Top Viral Videos

November 22, 2010

Everybody loves viral videos! YouTube has become one of the most popular sites on the web and it is full of them. There are millions of  hilarious “home-videos” – some real and some created with the intention of secretly advertising whilst entertaining.

A viral video is a video that becomes popular through Internet sharing. Viral videos date back as far as 1995. Remember videos like the “Dancing Baby” and “Peanut butter Jelly time”? Both of these are early examples of the viral craze!

Viral advertising is being used more and more to promote brands in a “real” and “raw” style, companies such as Quicksilver, Nike, Pepsi and Rayban have all caught the viral bug and brought their own productions to sites such as YouTube and Vimeo.
