Gotta Watch: Poo you'll pay for

If you're easily grossed out or squeamish by the mere mention of words like poop, poo or dung, you've officially been warned.  Today's Gotta Watch is all about that and it's inspired by a Chinese businessman whose livelihood thrives on crap.  The thought of willingly consuming this excrement probably hasn't crossed your mind a whole lot, but there are people who choose to offer up quite a bit of money for it.  Would you pay to consume something made with poop? Sound off below.

Gotta Watch: Huntsman's presidential campaign
Republican presidential candidate and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman campaigns at Keene State College on January 08, 2012

Gotta Watch: Huntsman's presidential campaign

On June 21, 2011, former Utah Governor and U.S.ambassador to China Jon Hunstman announced his candidacy for president. He began his campaign in Liberty State Park, the same place where Ronald Reagan announced his bid for president in 1980. Over the past several months, the moderate conservative traveled across the country to tout his tax plan and foreign policy views. However, his campaign never really got the momentum he needed.  Huntsman finished last in the Iowa caucus and third in the New Hampshire primary. Despite the endorsement by South Carolina's largest newspaper, Huntsman decided it was time to end his campaign and back one of his rivals. Today's Gotta Watch features a look back at Huntsman's campaign, his feisty exchanges with Mitt Romney and the end of his bid for the White House.

Bad-mouthing Mitt – During his campaign, Huntsman attacked Romney on everything from tax policy to health care to his views on China.

A message for Mitt – During his campaign, Huntsman sent a message to Romney, the winner of the Iowa caucuses. "Welcome to New Hampshire. Nobody cares." That, and a nod to the Grateful Dead, were some of the more memorable highlights from his run for the GOP nomination.

To quit and endorse Mitt -  In the end, Huntsman decided he shouldn't continue on, and suspended his campaign. And, despite their "differences," Huntsman gave Romney his endorsement.

Gotta Watch: Kids 1, Politicians 0

Politicians need to be prepared for pretty much anything. Between the tabloids and reporters – every bit of what they say is scrutinized.   There are always going to be moments when politicians get caught off guard by the people they expect the least. You've gotta watch what happens when kids stump politicians on the tough questions starting with an incident between Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann and a teenager.

Teen vs. presidential candidate - Bachmann is questioned by a high school student about her stance on same-sex marriage at a town hall meeting in Iowa. Watch the testy exchange as she just won't let up. See the full video from iReporter Anelia Dimitrova here.

Video Vault: Magic Johnson's stunning HIV news

It's a day that shocked the sports world and changed the course of NBA history.  Nov. 7, 1991, 20 years ago today, NBA superstar Earvin "Magic" Johnson told the world that he contracted the HIV virus and was retiring from basketball.  At the time, Magic's announcement seemed like a death sentence, especially because people had so many misconceptions about HIV and AIDS.  In the years following his diagnosis, Johnson has become the face of HIV and an advocate for safe sex.   Today we look back at the day that changed Magic Johnson's career and the way the world viewed HIV.

Gotta Watch: Wedding disasters

There is no doubt that planning a wedding takes a lot of time and effort.  You've got to make your guest list, hire a caterer, get flowers and decorations, order the cake, the list just goes on and on.  That said, a lot can definitely go wrong at a wedding, and sometimes you can't do a darn thing about it.  How about getting married in a dust storm for instance? Today's gotta watch is all about wedding disasters, and the video topping our favorites list involves a bride, a groom and an unwelcome guest named "Haboob."

Really dirty wedding crasher – A couple in Arizona got more than they bargained for when they tried to say their "I Dos." You've really gotta watch what happened when a major dust storm rolled in during the middle of the ceremony.

A political debate isn't a good one without a few awkward and fiery moments.

Rick Perry.

Gloves come off – It's a really awkward exchange that includes a lot of yelling, bickering and even a condescending pat on the shoulder. Watch what ensues after Gov. Rick Perry accuses Mitt Romney of hiring illegal immigrants.

