Welcome everyone, to Fun Video Friday. It was Geek Week, so the geeky stuff definitely was all over the place from a number of creators, and we got some pretty winning collaborations and videos in the process. The talk show circuit had a lot of "YouTube worthy" clips. The Manning brothers continue their winning ways off the field with yet another commercial that just nails it. And have you ever been given the weather forecast in an elevator, complete with a map and everything? Some people have.
