The famous YouTuber TheFineBros have a series of Reaction Videos, where kids, teens or elders react to viral videos or other YouTubers. These shows have some highlights, but mostly they are pretty average. Their newest episode however is quite interesting, because the kids react to one of my most favorite YouTubers, Rhett & Link.
These two guys are on YouTube for more than 7 years by now and they have done some awesome stuff. You can find these sophisticated productions on their main channel, but to my mind even more interesting is their daily (!) show Good Mythical Morning. In these episodes they are talking about all kind of stuff and in more than 360 episodes you get to know a lot of things about these two.
In their newest Good Mythical Morning episode Rhett and Link react to the kids react to them. And the result is pretty sweet. As a follow up you should watch the corresponding improvised show after the show Good Mythical More (all posted on their third channel), in which they are talking about the reaction of their own families to the videos they produce.

The Gymkhana videos by rally driver Ken Block are incredible popular. Once a year he publishes a new video of him driving a Gymkhana parcours. The production of these videos are very sophisticated and the resulting views on YouTube are enormous.

Yesterday the newest piece was released, GYMKHANA SIX. This time with main sponsor Need For Speed instead of DC Shoes.
And as every year he pushes the limits of accuracy in driving and number of used GoPros.

This is insane. The Swiss watchmaker Pierre Jaquet-Droz build a machine in the form of a boy which is able to handwrite. He created this unbelievable automaton 240 years ago, consisting of almost 6000 custom made parts.
It’s mind-boggling to see the accuracy of the handwritten letters. This was achieved purely with mechanics and the art of clock-making.

Just a collection of neat animations based on famous paintings.
You can find the list of paintings in the YouTube description.
