We're with the dog. That pineapple is up to something.
Earlier this month, YouTube user Jolene Creighton uploaded a video of her pit bull, Stella, barking apprehensively at a pineapple on the counter. When the pineapple is placed in front of her, Stella continues to bark and back away, seemingly trying to warn the foolish humans of the imminent threat.
What should we fear, Stella? Is the pineapple an explosive? Poisonous? A secret listening device from Team Cat?
We may never know the true threat we face.

A video of a baby meeting twins for the first time is blowing up online. They're younger than he is, and on either side of him. And he keeps looking back and forth like he doesn't get it . . . although they don't exactly look identical, since one is crying.

Before you waste an hour wrapping Christmas presents, check out a video called "Gift Wrapping Hack"
. Instead of centering a box in the middle of the paper, the trick is to start with one of the corners. And you can wrap a gift in ten seconds flat.

Some "Star Wars" fan took dash-cam footage of a snow-covered highway in Germany . . . and added CGI to make it look like a Tie Fighter was broken down on the side of the road.
As the car drives by, you see two Stormtroopers next to it, looking all annoyed like they're waiting for a tow truck.

Los Angeles got hit by a TORNADO Friday morning, for the first time since 2004. It was an EF-0, which is the lowest rating there is, but it still did some damage.
It hit about five miles south of downtown L.A., and there's video of it passing right over a guy on his balcony . . . who was so shocked, he couldn't stop swearing.

YouTube released its list of the "top trending" videos of the year yesterday, based on views, likes, shares, and how many parodies they inspired.
And number one is the prank video where a dog is dressed as a giant spider. It's been viewed over 100 million times since it hit YouTube back in September.
Number two is a Nike World Cup ad with a bunch of soccer players in it, which was popular overseas. And number three is the video where complete strangers had to KISS each other. That one's been viewed over 90 million times.
The one where a woman walked around New York and got harassed by guys also made the list. If you want to check out the top ten, just search for "YouTube Rewind - Top Trending Videos of 2014".
(YouTube also put out their annual "YouTube Rewind" video yesterday, which is five minutes of YouTube stars singing and doing stuff that was popular this year. Jimmy Kimmel, Conan O'Brien, and Stephen Colbert all have cameos in it.)

The whole computerized Christmas light thing has gotten really popular, where you sync up your lights with music. But there's a suburb in Los Angeles where an entire NEIGHBORHOOD just did it.
They somehow linked the lights on all their houses . . . set it to the song "Wizards in Winter" by Trans-Siberian Orchestra . . . and filmed it with a drone.
