This is week three of our Viral Prediction Chart where we try to guess what will go viral in the week ahead. We'll review any activity from the previous weeks and we've also chosen five new videos that we think are in with a chance. We're using Unruly Media’s viral video chart, which ranks the top videos in terms of shares globally as our statistical reference. We regard a video as 'viral' if it at the point of prediction has less than 250,000 total shares and receives a total of 1 million shares or more in 7 days as at Monday 12.00 noon GMT/BST each week.
We'll be adding to the prediction chart the 5 videos we think will go viral in the next 7 days, and to get your prediction added to the chart, simply add a comment below and we'll track those in the chart the following Monday and let you know if it makes it according to our criteria.
Results for Predictions on March 24th 2014:
Of the five videos we chose last week , it's Kylie that's still putting on the shares. Not quite making it to a full blown viral but she's now at 222,892 shares so far and 3.6M views on YouTube.
She gets a boost from her current Saturday nite TV appearance on The Voice UK.
Viral Video Predictions for the Coming Week:
#1 Shakira - Empire: (Current shares: 235,449)
Top of this week's list because she has the global fans to take it to the max.
#2 Durex #TurnOffToTurnOn - OFFICIAL: (Current shares 131,296)
Durex research must have discovered that they're facing stiff competition from mobile devices.
#3 Do It For Denmark!: (Current views: 79,737)
Hilarious travel company promo with sub-titles.
#4 Ted Cruz: Stand for Principle! (Current shares:38.858)
Because it's about as far right as you can go and there are at least a million people who will agree with him or can't believe what he's advocating.
#5 Rooftop Showdown - Sherlock Series 2 - BBC: (Current shares 21,737)
BBC Worldwide just released this trailer for Sherlock Series 2 and it has the potential to go through the roof.
