  • So, you made a New Year’s resolution to get in shape, and you have already given up on it? This is an all-too-familiar story. We found a video that might just give you the motivational boost you need. Check out 23-year-old Brendan from Australia. He not only runs on the treadmill, but also he simultaneously drums to the beat of Metallica’s classic “Enter Sandman” without missing a beat.

    Brendan describes himself as an obsessed marathon runner and out-of-work drummer. He says he’s not particularly good at either but that combining the two makes for a good laugh. Since 2013, he has uploaded six videos of himself treadmill drumming to some of his favorite tunes, including “Bring Me to Life” by Evanescence and “Break Me Shake Me” by Savage Garden. He recently sold his treadmill, but since his YouTube channel has seen a boost in treadmill-drumming interest lately, Brendan says he may pick up another treadmill so that he can continue to give his fans what they want.

  • Ever wonder what happens when you mix rock climbing and ballet? Well, wonder no more.

    Dancers Amelia Rudolph and Roel Seeber of the Bandaloop dance troupe donned climbing gear to perform a beautiful routine on the face of a cliff.

    The pair secured themselves to the Red Rock Beach cliffs in Northern California to dance this gravity-defying routine.

    This isn’t the first time the duo has performed an aerial dance. Back in August, the two danced on the facade of the City Hall building in Oakland.

    Bandaloop specializes in this form of vertical dance, and we can’t wait to see where this brave pair performs next!

  • Losing your cool in public happens to the best of us. There are plenty of reasons to have a complete meltdown, but missing your ferry is typically not one of them. Well, don’t tell that to the star of today’s show. While ferry passenger Peter Flaatten was waiting at the Tsawwassen terminal in British Columbia, he recorded one woman’s epic freak-out when she discovered she missed the ferry by just five minutes. She is seen in the video screaming, “I am so mad! I am so mad! Five f***ing minutes. … You have no idea what it means to people, no f***ing idea! ... No feelings for people.”
     

    According to the comments section of Reddit, where the video picked up a lot of steam, the ferry she missed was from Vancouver to Vancouver Island — about a 90-minute trip. While most of the commenters on the Reddit post think the woman was acting like a spoiled child, a few cut her some slack — with one person writing, “You never know what someone is going through.” This video brings back fond memories of

  • It’s time to break out the tissues because this viral engagement video is certainly a tearjerker.

    Singer Michael Franti popped the question to his longtime girlfriend, Sara Agah, and it is a proposal three years in the making.

    Franti created the engagement video using clips of Sara that he shot on his iPhone throughout their three years together, set to his 2013 song “Life Is Better With You.”

    In a 2013 interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Franti explained that Sara was his inspiration for the song. “I told [Sara] that even my worst day with her is better than any day I had before she was in my life, and out came the words, 'Life is better with you.' I picked up the guitar and wrote the song right then,” he said.
    The singer took to Facebook on Tuesday to announce his engagement and share the video.

    “At a surprise dinner I planned in Bali, I played her the song on acoustic guitar and then showed her the video.” Franti wrote in the Facebook post. “Needless to say she was quite moved and

  • Roman Atwood is known for his various and hilarious pranks, but he may have pulled off the most epic one yet.

    While his wife, Brittney Smith, was away for the afternoon, the YouTube star and prankster decided to turn his house into one giant ball pit!

    Atwood has pulled some pretty horrible pranks on his wife in the past, but this epic prank may make up for them.

    With the help of family and friends, Atwood filled the first floor of his house with 250,000 plastic balls to create a sprawling 2-foot-high ball pit.

    Atwood staged it so that when Smith opened the garage doors, she would be greeted by tons of plastic balls spilling out.

    “Are you kidding me?” she asked after realizing her husband had pranked her.

    Once inside the house, Smith jumped into the ball pit/living room and started to play with her sons.

    The video has racked up more than 12 million views since it was first posted on January 18.
