It was revealed last week by the New York Times that the Veep filmed a quick stint with the cast in July, but it was kept under wraps during the election season because a provision would have required a similar cameo from Republican VP nominee Paul Ryan.

At just under a minute, Biden's scene is near perfect. Leslie Knope (played by Amy Poehler) is treated to a surprise meeting with her longtime crush, which is a running joke on the show. Biden warmly greets the overwhelmed, giddy Knope, and thanks her for serving her Indiana community with such dedication. She touches his hands, holds his face and swoons, "You're very handsome." We're also given a few flashes of his signature pearly whites. That smile!

1. KONY 2012

Invisible Children, a movement seeking to end the conflict in Uganda, created the film Kony 2012. They hoped it would accelerate the arrest of Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) leader Joseph Kony, who has been kidnapping and abducting Uganda’s youth for nearly three decades. With more than 100 million views in six days, Kony 2012 became the most viral video in history. The movement, however, ended quite strangely. The video's creator, Jason Russell, was detained in the Pacific Beach neighborhood, with charges of public drunkenness and lewd behavior.
