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

“Coldplay – Magic (Official Video).”

It’s Coldplay’s first music video release following front man Chris Martin’s “conscious uncoupling” – or as normal people call it…  a break-up with his wife, Gwyneth Paltrow.  Shot as a black and white silent film, Martin plays two characters.  The first – a sincere magician’s assistant who’s in love with a beautiful, but married illusionist played by actress Zhang Ziyi.  And, the second – her successful, yet abusive husband.

By mastering the art of levitation, the assistant instigates another “conscious uncoupling” – by using his magic to send the bad hubby flying out of the picture – literally.

Then, there’s this:

“RAT on The New York subway!”

As shocking as it sounds, there are rats in New York City.  Even more shocking – they mostly live underground, where the subways are.  Yet, this video of a poor rodent taking the A train to Brooklyn is going viral; probably because of the crazy reactions from the straphangers on board.  Commuters are seen jumping on seats, screaming – even sobbing at the sight of the pesky vermin who is scurrying around, desperate to find an exit of his own.

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

“I’m a Textpert – Rap Battle.”

Definitely geared toward Millennials, this hilarious video from YouTube comedians Rhett and Link is actually a clever PSA for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration about the hazards of texting while driving.  Designed to be entertaining – particularly for those with short attention spans, the pair engage in a phone message battle royale about who has the better texting skills while behind the wheel, until meeting face-to-face in an unfortunate head-on collision.
