You've got to be able to really keep your cool under pressure when you're flying a huge hunk of aluminum thousands of feet above the ground. This student pilot was served the ultimate test when his engine suddenly failed and he was forced to asses the options and choose a landing spot within seconds. Luckily, the young pilot passed with flying colors.

Lil Nas X Flexes His Comedy Skills in Video Satirizing Nike 'Satan Shoes' Controversy

How is it that Lil Nas X has sharper comedic timing while playing four different characters in a two-minute clip than most crappy massive-budget Hollywood comedies that come out these days? The young rapper can simply do no wrong, even when he's simultaneously committing heresy and copyright infringement. If you have no idea what we're talking about, let's bring you up to speed. In March, Lil Nas X launched a highly controversial pair of 'Satan Shoes' adorned with pentagrams and human blood. The shoes looked a whole lot like Nike's Air Max 97s, which caused the footwear behemoth to file a copyright infringement lawsuit against the bold rapper. On top of the legal dispute, religious zealots unsurprisingly showed up with their pitchforks. None of this discouraged Lil Nas X. In fact, he responded by trolling his haters with a fake 'apology video' that ends in the rapper seducing, killing and taking the place of the devil. On March 27, Lil Nas X tweeted, 'I spent my entire teenage years hating myself because of the sh*t y'all preached would happen to me because I was gay. So I hope u are mad, stay mad, feel the same anger you teach us to have towards ourselves.'

All of this puts Lil Nas X's latest antics into context—a satirical video promoting his new Kanye-produced single 'Industry Baby.' In the brilliant video, Lil Nas X plays himself, his attorney, the prosecutor and the judge.

Since the video was posted, fans have overwhelmingly applauded Lil Nas X's unparalleled marketing instincts. From 'Old Town Road' to his bizarre and demonic Nike spinoffs—the guy has a knack for breaking the internet. We can't wait to see where the 22-year-old artist takes us next.

Unfreeze Your Heart With This Video Of A Dude And His Emotional Support Gator

We know life has felt thankless for a lot of people lately, and we can't blame them. The world is extra messed up right now. But every now and then something comes along to remind us that there's still some good shit happening that deserves to be celebrated. 67 year old Joie Henry and his emotional support alligator  are today's source of happiness. After Henry lost 3 family members and 4 close friends in the span of two weeks, he was understandably crippled by severe depression. In lieu of using antidepressants, he contacted a friend who rescues alligators who gave him Wally, his emotional support gator. 

Having a carnivorous reptile as a support animal might seem a little insane, but these videos show a loving relationship between man and gator that, while unexpected, warms our cold, cold hearts - and the hearts of many others. 

Wholesome video about Joie Henry of Pennsylvania and his emotional support alligator, Wally. Happy things

Marvel At This Money Shot of a Plane Dumping Fish Into a Lake

The phrase "You learn something new every day" is widely attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson, and we have really got to give Twitter some props for bringing an insane amount of truth to those words. It feels like every time we log onto the bird app, we learn something horrible, interesting, or altogether puzzling. Fortunately, today's learning moment falls into the "interesting" category, and involves a plane dumping a buttload of fish into a beautiful Utah lake. 

The video comes to us from Kansas City's KCTV5 Twitter account (and Reuters), who shared the footage of the "aerial restocking" with the assurance that the "survival of aerial-stocked fish is incredibly high." Restocking lakes with native species is important, but some lakes aren't reachable by car. That's where planes come in.

 Knowing that most fish were not harmed in this process allows us to truly appreciate the insanity of what looks like the plane diarrhea-ing into pristine wilderness waters. We're not the only appreciators of this crazy video. The clip went viral pretty quickly, inspiring awestruck reactions, concern, and, of course, jokes on Twitter. While some were better than others, we're just glad to see this phenomenon in video form. Here's hoping some of the fishies get to enjoy their new homes before finding themselves on the end of a hook.

