What It’s Like To Be A Real Life Mermaid

Countless young girls dream of being a mermaid when they grow up. Sadly, that’s impossible. But three young women have actually realized their dreams of becoming mermaids. Erin, Lauren, and Katie are real life mermaids who work at the Florida Aquarium. OK, they’re not real mermaids, but they sure are as close as it gets. BuzzFeed interviewed the three to see what it’s like to wake up and be a mermaid for work instead of going to the office everyday. Best job ever!

Soccer Flopping In Real Life

Flopping is a technique popular in basketball and soccer when a player will exaggerate being hit by his opponent in hopes that the refs will call a foul in his favor. But what if people pulled off flops in real life, such as in the office or at the grocery store? That’s exactly what Fourgrounds Film imagines in this new viral video in honor of the World Cup that has already garnered over one million hits!

Lag In Real Life Experiment

There’s nothing more annoying than a lagging Internet connection, especially when you are trying to watch a streaming movie or play online games. 

That got Swedish Internet provider Umea Energi thinking. How would people react to lag in real life? So they conducted an experiment with four volunteers who attempted to perform everyday tasks while wearing virtual reality goggles that had a 3 second delay.

Super Mario Destroys Man’s House

Imagine after an afternoon of gaming, Mario escaped from the television and entered our reality.

You’d come home to find your house destroyed, covered in Koopa shells and Goomba remains. 

That’s exactly what filmmaker John Huffnagle imagined in his new viral video, Mario is Destroying my house.

Real Life Flappy Bird In A Box Is Better Than The Original Video Game

Digital video games which were once only for nerds and geeks have gone mainstream. We all love video games, but there’s just something magical about a game in real life.

After the explosion of Flappy Bird, Fawn Qiu made a real life version in a box at the Tribeca Hack-athon using just an Arduino, two servo motors, a reed switch, and some magnets.  

Her real life version–inspired by the classic Mario in a box game–became an instant hit. Video demonstrating the game has gone viral online with over 1.4 million views!