Animals can be pets, but sometimes it's hard to remember that animals are, well, animals.  Take this video of a turkey for instance.  It may look  sweet and harmless, until it starts chasing a TV producer, leaving her screaming for help.  In the spirit of this hilarious video of a wild turkey, we at Gotta Watch put together a few of our favorite videos featuring animals chasing people.  Check out what happens when animals attack.

Turkey's fowl play –  This is possibly one of the funniest videos between a television news producer and a turkey.  You've gotta watch how this seemingly docile turkey chases her....and how it all ends.

Gotta Watch: Waiting is the hardest part

It's a long-standing tradition that championship-winning sports teams get invited to the White House.  The Super Bowl 20-winning Chicago Bears are no exception.  In 1986, the Bears were scheduled to meet President Ronald Reagan at the White House to celebrate their big victory. However, just days after the championship, space shuttle Challenger blew up and their trip got cancelled.  Today, 25 years after their scheduled visit, that Chicago Bears team is finally going to the White House. In honor of this long-awaited and well-deserved honor, we at Gotta Watch put together some videos of people who had to wait a long time to get something.  While waiting may be the hardest part, some rewards are worth waiting for.

A piece of her late father - It's not often that people leave messages for their loved ones in a bottle and toss it in the sea.  It's even less often that a person receives that message five decades later.  Check out the story of a New Hampshire woman who, through a strange turn of events, is reunited with a note from her late father.

Gotta Watch: Fight fight fight!

Sometimes after a long work week, there's just nothing better than kicking back, relaxing and watching some downright dirty fight videos.  The problem is, there are so many of these videos, it's hard to pick which ones are the best.  Here are just a few brawl videos you've gotta watch...starting with one that was newly released of some Florida high school football players throwing some serious punches at the end of a game.

Post-game punches – You'd think they would have got their aggression out during the game, but two high school football teams in Florida felt otherwise.  Check out the video that got a number of students suspended from the teams.

Gotta Watch: Moving through time

It's an artistic technique that allows you to fast-forward through time and it's absolutely fascinating to watch.  We're talking about time-lapse photography. This simple art of taking images every second over an extended period of time and then replaying the images in normal speed creates a feeling of moving through time.  Today's Gotta Watch features some of our favorite time-lapse videos, inspired by a video we posted Tuesday that shows an incredible view of the Northern Lights in Denmark. In case you missed it, the video is at the end of this post.

Around the earth in 1 minute - Take a trip around planet Earth thanks to time-lapse video of 600 stitched-together photos from NASA's astronaut photo database. It's certainly a view that puts maps to shame.

Gotta Watch: They quit! (A Labor Day special)

It's Labor Day, a day that honors all the contributions workers make to the well-being of the United States.  For many of you, Labor Day is a work-free holiday.  So, while you're out enjoying your barbecues and last days of Summer, we thought we would bring back some videos that highlight some less than exemplary members of the workforce.  

Curse-and-slide technique – It's almost impossible to forget the infamous JetBlue flight attendant who gained notoriety in 2010 for his ability to quit in truly spectacular fashion.  Forget giving two-week notice. This guy cursed out a customer, grabbed a beer and slid down the emergency chute.

Gotta Watch: Story behind Little Rock 9

In 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court declared all laws establishing segrated schools unconstitutional. That meant African-American students could legally attend all-white schools. By 1957, the NAACP registered a group of nine black students to attend Little Rock Central High School in Arkansas.  The school board agreed to comply with the 1954 ruling and approved a plan for gradual integration that would start that school year. 

On September 4, that group of students, later nicknamed the "Little Rock 9," attempted to enter Central High on the first day of school, but a crowd of angry students and hundreds of National Guardsmen blocked them from entering. The incident grabbed national attention - and the attention of President Eisenhower. As a result, the nine students attended the school under federal protection, opening the door for black students across the country. In today's Gotta Watch, we're featuring highlights from that historic day and reaction from the Little Rock 9 as they look back on their experiences three decades later.

A day that changed history – Take a look at this historical footage from the very day the so-called Little Rock 9 were blocked from entering their school.
