(KFVS) -

The Internet is buzzing this Tuesday morning with some hot topics and here's a look at a couple of things you'll want to know about.

Metropolis is reporting that an alleged abduction in a section of New York City was all part of a joke.

The abduction gave area residents in Washington Heights a scare and resulted in a big response from local police.

But as it turns out, what seemed like a dangerous situation, actually was a prank pulled by a group of people to celebrate a birthday.

Several witnesses had reported what they thought was a man being abducted, but a couple of the friends in on the prank later called police to clear up the confusion.

No charges are expected to be filed.

A YouTube video has been grabbing lots of attention since it first took to the web last Friday.

The clip, entitled 'Kung Fu Grandpa' is footage of a man practicing his nunchucks next to a truck in a grocery store parking lot.

What's even funnier than that? The commentary provided by the man who captured the video.

Check out the video that's gotten over 5 million hits below.
