Friday is finally here, and I’m excited to say that this week we have some super-duper videos to share with you. All week, as I discovered these clips, I was laughing, smiling and cocking my head in amazement that some of these things actually happened and were caught on tape. So get ready to ROFL, grin from ear to ear, and get ready for the weekend with some of this week’s best viral videos!
Goat yelling like a man
The title of this video gives a pretty clear explanation of what the clip is. What you see is what you get – a goat yelling like a man. This video was uploaded almost two years ago, but it finally took off yesterday when it was featured on YouTube’s home page. I can’t wait for the remixes to start rolling in!
Baby eating Watermelon
A few Thanksgivings ago, a friend of mine took a picture of his baby on a platter in the oven, doing his best baby turkey impression. I thought that was the funniest food-related baby thing ever, until I saw this video of a baby eating watermelon yesterday. Apparently I’m not the only one who thinks this video is adorable, with over 1.1 million views so far.
Pug sings Batman theme
Here’s a great example of a remix that has gotten even more views than the original. Last week, a video of a pug that says “Batman” showed up on YouTube. A remix was made, starring Batman Pug singing along to the Batman theme song, and has gotten more than 1.5 million views in a little over a week. Holy viral, Batman!
Guy Walks Across America
A guy named Mike, walks across America, from the Brooklyn Bridge in New York to the Golden Gate Bridge in this awesome stop motion video. Okay, so maybe Mike didn’t actually walk on foot across the entire United States, but this video is pretty darn cool just the same. It has garnered a whopping 1.4 million views in just over a week. How are your feet, Mike?
Axe Rise Up: Stay Alert!
Old Spice has been getting all the attention lately, so I thought I’d give Axe a little bit of Kudos where it is due. This ad hasn’t gone viral just yet, with only 64,700 views since it’s upload at the beginning of June. However, the clip saw a huge jump in traffic yesterday and I’m just waiting for people to take notice because it really is a very cool ad. Check it out, and be sure to watch until the end. It’s worth it.
BONUS: Worst Viral Video Of The Week: Who is Ted from Accounting?
If you haven’t heard the news yet, this week Cisco tried their hardest to replicate the success of the Old Spice response campaign and failed epically. We covered the campaign and why it was such a failure earlier this week, so you can read more about it here. The basic gist is that Cisco replaced The Man Your Man Could Smell like with Ted from Accounting. Meet Ted in the video below.
