Luke Bryan - Harlem Globetrotter?

Country music star Luke Bryan showed that if the vocal chords ever give out, he might have a career as a Harlem Globetrotter. With Globetrotter Handles by his side, Bryan performed the ol' spinning ball trick, and did it pretty well. At least he's enjoying himself, and at the end of the day, that's all that matters.

Cheerleader Does Front Handspring and Makes Halfcourt Shot in Same Motion

This one's been making the rounds lately, and for good reason. Ashlee Arnau, a cheerleader at William Carey University in Hattiesburg, MS, made an insane halfcourt shot during a stoppage in play. What's even more impressive is that she's done this before while bouncing it in. But I don't think that one was in front of tons of people. Well done, Ashley. Well done.

Harlem Reacts to Harlem Shake Videos

As anyone with a pulse knows, these silly Harlem Shake videos have taken over the world. Heck, even my company has made one (and yes, I made a cameo). But what do the actual folks of Harlem think of the dance? They think it's stupid, that's what. But don't take my word for it--let them tell you themselves.

Goats Yelling Like Humans

I honestly don't even know what to say about this video. The title of this post clearly describes what you're going to witness. Some kind soul has captured a bunch of goats screaming, and it sounds like humans. As far as I can tell, these are actually real sounds. But who knows for sure? Special shoutouts go to the spitting goat, and the one that screams like Homer Simpson. Well done all around.

DeMar DeRozan Posterizes Timofey Mozgov

Nuggets center Timofey Mozgov is no stranger to being posterized, as he fell victim to probably Blake Griffin's most fearsome dunk. Well, he's back at it again, as a couple nights ago he tried to block a DeMar DeRozan drive. Let's just say Mozgov failed.

World, Meet Doug Anderson, Human Trampoline

Detroit's Doug Anderson may not be a household name, but man, can this kid fly. Check out his two incredible dunks from last night's game against Cleveland State. The second one in particular is absolutely amazing. Gets my early vote for college dunk of the year.

The Women of LA

DJ Lubel and Co. have made a video dissecting the women of L.A. Having just moved from the area, I can say it's fairly accurate. The description is below, and the video features fun cameos from Pauly Shore, Jaleel White and Dennis Haskins.

DJ arrives in Los Angeles, California after years in Murray Hill (New York City) to discover he's got no chance of getting laid. DJ quickly meets The Women of LA -- the good, the bad, the hot, and the ugly. Celebrate 2013 Valentine's Day alone...or better yet with the girls from West Hollywood, Venice, Santa Monica, Brentwood, Los Feliz, and more.

Kai the Hitchhiker Saves Woman From Attack

Sometimes, things happen, and you just know they're going to be memes and quoted for at least 24 hours. This is one of those cases. Watch as a local FOX affiliate interviews a man who was just trying to get a ride with a stranger, but ended up with a whole lot more on his hands when the driver started driving into people and attacking others that came to said hit people's respective aides. The best part (aside from the depressingly hilarious final line) is when Kai is describing how he hit the crazy driver with his hatchet, using only the word "SMASH." An excellent watch.

Caron Butler, Professional Troll

This one absolutely cracked me up. At the end of another disappointing loss, this time to the Raptors, the Clippers' Caron Butler had some fun. He goes over to Jonas Valanciunas, acting as if he's going to shake his hand. Then he pokes the ball loose and heads toward the other basket. Valanciunas reaches out and fouls him, and Butler hits the two free throws. So the Clippers lose by 25 instead of 27. Worth it? Not at all. But still hilarious to watch.

Which Super Bowl Ads Were Best?

If for some reason you don't like football, you probably tuned into the Super Bowl to catch the commercials. And you probably left disappointed. The crop seemed especially lame this year, but there were a few gems. Let's look at my five favorites below, in no particular order:

The Rock stars in a Milk commercial. Just an average day at work for the People's Champ.

Samsung's Galaxy commercial features the following: Seth Rogen. Paul Rudd. Bob Odenkirk basically being Saul from Breaking Bad. That's really all you need. Not even a cameo from LeBron James drags this one down. 

Audi's "Prom" commercial was pretty solid. I'm not that far removed from my high school years, and though I know that prom would have still been okay had I gone dateless, I don't know if I would have shown the bravery this fella did had I been sans lady friend. And that's why this is awesome.

Kia's "Where Do Babies Come From?" ad was FANTASTIC. Love the outrageousness of it, and let's be real. Babies + animals = cute. Sometimes it really is that simple.

Budweiser's "Brotherhood" was probably the most touching commercial of the whole Super Bowl. Watch as the little colt grows up and joins the pantheon of successful advertising horses.

Vince Carter Fakes an Injury, Then Dunks

In a classic Vince Carter move, the Mavericks forward slipped and fell. Well, that part wasn't classic Vince—it's what came next that was. Carter began clutching at his ankle, causing Harrison Barnes, who was defending him, to move away from the corner where Vince was standing. Moments later, a rejuvenated Carter ran toward the basket, received a pass, and dunked the ball, before grabbing his wrist in what appeared to be a new injury. Beautifully played.
