Congrats, everyone — you made it to the weekend! Your reward? We've compiled the best YouTube clips we've seen this week to give you fun stuff to watch before Monday morning.
From wild sci-fi new trailers to a hilarious clip of Shaq declaring war on an old nemesis, we've got something for everyone. If you're a music junkie, we've got videos from blink-182 and The National. Here are the best YouTube videos you missed this week.
Rumored as Windows Neon, the Fluent Design System is Microsoft's roadmap to a more elegant operating system. Between this and the Surface Studio, I have to give the company credit for making its products look elegant and refined. It's even got me (a long-time Mac user) considering a Windows machine as my next computer.
I don't think there is a classic sci-fi film that I'm more protective of than Ridley Scott's Blade Runner. So imagine my surprise when the new trailer for Blade Runner 2049 actually got me to buy into the sequel. 2049 stars Ryan Gosling, who doesn't seem out of place in this universe, as Officer K, a blade runner whose investigation requires him to track down the long-missing Rick Deckard.
I can't believe I'm typing this either, but, holy crap this new blink-182 song is fun. It successfully merges the youthful exuberance of the band's older tracks with a slash of maturity from its last album.
This clip announcing Shaq's involvement for NBA 2K18 seems boring at first, but the laughs kick in with the appearance of one of his oldest foes. Let's hope that this is just the start of a series of ads renewing their rivalry.
What happens if you take mutant powers and place them in a FOX drama that looks like a younger version of The OC? This teaser trailer for the Bryan Singer-led The Gifted. If you like this, check YouTube for more on May 15 when the full version launches.
The National, the pride of both Ohio and Brooklyn, is back with a new song that gives fans a lot to process. Not only do the pop-ish backing vocals and lead guitar present a significant departure from the band's signature sound, its mysterious video suggests that the band's dealing with an obsession regarding America's surveillance habits.
