Another Fun Video Friday is upon us. This week, it appears most of the scientific YouTube community took the week off, so I'm going to assume that they're all collaborating on something coming soon. But that doesn't mean we don't have a ton of videos for your weekend aiming to make you laugh, sing, and maybe cry. This particular roundup today is pretty star-studded. We have Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx, Olivia Munn, Miley Cyrus, Michael Cera, Aubrey Plaza and the returning cast of Anchorman 2.

Cracked explains that YouTube comments are nothing new, when you compare it to writing on bathroom walls (lots of bleeped language):

Here's an awesome summer trick with a bottle of Coca-Cola, turned into a nice slushee as if by magic:
Is Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" the most emulated song of all time…this month? The musicians of CDZA take a crack at it by getting a bunch of their crew all on one piano:
Dude Perfect is asked to perform some amazing stunts involving basketballs, footballs, and Fiats:
Dogs doing cute things. I'm not made of stone:
Seriously, I'm not made of stone:

This is a Lego re-creation of The Wizard of Oz. Complete with a tornado:

As always, have a terrific Friday.
