    The interpreter, Mark Cave, has been dubbed #SignGuy on Twitter, and viewers have fallen in love with his larger-than-life, animated expressions.
     
    “Early days but I declare the sign language translator at today’s press conference the star of TC Marcia. #TCMarcia,” tweeted @CookerandLooker.
     
    Another person, @czhedgehog, tweeted, “#signguy doing a GREAT JOB at press conf - #disability matters , thank you. #TCMarcia”

    As for Cave, he’s not a big fan of his new found Internet fame.

  • If you love a good prank, let us introduce you to the Teddy Bear Scare.

    It’s pretty self-explanatory: A man in a teddy bear costume scares unsuspecting bystanders.

    One man, wearing a teddy bear costume, sits motionless on a chair as his accomplice asks people walking down the street if they want to have their picture taken with a giant stuffed bear. Just before the picture is taken, the man in the bear costume makes his move to scare the innocent victim.

    Two pranksters pulled this epic stunt in Venice Beach, Calif., and as you can imagine, the reactions were pretty priceless.

  • Selfies and proposal videos are two things you might have seen a little too much of on the Web. But what about a selfie-proposal combo? That’s exactly what one boyfriend pulled off in a video going viral this week.  He pretended to take a selfie with his unsuspecting girlfriend, and then.… He popped the question, saying ,"Lisa May, will you marry me?" She responds with "Oh my God! Yeah! Are you serious right now? Is this for real? Oh my God! Oh my God! Yeah! Yeah!" So it’s safe to say that’s a solid “YES.”
     
    The video was originally posted to YouTube, but it gained major traction thanks to a reddit post by the groom-to-be's friend that reached the front page! Many commenters wrote that the video made them teary-eyed. Watch it and you might have the same reaction!

  • It’s safe to say that Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson’s hit “Uptown Funk” is to 2015 what Pharrell’s “Happy” was to 2014. You can’t get it out of you head, and countless parodies are popping up all over the Web. And this might be one of our favorites. It comes from California mom of two Deva Dalporto, who put a suburban spin on the catchy tune. The video stars Dalporto and fellow residents of a California suburb, who can be seen making everyday routine tasks looks fabulous. They are taking out the trash, buying in bulk, and cruising the town in a minivan. Some of the fun lyrics include “gardening, grilling, living it up outside the city.”

    The video was posted to Dalporto’s super-popular YouTube page, My Life Suckers. And with more than 600,000 views so far, it’s obvious a lot of moms and dads can relate to the “Suburban Funk”! One commenter wrote, “I like this better than the original.”

  • A Jewish journalist in Paris took to the streets to film what it is like for people of his religion to walk around in the predominantly Muslim areas of the City of Love. Zvika Klein, who works for news outlet NRG, put on his yarmulke and set off. He walked around for 10 hours, but the final video is 90 seconds long. In the video, Klein is spat upon and shouted at with a barrage of taunting comments such as “Viva  Palestine” and “Are you Jewish?”
     
    According to Klein, something not seen in the video are bystanders who spoke out against the people shouting the negative comments.
     
    The 90-second YouTube video is reminiscent of a clip from last October that went viral featuring a woman walking around in the streets of New York City experiencing harassing comments from men.
