  • 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

  • At the end of every Trending Now episode, we ask for your feedback or submissions regarding the story that we are covering. On Wednesday, one of our stories was about Kai-Xiang Xhong. The 20-year-old Taiwanese student takes cardboard boxes and transforms them into works of art. His latest piece was Tony Stark's Iron Man costume constructed completely from cardboard.

    Xhong's work was well-received. Comments on our blog included, "Looks like someone has a future in the movie industry. This is how talent is found nowadays." Another reader wrote, "This guy is unbelievably talented." The project took the student a year to complete.

    On our Facebook page, users submitted photos of costumes and sculptures they created, and we felt compelled to share a few.

    Brian Nelson posted a photo of his homemade Optimus Prime costume. Nelson used cardboard, foam pool noodles, a baseball helmet, hockey gloves and duct tape. The costume's chest opened up to reveal that it was filled with candy. Once the

  • As someone who was adopted, Katheryn Deprill knew that a part of her was missing. She could never have imagined that she would have so much in common with that missing link.

    Deprill first made headlines in 1986, when she was abandoned in a Burger King restaurant in Pennsylvania just a few hours after her birth. Last month, the Allentown, Pa., native returned to the news when she posted a Facebook message in hopes of finding her biological mother.

    "Looking for my birth mother. She gave birth to me September 15th, 1986," a note she held in the photo read. "She abandoned me in the Burger King bathroom only hours old, Allentown PA. Please help me find her by sharing my post. Maybe she will see this."

    Cathy Pochek and her husband did see it and immediately contacted their lawyer to coordinate a meeting. Yesterday, the two appeared for the first time in public on the "Today" show.

    The 44-year-old mother shed light on why she abandoned her daughter in such a hasty fashion. Pochek said she

  • The popularity of the HBO series "Game of Thrones" has transcended to viral videos involving animals. In 2012, a video was uploaded to YouTube of a cat meowing the show's theme song. With the show now back for its third season, we have a compilation of goats bleating to the theme song.

    Spanish comedy site Marca Blanca produced the video, titled "GAME OF GOATS (Game of Thrones Goat Version) #GOaT." Get it? G-O-T and G-O-A-T. Anyway, the mash up stars the Internet's most famous goats and a few sheep. All of the clips are edited to sound like each animal is bleating a different part of the song. Marca Blanca used the show's actual open to start the video and put the theme in there to back the goats. The clip ends with a custom "Game of Goats" graphic.

    Goats and sheep that bleat like humans plus "Game of Thrones" clearly equals an Internet home run. The video, which was uploaded on Wednesday, already has over 1.1 million views. Maybe you are thinking, "You have goat to be kidding me,
