The popularity of dubstep and the fruit ninja app has spawned this finest of video projects: Fruit Ninja in Real Life to Dubstep.


Though frankly, I don't know how much fruit that guy consumes. Granted, maybe that's the reason he's the Fruit Ninja. 


The video's broken 4 million views on YouTube, but we all know what was really trending on the day the world was supposed to end.


Athens, Georgia's own REM's It's The End Of The World, of course.

Fans of The Big Bang Theory, Carly Rae Jepsen and Call Me Maybe will appreciate this.


Viewed more than 13 million times in the four days since November 15, the cast and crew of CBS' The Big Bang Theory did their own version of Call Me Maybe during the taping of an upcoming episode. They're actually pretty coordinated.
