Dogs demolishing a chair

This video comes with no explanation (and no sound). The action really starts around 2 minutes in, and I fast forwarded through much of it. But I'm curious to know, why exactly do these dogs so desperately want to destroy that chair?

Cameras In Rentals Hertz Business

image
Hertz has installed cameras that are able to view the interior of the vehicle in a portion of its fleet and many customers are upset. The company claims the cameras have never been used but they put out a commercial showing how handy the device could be in case of an accident. A representative for the company claims that was a 'mock up'. A mock up? In advertising, really? That kind of behavior; advertising a feature that is not available OR stating the cameras had never been used when they had been, because only one of those statements can be true, makes one wonder if camera use would be disclosed in the future. The book 1984 wasn't even close, there won't be just one big brother watching.

I have no explanation for this micro-video. It might be the work of this fellow. But whatever the source, whatever the intention, it sure is weird.

Here is something akin to fireworks for the 4th.

"KOU KOU is a visual work based on an abstract animation synchronized with a song comprising the unique syllabic sounds of the Japanese language, without actually using any full words."
