Happy Friday! It’s no surprise that this week most of the videos circulating the web have been related to the Super Bowl, from the highest-rated commercials to the halftime show, so this week our viral video roundup is mostly Super Bowl. We’ve got the adorable VW kiddy Darth Vader, an awesome VW Beetle YouTube tear up, a double-dose of Eminem and more. Check them all out below and be sure to let us know what your favorite viral video of the week was in the comments.
Volkswagen Commercial: The Force
This is officially the first time that a video has appeared in our weekly roundup two weeks in a row. VW originally released their Super Bowl commercials online the week before the Super Bowl. Last Friday their kiddy Darth Vader commercial, ‘The Force’, already had 4.5 million views. Now it’s up to nearly 27 million and it seems to have secured its spot as the favorite Super Bowl commercial of 2011.
The day after the Super Bowl on Today, kiddy Darth Vader was unmasked. His name is Max Page, he’s 6-years old and he is officially the cutest Darth Vader that ever lived.
Chrysler Eminem Super Bowl Commercial
Chrysler’s ‘Imported From Detroit’ Super Bowl commercial, featuring Eminem, was the second most-viewed Super Bowl commercial on YouTube this week, with just over 5 million views. This was perhaps one of the most epic Super Bowl commercials this year. What did you think of it?
Volkswagen Black Beetle YouTube Tear Up
If you liked the Volkswagen Black Beetle commercial before then you’ll love the new YouTube tear up campaign. The Black Beetle totally wrecks the YouTube interface with dirt bugs and plants flying everywhere. Click here or on the image below to experience the awesome breakout campaign for yourself.
Brisk Eminem Super Bowl Commercial 2011
This Brisk Super Bowl commercial also topped the charts on YouTube this week, proving that using Eminem in your commercials is a great way to go viral. But if this video is accurate it looks like Eminem isn’t the easiest guy to work with!
2011 Super Bowl XLV Halftime Show
The Black Eyed Peas’ halftime performance was also one of the most-viewed videos this week, but if the comments have anything to say about it people are watching because of how bad it was. Do you think the half-time show was as much of an epic fail as Will.i.am’s failed attempt to Tweet during the act?
Christina Aguilera Super Bowl 2011 National Anthem Mistake
People were all in a tizzy this week over Christina Aguilera’s National Anthem snafu. As a result of her lyrical whoops-a-daisy (at the twilight’s last…reaming?) over 2.2 million people watched this video this week.
Thanks to Christina Aguilera, this funny Maya Rudolph SNL clip also went viral this week.
Non-Super Bowl Bonus: Kids React To Viral Videos #5
Those of you who have had enough of the Super Bowl for one year can feast their eyes on the latest episode of The Fine Brothers’ ‘Kids React To Viral Videos’. This time the kids are watching and reacting to Golden-Voiced Ted Williams, Charlie Bit My Finger and Double Dream Hands. If you’ve seen the series before you’ll notice some new kids this time around…including twins!
