1. Felix’s Supersonic Freefall Mission Highlights
After a postponed attempt earlier last week, Felix Baumgartner finally made his historic and multiple record breaking freefall jump from the stratosphere. This highlight reel shows the mission from start to finish with every aspect shown from mission control, taking the leap to double fist-pump after the successful landing (yeah buddy). Red Bull being the sponsor it was made into a worldwide media marketing campaign and even inspired Lego builders to remake the jump, with “only” 6,9 million views. After 5 days Felix’s Supersonic Freefall video reached more then 20 million views, not a record just yet in itself, but a very good start!
2. Pocket Like It’s Hot – Snoop, DeStorm & Andy
Not all celebrities can make videos go viral, but there are some like Kate Upton and Snoop Dogg that seem to make them go up with thousands and million views all the time. This time Snoop shows up in a video to promote Hot Pockets brand and the video went hit over 3 million views in 8 day. Still want more Hot Pockets? Go ahead!
3. GoPro HERO3: Black Edition
The GoPro HERO3 is a new GoPro camera, twice as powerful as the last edition and allows you to capture and broadcast your most exciting moments as a professional. To celebrate this launch, the GoPro team traveled around the world with athletes, adventurers, and filmmakers to see what they could capture and create with the GoPro HERO3. And here’s the result – the video has almost 3 million views in 2 days, get inspired! And for more inspiration what can you do with it have a look on GoPro channel at YouTube.
4. Will It Blend? – iPhone 5 vs Galaxy S3
We haven’t heard of Blendtec for a while, the last time there made it to Viral Friday was in March 2011 with Will It Blend? -iPad 2. Usually they blend only one thing, but as now it’s time for Tom to get a new phone and he just can’t decide. So which one should he get? The new iPhone 5, or the Samsung Galaxy S3? You know how he will decide. Which blends best! The video is online since October 16th and has already more than 2,160,000 views, that’s a way to blend!
5. The Real Bears
Meet the Real Bears as for sure everyone knows the happy polar bears in soda ads. Many like their daily dosage of canned sugar, but everything should have has its limitations. The Center for Science in the Public Interest came up with the campaign “The Real Bears” to decrease soda consumption and to promote healthier, safer diets. Want to know more? Have a look at the Soda Facts 101 and take it easy with the sugary drinks. The Real Bears video is in the wild from 9th of October with more than 1,5 million views.