Drunken Dumpling Thieves Caught on Camera Raiding Popular Noodle Spot

After discovering that the electronic lock of Xi'an Famous Foods had malfunctioned due to a power failure, two drunk Chelsea girls noodled their way in for a late-night snack. Surveillance footage shared by restaurant owner Jason Wang shows the hungry drunkards plotting to cook dumplings and lamb noodles with little success. The young woman in Gucci shoes drops a couple of frozen dumplings into cold water and attempts to 'fry' them, while the other keeps watch at the front of the shop.

After some lively drunken banter, the two start to get nervous and give up on their culinary pursuits. Gucci girl stuffs the frozen dumplings into her bag and they split. The following day, Xi'an Famous Foods posted the footage and a statement to Facebook, urging the young women to come forward and apologize. Despite having lost a day of business and a bag of dumplings, Jason Wang decided not to file a police report. Instead, he hopes that the dumpling thieves will do the right thing on their own. Good on Xi'an for having a sense of humor about the whole thing.

Woman Applies For Job In Beauty Boutique, Outs The Owner After They Accidentally Send Her Insulting Email

There are few parts of life that suck more than job searching. As if finessing your resume and prepping for endless rejections wasn't torture enough, you have to submit yourself to the judgment of managerial jerks who decide whether you get to pay rent this month or not. 

In a TikTok posted on Thursday, Gracie Lorincz explained how she had applied to be a brand representative for Ava Lane Boutique and had been accidentally cc'd into an email from the company's VP, Chuck DeGrendel. In it, he questions if his colleague is sure he should interview her as she is "not that cute". 

Her outing of the unflattering interaction soon went viral, leading to people bombarding their Instagram and Google Play with negative comments and reviews. It led to a tearful public apology from DeGrendel on Facebook Live, where he claimed his family's contact details had been shared and that they had even received death threats. 

Although it's not illegal to discriminate against a job applicant based on their perceived attractiveness, it definitely leaves a bad taste to think that employers can choose to be this shallow. However, such a dramatic mass response probably wasn't that helpful for how Lorincz felt about herself, or encouraging Ava Lane to change their hiring practices. Social media is a powerful tool for change, but sometimes that change doesn't happen in the most productive of ways.

New Yorkers Wade Through Literal Cesspools to Catch the Train

Leaving the house ten years ago: Keys. Wallet. Phone.
Leaving the house in 2021: Keys. Wallet. Phone. Face mask. Hand sanitizer. Life vest. Canoe. Tetanus shot.

As Hurricane Elsa puts NYC's crumbling infrastructure to the test, New Yorkers are wading through toxic subterranean pools and flooded boroughs to get to point B. In a number of viral videos captured by people at the 157th Street subway station last night, commuters are seen attempting to protect themselves from the filthy water using trash bags, without much success. Above ground wasn't much prettier for those trying to get through actual rivers of traffic. Many turned to Twitter to express concern and criticism toward MTA and the city. New Yorkers haven't forgotten Hurricane Sandy and they certainly don't want to experience the sequel.

While the world watched as Pemex snuffed out a terrifying hell-vortex of fire in the middle of the ocean, many might have missed another notable extinguishing event over the weekend. A 53-year-old woman was arrested on July 4th for attempting to annihilate the olympic flame. In a video recording of the incident, the indignant vigilante waits among a packed crowd in Mito, Japan. When the torchbearer passes, she pulls out her concealed water gun and squirts point-blank at the Olympic flame as she cries 'stop the games!' and 'end the Olympics!' According to NHK, the protester wanted to send a message, believing it was irresponsible of the government to hold the games amid a pandemic.

Tom MacDonald has broken the internet again with his latest viral anti-woke anthem, 'Snowflakes.' Last month MacDonald bought Eminem's NFT beat for $100K and turned it into his own ode to the rap icon from the perspective of the infamous 'Stan' character. A pretty expensive stunt just to become a viral sensation, but hey, it worked. Now the 32-year-old is making his mark as 2021's most provocative rapper, perhaps in an effort to actually become the next Eminem. 

