A security guard in Georgia recently let down his guard for a few minutes, and he’s now become somewhat of a viral sensation.

A visitor to the National Library of Parliament recorded Omar Tsereteli as he was playing the piano, and it turns out he’s really amazing.

Time for a career change?

According to the caption, he didn’t know he was being filmed, and the YouTube clip now has over 1 million views.

The seats in the room may be empty, but the world is listening Omar!

He’s performing Ludovico Einaudi’s “Giorni Dispari,” according to the UK’s Metro.

Mmmm… 'Murica!

Competitive eater Molly Schuyler broke a new record this weekend, eating 3 72-oz steaks in less than 20 minutes.

At this year's 72oz Showdown at the Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo, Texas, Schuyler was matched up against four teams of two, and she singlehandedly destroyed her competition while besting herself in the process.

The other teams included professional wrestlers and football players and they each had one hour to throw down as much as they could.

In total, Schuyler, who weighs just 124 pounds, ate 3 steaks, 3 backed potatoes, 3 shrimp cocktails, 3 side salads and 3 rolls.

Basically, as The Big Texan describes it, she consumed more than 13.5 pounds of food which is "the equivalent of a bowling ball or averaged sized three-month-old baby."



Anyone who stops by The Big Texan can take the challenge, but if they don't finish their meal in an hour they have to pay $72.

Schuyler not only got the 3 free meals, but also a $5,000 prize… and apparently an extended trip to the bathroom.

Advice of the Day: Surgeon General Tells Elmo Why He Needs a Vaccination

Anti-vaxxers just got schooled by a little red muppet.

Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, Sesame Street and The Daily Dot have teamed up in a new PSA about why vaccinations are so important.

In the 3-minute clip, Murthy explains to Elmo, who initially isn’t so keen on getting a shot, why he needs one if he wants to stay healthy. He compares it to wearing a bicycle helmet or carrying an umbrella when it rains.

Murthy talked more about the collaboration on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services blog:

Vaccines are among the most successful and cost-effective public health tools we have for preventing disease and death. They not only help protect vaccinated individuals, but they also help protect entire communities by preventing and reducing the spread of infectious diseases. Among children in the U.S. born between 1994 and 2013, routine vaccinations will prevent an estimated 322 million illnesses, 21 million hospitalizations, and 732,000 deaths over the course of their lifetimes.

And they both took a little dig at the anti-vaxxer movement at the end of the video.

“That was so easy. Why doesn’t everybody get a vaccination,” he says.

“That’s a good question Elmo,” Murthy replies.
