Carrie Underwood's latest song Smoke Break has been tearing up the charts. She actually released an official music video for it back in August, but since the song has been connecting so well with the fans she asked people to send in photos and videos of what they considered their "smoke break" aka whatever they do to relax. She took her favorites and made a fan video that was released on Monday... Check it out below:

*Edit: apparently that link isn't showing up for everybody so here is a link to the Rolling Stone article about it:

and for good measure here is the official video she released earlier this year:

Okay can we first acknowledge the picture above?  Let's think about all the time and effort that went into that masterpiece. Think of the people involved... the two guys in the photo (are they professional Hard Hat models? Engineers who had free time? Did they plan to wear the same shirt or was that a happy accident?), there was a photographer, probably people to help with background and lights, a whole team!  All just to make sure we know what the chinstraps on the helmets look like fitted on a person.... the serene looks off into the distance are just a hilarious bonus.  

I mention all that for two reasons, one is that picture is hands down the funniest thing I will see all day... and two because it is that attention to detail that sets MSA Safety apart.  They have been around for over 100 years (Founded in 1914), and for that entire time the safety of workers in dangerous industries have been their primary concern.  If you work in the Oil & Gas fields then you probably already know about MSA, but if not you need to check out their intense line of safety products.  Like the V-Gard Hard Hats (with or without the fashionable chin straps pictured above), the ALTAIR Gas Detectors, or their line of Fall Protection Equipment

But talk is cheap, and as the picture above proves... images speak volumes... so let's see this stuff in action:


As one of the YouTube comments on that video says " The classic is still the best."  So look up MSA Safety for yourself and see why, you might even win an awesome prize like a YETI Cooler (enter here)... I'm gonna go look up how to get into the hard helmet modeling industry.

So here is what happened... last week Kelley Peterson posted a blog about Guinea Pigs

And I was like.. yea that is pretty cute but not as cute as a pug snoring in a bucket of water.  

Then Kelley came back and was like yea that is pretty cool but not as cool as Dancing Spiders! 

And I admit... I thought she had me beat... but then I discovered...

A Hamster.  On a Piano.  Eating Popcorn. 


Your move Kelley.

Kelley Peterson posted her Guinea Pigs swimming around video and I thought to myself... that is pretty cute... but then I saw this video and was like... this is much cuter and also hilarious. 

It is a pug snoring in a bucket of water... case closed.


Live the dream for all of us Pug. 

also... see if you can hear the bonus sound around the :13 mark.
