This baby elephant found himself wandering down a road populated by flying birds and decided to get in on the action. It looks like he’s having a good time, but it could just as easily be a frustrated attempt at flight or a cute effort to get away.

In an attempt to lure the Foo Fighters to Cesena, Italy, 1,000 musicians came together to play a huge version of “Learn to Fly”, which was followed by an impassioned plea from the effort’s organizer. Will it pay off? There doesn’t seem to be any word yet, but the video did make it to the front page of the band’s website.

Check it out after the jump.

brawny bicyclist

The person that was inconsiderate enough to park in the bike lane probably wasn’t expecting that a burly bicyclist would come by and physically move the car out of the way – but that’s what happened as spectators cheered. After watching the video after the jump, you’ll surely agree that it was a good thing the driver wasn’t around. This dude would probably have eaten him.

During a visit to Britain’s Colchester Zoo, a woman put her baby bump next to the glass enclosure of an orangutan, and after a brief moment of staring at it, the animal proceeded to kiss the glass. Apparently this is being chalked up to the orangutan’s parental instincts, a theory which is supported by cameraman Jay Clarke who tried the same thing afterward but was completely ignored.

Watch the moment of tenderness after the jump.

It isn’t everyday we get to see air under the tires of a semi truck, but for a brief instant, crowds were treated to the sights of stunt driver Gregg Godfrey breaking the record for a semi truck jump by covering a whopping 160 feet. As impressive as the jump itself is, you have to be equally impressed by the quality of this thing’s shocks.

Check it out after the jump.

If a human was to be seen snoring in a pool with his/her genitals shamelessly exposed for all to see, it would surely mean instant handcuffs, mugshots and court dates. However, if you happen to be a pug, the result is a viral video that is labeled “adorable” and earns him the title “The King of Summer”.

While flying through the worst July storm to hit Amsterdam in 100 years, the crew of a KLM 777 was forced to turn their plane into the equivalent of the most terrifying amusement park ride in history while performing a crosswind landing at Schiphol airport.

If you’re going flying anytime soon, it’s probably best to avoid the clip after the jump.

Trude the baby owl and its massive eyeballs were recently captured bobbing around a bathroom sink and enjoying a faucet shower.

Even though there’s no effort to provide any sort of performance, the videos after the jump are still strangely entertaining and relaxing.
