There is no exercise I hate more than push-ups, so whenever I successfully do a set of them without collapsing, I do a little happy dance. And that’s just regular push-ups! I can only imagine the happy dance I would do after mastering this jaw-dropping multi-person, stacked push-up, demoed here by three trainers from Newtown Athletic Club in a video the club posted to Facebook. It would probably be a happy dance of Flash Dance proportions.
Check out the insane push-up variation below. Then try it out for yourself — just make sure you really, really trust your partners. Read more »
Earlier today on the Hanover, Pennsylvania, Eagle Cam.
Earlier this year, the Pennsylvania Game Commission once again set up a camera focused on a bald eagle’s nest near Codorus State Park in Hanover, Pennsylvania.
Now, there appear to be a pair of eggs in the nest on the adorable HD bald eagle cam, which is done in partnership with a company called HDontap, Comcast Business Services, Friends of Codorus State Park and other partners. Read more »
Police are looking for a man who freaked out at a Little Caesars on Valentine’s Day, throwing punches at a cashier, grabbing the phone and cash register and knocking over a rack of food. He eventually fled in a car with some friends.
The footage, from the Little Caesars on West Girard Avenue, is one of the more incredible police surveillance videos in some time. Let’s go through it with GIFs. Read more »
Cut Video found three grandmothers in Washington (where marijuana is legal) who had never smoked pot before and persuaded them to do it on camera. What results, naturally, is hilarious. And they get blasted—smoking from a bong, a vaporizer, and sipping on marijuana-infused tea.
Check out the video above for unforgettable quotes like, “I could go iron for days now,” and “I’d do it again … if I could get this bag of chips open.”
Get ready for your morning chuckle, folks: Buzzfeed convinced a few reluctant men to do yoga for the very first time, and they got it all on videotape. Granted, some of the poses the instructor throws at these guys would never, ever come up in an actual beginner’s class. That said, watching someone say yoga is “just kind of sleeping, right?” and then, moments later, groan while attempting a forward fold is pretty chuckle-worthy. And, the faces—oh, the faces are good.
If you’re a dude and this somehow inspires you to get off your tuckus and give yoga a chance, check out Philly yoga instructor Jake Panasevich, who pretty much specializes in yoga for guys. Check out his class schedule here.

YouTube pranksters PrankvsPrank rolled in to Philly this weekend to scare the crap out of some innocent passersby. They set up gruesome homicide scenes all over town—like across from Green Eggs in the Gayborhood and on South Street—and waited for folks to stroll up to find a dead body covered in a sheet. Just before they had time to let it sink in, the body jumps up and, well, you can imagine what happens next. The whole thing was caught on film. Check it out above.
Philly videographer Mike Cessario just wrapped on the pilot of a proposed documentary series that follows local electronic dance music (EDM) pioneer and Actual Records founder Aaron Ruxbin.
Cessario tells me he decided to shoot a film that focuses on Ruxbin because of the DJs unlikely story. He was a Drexel University business grad who “ditched the cubicle to create a grimey underground dance music empire in Philadelphia,” he says. “EDM has exploded and DJs are the new rockstars, but I want to show the less-glamorous side of the business—the side that actually powers 90 percent of [the Philly EDM scene].”
These days, Cessario says, Ruxbin basically lives out of his car while putting on sold-out shows at TLA and, for a little side money, a strip club called Purple Orchid. All that’s captured in pilot, with commentary by local MC Buddy Leezle and DJ Jack Deezl.
Cessario hopes this short film will attract investors who may be interested in backing a more-blown-out documentary. If not, this could be the only episode we’ll see. “This will remain a conceptual pilot for a series until we find more support. If we don’t, it will die and go to the pilot graveyard.”

Your favorite pair of Nikes might already be ranked in the top 10 when it comes to your list of can’t-live-without possessions, but after seeing all the insane science and hard work that goes into designing them, they’ll seem even more precious. The video above gives an inside look at how Nike athletic shoes come to life in the Nike Explore Team Research Lab. And let me tell you, it is pretty freakin’ awesome.
Channing Tatum and Philly-bred DJ Diplo have collaborated on a ridiculous—albeit hilarious–song and video that recalls Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg’s “Dick in a Box.”
“Dick Graze” is all about dudes greeting each other with a soft pat on the groin area—something we absolutely don’t recommend trying at home. Tatum’s 22 Jump Street co-star Jillian Bell also makes what could be an even funnier appearance, introducing the female version of a “Dick Graze,” the “Booby Meeting.” (Definitely don’t try that at home, either).

Philly Redditors came across this YouTube video of Taney Dragons pitcher Erik Lipson singing Bruno Mars’ “Grenade.” The kid can belt out a tune, but some commenters took offense to the video, claiming he’s the victim of greedy stage parents:
About a couple weeks ago on this sub, there was a girl asking for help making a highlight video of one of the little leaguer’s for his father to give to talent agencies (it was clearly about Erik, because she pointed out his personality over his playing performance).
Now his parents are pushing this.
Pretty fucked up to watch parents try to force their children into stardom at this age. Those kids already had too much spotlight and pressure put on them during the LLWS. Just let him be a kid.
I haven’t seen any evidence of his parents forcing him to do the video. Maybe he just wants to be the next Justin Bieber, or, as the title of the video reads, “Justin Berber.” There have been several singing videos posted on his YouTube page over the last eight months, which you can find here.
