VIRAL VIDEOS: Week of October 26th

Audio clip:

Here's what's going viral now on Facebook.

"Child Actor Henry Thomas's Audition."

Coinciding with the 30th anniversary of Steven Spielberg's E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, this vintage video is now making the rounds.  It shows a young Henry Thomas trying-out for the part of Elliot, with an improvisation scene that's a real tear-jerker... earning Spielberg's seal of approval.

Then, there's this:

"Pumpkin Carving IV."

For the fourth consecutive year, fire arms lover Bill Hickok shows the Internet a less messy way to carve a pumpkin.  Ditching a serrated knife for a handgun, this clip shows Hickok using a Colt 1911 to create a jack o' lantern ... carefully pumping the pumpkin with lead to create a face.

And, Facebook users are hitting the "like" button on:

"Iron Man 3 Trailer."

The action-packed clip shows Robert Downey Junior reprising his role as the brilliant billionaire super hero Tony Stark, who faces an attack on his seaside home, exploding Iron Man suits and a new villain.... the Mandarin, played by Sir Ben Kingsley.  The movie hits theaters this May.
