And now for something completely different. . .


Would you believe a trio of entertaining videos, two with political themes and a third that’s just delightfully unexpected.

First up, from Mike Diva [the creative name of self-styled MAKER OF VIDEOS/MUSIC/MEMES/DREAMS Mike Dahlquist], a faux Japnese Doald Trump campaign commercial.

From his YouTube account:

Next up, the best eight grade commencement speech we’ve ever heard, via Claudia HD:

8th Grader Impersonating Donald Trump , Cruz , Obama , Hillary & Sanders

The explanation from NBC Chicago:

Jack Aiello is a young teen with big dreams ahead of him — and potentially a slot on “Saturday Night Live” or in the White House.

The Arlington Heights middle schooler has quickly garnered Internet praise for his hilarious graduation speech, which included impersonations of the 2016 presidential candidates.

Aiello’s entire roughly 350-student graduating class was tasked with writing a graduation speech as part of an English assignment. The speeches were then evaluated by teachers and staff before three finalists were selected.

“He was hands down No. 1 because it was going to speak to the kids,” principal Brian Kaye said.

Finally, just an impromptu moment of beauty from the streets of Italy via Assad Baransi:

Palestinian tourist dancing in Italy

Program notes:

This is the stunning moment a proud father encourages his daughter to dance with a street entertainer – with a beautiful end result.

The video shows the Palestinian family watching the man playing the violin before a man’s voice begs the girl to join in.

And it doesn’t take much encouragement before the girl, dressed in a floaty grey dress, agrees to her father’s suggestion and begins dancing to the music.

Passers-by stopped to watch, enthralled by the spontaneous performance.

More from MON ÉVASION:

Rima Baransi, a Palestinian tourist wandering the streets of Italy till she stopped to the playing of Yann Tiersen’s “Comptine d’un autre été: L’aprés-midi” and with the encouragement of her father, she danced ballet to the melody like a butterfly.
