It’s a brand new year and already the viral video geniuses have graced us with their presence.  Here’s to another year of ridiculously clever, over the top, successfully ranked videos!

Homeless Man With A Golden Voice


Talk about an overnight sensation! This past week, a video surfaced of a man, Ted Williams, panhandling on the streets of Columbus, Ohio and claiming to have a perfect voice for radio and television announcements.  Thanks to this viral video, the job offers have been pouring in.  2 days after the release of the video, Williams was invited to be a guest on a local radio show, and has appeared on CBS’s Early Show and the Today Show.  It has recently been reported that the Cleveland Cavaliers has just offered Williams a full-time job AND a house.  This just goes to show – second chances do really happen!  We wish Ted Williams good luck on his new journey!

Gillette’s Behind the Scene Commercial with Sylvie van der Vaart


Do you want to know how Dutch model Sylvie van der Vaart gets silky smooth legs?  Well, you won’t find out in this video, but you will definitely see some very impressive juggling skills by the acclaimed model!  This video was once again strategically released (recall another video released in August with Tennis star Roger Federer) to demonstrate an amazing hidden talent.. in HEELS!  Sylvia van der Vaart is the wife of a Dutch footballer Rafael Ferdinand van der Vaart.  Like husband, like wife!

The Brick Thief: A LEGO Short Film


Robots, a castle, an entire army… LEGO definitely brings back some childhood memories!  If you’re a fan LEGOs or not, you’ll love this very creative and entertaining stop motion film by LEGO! If you can dream it, you can build it.

The Chase Film


With the launch of Intel’s new i5 Processor, the company released this short action/adventure video across a desktop.   A Bond film with an Intel twist, the character passes through a number of codes, documents, social network sites, instant messenger, Google maps and a collage of other windows Intel has to offer.  It begs the question, where can your processor take you? Clever, huh?


One thought on “Viral Video Friday!

    The man with the golden voice is an awesome story of recovery and second chances. I’m glad to see that that the Cleveland Cavaliers organization and NBC corp. have given the second chance, Its not like he was senselessly killing dogs or anything. Hopefully, he doesn’t fall back in to addiction though.

    Also, “the Chase” commercial was like an action movie through your PC. I kind of hated it and kind of loved it. It was a really good premise and grabbed your attention while showing you things that you do daily on computer such as facebook, google maps, google earth and so on but does she have to be a ninja or whatever she was. Oh well atleast it wasn’t like those AT&T commercials where the guys the president because he changed his train ticket to sit next to a girl. I believe that is considered stalking in some states by the way. Nice post Aimee.
