7 AWESOME VIRAL VIDEOS YOU MUST CATCH UP WITH
We all have a thing for viral videos. Admit it. The thought of getting on the bandwagon of the next “Numa Numa,” “Gangnam Style,” and “Ice Bucket Challenge” is something that gets our jollies off rather well.
Maybe it’s the incredible (or so incredibly bad that it’s good) content, or maybe it’s the magnetic charm of being part of a social movement that gets to us. One way or another, we’re all entertained and just can’t get enough of them. Here are a few unforgettable viral videos we caught up with recently:
1. DISAPPEARING LIMBO PRANK
Now this is the kind of prank we all can get behind. No social experiment BS. No douchebaggery justified by “It’s just a prank, bro!” pleading.
In this public embarrassment/mindfuck prank, we see a couple of jesters convince random people on the street to take on their limbo challenge blindfolded.
2. THE WOLF OF SESAME STREET
I grew up on the street. Not the hood, I mean Sesame Street. That’s why I feel Cookie Monster would’ve taken over Wall Street like a pimp and nailed that Oscar win as proven in this role.
3. POODLE YOGA
Who wouldn’t love to bring their dog along for a workout, especially when you’re a hybrid dog? Confused? Don’t be. I have one word that explains it all – Japan. This human poodle exercise video is the kind of nightmare that made Van Gogh lose his marbles and cut off his ear.
4. QUANTUM PHYSICS IS FUN
Physics is fun. But quantum physics is on a whole another level. It’s hard to get people excited about the subject without confusing them or diluting it with some Deepak Chopra spiritual woo-woo.
In this case, we’ll let the visuals do the talking. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the Meissner effect.
5. MASSAGE CHAIR PRANK
Guess what Japan’s got except anime and octopus porn fetishes? A wicked sense of humor. In this cruel yet hilarious prank, we see a bunch of unsuspecting barely-clothed Japanese gentlemen being thoroughly embarrassed by getting tossed backwards out of the spa and rocketed down a ski slope.
6. TAKES OF BRAVE VOYEARISM - STARRING CONAN O'BRIEN & NICOLE SCHERZINGER
When you’re a 9/10 looker with a cleavage that would make God part the doors of heaven to sneak a peak, it’s unfair to blame the ordinary mortal sitting across you for doing the same.
Fortunately, Conan O’Brien sticks up for natural male instincts and turns it up a notch in hilarious fashion.
7. FIVE-O PRANK
Pranks in the hood have become the flavor of the season as more and more suburbanite YouTubers swarm troubled areas in town to get punched in the face or have a gun pointed at them to earn that sweet YouTube money.
This time however, we see them harass drug dealers and force them to perform a Roadrunner impression by confronting them as undercover cops.
