  • JACOB SOBOROFF: Hey, it's Jacob.

  • Today , we got third-degree sound burns,

  • trike drifting through Taiwan, and weapons of chalk

  • destruction.

  • A few months ago, 80-year-old, Betty Belden

  • was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer.

  • And her great grandson decided to do something about it.

  • JEREMIAH WARREN: My family and I were

  • trying to come up with a way to kind

  • of document Grandma's last days.

  • And one of the things that popped up was Instagram.

  • JACOB SOBOROFF: She's become an Instagram sensation

  • with over 600,000 followers, including pharrell.

  • JEREMIAH WARREN: It has changed her personality for the better,

  • I think.

  • She's more outgoing.

  • She's more active than she usually is.

  • JACOB SOBOROFF: Despite how positive and upbeat

  • she's been through this whole thing, she needs your help.

  • Betty's family created an IndieGoGo campaign

  • to help brighten up her remaining days.

  • One of the requests-- you're going to love this--

  • is a lifetime supply of Diet 7UP.

  • BETTY BELDEN: You have to love people.

  • I mean, from your heart out, just not from your mouth.

  • JEREMIAH WARREN: She's very selfless.

  • And she does not think of herself, at all.

  • She thinks of everyone else.

  • JACOB SOBOROFF: I'm sure a lot of you guys

  • want to become one of Betty's Instagrandchildren.

  • We put a link her campaign for you in the description below.

  • CARLY: We all have guilty pleasure video niches.

  • Ernest is watching little kids get

  • hit in the face with exercise balls.

  • But for me, it's definitely ballet.

  • The New York City Ballet just posted this preview

  • for a new ballet with music by Sufjan Stevens,

  • and I'm completely in love with it.

  • It premieres in May.

  • If you've never heard of Sufjan, he's an indie folk wizard.

  • And this is the second time that he's

  • teamed up with the company.

  • I danced for eight years, and this instantly

  • made me feel like I was back in the studio.

  • But if you've never danced, I think

  • you're still going to love it.

  • MALE SPEAKER 1: Yeah, go for it.

  • Whoa!

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • JACOB SOBOROFF: In case you're wondering

  • what the heck you're looking at, that

  • is an open flame responding directly to music.

  • It's called a Pyro Board.

  • It was created by a graduate student in Denmark.

  • Here's how it works.

  • VERITASIUM:You may have seen a Rubens' Tube before--

  • a pipe with a bunch of holes in it,

  • and you pump in a flammable gas and light it on fire.

  • Play some sounds into the tube, and you can actually

  • set up standing waves.

  • There are patterns of the vibration of the air, where

  • there's a lot of vibration in some parts and not very much

  • vibration in other parts.

  • JACOB SOBOROFF: Veritasium just posted this video.

  • It might be one of our favorite ones of theirs yet.

  • If you haven't already, make sure to subscribe

  • to Derek's channel.

  • He's headed to the Czech Republic next.

  • ALEX: If you ask me, the coolest video today

  • comes and Sam and Eric, two high school students

  • from South Carolina who are incredibly talented.

  • What I love is it they turn to their subscribers for ideas

  • and crowdsourced all the weapon suggestions for the video.

  • Did you see the energy sword?

  • Ahh!

  • Head on over to their channel to see two more chalk wars.

  • JACOB SOBOROFF: In case you're looking for a new way

  • to waste time your cubicle, turns out competitive pen

  • twirling is a thing.

  • This video is a few months old, but it's

  • trending all over the place right now.

  • One of these guys made it all the way

  • the semi-finals of the 2014 world Pen Spinning

  • Championships.

  • This channel has been killing it recently.

  • It's two brothers from Utah, who spent the last year and a half

  • in Taiwan capturing some of the most fascinating fringe sports

  • that I have ever seen, like trike drifting.

  • Oh, that kid would kill me in trike drifting.

  • These guys have already collaborated

  • with Red Bull and EpicTV.

  • They are going to be huge.

  • Go subscribe.

  • This is the part of the show where you guys tell us

  • what to watch.

  • OWEN: Hey, YouTube Nation, my name is Owen Weber.

  • I'm a comedian and filmmaker.

  • And I made a video called "How to Piss Off Your State Farm

  • Agent."

  • It's a parody of those State Farm commercials, where people

  • sing the jingle and then summon their agent wherever they are.

  • MALE SPEAKER 2: Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.

  • MALE SPEAKER 3: What the hell?

  • I was in Tahiti, man!

  • MALE SPEAKER 2: Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.
