Viral Video Nostradamus – Flash Mob, Baseball Prodigy and Dancing Kids

Viral Nostradamus is our companion piece to the weekly Viral Round Up articles, and takes a look at the opposite end of the viral life cycle.  The goal is to try and discover new videos that have viral potential, and predict their ability to skyrocket in views.  This week, we have three new videos with low view counts, each of which I think stands a very good chance of going viral.
