Rapper Young Thug wanted a lot of cool things in his video: Girls in bikinis, little kids smashing a cop car with Super Soakers, Power Wheels, and, of course, the man himself eating Cheetos. The one thing, apparently, he didn’t want was to show up.

The new Young Thug video explains what happened one fateful when Ryan Staake, the co-director of Young Thug’s video for "Wyclef Jean," realized his co-director, Young Thug, wasn’t going to show up for the shoot. Despite being told that the rapper was on his way, Staake powered through, shooting the girls riding the Power Wheels, Young Thug’s own son destroying a cop car in front of real cops, and two girls, one Kielbasa. He also intercuts the video with audio clips of Young Thug describing what he wanted in the video. It’s amazing.

Now, it’s worth noting that this might eb all part of the video conception. It was, afterall, released by Young Thug. But fake or not, it’s a really cool idea for a music video that doesn’t make the performer look too great.

Just think of what could've been:

Do you hate yourself?

Perfect. Have I got the song for you. Then you have got to listen to this version of Smash Mouth’s immortal “All Star.” What’s so special about it? Well, all of the notes in the song are auto-tuned to C. This is a disorienting, terrifying, and maddening ride that will make your week very, very weird.

Prepare yourself for the worst song of the year.

It can be really easy to overlook the importance of the triangle in the symphony. So it’s nice to see someone finally showing them some recognition.

When Twitter-user @jbell tweeted his thoughts on “triangles guy,” another percussionist decided the tweet needed to be printed out and pasted to the percussion room wall.

Look to the tweet whenever you’re feeling down, San Fransisco Symphony percussion section.

When the Internet uses its powers for good, the results are incredible.

It’s been an difficult year for Angela McElhiney, an understatement to say the least. Her 15 year-old son Nathan committed suicide in October. To remember him, she cherishes a video of Nathan singing “Wayfaring Stranger,” taken one month before his death.

However, because the video was taken in a high school gymnasium, the audio quality is poor to say the least, muffled by the audience’s restless noise.

"It was such a bad recording and I just wanted to be able to hear him better," Angela told CNN. "Right now, I feel like it's very therapeutic because I feel like it's the journey he's taking.”

So Angela turned to Internet. After posting the video to Reddit, she asked if anyone could help fix the audio or, at the very least, begin the path to cleaning it up. An hour later, she started getting new mixes with cleaner audio.

In total, she received about 20 versions of the clip.

"I never expected so much kindness and so many people taking time out of their day," she said. “We can't express our gratitude enough.”

However, as CNN reported:

The first Christmas without Nathan has been hard for McElhiney and her family and this has been a welcome distraction for her. She tried to thank everyone who responded to her post, but fell behind when the number of comments grew into the thousands.
