This is a question many people, specially online marketers always ask, how or why videos go viral? The problem that this question is very hard to answer without showing you different type of video content that you will never think it has viral effect power, but it did. And sometimes the creator didn't even have a lot of channel subscribers.
Below I'm sharing a great speech from the masters of TED, in this presentation Kevin Allocca explain some of the reasons why some media have a virality effect higher than others, even if you think is just an stupid clip. Now before you watch the presentation I need to understand something:

Remember that if you video get crazy amount of views you can get YouTube to pay you for the content just like it happen to the parents of Charlie and Fenton, you know, the kid that got his finger bit by his little brother.
