This is wonderful! Great for prompting authentic English and for engaging students. Could even be used as a writing activity/prompt (but you'd have to zip ahead of the 2nd parts).

Teachers can download this video HERE.

Thanks - I wonder if this is a one off or a series? I love the one with the bike crash!

This is a very clever idea! Being a typical American of my generation, the soccer ones pretty much went over my head (I have no idea what happens next) but the rest were laugh-out-loud funny. It makes me want to make some of my own.

Awesome! *aside from an interminable laughter!
I wouldn't use some of them (violence alarm :P) but I will definitely STEAL the idea!

*we had "prediction" as a key -strategy in reading but using videos is more engaging :D

Thanks for sharing, Tommy !  I loved it . it's not only engaging and attention gripping but it has   comprehension made quite easy as images match language meaningfully that unknown words  don't hinder understanding. I used it as a mini-debate prompter and fun and expectations got participation to reach record levels!! Not to mention the high peak when students see the Messi clip. Form the land of Maradona  and Messi, thank you!
