Wake up in the morning feeling like Flossie Dickey. Grab my glasses and my mug it’s time to drink some whiskey. This has been “Tik Tok” to the tune of a 110-year-old clock. Hey everyone! It’s a dreary and very sleepy Sunday evening here at Stony Brook, so we’re starting off this week’s top trending YouTube videos with a woman who feels this way pretty much every day of the week. She likes naps, she likes whiskey and she’s not amused. At 80 years our senior, give it up for millennial mascot Flossie Dickey.
In her 110 years, she has seen 19 presidents lead this nation. Who will trump the White House next? The Donald? The Republican candidate won the South Carolina primary on Saturday, Feb. 20. In his victory speech, Trump gave a pat on the back to his competition with, “I just want to congratulate the other candidates. There’s nothing easy about running for president, I can tell you. It’s tough. It’s nasty. It’s mean. It’s vicious…” It’s Donald Trump.
Shortly after the South Carolina primary, Jeb Bush announced the suspension of his candidacy. We guess he just couldn’t handle the work, work, work, work, work. But you know who can? Rihanna. The Barbadian singer released a teaser for her new “Work” music video on Feb. 19 and already has over six million views. We just wish it was longer than 30 seconds.
While you don’t get to see Rihanna work it, you can see Jennifer Lopez twerk to the hot single on The Tonight Show. Sara, a.k.a Jimmy Fallon, was saying anything but Ew! to the Latina’s sizzling performance.
With that said, check out YouTube’s top trending videos:
1. Happy Birthday, Flossie.
2. “South Carolina, we will never forget you. We will never forget you. We will never ever forget you, South Carolina.”

3. “I firmly believe the American people must entrust this office to someone who understands that whoever holds it is a servant not the master.”
4. “Work, work, work, work, work…” somethin’, somethin’, somethin’
