>>> this morning on "today's" weekly rewind, we're looking back at some of the week's most clicked on, talked about and hilarious web findings. jenna is here with some stories you may have missed.
>> some for very good reasons. of these super serious stories out there, we're going to veer way off course for a few minutes to chat all things interesting. first up, the word gift. do you know it? it should. it's oxford dictionary 's word of the year. gif is an acronym for a compressed file. like this one of us. this is a gif. whatever you were doing, it's a gif.
>> is it gif?
>> no, that's peanut butter .
>> they come in chocolate flavors, too, by the way.
>> other words on the short list this year included yolo, as you only live once. nomo-phobia caused by being without one's mobile phone . left off the list this year was you are getting too old for these phones.
>> it's called obvious. i don't have my iphone. we've all been there before. one too many drinks and an escalator. am i right? you get where i'm going with this. this guy is like i'm drunk, but nobody can tell. i'm just going to walk down these steps here. i should be totally fine. he tries and he tries. but in the battle of man versus escalator, escalator wins. hilarious.
>> he is really not giving up. it's amazing.
>> he has to get downstairs. he doesn't understand the problem.
>> she finally gave up on him.
>> and that's the reason why you have to drink responsibly.
>> he's thinking when i drink, time stands still . that's because you're not going anywhere.
>> drink, fine, but take the real steps. and then couples who switch outfits and get photographed. why? not important. just go with it. it's called switcharoo. the man wears the wife's outfit.
>> i don't like where this is going to go.
>> i think we did a switcharoo on the today show. didn't we?
>> i knew i wouldn't like where this is going.
>> that is actually hilarious but awful at the same time.
>> does it make my hips look big?

>> i knew i didn't like where that was going.
>> you're quite a woman, lester.
>> yes, thank you very much.
>> what happens when you mix popcorn, caramel and red bull ? the end result is cracker jacked. it's a new snack heading to store shelves near you. it contains 70 my gra 0 milligrams of caffeine. also, it makes baseball games a heck of a lot more fun when you're cracker jacked.
>> absolutely not. that is so unacceptable. i'm sorry. and i'm liberal, you know that. i'll go for pretty much anything as long as it makes you happy that. is out.
>> you would think sugar is enough to jack you up. but they're adding more caffeine it to.
>> it's like a drug as far as i'm concerned. have you ever drank that stuff?
>> i did once. they scraped me off the ceiling about six hours later.
