Viral videos are everywhere. A decade ago, they were barely a blip on the computer screen, but today we can't escape from the endless footage of guilty dogs, musical cats, laughing babies, and an African honey badger with a major attitude. Why are these little slices of video life so fascinating? Who among us can't resist clicking on "the cutest kitten ever!" and then sharing it with a friend? It's something I'll be pondering from a research perspective for months to come, as BlogHer just launched its own fabulous video channel with the debut of BlogHer TV this past week.
As we dive deep into the quest to understand popular video content, we'd like to ask you to help us out, by selecting your favorites from a short compilation of viral videos below. Each of these videos garnered millions of views on various forms of social media. Some, like the infamous honey badger, turned the tables on traditional media, by going from an online world to a full-blown television ad campaign for pistachios. Vote for your favorite videos and tell us about the ones we forgot to include!
