  • Shorties: A Quick Chat with Russell Brand

    We sat down with Russell Brand to discuss his grand vision of revolution.

  • We Got 20 Strangers Who Aren't Models to Kiss Each Other

    When you get actual strangers, not models, to make out for the camera—when you're not filming a clothing commercial—it's not particularly beautiful or inspiring. It's just really awkward.

  • Things Get Weird at NYFW

    Maybe we just don't get fashion? But what if we did? That's pretty trippy if you ask us. So naturally, when we had all this B-roll eye candy left over from our fashion week coverage, we got stoned and made this video.

  • Old at Fashion Week

    This fashion week, we brought our good friend Dottie along. Dottie just turned 70, so she's not too cool to ask obviously important but regularly ignored questions like "Why are the models so thin?" And "Why does that snuggie cost more than a Fabergé egg?"

  • VICE Does New York Fashion Week

    Fashion Week is like a cosplay convention for the kids who fetishized copies of i-D instead of anime books about tentacle porn. During the runway presentations, we chatted it up with a bunch of the lovable weirdos who frequent the shows.

  • Angry French Bigots... On Acid!

    In early January, some bigoted French people gathered in Paris to celebrate their rage with a "Day of Anger." Some people were mad at the country's President. Some were mad about abortion. A whole bunch were mad about gays. And the Jews. Our friend Félix dropped a tab and talked…

  • The Showstopper

    Shawn Valentino is the self-styled international playboy who believes there is a ladykilling superhero inside of all of us.

  • MEGWIN Vs. VICE

    Japanese comedian MEGWIN is an online superstar in Japan. Recently, VICE Japan caught up with MEGWIN and treated him to a plate full of salamanders, fermented herring, and a pile of chili peppers from Mexico. We're proud to say he completed his challenge with a face full of snot,…

  • The Art of Taboo - Ren Hang

    Since being a radical artist in China is such a tricky prospect, you would think that photographer Ren Hang would lay off filling his portfolio with gaping buttholes and models pissing on each other. But he hasn't, which is a good thing.

  • Korean Poo Wine

    "Ttongsul" is a Korean rice wine mixed with the fermented turd of a human child. It has an alcoholic content of around 9 percent. A quick "Ttongsul" Google search will provide you with little more than internet-land hearsay and a flimsy Wikipedia page. Intrigued, we set out to di…

  • Korean Poo Wine - Trailer

    "Ttongsul" is a Korean rice wine mixed with the fermented turd of a human child and has an alcoholic content of around 9 percent. Little is known about the origins of what is surely one of the world's most bizarre and gag-inducing medicines. Intrigued, we set out to learn more ab…

  • Me and Alan

    The VICE London office just sent us this weird little video about five women professing their love for the same man. They love his face, his scent, and the way he walks, and would happily do anything to please him.

  • 'La Passione,' a Short Film by James Franco

    Here is the premiere of James Franco's new short film, La Passione. It's a decadent and beautifully shot trip that riffs on Theodor Dreyer’s The Passion of Joan of Arc, if it were shot on acid and starred the ATL Twins as demons.

  • The Art of Taboo - Nobuyuki Oura

    Artists have always used taboo and controversy to pose questions about society. In the first episode of "The Art of Taboo" we focus on Oura Nobuyuki, who explains the meaning behind his highly controversial portraits of Japan's Showa emperor, titled "Holding Perspective."

  • Life with Shisei - Horiyoshi III

    Our buddies at VICE Japan launched their YouTube channel last year, and the videos have been amazing. Here's an episode of their tattooing show about Horiyoshi III, one of Japan's most beloved and enigmatic tattoo artists. He specializes in full-body tattoo suits, often says myst…

  • Jailbert

    We had a feeling our prison correspondent would do well on video. Drugs remain a problem for Bert, and he consistently fails urine tests and is sent back to jail over and over again. In this two-part series, we examine Bert in his most vulnerable state as he tries to stay on the

  • Thatcher's in the Grave, They're Having a Rave

    On the evening of Margaret Thatcher's death, our VICE UK colleagues went down to Brixton to find out why so many people celebrated the death of an old lady.

