Watch Taylor Swift, Prince William, and Jon Bon Jovi sing 'Livin' on a Prayer' -- VIDEO

Who says celebrities and royals aren’t just like us? They, too, enjoy jamming to ’80s hair-band tunes. Except if you’re Taylor Swift or Prince William, you can sing along with Jon Bon Jovi in person.

At Tuesday’s Winter Whites Gala at Kensington Palace, Jon Bon Jovi performed a stripped-down version of the Bon Jovi classic “Livin’ on a Prayer,” backed up by the future king of England and Swift, who also performed separately at the event. The first annual gala was in support of Centrepoint, a U.K.-based charity focused on aiding homeless young people.

Watch the country-pop star give her best “Woo!” girl impression and the prince/newbie dad white-man-dance with the Lord Protector of New Jersey here:

'Reaping Ball': A 'Hunger Games' parody of 'Wrecking Ball' we didn't know we needed until now

Catching Fire fever burns strong, this time incorporating that other “girl on fire” — Miley Cyrus. Posted by YouTube user twentyfirstrecords, “Reaping Ball” is a hilarious — and super-catchy — Hunger Games parody video set to the tune of Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball.”

Created by parody band The Arena, the song is just the latest Hunger Games-inspired single. Last year, The Arena debuted “We Found Love (In the Hunger Games) – Peeta vs. Rihanna Remix.” Not to leave Team Gale without a radio-worthy theme song, this year’s track is sung from Gale’s perspective, pining for Katniss, who is in a “complicated” relationship with Peeta. “Gale” croons such perfect lines as “We don’t have to live this way,/ You’re my Mockingjay./ Let’s win this one for Rue.”

What makes the “Wrecking Ball” re-work even more interesting is that Liam Hemsworth, who plays Gale in the films, was engaged to Miley Cyrus, who may or may not have recorded the breakup song about her relationship with the Aussie actor. So that means it’s a parody video from the perspective of the character, played by the actor the original song might be about. So many layers!

Chip Chocolate talks 'Cookie Dance', bathing in milk, and a rap battle with the Cookie Monster

Do you know the cookie dance? And no, it’s not a dance you do to summon cookies, but rather one you do to celebrate them. Rapper Chip Chocolate (real name: Jesse Wellens) created his first song, “Cookie Dance,” out of nothing but a young boy’s pure love of the delectable dessert. And now that Chip Chocolate’s first music video has more than a million views, the cookie dance is no longer just a childhood dream.

We caught up with Chip Chocolate to find out about his inspiration, career goals, and if he was really sitting in a tub of milk:

Giant group recreates 'When Harry Met Sally' deli scene: We'll have what they're having -- VIDEO

Yes… yes… yes!

Improv Everywhere — a self-described “New York City-based prank collective that causes scenes of chaos and joy in public places” — recently took a group outing to Katz’s Deli on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The restaurant is justly famous for its corned beef and pastrami — but most non-New Yorkers probably know it best as the setting for an iconic scene from 1989′s rom-com classic When Harry Met Sally… (Five words: “I’ll have what she’s having.”)

The resulting video is indeed chaotic, joyful, and emphatically NSFW. It may also induce some serious pickle cravings. Watch below — and turn up your speakers, if you dare.

'Cookie Dance': A viral video bathed in milk -- VIDEO

A lot of kids have experienced the moment where a parent told them to put down a cookie and pick up a piece of fruit, and 95 percent of those kids probably ran away with a cookie still in hand. But what happens if you really examine that moment, and in turn, dedicate your whole life to cookies? That’s the premise of Chip Chocolate’s music video “Cookie Dance,” the latest YouTube trend.

After a mother tells her son he won’t amount to anything if he eats a cookie, the young boy in the video decides he will defy those odds and amount to something after all: A cookie pimp who spends his days bathing in milk, eating homemade Mrs. Fields cookies — she’s literally in his kitchen — and teaching people the cookie dance. Oh, and don’t forget the slutty girl scouts that dance with him.

Hey, the guy is all about his chips and all about his dough. Wouldn’t you dance with him if you could? Personally, I’d rather enjoy some “cookie sushi” while lounging nearby, but if you’re feeling the beat,  you can learn the dance yourself in the video below:

These Russian policemen recorded the year's most delightful 'Get Lucky' cover -- VIDEO

Why are these uniformed Russian cops singing a heavily accented, stage-fog-obscured, dorkily funky cover of Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams’s “Get Lucky”? Unless you can read Cyrillic script, you’ll have to be content with this Google Translated explanation: “Go to our office got the video for Get lucky, that ensemble MIA, probably preparing for the Kremlin concert on November 10.” Well, there you go!

Video of David Hasselhoff 'singing' Fresh Prince theme song is everything you want it to be -- VIDEO

“David Hasselhoff singing the Fresh Prince theme song” is a phrase Hump Day dreams were made of.

The cut-together clips feature all of Hasselhoff’s iconic roles, meaning — for the few of you out there that this applies to — your Knight Rider/Fresh Prince cross-over fanfiction just got a go-to visual.

The best part? The video is called Rip-Hoff pt. 1, people. Check it out below, and start crossing your fingers pt. 2 features The Golden Girls.

“And then he ran into my tentacles. He ran into my tentacles EIGHT TIMES!”

Todrick Hall started his career as a finalist on American Idol, but the filmmaker has since become something of a YouTube sensation among a certain type of pop culture enthusiast. He’s riffed on Beauty and the Beast, CinderellaMean Girls and The Hunger Games, and just in time for Halloween, Hall has debuted his latest subject: Disney villains and singing murderers.

Hall has enlisted the likes of fellow Idol vet Adam Lambert, Glee’s Amber Riley, So You Think You Can Dance alum Blake McGrath, and more for “Spell Block Tango,” a delightful revision of “Cell Block Tango” (from the Broadway musical Chicago) as performed by some of Disney’s greatest jilted ladies — and Scar, duh. How else could these villains channel their frustration with the animated heroes who had it coming?

The whole thing is an epic watch, and an absolute must-see if you’re a fan of Disney, Chicago, or just well-choreographed production numbers in general. Behold!

Ohio State's marching band performs awesome tribute to Hollywood blockbusters -- VIDEO

Why can’t every halftime show be performed by the Best Damn Band in the Land?

Earlier this month, The Ohio State University’s resident ambulatory geniuses wowed the world with an intricate tribute to Michael Jackson. Just one week later, they pulled off another stunning feat — a blockbuster-themed show in which band members formed shapes including Superman in flight, dueling pirate ships, a nail-biter of a Quidditch game, and even Jurassic Park‘s resident T-rex devouring a Michigan football player… then spitting out his helmet.

In short: The Super Bowl could stand to learn a thing or two from the NCAA. Are you listening, Bruno Mars?
