  • Chameleons are best known for being able to adapt their colors to their environment. But did you know they can also change into professional bowlers? Well, sort of. In a new video on YouTube, two players went head-to-head to be crowned king bowling chameleon. A bug was carefully placed near the pins to give the animals an incentive to play. Using their super sticky tongues, the chameleons reached for the bug and knocked pins over in the process.

    The video comes from the geniuses at Hello Denizen — you probably know them best for their viral video “Tiny Hamsters Eating Tiny Burritos.” They make a special note on the video that “no visual or special effects were used, everything you see on screen is real.” A few YouTube commenters are upset that the bug was not placed in the same spot every time. Really, people? This isn’t the Olympics; it’s chameleon bowling. Anything goes!

    Move over Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson: There are new wedding crashers in town.

    Adam Levine and his Maroon 5 bandmates took wedding crashing to a new level when they surprised several brides and grooms on their big day with a performance.

    A rep from Maroon 5 said only the grooms knew about the performance — a risky move for a new husband!

    The stunt was captured for the band’s new music video “Sugar” and was directed by — you guessed it — “Wedding Crashers” director David Dobkin.

    “It was an out-of-body experience,” Levine said in a statement. “I had no idea I would be affected by the overwhelming reactions we received from the couples and guests. Being able to create an unforgettable experience for several people was the highlight of it all.”

  • The hottest ticket in California at the end of February may not be for the Oscars. It just might be this invitation to a toddler’s first birthday party.
    Calvin Le came up with the ultimate way to invite friends and family to his almost 1-year-old son Evan’s big bash on Feb. 21. He included an electric dance music (aka EDM) video for the event’s private Facebook invitation. The video features little Evan playing the role of DJ, sporting cool headphones while he’s working the turntable.

    “The equipment is part of a video game called DJ Hero.” Calvin told Yahoo News. “I am totally into the EDM scene. Evan started playing with the equipment, and I thought maybe I could film this and include it in our Facebook invite.” Friends enjoyed the video so much that they encouraged Calvin to post it to YouTube.
    Calvin might have a leg up in the video production game; he owns Calvin Le Films in San Francisco, which specializes in wedding videography.

  • It’s a classic tale of a puppy whose bark is definitely worse than his bite.
    In a new viral video, an 8-week-old bulldog named Humphrey attempts to take on his greatest foe to date — a plastic water bottle. This little guy pulls out his best moves to challenge his new mortal enemy, including relentless barking and a sneak attack.
    Alas, Humphrey does not defeat the water bottle in the end, but he has received a lot of positive comments from YouTube users.
    Dean Thomas writes, “i am reporting this to youtube for being too adorable.”
    And Oscar Hildebrand comments, “36 seconds of Adorable !!!”
    But perhaps the best comment of them all came from the water bottle’s manufacturer, Cool Ridge: “Hydration is nothing to be scared of little canine friend. Hopefully this is just a phase you grow out of - Cool Ridge HQ.”

    “Je suis Charlie.” By now, if you have been watching TV or browsing the Internet, you have heard that phrase in support of free speech and empathy for the victims of the shootings in Paris. But while all eyes were on last week’s terror attacks in France, another crisis was unfolding in Africa, one that you might not have even heard about. And now people on social media are trying to change that.
    The hashtag campaign #PrayForNigeria launched to bring attention to deadly attacks in Nigeria by Boko Haram.
    Up to 2,000 Nigerians were killed when the Islamist militant group stormed the town of Baga with explosives and assault rifles last week.
    Amnesty International has called the attack the group’s “deadliest massacre” to date.
    As with many tragedies, people have taken to Twitter to bring attention to the events in Nigeria. Terrorism analyst Max Abrahms tweeted: “it’s shameful how the 2k people killed in boko haram’s biggest massacre gets almost no media coverage.”
