In honor of Father's Day, which is tomorrow, in case you forget (and I really hope you didn't!), here are three really cute dad-related internet videos. Enjoy!
I briefly mentioned this video last month, but it's so cute I think it warrants mentioning again. The Google Chrome video tells the story of a father/daughter who recently lost their wife/mother... and the evolution of their father-daughter relationship because of it.
Two-year-old Diogo Mello, armed with a pint-sized ukulele, performs The Beatles' "Don't Let Me Down" with his dad in this video and he absolutely steals the show. It must be tough being so adorable, you know?
What do a heart-wrenching episode of an HBO show, a singing 8-year-old in a music video, and sloths have in common? Absolutely nothing, but we are talking about them this week.
Game of Thrones Reactions
Technically, what happened in last week's episode of "Game of Thrones" was public knowledge prior to its air date, since George R. R. Martin released the third book in his series in 2000. But not all of us have read his novels and instead only watch the HBO series... SO THE EPISODE HURT. I won't say anything except: why? And why am I such a masochist? And why does George R. R. Martin hate us so much? Sigh. Thankfully, I'm in good company. Videos of "Game of Thrones" fans reacting to the episode have made their way around the internet. (NSFW language at the source.) The episode has effectively divided the entire fan base into "show watchers" — people like me, who will not speak of such a mortifying experience — and "book readers" — those who knew what was coming and thought it was toootally funny when the rest of us were horrified. TV watchers unite! ...As we cry ourselves to sleep waiting for the season finale this weekend.
Do you love cute things? Do you especially love then those cute things happen to be puppies? What about multiple puppies in a laundry basket making the cutest little noises that only puppies can make? Yeah, happy Thursday!
Self-proclaimed "geeks" may have delighted in Free Comic Book Day earlier this month, but who says nerds only deserve one day of celebration? Today, May 25, is official Geek Pride Day, which is celebrated annually on this date to commemorate the release of the first Star Wars film, "A New Hope" in 1977. Sure, Star Wars Day is also May 4th (because it wouldn't be right if geeks everywhere couldn't utter "may the 4th be with you!" on that day), but the saga is so beloved that a second celebration is fine by me.
The original Geek Pride Day originated in Spain, where it was called "Día del orgullo friki." So, in honor of the day, here is a video of cats in a "Star Wars" parody because this is the internet. Enjoy!
