The video was posted on TikTok by Camihardman and has since been viewed more than 13.7 million times. The video shows an Amazon delivery truck driving straight off the highway, over the grass, and reportedly through a shortcut to avoid the traffic. One user said, "I'd be the car behind. Truck drivers know what's up and I'd trust him to get us to a faster route."
Most of the people that have commented on the video are poking fun at Amazon and its delivery service, with one user saying, "We're sorry to inform you your package has been dela... will be arriving earlier than expected." The video also shows another vehicle following the road the truck was following. It should be noted that the creator of the video mentioned that she saw "probably 10 cars do it before them".

Javier, whose TikTok handle is @unicosobreviviente, which translates to Lone Survivor, has been posting videos to his account since February 13, 2021, where he first claimed to have "woken up" in the year 2027 [Video Here]. Since then, Javier has been posting more videos, and each of them shows a barren town in Spain with no people in any of the areas that should usually have "high human traffic".
Each of the videos has been watched millions of times, with the first garnering the most attention with more than 11 million views. The first video was captioned, "I just woke up in a hospital, and I don't know what might have happened. Today is February 13, 2027, and I am alone in the city." As you can probably imagine, the videos were met with heavy criticism. Many users questioned why things such as electricity and internet connections are still working when no one is around.
A video last month has recently gone viral as it shows the moment two women were flung from a swing that was swinging them over a 6,300 feet cliff.
The video was shot last month in Russia's Dagestan region, and it shows two women being thrown from a swing that goes out over the side of a cliff. The women were flung from the swing because one of the chains attached to the chair broke, causing the chair to drop to one side and the women to be hurdled forwards while they desperately struggled to hold on.
While the cliff is 6,300 feet, 200 feet deeper than the Grand Canyon, the women actually survived the fall because they landed on a narrow platform just below the cliff face. The Mirror reports that family members dragged them both to safety and that the women only suffered mild bruising and scratches from the fall. An investigation has begun into the incident by Russian authorities.
An individual has filmed a woman duct-taped to a an American Airlines plane seat after reportedly having a mental breakdown mid-flight.
TikTok user @lol.ariee was aboard American Airlines Flight 1774 that was heading to Charlotte, North Carolina, from Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, when a woman on-board flight began to cause a commotion. @lol.ariee explained in a follow-up video that all flight attendants were running up and down the aisles but weren't telling anyone what the problem was. The pilot of the plane then informed everyone that there was "a bad situation on the plane".
@lol.ariee continued and said that a flight attendant eventually told passengers that a woman was experiencing a mental breakdown and "had an outburst". This "outburst" was an attempt to get off the plane as she was saying, "She was saying, 'I need to get off this plane,' and she went up to the exits and started banging on the doors, saying, 'You need to let me off this plane!'" @lol.ariee said.
Sometimes when you pull out your camera to record a friend, you end up recording something that you never intended or weren't expecting to happen. This is one of those moments.
Tomas Gomez, an employee at the TopGolf driving range located in Texas, was smashing some balls with his friends before the bad weather became too much. Gomez struck his last ball out into the rain while one of his friends recorded the shot. The footage shows the ball being hit out into the driving range and then being struck by a bolt of lighting, presumably completely destroyed.
The video has since gone viral on TikTok and has been featured on the TopGolf Instagram page. Gomez said to KSAT-TV, "It could have hit me...It could have hit any of us, Gomes told the news outlet. I heard the thunder and my instinct was to run... It was all a blur. It was actually pretty scary after I was thinking about it for a while."

YouTube is planning on paying YouTube Short creators out of its soon-to-be-released $100 million creators fund.
YouTube Shorts will be what YouTube will be using to combat the extremely popular app TikTok. According to Amy Singer, the director of global partnership enablement for YouTube Shorts, the fund's announcement is the "first step in our journey to build a long-term monetization model for Shorts on YouTube". Additionally, Singer says that the creator's fund is a "top priority for us", but it will "take us some time to get it right."
It should be noted that anyone who creates YouTube Shorts can be a part of the fund, and not just creators who are enrolled in the YouTube Partner Program.

YouTube is going to be reaching out "to thousands of creators whose Shorts received the most engagement and views to reward them for their contributions."
The world of streaming is change quite rapidly, and just yesterday Microsoft announced the closure of its streaming platform Mixer.
Microsoft announced that it was partnering with Facebook Gaming to transit its community over to Facebook's streaming service. This has left big name streamers such as Shroud and Ninja as free agents that have complete rain of choice for what streaming platform they want to start streaming on. The closure of Mixer may not affect the already established badly (as most already have monetary contracts signed), but it certainly will impact the streamers that have been slowly climbing the ranks of the streaming world.
So what do these streamers do? A moderately large Mixer streamer might have a hard time transitioning their audience over to a new platform. The transition could come at a cost of many streamers audience members leaving, essentially, throughout the transition period viewers are lost. Mixer streamers will have to make a decision of what platform they are going to begin streaming on soon, as Mixer will be officially killed off on July 22nd.

Google users will also be able to schedule in meetings on their Google Calender and go straight to meetings from the Google Calendar app or website.

At the moment, Google Meet sessions are unlimited, but after September 30th sessions will be limited to 60 minutes each.
