“Nirvana vs. Rick Astley” – Never Gonna Give Your Teen Spirit Up

Brilliant mashup by DJ Morgoth.

Riffs similar to that of Smells Like Teen Spirit can be heard in a lot of songs e.g. Louie Louie, More Than A Feeling, 3’s & 7’s. Catchy.

EDIT: The original video link is dead, this one works as of 2010-02-24.

The guy behind this exercise in abusing his own time also provides an alternate version comparing Obamas moves with Astley’s.

Creepy mystery game of abusive notes to crush

A Metafilter user describes notestomary.com, a brilliant game of mysterious, abusive notes from “Robert” to “Mary”:

“A few days ago a post appeared on the Something Awful forums noting a curious website called Notes to Mary. The notes are a series of threatening letters from a high schooler named Robert to his crush, Mary. The goons figured out pretty quickly that they had an ARG on their hands and went to work on solving the puzzle.” … “Robert began interacting with players, sending them strange messages and several series of numbers that appeared to be some sort of code.”

I’m not going to spoil the fun, read the full summary on Metafilter. Hint: the game ended with a popular video meme.
