Happy Friday viral video fans. As usual, we’ve got some great videos to get you ready for the weekend. This week’s picks include an in-flight safety dance, a homeless Muppet act, a “revealing” music video, Obama’s funny side, and one of the best treadmill FAIL videos to date. Enjoy!
Cebu Pacific Airlines
Earlier this week we wrote about a flight attendant safety dance on Cebo Pacific Airlines that got 5 million views in a mere 5 days. The video has continued to spread throughout the week and now has a whopping 8 million views! If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out below.
Homeless Man Under Pressure
Earlier this week we also covered the story of a “homeless man” who used YouTube as a platform to spread awareness about homelessness with two Kermit the Frog puppets singing ‘Under Pressure’. Turns out it was actually just a performance piece and the guy isn’t really homeless. But it spread awareness just the same, with over 689,000 views so far.
EL GUINCHO | Bombay (NSFW)
What do you get when you pair up a great song with tons of boobs, a bird lighting someone’s cigarette, a woman rubbing raw egg all over her face, a man in bed with chickens and a guy eating soup off a woman’s head? Great viral video potential! Musician El Guincho partnered up with cinematographer Marc Gomez Del Moral to make this video, which has been viewed on Vimeo over 700,000 times in only a couple of weeks.
‘You Know Who I Am’: Obama’s Presidential Seal Falls
It’s good to know that Presidents can still have a sense of humor. In this clip the Presidential Seal falls from the podium in the middle of Obama’s speech and he makes a Presidential funny. “That’s alright,” he says. “All of you know who I am.”
Treadmill Videos are incredibly popular on YouTube, whether people are dancing on them or falling off them. A new treadmill FAIL hit the YouTube streams a couple of days ago and already has nearly 500,000 views. Ouch. Looks like that hurt.
