Do something incredibly stupid (most often this one), super moving, or just plain surprising, and you could be the next internet sensation.

Maybe it is a laughable video of a clueless dude getting “attacked” at Ubud Monkey Forest by a band of banana-hungry monkeys, or maybe it’s the story of how an action camera full of memories lost in Australia made its way all the way to its proper owners, kilometers away, in Bali (true story).Or how about the time the video of these badass Bali dogs cruising on top of a motorbike packed high with chopped grass was just everywhere?
