This week in Crave: The quadrillion dollar edition

This week, we joined a "Gangnam Style" flash mob, repelled water with our bodies, and voted for a video game hero for president.

Too busy being grateful your last phone bill didn't tally to $15 quadrillion to keep up with Crave this week? We've got lots more reasons for you to be grateful right here.
