Doesn't everyone love the classic "long pass over the middle, ball stripped, defense recovers, receiver strips ball from fumble returner, then returns the second fumble for a touchdown" play?

 

Apparently Sacred Heart does.

Remember that time the Ohio State marching band was featured in this space for its video game halftime show? It's back. 

 

On Saturday, the band did a show featuring movie music, and animated it. Superman flies out of a phone booth to prevent a building collapse. The Lord of the Rings eye. Harry Potter flies on a broom. Dinosaur from Jurassic Park eats some guy.

The point of view video from the Red Bull Stratos jump was released recently, and it's pretty awesome.

You won't be the first to see it, but a video of a firefighter saving a kitten's life with an oxygen mask has reached more than 12 million views in four days.

 

It's pretty cool. Seems from the comments I'm the only person that didn't cry, but, ok... now I'm crying. There it went.

If one of your life's ambitions is to ride the skies on the back of an eagle, definitely watch this video. 

 

Otherwise, how would you know what to expect when it happens for real?

There have been nearly 2.25 million views of a video encouraging people to donate $1.6 trillion to fund World War 3. Apparently because Obama says so.

It seems the world has judged the new Robocop trailer worthy of being viewed 15 million times in seven days. Judge for yourself. Just don't stand in his way.

An advertisement for an LG HDTV features job applicants walking into an office, only to see a massive meteor crashing into the city through an 84-inch "window" behind the boss. 

The reactions, while understandable, are hilarious.
