Voguing Santa Claus Will Give You Christmas Life

It may have been a year ago, but at Instinct we are still LIVING for the video of voguing Santa Claus. The video was first uploaded on Facebook last year by Maji Claire and was shared almost 6,000 times and instantly became a holiday favorite.

The 20 second video shows a fierce Saint Nick voguing the house down hitting all the spots as he brings the slay instead of the sleigh. Can't wait to see if the ghost of Christmas Present will bring us a voguing Santa and his death-dropping reindeer.

Get yourself some Christmas cheer from the Haus of Claus!

 

This Fraternity's Dance Routine Is Going Viral

Members of Sigma Tau Gamma at the University of Central Oklahoma performed a mash-up dance and cheer routine that has left the internet going nuts. The group, who performed the routine at this year’s Homecoming Cheer and Dance Competition, sported jorts (jean shorts), fanny packs, white crew socks and white sneakers—fulfilling our daddy-loving dreams!

The video that was originally posted on Facebook, has since gone viral—I mean, with those tight jean shorts, who could turn away?

But this young brotherhood isn’t all about working those shorts and fannies--the frat is currently raising funds for the Special Olympics via a GoFundMe page.

Way to go, boys! Keep twerking for the internets!

Gay Coffee Shop Owner From Viral Video Of Fight With Hateful Customers Shares His Perspective

Last week, a video went viral of a coffee shop owner throwing out an offensive Christian group handing out anti-abortion propaganda.

The video went all over the internet and sites like Instinct covered the situation.

Now, the man himself, Ben Borgman, is sharing his thoughts on the situation.

Borgman spoke with the Huffington Post about the incident and about his perspective on Christianity.

“I know Christians, and they don’t confront people in the street, or in a place of business,” he said. “They certainly don’t print out a bunch of hate messages and fold them up like pretty butterflies and leave them in parks for kids to find. There’s the crime in this story ― what did that cost Seattle to clean up, I wonder?”

Borgman also took the time to fight against the idea that he was discriminating against the customers because they were Christians

“We have religious organizations that meet here regularly,” he said. “These people were not thrown out for being Christian. I’ve been so clear about that.  This removal was very focused on this group, or any group like them.”

He continued, “They were put out because they print ugly crap and hand it out in my town, period. I would have thrown out a group that tried to print ugly crap about Christians, too. Trying to stir up hate and discontent is not how to fix things.” 

And it seems Borgman is not gong to apologize for what he did.

“Nothing gets erased by apologies, just words. My words are out there, on video... I have to stand by them, they’re mine,” he told HuffPost. “[I hope that people] take away that we don’t hate Christians, we don’t even hate anti-abortionists. It’s these groups that picket funerals, and blow up clinics, and paint swastikas. These are the groups who can’t meet here.”

Watch: The Creators of "In a Heartbeat" React to Elders Watching "In a Heartbeat"

We should support LGBTQ content and media by supporting and celebrating the people who make them.

And that’s just what Youtube Channel the Fine Brothers decided to do. They’ve already recorded a video of Elders reacting to the short film animation “In a Heartbeat,” and are working on a kids react this very moment, but they also decided to celebrate the creators by inviting them to the studio.

That’s right, you can watch the video of “In a Heartbeat’s” creators Beth David and Estaban Bravo reacting to the Elders as they watched the video for the first time.

Check out the video below:

 

But who are Beth David and Estaban Bravo? Well, just a year and a half ago, the two were simply animation students at the Ringling School of Art and Design in Florida.

At that time, they were working on a joint college thesis project. At first, they weren’t crazy over the idea and didn’t know how to approach it, but that soon changed.

“The original pitch was a story between a boy and a girl,” David told NBC News. “But it wasn’t until we made it about a same-gender crush that the idea really started to take form and resonate with Esteban and I. We realized that we had something that could potentially be really special to us.”

From there, the two decided to go further than fulfilling a class project and moved on to creating an actual short to release out into the world. In order to do that, they crowdfunded for the project and successfully raised more than $14,000 on Kickstarter back in December.

From there, it’s been hard work for the both of them to make the project come alive and they did that while continuing their lives. The two graduated from college and began working their way into the animation field, but with viral hit “In a Heartbeat” under their belts, they’ve got a leg up on the competition.

Plus, they have promised each other to not only continue working with together for future projects, but to leave the possibility open of making “In a Heartbeat” a larger story.

We look forward to seeing their dreams become a reality and we at Instinct will continue to support and celebrate them every step of the way.

Watch: Dublin Drag Queen Knocks Out Guy Who Snatched Her Wig

Who knew a viral video of a drag queen could cause so much suspicion?

What happened was that a video of Dublin drag queen Heirless Blackstone surfaced. In it, Blackstone’s supposedly promoting some event when some random man comes up and snatches her wig away.

This then causes Blackstone to react by punching the man in the face before the video cuts out.

 

 

That’s when things get a little weird. Blackstone almost doesn’t address the video at all. In fact, only one tweet goes out about it. Other than that, nothing.

 

 

 

Then, apparently two news sites wrote about the issue before both articles were mysteriously taken down.

Some are calling the entire situation a hoax and an attempt to stir up some publicity for Heirless Blackstone. However, as Queerty pointed out, not addressing the video doesn’t exactly do a good job of publicizing it. (That said, we’re both posting about it so maybe it did).

If it was in fact all fake, does that take away the fact that this is a video that’s going viral? Does a calculated hit make it any less of a hit?

I ask because when we throw around the word “fake” we’re saying that the attempt at attention is cheap and not worth our time.

Yet, several celebrities do things in order to get our attention. They plan out ways to get the public’s focus and most of the time we throw our attention and money at it.

For instance, the video for Kanye’s “Famous” was purely for attention. He shot a bunch of naked wax statues and then tweeted out that he wanted someone to sue him. Suddenly, hundreds of sites are writing about it, and people are clicking to read.

Also, Nicki Minaj had two engagements and later said both weren’t real.

Hell, even Beyoncé and Jay-Z both made songs and albums about their personal lives and made millions of dollars off of it. (But still no Grammy…)

Are these attempts only fake and not worth our time if we catch on to the fact that they’re just for our attention? (Though, no hate on Beyoncé and Jay-Z. Both are amazing artists and entertainers).

What do you all think? Do you think the video’s fake? And if it is, does it matter? Let us know down in the comments below.
