Top five viral videos for the week of October 14

Have you got moves like Jabba? Let's hope not.

You know it’s Friday afternoon when you are trawling YouTube for funny videos. Well look no further
as Metro has you covered with the top five YouTube video’s of the week. 

They say never to work with children or animals, but Ellen clearly didn’t listen as she takes on both in the form of one small child. This British toddler is insane. After her YouTube performance of Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” went viral, Ellen decided introduce the young girl to her idol. Whether you you love it or you hate it, it is definitely the best of the week! Take a look and see what happened.

Trailer recutss are some of our favorite things, so it’s no surprise we would love an alternate universe version of the classic ’80s romantic comedy “Splash” as a political thriller. It’s all in fun, but we are serious: Bring on the political remake!

Not long to Thanksgiving now but what’s this? A turkey turning the tables! A dangerous turkey is on the loose and attacking poor defenseless women with video cameras. I hope this turkey movement doesn’t catch on, or else what will we be eating for Thanksgiving? 

The words “Ira Glass” and “sex tape” don’t really go well together, do they? Well that’s exactly what two comedians wanted to establish in this satirical look at sex tapes. Unfortunately, it’s a slightly nauseating one, especially with the bad mental pictures that the idea of Ira Glass and Terry Gross fornicating provokes.

Star Wars fans, block your ears. You might not like the final video on the list. This Maroon 5 parody is a sci-fi comedy entitled “Moves like Jabba”. I think I prefer to watch Jagger’s moves but a bit of light Friday afternoon fun never hurt anyone.
