    Todrick Hall, known for his amazing mashups, this time around decided to tackle Taylor Swift’s catalog — and it’s something out of your wildest dreams.

    In addition to covering Swift’s latest hits, such as “Blank Space,”  “Style” and “Shake It Off,” the “American Idol” alum also put in throwbacks like “Love Story” and “You Belong With Me.”

    Hall titled the video “4 Taylor by Todrick Hall” and took the time to thank her at the end of it.

    For the record, Swift approves of the video. She tweeted: “I honestly can’t believe what I just saw. This amount of talent in one person has me speechless. I ❤️ @toddyrockstar.”

  • Say hello to the drone dentist, and, please, don’t try this at home!

    Back in June, Paul Borrud’s nephew Bruno asked him to help pull out a loose tooth. Instead of using the old doorknob-and-string method, they decided to use Borrud’s drone.

    Twenty-four hours later, they were ready to complete their drone tooth pull. They tied some dental floss to Bruno’s tooth, and then it was time for liftoff. Borrud said in the video description that he double-checked with Bruno one last time before the drone took off.

    All went smoothly and the tooth came out easily. Afterward, Bruno was all smiles. What a champ!

    It’s perhaps the most Scottish way possible to shut someone down — drown him out with bagpipes!

    A homophobic preacher, armed with a microphone, was in the Scottish town of St. Andrews, ranting about how same-sex marriage had “ruined the economy.” Enter bagpiper Daniel Boyle, who walked by the preacher and played out “Scotland the Brave” over the hate speech.

    Boyle walked over to him and followed him around, playing the entire time, much to the delight of the crowd.

    Well, that’s one way to tell someone to pipe down!

  • On your wedding day, you kind of expect things to go wrong, but you don't expect two bickering waiters to drop your wedding cake right in front of you!

    Newlywed Laura Cox was enjoying her wedding reception when suddenly a confrontation broke out between two waiters, and her four-tier wedding cake ended up on the floor.

    Luckily, the cake was a fake and the whole thing was an elaborate prank organized by her new husband, Joe.

    Joe hired two entertainers to pose as waiters and created a replica of the cake, covered in real icing, for the prank.

    "If I'm being completely honest, I was absolutely gobsmacked when it happened right before my eyes. All I could think about was how angry I was that people had been fighting on my own wedding day, they had ruined it," Laura told the Daily Mail.

    "I saw red and was about to storm outside and give them a piece of my mind, but then they ran back inside singing and I turned and saw Joe, who was laughing his head off. I realized I'd been well and truly

  • Tutto è impressionante!

    Ahead of Pope Francis’ visit next week, an elaborate replica of the Vatican is on display at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia — and it’s made entirely out of Legos.

    It took Rev. Bob Simon 10 months to construct the mini St. Peter’s Square.

    “I think there’s about half a million pieces in it,” he said. “I’m not sure. I think there are about 44,000 cobblestones of the square, 6,000 round bricks that make up the colonnade and, under the little cobblestones, there’s 12,000 two-by-two tiles that are under there. I knew if I was going to build the Vatican, it had to be big!”

    The Lego St. Peter’s Square is full of Swiss guards, tourists, a nun with a selfie stick and, of course, the pope overlooking the crowd. Simon also included a version of himself in the piazza, taking it all in.

    Simon’s masterpiece measures 14 feet by 6 feet and weighs about 100 pounds.

    “It was daunting,” said Simon. “It was an exercise in patience, and I was thrilled with the way everything came
