eHarmony Video Bio

Actress Cara Hartmann hit it big with her eHarmony Video Bio back in June, raking in nearly 16 million views this summer and inspiring a whole slew of hilarious parodies. This just may be the most memorable video-turned-meme from Summer 2011.

DC Shoes: Ken Block’s Gymkhana Four

The latest viral hit from DC Shoes—Ken Block’s Gymkhana Four—has garnered over 9 million views since it hit YouTube in mid-August.  Talk about some crazy driving skills!

Cat Gone (Hunchback Cat)

This crazy hunchback cat video is a short one but it has been viewed over 9 million times.  This is personally one of my favorite Summer YouTube hits.  I have watched it again and again and it never stops making me laugh.

Spider Cat

If you liked hunchback cat you’ll LOVE Spider Cat!

AI vs. AI. Two chatbots talking to each other

What happens if you set up two chatbots to talk to have a conversation?  Apparently the results are amazing!  This video has been viewed over 2.2 million times since the end of August.  “I am not a robot.  I am a unicorn.”

Party Rock Anthem – Kia Soul Hamster Commercial

This summer the Kia Soul hamsters made a comeback with a brand new viral ad and, as usual, they’re dancing their pants off!  The ad has been viewed over 4.2 million times to date.  Click here to find out more.

OK Go and The Muppets – Muppet Show Theme

OK Go and The Muppets have both proven themselves to be highly viral, so you can only imagine that when they got together this summer the results were explosive.  OK Go’s cover of The Muppet Show Theme has racked up over 3.2 million views so far.

Kenny Powers – K-Swiss CEO video (Uncensored) – NSFW Language

K-Swiss wins the award for the best branded viral video of the summer, in my humble opinion.  Their not-so-safe-for-work campaign stars Danny McBride as his Eastbound and Down character Kenny Powers as he becomes the “MFCEO” of K-Swiss and changes the sports world forever.

Madeon – Pop Culture

With over 4.7 million views, Madeon’s Pop Culture mashup was definitely the YouTube pop music mashup of the summer.

Ultimate Batting Practice

This video may be fake, but it’s awesome anyway.  2.6 million views don’t lie!

Mariachi Connecticut Serenades A Beluga Whale

Another one of my personal faves, this video of a mariachi band performing for a beluga whale has garnered nearly 2 million views since it went viral in mid-August.

I’m a Stupid Cat! – NSFW Language

YouTube viewers love cats, so it’s no surprise that this funny song about cats has been viewed over 5.4 million times this summer.  But if you’ve got something against “explicit lyrics” then you may want to pass on this one…

iPad Head Girl

Thinkmodo raked in over 1 million views with this awesome campaign for Cosmo For Guys.  It’s a girl with an iPad for a head that lets men truly see what women are thinking.

Best Prayer EVER! Pastor Joe Nelms – Nascar Nationwide

Pastor Joe Nelms gave one of the most unusual pre-race prayers of all time at the Nascar Nationwide series race in Nashville, TN, garnering over 2.5 million views.  Shortly after the video went viral the Gregory Brothers jumped on board to songify it!  Check out the original and songified version below.
