I’ve been posting viral videos for awhile now and have been able to deduce a few things in the process:
- People love it when animals (especially cats} do unexpected humanlike things
- Someone being humiliated usually means a guaranteed 50 Facebook shares
- If you’re overweight, carry a resemblance to Grendel, and like to sing Ke$ha songs into your webcam, you could become famous in a very specific way
This viral video doesn’t fit the usual criteria. It’s just a professional tennis player who broke her racquet because she hit the ball so damn hard. Or maybe it was just a defective racquet. Regardless, I only want to know one thing. Viral video watchers: Does this interest you? Would it be better if it was a cat wearing a magician’s outfit who broke the racquet? I guess we’ll find out.
