  • A video of 10-year-old Lacey Parker learning she made her middle school cheerleading squad has gone viral.

    Making the squad has been a dream of Lacey’s since her older sisters were on the team, so Lacey’s teacher and principal encouraged her to try out.

    On Friday May 1, the names of the girls who made the team were posted online. When the big moment came to find out if Lacey was going to be a cheerleader, one of her sisters was on hand to record Lacey’s reaction.

    “I made it!” Lacey screams in the video.

    Lacey’s mom, Renee, posted the video for family and friends, but the sweet video has gone viral and has been seen millions of times on Facebook.

    “It’s just so amazing that one little girl has touched so many people by achieving her dream,” said Renee.

    Lacey has Down syndrome, but according to her mom she has never let that get in her way.

    “Down syndrome is a label; it’s not who she is. She’s an amazing little girl who strives to do whatever she wants to do,” says Renee. “She’s always told

  • Veteran prankster Rémi Gaillard took Tetris, everyone’s favorite old-school game, off the computer screen and brought it onto the streets.

    And Gaillard’s Tetris stunt definitely kicks things up a notch. He and his friends, all dressed as different Tetris-shaped bricks, worked together to create a complete line, even if that meant blocking escalator entrances and elevator exits and running into people.

    From stopping traffic to infuriating strangers on the streets, Gaillard’s game of Tetris is much more intense than the computer version we remember. We don’t recommend trying this at home.

  • Actor Jamie Costa is back with a new video, once again wowing us with his amazing celebrity impressions.

    This time around, it’s a trip to Middle Earth. Costa impersonates Sir Ian McKellen’s Gandalf, asking who would like to join him on a quest. It’s an unlikely bunch of celebrities who volunteer to go along.

    From Matthew McConaughey to George W. Bush, his impressions are spot on, but the best one of all is definitely his Robin Williams.

    This isn’t the actor’s first time channeling the late comedian. Costa’s Robin Williams tribute video went viral last month, and has attracted more than 3.5 million views to date.

  • A New York City rapper who goes by the name Hi-Rez came up with a superclever way to get his fast-food craving fulfilled.

    Coby Persin from the YouTube channel Model Pranksters called on his rapper pal to place the coolest Mickey D’s order ever.  He entered the McDonald’s in Times Square, walked up to the cash register and started rattling off basically every item on the menu. “Let me get two Big Macs, and two apple pies, a little bit of Sprite and a side of fries…”  

    At the end of the hip-hopped list, Hi-Rez asks the worker: “Did you get all that?” It’s safe to say that no, he did not!

    The whole thing was posted to the Model Pranksters YouTube page, where it has gotten more than 1.9 million views so far.  Not only has Hi-Rez snagged the attention of fans online, he also got a nod from rapper Lil Wayne, who posted the link to the video on his Facebook page, writing, “Drop the beat, not the fries.”  We just want to know what the total came to!

    Armed with wigs, fake beards and upside-down buckets for drums, U2 gave a surprise performance Monday night on a New York subway platform, dressed as street performers.

    Bono and the band took over the S train platform at Grand Central Station to treat commuters to some of their greatest hits. 

    Eventually, the band ditched the disguises and continued to rock out! 

    U2 will appear on “The Tonight Show” this Friday, and many believe this impromptu performance was a bit for the show … especially since Jimmy Fallon was spotted in the crowd. 

    Among many people who recorded and took pictures of the subway performance was celebrity chef Mario Batali. It’s unclear if he was part of the stunt or  just passing through, but he clearly enjoyed the show. His Instagram post read, “This makes a compelling case for subway travel!! … wheeeeeeee!!!!

    this makes a compelling case for subway travel!! @U2 www.u2.com. wheeeeeeee!!!!
