The same folks who brought you front-page RickRolls and TEXTp have a new trick up their sleeve. Going with the idea of "Our 100 Year Anniversary", the folks at YouTube bring you a new way of watching online videos: party like it's 1911!

Most films can be given this treatment: including sepia-ed out colors, film-scratches, uneven lighting, and even caption cards. Oh, and don't forget that piano player working his heart out to bring you the sound you deserve. I wonder who's playing? Keyboard Cat?

Check out the little extras too: the top viral videos of 1911, a new (or old) way to upload your video, or the Retro ads you might find.

It's great fun, all around. Enjoy it today, because unfortunately these things rarely last.
