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.

Poor Kate Upton. Can't a bikini-clad bombshell dance the "cat daddy" in peace? The answer would appear to be no, judging by this week's controversy over a steamy shoot with fashion photographer Terry Richardson that had Upton taking a break from posing to show off her cat daddy skills. In a video posted Monday to Richardson's blog Terry's Diary, Upton, on a break between shots, performs the cat daddy, a dance move made popular by the group the Rej3ctz and Chris Brown.

Kobe Bryant, void of nagging injuries for the first time in a few seasons, seems to have found new spring in his legs and showed the Clippers his dunking ability Friday night. It came without the aid of a lob. Against Clippers point guard Chris Paul. The Lakers' All-Star guard, now in his 17th season, deflected a pass by Paul near the free-throw line, tracked it down along the sideline and went the length of the court before throwing down a one-handed dunk over Paul. You can see it all unfold in the video above.

If there's one thing to be admired about Icona Pop -- and there are actually many! -- it's the utter shamelessness with which this Swedish electro duo puts its point across. Few pop acts, for instance, have ever captured the brat-tacular glee of being young as effectively as Icona Pop does in its monster stadium-rave hit " I Love It ," in which Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt dismiss some old dude with thrilling disdain: "You're from the '70s, but I'm a '90s bitch. " So Pop & Hiss can't really claim to be surprised by how openly the video for the group's latest single, "All Night," doubles as a commercial for Absolut -- specifically for the Swedish vodka maker's new Absolut Tune, a grim-sounding combination of vodka and New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.

A video of a 1990s-era Herman Cain signing an ode to pizza to the tune of John Lennon's "Imagine" now making the rounds on the Web is hotter than an extra-large double cheese. It was uncovered by the Omaha World-Herald in the course of doing a story on the presidential candidate's days as chief executive of the Godfather's Pizza chain. Cain lived in Omaha for most of the 1990s. As Slate first reported, the lyrics of the song go like this: Imagine there's no pizza I couldn't if I tried Eating only tacos Or Kentucky Fried Imagine only burgers It's frightening and sad You're lucky you have pizza To feed your kids for you Only frosting or cookies And no dishes you must do Imagine eating pizza Each and every day The World-Herald story has who knew Cain in those days crediting him with helping to stabilize the Godfather's chain.
