Chris Hadfield sang David Bowie's "Space Oddity" on his way back down to Earth, and came back as a bonafide YouTube star in the process. His videos already did pretty well, but "Space Oddity" has hit 12 million views in 4 days. It's definitely the biggest highlight of the week, but it's not the only one. It's not even the only video with Chris Hadfield in it. We have two videos from Rhett & Link, Epic Meal Time makes a Bacon Arachnid, and Reservoir Dogs gets what it always deserved: sock puppet treatment. So sit back and enjoy: it's Fun Video Friday.
