Digital Trends top 5 viral videos of the week november 19 2010 favorable lie

We are back with a new selection of videos to tickle your fancy. These videos are not all from this week, but they all made us laugh or caused our jaws to drop recently. Enjoy!

A Favorable Lie

Despite the fact that they keep misspelling favorable as “favourable”, the English take their golf seriously, and a favorable lie is not to be ignored. In the video below, a man confronts the one of the most common problems that a golfer faces: what to do when a giant alligator climbs up onto the fairway and gets in the way of an otherwise impressive lie. It has happened to us all. Check out the somewhat unorthodox, but effective solution.

Kilian Martin dominates his skateboards

There have been a ton of skate videos on the intertubes over the last few years, which makes sense—after all, what better medium to share a series of short, but impressive movements than the internet, which loves short, impressive things. There are a ton of jokes to be had from that, but this is serious business. In a video field crowded with impressive skate moves, Kilian Martin still manages to rise above and deliver some jaw dropping clips.

Soccer team tries to murder ref

This is about a year and a half old, but watching refs flip out, knock out players, then run for their lives never gets old. Perhaps even better than the flying kick the ref dodges, is the fact that he manages to outrun an entire soccer team with ease.

Welcome Home

Have you ever gotten off a plane and been greeted by a loved one excited to see you? Maybe they have a welcome home sign or something? That’s bush league. Check out this ad filmed at Heathrow from T-Mobile UK, as they show you how to truly greet someone at the airport.

As a native of Kansas I can only shake my head in shame at this ridiculous video from my home state of people being idiots and jamming a horse into a car. It’s a horse! They have the ability to cover distances under their own power, that’s kinda their thing! Now, horse trailers are expensive and all, but there is a point where practicality just can’t justify pure stupidity. Although the video below seems to disagree.
