  • Nosh also takes the video approach too, but really goes all-out in its efforts. This video has been watched over 58,000 times alone, in what will eventually be an award-winning video for what it's for. Depicted is two Special Forces soldiers 'hunting' down the missing pages -- at all costs.

  • Foradian built a 'hypercube' that acts as the zero in the '404' message. Built in HTML5, websites visitors can be blown away by the multi-dimensional cube that can be viewed from every angle possible. Certainly one of the most impressive Website error pages on the Internet.
