Awesome Video of Downburst Makes Netizens Think of ‘Tsunami from Heaven’

Nature is truly amazing! There are a lot of things in nature that are difficult to explain so that people sometimes think that these strange phenomenon are made by magical entities.

One video recently went viral because of the beautiful power of nature that was caught on camera.

A 27-year-old guy from Switzerland, Peter Maier, was just enjoying his vacation at Lake Millsatt in Austria when he chanced upon a rather incredible weather phenomenon unfolding right before his eyes.

Called a wet microburst or a downburst, the weather phenomenon started from the mountain range. What made this video even more incredible is that it appears as if the heavens opened its floodgates and dumped so much rain into the lake.

It was beautiful to watch but also terrifying to see.

For sure, that downburst had held a lot of energy and poured so much water with so much force on the mountains as well as the lake below but netizens were amazed by what they had seen.

Maier was even so amazed that he took a video of the phenomenon unfolding right before his eyes. He was at his hotel room balcony at the time, relaxing when he noticed the heavy downpour.

He knew he had to take a video because this thing rarely happens and it is even rarer to get a video.

Maier described the beautiful phenomenon as a ‘tsunami from heaven’ – and we certainly agree with his description. The time-lapse video has since gone viral, gaining nearly 3.5 million views since it was uploaded on YouTube.

While many netizens said they felt terrified by the video, knowing the amount of water falling and the force it was being dumped into the lake, a lot were simply amazed at the power and beauty of nature.

Someone joked that this was just the hand of God refilling the lake…

Video of Kids Swimming at a Store’s Fountain Goes Viral

A video of kids swimming at a store’s water fountain goes viral, with netizens commenting how carefree kids are and how much fun they were having in that small water feature.

Kids Swim at a Store’s Fountain

It’s fun to swim at the beach, pool, river, or some other water body or feature, especially when the weather is so hot. Many of us don’t even mind traveling a long distance to reach these swimming spots to have a good time.

There are lots of fun places to swim in where you don’t have to pay an entrance fee to have a good time. For example, most public beaches in the Philippines are open for swimming without any payment involved.

But kids in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental, have found another free water feature: a fountain outside a MINISO store! LOL

In a post that has gone viral on Facebook, netizen Veronica Buen shared a photo and video of some kids swimming at that small water fountain, having the time of their lives.

It’s obvious that these kids were having such a good time despite the fact that this water fountain could be dirty because it’s not meant for swimming – and it’s been open for months, without any chlorination as what swimming pools are supposed to have to cleanse them of harmful bacteria and other pathogens.

The kids’ identity is unknown, but it’s possible that they live in the streets and were likely just having fun in that water fountain. The waters of Dumaguete’s beautiful boulevard are actually just a few meters away from this fountain, but the kids chose this spot for swimming, instead.

Some netizens commented that the water was dirty, while others said that the kids should be allowed to swim there because they’re not bothering anyone, anyway.

Sinabawang Hotdog? Andrea Brillantes Goes Viral for Tasting Oil While Cooking in Music Video

Anong lasa ng cooking oil, Andrea?” netizens couldn’t help but jokingly ask actress Andrea Brillantes after she appears to taste the oil she used for cooking hotdogs in a music video, “Tahanan.”

Andrea Brillantes Tastes Cooking Oil

OPM singer Adie’s music video for “Tahanan” started off with a cliché scene of a man waking up in bed alone, then finding his partner cooking breakfast for him. She ruffles his hair and offers him a slice of sandwich.

It’s clear that she’s really just cooking some hotdogs (nothing wrong with that, of course).

But netizens found the next scene hilarious: Andrea’s character appears to taste the soup she’s cooking, saying “Sarap!” with rounded eyes – and everyone knew she was cooking hotdogs! Ooooops.

Do you taste the oil when frying something, then say it’s delicious? Of course, not!

So, netizens had a field day laughing at Andrea, but the actress happily went along, posting “sinabawang hotdog supremacy” on her social media account.

Why Did Andrea Taste the Cooking Oil?

The biggest question in everyone’s mind is why she tasted the cooking oil in the first place? But the music video’s director and producer, Kris Cazin, clarified that it was exactly what they wanted to happen.

Okay so nag viral tayo dahil sa sinabawang hotdog. It actually worked!” Kris happily announced.

I just thought it looks dumb so I went for it. If you think it’s funny and stupid, that’s the point!

He added that this isn’t about a gender role, but wants to point out that it’s important to show appreciation to your partner, even if they don’t really know how to cook – at least they tried to do it for you, right?

Don’t expect all women, jowa, asawa, etc na marunong magluto,” he said.

Ipagluluto ka parin niya kahit di siya marunong magluto. Show mo parin ang pagtingin mo sakanya, mahal mo parin siya despite mukha siyang ewan na umiinom ng sabaw ng hotdog.

Priest Stops Groom in Passionate “Kiss the Bride” Moment

A priest stops groom in a passionate “kiss the bride” moment that got netizens laughing and telling him the honeymoon isn’t done in church but reserved for later. LOL.

Priest Stops Groom in Hilarious Video

Not everyone’s a fan of the “kiss the bride” moment to seal the new couple’s wedding vows, but it’s an expected part of the ceremony.

Of course, everyone knows that the “kiss” in this portion of the ceremony is meant to be more of a customary peck or smack. After all, who would want to share a passionate kiss at the altar with everyone watching, huh?

Some couples are even too shy to kiss, just like a bride who irked a lot of people when she refused to kiss her groom! But many people also laughed at their video, saying that she’s really just a shy girl, a true “dalagang Pilipina”. Whew.

But netizens are having a good laugh once again at another wedding video, this time the opposite of the shy bride video.

The short clip shows the hilarious moment the groom kissed his bride after the priest directed him to do it. But he decided the small kiss isn’t enough and leaned in closer to give his bride a full kiss.

Everyone had a big laugh as the priest quickly stopped him from giving his bride a passionate kiss.

The bride and groom were only identified as Erica and Justine.

Netizens commented that the groom was definitely excited for the honeymoon, while the priest must have been shocked by this passionate groom. LOL.

Some netizens suggested that perhaps it’s their first kiss that’s why the groom was too excited. Whatever the case, it’s quite hilarious.
