Logan Paul's having a horrendous start to 2018. People everywhere are in a frenzy over the vlog he posted (and since removed) the other day, which featured footage of himself and friends wandering Japan's "Suicide Forest", until they came across a dead body. Instead of alerting authorities immediately, turning off their cameras, and offering their respects, they proceeded to laugh/joke uncomfortably around the body, while FILMING IT. That wasn't enough though. 

Paul and his other vlogger friend had to get those vlogs up ASAP. The backlash that ensued, and that continues to grow around their decision, naturally inspired them to remove their videos. Here we have the "Cash Me Outside" girl sounding like a normal person for the first time in her life, as she offers her take on Paul's decision to upload/film the video.

Grandma Goes Viral For Pulling Most Grandma Move Possible At Football Game

If this isn't the very epitome of an 'old people' problem, I don't know what is, man. Everything about this is the kind of FAIL we hope for here. She's just trying to catch that halftime show on her endlessly confusing phone, and ends up pulling off a little video selfie. The moment the fellow fan comes over to point out her fail to her is wonderful as well. Gotta be thankful for the rare kindness of strangers. 

Grandma goes viral on Twitter for pulling a ridiculous technology-challenged, old person move.

'Dog-Pee Man' Redeems Himself In The Most Wholesome Way Possible

A few weeks ago a video went viral that showed a man, Heinze Sanchez, distracted on his phone while a stray dog snuck up behind him and lifted its leg. You can watch the video here.

After noticing what was happening, Sanchez lashed out at the stray and sent it running. Despite the fact that he missed during his outburst people were upset that he had tried to hit the animal.

This story reached it's grand conclusion when Sanchez went to make up for his actions in the best way possible: Giving the dog a home.

In this wildly inappropriate, and painfully uncomfortable video Ben Affleck can be seen (wasted?) groping Montreal-based TV host, Anne Marie-Losique, while going so far as to suggest she does the interview topless. The video itself is making the rounds again, following the flood of troubling and disturbing allegations coming forward about Harvey Weinstein's multitude of sexual assaults

Deep down I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we're all just witnessing some absurdly aggressive guerilla marketing on the part of M&M's. Police that responded to the scene are already estimated the total damage caused being around $700. That's a whole lot of candy bro bro. Hope blowing off all that steam and ripping through the store like a steroid-drunk maelstrom of rage was worth it.

There are a thousand ways to say “I love you,” but tricking your partner into thinking your life's in danger probably isn’t one of them.

In a scary example of how common police brutality is in our culture, Daiwon McPherson of Mobile, Alabama used the horrific practice to the same ends as a flash mob, proposing to his girlfriend of five years after pretending to be victimized by police. Nothing says “let’s be together forever” like a traumatizing reminder of the grim realities of life.

via GIPHY

McPherson pulled the stunt off with the help of local police, who for some reason were more than happy to stage a scene of police violence in the name of love, drawing real gun on a real person in the name of a real blessed union. There’s nothing quite like watching your partner’s face switch from terror to confusion to relief in the blink of an eye.

The whole event started when McPherson never showed up for dinner and drinks with his girlfriend, when she got a call that he was “he was running from the cops while in possession of a gun,” according to The Daily Dot.

Meanwhile, McPherson had already spoken to police earlier, hoping that the video would go viral “to show an instance of police working with the community for a positive outcome.” Apparently, there are no other positive things police could do for their communities. Maybe, like, a charity car wash or something? Maybe police-hosted picnic? Maybe police talking to people in the community without their guns drawn? I don't know. Just spitballing here.

Of course, this hilarious gag plays on the videos of actual tragedies. As The Daily Dot rightly points out, “In the past three years, many videos involving police altercations with black civilians have gone viral for their depictions of police brutality, including the tragic deaths of Eric Garner, Philando Castile, Alton Sterling, and Tamir Rice.”

Lesson learned: If you're proposing, stick to flash mobs.

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.

via GIPHY

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.
