Dwight Howard went all Gangnam Style with Ellen DeGeneres, NHL 13 has a marvelous glitch and we have another fabulous week of viral video to unwrap.
The song "Gangnam Style" continues to lurk around every Internet corner, and you can be sure it was found in heavy rotation this week.
We also have one video game glitch that still has us rolling, long after we saw it the first time. Welcome to another breakdown of the best moments of the week.
Sound off if you feel we neglected some worthy moments captured on video this week. We always love to see things that make us laugh, as well as those that really just creeped us out.
Here is the week in video.
Tampa Bay Rays Rookies Hazed
Big ups to David Price for forcing the rookies to put on some spectacular one-piece bathing suits and dance to "Call Me Maybe" while at Fenway.
The results are priceless.

High School Hi-Jinx
This is just your average, 2-point conversion play featuring Tumwater High School's QB Jayden Croft hitting Jamie Bryant in the end zone.
If you are looking for something unique, I guess you can consider the quarterback just flung the ball behind his back instead of a regular pass.

NHL 13's Hercules Check
According to this video, the best way to have any amount of fun right now is to buy NHL 13. After that, you check your opponent near the bench during a line change.
Now rinse and repeat for hours and hours of LOL-ing.

Golden State Gangnam
Here is the same exact parody of Gangnam Style you have seen a thousand times. The only difference here being it's performed by Golden State Warriors personnel.
Oh, and there is a hot blonde dancing in the BART in the middle of it all. I will let you locate her.

Flag Football Mastery
Here is a 30-yard toss from one chubby flag football maestro to another. The amazing part is that he just decided to throw the ball behind his back.
There is absolutely no reason for this decision other than it's awesome.

Dwight Howard Goes Gangnam
The Lakers newest star is making the rounds to make nice and show that he can still invoke some laughter.
He was on "Ellen" and got the party started immediately, dancing to the song pretty much everyone on the planet has heard by now.
Towards the end, you will hear his rendition of Kobe Bryant, which just sounds like some guy who really wants to get off the phone.

Replacement Refs Get NMA Treatment
If it's big news, ridiculous and in need of some mocking; you can count on the good people of NMA to re-tell and tale with hilarious animation.
They did just that with the horrible scourge on football that were the NFL replacement refs.

"It's Always Sunny" Gets Chael Sonnen
UFC dynamo Chael Sonnen has a new career as the new Dennis Reynolds on 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.'
Granted this is merely another brilliant marketing move by FX, but that hardly makes this video any less valuable.
Sonnen has comedic chops.
OK, this I don't mind as much.
Is this yet another Gangnam Style parody? Sure.
However, Wisconsin’s David Yang raps and remixes the original to create his own tribute, and that's what is missing from a great many other Gangnam gaffes.

Lastly, this week we say goodbye to a group of people who had us laughing and crying for the first few weeks of the NFL season.
Try not to get too choked up over these images and video moments featuring the replacement refs. Play us out Sarah McLachlan.
