    For most adults, Cinco de Mayo is a time to slip out of work early and hit the local cantina for their 2-for-1 margarita special.

  • Father and Son Get Christmas Surprise, 'AFV'-Style

    Christmas is a time for counting your blessings, spreading peace and goodwill to your fellow man — and, of course, aiming a camera at your loved ones while you shock them with a huge, life-altering surprise. Such is the case in the very festive AFV clip above, in which a mom urges her husband and son — both decked out in adorable elf costumes, we might add — to open an “early Christmas present” from Santa.

  • Today's 'AFV' Montage: How NOT to Cook Thanksgiving Dinner

    In less than a week, Americans will be gathering for Thanksgiving feasts with families, friends — and probably a few kids who insisted on “helping” cook the meal. Knowing this, the folks at America’s Funniest Home Videos have prepared a handy how-to video for those whose little ones will be joining them in the kitchen on Thursday.  Related: Check out Yahoo Screen’s ‘AFV’ Channel for More Videos Among the lessons: Your dad’s forehead is a great place to crack an egg; most refrigerator shelves cannot bear the weight of a small child; long hair and electric mixers are a recipe for disaster; and finally, toasters are scary. There’s also an informative beverage montage-within-the-montage which clearly demonstrates all the various reasons why you should not let your toddler fill the water glasses at the Thanksgiving table.

  • Say 'Namaste' to the Weekend With These 'AFV' Yoga Fails

    We all have one of those annoying friends who’s always talking about her fabulous yoga class and how her “practice” really makes her feel “at peace” blah blah blah… But what those friends aren’t telling you is that the ancient art of yoga can lead to some pretty hilarious wipeouts. Fortunately our friends at AFV have compiled a representative sampling of yoga fails — enough to make you reconsider taking that “beginners vinyasa” class later this afternoon. Related: Check out Yahoo Screen’s ‘AFV’ Channel for More Videos As always, we have several questions. One: Why would anyone try to do yoga — which requires impeccable balance and is best done on a flat surface — on top of a picnic table or while standing on a bed?

  • Happy Halloween From This Montage of Classic 'AFV' Scares

    The best part about Halloween — besides gorging on candy and then enjoying the subsequent sugar high, of course — is watching AFV compilations of people getting scared witless. Though my all-time favorite scare is a one-off I like to call “Dracula Jazz Hands,” the above montage is a close second, in large part due to this totally awesome lady from the ‘80s who doesn’t realize she’s about to be accosted by a closet goblin: Of course, I do not in any way condone scaring your sleeping children by pretending to be a chainsaw-wielding maniac (seriously, who DOES that?), but I think we can all agree that the old the-scarecrow-is-ALIVE gag is good, wholesome fun: Related: Check out Yahoo Screen’s ‘AFV’ Channel for More Videos Because you can never have too many trick-or-treat scares, check out this second montage, featuring a weiner dog chasing a tiny Dracula away from his front door, along with a very grumpy pint-sized Garfield. Happy Halloween, everyone!

  • These 'AFV' Buzzer Beaters Will Get You Ready for Basketball Season

    According to reliable sources, basketball season is almost upon us. And while basketball is a sport that usually involves things like “passing” and “dribbling” and “free throws,” the future NBA all-stars in this AFV compilation have no time for such foolishness. Instead, they like to score their points by hurling the ball wildly across the court with such pinpoint accuracy the crowd can’t help but go crazy when the shot goes in. Honestly, if the real NBA was this exciting I’d actually watch a basketball game rather than leaving the room when my husband turns it on.

  • Happy Saturday! Enjoy This Angry Animals Montage From 'AFV'

    If there’s two things you should take away from the above AFV compilation entitled “America’s Angriest Animals,” it’s this: 1) Geese just may be nature’s fiercest creatures, and 2) Animals, like many celebrities, really don’t enjoy having a camera shoved in their face. Of course, some of the situations in this video are unavoidable — you’ve gotta give your pooch a bath occasionally, and yeah, he’s probably not gonna be happy about it — but other folks featured here just put themselves in harm’s way for no good reason. Related: Check out Yahoo Screen’s ‘AFV’ Channel for More Videos For example, what IS that guy doing in the llama pen? No one likes to have his or her personal space invaded, so you can’t blame the llama for kicking the dude in the back.

  • Happy Hockey Season From 'AFV'!

    The NHL kicked off the new season on Oct. 7, and that’s reason enough to celebrate with an AFV montage of ice follies. Judging from the above video, hockey just might be the most mishap-prone sport ever: Ice + sticks + waist-high rink walls + bulky pads = lots of flips, falls, crashes, slips, collisions, and faceplants.  Related: Check out Yahoo Screen’s ‘AFV’ Channel for More Videos While no one gets hit in the groin in the above montage — a fact that will please new AFV host Alfonso Ribeiro, who isn’t a fan of crotch-shots — it does feature some beautiful pratfalls, including a jolly jester mascot crashing into the side of the rink, a kid getting a hockey mask full of snow, and a guy body-checking himself into the boards (with glass-shattering results). Even if you don’t know your blockers from your blue lines, you’ll enjoy AFV’s hockey tribute — after all, wipeout humor is universal.

Or How long were those girls grounded after shattering the glass coffee table?
