Monday Morning Grindhouse - Weekend Viral Video Clips To Start Your Week

Monday Morning Grindhouse   Weekend Viral Video Clips To Start Your Week

I know how tough it can be to get going on a Monday morning. You've spent all weekend relaxing, running errands, doing yard work, watching basketball, and just generally doing whatever you darn well pleased. But come Monday morning, it's back to the grind. The transition can take a lot of time, particularly for people that need the aid of coffee to help wake up. If you're struggling to slip back into a work-week state of mind, allow me to extend your weekend by a few extra minutes by showing you the top viral clips from the weekend.

As often as possible, I try to take advantage of my weekends. I'm horrible with home improvement projects, but I still attempt them anyway. I enjoy golf and other outdoor activities. I like seeing a movie or catching a sporting event. But this weekend, due to an unexpected illness, I was fairly well confined to the house. Needless to say, I spent more time than usual watching online video this weekend.

And you know what I found out? There are great viral clips on the weekend, just as there are on the weekdays. I know... I was surprised too.

In an effort to feel a bit more productive and make some use out of my weekend spent on YouTube, I thought I'd share the best viral videos I saw this weekend. These are the clips your friends and coworkers will be forwarding to you in the early part of this week:

Movie Trailers

Movie trailers are always solid performers in the world of viral video, even when the movie being teased is completely fake. Such is the case with Angry Birds: The Movie, which was uploaded yesterday and already stands at half a million views:

Pure Talent

On Friday, a pair of videos featuring exceptionally talented individuals--completely unrelated to one another--hit YouTube and each spent the weekend racking up views. Of course, sometimes you can go viral with the exact opposite of talent, as proved by this poor ballet dancer:

The Nashville Predators hockey team (my hometown team) showed off their own "talent"--the ability to kick pucks in the opponent's net:

Now Get To Work

I hope you enjoyed the videos. They represent the best of the emerging viral clips likely to dominate this week's discussions. Now, however, if you want to keep your job, it's probably time to put down the coffee and get to it. Don't worry, there will be more viral videos to watch tomorrow.
