Mash-ups are a staple of Make Me Smile Monday, so imagine my glee (absolutely no reference to the high school musical TV show) when I spotted this: Carly Rae Jepsen  (good Canadian girl) with Gangnam Style

‘Op…op-op!’ – this made me smile…just before I decided it didn’t. Fair play to the guy xareoseven who made the mix. Two of the most viral music videos of the last 12 months mixed, mashed and mauled for your aural pleasure. Or not, you decide.

If you have *ever* in your life touched a single brick of Lego, watch this:

If you have ever read a MMSM before you’ll know how much this made me smile. If you haven’t, check out the back catalogue.

GPS-enabled shoes that get you home however drunk lost you are.

Sound waves that make liquid levitate
