Anniversary Prank Backfires

Pranks. They are a (usually) harmless way to release some steam, and to cause a little surprise laugh in the process. We’ve seen some amazing pranks in the past: haunted elevators and most recently the Carrie coffee shop prank here in the West Village of NYC. While those are harmless pranks that are created with a bigger budget and more elaborate scenes, people pull cheaper ones that revolve around their family or friends. Take in point the most recent viral video: a man pranks his girlfriend on their fifth anniversary. He goes to tell her that he cheated on her (to get a rise out of her on the camera), but things take a turn for the worse… For him!

Channing Tatum’s Epic Split

The original video for Volvo Trucks stars action star Jean-Claude Van Damme where he does the splits between two reversing Volvo trucks. Van Damme calls it “the most epic of splits” – which in fact it is pretty dang epic – especially if the YouTube description is true and that it was “Filmed in Spain on a closed-off landing field at sunrise in one take.” (Emphasis added). And once again Channing Tatum is ready for a spoof video from the set of the “21 Jump Street” sequel “22 Jump Street”:

Kanye West – ‘Bound 2′ (NSFW)

As Kanye West continues his round of press tours, he follows in Drake’s footsteps and stops by Ellen to chat with Ms. DeGeneres in her comfy-looking chairs. During the show, Kanye premiered the video for the latest single from his unstopabble album Yeezus, “Bound 2,” which features Charlie Wilson on the hook and an old sample from a song called “Bound” from the soul group Ponderosa Twins Plus One.

For the video, however, it’s not quite as quaint. It’s classic Kanye — directed this time by Nick Knight — set against grand, surreal scenes of beauty and slow motion action. Ye and his new fiancée Kim Kardashian drive around on a motorcycle in front of some green screen nature settings while Ye just drops his verses, some of the more traditional ones that appeared on Yeezus. Spoiler: One of the two people starring this video are topless the entire time. Read more at Radio.com.

Twin Baby Bath

The Baby Spa is a new bathing approach. It was invented by Sonia Rochel, new born nurse (in Paris). It is the result of many years of observation and reflection. The video shows some marking moments of this caress-bathing : it actually lasts from 10 to 15 minutes. This bath is reserved for very small ones (up to about the age of 2 months). It is a real care, given by the specialized nurse who settled it. Nobody else uses this specific approach. Parents, beware : do not try to reproduce it!
