Now, we’re crying again. This time, our tears are for a heartfelt life insurance commercial. The video shows a man who consistently does good deeds for others. Often, he sacrifices his own time, efforts, and money to help those in need.
For most of the video, strangers shake their head as he gives up all of his money to beggars on the street. By the end of the commercial, we are able to see what the kind-hearted man gains in return for his good deeds.
The video, which has gathered over 5 million views is winning the hearts of many. Watch the it below and let us know if it pulls at your heartstrings.
If you’ve ever been on an airplane, you’re probably more than familiar with the standard, federally regulated safety procedures that the stewards and stewardesses explain at the start of every flight (cue hand motions to indicate where the emergency exits are). It’s customary and expected, but, let’s be honest, it can be a little dry. Though we fully appreciate and are very grateful for the explanations, sometimes we can zone out.
But Virgin America has changed all of that with this 5-minute clip that is slowly becoming a viral hit. It’s being promoted as the first domestic pre-flight safety video set to song, and to be completely honest, IT’S AMAZING.
Under the eye of Asian American director Jon M. Chu (Step Up franchise, GI Joe: Retaliation), the video is set in a airplane hanger, with bright lights, a fancy dance routine and the catchiest Motown-esque track — complete with a rap break. The video will play on Virgin America flights, according to Variety.
Though the video was just released on the 29th, it’s already racked up over 140,000+ hits. With viewers already loving it, combining entertainment with safety has already “taken off” without a glitch. Wanna take a peek, just take a look below! And in their words (and we quote), get ready to “buckle up to get down.”
Back in a time long, long ago, marriage proposals were simple ordeals. You would bring your partner to some place special, get down on one knee, promise the world to them and just like that you were engaged. Simple right?
Well the rise in social media has made marriage proposals everything but simple. Now that we can all see each other’s method of proposing, expectations have shot up. As much as we hate to admit it, we now have grand daydreams of the extravagant moment when our hand will be asked in marriage. This leaves our poor suitor to shake their head at every new marriage proposal that goes viral. What is it this time? A proposal via hot air balloon? A flashmob? Fireworks? Whatever it may be, you can bet it’s elaborate.
A few months ago, we posted a video that turned heads. A woman asked her boyfriend to marry her with her own elaborate planning. But now, we’ve found a proposal that gives the phrase “over-the-top” a new meaning.
Creator of history’s most elaborate marriage proposal is Justin Baldoni. He arranged for his then-girlfriend, Emily Foxler , to meet him at the restaurant where they had their first date. There she finds a giant projected video of her soon-to-be groom explaining that he is not standing her up. He’s doing the opposite.
And this begins a 27-minute long proposal including everything from music videos, flashmobs, and movie trailers. Is it squeal-worthy or is it cringe-worthy? Some women are left in joyful tears and ask if Baldoni has a twin brother. Others have commented, “It makes those last 12 scenes of the Lord of the Rings film trilogy seem positively succinct, and it crosses the line between devoting noticeable time and effort to something and wasting half of your soon-to-be fiancee’s evening.”
Whatever your opinion may be, Baldoni succeeded with getting his love to accept his very epic proposal. Baldoni tells Inside Edition, “I am someone who I loves grand gestures. I love expressing my love in big ways.”
Even more surprising is the guest appearance of Korean American actor James Kyson. The 27-year-old, who is most known for his character Ando Masahashi on the NBC television series Heroes, is a must see in this video. Kyson dancing to Nsync, Boy II Men and Dancing Queen? Check it out for yourself:
If there’s one thing we can never get sick of here at Audrey – it’s wedding proposal videos. In the latest edition of adorable and heart wrenching wedding proposal videos – Vicky decides to take a step to where not many woman have ventured before – propose to her boyfriend of eight years. Jon had proposed to her more than once before, but she had always turned him down since she wasn’t ready before. Well, what better way to let him know that she was ready – by proposing herself.
Props to you Vicky – you’re one courageous woman. On the sweet side of it, Jon also has a surprise for her as well. Watch on!
(On a side note, is it just me, but the usage of ‘A Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri gets me EVERYTIME.)
I’m a sucker for wedding videos. Ones that include touching speeches, wacky father-daughter dance sequences, wedding party dance sequences – you name it. However, this particular video has been making the rounds today – and for good reason.
The guys over at Super Frog Saves Tokyo (haha, love the name) put together this video compilation of the slow motion video booth they set up at the wedding of Quang and Ellie. I mean, what kinds of things could happen at a slow motion booth? Watch the video – and you’ll be pleasantly amused.
And hopefully you aren’t sick of this year’s summer anthem “Blurred Lines” just yet, but it’s the perfect song choice for the things that go down in this video.
