WATCH | Care Home Residents Take Part In Viral TikTok Videos

During the pandemic, care and nursing home residents and staff have been particularly hard hit. The fact that we are not allowed to see our relatives has taken its toll not only on the morale of residents but the family members of residents as well. 

Like many of you, I have not been able to visit my family member who is currently in a care home. I haven’t been able to hug my 101-year-old grandad since the lockdown started all those months ago.

Gazing through a two-inch gap in the window can never be the same as giving him a reassuring hug. We can only hope that it won’t be long now until there is a rapid COVID test that will once again allow us to hug and cuddle our loved-ones who are in care homes. 

One of the most challenging jobs for care home staff has been to keep their residents motivated. I know that the team at my grandad’s care home work incredibly hard under difficult conditions to try and keep his morale up. They do a fantastic job. I admire anyone who works in a care/nursing home – I really do. 

TikTok Saves The Day!

But one care home has taken to making TikTok videos as a way to help stimulate the morale of their residents. And they seem to have gone down a treat judging by the viewing stats of one of the videos which was uploaded to social media recently. 

In the TikTok video (below), residents take on a cameo role as Dolly Parton’s ‘Working 9-5’ hit song plays in the background. The short video (below) has been viewed over 367k times which is quite impressive. There are plenty of other videos too which have been uploaded by @emmathackray who works at the home. And the residents seem to love taking part in them! 

Please have a look for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments below!

WATCH | Lads In Fake ‘Police’ Car Drive Up On Couple In Dark Car Park

A public video has surfaced on TikTok which shows the moment when three lads drive up to a car in the middle of nowhere before turning on a blue light and siren.

In the one minute video, the lads can be seen driving up towards the car as one of them tells the driver to put his high-beam on in an attempt to illuminate a vehicle that was parked in a beauty spot.

The video starts at the same time as one of the passengers says: ‘its the police coming through’ (referring to the fact that they have illegally fitted/activated a blue light and siren to/on their car).

Another lad in the vehicle can be heard to say: ‘We’re gonna pull them over..watch this…they’re gonna get it…they’re gonna s**t themselves from our blue light’.

As they get nearer to the parked car, one of the lads tells the driver to turn on his high beam as they drive towards the vehicle. He then says to the driver: ‘do it now’ as the driver turns on a siren and blue light that appears to be fitted to the windscreen.

The trio then stops next to the red car, turn the siren off and leave the blue lights flashing as they wait for the occupants of the red vehicle to get out of the car.

The front seat passenger then reaches for a public address system that has also been fitted to the car and says: ‘hello, can you step out of the vehicle please…can you pull yourself out of the vehicle…what are you doing there?’.

At this point, a female exits the vehicle from the front passenger side followed a few seconds later by a male who exits the car from the front driver’s seat.

One of the passengers in the fake ‘police’ vehicle then tells the driver to pull away before the male who was in the red vehicle gets to the fake ‘cop car’.

One of the males then says to the male who was in the red car: ‘I had you there didn’t I’ as they all leave the scene, laughing as they drive off.

Using blue lights and sirens on a vehicle that is not an emergency vehicle can land you in some serious trouble with the law.

WATCH | Dog Owners Drills Eye & Nose Holes In Fence For Her Two Pooches

If you own a dog (or are owned by a dog) and you also happen to have a garden, then you are probably acutely aware of just how much enjoyment dogs get from trying to work out who is passing by their territory. 

Some dogs will try and smash down their owner’s fence or will try and dig an epic tunnel under their owner’s fence just to get a glimpse of the stranger walking past their yard. But the dog will invariably end up getting some sort of cut or bruise on their nose as they try to understand who is brave enough to dare to come within a mile of their territory.

But one dog owner has come up with a solution. She decided to grab a power tool and drill a total of six holes in her fence. This now means that when she comes home, or when someone passes by her house, then her dogs can have a look (and sniff) at who it is!

WATCH | This Is Why You Should Never Ride Through Roadworks

As a keen motorcyclist myself, then I know just how many perks there are when it comes to darting along the road on two wheels rather than four. Top of the list of these ‘perks’ is the fact that you do not have to sit in stationary traffic. 

Of course, you always get ‘that’ motorist who cannot handle the fact that being on two wheels means that you can slip between the traffic rather than having to spend your precious hours sat in mind-numbingly-boring gridlock traffic. So you always have to be on the look-out for people intentionally trying to knock you off of your bikes as you make steady progress through miles and miles of traffic.

Riding a bike through traffic is great in the cool weather, but when it is swelteringly hot and you are moving at a slow pace whilst wearing your motorcycle helmet gloves and heavy jacket then you sometimes do wish that you were sat in a nice cool air-conditioned car, even if that car isn’t going anywhere because it is stuck in traffic! 

Another ‘perk’ that comes with being on two wheels rather than four, is the fact that you can slip through tiny gaps which you would have no hope of getting through if you were in a car. I am talking here about the sort of gap that is created by road signs and bollards which are there to stop traffic from passing a particular area. 

