Real life Angry Birds, Cameraman takes a tumble, deaf woman hears, and surfing glow-in-the-dark waves
This week's popular videos include a couple of soccer players playing a real-life game of Angry Birds, a cameraman who falls down on the job, a deaf woman who hears her own voice for the first time, and a couple of San Diego surfers riding bright blue waves.
Surfing the Bright, Blue Waves -- At Night
We here in the Tampa bay area know a bit about the science behind this one. The Pacific Ocean along some San Diego-area beaches got a case of the red tide, lighting up waves with those blue bioluminescent flashes. Meanwhile a couple of surfers took advantage of the wild color. Too bad the waves are small. Still, the video is pretty cool.
Deaf Woman Hears Her Own Voice For The First Time
Imagine what it would be like to be deaf your entire life, and then, in your 29th year you are given a device that allows you to hear. Then imagine hearing your own voice. From the YouTube description: I was born deaf and 8 weeks ago I received a hearing implant. This is the video of them turning it on and me hearing myself for the first time :)
Real-Life Angry Birds
So, you like Angry Birds. Lots of people do, including UNC Asheville goalkeepers Lassi Hurskainen and Dan Jackson. They compete in a match of real life Angry Birds. It's a long video, but if you've ever played the game, I'm sure you spent more than 4 minutes at a time on it.
MLB Camera Man Fail
Here at ABC Action News, we live the horror stories you laugh at on blooper reels. Anchors fumbling over words, Reporters standing in complete silence, and yes, photojournalists, falling while trying to get that perfect shot. In game 4 of the American League Division Series between the Rays and the Rangers, you might remember that Adrian Beltre hit a home run or two. As he's headed to home for one of them, the camera guy tries to run with him down the third base line. You know what happens next.
