The Faces Behind The Voices (via Great Big Story)

This video from Great Big Story compiles four segments featuring voice actors Charles Martinet, Tara Strong, Redd Pepper, and Jim Cummings. You may not know the names, but you’ll recognise the voices if you’ve played Mario, watched Raven in Teen Titans, listened to a movie trailer, or seen a screen version of Winnie the Pooh. I’ve featured the Tara Strong section of this before, but it’s all very entertaining.

Australian (Extreme) Dinghy Racing

Dinghy is such a wonderful word.
This three-minute video from Great Big Story about Dinghy Racing in (South) Australia had me at “In 1981, two dinghy pilots in Australia made a wager to determine which one of them could ride their boat to the pub the fastest. Thus, extreme dinghy racing was born.”
Of course it had to be about getting to the pub fastest.
It’s Australia.
