until this panhandler opened his mouth. Check out the video and tell us,...

Video of the Day: Mirror City Timelapse

Jul 23rd, 2013 at 6:00PM: Artist Michael Shainblum claims he felt it was time to "combine Timelapse photography and the simplicity of a kaleidoscope" when he created this stunning video. Covering five major American cities, Shainblum's piece is a feast for the eyes. We'd love to feature your photos and videos on Gadling, so please add them to our Flickr Pool (with Creative Commons licensing!), tag @GadlingTravel on...

Video of the Day: Hidden Horizons

Jul 18th, 2013 at 6:00PM: Note: Beginning of video contains language that may be offensive to some viewers. When was the last time you thought, "I should just pack up and go somewhere"? Did you ever act on the thought? One Redditor actually did. Only going by "zonz1," they claim to be 26 and to have spent their life savings of roughly $20,000 to take a year off and travel the world. The list of stops is exhaustive...

Video Of The Day: New York's Gay Pride Parade In Under 2 Minutes

Video Of The Day: New York's Gay Pride Parade In Under 2 Minutes Jul 1st, 2013 at 6:00PM: After last week's historic U.S. Supreme Court decisions on same-sex marriage, major U.S. cities, including New York and San Francisco, celebrated their annual Gay Pride parades on Sunday with even more exuberance than usual. In New York, marchers walked danced through the muggy streets from 36th Street and Fifth Avenue down to Christopher and Greenwich Streets in the West Village, while mobs of...

Video Of The Day: Everybody Do The Wave

Jun 24th, 2013 at 5:00PM: We just made it through the summer solstice, and these next few hot months will have many of us running toward any available water sources to keep cool. It can be disappointing to arrive at our favorite watering hole and find it packed with people, but the theme park-goers in the video above from Tokyo Summerland don't seem to mind sharing. In fact, there seems to be more humans than water in...

Video Of The Day: This Is Shanghai

Jun 17th, 2013 at 5:00PM: Today's Video of the Day takes us on a techno-filled trip through Shanghai, courtesy of photographer Rob Whitworth. Although much of the short time-lapse film focuses on twinking lights and congested traffic, it also shows the city is much more than that by stopping to follow both a taxi driver and a woman selling flowers. The video also stops for a few seconds to give a glimpse into a couple...

Video Of The Day: The World's Most Contagious Prank

Jun 3rd, 2013 at 6:30PM: Today's Video of the Day takes us to several famous locations around the world, where prankster Roman Atwood demonstrates the power of the yawn. Outside of landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, Mount Rushmore and Stonehenge, Atwood walks by tourists while stretching and yawning, causing them to do the same. Let's just hope he took the time to actually enjoy all the places in the background of these...

Video Of The Day: Finding Fortaleza

May 6th, 2013 at 5:00PM: Rio de Janeiro-based production company MOOV maintains Fortaleza is "one of the most beautiful cities in Brazil," and in the video above we get to see it through their eyes - or, rather, their camera lenses. Located in Northeastern Brazil, Fortaleza is the state capital of Ceará, a city where nearly 2.3 million people reside. On the tourism front, the city is a major destination for...

Video Of The Day: 'Tune Up' With San Francisco's Pianobike

Apr 15th, 2013 at 6:00PM: Earlier this month I posted a video about a street performer who travels around France showing off his affectionate house cats. Well, the weird and wacky antics of buskers are far from limited to just France, so today we're traveling to San Francisco where a man has turned his tricycle into a roving piano. Gary Skaggs says his girlfriend gave him a lot of flack while he was building the...

Video Of The Day: Quiet Time In France

Apr 8th, 2013 at 6:00PM: The words "city" and "quiet" don't usually go hand in hand. Cities are, by their very nature, synonymous with hustle and bustle. But in the short film above, Andrew Julian challenges this notion. He offers a glimpse of Paris that shows the exact opposite of a metropolis – in fact, people rarely appear in the video, and when they do they're seen taking in their surroundings instead of...

Video Of The Day: French Street Performer Spreads Love Of Cats

Apr 1st, 2013 at 7:00PM: Street performers, or buskers, are found in every corner of the world, and practice of performing in public places for gratuities dates back to antiquity. Performers are constantly coming up with wild and wacky ways to impress passersby and entice them into donating their spare change. This short documentary by Paul Trillo follows one of those unique characters: a cat-loving street performer...

Video Of The Day: Brooklyn Stop-Motion Tour

Mar 27th, 2013 at 6:00PM: "Brooklyn Brewery Mash - A trip through BK in 3000 photos" from Paul Trillo on Vimeo. This stop-motion tour of Brooklyn is pretty cool. As a tribute to Brooklyn Brewery's MASH tour, Landon Van Soest and Paul Trillo put this video together. Using over 3,000 images, this video manages to capture much of the essence of Brooklyn – the people, food, drink, culture and sights from the...
