4.- Magnetic Kids: No, you don't have to make your kids eat magnets on front of the camera (good idea for a viral video, don't you think?), what I mean is that many top videos just show natural shots of cute kids doing what they do best, being kids.
5.- Music That Get Stock In Your Head: Create or by the rights of a really catchy music and use it to make a viral video around it.
6.- Injury Clips: As soon it's not me or you, we'll watch it, and many other will watch it too. That's why so many top reality TV series are base on this technique.

A hotel use this strategy to show off their rooms on Myspace, by using a beautiful model that undress down to her panties and bra and shows how comfortable and cool are those rooms.
Stay Away From The High Quality Trap.
Many people will tell you that your clips needs to be produce in high quality for it to be effective, and other will say that high quality will take away the natural flow of your content, the truth is that both ways are OK, as soon is relevant to what you audience is looking for, and if it doesn't interfere with your message.
For example, if you want to use funny type of clips that look home made, a normal quality will be the best choice, but if you are doing an education or training video you need to use the best quality you can. Now, in both cases your media have to be clear enough to make the clip watchable, if not will cut your chances of turning off the viral effect of it.
