I am beyond obsessed. Brody Ryan works at a Starbucks in the Los Angeles area. After noticing a Customer, Model Piper Kennedy who frequented his Store, he one day got her number and in an odd way of seducing her, he sent her a Video Message of him touching his face sensually as Drake‘s latest Single Hold On, We’re Going Home, plays in the background.
After Kennedy‘s Friend, DJ Ben Roc got his hands on the polarizingly-sensual message, he decided to post it to his Instagram account and from there, the Video has gone on to become a Viral Sensation with Parodies accumulating by the minute!
See what the Internet is freaking-out about below:
So odd. I can’t stop staring. Hypnotic!
All involved are getting an amazing amount of Publicity out of this – whether they want it or not – and the Hashtag #STARBUCKSDRAKEHAND has been spawned out of this brilliance, now trending the World by storm! Even expect a dramtic spike in Album and Singles sales for Drake, big-time.
Ryan, who is an aspiring Singer/Producer/Model/Photographer already is getting booked for Interviews, embracing the sudden wave of Fame. Follow him on Twitter!
This is quite possibly the most heartbreaking thing you’ll ever see. Sarah Varley recently captured this Clip of Husky Wiley, after visiting her Grandmother’s Grave with him and what has resulted is a mass debate whether or not Dogs are capable of grieving.
Some are skeptical, with comments like “i donno if to belive this or not, the dog could be sick or somthing. dogs dont cry like that” being posted in response to the Video. Some even are going as far as acting as Net Vets, diagnosing Wiley‘s condition stating, “he’s not crying, his nose is just irritated…my dog does that all the time when she’s outside. I do believe that this dog really does mourn but this is not crying”.
Having been separated from my own Dog Billy in the past, including a couple stays at the Hospital, my Mom can confirm that he indeed mourned our separation. He would whimper and wait by the door all day for me while I was away. His appetite would decrease and he’d refuse to eat. The implication of Dogs not being capable of mourning is well, ludicrous as Dogs have the mental capacity of a three-year-old Child. I’ve even witnessed myself times where my Mom and Dad visit and after it’s time for them to leave, he whimpers as if like a Child, expressing sadness. It might not be full-out sobbing as in the case of Wiley, but the possibility is indeed there and it is actually rather alarming that people can be so disconnected to not think that Animals too have the ability to express emotion.
Everyone’s doing the Harlem Shake, an Internet Meme which has taken the World by storm February 2013. What is the Harlem Shake you ask? Hot on the heels of Gangnam Style, it is the latest dance craze seen in viral Video Clips which are set to 30 seconds of the Track of the same name by Brooklyn-based Electronic Music Artist, Bauuer. The Videos start off with one person dancing, while all others around are oblivious to it. As soon as the Bass Line starts, we are put into sensory overload with others joining-in doing repeated (sometimes lewd) dance motions. Amazing.
YouTube Users DizastaMusic and The Sunny Skate (a Longboarding Crew from Australia) were among the first to start the craze, causing People to strip down to their undies shamelessly before the Camera!
See some of my favourite Harlem Shake Videos to surface so far, although I must say, hands-down the Maker Studios one is my favourite – rather sleek, wouldn’t you say?
