Gin and TopicsBy Gini Dietrich

It’s Friday, Friday
Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend, weekend.

Friday, Friday
Gettin’ down on Friday
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend.

Partyin’, partyin’ (Yeah)
Partyin’, partyin’ (Yeah)
Fun, fun, fun, fun
Lookin’ forward to the weekend.

That song came on as I was writing this so … you’re welcome. (And now it’s stuck in my head – ARGH!)

And now I present you with Gin and Topics. This week’s videos are courtesy of Howie Goldfarb, Heidi Massey, Daniel Hebert, Justin Brackett, and yours truly.

5. Murmuration: A Group of Starlings. I don’t know how to describe this video without ruining it for you. Let’s just say it’s one of nature’s most incredible phenomenons. It takes about 30 seconds for the real action to begin so be patient.

4. One Direction without Autotune. I will readily admit I’m a One Direction fan. I first saw them perform on SNL and LOVED them. So it makes me feel a tiny bit badly to make fun of them. But not badly enough not to share this with you! I think they must have had the Muppets help them.

3. A Conference Call in Real Life. You know how some things are funny because they’re true? That’s the case with this video. It’s the conference call we’ve all had (maybe even multiple times a week), but in real life. H-I-larious!

2. Dancing Dog. OH MY GOSH!!!!!! I have to teach Jack Bauer to do this. What a freaking riot!

1. Antler Ring Toss with Queen Latifah. I want to be Jimmy Fallon. I mean, seriously. Who says, “I know what we can do! Let’s have Queen Latifah on the show. We’ll give her a helmet made of antlers and we’ll throw rings at her.”?? To be fair, Fallon has is wearing an antler helmet.
