Okay, fellow internet cohorts… it is time to start wrapping up 2011, and what a year this has been! For my first post of “2011 in Review,” I am sharing my favorite video which came out… The Ultimate Dog Tease. Naturally since I am a huge dog-lover, having trained dogs since I was 12 years old, run agility, and work with dog rescue, it makes complete sense that this is my fav. However, this video is SO creative, that even the non-dog-lover in life has to admit that it’s damn funny and well-made. More…
Yes, I am on the slow boat from China here…. I completely missed this back in March/April 2010. If you haven’t seen it, well, it will make you cry either from laughing so hard, or from the realization that someone like this is an elected official – or both. He ate too many paint chips as a child. Too bad I missed this… would have had fun with creating some meme’s of this footage….
In this video footage of a House Armed Services Committee hearing, Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) is afraid that the U.S. Territory of Guam is going to “tip over and capsize” due to overpopulation. More…
Absolutely precious video of show a big squirrel refused to leave his little squirrel friend behind. With a little help of human friends, see how baby squirrel is able to conquer “The Wall.” More…
“Archie’s Final Project”, directed by David Lee Miller, is about a teenage boy (played by Disney’s Gabriel Sunday) who’s grown up fully immersed in digital culture. But despite his material and social advantages, he’s depressed, and decides to create one last video project, ending in his own suicide.
Across the country, teens who are sympathetic to the main character of the film, have experienced or have friends who have experienced suicidal thoughts, or have suffered from bullying, have been declaring, “I’m an Archie”.
Well, Archie is now joining the #occupy movement… Watch the video just uploaded.
This video is absolutely hilarious! This little kitten will just not give up it’s cigarette. More…
Bruce Huffman, 86, and his wife, Esther, 79, of the Hillside Retirement Community in McMinnville, recently purchased their first laptop computer –- an aqua colored beauty with a built-in webcam.
There is only one word to describe this… WOW!!!!
The Malaysian student, Ashraf Haziq, who was mugged and robbed on video, is now recovering in a hospital with a broken jaw. One of the robbers has possibly been identified, according to Channel 4 News out of the UK.
Out of this internet viral video is possibly another form of robbery. A site called “Something Nice for Ashraf” has been created asking for donations and provides a direct link to PayPal. No other information provided.
Smells fishy to me. According to a comment I received from a Malaysian citizen, the Malaysian government will fully compensate him for his full expenses. I clicked on the donation link simply to check it out, which does go into PayPal, but no where does it show who is receiving these donations. Could be anybody. And where is the proof that even one penny goes to Ashraf? I checked out the twitter name on the site, @jamiecowen, and there is little to no information there, either. An avatar with a “Save the Children” emblem in it… but anyone can create and upload that for their avatar. A few tweets… nothing more. An legitimate organization asking for donations for a cause always provides a LOT more information and proof than this donation site does.
If Malaysia is going to reimburse, then why is this person accepting donations for Ashraf?
Do not get me wrong… I feel horrible about what happened to Ashraf. But that does not automatically make this site legit only because I – or we – want it to be. This whole donation setup sounds like a scam to me. If so, this is just as bad as those people are who robbed him out of his rucksack as he stood their bleeding.
UPDATE: The original video of the talking dog who didn’t get the meat (but the cat did) has been added to the original post. Please click here to view it. His name is Clark Griswold, aka “Sir Talksalot”.
As many people do in this world… I LOVE DOGS! This has to be one of the best, funniest, and most creative videos of a dog I have seen. I have watched this dozens of times, and sent it to everyone I know. The creation/narration was so well done.
Enjoy! I am here LMAO!!!
YouTube Channel info:
UPDATE May 12, 2011: Video has been broadcast worldwide on TV on such shows as Good Morning America. Congratulations! You most certainly have a viral video worthy of this attention.
Here is the ORIGINAL video of the dog, Clark Griswold “Sir Talksalot”…
