Viral Friday: Damn Ponies

Viral Friday is the weekly viral video chart of ViralBlog, showing the 5 most popular viral videos, commercials, games or user-generated videos, carefully selected and ranked by popularity, viral impact & spread.


This week’s Viral Friday #1 position goes to Nissan – Pôneis Malditos (damn ponies) which are not much of a help under the hood of your car. The #2 goes to Real Apes and Rise of the Apes Mashup, are you looking forward to check the monkey pavilion in your local zoo this weekend? And on the 3rd position are Ryan Reynolds & Jason Bateman promoting The Change-Up movie in a, let’s say, unconventional way.

Do you want to see this week’s list from 1 to 5? Go on then, and have a look! We’d like to hear your opinion about the virals. Have fun!

Get our ViralBlog asset: the Viral Friday Widget! By default the widget shows you the latest Viral Friday, but it’ll also show you the seven most recent postings on ViralBlog.

1. Nissan – Pôneis Malditos

All drivers know, that it’s horse power that matters. So what do you want in your car? Horse power or pony power? Maybe they’re cute, but let’s face the truth, useless. Nissan promotes it’s powerful Frontier with this video with more than 6 million views in a week. How could it happen? Maybe because if you don’t forward the video to ten people, you’ll get the “curse of the pony”!

2. Real Apes And Rise Of The Apes Mashup

We had the viral Ape with AK-47 in Viral Friday a few weeks ago, here comes the mashup trailer for the movie Rise of the Planet of the Apes with 2 million views in 4 days. The movie is already out, curious about it.

3. Ryan Reynolds & Jason Bateman – The Change-Up

The idea of two guys switching roles is not that new concept, we’ve seen it before, but it is still more or less appealing. The promotion of the The Change-Up with Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman kicked in with a 1,3 million views since the 2nd of August.

4. O365 MGX Copy

A mailman never opens an envelope and reads the mail, right? It’s a secret and the conversation should be only between the sender and the recipient. Is it really so? Not for the GmailMan! It’s being said that Microsoft is behind it and surfaced just as Google launched its Email Intervention. The GmailMan with 700.000 views is a creepy dude, isn’t he?

A girl walking down the Bryant Park in New York, nothing uncommon. With 4 iPads on her head? Wait, wat? The viral promo for Cosmos’ new iPad-only magazine for men is a cool one and hit almost 700.000 views in 5 days.
