Greg Benson, actor and funnyman, has a new prank video climbing the YouTube charts. "Cell Phone Crashing at the Airport" has Benson and his hidden camera (operated by wife Kim Evey) crowding people at an airport as they talk on their phones. Benson, on his MediocreFilms, has crashed cellphone conversations before -- at a park, a soccer game, on the streets of San Francisco . He responds to others' conversations into his own phone. It takes a moment for people to register the pleasant-looking man invading their space.

Scientists have released video of an 8-foot-long, shimmering oarfish taken  about 200 feet below the ocean surface -- and it is breathtaking. Elusive and alien-looking, the oarfish has a thin, eel-like body with squiggly iridescent markings that glow blue in the video. It also has a long dorsal fin that stretches the length of nearly half its body, and large round eyes rimmed in silver.  That bright white blob you see in the fish's spiny dorsal fins is a parasitic isopod -- sort of like an ocean version of the roly poly bug -- that has attached itself to the fish.

USC football players spoke to The Times last week about how they were by humbled by their recent trip to Haiti , where a group of 16 Trojans helped build four houses and moved supplies to people still recovering from the 2010 earthquake. On Monday, USC released a video about the trip featuring interviews with players while they were in Haiti and also shows them working with and interacting with children and local residents. "I think it sparked something in me that I'm going to continue to do the rest of my life," defensive lineman Devon Kennard says in the video.

  Oh, Copenhagen. You brought us the Midcentury furniture designs that make "Mad Men" an interior decorator's dream and saw the wisdom of bike commuting long before L.A. earned its first CicLAvia. Now you've one-upped every philharmonic in the world with video of your orchestra (Sjællands Symfoniorkester) making an entire subway train weak in the knees with a flash mob performance of Grieg's "Peer Gynt" on a Copenhagen Metro train. In a video filmed last month that justifiably went viral, the Copenhagen symphony is subtly introduced on one of the station's signs with the announcement, "Classical special train: Enjoy the music," before treating commuters to probably one of the most beautiful rides of their lives.

The Internal Revenue Service has apologized for spending about $60,000 on a training video that parodied the television show, “Star Trek.” In a six-minute video that is attracting wide attention on the Internet, IRS workers portrayed characters from the popular television series and vowed “to boldly go where no governmental employee has gone before.” Congress was not amused, calling the video a waste of taxpayer money. The IRS has acknowledged it was a mistake for employees to make the video.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is learning that a bad situation can always get worse.  Video has emerged that shows him angry and out of breath, ranting about killing someone. "It's first-degree murder!" "No holds barred. " "He dies or I die. " "I'll rip his ... throat out. " The Toronto Star has the video (caution: there's a lot of profanity), possibly taken with a cellphone. The release of the footage by the news outlet spurred another apology from Ford -- who recently admitted to and apologized for having smoked crack cocaine .  He calls the video "extremely embarrassing" and says he was "extremely inebriated" at the time.