You know who hates America the most? Americans. 
Trigger warnings used to be on TV for seizures 
And now they're everywhere to protect millennials' feelings

It's difficult to tell whether he's succeeded in 'owning the libs' with his spicy bars, or if his haters are mostly just offended by how bad the track is. Whether you're genuinely triggered or ironically delighted by MacDonald's epic anti-woke summer jam, you've got to admit—the man knows how to go viral.

Adam Sandler Impresses Twitter After Pickup Basketball Game Goes Viral

Adam Sandler's seen quite a comeback in the meme department since starring in the Safdie Brothers' Uncut Gems. While our old millennial asses revere him for his roles in his Happy Madison productions, the SNL alum has proved that his star power goes far beyond goofiness. That star power has led to the actor becoming viral for some pretty normal moments. Just a few weeks ago, a TikTok user went viral after realizing she had turned Sandler away from her IHOP, saying that the wait for a table would be 30 minutes. This week, the internet is marveling at something a little more attention-worthy: his apparent love for pickup basketball games. 


After Anthony Puccio shared a friend's Instagram story of Sandler playing a game of pickup basketball in Long Island, Twitter had a lot to say about the matter. Many users were appalled at the lack of reciprocity between Sandler and his teammates. The star was absolutely destroying it on the court, but the same could not be said for his temporary squad. A second video from the same day didn't help their case. There's no denying it. Adam Sandler was let down.

While much of the focus was on the comedian's skills, some Twitter users decided to poke fun at his attire. The baggy clothes, which are actually par for the course with Sandler, honestly make the out-of-place actor look that much more impressive in this context. If you're getting schooled by a 54 year old Jewish guy from Brooklyn in an oversized peach polo, you should probably be questioning the caliber of your game.

Gas Shortage Inspires Rumors of Bagged Gasoline & Roasty Tweets

If you're at all connected to what's going on in the world, you're probably aware that many people in the United States seem to be worried about a gas shortage. Here in New York, the last time we had a gas shortage (after Hurricane Sandy) was pretty debilitating. Lines of cars sometimes went for miles, filled with worried and agitated drivers - and then, of course, there were the ones who had to find a way to navigate around them. This time it's not a natural disaster that's causing mayhem. This gas panic is a direct result of last week's cyberattack on Colonial Pipeline, a major pipeline that provides gas along much of the East Coast, and all the way to Houston. 

Colonial Pipeline announced today that they've restarted their pipeline system and have resumed deliveries, but that can't undo the panic and the memes its inspired. The ransomwear attack influenced hordes of frantic drivers in the Southeast to stockpile gasoline in whatever containers they had available - a move that evoked the country's toilet paper crisis from the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis. While several photos and videos of people stockpiling gasoline in unorthodox containers have been flying around, none have faced as much ridicule as a photo and video of people attempting to collect gasoline in plastic bags. 



Though both the photograph and the video are real, neither of them were taken in the last week. In the trunk? Gasoline that two men had attempted to steal, not in the United States, but in the Mexican state of Puebla. The video was taken in December of 2019, and according to Snopes, it depicts a woman doing some weird sh*t in Houston, Texas. Despite the misconceptions, people on Twitter have been eating up the idea that people around the country are filling up bags with gas. It even got so bad that the US Consumer Product Safety Safety Commission published a thread urging citizens not to horde gas in this unique manner. Even more entertaining than the thread (which should not exist) are the roasty tweets that users are firing out left and right. We know it's kind of shitty to make fun of people who might have a screw loose, but god, we can't help but enjoy the spicy savagery.

There are millions of proposal videos out there that showcase some of the most insane ideas from madlads who have a taste for spectacle. @higbogg had a pretty subtle approach and decided to stick the engagement ring into a KFC biscuit because...why not? We're glad he captured the moment on TikTok because his girlfriend's reaction was absolutely priceless. The video has gone so viral that even KFC has congratulated the couple. Who knows, maybe this was all just a ploy to get KFC to cater their wedding.
