Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield has served the Internet and nerd community well while on the International Space Station, creating many entertaining and educational viral videos directly from Space.

Before his return, he thought it fitting to end with some music. Obviously, few songs are more appropriate to cover in Space than David Bowie’s Space Oddity.

This is also happens to be a world record as the first music video recorded on the ISS and in Space in general.

The best, most advanced visual effects and computer graphics can’t compete with a real zero gravity environment.

Few scenes can trump Hadfield singing, “Planet Earth is blue and there’s nothing left to do,” with a very blue Mother Earth literally behind him.

The resulting music video is truly stunning, and has instantly caught viral fever, already appearing on CBSNews, CNet, and TheVerge.

Targa Newfoundland is a long road rally race held over seven days in Canada. In this video from a past Targa event, a Subaru WRX STi locked up while taking a turn, and slammed head on into a home.

Incredibly, the passenger immediately disembarked from his ride, and when questioned by the cameraman if he was ok, simply chirped, “Ya, we’re good.”

Thankfully, the “safety equipment did its job.”

Though the video video published over a year ago by RightDrive.ca, it has just experienced a second surge of viral viewership over the weekend.

Nicolas Cage is one of those Hollywood celebrities fans love to bash online, in a friendly manner of course. Apparently, that applies to Europe as well.

In this short video, Dutch comedian Ronald Goedemondt performs a hilarious imitation of Nick Cage seeing a ghost while visiting the museum.

Though KKOPPI published the video at the end of 2012, it has only exploded, amassing over 1.2 million views, over the past week.

Adorably suspenseful videos of a mother duck separated from her young ducklings by an obstruction is nothing new online.

Over the weekend, Jenny Pan happened upon a mother duck on campus with her ducklings stuck on a tiny ledge.

Well, tiny to us humans, but a terrifying cliff to the ducklings. After two dramatic minutes, the ducklings daringly jump down to mom, one by one.

In just a few days, the video has already garnered over 150,000 views.

As their name suggests, Amsterdam In Video specializes in all things Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Over the weekend, their first video to go viral hit the trending charts, amassing 85,000 views in just a matter of days.

In the short video, which roughly translates to Helmsmanship the canal, an extremely long passenger boat attempts to make too sharp of a turn to Amsterdam’s narrow canals. To a passerby, the boat seemed to be heading directing into the canal wall! 

But at the last moment, the captain turned the engines to the left as far as possible and hit the gas. Incredibly, the boat sailed through the narrow canal without even the slightest hiccup.

YouTuber ForsakenMadMan appropriately retitles the video, “Amsterdam drift.”
