1. “Surprise” – CoD: Black Ops 2 Trailer
We didn’t have a game trailer in Viral Friday for a while, but this one is really worth to watch. The new sequel of popular Call of Duty, first person shooter game, comes with a great video that was directed by Guy Ritchie and features Robert Downey Jr, FPS Russia, French movie star Omar Sy. The video has more than 23 million views since October 29th. Activision simply knows what works…
2. Dragon Baby
One of this week hottest videos is without a doubt Dragon baby which homages the movies Enter The Dragon and Kill Bill. The video skyrocketed and got 15 million views in just 7 days . The video was made by Patrick Boivin, who has a history in creating great videos that unintentionally got viral. His last video, Iron baby also got to 15 million views. Also wondering what will Patrick do next?
3. Steve Jobs’ Yacht Venus Unveiled
After more that a year after the visionary Steve Jobs passed-out, his family yacht ‘Venus’ was released into the wild from Dutch shipyard ‘De Vries‘ in Aalsmeer. Jobs, together with French designer Philippe Starck spent years working on the design and the result is just impressive. It might not be for everyone, or even every ship-lover, but it definitively stands outs. The design is far from standard and focuses on sharps lines, reflecting surfaces and new technology. More then 4,6 million views in just few days (and counting) makes also a big impression. For more information check out OMT’s photo’s and video’s.
4. Will Ferrell Will Do Anything
The tough fight for the White House is over, congratulations to Barack Obama. And it was one hell of a fight, offline but also online. There have been hundreds of videos calling people to vote, either for Romney or for Obama, but this one featuring Will Ferrell promising to do anything if you go to vote is simply great. Would love to see more political ads like this, maybe a little less desperate, but still funny. The video was uploaded on November 3rd and already has more than 4,4 million views. Congratulations as well and wondering what is Will really going to do.
5. Goalkeeper Trick Shots
