What Makes a Video Have Over 2 Million Views?
Examine any popular video and you will find components that move human emotions. Examine any viral video and you will find that two or more emotions are moved.
Take for example the above video titled: "Baby Got Back In Department store." This video has had over two million views on YouTube and depending on who you are just the title itself could have an emotional effect on you but the video itself can take you through a list of questions that evoke emotions.
As you watch the video your mind goes through a series of thoughts about what these kids are doing, what things you did as a kid, what kind of trouble they are going to get into, what people in the store must have thought when they did this, what the Walmart people thought, how many other kids have done this and other questions that support the main question: What is the story behind this video?
Are there viral videos that you've seen that make you experience more than one emotion?
