1. Flash Mob In The Copenhagen Metro
The classical music is not that popular nowadays. But Danish Radio Klassisk wanted to change this fact. For the promotion of their radio channel they came up with a flash-mob idea and surprising people with playing Griegs Peer Gynt in the Copenhagen metro and brought smiles to the people’s faces.
Other than that, hope that this flash-mob got the classic music some popularity boost since the video got viewed more than 1,500,000 times in a week. Watch and enjoy!
2. Sexy Jedi Bubblebath! Return of the Body Wash
It’s time for a break for the Jedi Order. Since the last remnants of the empire have been defeated, the defenders can enjoy peace in the galaxy. They found common ground and established a new business together and rededicated their lives to the art of grooming. A great parody of the AXE Body Spray commercials gained more than 680,000 views since the launch on May 4th (“May the Fourth be with you!” ) and a nice example that Star Wars is great topic for videos and when combined with “sex sells” – you know what I mean. Want more? Here’s the original SABER sexy lightsaber fight video.
3. How To Survive A Robot Uprising
A lot of people are more worried about zombie attacks, vampires or other sci-fi world endings / threats . Probably the other thing people should think about as a threat are robots. The people from Epipheo care about your survival and in this video a bestselling author, Daniel H. Wilson – author of the book “Robopocalypse” explains what people should do when Robopocalypse takes place. Almost every possible scene is explained. Since May 7th the video already has been viewed more than 295,000 times. It’s nice to know what to do when we’d be attacked by robots but what if the robots watch this video as well!? I think we’re screwed.
4. LEAKED: Instagram Makes A Camera
This funny viral is made by an American technology news and media network called
The Verge. They claim to have an exclusive and leaked info: Instagram is taking the 1 million dollars they got from Facebook to make a camera which can be used in real life. “Instagram Snap” helps you share your photos with people that aren’t on Instagram yet, you can use real world materials to personalize your pictures. The video is hilarious and you can tell that spoofs work really well for to make videos go viral: almost 200,000 views within a little bit more than a week.
5. Harvey And Rabbit
Thinkbox wanted to illustrate the power of traditional TV advertising and this video is actually “just” a TV commercial . Main actors: Harvey the dog and his favorite stuffed animal, the Rabbit. I wish to say “never underestimate the power of TV advertising” but I can’t lie. See how this TV ad worked out for Harvey and you can become his fan at its Facebook page, currently with 18,500 likes. The video has almost 140,000 views within 10 days, so it may be so that TV ads still work?
