From Obama slow-jamming to Ned Stark via Hitler, our pick of the best in YouTube this week
First published on 26 Apr 2012. Updated on 28 Apr 2012.
1. President Obama slow jams the news with Jimmy Fallon
Clearly we're liking Jimmy Fallon in the Time Out offices. You may not get all the policy stuff in this newsy slow jam – Pell Grants and whatnot – but for further evidence of Obama's cool factor, look no further. Or as Jimmy likes to call him, the "Preezy of the United Steezy".
2. David Attenborough's Planet Earth, narrated by kids
This week in adorable... comes this ad from BBC America. A gem.
3. Hitler finds out about Ned Stark [SPOILER]
Okay so this is pretty much the opposite of new (time tag: 2011) but we in the Time Out office rediscovered it this week, and with episode four of Game of Thrones season two being so squealingly good, we thought we'd throw it in. Watch this then imagine how Downfall Hitler would have reacted coming out of a screening of Psycho back in 1960.
4. A baby, doing pull-ups
We don't usually fall for the quirky-kid-doing-adult-activity-captured-by-a-parent-style thing, but we liked this. Maybe we're getting clucky, or we're just envying bub's biceps.
5. TNT's Push to add Drama ad
With almost 30 million YouTube hits, this is bona fide viral stuff. Someone at an ad agency just got a promotion. The premise is simple: there is a button in a quiet square in Belgium, and above it, a sign that says "push to add drama". People push, drama's added, millions click.