A prime example of this is the road furniture, signs and bollards which are put on the road to stop cars from driving over newly poured wet concrete. 

In the video below, one motorcyclist got a bit stuck after he/she decided to slip through the gap of some bollards which had been put on the road to keep motorists away from a fresh patch of wet, sticky concrete. And, as you would expect, loads of people were on hand to film the encounter. 

After the motorcyclist became stuck in the wet concrete, only one person (probably a fellow biker) from the construction crew who were on the scene, tried to help the stricken biker. For 50 seconds, the person filming the incident captures the awkward attempts of the motorcyclist as he tried to free his bike from the sticky, quick-drying cement

I bet he spent the next eight months meticulously cleaning the bike in an attempt to try and get all of that nasty dirt of his beautiful machine. He must have gone through at least 50 motorbike cleaning kits!

WATCH | Police Driver Loses Control Of Vehicle On Wet Road

Even professional drivers can fall victim to the sort of unseen slippery road surfaces which can cause you to lose control of your vehicle.

In the video below, a police car that was on a blue-light run overtakes a vehicle at a relatively slow speed before making a sharp left. 

It might seem like an odd manoeuvre (i.e. overtaking a car before a left turn), but we don’t know if, for example, the driver was pursuing a vehicle and had to make a last-minute change of direction. 

Or the driver of the police car could have been given a last-minute updated location to head towards during what could have been a fast-moving situation following an emergency call being made by a member of the public.

As the police vehicle completes its manouvere, the tyres of the car lose traction, and it ends up ploughing into the crash barrier. 

The startled motorist that had just been overtaken by the police car initially stops behind the police car before overtaking it and then pulling over to make sure that the driver is ok.

It just goes to show that even professional drivers can get caught out by dodgy road conditions – especially when there has been an oil or diesel spill on the road. 

Thankfully, the officer driving the car was not seriously injured.

WATCH | Older Brother Uses Treasure Hunt To Ask Younger Brother With Down Syndrome To Be His Best Man

At a time when there is so much hate and negativity floating around the planet, finding a genuinely ‘heart warming’ story can be quite hard. 

But, we think we have found one such spirit-lifting piece. 

The story and video revolves around the moment when a man asked his younger brother to be his best man at his wedding.

Will Claussen, 24, has an extremely close bond with his younger brother, Henry. 

22-year-old Henry has Down Syndrome, which is a genetic condition where the individual affected has an extra chromosome in their DNA. 

Will wanted to make the occasion an extra special one for his little brother. So he staged a ‘treasure hunt’ and hid a bottle under the sand that had a very special message in it. 

At first, when Henry found the bottle, he thought that it was a prank. But his brother urged him to open the bottle and read the message contained within it. 

As Henry unfurled the paper and saw the message, then he knew that what he had found was indeed something special. 

It was a note, written by his brother, asking Henry to be his best man. 

The heartwarming note said:

“Henry Joe, you are already the BEST bro, and my very BEST frand, so will you please say yes and be my BEST man?”

Of course, Henry said ‘yes’ and immediately jumped into his brother’s arms whilst saying ‘I love you’. 

The video, filmed by Will’s fiancee has been viewed millions of times.

Will, who is from Mankato, Minnesota, had been planning the unique message in a bottle since he proposed to his fiancee, AJ. He knew that he wanted to ask his brother in a way that he would never forget. 

Will said:

“I always knew that Henry was going to be my best man. We have been pretty much inseparable since he was born.

“I decided to use one of his favourite hobbies, metal detecting, as a way to ask him to be my best man”. 

Will mapped out the day so Henry would find the bottle with its unique message while out with his metal detector at the family’s log cabin by Ten-Mile lake in Hackensack, Northern Minnesota.

“Henry was beginning to worry he was going to get left out of the wedding party – he was so happy when he read the message” Will added.

When asked how he felt about the video going viral Will said it was “crazy” but he was glad that he and his brother had “spread some positivity and happiness”.

AJ and Will, who met at college, have been together for two-and-a-half years and plan to get married next summer.

At the end of the video, even the family dog seemed to want to get involved with the celebrations as she came running down the hill towards the happy duo. 

During these troubling and uncertain times, it is great to be able to share such a heart-warming story.

WATCH | Girl Rescued By Ocean-Going Ferry After Floating Out To Sea On A Unicorn

A young girl had a fortunate escape from an almost inevitable tragedy after she was spotted by an ocean-going ferry as she floated out to sea on an inflatable unicorn. 

The young girl, estimated to be around five-years-old, was spotted by the crew and passengers of the vessel around 1000 metres off the Greek coast. 

The young girl had been playing in the sea on a beach in Antirio when sea currents and the wind blew her offshore. 

A video posted on social media, filmed by one of the passengers on the ferry, shows the moment when the captain of the ferry and his crew pulled the girl out of the sea.

