Budding rapper, glamorous nobody and quirky dog steal show - WDAM-TV 7-News, Weather, Sports-Hattiesburg, MS

Your Week in Viral Videos: Talent in places you would never think to look

(RNN) – If you heard Tina Fey rapping and thought that was a fish out of water moment, you're really going to get a kick out of the hidden talent of Alison Brie.

The blue-eyed beauty that plays the mousy and quirky Annie Edison in NBC's Community likes to rap freestyle in her spare time.

No, I didn't st-st-stutter, this girl's got skills to pay the bills. OK, that was really bad.

This clip, on the other hand, is a slam dunk cinch to make you roll with laughter.

OOPS, DID I SAY THAT?

So, let's talk about really embarrassing moments. Stumbling over your words, stumbling over your own feet – bad enough when complete strangers or your crush see you do it.

It's even worse when, say oh, several thousand people are watching you.

The verbal flub by this unwitting anchor is bad enough, but the fact that the weather girl completely loses it and laughs through the entire segment is downright priceless.

Word to the wise – always assume the camera is on. And for you folks who watch broadcast news and live for the moments when the talking heads make total fools of themselves, this one's for you.

WHO WANTS TO POSE WITH A MILLIONAIRE?

Just go ahead and admit it. Brett Cohen is twice as cool as Taylor Lautner and would have made a much better Spiderman than Tobey Maguire.

He's a pretty good singer, too, so a music career is not out of the question. It's amazing that no one appreciates all Cohen's raw talent, which sits behind a face made for Hollywood.

Want to know the truth about Brett Cohen? None of that is true. He's a nobody. Look at you, you've already googled him. Sucker.

He proved that just about anybody will fall for the trappings of glamour, even if the person at the center of attention has no claim to fame.

Frontrunners, posers, leaches – we all know those people. We may be those people and not even realize it. Sad, but true.

CAR RIDES MAKE YOU A KID AGAIN – NO, REALLY

It's like this guy jumped inside the head of just about everyone who has ever been a bored adolescent and made a YouTube video about what he found.

The little guy running beside our car, throwing a ball as close as you can to the ceiling without hitting it, "don't step on the cracks" – if none of that sounds familiar, you didn't have a childhood worth talking about.

This is a brilliant concept set to the perfect soundtrack, and it could be the inspiration for an Academy Award category for online amateur videos.

That last part may be going overboard a bit, but this is still a video worth watching and sharing with everyone you know.

DOG VS. VEGETABLE

It's an epic battle for the ages, and there can be but one winner – you (Admit it, the voice in your head as you read that sentence was the deep-voiced movie announcer, and there was dramatic music playing the background).

Maymo the dog is a canine celebrity thanks to a series of impossibly cute YouTube videos, and this is one of the best.

Watch and enjoy, and remember to have your pets spayed or neutered (Bob Barker, right? Riiiiiight).
