Snowmobiler defies gravity (and other viral vids)

Time for Viral Video Rewind, our weekly look at the latest, greatest viral videos on the Web.

This week, watch a snowmobiler defy gravity and a young man do a handstand on two fingers - he's said to be one of two people in the world who can pull that off. Then, how to play any instrument brilliantly in a viral video, even if you can't play it at all.

Plus: a cool app to create instant harmony, the ultimate relaxation video, amazingly talented young musicians, and a pop mashup that puts others to shame.

Links to all these videos can be found here. (Or here for a shortcut.)

Latest, greatest viral videos

"Head prank" gives an anchor uncontrollable giggles. Amazing music video goes down in history. A train battles a tornado (wow). And a woman dancing through an airport becomes a viral video sensation. Just a few highlights from this week's Viral Video Rewind.

My team and I always have a great time preparing this segment, which runs every week on Saturday at 3:15 p.m. ET. It's like dessert for me, after all the reality checks and harder news stories I've been doing throughout the week.

This week came an added bonus: Fredricka's contagious laughter over the "head prank." I usually avoid prank videos. Not my style. But this one is innocent, hilarious, and the prankster gets what's coming to him.

Enjoy. Links to all our videos are posted here. Send your favorites, and they just might pop up on next week's VVR.
