But some of her super fanatics go to extreme lengths to prove their fierceness.  Enter Chris Koo.  He's best known for his talented dance moves featured on his YouTube page.  His most popular video, which raked in over 1 million views, is one of him showing off his moves to Beyonce's "Crazy in Love":

  • Nemanja Blazic knows his way around a basketball. He's posted videos to YouTube of himself schooling people on an outdoor court, as well as spinning a ball on a toothbrush while brushing his teeth. But in a new video, Blazic puts a scholarly spin on his usual spin. He can be seen writing the word, "Tricky," which is part of his YouTube channel's name, on a sheet of paper, while a basketball stays perched atop it, spinning all the while. Very impressive. Totally baller.

  • Unfortunately, a mother's job is often described as "thankless," but a video making the rounds on the Web features a few moms receiving the gift of appreciation from none other than their own kids. The video starts out with a few mothers critiquing their job as mom. Some of their statements: "I struggle with my temper," "I wish I was better at taking time to sit down and just listen more to my child," "I wish I was more confident in being a mom," and "I'm not the most patient person in the world."

    Then, a couple of days later, the same mothers are brought back in to watch a video. This time it's their kids who get to do all the talking. The children were asked what they thought of their moms, and they responded, "My mom is totally awesome," "She does cook a lot of food for me," "She loves me a lot," "I have a lot of favorite things about my mom," "She is like my heart ... because she is that close to me."

  • Most television advertisements don't bear mentioning outside of the 30 seconds that they appear on the tube. But that doesn't mean the medium can't be inventive and even downright beautiful. Sony's "4K — Behind the Scenes — Four Times the Detail" video ad features the movement of 8 million flower petals through the air, to highlight the 8 million pixels in one of Sony's next-generation 4K TVs. The petals seem to explode out of a volcano and cover the hills and valleys of a town nearby. What is most surprising about the ad, though, is you might expect it to involve special effects, but it's all real. To achieve the effect, the company brought 2.5 to 3 tons of air-moving equipment to the valley. A cool " making-of" short shows how much work went into the visuals in the ad. And if you're worried about the mess, Sony points out that all the petals are real, and of course, biodegradable.

    This ad actually reminded us of some other beautiful uses of advertising- ones that are worth watching

  • Boston sports fans are known for being a little rambunctious, but after the Red Sox defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1, winning the World Series last night, a few Sox fans may have gone too far. A newly released video shows riled up fans rushing a Boston street attempting to flip a car over. Luckily for the car owner, officers from the Boston Police department hopped off their bikes and intervened.

    Other drivers were not so lucky. Boston Globe photographer Jessica Rinaldi snapped a picture of a young man standing atop of an overturned car during a riot outside of Fenway Park. The web loved the man’s casual expression and cardigan sweater so much that they turned him into a meme: “Cardigan Man.”
