From the people who brought you Jackass The Movie, comes an interesting documentary about a family of Appalachian Tap Dancing Hicks.  Produced by Johnny Knoxville this entertaining piece drew my attention and has since been circulating through my group of friends with wild reactions.  This movie depicts the real life of some of the craziest, red necked, down home dirty white trash you have ever seen in your entire life…and they are PROUD of it.

My favorite part of the below video is at 1:16

“Our lifes just been a party and we just living like its a story, that we already dead but we still alive too, and we get to tell about it” –Jesco White

This video below is the official trailer for the movie, censored of course.

This goes along with the idea that old people using iPhones makes them less cool.  [iPhones Are Not Cool Anymore.] However since YouTube us a Google product somehow it had the opposite effect here.  This video of this elderly couple crack my up.  They are too funny.

Sometimes the best kind of viral video is one that’s a complete accident. That’s what happened when an elderly Oregon couple tried to take a picture of themselves using their new laptop’s webcam. Instead, however, they unwittingly recorded a hilarious video of themselves (scroll down to see the whole video). In it, 86-year old Bruce Huffman burps, makes faces, and shamelessly flirts with his 79-year-old wife Esther who ignores him while she tries to figure out how to take a photo. Esther was especially perplexed when she saw an error message pop up that read, “‘warning you must stop recording before trying to close.'” Esther went on to say, “Gee but I don’t know what I’m recording. Shucks.” For one fleeting moment, Bruce almost figured out what was going on when he sais, “maybe it’s recording us?” Unfortunately instead of exploring that possibility they moved on to another topic: their wrinkles. Apparently, their granddaughter had tried to teach the charming couple how to use the webcam. When the granddaughter was on the new computer a few days later, she found the funny video and posted it to YouTube. The Huffmans are now Internet sensations. Not only has their video been viewed more than 2 million times, but they’ve appeared on several television news shows. They aren’t the first couple to accidentally record themselves. Earlier this year, a video of elderly couple Rita and Frank doing the exact same thing got nearly 1.5 million views on YouTube. I can’t decide which video’s better! What do you think? Tell me and Twitter @AdrianaTweeting.

Some students at the University of Kentucky with collaboration from the Christian Student Fellowship organized the largest water balloon fight to my knowledge in recorded history. The event used 175,141 water balloons and involved 8,957 people.  They also put this cool little video together to show the setup and the fight in slow motion. I recommend watching the fight in 720 HD.

This reminds me of another crazy college film i saw a few years back from the University of Dayton where they organize this run to get good hotels for a school trip to Daytona Beach Florida.

So I have always been a fan of the trend of mashing different types of music together to make fun beats. below are a few of my favorite mashups.

Pimps and Jokers by TapeMaster Inc.

Tom Petty vs 50Cent

Baby Be Loved by TapeMasters Inc.

Fabulous vs Maroon 5

Nirvana vs Europe by Wax Audio

Staying Alive In The Wall By Wax Audio

The BeeGees vs Pink Floyd

So after an interesting post by a friend (HERE) I decided to share some of my favorite people on YouTube.

This is the video from my friends post.  Yes there is a beat boxing cellist (1:33) which is one of the more unique talents I have ever seen.  Not to mention the song is great. If you go to watch any more of their videos leave my blog in the comments to let them know where you came form to watch it.


 is one of my favorite success stories from YouTube.  I started following her when she only had about 100 people listening to her music. She now tours the world singing and doing what she loves.  she is by far the best dorm room musician I have seen on YouTube.  By dorm room musician i mean when she started she was just sitting in front of her computer in her dorm room recording songs on her laptop.  She covers tons of fun songs as well as having many great originals.  All of the singing is her own she even does the harmonizing with herself.  For those of you who would love to play music for a living she is a great reference as to how to get started and how to truly do what you love.

Matthew Andrae, AKA , I found randomly on YouTube during a ukulele tangent of browsing.  When i first watch the video it had

only been seen about 1500 times.  It now has many more views than that. Below is an excerpt from her YouTube profile and the song.

“Imagine waking up to 15,000 new emails with 1000 new ones coming in every hour. The emails are from people you don’t know who want to congratulate you, share their most personal emotions about your music and meet you in person. Among these thousands of emails are others who want to sign you to their record label, manage your career, schedule interviews, and book your act. The first thing you might think is that you are still dreaming. “I remember smiling in disbelief” says Matthew Andrae, “Nobody gets that many emails except maybe Russell Crowe”. Since Andrae posted a video on You Tube last December of himself singing “Sweet Celine” and accompanying himself on the Guitalele (a cross between a classical guitar and a tenor ukulele), the song has racked up 603,102 views and touched many listeners.”

I was one of those people who emailed him.


  does not get nearly the viewership of the above three channels and the videos posted are generally random in content and theme, but he has a special ability to pull his camera out at just the right time to catch some special moments on film.  I have used his videos in the past on my blog for concert reviews, the video below was taken at a house party he had. The band is The Werks. (find there music for free HERE)

  This channel posts videos from one of the best college traditions I know of anywhere in the country. Every winter The University of Dayton and its students have a Christmas light competition, for an event called Christmas On Campus where they have under privileged kids from the city near by come out to campus to celebrate Christmas and get presents from college kids. It is a great charitable event but the reason it is so cool is how over board they take the Christmas light competition.

If you haven’t seen this video yet you must have been living in the internet dark ages but these guys play their only hit song on a subway in NYC all on iPhones and filmed on iPhones. You may be thinking that is lame, but it actually sounds great.

  comes from the guys who brought you superbad and funny or die. Basically they get friends of theirs super drunk and then asked them to explain historically significant events. If you are a history buff this will be a big laugh for you.
