The Internet


I first heard about this song from my sister (who has a 10 year-old girl) a few months ago. This has apparently gone big among the younger set. It’s also set on fire remakes and parodies. I’m always fascinated by stuff that goes viral (think, Gangnam Style). So, last night, I hustled around YouTube looking at those. Here are my top five favourites.

But first, credit to the original.

Now the covers.
First, probably my fave:

Love the lady’s ring, by the way.

Country Version:

For class:

For Humour:

Finally, coz it’s that time of the year:

The Internet in Real-Time.

… you get this:

“What i don’t realize is actually how you’re no longer actually much more well-preferred than you might be right now. You are very intelligent.

You understand therefore significantly on the subject of this subject, produced me in my opinion believe it from numerous varied angles.
Its like men and women are not interested unless it is one thing to do with Lady gaga! Your individual food excellent.

Always handle it up!

I’ve seen a lot of posts that claim that a certain video has “gone viral.”

My question is, who determines when anything has “gone viral?”

Number of views? Over what period? Number of shares? Is the base global? Or within a certain context?

I really want to know.

Strategy is sound and messaging is clear. I’d bet that anyone who watches this video will get the message. In case you don’t, I’ll spell it out below the clip.

 

If any of you didn’t get it, Mike’s in the business of buying golf clubs, buying golf clubs, buying golf clubs and finally, buying golf clubs.

120,000 views (and counting) in one month ain’t bad.

Oh, did I add that Mike’s Golf Shop buys golf clubs?

Some of you may have noticed that I’ve started to blog a little bit more. I’ve now added a photoblog.

Why? Facebook and Social Media is getting too cluttered, too messy. While I still see great value in it (hence the share of this post), it’s getting harder to find stuff I’ve posted. So for things I want to find later, thoughts I want to keep, I started to blog.

Same with photographs. Sure, I’ll still have my mobile uploads but for pictures I want to keep and find later, I’ll use Flickr. This new photoblog is something I wanted to do. Check it out. Why did I want to do this? This is why.
