Your Week in Viral Videos: Music done right ... well, most of the time

It just doesn't get any better than men who chug oil for a living playing air instruments and lip synching to one of the 1980s greatest hits.

(RNN) - Admit it, you sing in the shower, and you sometimes fantasize about what it's like to switch roles with the actor in your favorite TV show or movie.

And some people who are really far off center do both at the same time. "Norm" from Cheers belting out '80s tunes? Oh yeah, wait for it, wait for it …

Every conceivable B-list celebrity from the last three decades was mashed up in a cover of The Beatles hit Let it Be - a fitting metaphor for most of their careers, actually.

And we mean to tell ya, everyone is there - Dolph Lundgren, Tonya Harding, Tubbs from Miami Vice - whatever his real name is.

Even Fab Morvan from Milli Vanilli is in the video. How fitting is that?

It's not a new video by any means, and the story behind it is somewhat complicated. But A.) the awesomeness makes up for that, and B.) it's the perfect Saturday time waster.

Totally Toto

What do you get when the crew of an oil ship off the coast of Africa sings the song Africa?

You get a visual party that could last for days, that's what.

The crew members of the Bourbon Peridot do this song more justice than YWVV could possibly give them credit for. If you want to experience a total trip out, skip ahead to the 3:50 mark. Priceless.

Hats off to these guys for doing this in a way that only men with total dudeness flowing through their veins could.

Sometimes, there are moments when you pause and say to yourself, "Yep, that just happened."

This is about to be one of those moments.

Trying to grasp words that properly describe hearing Lynyrd Skynyrd's most famous song in the middle of a Mexican restaurant … Nope, can't do it. Just watch.

By the way, if you give this a thumbs down, YWVV will find you, tie you down and make you listen to something awful for 24 hours straight.

Heart of a champion

Now things take a turn toward the serious - as in cancer serious.

The description in this video described a girl named Olivia Wise who is battling brain cancer. She recorded a studio cover of Katy Perry's Roar while in a wheelchair because she was too weak to stand.

WARNING: This video is disturbingly heart-tugging and may require the use of several tissues.

ALSO WATCH:

On second thought, don't watch this. You'll come down with stupid.

We warned you. This is almost as bad, though.

109 million views? Really? And we wonder why … nevermind.
