Your Week in Viral Videos: Feel like a kid again

British Airways devised a brilliant way to catch people's attention, even the ones who don't plan on flying any time soon. (Source: YouTube) British Airways devised a brilliant way to catch people's attention, even the ones who don't plan on flying any time soon. (Source: YouTube)

(RNN) - If you have an annoying friend who sees every quirky commercial and confidently says, "I could have thought of that," you should show that person British Airways' latest advertising gimmick.

An interactive billboard strategically placed near an airport in London gives the impression that a young boy on the screen is trying to chase the plane through the air - just like many kids do in real life.

The board even shows the correct number of the plane in flight. Show that to Mr./Mrs. Know-it-all, and see how they like them apples.

Remind me again why Darius Rucker is so awesome…

He fulfilled a promise he had previously made to a teenager with Down syndrome by not only singing with him on stage, but surprising him with the duet during his high school talent show.

Yep, it's official. "Hootie" is 10 different kinds of awesome.

Frankie Antonelli, 16,  got the time of his life, and Rucker probably gained several more fans simply by being an awesome human being.

Seal surprise

No, this is not another impromptu performance by a singer. An actual seal jumped into a woman's kayak in a park in New Zealand.

What follows is the type of cuteness that can only be grasped with digital video.

According to the "experts" in the comments section, the seal hopped a ride to avoid a big shark near the kayak. But if you can see it - beginning at the 1:01 mark, supposedly - you have much better eyes than me.
