We don't know where this happened, but someone uploaded a video of six kids sledding down a hill in a CANOE. And at the bottom there's a LAKE, which they go straight into. Luckily, they don't tip over. Because the water looks seriously cold.
Bob: This seems to be dangerous to me...and no paddles? Like the person says at the end, "How we gonna get them back?"
(They start at 1:46.)

here's a new PSA getting millions of views on YouTube. And the people who made it are trying to bring more attention to what's going on in Syria.
The video shows one year for a nine-year-old girl, but in one-second increments. And at the beginning, everything's fine and she's happy. But then bombs start falling and her family gets evacuated.
By the end, she's sitting in a hospital, separated from them. And she seems like a completely different person. It's actually kind of tough to watch, but maybe IMPORTANT to watch too.

Remember the guys from Epic Meal Time, the guys who captivated our attention for like six weeks sometime back in 2011?
Well, apparently they are still alive. And making videos. With celebrity cameos.
This week, they brought Arnold Schwarzenegger on, to make a Steak-an-Egger Sandwich. Get it?

According to "Back to the Future Part 2", we should be getting hoverboards next year. But there's already a new promotional video online with Christopher Lloyd and Tony Hawk . . . where they show off REAL hoverboards.
Or at least that's what they want you to THINK . . . because unfortunately, we still don't have the technology. But in the video, it shows celebrities like Terrell Owens and Moby flying around on them . . . which is really just special effects, obviously.
The weird thing is, no one seems to know WHY the ad was made, because it's not clearly promoting any products other than hoverboards. So some people think there might be another "Back to the Future" SEQUEL coming.
Whoever made it also made a hoverboard website
to make it seem more authentic. And for some reason, the date "December 2014" is at the top.

A guy who does pranks on YouTube recently decided to be a good Samaritan for once. And his newest video is pretty awesome.
He gives a homeless guy a lottery ticket, and tells him it's a winner . . . which isn't actually true. But he set it up so the cashier at a nearby store would PRETEND it was. And he gave him $1,000 to give to the guy.
But the amazing part is how the homeless guy REACTS. First, he seems to think it's a mean joke or something. Then when the clerk actually gives him the cash, he tries to SPLIT IT with the guy who'd given him the ticket. But the guy refuses.
And the look on the homeless man's face is just amazing. Then he breaks down in tears. ( He finds out he's getting $1,000 at 1:08, tries to split it at 1:50, and starts crying around 2:00.)

The Wisconsin Department of Tourism has a new ad with KAREEM ABDUL-JABBAR and ROBERT HAYS, who played Ted Striker in "Airplane".
It's the two of them flying a plane and talking about how beautiful Wisconsin is. And the rest is basically them referencing lines from the movie.
I don't know. I think it's kinda lame......

Over the holidays, five different morning news shows in Wisconsin and Illinois had a guest on who called himself "Chef Keith". FOX 6 in Milwaukee was one of them. And he was promoting a book on what to do with leftovers.
But it turns out his real name is Nick Preuher, he DIDN'T write a book . . . and he's not even a chef.
He was just PRANKING morning news teams by making them try disgusting concoctions . . . including ham-pie-and-gravy SMOOTHIES, and mashed potato ice cream with corn sprinkles.
( He does the mashed potato ice cream at :25, does a terrible rap at 1:52, shows how to store his delicious smoothies in milk jugs at 2:10, and knocks over a table at 2:54.)

Southern California got more rain over the weekend, and the storm made for some pretty crazy waves in Santa Barbara on Saturday. There are two videos online of a huge wave hitting the side of a restaurant that's out on a pier.
And the water was so high, it shattered the WINDOWS, and started pouring in on customers. (Search for "Wave Crashes Through Restaurant Window in Santa Barbara" and "Large Wave Comes Through Restaurant.")
(Also, an NBC reporter named Miguel Almaguer reported from the scene of a mudslide just outside L.A. on Friday . . . while he was waist-deep in it. And he ended up having to be rescued by firefighters.)

We've heard of people in foreign countries who accidentally get pronounced DEAD then wake up at their funerals. You don't really see that happen in the U.S., where we generally can tell a dead person from a living one.
Around 9:00 P.M. on Wednesday night, the county coroner declared Walter Williams dead when he couldn't find a pulse.
Four hours later, employees at Porter and Sons Funeral Home in Lexington, Mississippi got to work and saw one of their dead bodies trying to KICK its way out of a BODY BAG.
Turns out Walter WASN'T DEAD . . . and he was just HOURS away from being embalmed.
The coroner is now blaming it on Walter's pacemaker malfunctioning. The county sheriff says, quote, "I asked the coroner what happened, and the only thing he could say is that it's a miracle."
Another miracle will be him not getting fired.
