    A few weeks ago, the Miami Heat held open auditions for its dance squad. Dozens of hopeful women turned out, but it was one very talented guy who stole the show.

    Keith Wilson’s audition video is going viral, and it’s not hard to see why.

    During the freestyle round, Beyoncé’s “Run the World (Girls)” started to play, and Wilson told BuzzFeed that he knew he’d kill it.

    “It was very simple and easy for me to catch the beat, catch the move, and just milk it for what it was,” he said.

    Wilson made it to the third round of tryouts, but not the final cut. He believes this is because of his gender.

    This wasn’t the first time the 28-year-old dance teacher had shown up for the Heat open calls; he auditioned for the first time in 2012.

    Still, Wilson hopes that one day he’ll be able to join the dance squad on the court.

    He told Local 10, “The Heat is actually one of those organizations that’s open to anything, so I’m pretty sure one day it will happen.”

    Until then, we’ll have to be content with

  • Boring in-flight safety videos are largely ignored by passengers before takeoff, despite the important information they contain.

    Well, one WestJet Airlines flight attendant took matters into his own hands and decided to give his passengers a reason to pay attention.

    He acted out the in-flight safety instructions, adding his own personal flair along the way — making the seat belt a little too tight and using his oxygen mask as a beak.

    After his demonstration was finished, he took a much deserved bow.

    The video was uploaded on Facebook by one of the passengers with the caption: “We had the best in-flight crew on WestJet. Laughed so hard.”

    In-flight safety has never been so entertaining.

  • It was just another typical weekend for SpaceX and Tesla Motors founder Elon Musk and his wife, Talulah Riley, as the couple took a casual stroll on the wing of a flying airplane! Their high-flying daredevil antics were featured on Riley's Instagram feed.

    The couple went flying with the Breitling wing-walking team in Hampshire, England. The luxury watch company offers daring souls the opportunity to wing walk on a plane flying at speeds up to 130 mph.

    Musk shared a photo of himself on the wing of the plane. The caption read, “Went for a nice wing walk. What could possibly go wrong?”

    Not sure, but we'll stick to walking on the ground.

  • Brittany Nicole Creech has just raised the bar for all senior portraits out there.

    Ditching the traditional awkwardly posed outdoor glamour shots, the high school senior opted to do something unique. She had her pictures taken at her favorite hangout place, Taco Bell.  

    The 17-year-old tweeted : “Remember when I told you guys I was gonna get my senior pictures at Taco Bell and you thought I was joking.” 

    She was certainly not joking, and her fast-food senior portraits have gone viral.

    Brittany wanted pictures that captured her personality, she told Buzzfeed News, "I think most seniors get their pictures taken outside. I had some of those taken, too, but I also wanted something a little more fun."

    The high schooler even got a nod from Taco Bell when it tweeted out “Senior picture goals.”

    We couldn’t agree more! We think Taco Bell has found the face for its next ad campaign.

  • To highlight the inequality of female athletes in terms of salaries and media coverage, decided to showcase the talent of female soccer players in a new prank video.

    Two women soccer pros, Raquel Benetti and Alice Fougeray, put a group of guys to shame when they crashed a pickup game.

    The pair were incognito, dressed as a girl in a summer dress and a fragile grandma. The two female players were quickly disregarded by the men.

    “I play soccer, too” Raquel called out to one of the men, to which he replied, “You look like you're going to the mall.”

    Well, looks certainly were deceiving in this case. Soon after Benetti and Fougeray joined the game, they showed what they could really do. They shot goal after goal and also did tricks.

    The message of the video is pretty clear: Don't underestimate female players.
