  • A new YouTube video with over three million views shows one child screaming, falling, and then screaming again for ice cream.

    Selina O’Meara of Nenagh, Ireland was babysitting her godchild Liam and his older brother Luke. The professional photographer decided to snap a few photos of the kids as they ate beans and toast.

    “Luke was putting all of the beans in the bowl (on his toast),” O’Meara tells us. “I thought, ‘This is gonna go wrong.’”

    Sure enough, moments after hitting record, young Liam takes a tumble off of a ledge in the kitchen. Not five seconds later, Luke hears a sound in the background.

    “The ice cream…” he yells, not able get the word “truck” out of his mouth before falling out of his chair. O’Meara begins laughing before exclaiming “Oh my God!” as she pans down to see Luke crying his eyes out.

    “He was okay,” she said. “The chairs aren’t really that high.”

    Luke and Liam’s mother thought it was hilarious. They decided to upload the clip to YouTube and post it on Facebook so

  • Sara Maria Forsberg has become an overnight YouTube sensation. Her videos have received over 10 million views in the span of less than a week and a half.

    It all started nine days ago, with the upload of “What Languages Sound Like To Foreigners.” Forsberg tells us that she was always fascinated with languages and dialects; she speaks three fluently. So she decided to mimic a number of different ways that people talk to one another.

    Reviews were mostly positive but definitely mixed. The video gained 100,000 views overnight and since has been viewed 7.7 million times.

    Forsberg followed that up with a sequel in which she answers a few frequently asked questions. Just two days ago, she uploaded another video where she mimics 14 different “genres,” or in some cases, descriptions, of music. Both of those videos have eclipsed a million views.

    The Finnish teenager graduated high school and chef school. She has a day job but since gaining Internet fame, has put it on hold. Her family and friends

  • A GoPro video of a man skiing off a cliff to save his brother is going viral again thanks to Reddit.

    The video first surfaced a few months ago. Davis LaMair, his brother Edwin, and a friend were on the slopes at East Vail Chutes in Colorado on Dec. 22, 2013. The brothers start at the same point but head downhill in different directions. Davis, who has the camera affixed to his head, stops as soon as he reaches a cliff.

    "Is that an avalanche?" he asks another skier who is off camera. "That's Edwin in an avalanche! Yo, I'm dropping, I'm dropping."

    Davis skillfully moves off the cliff, down the slope, and over to his brother. Edwin is mostly submerged in snow. After knocking off his skies and ripping off the camera, Davis digs Edwin out to safety.

    Talking to the website BroBible, Edwin recalled the incident that almost took his life.

    "The slide took me downhill and the front of my skis hit the tree trunk, and I fell headfirst downhill into the slide," he wrote. "I slid another couple

  • It was a mere eight days ago that a Finnish teenager named Sara posted a video to her YouTube account called, “What Languages Sound Like To Foreigners.”

    Since then, the video has been viewed 7.2 million times. A sequel video is on pace to hit a million views. Sara is now enlisting the help of a family member to act as a publicist. As you can probably guess, he’s fielding calls from “Ellen” and “Good Morning America.”

    The YouTube star’s latest original video is also gaining a lot of buzz. Uploaded Sunday, Sara moves from languages to music genres. In “One Girl, 14 Genres,” the teenager mimics what different musical styles sound like to her.

    Similar to her languages impressions, she lists a more descriptive term for the music instead of the actual genre. For her “jazzy” sound, Sara sings a bunch of gibberish in a deep, soulful voice. Moving “musical,” she sings in a more up-tempo, cheery tone. Then later during her rendition of “hipster indie” she jokes, “I don’t even have a melody but

  • A flight attendant and trained figure skater is turning the friendly skies into a fired-up dance party.

    Michael Tongko became a YouTube star after the first of the year. In December, the flight attendant began entertaining passengers with choreographed moves during the opening safety announcements. There is an in-flight video of the dance that plays before takeoff, but first-class passengers cannot see it because their monitors are stowed.

    So Tongko brings the show right to the aisle.

    Zac Bowling posted the first viral video of Tongko's dance. The software engineer was flying back to San Francisco from Las Vegas, where he attended CES.

    "Grab my camera as fast as possible!" was Bowling's first thought when the flight attendant began running up and down the cabin, gyrating while demonstrating the proper use of a seat buckle and oxygen mask. "He likes showing off, but he's a great guy."

    Thanks to the FAA relaxing regulations on in-flight electronics use, Bowling was able to film Tongko.
