Toothbrush Melts Into Oblivion In Surprisingly Hypnotic Video

Toothbrush Melts Into Oblivion In Surprisingly Hypnotic Video

Who knew that watching a toothbrush melt could be so mesmerizing?

The oral hygiene instrument is slowly blow-torched into oblivion in a hypnotic new video posted online. 

The team at the “Let’s Melt This” channel on YouTube are behind the clip, which is now going viral.

The channel, launched in March, is following in the trend of other famous YouTubers who regularly obliterate everyday objects for entertainment.

These include Finnish factory owner Lauri Vuohensilta, who crushes items with his hydraulic press, and the Slow Mo Guys, who film their explosive exploits using high-definition cameras.

The melting-obsessed channel has already garnered more than 4.6 million views in total. Previous clips show a Rubik’s Cube, a wrist watch and a dinner fork all being blow-torched before our very eyes.

Twitter Hilariously Imagines Trump’s Fake Intelligence Briefings

If intelligence officials did actually end up giving Donald Trump fake briefings, what would they say?

Wonder no more. Tweeters are imagining how the discussion with the GOP presidential candidate would go via the #FakeTrumpIntelligenceBriefing hashtag, which is trending worldwide.

They range from revealing inane facts about popular culture to clearing up possible confusions ― such as telling the reality TV personality that the Cook Islands is not really where chefs are trained.

Check out some of the best posts here:

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacistmisogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

‘Daily Show’ Proves Clinton Campaign Just Like First Four ‘Rocky’ Films

‘Daily Show’ Proves Clinton Campaign Just Like First Four ‘Rocky’ Films

Philadelphia is not only where the Democratic National Convention took place earlier this week, it’s also the home of movie icon Rocky Balboa.

Turns out, The Daily Show staff sees parallels between Hillary Clinton and the first four “Rocky” films.

They just can’t stop fighting over which film fits best.

Jordan Klepper feels the first “Rocky” film is the best comparison to Clinton’s campaign.

“Hillary and Rocky are both lefty scrappers who get no respect,” Klepper said on a special Friday broadcast. “They both have an old guy who used to criticize them, but is now right in their corner.”

Klepper added: “Right now, Hillary’s going to train hard, earn our support and prove she’s who can go to the distance.”

“Daily Show” host Trevor Noah felt compelled to point out that Rocky loses the fight in the first movie.

“Does he?” Klepper replied. “I never get past the training montage.”

Hassan Minhaj had a different take.

“Hillary Clinton is ‘Rocky II. She lost to the black guy the first time and now she’s ready for her second shot at the title,” he said.

Adam Lowitt disagreed, saying the Clinton campaign is best compared to “Rocky III.”

“Hillary is rich and overconfident and she’s going to lose in an upset to an angry bully with weird hair who everyone calls Mr. T.”

The correspondents finally decided that “Rocky IV” was the most appropriate film for this year’s presidential race.

As Minhaj described it: “Donald Trump is a monster backed by Russia who is embarrasing the America in front of the entire world.”
