Viral Videos of the Week

It’s Friday! Time for our weekly round-up of the videos that have sent the internet into a frenzy this week.

This time, we’ve got Obama’s rendition of Uptown Funk, a disastrous weather forecast, babies going through tunnels and the new BMW. Enjoy!

1. Watch babies going through tunnels

We promise that if you’ve had a bad week, this funny video will make it a little bit better.

2. Watch a weather map go crazy live

This video of Fox 10’s weather map showing temperatures up to 3000 degrees thanks to a technical malfunction could have been a disaster. But instead, it’s gone viral with over 1,000,000 views after weather presenter Cory McCloskey turned the mishap into a comedy weather cast.

3. Watch the advert for the BMW i3

To introduce their new all-electric BMW, the car manufacturers have come up with this little marketing tool. Sure, a car with nothing under the hood might sound strange – but so did the Internet in 1994. More than 4,000,000 people have watched BMW’s video and tried to get their heads around this newfangled idea…

If the new BM doesn’t take your fancy, check out these highlights from the Detroit Auto Show for all the latest new cars. 

4. Watch a bus do a 140-point turn

Anyone who’s ever had trouble parking will sympathise (or laugh at) this mortified bus driver who found himself in a tight spot after following a mislabelled roadworks sign. The Norwich driver read ‘no access for any vehicle except buses’ on the sign, so he proceeded up the road… only to find himself stuck. A three-point turn clearly wasn’t going to suffice, so he spent several minutes carefully working his way out while amused pedestrians watched (and filmed, obviously).

5. Watch Barack Obama singing Uptown Funk

And last but not least, we’re going to leave you with this hilarious video of the US president’s rendition of the hit by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars. Don’t believe me? Just watch…
