    Street performer Ammar Dafri, who goes by Power Beat, was in the middle of his beat-boxing harmonic routine when all of a sudden, a woman walking her dog crashed his performance.

    Much to the enjoyment of the crowd, the woman started dancing along to the music.

  • Are you obsessed with your smartphone? If you’re like most Americans, there’s a good chance the answer to that question is yes. Staring down at our mobile devices is something we have become used to as a society, and now there’s a rap anthem to really highlight that growing problem.  
    The video comes to us from YouTube parody singers Key of Awesome, starring Todd Womack, and it already has more than 282,000 views.  

    “Stare into the screen, look at your phone. It’s everything you need, look at your phone. So much better than a friend, look at your phone.”

    One YouTube commenter summed it up nicely by writing, “One of the greatest love stories of our time.” The catchy song will probably get stuck in your head, and if you can’t get enough of it, you can buy it on iTunes!

  • One man in Minneapolis has a new hat, and he’s trying desperately to make sure you know about it.

    Curt Oren, a quirky 23-year-old musician, has always used humor to express his fashion — including the time he got his face printed on a T-shirt. But once he bought a new hat that read “Curt’s New Hat,” he knew he had to up his game and let the world know. He started by changing his name on Facebook to New Hat. Up next, he had to pimp his ride with a “New Hat” license plate.

    And as if that wasn’t enough dedication to spreading the new hat awareness, Curt purchased a billboard that reads, “Do you know about Curt’s new hat?

    It’s possible that his hat tricks are not all fun and games, though. Curt’s friends set up a donation site that’s listed on the billboard. According to the site, “A vast majority of the donations will go to fund the Curt Oren Memorial Institute for Comedic Safety, a division of Public Space One, an Iowa City non-profit arts organization. The remainder of the donations will

  • Raising kids is always an adventure, but what happens if your children also have superpowers?

    Daniel Hashimoto, the mastermind behind the YouTube channel Action Movie Kid, teamed up with YouTube’s Field Day channel to create a new video featuring the superkid family.

    Hashimoto — or, as he is known in the series, Action Movie Dad — is a DreamWorks animator who has been making Action Movie Kid videos for about a year now. But his latest video is the first to feature baby Sophia, Action Movie Kids’ powerful little sister.

    The short film also introduces a new villain from the Alpha Tots Academy. And the villain is played by none other than Brian Baumgartner, most famous for playing Kevin Malone on The Office.

    We hope they consider making the sequel into a feature-length film!

  • People are showing some leg on social media in solidarity for a girl who was banned from taking a law exam in Algeria because her skirt was too short.

    The dean of the University of Algiers’ Faculty of Law stands by the decision. He told news website TSA Algérie, “Wearing a short skirt is not authorized inside the university. It’s their job to uphold the rules of the faculty. It requires a decent outfit, for both girls and boys.”

    Angered by the university’s decision, a fellow student, Sophia Jama, created a Facebook page, the name of which roughly translates to, “My dignity is not in the length of my skirt.”

    Sophia invited people to post pictures of their bare legs — leg selfies if you will — to protest the school’s ban and dress code.

    “Setting up this Facebook page was like a reflex for me,” Jama told France24. “What happened to the young girl is very tough. She was humiliated, and I didn’t want her to feel alone. It’s also a way of supporting those women who have already had similar
