Happy Friday, Social Times readers! Almost one year after our first weekly viral video roundup, we’ve decided to retire ‘This Week In Viral Videos’ and to replace it with a new, more upbeat Friday morning roundup. Friday Morning Laughs will be here for you on Friday mornings from now on, to put a smile on your face and help usher you into the weekend in good spirits. Rather than the most viral videos of the week, we’ll bring you a selection of five of the most funny and uplifting videos of the week. So prepare yourself for some serious LoLz.
CuteWinFail: Pizza Pup
Hungry for a midnight snack a dog enters the kitchen, opens the fridge and grabs a slice of pizza. But wait! You forgot to close the fridge, little guy!
Cats Enjoy Homemade Hot Dog
What kind of pet owner thinks to put his cat in a hotdog costume and then videotape the cat eating a hotdog? Apparently these little cats’ owners did and it made our day…even if those hotdogs don’t look very appetizing. And why is cat number two wearing a mini-sombrero?
Rebecca Black – Dmitri Finds Out Today Is Friday
It’s been nearly two weeks since Rebecca Black started trending on Twitter as a result of her music video ‘Friday’, which has been viewed over 46.9 million times to date. This week tons of covers and parodies have been making their way to YouTube, but this one has got to be my favorite. A Russian interview is dubbed with fake subtitles, making it look like the interviewee is totally excited that it’s Friday. He does a little dance to celebrate. Oh, and what a dance it is!
The Axis of Awesome perform on Red Nose Day
The Axis of Awesome perform a hilarious 4-chord song about how all the biggest pop songs ever written have just four chords. It’s a medley of all the most popular pop hits that have four chords. You’ll be surprised.
Tornado In Hempfield
Looks like someone is trying to be the next ‘Double Rainbow Guy’. This video hit YouTube on Wednesday and has 178,000 views so far. Like Paul Vasquez freaking out about a double rainbow, the kid in this video is freaking out about a tornado. The difference? In the double rainbow video there actually is a double rainbow. And I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who missed the twister in this video, though a tornado did touch down in Hempfield earlier this week, tearing up a local school.
BONUS: Don’t steal computers belonging to people who know how to use computers
Finally, we’re throwing in this bonus video, which isn’t so funny on its own but it has a great story behind it. To make a long story short, when a thief stole 18-year old entrepreneur and computer geek Mark Bao’s laptop, he hacked into his stolen computer remotely and found not only the thief’s Safari browsing information with his Facebook account, but also a couple of videos, including this video of the thief dancing. Read more in our post on the story.
