Viral Videos of the Week

In this week’s Viral Videos of the week, watch the biggest water bomb you’ve ever seen, a very scary scarecrow, a kangaroo boxing match and a genius way to breakdance (no skill necessary)…

A meteor crossed the Brazilian city of Recife on Wednesday at around 10pm, illuminating the sky with multicoloured light. And some quick thinking spectators captured it on video to share with the rest of the world…
