This week, the Internet became obsessed with a tiny piglet in a wheelchair, as well as Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) taking a sip from a miniature water bottle during his response to President Obama's State of the Union Address. In celebrity news, Zach Galifianakis interviewed Oscar hopefuls, and X Factor winner Tate Stevens debuted his first single during the Grammy Awards. And a little boy tried to tell his mother he hadn't been snacking when all evidence pointed to the contrary. Check out those clips and more in our Top Videos of the Week:
Chris P. Bacon, Pig on Wheels: This little piggy was given up by his owner because she couldn't take care of him, since he was born without the use of his hind legs. But he was adopted by Florida veterinarian Dr. Len Lucero, who fashioned him a wheelchair out of K'nex toys. Now a month old, Chris is scooting around like nobody's business — and Lucero continues to make adjustments to the contraption as Chris grows. If this video of him learning to use his wheels at 10 days old doesn't put you in a good mood, we're not sure what will.
Caught Red (Sprinkle) Faced: That's his story, and he's sticking to it! But this 3-year-old should be more careful about covering his tracks (and his face) if he's going to sneak into the sprinkle container while his mom isn't looking.
Between Two Ferns Oscar Edition: If you see one movie before the Oscars on Feb. 24 ... well, it should probably be Silver Linings Playbook or Les Miserables. But if you watch one interview, it should be Zach Galifianakis chatting with some of the nominees on his Funny or Die talk show, Between Two Ferns, in which he asks hard-hitting questions like, "Do you look at pennies differently now?" to Lincoln star Sally Field. Check out the segment with Field, Bradley Cooper and Jessica Chastain below, and go here to see interviews with Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, Naomi Watts, Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams.
State of the Union in Two Minutes: Kudos to the Wall Street Journal for boiling the important moments of President Obama's 90-minute State of the Union Address into a handy two-minute summary for those who couldn't (or didn't want to) watch the whole thing.
Marco Rubio's Water Break: And kudos to Sen. Marco Rubio, whose awkward grab for a drink of water in the middle of delivering the Republican response to the State of the Union, and subsequent swigging from a miniature Poland Springs bottle, was a gift to bloggers, comedians and GIF-makers everywhere.
Jimmy Kimmel: Shoveling Snow Down People's Pants: In an effort to stand in solidarity with viewers in the Northeast who are digging out from last weekend's winter storm, Jimmy Kimmel enlisted the help of his cousin Sal to shift some of the pain to the West Coast. Though it was 65 and sunny in California, Sal brought a homemade blizzard of sorts to pedestrians on Hollywood Boulevard — by shoveling snow down their pants.
Tate Stevens' Pepsi Commercial: As part of his prize package for winning The X Factor, Stevens debuted his first single, "Holler If You're With Me," in a Pepsi commercial that aired during last Sunday's Grammy Awards. What do you think of the song?
