We realize there's only so much time one can spend in a day watching new trailers, viral video clips, and shaky cell phone footage of people arguing on live television. This is why every day The Atlantic Wire highlights the videos that truly earn your fiveminutes (or less). Today: what the pirated Iranian fishing boat looked like from a Navy helicopter, a profile of the most powerful goat in New Hampshire Republican politics, and a lady who looks uncannily like Angelina Jolie.
The Navy has released footage taken from one of the helicopter that participated in the improbable, U.S.-led rescue of 13 Iranian fisherman held hostage by Somali pirates. It's unclear if the people gathered at the bow are the pirates or the hostages, but it's a terrific (and startlingly clear) snippet of raw footage. [U.S. Navy]
Ricky Gervais is hosting the Golden Globes for the third time a week from Sunday. Thank you Hollywood Foreign Press Association! (Also: thank you to the Today show producer who had the good sense to include Gervais's joke about Bruce Willis being Ashton Kutcher's dad in the final cut of his interview with Matt Lauer. We never get tired of that one.) [NBC]
Here's a lady who looks exactly like Angelina Jolie. Trust us: we wouldn't tell you to look at someone looking like someone else unless they really, really look like them. And she does. [Thehypnoguy1]
Izak -- the goat that bit Jon Huntsman -- is apparently a well-known figure in the New Hampshire GOP. We haven't seen any video of him biting Huntsman (unfortunately), but it would fit with we've heard about his hard-headed, arch-conservative taste in candidates. [The Washington Post]
