We’re all kind of sick of the Mannequin Challenge, right? At this point, it’s kind of gone to the dogs, and we’re better for it.

No one told these guys, though. At least their Mannequin Challenge went out with guns blazing.

In Alabama, this Mannequin Challenge, which features an intense shootout, led to two arrests on gun and drug charges. These guys took the challenge really seriously.

According to The Huffington Post:

Authorities got wind of the footage and obtained a search warrant, and a SWAT team raided the Huntsville property at 5 a.m. on Tuesday, Madison County Sheriff’s Captain Mike Salomonsky said at a press conference.
They seized two handguns, an assault rifle and a shotgun, as well as several rounds of ammunition and magazines. It’s not clear whether any of these weapons appeared in the video. Authorities also confiscated bags of marijuana and a computer, Salomonsky said.

Can we just lay the Mannequin Challenge to rest, before someone gets hurt, please?

Hey, if you’re going to steal a cop car, why not share the experience with your friends?

Police arrested John Pinney, a Tulsa resident, who stole a cop car and streamed the joyride on Facebook Live on Monday night. Pinney's friends and followers got to join in the fun of stealing a patrol car, engaging in a high-speed police chase, and singing along to the radio without the added stress of breaking the law.

Oklahoma's News on 6 reports that Pinney simply walked up to the unlocked patrol car, opened the door, and took off.

News On 6 continues, "Tulsa police sergeant Steve Stoltz said a woman called 911 and told the dispatcher a man got into a police car near 5th and Denver, asked if she wanted a ride, then drove off when she said no."

Presumably, when this woman declined to be Pinney's audience, he turned to the officer's iPad, where he logged onto Facebook and proceeded to bring officers and followers on a 30-to-40-minute, 120-mile-per-hour car chase.

Stoltz "Liked" Pinney's approach to expediting police procedure.

"I would encourage every criminal out there to Facebook Live their crimes so that we can catch you a lot easier," said Stoltz. "Use that Facebook Live at your trial to get a better conviction."

According to News on 6, Pinney was arrested "on nine complaints, including eluding, resisting arrest, and possession of a firearm by a felon." Thanks to Facebook Live, we’ll be able to relieve these crimes over and over again.

Does this look familiar to you? Are you one of the 130,000 people at Standing Rock Reservaton in Cannon Ball, ND?

By most estimates, probably not, but that hasn’t stopped possibly you and a good chunk of your Facebook friends from checking-in at Standing Rock today.

If you’re one of the countless people who were wondering why all of your friends were suddenly in North Dakota, they're not. The check-in is part of a viral social media campaign to confuse the Morton County Sheriff’s Department, who is allegedly using Facebook geotags to round up protesters of the Dakota Access Pipeline or DAPL. In addition to the check-ins, a handy explainer has been going around Facebook as well. Most of them read something like this:

This is all done in service of standing in solidarity with the protestors of the controversial pipeline, which cost billions of dollars and aims to connect the Bakken and Three Forks oil pipelines, which, altogether, could transport nearly 500,000 barrels of crude oil a day. However, among other things, DAPL will cut through Sioux Native American reservations.

“The Standing Rock Sioux opposes the pipeline's construction near the Sioux reservation on the grounds that it threatens their public health and welfare, water supply and cultural resources,” writes Aaron Sidder of Smithsonian. “What began as a small protest camp in April on the Standing Rock reservation has since morphed into an encampment with over 1,000 people. Over the past few months, the Sacred Stone Camp, as it is now called, has been the site of a number of antagonistic face offs between protesters and the oil company.”

"The Standing Rock Sioux maintains that the government did not properly consult with them prior to shifting the pipeline’s route, and that the new crossing would entail destruction of sacred spots and old burial grounds."

There is still speculation, however, as to the validity of the Facebook campaign. According to Snopes, the Facebook post is still “Unproven,” so its affiliation to actual police activity is still unconfirmed.

We’ll have to wait and see if this form of protest is effective or not, or even if the Morton County Sheriff’s Department is using these Facebook check-ins to smoke out protesters. Until then, you’ll likely see more check-ins over the next day or so.

A basic white guy walked into a Subway restaurant and saw a worker using a bug zapper over the food bins to kill some gnats, so he took freaked out, took a video, and alerted the health department.

The 55-second video of the incident was made by Justin Clemons at the Subway restaurant, on the way back from golfing with his young son. Clemons is also advertising the licensing of the video on Facebook.

Subway responded after Clemons got over 14,000 views on his Facebook page, which he really enjoyed:




Subway corporate gave the news their official statement for the news too:



They threw out all the food in the store and admonished the clerk, who, as far as we know now, didn't lose his job from all the bug killing.


The jury is out on whether the food bins were closed when the zapping occurred, but the news says the gnats came from spoiled fruit or a drain in the floor, both of which seems kind of gross.

This is what happens when you leave your dad alone out in the woods with way too much time on his hands.

But it does look kinda fun.

Warning this video contains foul language… or does it?

Similar to boy who couldn't quite say "fire truck," this is what happens when you try to get a 2-year old kid to say "Frosting Bridge."

Alright children, now try: "The fire truck put out the fire on Frosting Bridge."

Admit it, you cried too.

This little girl gets teary-eyed in the backseat of the car over a scene from "The Chipmunk Adventure" when the Chipettes sing to a lost baby penguin.

But things get even more intense when, spoiler alert, the penguin find its parents.

This almost seems too good to be true.


Hot on the heels of "Alex from Target," this clip of a guy dancing while swiffering in his underwear is now literally everywhere.

Jimmy Pope, the nearly-naked star of the video, was cleaning up after a Halloween party, and strutting his stuff to Sheena Easton's "Morning Train" when his roommate caught him on camera.

The video has picked up more than 4 million views since it was posted last week, and it was featured all over the morning talk shows Monday including The Today Show, Good Morning America, and The View.

Twitter, doing what Twitter does best, helped spread the video with the hashtag #willworkforpants.

The uploader, Justin Chen, posted about all the exposure on his Facebook page:

"This isn't real life. It's some kind of weird joke and it's weirding me out.

No word yet on whether Breakr is also claiming responsibility for this video's success.

This GoPro camera has boldly gone where no GoPro camera has gone before.

Well, they have been nearly everywhere at this point, but this one is definitely hard to beat.

Over the summer, astronauts from NASA and the European Space Agency inserted a sealed GoPro camera into a water bubble to investigate water surface tension in microgravity on the International Space Station.

They also shot the video with a 3D camera, so if you have red-blue stereoscopic 3D vision glasses, you can watch that version here.
