BuzzFeed Week In Review: The Most Viral Stories Of The Last Week

Desperate to remain relevant, Charlie Sheen tried his hand at pulling a Trump: questioning the validity of Obama’s birth certificate. If that doesn’t work, he could try trading antisemitic slurs with Mel Gibson. I bet they get along great.

A really excellently shot video of what appeared to be an injured extra terrestrial in Russia went viral this week, accruing over one million views per day, for the last 6 days. In fact, the video as so well-composed that paranormal investigator Benjamin Radford is hedging his bets on it being a hoax.

The must-see cute animal video of the week is Cookie, the ticklish baby penguin at the Cincinnati Zoo. Uploaded over a year ago, the video laid dormant until being discovered by Reddit on the 15th, accruing 2 million views in the past seven days.

This resume from a slacker with a sense of humor turned up at a restaurant in the UK recently, before becoming one of the week’s most shared images.

And lastly, BuzzFeed’s own Gavon Laessig curated a list of 45 McDonald’s Items Not Available In the US, making many of us wish we could get a McKroket and McBeer for lunch.
