Hello lovely readers! I hope you’re ready because we’ve got a collection of some really weird videos for you in this week’s edition of The Weekly Dose Of WTF. We’ve got a really long truck, Michael Bolton singing about Jack Sparrow, a weird iPhone app overview, tons of sandwiches and a video of a little girl playing with something she probably shouldn’t be playing with. So sit back, relax, and prepare to be WTF-ified!
Long Truck Is Long
Aptly named ‘Long Truck Is Long’, inspired by the Longcat Is Long feline meme, this video features a truck that is pulling somewhere around 10 trailers behind it. A car passes and shoots a video of the really, really long truck and it looks more like he’s passing a train. WTF is going on here? Is that even legal? I wonder what happens when he has to make a sharp turn?
Jack Sparrow (feat. Michael Bolton)
The latest hit from The Lonely Island hit YouTube a few days ago and it’s one of the strangest videos these guys have released to date. With over 4.3 million views so far the video features Michael Bolton. Bolton, excited after watching all the Pirates Of The Caribbean movies writes a big sexy hook for The Lonely Island’s latest hit. The problem? It’s got nothing to do with the song…it’s all about Captain Jack Sparrow. Hilarious.
AirRun is a new app that lets people outsource their day-to-day errands. For instance, I could seek someone to head out and pick up some groceries for me and then pay them $10 for the service. This is the AirRun Overview video. Aside from the fact that a lot of people are saying that this service would be perfect for dealing drugs, selling sex and other illegal services, the overview in itself is pretty WTF. Of all the things the girl could request, why latex gloves? And why does the guy shout “It’s that f**kin’ easy!” at the end?
Squirrel, Child, Greyhound…Unexpected – Caution: Disturbing!!
OK, before you watch the video below you should know that it’s a bit disturbing. It features a little girl playing with a dead squirrel. This video has gone viral this morning after being posted on sites like Reddit and Buzzfeed and has over 371,000 views so far. According to the description, the girl’s parents adopted a Greyhound and the dog killed the squirrel. The little girl picked it up and started playing with it. My question is, why did they let her pick it up!? And why oh why did they decide to post it on YouTube? WTF? SRSLY. Viewers seem to be in two camps–those that think this is hilarious and those that think it’s just downright wrong. What do you think?
Greatest Movie Sandwiches Montage
There have been tons of great movie montages to hit YouTube but this just may be one of the weirdest. It’s a montage of the greatest sandwiches in movies. Which sandwich would you want to eat most?
