80 Facts about the ’80s
This has to be a record for Mental Floss… 80 facts in one video! I guess if you’re going to cover something as awesome as the 80’s you need to do it well.
Star Wars vs DC Marvel Final Epic Trailer
The same guy that made that awesome Star Wars vs Star Trek trailer (which we shared last week) has struck gold again! This time with an epic trailer that features Star Wars vs Superheroes. The funny thing… Disney owns all the rights to these franchises so this could totally happen.
Ping Pong Trick Shots 2
Dude Perfect is well known for their elaborate trick shot videos. This week it appears they’ve teamed up with Wal-Mart and Pringles (’cause how else could you afford to do such an expensive video) to make another Ping Pong Trick Shots video.
Love from Land Rover
This Valentine’s Day, one Land Rover Defender fan in New Zealand got one of the coolest gifts ever. I consider myself a car guy and I love this video, but I have to admit, that up until a few years ago, I thought Land Rover and Range Rover were two different car companies. </shame>
LEGO Mini Cooper Time-Lapse
I’ve been waiting all week to share this one, but I thought I’d wait and throw it up on the Fave Five list. If haven’t guessed what it’s about by the title, just watch the video.

Jimmy Kimmel and his wife Molly have a beloved holiday tradition with John Krasinski (Jim Halpert from the Office) and Emily Blunt – they play pranks on each other. Last year the Kimmels thought they would end the shenanigans by “taking it to another level.” This year John and Emily got Jimmy. Multiple times. The only way the pranks could’ve been any better was if they had put Jimmy’s SUV in jello.

Improv Everywhere surprised a random family by Christmas caroling with a 20-person brass orchestra and a 13-member choir.
Epic Christmas Caroling
Computer equipment and LEDs have gotten so cheap that now nearly anyone can decorate their house at Christmas and put on a really good show. Few have taken it to this level though. The Force is strong with Tom. (if you look closely, you can see the instruments are playing the real notes!)
Star Wars Christmas Light Show
The Piano Guys, Peter Hollens, David Archuleta, and The Mormon Tabernacle Choir get together to sing “Angels We Have Heard On High.” They’re also helped out by over 1,000 people to bring this beautiful Christmas hymn to life.
Angels We Have Heard on High
