Last week, a friend of mine posted a video on Youtube of him doing longsnapping trick shots. The video gained about 30,000 views in 2 days. I believe this was party due to the fact that, both a football website and Deadspin posted and tweeted about his video. This shows that, if the right people see a video, they can greatly influence the view count.
Since the video was released, he has had several interviews with news stations, and has a couple more planned in the upcoming weeks. His story really shows us how anyone can make a viral video. When he made the video, he had no intention of it going viral. I am interested to see how the view count changes in the upcoming weeks after he is shown on several of the news stations.
