  • The Holderness family is back with a new video, and this time they aren’t celebrating Thanksgiving or running around in their Christmas jammies. This time, parents Penn and Kim Holderness are turning Internet hate into love.

    In a new parody video aptly named “Comments of Love,” the pair replaced the lyrics to “Seasons of Love” with actual YouTube and Facebook comments they’ve received, including "These people are so white, you can almost see through them," and “America stop encouraging this yuppie family”.

    “What do you do when people make mean comments? You sing them!” the family wrote on YouTube.

    YouTube users have been overwhelmingly positive in the comments section and are happy to see the family shaking off the hate.

    MiaWheatley writes, “This is so hilarious, way to not let the haters win, love it.”

    Kristi West comments, “Happiness is contagious! Way to turn the negatives into positives. It is what the world needs more of!”

  • On Saturday, the Pet’s Haven Animal Shelter near Melbourne posted a Facebook photo of a cute pup named Raffa and his newly adoptive dad, Ben Henderson. It was meant to bring attention the shelter’s open-adoption day, but Facebookers just couldn’t help but fall in love with Ben. The photo quickly took on a new life. There were thousands of likes and hundreds of comments from people asking where they could adopt Ben. One person added, “I'll adopt him…and the dog too.”
    And then, of course, a meme was born:

    The unexpected exposure might be behind the fact that 30 animals were adopted over the weekend from Pet’s Haven. And just to clear up any confusion on whether or not Ben is adoptable …  his fiancée, Alisha Howell, added a comment to the original post with a photo of her ring, along with the warning, “Sorry ladies he put a ring on it. Haha”
    What about Raffa? Well, Ben filled his fans in, writing, “The most important thing is the little guy is settling in nicely. Lucky I was working in

  • When mom’s away the owls will play.

    This adorable owl dance-off is brought to you by wildlife photographer Megan Lopez. Lopez left a GoPro in her front yard and captured the burrowing owls bouncing around.

    But this doesn’t make the video any less cute. Since it was posted on Feb. 7, it has gone viral with over 321,000 views, and YouTube commenters love the little critters.

    HighSpeedPhantom writes, “Seriously, I need a 10 minute version.”

  • When a young man came into a Raleigh, N.C., Target store to buy a clip-on tie for a Chick-fil-A job interview, he was told they were all out. Then, employee Dennis Roberts offered to show him how to tie a standard tie. Shopper Audrey Mark noticed the tie tutorial, snapped a picture and posted it to the store’s Facebook page. It’s been liked and shared thousands of times. The teen, whose name is still unknown, got more than just a lesson in fashion. Roberts offered some interview tips, too. He told ABC-11 that he instructed the teen to “make sure you look them in the eye” and “make sure you give them a stern handshake. … He tucked his shirt in and tied his shoes.”
    Audrey Mark said as the young man left the store, a few of the employees wished him luck and said “come back and tell us how it went.” The group from the store even went to Chick-fil-A to see if the teen landed the job, but the manager said he had not yet made a decision.

  • Mary had a little … dog?

    Meet Pet, a little lamb that grew up with four border collies and now thinks she’s one of them.

    Pet’s owner, Jemma Mackenzie, posted a series of adorable YouTube videos of the lamb trying to fit in with her dog buddies.

    “She thinks the oldest dog ... is her mother,” Mackenzie wrote on YouTube, “Sleeping in the same basket and following her everywhere from a very young age!”

    Mackenzie told the Daily Mail that Pet enjoys going on daily walks with the dogs and even tries to wag her tail.

    Unfortunately for Pet, the dogs have not really taken her in as one of their own. In the videos, they mostly just stare at her. But Pet is persistent as he tries to fit in with her adopted family. You do you Pet!
