Aussie Dad Built A Giant Laughing Kookaburra To ‘Cheer Us Up’

Published

What a kook…aburra.

There are days during quarantine where I’ll jog twenty blocks and come home feeling super productive. Then I see a Tweet about a man who built a 1,600 pound, giant, laughing kookaburra and I realize I have no idea what productivity really is.

Artist Dr. Farvadin Daliri from the city of Townsville, Australia, began building the giant laughing bird last Christmas. When the quarantine was put into place, however, Daliri really kicked his construction into high gear and used his free time to complete the kookaburra. The massive fowl measures nearly 15 feet tall and 28 feet wide and has become the talk of the town…sville. Daliri told the Guardian “People just adore it. A lot of people overlooked from the roadside and saw this huge monster sitting here and wanted to know what it is.”

As for why the doctor built the bird in the first place the answer is quite simple, to spread joy. Daliri told Buzzfeed “I wanted to make something out of the ordinary to cheer us up, relieve our stress and make us optimistic.” What better way to cheer people up then by spreading laughter, literally! This isn’t Daliri’s first time at the giant animal rodeo either as he has constructed giant koalas and snakes to showcase at a cultural festival in his hometown. This is the first time the artist has gone viral, however, as his daughter’s Tweet has already garnered over a hundred thousand likes.

TikToker Goes Viral As He Transforms Into Favorite Superheroes In Amazing Video

Slap a cape on this video because it’s just super.

TikTok videos are like Halloween costumes. Some are cute, some are scary but 9 out of 10 are just plain bad. So it’s exciting when a video from the social platform goes viral for being so well done and that’s exactly what happened with Julian Bass.

On his account @TheJulianBass, Bass shared a video of himself transforming into three different superheroes. The first is a Jedi, the second is Ben10 and the third is Spiderman. Not only are the costumes impressive but so are the special effects. The Jedi slices through the scene to cut to Ben10 who transforms into a computer animated alien who backflips into Spiderman. Trust me, it’s so much cooler than some awkward dance challenge.

In less than a day the post has already garnered over 1.7 million views on TikTok and a whopping 10million views on Twitter. On Twitter Bass wrote “if y’all can retweet this enough times that Disney calls, that’d be greatly appreciated.” Get on this Disney!

Randy Rainbow Wants You To ‘Cover Your Freakin’ Face’ In Hilarious New Parody

Published

Is it really such a daunting task to wear a freakin’ mask?!

I don’t know about you but my preferred method of learning is through song. If they put the pythagorean theorem to the tune of the ABC’s I might have actually passed high school geometry. Well perhaps the board of education could take a few notes from Randy Rainbow because his latest viral video is teaching everyone an important lesson all to the tune of “Put On A Happy Face.”

The comedian’s latest post tackles the unreasonably controversial subject of wearing a mask during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. While I’m not entirely sure why there are people who want to put their health and the health of others at risk, Rainbow uses his signature style of comedy singing to ask everyone to sincerely “Cover Your Freakin’ Face.” The video takes place at a presidential press hearing where Trump speaks about his refusal to mask up which leaves Rainbow with no choice but to burst into song. Wasn’t it Newton that said “Singing is fundamental”?

The over 3-minute video is filled with hilarious quips to the president such as “so back up gurl, don’t get in my space and cover your freakin’ face.” And this friendly reminder, “it’s not taboo, think of your poor old ailing nana she’s counting on you.” The list goes on and on but the message is clear, wear a mask!

Check out the hilarious video below!

The dress has gone viral.

Lots of seniors missed out on prom night this year due to the school closures that occurred when the coronavirus began sweeping the globe. What’s to miss though really, a night filled with mediocre chicken marsala and overwhelming panic about where to put your hands while dancing with someone that makes you stutter every time you speak? Ugh, I miss high school. In any event, one high school senior didn’t let the unfortunate circumstances of 2020 stop her from creating a truly amazing prom dress and she has now gone viral for her epic design.

Peyton Manker created a coronavirus-inspired prom dress after her dad told her about an interesting scholarship contest. The contest guidelines were simple; make an entire prom dress out of only duct tape. The Illinois senior spent over 400-hours detailing her masterpiece and created shoes, a mask, a purse and accessories to match. The dress is filled with intricate portraits displaying frontline workers, people in masks and even a tribute to the graduating class. Her purse is designed to look like a coronavirus cell, which you know we will see on every shelf at H&M in six months. No word on whether Manker won the scholarship but her dress has definitely caught the attention of the internet.
