Top videos: Impressive Rocky impression, sharks v croc

This week, Barbie and Oppenheimer actors sat down for a chat, an actress had a relatable moment with fans, and a child did his best Rocky impression for Sylvester Stallone.

A crocodile went head to head with some sharks, and some polar bears celebrated their second birthday in style.

PM’s tearful announcement

This week, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese choked up while announcing that Labor MP Peta Murphy had died.

Murphy, the MP for the Victorian seat of Dunkley, died age 50. In 2019, just two weeks before she was sworn in, the breast cancer she had previously beaten returned.

Shark v croc

Up in the top end, a crocodile was surrounded by and outnumbered sharks.

In the incredible footage, a shark does seem to try to have a go at the croc, who seems to make it out unscathed.

Home explosion

A home in Virginia exploded as police tried to execute a search warrant earlier this week, after reports of shots being fired from inside the home.

An investigation into the explosion is ongoing, the Associated Press reported, however, authorities have said it is believed the home owner, James Yoo, died.

Cillian Murphy knows about the memes

When Margot Robbie and Cillian Murphy sat down for Variety‘s Actors on Actors, he revealed he does know what a meme is and he knows about the Barbenheimer memes.

Murphy credited his teenage sons for keeping him in the loop and acknowledged the meme about him not knowing what a meme is. “Inception of memes,” Robbie quipped.

Anya Taylor-Joy’s photo fail

Actor Anya Taylor-Joy had a very relatable moment for iPhone users while greeting fans at Comic Con in São Paulo, where she couldn’t take a photo on an Android.

Every time she tried, she kept locking the phone.

On iPhones you can snap a picture with either volume button.

Early Christmas treat

Christmas came early at Burleigh Heads when several dogs sporting Santa hats were seen cruising by the beach.

It appears the dogs are being pulled along on skateboards (a sleigh) by a man in a lovely shirt (Santa), while another dog walks by his side (Rudolph?!).

Rocky Jr

[Language Warning]: A young Sylvester Stallone fan recited Rocky Balboa’s iconic monologue to Stallone, leaving him in awe.

Ro Knight approached Stallone in Philadelphia and jumped right into it, with Stallone joining in and after Knight was done, the two embraced.

 Roo nails the landing

Pippa, the very sweet and tiny joey, got out of her pouch for the first time and then mastered getting back in.

The orphaned roo did a somersault to get back in and was ready for bed.

Kiss confuses dog

Jasper was very confused by the concept of blowing kisses this week and was desperately looking up to the sky in hopes of spotting it.

The discombobulated dog then looked back at his owner, not really sure what had just happened.

WeRateDogs gave him a 13/10, which is a solid score for the cute moment.

Party for polar bears

Nanook and Noori turned two this week, so naturally Peak Wildlife Park threw a birthday party.

There was cake and new toys and the two seemed to have the best day celebrating.


Happy Birthday, Nanook & Noori! 🎉 The boys are turning 2 today, Let’s wish them the best day! #PolarBearBash #NanookNoori #HappyBirthday #birthdayparty #polarbear #cuteanimals #bear #bearcub #polarbearcub #itsaparty #celebration #conservation #polarbearconservation #cub #animalsoftiktok
