I just heard this term for the first time in my life. It may be new to you too so let me take it in lights first.

Viral Video as explained in Wikipedia is:

a video that becomes popular through the process of Internet sharing, typically through internet media sharing websites. Viral videos often contain humorous content and include televised comedy sketches.

So does that mean every video that has humor in it and is seen by means of sharing is a Viral Video?

Yes, that’s absolutely right.

These videos can also be described as short video clips, often shot on cell phones by amateurs, and shared on the social networking sites like youtube, veoh or via emails.

Unusual name but they are viral videos because of their virus like nature i.e. the way they explode across the Internet landscape. Imagine something started as a normal funny video of friends and withing hours or days, features on a news channel or on the home page of a popular social networking site. It’s definitely a virus.

See an example of viral video:

I did not find anything unusual or great in it but it stood as the most watched video on youtube today, almost 1.2 million views.

You search for viral videos on net and there are number of dedicated websites for it. One of them I found good is


So, enjoy the only virus you would love to have 🙂
