Top five viral videos for the week of October 24

Don't be frightened -- this tank is actually just a chihuahua!

Happy Friday everyone (and happy Halloween for Monday!) Another Friday
has come and gone, so to farewell the week that was here are the top
five viral videos from this week. Enjoy!

The ’80s have given us so much amusement over the years and this 1989 McDonald’s ad is no exception. With lines such as “Daddy’s bringing home the BBQ” and beautiful close up shots of those “sassy” sauce’d McRibs, who could refuse? Hey, we’re only human. 

It is a truth universally acknowledged that whenever people are dressing their dogs up or otherwise doing something crazy tp their pooch, that the dog in question is always a chihuhua. Seriously, why though? Number two this week is a perfect example of another poor chihuahua strapped into a tank costume to go for a walk. What the what?

Who knew that owls could be so cute? Clearly from this video we shouldn’t let their claws and sharp beak fool us. It seems that all pygmy owls are looking for is a little TLC.

Scary good lighting, buddy! How someone finds the time to rig up such an elaborate Halloween lighting display, we don’t know, but this is perfect for those who want to skip the hard work and watch the “Nightmare Before Christmas” theme display to get in the spooky spirit. Cheers!

Oh man! This is like watching your drunk aunt at Christmas trying to dance. Robyn, girl, you need to call your choreographer, or at least to sober up, before you go on stage to dance on the Ellen Show. To be fair, though, we think anyone would struggle in those shoes. Who can boogie with bricks on their feet?
