A police man, an impersonator, and the Sorry song kept netizens busy through the week
There’s nothing quite heartwarming like seeing a tough guy show his softer side. In this video, uploaded a week ago (with over a million views), a police officer is seen teaching a girl to play hopscotch in the Huntington Beach city of Orange County, California. After giving her a demonstration, and telling her the rules, the officer encourages her to play. And even though she steps on the lines (a rule that can disqualify the player), he tells her he’ll let it go as it’s her first time. The officer and his partner reached the spot after calls about a suspicious car parked in the neighbourhood, only to discover that a mother and her 11-year-old-daughter were living out of it. While one of the officers tried to figure out a way to get a roof over their head, the other decided to entertain the child.
Walmart checkout clerk Brandon Olderbak was going about his daily business, when a customer Victoria Twombly, decided to film him doing a flawless impersonation of Shaggy and Scooby Doo. She uploaded it on YouTube late last week and a few days later, Olderbak had turned into an Internet celebrity. The 33-second video shows Olderbak staging a fake conversation between Shaggy and Scooby, much to the amusement of Twombly. Almost identical to the two iconic cartoon characters’ voices, the biggest draw is his imitation of Scooby’s goofy laugh. The 30-year-old later went on People Now and revealed that it’s something he does while at work all the time.
The cover of Justin Bieber’s Sorry can’t get more desi than the one by Canada-based Dance With SL crew. The Internet is loving the West-meets-East, hip hop-meets-Bollywood, bhangra, and bharatanatyam remix of the chart topper. The mash-up, which has garnered more than 3,74,002 YouTube views since it was uploaded on March 30, was done jointly by choreographer Shereen Ladha, and producer J Raj. The result is a lot of colour, and quirks, thanks to an ensemble of turbans, ghaghras, and active wear. We loved this apology, or Maafi, as they have titled it.
