Hello, everyone. It’s Friday, which means a whole new batch of amazing videos coming your way. In this edition of Fun Video Friday, you’ll see a teddy bear have an operation, courtesy of ZeFrank. You’ll also see a few killer robots, thanks to a creepy video on Vimeo and a summer blockbuster. And I didn’t think Baha Men’s constantly-on-radio 1998 hit, “Who Let the Dogs Out?” had any soul, but one intrepid piano player is out to prove me wrong. Also: Rhett & Link have made another down and dirty ad for a local business that embraces low tech.
