What’s amazing about trending videos is that they’re unique, funny, and unforgettable. In some instances, they can also provide useful tips. Take for example Filipino “staycationer” Arjay Asejo who joined the travel craze in social media in a very unconventional way. With his smartphone and selfie stick, Asejo took 360 clips of him in different parts of his house, including the kitchen, bathroom, and stock room. He hilariously mimicked cliff diving — dropping to the sofa and bed. Asejo’s video earned 32,000 likes and 10,000 shares on Facebook.
