First, a serious video… watch as this soldier tells his father over the telephone that he’s gay. Of course, the military’s ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy has been repealed.

We are the YouTube generation, sharing moments with the world that one would’ve never thought practical, let alone possible. Here’s another one of those moments, although far more lighthearted. Apparently this kid is a big Utah Utes football fan.

Finally, Greyson Chance has once again captured the attention of Lady GaGa and many others online with another cover. Here’s the teenager’s take on Mother Monster’s YoĆ¼ and I.

First off, check out this amazing compilation of epic fails regarding people attempting to sing our country’s national anthem.

Next up, here’s 21 year-old “The X-Factor” competitor Jade Richards singing Adele’s “Someone Like You.”

And here’s Bobby Brown’s and Whitney Houston’s daughter ruining that same song.

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year’s, and is right around the corner. So, here’s a Kosher-friendly spoof of the summer’s biggest song. Mazel Tov!

Here’s another spoof, this time paying tribute to outgoing Apple creator Steve Jobs with a parody of Jay-Z’s “What More Can I Say?” off The Black Album.

And speaking of Jay-Z, if you missed State Farm’s Spike Lee-directed commercial for September 11, continue scrolling and hit play.

Loving this baseball season’s commercials from hat company New Era (Buffalo, NY shout out!) featuring Red Sox fan John Krasinski and Yankees fan Alec Baldwin. Here’s the latest edition of their battle for team supremacy.

Nicki Minaj and Rihanna just dropped an epic video for “Fly.”

And this is definitely one of the cooler concepts I’ve seen for a YouTube video. Enjoy!

We’ll start with the event that shook the east coast… literally. A 5.8 earthquake in Virginia was shallow enough to cause tremors as far north as Toronto.


Switching gears now to song covers, here’s that father/daughter duo tackling Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.”

And an unconventional cover of Ke$ha’s “Blow” using kitchenware.

I’ve taken the New York City Subway a many times, and have never seen something this… awesome?

To a much more normal setting for a performance, here’s a pretty good YouTube cover of Demi Lovato’s “Skyscraper”

It wouldn’t be correct to compare this first guy to Ted Williams, the voice-over talent who rose to YouTube stardom and national prominence earlier this year. First, he is talented not for a God-give gift but for the three, yes, three degrees he’s earned. Second, he doesn’t have an addiction problem. Check out his story below.

Next, shout out to our brave men and women in the Armed Forces, specifically the Air Force, regardless of if they can cover Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” or not.

Speaking of covers, where’s KanYe West when you need him? JUST KIDDING TAYLOR SWIFT – who BTW, SMILES as she sings her rendition of Eminem’s “Lose Yourself.” I’d expect nothing less.

Matt Damon lent his celebrity status and intellect to saving teachers’ jobs over the weekend at a rally in Washington D.C. A reporter approached him with an interesting question about incentive-based programs for teachers. Damon wasn’t trying to hear that noise.

Speaking of noise, as if we needed more proof that songs are sounding more and more similar to each other, check out this. Here’s the group Axis of Awesome performing a medley of songs that are based on four chords. Can’t even say I’m surprised.

And finally… I have no words for this.

What happens when two British guys tour Wal-Mart? A pretty hilarious YouTube video…

With the 90’s constantly trending on Twitter as of late, figured I’d throw this in: the acapella group Local Vocal with a medley of 90’s dance tracks.

And finally, a tear jerker. Joshua is disabled and really depends on his relationships with his sister and brother. His older brother was sent overseas with the military last year. He recently returned home, and the family caught the reunion on camera.

Okay, I lied. Not the last one. With searches for her videos reaching the tens of millions after her death last weekend, R.I.P. Amy Winehouse.

Contain your excitement here, Rebecca Black is back with a song called, “My Moment.”

Mila Kunis initially turned down a marine’s invite to the Marine Corp Ball in Washington D.C. before accepting. So what about her “Friends with Benefits” co-star Justin Timberlake?

Yeah, move along, nothing to see here… DON’T ACT LIKE YOU’RE NOT IMPRESSED (Ron Burgundy voice).
