For your viewing pleasure, I submit to you this video, from Algonquin College in Ottawa, Ontario:
I can guarantee that this clip has the fewest views you’ll ever see here on the Flip’s Viral Video spot. Only 5500 views? That’s barely on the radar, a veritable drop in the vast bucket that is the interwebs.
But this video is only three days old. And I see a big future for it. I’ve been waiting for a video like this to come along for a while, in fact–one that is new enough to not have many views yet, but has enough viral elements that it could go big in a hurry (Darth Vader conducting a Yuletide flash mob? Yeah. Geek bait, right there…).
With YouTube’s analytics, I’m going to track the viewership of this video, and see how it changes over the next couple of weeks. So send this to your friends, coworkers, Facebook peeps–the more, the merrier. I’ll be back to revisit this, and share what I’ve learned about this video’s virality at the top of the year.
