The sports world was filled with awesome videos this week. Of course, one of them involves the Harlem Shake, but others just involve being breathtaking. There’s something about extreme sports, especially shot through a GoPro lens, that attains the perfect image of freedom. And there were a ton this week. It’s likely that all of your adrenaline-rush fantasies will come true by watching these videos, albeit from a distance. But don’t worry, I stuck some comedy videos in here as well, and a few learning vids. It’s Fun Video Friday, everyone.

Speaking of memes, the Fine Bros. decided to dust off an old one when they got YouTubers like Philip DeFranco, iJustine, SMOSH, and Rhett & Link to react to RickRolling:
Key and Peele have become comedy sensations much because of YouTube. And here, they visit Epic Rap Battles and fight in “Gandhi vs. Martin Luther King:”
