Top videos: Biden freezes, ice-cold legend and Dusty celebrates

People froze, a dog conquered new heights in the kitchen and guess who is still dancing in the dark?

We have more evidence that bears are taking over and unless there is a jet-skiing squirrel at the mall, why would anyone bother going?

Aussie sets world record

Ariarne Titmus set a 200m freestyle world record at Australia’s Olympic swimming trials in Brisbane on Wednesday night.

The 23-year-old clocked one minute 52.23 seconds, meaning she now holds the 200m and 400m freestyle world records and is reigning Olympic champion in both events.

Biden freezes

US President Joe Biden quite literally froze and didn’t move for a moment while at a Juneteenth celebration this week.

Of course the video was used by Biden’s political opponents as ammunition, with Republicans saying the 81-year-old is too old for another term in the White House.

An ice-cold legend

Tennis great Pat Rafter made quite the splash when he plunged into icy cold water dressed as AC/DC’s Brian Johnson.

He was among the celebrities who participated in the annual slide for the Big Freeze clash between Collingwood and Melbourne to raise money for Neale Daniher’s FightMND.


Just brilliant stuff for #BigFreeze10 from tennis legend Pat Rafter! #afl #footy #footytiktok

Chappell Roan, an American icon

Pop sensation and arguably, the woman of the moment, Chappell Roan performed at the Gov Ball, as an American icon.

Courteney Cox is still dancing, in the dark

In case you forgot, Courteney Cox was the girl who danced with the Boss, aka, Bruce Springsteen.

The Friends star recreated the Dancing in the Dark dance on TikTok, reminding everyone she has always been an icon.

A huge crowd at a mall in the US witnessed something magical this week – a jet-skiing squirrel.

The squirrel’s name is reportedly Twiggy and frankly, seeing a jet-skiing squirrel is the only reason to go to the mall.

Bear’s hammock

The bears are quite literally taking over. One black bear was seen using someone’s hammock this week.

“Unacceptable,” a human said, while the bear and its companion looked utterly unbothered.


It seems black bears are hammock experts- with a skill even some humans can’t master. A couple of black bears made themselves at home at a property in Vermont, where one was spotted relaxing on hammock. Homeowner Noah Dweck, said that bears are pretty active in the area and are “used to human contact”, so he couldn’t help but find the funny side. “I’m assuming they have found other people’s hammocks before. To be honest, it was pretty impressive,” said the Waitsfield local. The cheeky trespassers were safely shooed away. #10NewsFirst #vermont #bears #animalsoftiktok

Smiling staffy

A smiley staffy was treated to places around the home he wouldn’t usually see this week.

The staffy got to see the inside of the fridge, the washing machine and the microwave. What an adventure.
