Identical triplets Rafala, Rocheli and Tagiane Bini have shared everything over the years — their birthday, looks, and similar tastes. And now they can add a wedding day to that list. Yes, that’s right — the 29-year-old triplets from Brazil all got married on the same day. They even all wore the same wedding dress and hairstyle. Rocheli said, “We tried a number of styles, but we all liked the same one. It’s not even worth trying — it always ends up like that.” Their varying bouquet colors were the only way you could really tell the girls apart. Dad Pedro had a dilemma when trying to figure out how he would walk all three girls down the aisle. He said, “We decided that we would all walk down the aisle until halfway down the church. From there, I would take one at a time.” We bet Pedro’s glad to have saved on paying for two more weddings!

It’s Wednesday, so that must mean another “Uptown Funk” video is making the rounds on the Internet. But this latest video is no parody — it’s so much better! This little kid took the philosophy “dance like nobody is watching” to heart as he jammed out to the hit tune in the stands at a New York hockey game. Even when he notices that he is on the Jumbotron and that all eyes are on him, he doesn’t miss a beat. Dance on, kid!

A video of an ultrasound is going viral, and you have to see it to believe it. Jen Cardinal, from Olympia, Wash., uploaded a clip to YouTube from her baby’s 14-week prenatal checkup. In it, you see the baby clapping his or her little hands as the mom and dad sing “If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.” The video has racked up a whopping 4 million views so far. It was actually Jen’s doctor’s idea to film the incredible clapping baby’s ultrasound performance. And for any naysayers out there who think the video is a fake, Jen had this to say, “The experience is one I'll never forget. The baby clapped three times, then the doctor rewound and scrubbed it while we sang. No mystery. It was amazing. Trolls won't get me down!” We spoke with Jen and asked her if the baby comes from a long line of music enthusiasts. She told us her family was “very musical growing up.” She and her husband used the video on Facebook to announce their pregnancy to family and friends. She said, “We had been trying for three years to get pregnant. We went from not thinking we would get pregnant to having the most fun and surprising pregnancy.”

Traditionally the story of Passover is read out loud during a Seder, but this year a group of engineering students from an Israeli university decided to tell the story a little differently. Students from Technion created an impressive Passover-themed Rube Goldberg machine to tell the story. According the Rube Goldberg Inc. website, a Rube Goldberg machine is “an elaborate set of arms, wheels, gears, handles, cups and rods, put in motion by balls, canary cages, pails, boots, bathtubs, paddles and live animals [that] takes a simple task and makes it extraordinarily complicated." This clever machine hits on all of the key events, including baby Moses in a basket, the burning bush, the plagues and even the splitting of the Red Sea! “We wanted the machine to display central holiday themes: the Red Sea, Moses in the wicker basket, the ten plagues and the burning bush,” said Nadav Maccabi, one of the designers. “We worked on the construction of the machine about a week.” So what does the machine ultimately do? It lifts the lid off a Seder plate in front of the machines’ designers.

We all remember what happened when a pig thought it was a sheepdog. Well, it turns out pigs may not be the biggest threat to a sheepdog’s career. A farmer in Ireland replaced his four-legged friends with Shep — the world’s first drone sheepdog. Footage from Shep shows how the drone is able to successfully herd the sheep across a field and through a narrow gate. Drones have many potential uses, but we don’t think anyone saw this coming.

A Minnesota weatherman had the whole newsroom laughing after he whipped a wire coat hanger out of his jacket on air! Local weatherman Steve Frazier was standing by the news desk with the two anchors when he realized something was wrong with his suit jacket. Frazier stopped mid sentence, pulled out the hanger, and tossed it on the desk in front of him. Needless to say, the news anchors couldn’t keep their cool and started laughing on set. Frazier attempted to continue on with the weather report but had to stop to explain how the hanger found its way into his suit in the first place. “I went to the gym today, and the suit was fitting tight and I couldn’t figure out why, but I must have put it on too quick,” Frazier said. Don’t you just hate when that happens?

Usually, going to driving school is nerve-wracking for the student and just a normal day at work for the instructor. Well, pranksters at MaxMan.TV on YouTube have turned the tables and put a few driving instructors in the hot seat. Malaysian professional race car driver Leona Chin disguised herself and showed up for driving school with instructors who were on their first day on the job. First, she let the instructors think she was an amateur, as she appears to struggle with the stick shift. The instructors in the video appear to get impatient with the seemingly bad driver. Then, Chin puts the prank into overdrive. She starts driving out of control, and the instructors are completely shocked — and also scared for their lives. As Chin whips through a parking lot, one of the instructors screams, “You almost hit people.” One female instructor even clutches her seat belt for dear life. The driving school actually came up with the whole idea and pitched it to max man. Lucky for them because the video has been viewed more than 6 million times so far!

After Dayna Rumfelt’s eight-year marriage fell apart, she didn’t want her wedding dress hanging around her closet — so she set off on a mission to not just get rid of the dress but to destroy any last vestige of it. With the help of her family and friends, Rumfelt spent the better part of seven months going all “Game of Thrones” on the dress, literally dragging it through the mud, jumping into a lake with it and wearing it to play paintball. “Jumping into a lake doesn’t screw your dress up quite like you’d expect,” Rumfelt told the Huffington Post. “It’s funny how when you’re getting married your wedding dress seems so fragile, but really when it comes down to it, those suckers are tough as nails. Outside of the smell, once the dress dried, it was fine.” But none of these things could take the indestructible dress down. After everything else failed, she burned the dress in a big bonfire. “I felt such a sense of relief watching it burn,” Rumfelt said. “Almost all my negative energy had transferred to the dress over time, and it had made me so sad to see it. I slept really well the night of the bonfire. The dress just had to go.”

Just when you thought there couldn’t be another “Uptown Funk” parody left to make, a new one emerges. This latest, Passover-themed cover of the hit song by Mark Ronson (featuring Bruno Mars) was created by the Jewish singing group Six13. According to group member Mordy Weinstein, choosing “Uptown Funk” as their next song was “kind of a no-brainer.” “We’ve been listening to it nonstop. It’s the most popular song on radio and has been for awhile,” Weinstein said. You may remember this group from its viral hit last December, a Hanukkah parody of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” or last year’s “Frozen” Passover parody,aptly titled “Chozen.” We can’t wait to see what song these guys will parody next.

Leave it to the jokers at College Humor on YouTube to call out people who make a big deal about quitting Facebook. In its latest video, the group compares such an event to leaving a party. A man enters a party and calls attention to himself with the help of a trumpet. Then he says, “Attention, attention everyone. I have an announcement to make.” Once he has all eyes and ears on him, he says, “I am leaving this party.” He goes on to explain that he is just different from the rest of the people at the party — special, perhaps — saying, “I do not like your conversations. The things you share are sensational at best.” He adds, “I will be a better person when I finally leave this place.” And finally, he makes his grand exit saying, “Goodbye people I kind of knew from high school.” After he leaves, a few seconds go by, and he returns holding a baby and exclaims, “Good news everyone… ,” illustrating the people on your Facebook feed who only come around when something good happens for them, like a marriage or the birth of a new baby. Commenters on the YouTube video love the realness of the comparison. One person wrote, “Finally! Something that visually represents how I see people who perform the ‘I’m leaving Facebook!’ spectacle.”
