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

THE LION KING Australia: Cast Sings Circle of Life on the Flight Home.”

Given the cost of airfare these days, a Broadway show should come standard with any flight… and, that’s just what travelers onboard Virgin Australia Flight 970 received… an impromptu performance from the cast of The Lion King Australia, who broke out into a high energy, a cappella rendition of “Circle of Life;” because, it’s always good to sing about the life/death cycle on a plane that’s about to take-off.  Surprisingly, no babies were raised “Simba-style” into the aisles.  Opportunity wasted.

Then, there’s this:

“Samuel L. Jackson Performs Slam Poem about Boy Meets World.”

Another week, another viral video compliments of the Tonight Show.  Samuel L. Jackson makes a guest appearance on the late night program, treating viewers to a dramatic poetry session about the ’90’s sitcom, Boy Meets World.  Naturally.  While spitting truth and nostalgia about the classic TV show, the actor famous for his tough guy persona puffs on an electronic cigarette.  Selling out his image was never this easy.

And, Facebook users are hitting the “like” button on:

“Evian Spider-Man – The Amazing Baby and Me 2.”

Speaking of selling-out, product placement is swinging into newsfeeds with this trending commercial.  The mineral water company helps promote its’ product and the upcoming release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie in this ad, that features Spider-Man encountering his baby Spidy self in the reflection of New York City windows.  The pair have a slick dance-off to the song, “Here Comes the Hotstepper” before a round of police sirens remind the adult super hero that duty calls.
