I am always amazed at the sheer number of viral videos. I mean really? Can people actually keep track of this nonsense?
I am even more amazed that creating viral videos hasn’t really make an entrance into the Australian sports world.
My personal favourites are the ‘Call Me Maybe’ lip syncs by the Miami Dolphins cheerleaders and the Harvard baseball team, as well as ‘Every Fan in the NFL in 90 Seconds’. Yes, there are videos that have had more views and were viral-er (is that a thing? more viral? how does one say that?) but these are my favourite because they were actually created by a team/league/whatever and not just a ridiculous sport moment accidentally caught on camera like the ones at Bleacher Report. I’m not against that… but it’s getting lucky. And most teams don’t have the luxury of hoping that some fan will catch an outrageous moment on camera and the video will go viral all on its own.
So you want to make a viral video? Here’s what you need.
