Guardian Viral Video Chart: James Bond and Hurricane Sandy

America experiences its own Skyfall as the huge storm blows in. Meanwhile, the Gangnam Style craze shows no signs of abating

James Bond's latest outing, Skyfall, smashed box office records when it opened in the UK last weekend, taking £20.1m – the biggest opening of the year so far and the largest gross after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 last year. It also smashed records for the biggest opening for a 2D film and the biggest ever Saturday attendance figure, according to Deadline. Blond Bond Daniel Craig plays 007's latest incarnation but we've got a treat for fans with a video which pits Bonds from the past against each other.

Maybe you can't get Adele's theme from Skyfall out of your head? There's another hit that no one seems to be able to escape from – and it's popularity shows no sign of abating. This week we've got MIT's treatment of Gangnam Style to entertain you. If you're a Lionel Richie fan and you think he's beyond all that – think again, as this clip from his performance at London's O2 shows.

For a few minutes of peace and tranquility, catch this timelapse video of planes landing at Heathrow Airport. The speed makes them look like birds wobbling into land and the music is mesmerising.

There were few places of calm or refuge this week as Hurricane Sandy hurtled into America's east coast. Amid all the tragedy and the disruption, the storm also brought out the best in many people – and a little light relief as clip number five shows.
