This sweat-inducing video brings new meaning to the phrase "Don't look down!"

Rock climber Alex Honnold is known for his free solo ascents of enormous rock walls, which means that he forgoes ropes, harnesses and other protective gear while climbing. In this clip from YouTube climbing channel REEL ROCK, Honnold performs his signature climb up El Sendero Luminoso, a 15,000-foot wall in Mexico

The terrifying clip is a preview for a film about Honnold's ascent that is set to premiere on The North Face's YouTube channel

Feed-twFeed-fb

It's almost Valentine's Day, and maybe you're already seeing red: Facebook invites to Valentine's bashes, Instagram uploads of the perfect concert tickets (aka the "best gift ever"), couples changing their profile pictures to oh-so-cute selfies with each other and so on.

Cupid is coming to a News Feed near you, and you're going to have to decide how to act. Sure, you could stick with the basics — flowers, chocolate and the like — but if you want to really impress that special someone, you're going to have to kick it up a notch. And all you have to do is sign in to your social media accounts

Successful viral videos — the ones that reach a million hits on YouTube and bring your workday to a grinding halt — have to surprise the viewer and tug at her heartstrings.

Feed-twFeed-fb

YouTube videos are the glue that hold this modern Internet society together. Without them, where would we be? Watching cats in real life instead?

YouTube is such a force in today's culture that everyone with access to a computer knows and recognizes the emotions that accompany watching and sharing videos. Whether it's depicting a skateboarding cat or hot air balloon tightrope walkers, the cycle of emotions that accompanies the videos is pretty much always the same.

Rob Ford Unveils YouTube Talk Show 'Ford Nation'
Feed-twFeed-fb

Before politics or pleas of forgiveness, let's talk food: Mayor Rob Ford style. The embattled Toronto Mayor's YouTube show "Ford Nation," premiers next week, but Ford released a 30-second teaser on Thursday.

In the preview clip, the portly politician begins with a sarcastic dig at his equally hefty brother, Doug, about his weight and favorite food.

Nothing but net, dudes

The latest video from Dude Perfect features more ice-cold skills from the energetic and upbeat crew. The gang traveled to USSA Center of Excellence in Park City, Utah, to hang out with some gold-medal hopefuls — and to sink a few baskets while they were at it.

The guys perform some impressive basketball tricks at the training center, making perfect shots from long distances and deep in snow. They also got to rub shoulders with some of the most talented winter Olympians in the world, including Team USA's freestyle skier Hannah Kearney and snowboarder Faye Gulini, French freestyle skier Albert Bedouet, and Canadian freestyle skier Mikaël Kingsbury.

Feed-twFeed-fb

As fans of The Beatles celebrate the 50th anniversary of the band invading America with their mop-topped hair and infectiously catchy melodies, we decided to take a deeper dive into their impressive discography.

Over the decades, the Fab Four's songs have been unpacked and analyzed and accused of everything under the sun — far too many times to count. You can't talk about "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" without someone mentioning the LSD.

We called on our biggest Beatlemaniacs to debunk and decipher some of the references and hidden gems peppered throughout the years. Take a look and a listen. Read more...
