This week in videos: Nitrogen pool party, unruly airline passenger and Wu-Tang sign language

In case you missed this week’s best videos, here’s a recap. Happy watching!

Oh, no big deal, it’s just a monkey buying himself a juice from a vending machine and remembering to return the change. Aki the Capuchin monkey from Nihonmatsu, Japan inserts his coins into the vending machine, then bangs on it until a beverage is released. The monkey returns the change from the coin slot, and goes on to enjoy his drink.

 

 

The people at Red Bull were able to produce this amazing video of Canadian BMX Rider Drew Bezanson perform some of the best tricks we have seen in awhile. He is from Ontario Canada and has already blessed the Internet with several ground-breaking videos. In this latest video he showcases his skills by performing creative and mind-blowing bike tricks that takes his craft to the next level. Kids, don’t try this at home.

 

 

We thought contestants for Miss USA had brains and beauty. Last night, Utah’s answer to a judge’s question proved only one of those to be true. The raven-haired beauty Marissa Powell made it pretty far in the competition, coming in as third runner-up. But it was Powell’s answer to a controversial question—not her bikini body—that had everyone talking today. Television personality and actress NeNe Leakes asked Powell about the disparity between male and female incomes in the family unit in the United States during the interview portion. Utah flubbed the answer pretty brutally.

 

 

Video emerged Monday showing a sweaty naked man attacking several travelers at a San Francisco BART subway station last month. The man, who is fully nude and sporting a large afro, is seen tackling several passengers, including one terrified woman who is forced to the ground by the assailant. This man was arrested Monday for this incident.

 

 

 

WARNING: Strong language. A video has emerged overnight Wednesday showing an airline pilot at Ocean City in Maryland grappling with a drunken, abusive passenger on the floor of the departure lounge. It is not known what caused the argument, but the video, which appears to have been taken by a fellow passenger, shows the burly passenger shouting profane abuse at the pilot, who replies: “You’re not getting on an airplane tonight.

 

 

 

I think we can all relate to this video. A tired dog refuses to get out of bed after being called several times. The video shows the dog tossing and turning each time the owner tells her to get up.

 

 

 

One person is in a coma and eight are hospitalized after a pool party prank in Mexico goes horribly wrong. Alcoholic drink company Jägermeister hosted the party, which took a turn for the worst when four bottles of nitrogen were intentionally poured directly into the pool, creating a noxious cloud that knocked guests unconscious.

“They realized that I had fainted because they saw the tray floating alone in the pool,” Jael Jimenez, a hostess at the party, told Milenio.com. “Otherwise, I might have drowned.”

 

 

In what is likely more of a gag than an actual outreach project, a comedian known as “The Fat Jew” has appeared in a video leading a SoulCycle-style class for homeless people on parked Citi Bikes. “Fat Jew,” whose real name is Fabrizio Goldstein, enthusiastically encourages the group to “let the music take over” and focus on “core tightness” as the participants spin as fast as they can on stationary bicycles. Did you know when Citi Bikes, which recently launched on the streets of New York, are docked, their wheels still spin? Neither did we…

 

During a recent performance at the 2013 Bonnaroo Art and Music festival in Manchester, Tennessee, Wu-Tang Clan came together to rock the stage and put on a show for fans and festival goers. While the Wu was performing their hits and other classic jams, there was someone else putting on a memorable performance of their own, the American Sign Language Interpreter.

 

 

In this fun commercial, Tampax is telling you that without their leak protection tampons, you will attract hungry sharks, a stronger message than we Americans are used to. Yikes! Maybe the real lesson here is don’t go swimming in Russian waters during that time of the month.

This heart-stopping closed circuit video footage, released overnight, shows the moment a group of relaxing couriers saved the life of a two year old girl as she plunged from the balcony of her home. The incident happened in Ninghai, China. The two year old, named Chichi, escaped the attention of her mother, named locally as Kiki Yeung, and climbed out of the fifth floor balcony window. The couriers, who are parked in the street below, notice the little girl’s predicament after hearing her cries. They gang together to catch her, breaking her fall that would probably have otherwise proved fatal.
