Fancy Pants Dance, World Cup Poseurs, and More Viral Videos
From old man Jagger and Monty Python to the amazing hands-free pants dancer, WATCH our countdown of this week’s buzziest videos.
5. World Cup of Lies
Once again, Jimmy Kimmel pounds the pavement of Hollywood Boulevard, this time in search of World Cup know-it-alls. Or at least, people who think they are. Watch as Angelenos pretend to be authorities on American soccer star Landon Donovan’s performance in this year’s World Cup. The responses are interesting, especially because Donovan didn’t qualify for the U.S. team, and has been gigging as an ESPN commentator instead.
4. One Song, One Singer, 29 Voices
Rob Cantor impersonates everyone from Christina Aguilera to Bono to Sir Ian McKellen while singing an original song, “Perfect.” For his next trick, he should record a one-man cover of “We Are the World.”
3. Mick Jagger’s 70-Year-Old ‘Python’
“A bunch of wrinkly old men trying to relive their youth and make a load of money.” The description could apply easily to the Rolling Stones, but here, it’s Stones frontman Mick Jagger talking about iconic comedy troupe Monty Python. Granted, he’s saying this in a promotional video for the Septuagenarian Reunion Tour—now running in London—so it’s good-natured fun all around.
2. The Kindness of Strangers
Carol Flynn wasn’t expecting anything in return when she offered to pay for another Walmart customer’s diapers. She certainly wasn’t expecting that anyone would capture it on video and make her a sensation. Her “random act of kindness” has struck a chord with people across the country, warming hearts and giving hope.
1. Fancy Pants Dance
A Chinese man, dubbed the Superman of Pants, left the Internet’s collective mouth agape when he shook and shimmied a pair of trousers on without the use of his hands. He’s probably not going to start a new fad, but it’s fun to imagine what that would look like.
