Back in June, Carly Rae Jepsen‘s hit single Call Me Maybe was just starting to become a viralviral sensation. Like so many other people online, the Miami Dolphins cheerleaders made their very own dance music video to the catchy tune which currently stands with over 14 million views.

Now, over seven months later, US troops in Afghanistan have sent  their own Call Me Maybe dance music video, a near perfect recreation of the cheerleaders’ choreography

NSFW Warning – gun violence and language. (It’s war for heaven’s sake!)

You may have forgotten, but, yes, America is still fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan. We’ve been there for so long, technologies that was once too expensive to equip soldiers with, such as helmet cameras, are now commonplace. More and more videos from combat are surfacing as a result. 

This video was just published by Raw Combat Footage Documentation, a channel hyper focused on combat videos, and the video has already garnered over half a million views in just a day.

A US soldier wearing a helmet camera was in a machine gun fire fight with the Taliban in Kunar province. When he decided to descend the mountain, he took heavy fire and was hit a total of four times. Luckily, no rounds penetrated his body armor, and he only suffered minor injuries. 

Some have blamed the soldier for getting shot, claiming he made the wrong decision to descend alone. Remember how easy that is to type while sitting in your comfy computer chair. 

The dramatic video is showcased on NYDailyNews, TimeMediaite, TheDailyWhat, and Mashable

Faux news channel –not to be confused with Fox New Channel–hit a viral home run with their latest ‘news report‘ from Afghanistan.

‘Autistic’ reporter Michael Falk is rightfully confused when the American troops he is interviewing say they are sad their four fellow soldiers were killed in a recent battle, but happy that twenty-three Taliban soldiers were killed. It’s all very confusing.

NSFW – language

America asks a lot from their servicemen and women, and in return give them the best available equipment possible. America also expects our troops to respect that equipment, especially when it’s a $20 million Apache helicopter. But that is not the case here. 

This foolish Apache pilot was showing off to his buddy soldiers in the snowy mountains of Afghanistan, prompting onlookers to appropriately react with, “Holy sh**!” Finally, the pilot took a dive a little too steep and hit the ground. It’s reported that everyone is OK, but the pilot will be facing criminal charges. The video is covered by BusinessInsider and Wired

Last week, American troops burned a bunch of Korans in Afghanistan, claiming there were secret codes in them being used by the enemy. After news of the burning broke out, the people of Afghanistan started to riot, prompting US military officials, and even President Obama to apologize for America’s actions.

But many Americans, including this woman, doesn’t think we should be apologizing for what’s going on in Afghanistan.  explains why she feels that way, and made this sarcastic apology to Afghanistan’s President Karzai which already has 340,000 views in just a three days since being published. 

 

Thanks Colin!
