Bill Clinton 'covers' Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines

Former US President Bill Clinton may be better known for playing the saxophone than his singing, but thanks to YouTube user baracksdubs that could be a thing of the past.

Thanks to some clever editing, Clinton has taken on one of the sounds of the summer, Robin Thicke's controversial hit Blurred Lines.

It is not the first time baracksdubs has got creative with a President and a chart topper - previous clips include Barack Obama singing Daft Punk's Get Lucky, LMFAO's Sexy and I Know It and Carly Rae Jepson's Call Me Maybe.

Video of Brazilian goat on the rampage goes viral

An angry goat in Brazil has earned online notoriety after it was filmed attacking people in a Brazilian town near Sao Paulo.

Onlookers in the town of Londrina are seen running away to escape the wrath of the goat, however some residents were not so lucky.

The goat initially looks like it is innocently following a woman carrying shopping, but it quickly turns nasty when it knocks the woman down.

One man who unsuccessfully tried to retaliate against the goat was swiftly forced to the ground, before he tried to evade the animal by running around a tree.

The perpetrator even butted a moving motorcycle; nearly knocking two riders off of the bike.

The video, posted on YouTube, has been viewed more than two and a half million times around the world.

YouTube to close in bid to find 'best video in the world'

One April Fools' Day prank that has provoked a strong reaction is YouTube's claim that it is planning to stop accepting video uploads.

In a video addressed to users, a YouTube employee announces that the entire website was an attempt to "find the best video in the world" and that the company will spend the next decade reviewing all of the entries to pick a winner.

One user commented on the video "I almost had a heart attack ... That wasn't funny," while another expressed their dismay at having to "wait a whole 10 years" for the winner to be announced.
