Digital Trends’ top 5 viral videos of May 6, 2011

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!

Ninja Dog Attacks Cat

Where to begin with this one. The dog—which looks like it is half cow—decides to take a lesson from her rival, the cat, and go stealth. Like Sam Fisher in Splinter Cell, the enemy agent (the cat) is caught completely unaware as the dog attacks. The cat was fine, but if felines have pride, this one’s just took a whuppin’.

Obama TKOs Trump

It was a big week for President Obama. Last week he released the long form of his birth-certificate, to which possible Presidential rival Donald Trump ended his attacks just long enough to take credit for forcing the release. Then this week, Obama walked up to the microphones with a bit of a swagger and announced the death of Osama Bin Laden. But between the two events, he had time to rip Trump, and a handful of others a new one at the annual Press Dinner. If this were Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, you might be able to see the “TKO” over Trump’s head as the last jokes hit.

Snowmobiles and Gravity are Not BFFs

In the following video, this guy not only wipes out his snowmobile, he wipes the hell out of it, and is then forced to watch as it continues to wreck all the way down the mountain.

Taiwan Recreates Osama Bin Laden’s Lifestyle

The people responsible for the classic Tiger Woods domestic incident animation and the Darth Jobs clip are back to recreate what Bin Laden’s life was like before he met SEAL Team Six. The inclusion of the American robots and their spaceship is anyone’s guess.

Why Parkour Fans are so Hard to Insure

You know when you watch a movie like Jackass and you see that disclaimer warning you “not to try these stunts at home”? These guys didn’t listen, much to the chagrin of hospitals and the joy of internet video fans.

With only one month remaining in 2023, Netflix is releasing a series of high-profile movies that will likely join the list of the most popular movies on the service. Todd Haynes' May December and Bradley Cooper's Maestro will be major players this awards season, especially at the Oscars. On the blockbuster side, Zack Snyder returns with the space opera Rebel Moon, his first film in two years.

There are thousands of movies to watch on Netflix besides the new releases. Many of these movies are quite good, but they can be underseen because of their placement on the homepage. For December, we curated a list of five underrated movies on Netflix you need to watch. Our selections include a 1990s-style action movie, a war thriller, and a gritty cop drama.

Where to watch The Family Stone
The cast of The Family Stone.

There are plenty of heartwarming family Christmas movies that will just make you feel good to have loved ones. The Family Stone is not one of those movies, although it's definitely a Christmas flick! This 2005 dramady tends to veer more toward drama than comedy, but there are definitely a lot of funny moments at the expense of Meredith Morton (Sarah Jessica Parker). Meredith is the girlfriend of Everett Stone (Dermot Mulroney), and she is dreading the idea of spending the holidays with the Stone family because she doesn't fit in with her potential in-laws. And the family really doesn't like Meredith at all.

Desperate for any kind of emotional backup, Meredith calls her sister, Julie Morton (Claire Danes), to join her for Christmas with the Stone family. But much to everyone's surprise, Everett and Julie soon start to show more chemistry as a couple than Meredith does with her own boyfriend. That's only one of the reasons why there's going to be an emotional reckoning before this Christmas is over.

The cast of Christmas With the Kranks.

Christmas can be overwhelming even for the best of us, so it's understandable why some people choose not to celebrate the season. In 2001, legal thriller writer John Grisham embraced that idea with his novel Skipping Christmas, which was subsequently adapted by screenwriter Chris Columbus and director Joe Roth as the perennial holiday film,Christmas with the Kranks, which hit theaters in 2004.

The Santa Clauses' Tim Allen and Halloween Ends star Jamie Lee Curtis portray the titular couple, Luther and Nora Krank, both of whom are surprised when they are transformed into the neighborhood pariahs just because they want to skip Christmas in favor of a Caribbean cruise. Since their daughter, Blair (Julie Gonzalo), joined the Peace Corps and moved away, the Kranks refuse to budge when it comes to not decorating their home for the holidays. But when Blair announces that she'll be home for Christmas, the Kranks have to make peace with their neighbors and quickly put together the Christmas party and decorations that used to be their holiday tradition.
