Internet activity videos - DO try this at home!
January 25, 2012 7:57 AM   Subscribe

Remember the Diet Coke and Mentos video? I'm looking for similar examples of internet memes that members of the public could, in theory, learn to replicate at home. Stuff like cup stacking; make-up tutorials; Double Dream Hands; or opening a beer with your arm. It mustn't be anything that requires special powers (eg double-jointedness) or special props - just household objects. Suggestions?

Also, probably not what you're looking for, but the two video memes all us girls attempted when I was in high school (though we didn't call them that) were the scene in Flashdance where Jennifer Beals took off her bra without removing her sweatshirt, and Molly Ringwald's Breakfast Club lipstick application

Are you talking exclusively skills, or does crap like planking and "You've been iced, bro" qualify?

Saber/sabre a champagne bottle! You don't have to have a sword; you can use a knife! Unless you are married to my husband, the Improper Knife Use Police.

With a marker, two standard human hands, and some practice, you too could mime daft punk lyrics.
