When some rules just can’t be broken, take some inspiration from this dog who desperately tries to fetch his frisbee from the swimming pool without having to jump in. While the dog probably knows it would be easier to jump in and save his toy from a watery grave, his small victory probably will keep him from sleeping outside that night.
Two men voluntarily put themselves through a labor pain simulation for Mother’s Day. Through electrode simulation, the guys were able to get a sense of what it was like to have labor contractions. Their wives looked on as they grunted in pain and deservingly high-fiving each other because yeah, this shit is pretty funny.
This little girl has wheelies on lock as she spins around in her battery-powered car. And round, and round, and round, and round she goes…
In another edition of “Old People Who Don’t Get Technology,” American politician New Gingrich wants to rename cell phones because they do more than make calls these days. Sorry to break it to you Newt, but we already have a name for them “hand-held computers.” We call them smart phones. No, you can stop searching on Yahoo! It’s not a new term. It’s been around for a while.
I’m puzzled too that no one in Gingrich’s camp broke the news to him earlier or at least tried to explain to him why making a YouTube video to try to explain the necessity of creating a new name for the cell phone was a bad idea. Then again, this is the guy who promised to put a colony on the moon by 2020 during his 2012 Republican party presidential candidacy run.
Dang, this pup has better moves than me!
Dancing along to Eminem’s “Shake That”, this dog takes booty shaking to another level. In fact, I think he’s SO GOOD that he could even compete with Beyonce.
Shake on, dawgy dog!
Sometimes, it doesn’t take much to create a heartwarming moment. Seeing a kitten with a can over its head, this cheerful man embraces the animal and helps the animal out of its predicament.
If you love cat videos, this is an ABSOLUTE MUST WATCH.
This is what happens when you unwittingly smash two gallons of milk on the ground.
Why would you do that? You’ve injured yourself AND made a mess. I feel bad for the employees at the store.
Showing everyone just how adorable he is (like he really needed to prove that to anyone…), Darren Criss sings all of our of favourite 90′s themes.
This is almost flawless, except for the fact that he can’t remember the theme for The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
How could you Darren?! Everyone knows that one.
The way to challenge somebody who thinks sexuality is a choice is by turning the tables.
When Travis Nuckolls and Chris Baker asked a group of straight people on whether being gay is a choice, the two switched things over by asking their subjects when they chose to be straight.
This is absolutely perfect and the responses here are surprisingly lovely and very reasonable. Hopefully this video can make others understand sexuality a bit more.
Somebody give this couple free gas FOR LIFE, because they definitely know how to have fun. With a free tank of gas on the line, news anchor Jack Rafferty gets this musical pair to belt out Bon Jovi and the Eurythmics.
This is what I call true bliss and happiness. These two also seem to be great fun during karaoke sessions.
Sometimes people forget that celebrities have feelings like the rest of us. So much so, that people will even go out of their way to tweet mean things towards them.
Luckily enough, many celebrities are able to take insults with a grain of salt. In fact, they’ll even play along like the good sports they are!
My personal fave here is Ray Romano. Don’t ever insult a comedian, because he/she will DEFINITELY have something smart to say back.
While we can all admit to ourselves that a haircut can make or break our appearance, at the end of the day, hair is basically just a bunch of dead cells growing on our head.
So why not cease the moment by getting your hair did by Zach Galifianakis?! While he may not be a professional, it’s not every day that someone famous gets to cut your hair…right?!
A lucky woman (or not so lucky..?!) got to get the chance to have her hair played with by the comic actor. But the results were unfavourable.
She’s clearly upset about her hair, but it could look great evened out.
Just chill girl, because it’s not every day you get your hair cut by a celeb!
(P.S: the hair cutting starts about 8 minutes into the video.)
You know your child has officially entered into beast mode when he can get through anything.
Testing out the ever-so-ticklish scalp massager (well, for me it’s bothersome…), this child is able to recover quickly after banging his head on the table.
