  • The death of Alex Sheen's father inspired him to create the online campaign called "because I said I would." His mission is to make good on promises to others, just as his dad had before he died from cancer in 2012.

    Almost two years later, Sheen is still honoring the lives of others and making good on promises. His most recent cause is preventing others from drinking and driving, and he carried out the mission in the most literal sense.

    Sheen's connection to preventing drunken drivers dates back to June 22, 2013. That night, Matthew Cordle was operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol. He crashed into a Jeep driven by 61-year-old Vincent Canzani and killed him. According to an article published in March on BuzzFeed, Cordle's blood alcohol level was double the legal limit for the state of Ohio. When authorities asked him what had happened, Cordle didn't even realize he had been driving, let alone in an accident.

    Instead of taking legal advice offered to him in order to escape

  • A video that has been shared almost 400,000 times on Facebookis proving that maybe Dobermans aren't so bad after all.

    Jessica Manning lives in Comox, British Columbia, Canada. Manning works with a Doberman rescue organization to raise awareness about the breed. She also owns at least one of the dogs; his name is Bishop, and he is featured in a video she posted to her profile.

    "The dog is a prince and sometimes an evil genius," said Manning of her Doberman. She also made a somewhat sarcastic comment about her cat, Sophie, which Manning adopted after someone abandoned the kitten at a gas station. Regarding her viral video, Manning notes that she "can't imagine why" Sophie was left behind.

    Sophie spends the entire 1:17 of the clip antagonizing Bishop. That's correct: a small cat attempting to terrorize a much larger, supposedly aggressive Doberman.

    The cat lunges and claws at the dog. Sophie even connects with Bishop's face a few times. But the dog is impervious to her taunts: He

  • What could make the classic movie "Jurassic Park" more interesting? Perhaps the answer lies within a video that a person uploaded, of his dog.

    YouTube user Blake Everhart knows a thing or two about cameras and editing. His YouTube channel, "alienufosarereal" is filled with various scenes he's filmed, including his reel. After watching these clips, you might not be surprised that he was able to insert his dog into a scene from "Jurassic Park."

    Everhart used a 15-second clip from the 1993 blockbuster. As Drs. Grant and Sattler feast their eyes on what was originally their first glimpse of dinosaurs, their gaze is instead directed at a 50-foot tall bulldog. That dog's name is Wally, and a shot of him jumping up and down in slow motion is imposed into the movie with the help of computer graphics.

    "Pugosaurus Rex," "Jurassic Bark," and any other dog-dinosaur pun you can think of are being thrown around in the YouTube comments section. Everhart uploaded the video on Tuesday, and it currently

  • Your case of the Mondays is about to vanish after watching an adorable video of a baby discovering that he can move his eyebrows.

    Lucas MacEochaidh uploaded the clip of his nephew, Leon, to YouTube on Friday, and in just 45 seconds, this delightful baby boy is melting hearts across the Internet.

    In the video, Lucas, his sister, Rebecca, and her baby, Leon, are standing in the bathroom. The baby looks at the phone and then glances in the mirror. Then, Leon raises his eyebrows to offer a surprised expression. He is cracked up by the fact that he is able to make a funny face by lifting his eyebrows, and he begins laughing hysterically.

    He repeats the process several times over and is equally enthused every time he raises his eyebrows, and his family seems to be getting a kick out of it too.

    "Baby Leon discovers his eyebrows" is at 477,000 views online and is quickly climbing toward a half million hits. Cute, fantastic, and priceless are adjectives that commenters are using to describe the

  • Video of Swan Attack Adapted Into 'Game of Thrones' Ad

    An on-demand streaming service in the U.K. has altered a video of swans attacking a golfer and converted it into an ad for the hit HBO show "Game of Thrones."

    Blinkbox, which offers users the ability to rent or buy movies and TV shows through various entertainment consoles, is offering a special for customers who buy Season 4 of "Game of Thrones." To promote the sale, the company's creative team turned to YouTube and found inspiration in a video uploaded this past February.

    In the original clip (Warning: Profanity), which was published by YouTube user mally1640, the man filming and his friend, Stan, are golfing at Grimsby Golf Club in England. Stan is attempting to play his ball when two swans approach him. Hilarity ensues as the swans chase Stan away from the water, only allowing him to retreat back to the ball a minute later.

    "I wish I had kept filming as he put his ball straight in the pond, then the swans went for him again over the bridge," YouTube user mally1640 wrote in the
