Thursday Top 5

“Walk Hard,” The Music Video
I watched Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story last week and thought it was hilarious. Most of all, I was impressed by the amazing songs, plus the fact that John C. Reilly actually sung them all! The title track is an incredibly catchy Johnny Cash-esque tune that’s been going through my head ever since.

Я очень рад, ведь я, наконец, возвращаюсь домой
This one’s definitely for Olya. So she can translate the title above. And while the comments on YouTube usually just serve to prove the decline of civilization, I found these three funny: “Anybody know where I can get the lyrics?”, “From the great Russian songwriters strike...”, and “I want [to] punch this guy in the face so bad!” [via Jenny]

Stunningly good PSA
An original approach to road safety advertising from the Sussex Safer Roads Partnership.

Bill Scott
Former Yahoo Bill Scott (he's now with Netflix) gave this talk at CNET about a year ago, but I was glad to watch this video again for a refresh. If you're a web developer or user experience designer, it’s chock-full o’ really good things for for you to know. His personal website is very, very useful too, and if you're not already aware of and using the YUI Interface Library, it's a must-see.
