The world was watching when the Washington Nationals won the World Series championship against the Houston Astros last Wednesday.

 The U.S. Marine Corp band was present, and welcomed the team with their own version of the song, “Baby Shark,” which became Gerardo Parra’s walk-on song. It seemed to become the theme song of the Nats as they entered the World Series – often times you’d see them clapping their arms together like a shark clenching it’s jaw.

Melania Trump made an appearance in an Aflac commercial in 2005! The commercial was called “The Experiment” because a mad-scientist was trying to swap the voice of Melania’s character for the quack of the Aflac duck. Watch the video below!

Let’s flashback to 2005 with the first lady – the same year her Aflac commercial aired.
