Delta Airlines has come up maybe the best safety video I've seen ever. They feature twenty-five internet memes from start to finish including Keyboard Cat, Doge, screaming goats, and the Harlem Shake. Oh, and you actually learn things too.
In a series of KFC ads debuting on May 25, Saturday Night Live announcer and former cast member Darrell Hammond will "become" the Colonel himself; yes, the beloved Kentucky Fried Chicken founder, who appeared in ads for KFC in the '60s and '70s. Hammond told People Magazine, "It's an honor to bring to life such an iconic figure and it doesn't hurt that KFC is paying me in chicken (which, at the time sounded like a good idea, because I was very hungry that day)."
Josiah Duncan and his mom were eating at a Waffle House when they noticed a homeless man standing at the restaurant. When he found out he "didn't have a house," he begged his mother to buy the man dinner at Waffle House. His mom said the man only wanted to order a simple cheeseburger but she told him to get anything he wanted. And before the man could dig in, Josiah said he wanted to 'say the blessing with him', singing loud enough for the other 11 customers in the restaurant to hear.
He sang, 'God our Father, God our Father, we thank you, we thank you. For our many blessings, for our many blessings, Amen, Amen.' The mom said everyone, including the man, teared up.
Millions of tiny spiders recently fell from the sky in Australia, alarming residents whose properties were suddenly covered with not only SPIDERS, but also their webs. Here's the thing, it isn't as uncommon as you might think. Oh yea, this happens all the time. In fact, they call it "spider rain" or, in some circles, "angel hair," because of the silky, hairlike threads the spiders leave behind. The nightmare continues... they are known to "balloon" around the Outback but because of an abrupt change in the weather the spiders were carried away and then back down to earth.

17-year-old Ben Moser might be one of the best kids ever. He's a quarterback…he's handsome and has a girlfriend. So why would he be going to another girl's prom? Because he's AWESOME. He escorted former classmate Mary Lapkowisz to her prom. Mary isn't his girlfriend...she's a classmate with Downs Syndrome from the 4th grade that he had a special relationship with. He vowed when they were old enough, he wanted to take her to prom. And even though they went to different schools after the 6th grade, their paths crossed again when their teams met up on the football field. Mary helped her Math teacher dad as the equipment manager for the football team, and Ben was the quarterback for the opposing team. That's when he remembered that promise from the 4th grade to take Mary to prom. Promposal and all…
Autumn Allen is an American 13 yr-old singer who moved to Cambodia with her dad when she was 6 and hasn't seen her mom since.
She appeared on a special Mother's Day edition of the game show "Penh Chet Ort" (Like It Or Not) where the hosts tell her that they'll reunite her with her mom! Obviously she's very excited and emotional about this....
But when they bring out her "mom", it's actually a local cross-dressing comedian Chuop Rolin.
Entire clip here....
The show has since issued an apology...

The original creator of the "Ryan Gosling Won't Eat His Ceral" vines, Ryan McHenry, passed away from cancer at age 27. Ryan Gosling honored his vines with a vine of his own. If you're not familiar with the "Ryan Gosling Won't Eat His Cereal Vines", you can view them below.
My heart goes out to all of Ryan McHenry's family and friends. Feel very lucky to have been apart of his life in some small way.
