 Thug Notes is a brand new YouTube channel parodying the popular Spark Notes summaries every high school students uses to aid their book reporting. 

As their name suggests, they put a ‘thug’ twist on the concept. 

Their first two videos, offering the Thug Notes on the classic English novels Crime And Punishment and The Great Gatsby, went nearly unnoticed after their debut, standing with only 90,000 views combined today. 

But their latest episode, where Sparky Sweets offers a summary of the classic book To Kill A Mockingbird, has exploded online just this week.

Already, the parody video has amassed over a quarter million views, and is featured on  TheDailyWhat, TheFW, DailyOfTheDay, and TheAwesomer

One of the most iconic scenes from the popular dino-movie Jurassic Park is when the heroes speed away in their Jeep from a stampeding T-Rex, often looking back at the approach monster in fear.

Henk Roos experienced a similar situation in real life first hand! He says that after his wedding, he and his new wife went on a game drive in South Africa and a very hormonal giraffe started chasing them. 

He quickly took out his camera to record the tall giraffe chasing after them just like in the movies. 

“You can see how he gets closer and closer after every turn,” he says.

Thankfully, once the giant got took close, the ranger simply banged on his Jeep to frighten it away. 

Though the video was published a month ago, it has only gone viral now, appearing on LaughingSquid, SayOMGHuffPost, and Mirror

These days, if a young musician or singer wants to follow their dreams and become a rock star, they usually go to a Got Talent show, such as American Idol, Britain’s Got Talent, or The Voice

But back in the day, musicians just became famous the old fashion way. For performing music that spoke to the people. 

As an interesting and fun experiment, Failuresville edited old footage of John Lennon performing his timeless classic Imagine on stage of The Voice. 

Naturally, the judges think Lenon was a little over the top and none of them choose to hit their red button.
