Jennifer aniston goes viral – smartwater
Earlier this week we wrote about Jennifer Aniston’s new Smarwater campaign and asked, will it stick? The answer is a resounding “yes!” The campaign pulled every viral trick in the book, including Kennan Cahill, puppies, talking parrots, the Double Rainbow guy and a kick to the nuts. Personally, I thought it was a little bit on the long side, but it looks like the world didn’t care. The video has amassed a whopping 6 million views in under a week! What did you think about the Smartwater viral video?
BVB viral | Nuri Sahin and Roman Weidenfeller
German soccer players Nuri Sahin and Roman Weidenfeller star in this amazing viral video that’s gotten over 825,000 views since its upload on March 2. I don’t want to give too much away, so all I’ll say is that they pull an awesome trick while on the road and this is definitely worth watching.
Ray William Johnson’s alter ego, Your Favorite Martian, is back with another hit song, breaking 1.4 million views in three days. ‘Club Villain’ is an awesome song and animation about the club where all the villains hang out, from the Wicked Witch of the West to Side Show Bob.
BORN THIS WAY – Lady Gaga performs with Maria Aragon
Remember Maria, the amazing 10-year old who received 21.6 million views for her cover of Lady Gaga’s new song ‘Born This Way’? She had the chance to perform onstage with Gaga herself at her show in Toronto earlier this month. Yet another example of YouTube making dreams come true!
Songify This: Winning – a Song by Charlie Sheen
And finally, you knew we couldn’t get through the week without sharing another Charlie Sheen video. The Gregory Brothers, aka Schmoyoho, finally uploaded a Charlie Sheen remix this week and it’s been viewed over 5.6 million times so far!
