The 9 best images, memes, videos, and more to emerge from the great digital playground — from a clever YouTube easter egg to Scientifically Accurate Spider-Man

1. YouTube does the Harlem ShakeThe video service decided to have a little fun with the dance meme that refuses to die. To activate this fun little easter egg, just type  "do the Harlem Shake" in the search bar. (Via Hypervocal)

4. A fake Thought Catalog post from an animal's point of view that is very good"How to Maintain the Illusion That You are a Hot, Confused Twentysomething, When in Actuality You Are a Gigantic, Bloodthirsty Grizzly Bear" is an essay — at least I think it's an essay? — that is so demented and weird it should be required reading. (Via Tumblr)

5. A real Thought Catalog post from an animal's point of view that is also very goodThe Millennial™-baiting angst site published a real thing titled "When I am a Dog I am Barking" that's similarly demented and weird... and actually quite good. (Via Thought Catalog)

7. The mystery behind Chipotle's secret 1,500-calorie super burritoChances are you've never heard of the "quesarito." That's okay.
