    Epic Hot Dog Eating Contest: Kobayashi vs Tiny Hamster (Video)

    I should think the title of this video, “Kobayashi vs Tiny Hamster,” is pretty much self-explanatory. But just in case you’re a little dense, let me spell it out for you. Kobayashi of course is Takero Kobayashi, the Japanese competitive eater who used to win the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest every year until he […]

  • Hot Chick + GoPro Camera + Yoga Pants + Motorcycle = Must-See Video

    Hot Chick + GoPro Camera + Yoga Pants + Motorcycle = Must-See Video

    GoPro cameras have provided us with some pretty amazing extreme sports footage over the years. And I’m not just talking about people skydiving or bungee jumping either. We’ve seen footage of a guy water skiing through the streets of New York after Hurricane Irene, and more recently we’ve seen footage shot by a GoPro cam […]

    Just an Old Lady with Crazy Freestyle Soccer Skills. No Big Deal. (Video)

    Down in Australia there’s a pretty cool non-profit organization called Football United that’s trying to use people’s love of “the beautiful game”—i.e., soccer—to raise money for charities benefitting refugees and underprivileged kids.

    Viral Vine: Watch a Gymnast Go Flying Off a Springboard

    When Twitter first released Vine, their video-sharing platform, I was a little confused. Instagram? That kind of made sense. YouTube? That makes all kinds of sense. But what was the point, I wondered, of a video sharing site that only lets you make six-second, looping videos? Then it dawned on me: Vine videos are like […]

    Dude Catches a Bird With His Hand (Video)

    Real or fake? That is the first question that comes to mind while watching this video of some dude catching a bird with his bare hands.  Either way, I’m impressed. If it’s real, my reason for being impressed is quite obvious, as catching (not swatting, Manu) a bird with one’s bare hand is something I […]

    This Autotuned Manti Te’o Video is a Classic

    Look, I know you’re sick of hearing about Manti Te’o and the dead girlfriend hoax. But trust me, this is worth it. Remember the “Bed Intruder Song,” in which the “hide yo kids, hide yo wife” guy Antoine Dobson got autotuned? Or the “Double Rainbow Song,” in which that funny hippy’s reaction to a double […]

    The Latest Video From ‘Dude Perfect’ Features Johnny Manziel (Video)

    Back in 2009, some Texas A&M seniors were hanging out in their backyard when they decided to record a video of their crazy trick basketball shots. They edited that footage, named themselves “Dude Perfect,” and uploaded it to YouTube. After that video went viral and got them on ABC’s Good Morning America, they decided it […]
