  • If you read this blog regularly, you know that we love ourselves a GoPro video or three. Close encounters with animals, daredevil stunts, and one-of-a-kind perspectives all contribute to the large number of viral videos filmed with the small high-definition camera.

    Homeless GoPro is a project that aims to build "empathy through firsthand perspective." It is certainly a one-of-a-kind point of view, but it does not involve a helmet or skateboard mount. Kevin Adler, 29, was inspired by his uncle Mark to start this endeavor.

    "Mark was also homeless," he wrote on the Homeless GoPro website. "He suffered from schizophrenia, and spent 30 years on and off the streets and in and out of halfway houses."

    Adler visited Mark's gravesite for the first time in almost 10 years, and it sparked his interest in people who live on the streets and are forgotten or ignored daily.

    GoPro donated a Hero3+ Silver Edition to Adler's cause. Adler found a volunteer to wear the camera in Adam Reichart. The 44

  • Avon High School in Avon, Ind., is raising money for a local hospital and having a lot of fun in the process.

    The 2,700 students united for a video in which they lip sync to some of the most popular songs from last year. Athletes, drama students and everyone in between participated in the lip dub to "Pop Danthology 2013." Daniel Kim created the audio mashup, which features 68 songs ranging from Taylor Swift to Justin Timberlake to Bruno Mars.

    The video is impressive in many ways, one being that the mix is 6 and a half minutes long and the school needed only one take to film it. Throughout the piece, a camera weaves in and out of hallways and classrooms as students lip sync and dance along to the track. Some students are in sports uniforms, others wear shirts from the clubs they belong to, and a few are even in costume for the performance.

    In the video's grand finale, the camera makes its way into the gymnasium, where the entire student body is screaming and dancing.

  • And you thought picking a block out of the Jenga tower with your in-laws watching was nerve-wracking.

    In a new ad campaign titled "Built For It," Caterpillar Inc. decided to supersize its own version of the popular game so it could show off the precision of its excavators. Game aficionados and fans of Cat's large machines can appreciate the excavators and telehandlers moving 27 blocks that weigh 600 pounds each!

    In a behind-the-scenes video released by Caterpillar, workers are shown planning how the game will work. A team of designers and managers used regular-sized Jenga blocks and toy cars to map out the process.

    "I was hesitant but yet pretty excited to be apart of it," said Chad Cremeens, a field operations supervisor for Caterpillar. "It was amazing to me to see what everyone was able to do with these videos. Seeing it live, and then seeing it via the video; it was just amazing."

    It took two weeks to conceptualize and film the game. The final piece was shot in Edwards, Ill.

  • Some babies are just born to argue, even if they were born just 14 months ago and still do not have any words in their vocabulary.

    Case in point: a new video from YouTube user Ryan Delehanty. The London native uploaded a clip last Friday of him arguing with son. Apparently the baby wants to go out on to the ledge, and his father is having none of it. Delehanty is simply trying to get some laundry done.


    Of course, your guess as to why the baby is talking back to his father is as good as ours. While Delehanty's child does not seem to be speaking any particular language. He is polite enough to wait until his father is done talking before he begins to yell adorable gibberish back at him.

    Clearly this kid is destined to be a great attorney.

    The video is titled "You can't reason with babies" and has almost half a million views. On BuzzFeed, Delehanty wrote, "My 14 month old kid has a tendency to talk back, but he makes some good points."

    Viewers on YouTube find the

  • Fasten your seat belts, stow your belongings under your seat and put your electronics in airplane mode. Southwest Airlines' Martha Cobb has a few safety announcements, and a couple of jokes to share as well. The Houston-based flight attendant known as Marty is gaining national attention thanks to a YouTube video that shows her comedic twist on the routine briefing before takeoff.

    "If we could pretend to have your attention for just a few moments, my ex-husband, my new boyfriend and their divorce attorney are going to show you the safety features," she begins, immediately eliciting laughter from the cabin. She then moves to seat-belt operation. "Position your seat belt tight and low across your hips, like my grandmother wears her support bra."

    During the routine, Cobb refers to the floor lighting as "disco lights," the safety information card as a "door prize" and the life jacket as a "teeny, weeny, yellow Southwest bikini." It is a routine she perfected over a couple of years, and she
