  • In a video promoting Nike shoes,  break beat music from duo HIFANA (composed of KEIZOmachine and JUICY)  set up and hooked up mixers and sound systems to Nike Free Run+ shoes.

    Of course,  the actual Nike Free Run+ shoes can't produce music when bent, but the sounds are cool all the same.


  • A YouTube video depicting a single mother searching for the father of her child -- after meeting and spending a night together while the man was on vacation -- caused such a media storm after being seen by millions that te original video was pulled.

    The woman, Karen, says:

    "I'm doing this because I'm trying to find August's father. I don’t remember where you're from, I don't even remember your name. We ended up having sex .. the next morning when I woke up, you were gone."

    In fact, it was a hoax created by the Danish government’s tourism agency, VisitDenmark.

  • The Hawaii Chair promises to "take the work out of your workout" for a "slimmer, sexier you."

    The viral video reached over 3.5 million hits after the chair's eye-opening demonstration. Who says you can't tone-up and be productive at the same time?
