Viral Videos Aren't Really My Thing But Then THIS GUY AND HIS INSTRUMENTS...

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Rumble for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
Most people know that I’m not all that crazy about videos on the ‘net, and in particular I’m not crazy about when people suggest I watch them.  I rarely take time out of my day to watch a video, and even then I’m usually not too impressed by the videos that are suggested to me.
Which is why I was a bit skeptical about this site I heard about, “rumble,” promising ‘viral videos’ for people to watch that were actually cool.  I’ve heard that before.  No doubt there will be someone’s kid hugging a cat while Mom twerks to Prince’s “1999” in the background or something WHATEVS
But I checked it out, and they actually have videos that even got me to think “Well, that was pretty cool.”
Like this viral videos from a guy who draws two lifelike goldfish in a time-lapse video.

I first watched it just because I really want to improve my drawing (from “just above stick figure” to something a bit more like Rusty Carl could do), but then as I watched it I was just enthralled.  One of the fish looks completely real.  COMPLETELY.
So I looked around the site a bit more, and I found another cool viral videos, a shot of flying through the auroras in low orbit.

At this point, I am pretty much resigned to the fact that I will not become an astronaut (STILL HOLDING OUT HOPE FOR THAT SUPER BOWL QUARTERBACK JOB THOUGH) so that video might be the closest I ever come to seeing that.

Then I wandered over into “Music,” where I found a viral videos of a guy playing “Get Lucky”… on bassoon and theremin.

I mean who even knows how to play one of those? I want to be friends with that guy.
So while I am reluctant to recommend videos to people because then they recommend them back to me, you probably should go check the site out, because it’s cool.

So go get your viral videos through rumble, okay? And find me a theremin and bassoon tutor.
