1. Healthcare.gov: “Things Everybody Does But Doesn’t Talk About”

This week’s viral number one is for Healthcare.gov. To remind young Americans to sign up for healthcare.gov before the Sunday deadline, President Barack Obama decided to partner with Buzzfeed.

Total social shares: 388,633.

Take a 2015 Mustang and a beautiful female professional stunt driver. Then, ask a bunch of unsuspecting men to meet her on a (wild) blind date. And you have an epic “speed dating” prank and a hilarious video by Ford, to promote its new 2015 Mustang. Was it love at first drive? You can be the judge of that. Total YouTube views: 5.1 million.

5. GoPro: “Owl Dance-Off”
