You might think you’ve seen it all when it comes to daring art pieces, but you have to check out these masterpieces, which are unlike anything you have ever viewed before. Artist Insa combines graffiti artwork and GIFs that can only be seen online. He calls it GIF-iti. Here’s how he does it: He paints an already cool mural on a wall, photographs it, then repaints a slightly different mural on the same wall and photographs it again. Then, through the power of the GIF, it comes to life! If you think those look incredible, Insa took to the skies to create his most epic GIF-iti to date. He painted his trademark “Looking for Love” murals on the ground in Rio de Janeiro, and the outcome is the world’s largest GIF! This is actually satellite imagery taken from 431 miles above the Earth. You can take a look at how a team of 20 went to work to make the out-of-this-world GIF-iti happen in this YouTube video. His inspiration to flip the script on traditional art is simple. He says, “The Internet Read More »from Artist combines GIFs and graffiti for ultimate masterpiece that is best appreciated online
A news report out of London has gone viral and not for the story being reported. As she was live from the St. Pancras station talking about the Eurotunnel closure that left thousands stranded, ITV correspondent Ria Chatterjee had no idea what was going on behind her at first. As she commented on the chaos of the closure, a pedestrian was struck by a moped in the distance right on live TV. Chatterjee realized there was commotion behind and her quickly threw back to the anchor in the newsroom. The cameraman filled her in on the accident that had just taken place.

UPDATE: Multiple sources are reporting the QVC host featured in this video is Shawn Killinger and not Jane Treacy
QVC shopping channel host Shawn Killinger and designer Isaac Mizrahi found themselves in a heated discussion — not about spring fashion trends but whether or not the moon is a planet.
It all started with Killinger's comment about one of Mizrahi’s sweaters, “It kind of looks like what the Earth looks like when you're a bazillion miles away from the planet Moon.”
“The planet Moon…” replied Mizrahi.
“From the planet Moon?… From the moon,” Killinger said. “Isn’t the moon a star?”
Needless to say, the segment was all downhill from there.

The two continued to discuss whether or not the moon was a planet or a star. But we’ll just end the debate right here. According to NASA, the moon is classified as neither a star nor a planet, but rather as the Earth’s satellite. Thank you QVC for this teachable moment.

So he did what any karaoke all-star would do. He silenced the man with a childhood classic, “(I’ve Got a) Golden Ticket” from “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.” Read More »from NYC subway rider shuts down hateful ranter with the help of Willy Wonka
Maiale spoke to Yahoo News about what made him spring into action. He said the man was asking a lesbian couple on the train how they would tell their children they were “living in sin and are going to go to hell?” Maiale said. “When he was just ranting, it was irksome, but I let it slide. When he began picking people out, and I saw how uncomfortable they were, I decided I wasn’t going to let him speak anymore.” And as for his choice of song, Maiale told us it was one of his favorite childhood songs, and that in the moment, it felt like the perfect antithesis to the messages the man was preaching. He said, “It’s a song about joy, about
