Leann Rimes: she's just like us! When it came time for Rimes to film her latest music video, she turned to the same device the rest of us do when we take video of ourselves singing in the mirror (what? you don't do that?).

The iPhone!

Rimes's new music video for her single "Gasoline and Matches" was filmed in six-second intervals on Vine using a slew of iPhones, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The clips were then stitched together to make the whole video. Talk about low budget!

The change in posture reportedly helps prevent colon disease and the toilet can, in addition, screen your... you know... for signs of illness, according to a writeup in Fast Company. Happy ... you know!
