It’s viral video prediction time so join us as we take a look at the 5 contenders for the coming week. Pop princess Kylie Minogue has a new single out and the accompanying video is attracting a lot of attention because of its suggestive content, plus the new Spider-Man trailer is picking up a lot of traction.
Videos can go viral within hours (see First Kiss or Evian Babies) so join us as we give you our predictions for the videos we think will be the most shared over the next 7 days. These include that sassy 3 year-old arguing with his own mother and the rules of F1 explained. Let us know your predictions too!
A sprinkling of Super Bowls ads made the chart of the most shared Global Video Ads of January 2014, but it was a psychotic baby terrorizing New Yorkers that attracted the most shares across Facebook and Twitter. Poop and Evian still remain surprisingly popular too.
Christmas themes dominated the Top 20 most shared video ads for December 2013, of course, but YouTube Rewind 2013, Jean-Claude Van Damme’s splits and those everlasting Evian Babies also made an appearance.
Van Damme and his splits, Jingly Boxer Shorts and a Christmassy Bear and a Hare all won a place at the top of the 20 most shared, branded video ads during November 2013. Amazingly, GEICO’s ‘Hump Day’ is still holding strong after nearly 7 months in the charts.
Unruly’s Global Online Video Ad Chart for September 2013 features those dancing Mercedes chickens, Chipotle’s disillusioned Scarecrow, A girl who never, ever poops, LG’s meteors and a poignant reminder of 9/11. Let’s see who else made the list.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen a video go super viral, Psy style, but ‘The Fox’ by Norwegian band/comedy duo Ylvis seems to be heading in that direction. It’s had 8.8 million views in just a week with over 1.3 million social shares so far.
The Top 20 shared branded campaigns of July, according to Unruly. In the mix: that Geico camel continues to be shared at an incredible pace, cats try to be more like dogs, a nifty video from Honda featuring hands, and Grand Theft Auto V.
Unruly’s Viral Video Chart for June includes the Geico camel commercial, some awesome stunts brought to us by Red Bull, and a surprising resurrection of a safety video that was released in November. Who else made the list?
Our friends at Unruly are opening up a Social Video Lab in New York City, much like the one they opened in London last year. Lucky guy Greg Jarboe got to take a look at it last week, and now he’s going to share with us what he saw there.
