Because of the unfortunate reality of the economics of the situation, these hard-working cacao farmers in Côte d’Ivoire had never been able to sample the final product for which they toil so hard. This video captures them tasting chocolate for the first time. The reactions, as you can imagine, are priceless! [watch the video here]
This video has been doing the rounds lately on YouTube and it’s not hard to see why: deceptively titled, Lucy the Beagle gets into a 325 degree oven to retrieve some chicken nuggets, it’s not quite as easy as that. You see, first she has to move some furniture around to enable the great nugget heist. Then she has to nab the nuggets and wrangle them to the safety of the floor.
WARNING: Should you be out on the town and find yourself talking to a charming girl called Zoe Jackson, Beware! She may just be the daughter of world famous actor Samuel L Jackson, in which case you better tread carefully. Covering countless roles in his acting career, Jackson never fails to command an air of […]
Meet Luna, a cow that thinks she just might be a horse. No thanks to her owner Regina Mayer who trained Luna to gallop across the countryside and jump over hurdles. All these efforts made because her parents wouldn’t allow her to own a horse on their dairy farm in Laufen, Germany.
The Internet is full of many strange and wonderful things, a breeding ground for the weird and whacky. This is perfectly summed up by a video that we recently stumbled across. Swedish car manufacturer Volvo has developed a new dynamic steering mechanism, the advert for which has gone viral. The steering works by replacing the driver’s arm-power with an electric motor, making even multi-tonne trucks a breeze to drive, but this is not what has drawn the attention of millions around the world.
Ok, so the song was a hit back in 1992 (off the seminal album, Mack Daddy) but this version of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s Baby Got Back STILL sounds fresh today as performed by the, wait for it, Seattle Symphony. Yes, that’s right, Sir Mix-A-Lot is mixing it up. A lot. Check out the front row dancers in this performance who are hamming it up and butt slapping their way through the entire song. Priceless.
Yup, this would take some Dutch courage alright. Check out this astounding footage taken deep in the jungles of the Phu Luang Wildlife Sanctuary in Thailand of a tourist calmly halting the angry charge of a rampant elephant with a gentle wave of his hand. Yup, his hand.
Watch what happened when 1,000 people simultaneously ate one of the hottest chili peppers in the world
Oh boy, this one will really set your mouth alight! Copenhagen’s Chili Klaus organised an event on June 5th at which 1,000 people ate the notorious Ghost Chili (bhut jolokia), at around 1,000,000 heat units on the Scoville scale, one of THE hottest chili peppers known to man.
Now, this has to hurt! Dancer Sara Mapelli wears what she calls a ‘bee-blouse’ made up of 12,000 honey bees for this exotic dance performance. She uses a special pheromone oil equivalent to the scent of 100 queen bees to attract her ‘bee-blouse’, which she wears for up to two hours at a time.
Guy gets stuck in an airport overnight all by himself: what does he do? Make a Celine Dion video, of course!
Stuck at the airport overnight? Most people’s idea of a nightmare. But Richard Dunn decided he could make the best of it, and put together a video. An amazing video. You see, Las Vegas McCarran International Airport shuts down overnight. There are no flights, and no people in the airport in the middle of the night. So what’s a guy to do?

For any number of reasons, ranging from a too large stomach (her words, not ours), and a long standing desire to be a nun (huh?!), these women have literally never seen their own vaginas. Never! So, of course, YouTube sensation DaveyWavey decided to, erm, introduce them to it. In the nicest possible way. The results were pretty fascinating (and amusing) to see, as this video below reveals.
Sometimes you see something that makes you question the natural order of the world, and your somewhat insignificant place in it. This remarkable security video footage uploaded by YouTuber Roger Triantafilo shows his young son being set upon by a vicious angry dog, who was in turn set upon by an even angrier, vicious cat.
Stop the clock: this video of a bunny furiously eating a raspberry officially beats out the baby shark and the cat with ducklings as THE cutest thing we’ve seen all year. Yes, we want one. Yes, we will feed it all the raspberries it can eat. Yes, that ‘lipstick’ looks divine. Sigh. Now won’t someone please rescue us from watching it all over again.
Watch what happens when Irish performers are given an unexpected audience to showcase their talents to
Stage fright. We’ve had it at some point in our lives, usually when we’ve had to get up in front of an audience and wow them on the spot. But would that stage fright be worse or lessened if you didn’t have all day, week, or month to worry about it beforehand? That’s the interesting question our friends at Heineken set out to address when they tested the courage of a handful of amateur Irish performers by inviting them to what they THOUGHT was an intimate casting to showcase their unique talent. Ha! No way.
Last month Heineken put on a mindblowing interactive theater show at New York’s The McKittrick Hotel. It was part play, part chooseyourownadventure mindwarp, with an eclectic cast of characters who encouraged the audience to become a part of the show.