  • 'Lil Bub & Friendz' - Trailer

    'Lil Bub & Friendz' follows the life and times of Bub and examines the internet-cat phenomenon, in general. Starring Lil Bub and Bub's owner, Mike Bridavsky, along with Grumpy Cat, Nyan Cat, Keyboard Cat, and meme-manager supreme Ben Lashes, the doc will premiere worldwide at the…

  • Monster Trucks... On Acid!

    When we heard that a Monster Jam event was happening about two hours outside of New York, we grabbed our buddy Dan, shoved two hits of acid down his throat, and headed up to Hartford, Connecticut, to find out what kind of damage a gigantic truck with 2,000 ponies under the hood c…

  • The Dachshund United Nations

    This is exactly what it sounds like: a bunch of wiener dogs hanging out on a stage meant to resemble the UN Human Rights Commission. We're pretty sure they're saying, "Woof woof, I'ma invade you if you don't lift that embargo!" Or whatever it is human UN delegates talk about all

  • All Around Losing - Dating Is Terrifying

    Harry becomes nervous and weird whenever he approaches anything that looks like a woman. To remedy this sad state of affairs, he went to a body language coach for some tips on how to appear more comfortable around females, and then threw himself into a speed-dating event, where h…

  • All Around Losing - How to Be a Man

    Harry normally evades conflict by running away or nervously laughing. He would like to become a man someday, so he endured a physically draining work out with a Krav Maga expert and went to a shotgun-training session at a gun range with an NRA-certified Israeli. Watch as Harry's

  • Nimrod at the Venice Film Festival - Part 1

    Master troll Nimrod Kamer heads to the Venice Film Festival and messes with Willem Dafoe, Pierce Brosnan, Harvey Weinstein, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Nimrod has pledged to spend the rest of his life living off PR gift bags and journalist treats, all while boasting about it.

  • All Around Losing - Stand-Up Comedy Is HARD

    Harry attempts to follow in the footsteps of Louis CK and other schmucks-turned-comedy-idols by trying to become a stand-up comic. He starts at the very, very bottom, subjecting himself to New York's brutal open-mic scene, and quickly discovers that 1) making people laugh is nigh…

  • We Sent Sam the Human Cat to Woofstock

    We dressed our intern up like a cat and sent him into a room full of dogs. The results were wildly cute and mildly uncomfortable at the same time..

  • All Around Losing - I'm in a Hip Electronica Band and I Don't Know Why

    In this episode of 'All Around Losing,' VICE associate editor Harry Cheadle gets sprayed with moth poop, swallows glowing balls, and dresses in chainmail—all in a misguided effort to become a rock star. His dreams of becoming a guitar god are doomed from the start, as he doesn’t…

  • Nimrod Trolls J.K. Rowling

    VICE's resident trolling mastermind Nimrod Kamer messes with J.K. Rowling at her own book signing.

  • All Around Losing - Trailer

    We made associate editor Harry Cheadle, the most awkward person we know, try new things, just to find out that he's terrible at all of them. New episodes of 'All Around Losing' start on Tuesday, November 20.

  • How Sean Malto Got Sponsored by Girl

    Sam Smyth, the team manager for the Girl and Chocolate skateboard teams, takes us to the sponsor me tape graveyard at Crailtap HQ. He also names some pro skaters who once sent in their tapes, and shows us Sean Malto's first submission. Sean then breaks down what it took to get on…

  • A Sex Trade Show... On Acid!

    It's really fun to give someone acid and then make them host a video, and it looks like our colleagues at VICE Germany have picked up on this. They recently gave their buddy Sascha a tab of LSD and sent him to Venus 2012, an erotic trade show in Berlin. It must have been gnarly t…