In the video (below), the crew can be seen to lower the ramp at the front of the large vessel before hauling the girl to safety.  

Captain Karneses said that he was navigating his usual route when he received a call from the coastguard asking if he or any of his crew had spotted a girl floating on a giant inflatable unicorn. 

He told Skai TV:

‘The child was flabbergasted. 

‘She was terrified, and that’s why she grabbed so firmly onto her inflatable swing ring.

The captain played down claims that he was a ‘hero’. He said:

‘I’m obligated to do it, not because of the nature of my work, but as a person. 

‘There is no need for someone to thank me. I did something that any one of us would do’.

Safety campaigners have long voiced their concerns regarding the use of inflatable toys on the sea. 

It only takes a moderate current and slight winds for an inflatable toy to be taken out to sea; often with tragic consequences.

WATCH | Fly Tippers Get A Shock After Dumping 200 Tyres On Farmers Land

Fly tippers love nothing more than to dump other peoples rubbish pretty much anywhere they can. You will often find idyllic spots ruined by the numpties who get paid in cash to dump other peoples rubbish. 

Which is why it is crucial to make sure that, if you do need some rubbish disposed of, then you always use a properly registered rubbish clearance company.

But one landowner managed to get his own back on the individuals who picked his land to dump over 200 tyres. 

A CCTV camera picked up the moment when at least one male decided to off-load his rubbish onto the hardworking farmers land. 

A few enquires then led to a property which the landowner believed belonged to someone who was connected with the fly-tipping. 

So the farmer decided to get some lads together, collect the tyres and then dump them in the front garden of the individual who the landowner believed was responsible for dumping the rubbish onto his land. 

It’s videos like this one which brightens our day because they show the beauty of karma in action.

WATCH | Dog Walking On Two Legs Takes Owner Out For A Stroll

We all know that dogs are intelligent. Not only are they bright, but they are reasonably agile when it comes to jumping around. 

And now a video has been shared on social media of a brown and white dog that appears to be taking its owner for a walk, rather than the other way around. 

The dog can be seen ‘walking’ on its two legs as its human comrade attempts to try and keep up with her. 

It is almost as if the dog is jogging on its back legs. 

The video was uploaded to TikTok and was recorded by someone who was sat in their vehicle when the dog-human-duo ran by.

WATCH | Idiot Makes Shop Assistant Cry After After He Refused To Wear A Mask

A video has emerged on Twitter of the moment when a male makes a shop assistant cry after he refused to wear a mask and started to record the awkward encounter. 

The video has been shared not by the person who filmed it (as that person appears to have deleted their Twitter account) but by someone else. 

In the video, the male starts by pointing his phone at a startled shop assistant. He asks her: ‘Would you like to say that again?’

The bemused member of staff walks over to her colleague and says: ‘he is recording me’. 

It would appear that the member of staff who the male is filming had just asked him if he wanted a mask (because he was not wearing one, despite the government’s rules). 

The amateur ‘videographer’ then walks over to her colleague and says: ‘its ok; she just asked me to place a mask on so I thought that I would record it, thats all’. 

The male shop assistant, walking away from the person filming, says ‘thats fine’. 

The person filming then says: ‘do I still have to wear a mask? Cos i’m just shopping in the shop mate that’s all. I have just walked in and been told to wear a mask by some woman I don’t even know’.

The male then walks up to another female shop assistant and, pointing the camera at her face, says: ‘Are you still telling me to wear a mask?’.

The shop assistant clearly distressed over the male aggressive, and gruff demeanour says: ‘I haven’t said anything to you’. 

The argumentative and aggressive male then said: ‘You have just said to me, ‘would you like to wear a mask’.

The shop assistant replies: ‘that wasn’t me’. 

The belligerent male then asserts to the startled shop assistant: ‘Are you forcing me to wear a mask?’. 

The shop assistant replies: ‘I haven’t forced you to do anything’. 

‘So why are you asking me to wear a mask’ the male replies. 

The shop assistant then becomes physically upset as the moronic male continues to film her. 

He then says: ‘Why are you getting upset for? I would suggest that you go and calm yourself down and go outside and relax. Don’t come to customers and tell them what to do, for shopping’.

As the upset shop assistant is led away by a colleague, the idiot then says to her: ‘And sort your emotions out first, before you get a job’, as he still films her. 

What the muppet who is filming the encounter appears not to have comprehended, is that the shop assistant who offered him a mask (because he is ignoring the rules and is not wearing one) was not the same shop assistant who he then made cry. 

It would seem as if the idiot filming thought that perhaps he could become the next ‘big thing’ on social media by making a mountain out of a molehill. 

When, in reality, he has just made himself look silly, as highlighted by the hundreds of comments on the video. 

Most people with a bit of common sense and decency will wear a mask because they know that it can help to stop the spread of the virus. 

Obviously, anyone with medical conditions which prevent them from wearing a mask is excluded from the life-saving rules.

But this moron just seemed to be intent on causing an argument with people who were just doing their job.
