THIS week’s best viral videos come from as far afield as the Ukraine – and as close to home as Easter Road

Raith Rovers wondergoal

Kirkcaldy teenager Tiegan Clark lit up the internet with a 40-yard screamer for Raith Rovers Ladies against Hibs Ladies, during an under-17s game at Easter Road. The 17-year-old’s looping shot drew comparisons to David Beckham’s iconic long-range goal against Wimbledon. Youth Football Scotland picked up the footage and posted it to the Rovers Facebook page. The video has been viewed more than 50,000 times. Take a bow, Tiegan.

“Adele, it’s Lionel”

Probably one of the most inevitable videos in the history of the internet: the beginning of both Adele and Lionel Ritchie’s ‘Hello’ have been blended together into one supreme hit phone conversation. Internet gold.

“It’s not wise to upset a wookiee”

Fresh on the back of the recent Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, Chewbacca popped in another viral video this week after being arrested by police in Ukraine. The wookie had apparently failed to show identification, after chauffeuring Darth Vader to a polling station. Both men involved are members of the outsider political group The Internet Party.

Mike Tyson sings ‘Hotline Bling’

Mike Tyson was on sparkling form on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. He willingly mocked his own speech impediment as he performed a lisp-laden version of R&B artist Drake’s hit single Hotline Bling, itself a huge viral hit.
