  • Do you know any dogs that love to sing? Well, Dexter the dog loves to sing along to opera. His owner Nolan Boatwright proved that in a video he shot and uploaded. Here’s the thing though, Dexter only likes to sing one song. It's one that’s featured in commercial actually, and you might of heard it. Take a look at the video:

  • If you have any negative feelings or opinions about Miley Cyrus, set them aside for a little while during this story. A young blind girl from the Philippines is taking the web’s breath away with her rendition of Cyrus’ "Wrecking Ball," sung while she reads the lyrics in braille.

    The crooner is 11-year-old Joyce Jimenez. She lives in Luzon, the largest Philippine island. The video was uploaded to YouTube by George Doton and it has already been viewed more than 400,000 times and growing.

  • Even though it appears on subscriber cable, "Homeland" is a cultural sensation among critics and viewers. And "Sesame Street," which is known for tapping into the Zeitgeist, has just proved how big a mark "Homeland" has made. In "Homelamb," a group of sheep is looking to catch the Big Bad Wolf, much like Carrie Mathison's tireless effort to catch Abu Nazir and, earlier, Nicholas Brody. Or, in the case of "Sesame Street," Nicholas Baaa-rody. Actually, throughout "Homelamb," there are a lot of baaas all around. The spoof begins with a spot-on interpretation of the Showtime series' intro, complete with black-and-white archival footage and jazz music. And all the characters are there — Saaa-ul, Caaa-rrie, and of course, Baaa-rody.

    The spoof reminded us of some of "Sesame Street's" other great parody videos, which number in the dozens. Here are a few of our favorites.

  • A serious social issue in Saudi Arabia is getting some more attention thanks to a viral YouTube video. In light of the recent buzz surrounding Saudi women rebelling against the country’s ban on females driving, 26-year-old Saudi comedian Hisham Fageeh released a parody music video titled “No Woman, No Drive”, a clever take on Bob Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry.” The spoof video was produced with the help of Fageeh’s musician friends Fahad Albutairi and Alaa Wardi. Lyrics include: “In this bright future, you can’t forget your past, so put your car key away.” The video was uploaded to YouTube where it has already been viewed more than 3.8 million times so far. Fageeh says the idea for the video came to him while he was in the shower singing the Bob Marley classic in his head.

    The “No Woman, No Drive” video was released with Arabic subtitles on October 26th to coincide with the day planned for women to take the wheel and protest the ban. About 60 women ended up participating, however many of

  • "Grandpa Bill" has spent the last 15 years building an incredibly ornate and humongous model train town in his house. His grandson, Ryan Crets, a.k.a. Redditor Im_Not_Batman, wanted to see what the place would look like from the POV of one of the town's trains. So Crets strapped a GoPro camera to the front of a locomotive and sent it around the track. The resulting footage is entrancing, and oddly convincing in a way that makes you think you might be traveling around a real town. The post became a hit on Reddit, and the views of the YouTube video of the trip soon surpassed 200,000. Commenters had high praise, such as, "That's crazy dedicated, nice job." People even remixed it with audio from things like the "Thomas the Tank Engine" theme song to put a different spin on it. Crets also posted another video featuring his family surrounding the village, which really highlights the difference in size between the town and actual humans. It's heartwarming to know that for Grandpa Bill, the
