  • Someone is giving extra thanks to the bike gods today! In an incredibly close call with death, a Russian cyclist found himself caught in the middle of a collision between a delivery truck and a car, but luckily he managed to walk away unharmed.

    The incident occurred about 40 minutes south of Moscow's city center on Sept. 19. It was recorded on the city's CCTV cameras, which were installed for the "Safe City" surveillance project.

    In the video, a man is riding his bike through a crosswalk when suddenly a delivery truck collides with a red car that was driving parallel with the biker. It appears that the delivery truck ignored the right of way and darted across the intersection, smashing into the red car. Debris from both vehicles flies, and the delivery truck tips, balances briefly on two wheels, and then quickly rolls over. Miraculously, the cyclist is not hit by the red car, which spins out of control, but he is knocked off his bike by the brush of the truck's front bumper as it is

  • Cats and the Internet go together like peanut butter and jelly, and Meow Mix is banking on that concept. The brand's advertising team came up with a new way to appeal to the less-talked-about cat owners — cat guys. In a new YouTube video titled "Country Cat," J.R. Moore (aka country music singer Justin Moore) sings about what he loves to do when he gets home from a long day of hard work. Spoiler alert: It's playing with his cat. The 2-minute video will have you tapping your foot, especially to this line: "Listen to that purrin' the records are turnin'…"

    This is the second Meow Mix music video in its "It's Meow Time" campaign, which features remixed versions of its famous jingle. The first was a trippy, electronic dance music version released in August. Whether you love or hate the two new videos, the company has come a long way since its original 1970s jingle.

    Good luck getting this country tune out of your head. If you're feeling inspired, you should upload your own version at

  • Apple's announcement on Sept. 9 of the new 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus was big. Really big. Huge even. You get the point. It seems like all anyone can talk about are the phone sizes, and that includes best friends Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon, who appear in two new Apple commercials that were released on YouTube Monday night. In the first video, titled "Huge," the pair poke fun at the way everyone is obsessed with the size of the smartphones.

    If you can stop talking about the phones' sizes for a minute, you can watch the next Timberlake and Fallon collaboration, an ad titled "Cameras." This one is about the awesomeness of the phones' cameras, which feature slow motion and a new time-lapse setting.

    Both spots only feature Fallon and Timberlake's voices and hands, but still left us smiling.  We didn't expect anything less from the funny duo, who have famously appeared in several sketches together, like their "Hashtags" bit on Fallon's "Tonight Show" and the

  • It's no secret that some professional football stars haven't exactly behaved like great role models recently, so it's refreshing to meet a young player who seems to be heading in the right direction. Apollos Hester is a wide receiver on the East View High School football team in Georgetown, Texas, where they take football pretty seriously. Hester's team was able to win Friday's game with an amazing comeback (the score was 42-41). 

    During his postgame interview with a sports reporter from TWC Austin, Lauren Mickler, Hester's words proved just as good as his moves on the field. The only question Mickler asked was "What were you guys able to do to come back and win this thing?" Hester responded with a motivational speech which included this quote: "Keep smiling, no matter what you're going through. If you fall down, just get up. If you can't get up, your friends are there to help you. Your momma's there, your daddy's there, God's there... hey, I'm there to help you up."

    Mickler posted the

  • Unfortunately, sometimes high school looks a lot like a real-life version of the movie "Mean Girls." Case in point, a group of girls at Grand Prairie High School in north Texas tricked 17-year-old Lillian Skinner into thinking she was nominated for the homecoming court.

    The truth is, she wasn't actually nominated, but the story doesn't end there. Her two friends Anahi Alvarez and Naomi Martinez, who were nominated, heard about the cruel prank and came up with a plan. They decided that if either of them won, the winner would give the crown to Lillian. "We promised each other, and we were like, 'No matter what, no backing down. If one of us wins, we're giving Lillian the crown,'" Martinez told NBCDFW.

    In order to get Skinner down to the field during the crowning ceremony, the friends told the school's principal, Lorimer Arendse, about their plans. Then the winner was announced, and Alvarez was crowned the queen. Moments later, Alvarez placed the crown on Skinner. "I was like, 'Wow,
