As YouTube celebrates its seventh birthday, it is time to take a look back at some of its most memorable videos. From rap videos to memes, these viral videos have made their way into the hearts and minds of millions. Here are a few that are still making waves.
YouTube’s seventh year
YouTube has been home to thousands of viral videos for the last seven years. But one of its most popular videos may not even have been created in that time. Rather, it is the culture surrounding the viral video that makes it popular. Take, for example, the video of Andrew Meyer getting tased at a University of Florida event. Meyer had asked the speaker, John Kerry, if he was a member of a secret society called Skull and Bones. His question sparked a massive viral response, and his tasing prompted a public outcry. The video has become an instant meme, as well as an awareness of police brutality.
To be considered a viral video, a video must have at least one million views, and that can happen quickly. Unlike in the past, today’s viral videos can achieve five to eight million or even ten million views in a matter of days. This level of reach is almost impossible to achieve with traditional video content promotion. However, the process of creating a viral video is a challenging one.
While viral videos are gaining popularity across the globe, not all go viral. There are many factors that contribute to a viral video, including its content and the size of the audience. One of the biggest contributing factors is the number of subscribers the video has. With the growth of social media, it is important to have a large base of subscribers. A video with a high subscription count increases the chances of it going viral.
Videos can be a welcome distraction from the mundane world. YouTube’s popularity continues to increase, with new video creations popping up on the site each and every day. YouTube has become the birthplace of memorable moments that people can share with friends and family. One of the earliest viral videos was an “One Hit Wonder” that garnered 309 million views and 1.6 million engagements within a single month.

BuzzFeed and Purina teamed up to produce a viral video featuring a guy adopting a puppy. It depicts the bonding between the puppy and his new owner. Marketers dream of viral videos because they cut through the noise on the web and connect with people on a personal level. Viral videos have the added benefit of generating more recommendations and sales for brands.
A viral video can reach millions of views in a matter of days. According to Nelson-Field, a video can receive more than 100 million views and five million engagements in just a few weeks. Videos can go viral due to any number of factors, including content. Some viral videos are just plain silly, but they get a lot of attention.
One viral video has become the most popular in the past decade. The video was uploaded by the son of a musician named Howard Davies-Carr. The video was 27 minutes long, and it has more than three million views and a million engagements. This video combines humor and heartbreak and became one of YouTube’s most popular videos.
Its most popular meme
One of the most popular viral videos of all time is the Charlie Bit My Finger video, which has more than 800 million views. It has been one of the most watched videos on YouTube for years. You can check out the history of this video here. It’s a good way to get a taste of the power of viral videos.
The video has become a classic for several reasons. First of all, it is very disturbing. It tells a story of sugar abuse in a family. The video became a sensation on YouTube because it was sung by a young girl named Rebecca Black. The video was also uploaded by an Indian YouTube channel named “Billion Surprise Toys”. Its creators added references to the “Baby Shark” craze, “Gangnam Style” dance moves, and other elements.
Another video whose success can’t be denied is the Star Wars Kid video. This video has been viewed over a billion times. Another video with a similar theme is the “Dancing Baby” video. It is a 3D animation featuring a baby dressed in a diaper dancing to a song. It was a viral video, racking up over 50,000 views on DeviantArt. Its popularity spread to various websites, including Newgrounds, Offtopic, eBaum’s World, and many other sites.
Other great viral videos of all time are the “Baby Shark” and “Films in the Movies” videos. These videos have become iconic touch points for many people on YouTube, even being sampled by Skrillex and even starring in Taco Bell commercials. But they were not only famous viral videos, but they also helped the creators to achieve success.
Its most popular rap video
In April 2007, a Minnesota grad student named Tay Zonday uploaded an original creation to YouTube. The song is about institutional racism, but it quickly caught on because of Zonday’s peculiar voice and tendency to move away from the microphone. It has since gone viral and was referenced in several television shows, including 30 Rock and SpongeBob SquarePants.
