How would you like the pop princess to show up unexpectedly at your bridal shower? If you’re Gena, it might be the best moment of your life. Watch as T-Swift surprises a lucky fan.

What does it feel like to lose a million dollars, a free car, and your dignity, all in 30 minutes of prime-time television? We have no idea, but feel free to ask Julian from Indiana University. The poor—literally and figuratively—Wheel of Fortune contestant managed to produce three epic fails in a single episode. There’s never been a more cringe-worthy performance on Wheel, which means there’s never been a more entertaining one.

These nine seconds have been seemingly ubiquitous in the past several days. Apparently this is what you get when you try to take a selfie too close to a passing train.
