Viral Video Chart: Jennifer Lopez, Snoop Dogg and Benedict Cumberbatch

Watch dogs playing on a beach set to Pharrell's Happy, Psy's latest Hangover cure, and J-Lo's Tight Pants with Jimmy Fallon

We start with some puppy love this week - an Australian dog walker rewards her charges with a romp on the beach and this clip featuring Pharrell Williams's Happy is a joy to behold. Watch out too for a sighting of two-and-a-half year old Didga, claimed to be the world's best known skateboarding cat.

Animals of a different nature feature in Penguins of Madagascar, a new film which sees the penguins recruited into a global spy business by Benedict Cumberbatch's debonair wolf, leader of an elite group of animal special agents. Their enemy, Octavius Brine, who is plotting to take over the world, is voiced by John Malkovich. Meanwhile, it's 20 years ago this week since Disney's The Lion King hit the screens and we've got a tongue-in-cheek look at the film from the Honest Trailers team.

Jimmy Fallon and Jennifer Lopez had Tonight Show viewers in stitches when they performed Tight Pants and there are more laughs from the new trailer for Dumber and Dumber To starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. John Oliver lays into the worst of the Brazil World Cup and there is a shocking film from Volkswagon about using your mobile phone while driving. Finally, what would you do if you and your wife were stranded overnight at Las Vegas airport? Why not make a video with your iPad and lip synch to Celine Dion singing Eric Carmen's 1975 power ballad All By Myself. Enjoy!
