This week in Viral Videos, a Range Rover drives over a paper bridge, we take a look inside the world’s best man cave, a GoPro recording gone wrong and a French dad explains good and bad to his young son…
1. Watch a Range Rover drive over a paper bridge
To celebrate 45 years of Range Rovers, the iconic vehicle makers decided to attempt a world first, and drive one of the cars over a paper bridge. Here’s how it unfolded…
2. Take a look inside the world’s best man cave
British inventor Colin Furze achieved one of mankind’s biggest ambitions and created an underground bunker – y’know, just in case the apocalypse lands any time soon.

3. Watch GoPro gone wrong
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new favourite GoPro footage video, in which Joseph P.

Over 7,000,000 people have now watched the video – so it seems what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas.
4. Watch a masterclass in how not to ski
If you’re already excited to hit the slopes this winter, we hope you have more luck than supposed “pro” skier Ian McIntosh, who takes a 1,600 ft tumble in this viral video. Thankfully (and somewhat miraculously), he survived his fall unscathed, at least for the most part.
5. Watch a Parisian explain to his son how we can beat the bad guys
We couldn’t not include probably the most-watched viral video of the week, featuring one French dad explaining good and bad to his young son, following the horrifying terror attacks in Paris last week that have left the world reeling. Not only does he deserve a dad of the year award after that, the father and son duo’s display of “humanity in the face of inhumanity” also been credited with “helping the French let go of their tears”.
