Florida Man took the night off from causing mayhem, and Florida Woman took his place.

Whitney Beall, a 23-year-old woman, was arrested this weekend for drunk driving after using the mobile app Periscope to live-stream her entire ride.

"I'm super drunk, I don't even know how to explain it," she says to start the 11-minute broadcast below. The entire broadcast lasted over 40 minutes.

With tips from viewers and one officer using their own Periscope account to spot landmarks, police were able to safely stop Beall.

"Officers advised that they smelled the odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from Beall, her speech was slow; her eyes were bloodshot and glossy," a Lakeland PD Facebook post said.

It seems Florida Woman got the attention she wanted. And luckily no one was hurt.

Using only actual paper and dozens of animators, PES made this gorgeous stop motion, flipbook-like story of the evolution of Honda.

Sure, it's advertising, but it's a thing of real creative beauty that looks so well-crafted in its handmade style.

They even made a really neat behind-the-scenes video:



PES is no stranger to beautiful, viral videos. They were the ones behind 2008's Western Spaghetti:



And the similar, but still lovely, Fresh Guacamole from 2013:

A variety of car manufactures have begun to make the car less of a viewing obstacle when you're driving around all those gnarly sk8r bois and CNET has put together a great round up of all the latest innovations.

One of the dumbest things highlighted in the video is a Mercedes Benz marketing campaign from a few years ago.





Regardless, we're so close to the impossible dream.

When you have nothing but open, largely barren desert and cars, you make fun where you can.

The new thing in Saudi Arabia is to video your car rolling along of its own accord while you do any manner of thing you want on the hood, roof, back or being dragged behind it.

You also need to have this song playing, which Google probably incorrectly translates as Yesterday, My Heart Carefree.

You don't even have to have a car, per se.



Here's my favorite:



This isn't the first car-based meme that has come out of Saudi Arabia. Last year, doing insane things while balanced on two tires was all the rage.

Wait for it… the singing isn’t the only thing that blows.

Four friends were having the time of their lives on a little road trip singing Player’s “Baby Come Back,” when one of the tires exploded ruining everything.

Fortunately no one was hurt, but they appear to be a bit shaken up by the incident.

And despite the selfie stick disaster causing the camera to spiral out of control, they still managed to get their 15 minutes of fame on YouTube.

Phew!

“We’re not posting that video,” one of the girls says at the end.

Famous last words.

Holy smokes!

A woman in Jerusalem was arrested this week for setting fire to a car because someone wouldn’t give her a cigarette.

Security cam footage shows the woman approaching a man at a gas station. After the rejection, she takes out a lighter and ignites the gas tank, which quickly bursts into flames.

Fortunately, the guy pulls out the pump preventing the car from exploding.

Here’s the appropriate way to respond to being denied a cigarette.

He should change his license plate to just say NOPE.

This massive spider could not have found a more inconvenient place to hang out, aside from on your face.

“Nothing worse than opening your car door and feeling something furry!” writes the uploader in the caption.

They found him just chilling beneath the handle, presumably when they stuck their hand up there to open it.

“It’s a bloody super spider,” he says. “Oh jesus!”

Fortunately, for everyone involved, it eventually plops down and scurries away.
