Accidents happen

Fashion tips are hot items on YouTube, but when a young lady tried to demonstrate how she curls her hair, well, it went terribly wrong.    At least she got a very viral video out of it.

 

In this next video, a 17-year-old falls 45 feet from a ski lift!   According to reports, the boy was trying to throw a snowball at some friends in front of him and lost his balance.   It happened on a mountain in Santa Fe, New Mexico.    He suffered a concussion, a skull fracture, a collapsed lung and a lacerated liver.

 

Here's another accident - a 19-car pile-up in China caught on camera.   Watch the lower left-hand corner.

 

A couple of fun videos to get you into the weekend... First, Qualcomm came up with interesting marketing campaign called "Best Bus Stop Ever."   I like it!

 

And finally, gorillas go bananas in the leaves at the Atlanta Zoo!

And from Russia, I suppose you could call this "crow boarding."

Harlem Shake Washing Machine and a Backflipping Car

The Harlem Shake may be wearing thin, but this video takes it to a whole new level – and with nearly 3 million views, it’s the most shared video on YouTube today.

 

 

This car doesn’t look like it’s moving fast enough to do a backflip, but check it out.  This is French rally driver Guerlain Chicherit car backflipping in Tignes, France.

 

 

Is this the world’s cutest frog?   It’s a desert rain frog and makes really strange noises.

More Russian meteorite videos

 

We're finding a more and more videos of the Russian meteorite on YouTube.   Here are a few of the new ones:

The first one is after the meteorite and you can hear the glass shattering.

 

Another view from the street after the meteorite flew overhead, and some dramatic moments as the sonic boom is heard.

 

 

 

Here's another view of the meteorite streaking across the sky.

 

This next one is a compilation of static cameras in which you see office workers thrown by the sonic boom.

 

And this video was shot in a classroom as the sonic boom shook the school and shattered glass.

 

This one was shot outdoors and you can hear the booms!

 

This one is described as showing a “zinc plant destroyed by a meteorite."

 

The next two videos are from an uploader in the city of Emanzhelinsk, which is south of Chelyabinsk, where the meteorite struck.

 

 

Blast in the sky over Chelyabinsk.

 

 

 

Russian Meteor, Crash Landing and Surfing with Dolphins

It's like something out of a movie, and probably no surprise that video of the Russian meteor has gone viral.     This one of the meteor streaking across the sky was captured by a dashcam.   What got me about this video is no one in the vehicle reacts.

 

Here's another incredible video captured by a passenger in a small plane that made a crash landing.   The actual landing happens around 1:30 into the video.

 

From the incredible to the odd….  a most unusual Valentine's message… almost creepy… viewed more than 2.6 million times.

 

And finally, surfing with the dolphins!

Harlem Shake and Avalanche Racing

"Harlem Shake" is a dance move from the 1980s, but it's exploded on YouTube. It's gone viral thanks to a silly video posted on February 2 by a vlogger named "Filthy Frank." Since then, more than 12,000 "Harlem Shake" spinoff videos have been posted since the start of the month and they'd already been watched upwards of 44 million times. As you can see in the chart below, over 4,000 of these videos are being uploaded per day and that number is still likely on the rise.

The original:
