Canadian musician Michael Buble is on an apparent viral roll!

First, he just went viralviral in one day after debuting a special a cappella piece he recorded in the New York City subway. That video already has amassed over 1.2 million views, and continues to trend strong through the weekend. 

Now, he and Amy Poehler have just guest starred on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. They both had the lucky opportunity to also perform as apart of Jimmy’s ridiculous cover band that wears chicken costumes and only clucks for lyrics. 

Last time the Chickeneers covered the Lumineer’s hit single Hey Ho, and quickly collected over 1.5 million hits in a viralviral spree. 

This time, dubbed Cluck, Jimmy and his celebrity guest (and editor Chris Tartaro) cover Some Nights by Fun using only bwacks and clucks.

Late Night‘s official Youtube account couldn’t help commenting, “Some Nights will never be the same. CANNOT UNHEAR.”

Popular educational and inspirational TED talks recently posted this excerpt from Frans de Waal’s full speech, and now it is trending again.

While discussing moral behavior in animals, Frans and his team conducted an experiment where two monkeys would receive the same payment of a cucumber slice for completing a task. 

At first they are both satisfied with their cucumber. But when one of the monkeys is given an ‘expensive’ grape instead, his counterpart is disgusted with his measly cucumber and throws the piece in the face of the experiment technician

The implications of the experiment are quite obvious.

The Pet Collective specializes in making adorably precious pet and pop culture mash-up parodies. And the web loves it, be it their spoof of Macklemore’s hit single Thrift Shop, or their cover of The Fresh Prince theme song with a pet-twist

Now, the animal loving crew has returned to recreate the famous “These aren’t the droids you’re looking for” scene from the original Star Wars: A New Hope movie.

They even drop a little Super Troopers humor in for those nerdy enough to pick up on it.

NSFW Warning – language content

YouTubers Nikki & John, like so many other emerging prankster couples, are self proclaimed ‘crazy pranksters in love’ with over 480,000 dedicated fans. 

A few days ago, Nikki was vlogging about her new pet lizard when suddenly, the lizard got a little over-excited, and dropped a load on her lap.

She appropriately freaked out, screaming and shrieking, while her lover John can be heard laughing in the background.

Jaisen Paff loved the video, but must admit John’s cackling in the back was the definite icing on the cake, saying, “Johns laughing in the background LOL.”

Now, the video has collected over 100,000 hits

Texas Girly 1979 published this adorable Halloween-pet video a day after the spooky holiday, but it has just experienced a second surge of viewership online now, appearing on LaughingSquid, DListed, HuffPost, and BuzzFeed

The web has seen plenty of cats riding on Roombas before, but nothing like this. A cat, dressed as a Halloween shark, rides the robotic floor cleaner as a giddy baby duckling runs along. Finally, a witch dog appears just as the Roomba runs out of juice. 

As CthulhuSteev says, “The disappointment as the Roomba shuts off is palpable.”
