A seagull makes off with a video camera and takes it for a ride, capturing soaring footage along the way.
Another video camera is mounted on a hula hoop and shows the nausea-inducing view from a rapidly spinning hula hoop.
More and more of videos are surfacing on YouTube that show life from a different perspective, whether by accident or on purpose.
Here are five of the best:
1. Dog: Ball. Treat. Squirrel!
A camera is mounted on the back of a small dog to capture it exploring a backyard, chasing a ball and begging for a treat. Watching the little guy stop to think and flick his ears around is truly adorable. (But look out for that tree!)
2. Seagull: Look out below!
I challenge you to stop your jaw from dropping when the seagull starts flying. The owner of the video camera the bird "borrowed" in Cannes got it back after finding it on top of a castle wall.
3. Hula hoop: Kept in the loop
If you're prone to motion sickness, you may want to get the barf bag ready for this one. Otherwise, enjoy getting spun and turned and twisted and rolled around an Alberta woman's body.
4. Fishing: Hooked, literally
It must not be that easy to attach underwater camera equipment to a skinny fishing pole or a slippery fish, so this video captures a side-by-side look at hooking the one that didn't get away.
5. Mountain biking: Rocky ride
You may feel the need to put on your own helmet during this video because the footage is so bumpy. But the worst part is waiting to see whether the rider crashes.
