Define a ‘good viral’. I think a ‘good viral’ is something that is successful online no matter how good or bad you think it is. It could be original or it could be a piss take on something. Some really good virals that stand out for me are Nyan Cat and Chocolate Rain.
Nyan Cat is a hugely successful online video on YouTube with millions of views. It is a cat flying in the air with a rainbow behind it and has a song playing in the background with the word ‘nyan’ being said over again and again. There is even a video with over ten hours of a loop which has over twenty one and a half million views. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZZ7oFKsKzY
Chocolate Rain is another hugely successful online video on YouTube with millions of views. It is an original song by Tay Zonday who sings into a microphone. It has over eighty eight and a half million views.
YouTube is the perfect source to upload your own videos. A lot of videos on YouTube don’t intend on being virals and just want to upload a video. By next week, they could be an internet hit. How amazing is that? Virals can make you become famous within a matter of days. YouTube is a very powerful tool which has lets users around the world upload their own created content.
You may wonder, how do internet virals become successful? They spread through word of mouth, YouTube and through social media. These have helped them gain recognition around the world and gain an online fan base.
