  • Toddler Freaks Out After Dad Shaves Off His Beard

    Mia Fitzharris at Trending Now1 day ago

    Never in the history of peekaboo has the outcome been so dramatic. One toddler learned the hard way that the fun game does not always end well. 

    In a new YouTube video, Bradley Bailey covers his face with a towel and has his adorable daughter look for him under it a few times. His wife catches the cuteness on camera. Then Bailey steps away, secretly shaving off his beard, and comes back to continue the peekaboo fun. But it isn't so fun for his little one — when the tot lifts up the towel this time, she finds a barefaced man she doesn't seem to recognize. It looks like she's thinking, "Who the heck is this guy?" before beginning to wail. Well, kid, beard or no beard, that's your father. The video was posted to YouTube on Sept. 11 and has been viewed more than 820,000 times. Some commenters think the trick was a cruel move on the part of the girl's parents, with one person writing, "It should be a crime to upload sick videos like this, poor girl. You KNEW that she liked the facial hair, but you still shaved it off, just to make the poor thing cry." We think the real crime here was shooting the video vertically.

  • Vogueing EMT Catches the Attention of Rihanna

    Mia Fitzharris at Trending Now4 mths ago

    Move over every single YouTube video of people singing and dancing to Pharrell Williams's "Happy," there's a new viral video in town that will put all the rest to shame.

    YouTube user mastekz hv uploaded a dashboard-camera video featuring an EMT who is having the best day ever at work while driving an ambulance. He is using a walkie-talkie to chat with a friend, when the paramedic spontaneously busts out his hottest vogue moves — while driving. You should never try this yourself, as the man is seen taking both hands off the steering wheel several times. Although it was nice to see that he saved his most intense moves for when the vehicle is stopped at a traffic light.

    Obviously the EMT is not dancing to Madonna's classic "Vogue." Instead, the jam that got him so amped up and triggered his ambulance performance is a mashup of Rihanna's "Pour it Up" and Juicy J's "Bandz a Make Her Dance." In this case, it seems bands make him dance as well.

  • Couple Documents Pregnancy With Time-Lapse Video

    Mia Fitzharris at Trending Now5 mths ago

    Bump photography has become a hot trend in the pregnancy world, or so I'm told. And one couple's clever way of recording their little one's growth is very, very cool. British singer and YouTube celebrity Tom Fletcher and his wife, Giovanna, took one photo every day for nine months, and then strung them together for this stop-motion video:

    Like the song? It's called "Something New," and as you might have guessed, Tom wrote it himself for his new baby boy, Buzz Michelangelo Fletcher. Little Buzz makes his debut at the end of the YouTube video, which has racked up more than 438,000 views so far. One commenter exclaims, "This is absolutely beautiful."

    The Fletchers are very popular on YouTube already, with their other viral video of the speech at their wedding garnering more than 12 million views. I bet Buzz will be appearing in a video or two in the near future.

    We are really glad the Fletchers chose such a decent way to show off their impending bundle of joy. As you may know, some couples don't always go that route.
