  • So, four dogs sit together in a Chinese kitchen. No, that is not the start of an awful joke, but rather the premise for a YouTube video with almost 90,000 views.

    The pets featured in the clip are a poodle, a yellow lab and two golden retrievers. All of the dogs sit in front of a bench as a woman in the background prepares their meal. Just before the food is placed in front of them, the woman instructs them to bow their heads. The animals obediently keep their heads lowered as she says a quick prayer. Once she concludes with "Amen," all of the dogs lift their heads and begin to eat.

    And they're are just getting started. When the dogs finish, they lick their bowls empty, pick them off the bench and hand them to the owner -- dogs that pray, eat and clean up after themselves.

    The video came from China, and naturally viewers are astounded by it.

    "I am dumb founded," Dennis Dougherty commented. "Bravo on you!!!!"

    Other people are simply calling the dogs "cute" or saying how the animals'

  • If you do not think the responsibilities of a mother comprise the "World's Toughest Job," a greeting card company is hoping to change that with its new viral video.

    American Greetings enlisted the help of Boston-based advertising agency Mullen for its Mother's Day campaign this year. The company started the project just before Christmas break last year.


    "One of our writers went home to Michigan to be with her family," recalled Jon Ruby, vice president and creative director at Mullen. "She spent quite a bit of time with her brother and sister-in-law. She does not have kids, but they do. In watching them, she saw how they interacted with the kids. Her sister-in-law was on her feet 24/7 and never stopped working.

    "When she came back, she said being a mom is really the world's toughest job."

    There were 10 to 15 ideas for this project, but the idea of treating the job of a mother as a real profession "jumped off the page" to Ruby. The advertising agency posted a

  • The evolution of portable music players dates back to 1979, when Sony created the first Walkman. The name of the device alone might elicit memories of your first cassette purchase or a former workout routine. After all, according to Time, the number of people who said they walked for exercise increased by 30 percent between 1987 and 1997.


    Walkman players now seem ancient by almost any standard; the last cassette version we could find was made in 2003. Sony carried the franchise into portable CD and MP3 players, but eventually Apple and other phone manufacturers took over the market. Fast-forward to 2014, and there is now a whole generation of kids who have no recollection of or association with the term.

    That leads us to a video uploaded on Sunday by the Fine Brothers. Benny and Rafi Fine are known on YouTube for their "Kids React" series. They film children reacting to pop culture and news items both past and present. Some of the most popular clips include

  • Time-lapse videos that involve inanimate objects can pique curiosity. But those clips that involve humans, or rather a single human, always seem to gain a lot of popularity on the Internet.

    Such is the case for a video uploaded last Thursday by Dutch filmmaker Frans Hofmeester. His YouTube post is titled "Portrait of Lotte - 0 to 14 years in 4 min." In the clip, Hofmeester's daughter Lotte grows up before our very eyes.


    "I filmed my daughter every week, from birth up until she turned 14 years old [and] then made this time lapse edit," the filmmaker wrote in the video's description. It is currently closing in on a million views.

    The time-lapse begins when Lotte is a baby, and spends the first 25 seconds on clips from the first year of her life. Lotte is moving in most of the clips, either laughing or talking to her dad off-camera. At 2 minutes and 10 seconds, Hofmeester switches to a more full-color look, as we see Lotte change hairstyles, switch between

  • You walk into your mother's house, and her dog is stuck in the sleeve of a heavy winter coat. Do you immediately help him out or film the moment for your friends (and many others) to laugh at?

    In the case of Matt Rundquist, he chose the latter when he stumbled upon his mom's dachshund, Traif.

    "I rang the doorbell, which made Traif forget he was stuck in a coat and he began to bark his little head off!" Rundquist told Storyful.

    Thanks to Rundquist's quick thinking, YouTube is graced with a 22-second clip of Traif bobbing up and down in the coat's sleeve. Another dog wags their tail in the background as the madness ensues.

    The video ends right as the pet gets a little too close for comfort to the bottom step of the house's staircase. Poor Traif almost hit his head against the wood.

    Commenters on YouTube find the clip hysterical. Joyce Donahue wrote, "Excuse me, your coat is barking!" Malorie Sponseller sarcastically opined, "Best guard dog ever!" The video just went online Sunday and
