It's probably too hot today to dance around, but it's Friday and that's worth celebrating. I found this video compiling some of the greatest dance moments in movie history set to "The Safety Dance" from the 80's.

Very well done and see how many movies you can identify.

Colbie Caillat has had success with songs like "Bubbly", "Realize", and "Fallin' For You", but her new song and video are resonating with women everywhere.

"Take your makeup off/ Let your hair down/ Take a breath/ Look into the mirror at yourself/
Don't you like you?/ Cause I like you,"


The song is called "Try" and Colbie says she wrote the song after a conversation about the pressure she felt to be someone she wasn't. It sends a powerful message about feeling comfortable and beautiful in your own skin.

The video has already been viewed over 16 million times in just 2 weeks.

Why is Frank such a happy dog? He was a rescue and is so happy to be in his new home he is always wagging his tail, even when he's sleeping!

This is one of the most unqiue and original proposal videos I've ever seen. Jehan Ratnatunga wanted to combine all of his girlfriend's favorite things into the proposal. So what do you get? An awesome combination of Mickey Mouse, Bollywood, Beyonce, and Michael Jackson.

This dog has no idea what to make of an egg. He has a great time trying to play with it though!

Thumper was part of a rescue litter, but right away they noticed something about this cute kitten. He was having problems using his back legs. They discovered Thumper had a rare neurological disorder. His foster mom wasn't about to give up on him though. She had an idea to build a walker for Thumper to help him walk. Not only did it improve his mobility, now he can even run and play just like the rest of his brothers and sisters.

Most people probably don't hear enough positive comments each day. Blake Grigsby decided to do something about it. He drove around in a convertable and used his megaphone to give compliments to people on the street. The results are pretty great.

It takes about 10-11 hours to fly from Tokyo to San Francisco. This amazing video takes the trip in just 83 seconds using 3,400 separate images from the flight. Really cool seeing the sunrise, and that's Venus you see on the horizon.

There have been some pretty creative wedding proposals going viral lately. I haven't seen one like this though. The guy who you see at the end really went big. He had the proposal slipped into the news on the teleprompter. She had no idea that she was reading her own proposal live on the news!

The World Cup comes to an end this Sunday as Germany takes on Argentina in the final match. The Bay Area has been one of the top markets for the tournament, but if you haven't been able to get into it there's something that might help. Cats.

Approaching your workout with a positive attitude is key. Look at this Silver Lab named Gunner. He attacks the treadmill with a smile and determination. The Rocky theme probably helps!

I had no ideas turtles were playful. I had a few turtles as pets when I was a kid and I'll be honest, they didn't do much. THIS turtle however is ready to play, and he's not about to let the dog take his ball.

Turtle 1. Dog 0.

These folks have a great sense of humor and some impressive moves! They did a tribute to Michael Jackson and proved you're never too old to Moonwalk.

Music has an amazing power to heal. The music of Bruno Mars is making a big difference for 11-Year Old Zumyah Thorpe. She was seriously injured a few years ago in a tragic car crash. A drunk driver crashed into her car killing her pregnant mother and older sister. Zumyah and her 2 younger sisters survived, but Zumyah suffered a traumatic brain injury.

She had serious impairments to her language and motor skills. Her family and doctors were shocked when she woke up from her coma and began singing Bruno Mars' song "Just The Way You Are."

The healing power of music was evident as the doctors realized that singing the song and knowing all the words helped speed up her recovery. Bruno Mars heard about the story and wanted to do something special for her.

During his recent show in Cleveland, he made a special dedication to Zumyah and sang "Just the Way You Are" especially for her. The touching video is featured below.

When I was a kid I loved fireworks. Big displays, small fireworks at home, even sparklers were fun. This video has some great reactions from kids who are getting into 4th of July fun!
