This week, a news anchor caught Taylor Swift fever in the middle of a broadcast while his co-worker looked on, unamused. Ellen DeGeneres pranked Daniel Radcliffe by staging an earthquake in the middle of his interview, and Jimmy Kimmel resurrected his cruel annual joke of telling kids their parents had eaten all their Halloween candy. Also, a new trailer for Into the Woods was released — with singing! Oh, and Bette Midler established a Kickstarter to plant a tree on the moon. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
