Five things more interesting to watch than the Drummond Puddle

The world is at a standstill watching the Drummond Puddle, but here at Cycling Weekly it's our public duty to give you something more interesting to watch

Productivity nationwide has almost ground to a halt thanks to a person live streaming people's reactions to encountering a massive puddle near Newcastle.

At the time of writing, over 19,000 people were watching the periscope video - apparently being recorded on a smartphone blu-tacked to a window. Water way to have a good time...

We watched it for a few minutes, hoping something interesting would happen. It didn't. So it got us thinking what we'd rather be watching.

Initially we thought of the standard 'paint drying', but then that wasn't related to cycling, so we thought we'd actually round up some brilliant videos for you to waste your time with.
