December Viral Videos

We’ve taken a look at some of the best viral videos of December, and have compiled them all here for your time-wasting.

Eat, Fry, Love: William Shatner Remixed is a personal favorite at our offices, with the phrase “dingle-dangle” having entered our daily lexicon.

Man has gained mastery over flight and space, but what good is this power if we cannot send burritos to one another from a distance.

What, in fact, does a Michelin Star mean to those who fight for them?

This parrot can open a beer can.

If you ever wanted to make Doritos consomme…

… or how to make Doritos dust a food-topping.

While we’ll be getting a gender-neutral Easy-Bake Oven, this video didn’t hurt it’s announcement.

The Simpsons are a modern American classic, and gingerbread houses are a Christmas tradition. Combine them both!

Have you ever wanted to wakeskate over a field of cranberries?

Or eat the entire Denny’s Hobbit menu in one sitting?

Or want a reason to not eat 12 days of Christmas leftovers?

Or just see how hard it is to say “baked in a buttery, flaky crust”?

Welcome To The "Luv Shaq", Shaq's New Vodka

Shaquille O’Neal is known for a pretty good basketball career. He’s an Olympic Gold Medalist, multiple-time MVP, and ranks sixth in all-time points scored. He may not be the best, but he has been a really great (and notable) basketball player.

He’s also known, for better or worse, his rap career, his movie career, and even a memorable turn in the video game Shaq-Fu. With one album having gone Platinum, his movies range from Blue Chips and Kazaam to Steel and… well, that was it. Shaq-Fu was critically panned,

Now, he’s taking his hand at vodka. Luv Shaq, his new brand of vodka, will release in early 2013. For the active-alcohol-imbiber, the drink will be both sugar and gluten-free. Devotion Vodka will produce the drink, which reportedly comes in a coconut flavor, The New York Post reports.

Sure, I’ll give it a shot. Hopefully it’s a slam dunk (Yes, those puns are horrid), and not a disaster on the level of Shaq-Fu.

Pepsi And Chicken Flavored Potato Chips Ruffle China

Okay, technically they’re not Ruffles, but you try coming up with a word to fit into that title.

On the list of “odd things Asia has that we’d try at least once”, Lay’s has introduced a new flavor of potato chip: Pepsi And Chicken. It’s not the first Pepsi-formulated product to sound odd to Americans, with the fat-block Pepsi Special and the special Pepsi White currently on shelves in Japan, and it really isn’t that odd to China.

Cola-cooked chicken is apparently a regular, or at least not-uncommon, dish in China. Whether boiled, fried, or marinated, cola and chicken surprisingly work well together; in America, we have beer-can chicken to equate it too.

So, while Pepsi-flavored chips would be an oddity, chicken flavored chips wouldn’t , and therefore cola-cooked chicken chips isn’t exactly the most absurd concept.

Why Pepsi? Pepsi owns Frito-Lay if you forgot. It’s called synergy.

I’d give them a try if they were around.
