This could have been just another video showing the epic football goals, but the creators jazzed it up with special effects including a Dinosaur, stripper, fire and explosions. The videos shows the reactions of famous football players such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney reacting to their goals by emitting fire, and other famous players doing bizarre things like bashing a Dinosaur or gyrating with a stripper. The occurrences look unbelievably real courtesy intelligent use of special effects. Definitely one of the most hilarious football videos.

Swedish singer Loreen won the Eurovision song contest 2012 for her dance track Euphoria. The video shows the singer-dancer performing at the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 in Azerbaijan's capital, Baku. Her melodious vocals and trippy dance moves are quite addictive.

Usually fan fiction is boring stuff - a slideshow of images, a collage of iconic posters, lyrics etc, but The Adventurous Adventures of One Direction takes fan-fic to another level. Made by Mark Parsons, lead animator on the FX show Archer, the animated video shows the members of One Direction - Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, and Liam Payne as superheroes. PSYMON, a caricature of Simon Cowell assigns them the task of freeing the world's kittens from the evil grasp of Lord Faptaguise. An entertaining watch for sure.
How I Broke My Hand
Jenna Marbles, blogger and entertainer is back with yet another pointless video. This time around, the focus of her non-stop chatter is, 'How I Broke My Arm'. The video begins with Jenna showing her broken right hand covered with plaster and goes on to tell how she broke her arm after hitting the wall while drunk (Surprised anyone?) and launches into a tirade of how she can't do daily chores with her left hand. The video has more than two million views, take a guess why.

This looks like an action-packed scene from a battle scene - explosions, firearms, soldiers et al but the only difference is that it is a paintball war! With good cinematography by Devin Graham, Jace Leroy, Chris McClain and thumping music, the video is worth a watch for any action games junkie.
