3 videos to watch this weekend - 28 February

YouTube is the World's second most popular search engine and celebrated its 10th birthday on Valentine's day. There are over 1 billion users who now upload 300 hours a minute. This 4 minute video squashes 198 clips into the maximum attention span of anyone born after 1991.

In case those flashed passed too quickly here is something for those with the concentration powers to last 16 minutes.

Keeping with a speed theme, the music video below might be one of the shortest film shoots for its genre. The entire sequence was shot in 5 seconds from a car traveling at 80km/h. Played back at normal speed the flurry of activity fits well into the song.
