Never mind Hump Day, TGIF eh? Just another few days to squeeze in that last-minute Christmas shopping, those parties and all of that never-ending wrapping of presents. Why not take 10 minutes and wander through our look at the best videos of the week where, for your delight, we bring you some cats, some mice, some beer, some Lego and a Dr Who/Sherlock Holmes piece of Fanfic that will make you giddy, if you’re into that kind of thing. Happy Friday!
Friskies promise to donate one can of cat food to animal shelters and rescue organizations around the U.S for every view the following video receives. Featuring Grumpy Cat, Colonel Meow, Oskar the Blind Cat amongst others, it’s already passed 600k views in a couple of days. Hurrah!
Oh nothing, just an actual mouse DECORATING A CHRISTMAS TREE!
I missed this last week so am sneaking it in here because it absolutely deserves to be seen. Watch as the famous Blues Brothers Shopping Mall scene gets recreated in Lego. Outstanding.

In the first of our Slacktory featured videos, they put the wind up everyone by reminding us that 1994 happened very nearly 20 years ago. Bruce Springsteen’s “Philadelphia” is 20 years old! How is that possible? Sit back and mourn the loss of your youth with these reminders of a year when “Speed” topped the box office charts and George Clooney was still a Dr in “E.R”.
It’s Christmas, so of course Oreo have released another fantastic video. This time it’s a sing-a-long rap to the wonders of the cookie ball. Recipe can be found here.
VSauce show us some crazy optical illusions, including many in popular culture. Mind blown.
Staying on the fact theme, Asap pack about a million of them into this 2:19 clip. Did you know the resting temperature of testicles was 95F? Something to talk about around the Christmas dinner table.
26 interesting facts about beer include how much the pilgrims had a liking for it, how closely beer and cannabis are linked and that the most popular beer in the world is brewed in China. Excellent joke about pale lager included btw. Of course, the most important thing about beer is that all of it pretty much takes like Satan’s vomit.
Fan fiction can be heart stoppingly amazing sometimes and if you’re a fan of Dr Who, Sherlock Holmes (Cumberbatch addition) and plummy British accents in general then this is going to leave you with a huge smile on your face.
