Don't be fooled by the first 20 seconds of this video-- it's is not just another cute toddler Youtube sensation. Prepare to be impressed and a little freaked out by some very slick video editing. The toddler noises and mugging for the camera get transformed into what could quite possibly be the next dance hall hit.

What happens when you mix the King of Pop with the King of Pop Art? The answer is Andy Warhol's 1984 portrait of Michael Jackson, which will hit the New York auction block later this month. The bidding will start at $840,000, but since both Jackson and Warhol are dead, the piece is expected to sell for much, much more. "We estimate this painting, created in 1984, will sell for $1 million to $10 million," said Ruth Vered, owner of the Vered Gallery, which will be selling the portrait.

They Might Be Giants dressed up as...penguins? snowmen? All I know is that these guys crack me up.
When Studio 360 asked the New York-based design firm Worldstudio to give the gay pride flag a 21st century makeover, we had to leave a lot of great conversations out of the final story. Here's a little bit more from the lively brainstorming session Worldstudio principle Mark Randall held with his team of designers, including Andrea Pellegrino, Nina Mettler, and Tom Koken.
