Raise your hand if you’ve ever watched the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (hand raised high). Raise your hand if you’ve ever caught yourself doing the Carlton dance when you hear Tom Jones’ “It’s Not Unusual” song (hand raised high again).
So imagine my, and all the other Fresh Prince fans’, delight when I saw the below video of Alfonso Ribeiro (who played Carlton on the show) leading what is claimed to be the world’s largest simultaneous flash mob. Alfonso and his posse of flash mobbers did the same exact dance, on the same exact day, at the same exact time, in hundreds of cities across the United States and Canada.
Think about all the cool technology that exists today that people probably never expected to see in their lifetime. Now, think about how much more advanced technology will get as we progress further into the 21st century. Google is testing out a product that I absolutely see launching (and succeeding) in my lifetime – augmented reality glasses.
Oh how we love Video of the Week posts on the Identity blog. It gives us an excuse to sift through all the nonsensical and wacky videos on the Internet to find one worthy of donning the treasured Video of the Week title. Although some of us, [cough] Brandon Chesnutt [cough], spend way too many weekly hours outside of Video of the Week searches watching ridiculous YouTube videos.
Happy Friday! It’s dreary and slushy in Detroit, so we need a fun video for an afternoon pick-me-up.
This is an oldie, but a goodie. Little Kaylee has to blow out her birthday candle to make a wish, but she’s having a tough time. She certainly is determined, though! Maybe a little too determined, because I feared she would pass out before the video ended! Take a look, and enjoy a chuckle. Kids make for such good YouTube content, don’t they???
If you’ve checked out any of our videos of the week over the past year, it’s pretty obvious that when it comes to videos of animals, we are partial to ridiculously funny cat videos. Let’s be honest – how can you NOT love the many cat videos on YouTube? Cats do the craziest things.
I have to say that out of all the cat videos we’ve featured as our Video of the Week this year, “no, no, no cat” is my absolute favorite. I was laughing so hard that I was crying when I first watched this video (and it was right before I went into a meeting at work and then had to explain that why my eyes were all red and watery).
Let me start off with this disclaimer: I am not a Star Wars fan. I haven’t seen any of the movies, and I’m totally fine with that. So obviously, I am not the one who found this amusing video. Please thank sci-fi nerd Brandon Chesnutt for this discovery.
You definitely don’t have to be a Star Wars enthusiast to get a good laugh from this video. A dad recorded his son and daughter watching The Empire Strikes Back for the first time and reacting to Luke Skywalker finding out that Darth Vader is his father. The looks on the four-year-old son’s face are priceless during the revelation. He switches from astonishment, to confusion, to anger and finally to a blank stare of disbelief. He’ll fondly (or embarrassingly) look back on this when he’s older and thank his good old dad for capturing the moment on camera.
