…on the flip side of a recent mailed clipping was this NY Times article about studies of why on-line videos go viral – interesting article: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/20/science/why-that-video-went-viral.html
The article has links to four video examples (but it was hard to find the links in that article, so I’m making it easier for you here):
This one, called BABY, got over 32,000,000 views – check it out at:
I remember myself drawn into another video called FIRST KISS that now has over 82,000,000 views – check it out at:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpbDHxCV29A&feature=youtu.be  (you can actually make money with viral videos, so not sure what someone made with this 82M clicks video)
and one of a girl quitting her job got 18M views at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpbDHxCV29A&feature=youtu.be
and this Home Depot marriage proposal got over 12M at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4HpWQmEXrM

And yet another emotional example in this article (just so you do’t miss it) is this one about a young dying cancer patient who is leaving the world a better place with his music and inspired living each day, titled MY LAST DAYS: MEET ZACH SOBIECH:
