Clip of the Week

Unfortunately, there wasn't a whole lot to choose from this week. It happens sometimes, right? But there were still a few interesting things to watch, so let's do this.

In the world of sports, we had this impressive dunk by Russell Westbrook, as well as this ridiculous throw from Rick Ankiel (which wasn't even the most impressive YouTube effort of Ankiel's career--this was).

We also love animal-related posts here in Clip of the Week, so this guy who almost ran into a bear while texting was a serious contender for this week's top honor.

But the most amusing video I saw this week (in an admittedly weak field) involved this "Safe Sound" device on a Domino's Pizza electric scooter from the Netherlands, which uses a recorded human-generated engine noise to warn passengers that the otherwise-silent vehicle is in its midst. While I can see this getting extremely annoying, it's nevertheless a creative and humorous solution to a growing problem, and maybe it can help prevent issues like, oh I don't know, these accidents from happening.