I swear, kids are built like machines. It’s too bad we tend to get more sensitive as we age
When it’s the middle of winter, I like to throw all of my fresh-out-of-the-dryer clothes onto my bed and cocoon myself in its warmth. This cat found the best way to keep warm: stick your head on popcorn. If only Tina Fey saw this video before 30 Rock ended. I’m sure Liz Lemon would’ve dunked her head in a warm bowl of popcorn too.
Canadian politics is hard to decipher. At first glance, it looks like Canadians are just too nice with each other and thus, it’s hardly the political theatre that is American politics. If you’ve ever had to sit through any question period session, there’s a lot of yelling (sometimes in french) when the first topic is brought up, then it gets really quiet.
Sometimes, though, our politicians deliver the goods. Such was the case when the seemingly impending zombie apocalypse was brought up during one session. Now, they’re busting out the Arrested Development references as they wonder where the Conservative government has stashed our cash. (IS IT IN THE BANANA STAND? IS IT, PRIME MINISTER STEPHEN HARPER?)
So, are we supposed to think politics is hip and cool now? Who knows, but I will always appreciate an Arrested Development joke.
Avertisers Saatchi and Saatchi Sydney teamed up with post-production company Heckler to create this short video of kids eating foods for the first time for TEDx Sydney. While kids doing anything is adorable, this video is as cute as can be as their reactions to eating gross things like Vegemite and anchovies are played back in slow motion. You can see how the children react with their whole bodies. While I did feel a little bad that they had to endure some pretty gross stuff, just wait until the very end when all you want to do is yell “SUCCESS!” with one happy baby.
Like we mentioned yesterday, Vine is a cesspool for mundane mini-videos where once in a while, something magical happens. Enter Ryan McHenry who has used Vine’s power to bring us what the public really wants when we’re looking to waste time: videos of the Ryan Gosling refusing to eat his cereal. Gosling is like the 32-year-old version of that kid you hated to baby-sit because he wouldn’t eat his food. All you wanted to do was force-feed it to him because dammit, this disgusting purée of peas has to go somewhere and that somewhere better not be on my shirt or the garbage. Hey, if anyone is going to refuse a meal, it might as well be Ryan Gosling who’s beautiful mug looks like it was carved by one of the great artists.

Just just going to do this now: I’m sorry to all the Trekkers who have somehow found themselves here. Asides from the J.J. Abrams reboot, I have never seen an episode of Star Trek so I apologize if I get anything wrong in this post but this super cut of of Captain William Thomas Riker sitting down is too good to pass up.
Watching this completely out of context is still hilarious because it looks like Riker is pulling an Alpha male type move on everyone around him. It’s as if his epic beard wasn’t enough and he’s compelled to show off just how tall and manly he truly is as he saddles the chair rather than simply walk around to sit. He can even do it backwards! It’s a peacocking move that screams, “Picard, if you go down, don’t fret. I can safely guide this ship and its crew to safety.” It also quite telling of Riker’s sexual prowess. Damn. What a man.
While being all manly in his wood working workshop, Parks and Recreation‘s Nick Offerman read tweets by some of our favourite female celebrities for Conan last night. He took tweets from the likes Amanda Bynes, Miley Cyrus, Carly Rae Jepsen and Katy Perry. While some people might find the contrast between Offerman’s majestic beardedness and the mundane tweets jarring, it actually feels really natural too me. He’s all man of the woods and such while reading Carly Rae Jepsen’s tweet where she compares herself to Snow White. See? It all totally makes sense.
I take everything bad I said about Vine back. It’s not just a boring social media tool that celebrities can use to appear “hip,” “cool” or “normal.” It’s somehow become this cesspool of weird videos. And because of the format, it doesn’t make vertical video so apparent or annoying. While there are some horrendously boring videos (I still don’t care about what you ate this morning) to dig through, it’s not hard to find the gold mine. Like, for example, all I had to do was search the hashtag #IbelieveIcanfly and this was the weird I can find.
From tying toys onto fans while playing the iconic R. Kelly song in the background to “editing” the video so it looks like you’re forever in a video game, this is the kind of 6 second hilarity the video-based social media app has to offer.
