Friday Afternoon Distractions
Whiling away your last few hours at work? These videos should help make time fly extra fast!
Sesame Street has become so incredibly ... current, of late.
With its True Blood "True Mud" parody, a skimpily dressed Katy Perry causing an uproar, and Ricky Gervais chatting casually with Elmo about the Holocaust, it's certainly moved on from the patronisingly sanitised kiddie show that we remember so fondly.
Michael C. Hall has returned.
The above clip is a "remix" of various sounds and voices from the show, mixed together to create an incredible track, which was put together by a fantastic music producer, who has created similar tracks from other iconic television programs and movies, including Harry Potter, Pixar's Up and Mary Poppins.
We recommend visiting his YouTube channel to enjoy some more of his material.
Now, more post-viral-meets-real-world action from the Bed Intruder kids at the BET Hip Hop Awards 2010.
It's a great swansong for the massively popular meme that has enabled the star, Antoine Dodson, to earn money and buy a house for his family outside the Projects.

If only all pre-flight emergency demonstrations were this much fun!
This clip comes from Philippines airline Cebu, which is clearly trying to keep themselves entertained while keeping the passengers informed.
After Virgin Atlantic's hit promotional video last week, the airlines seem to be rediscovering their personalities after the economic crises.
'80s legend Michael J Fox makes a welcome return to his Delorean in this promotional video for the Scream Awards 2010.
Despite a slight stammer, you could almost believe he's not aged a day, never mind suffering from a degenerative disease. Great nostalgic stuff!
This tongue-in-cheek discussion of Barack Obama's presidency put G&S;'s compositions to fantastic use.
This week's viral video of choice has been a certain Craig Morgan -- and the world has certainly fallen for his charms. In his original video, which has almost 4 million views on YouTube, he sends up Kristen Wiig's performance in a scene from Saturday Night Live -- see it above.
