Girl's Amazing Animal Noises Go Viral (VIDEO)

One of the greatest parts about YouTube is how it nurtures our ridiculous hidden talents. Mel, the girl in the video below, knows this firsthand, as this video of her doing animal impressions has gotten about 200,000 views pretty much overnight.

In it, she does a series of impressive animal noises in rapid succession. She explains on her YouTube page:

"I was studying abroad in NZ when my friends found out that i can do animal noises. So, they had me do them in front of a video camera. They suggested that I make a YouTube account and post it."

And what great advice that was. Watch the video below and leave your thoughts in the comments.
