A Resignation Video Letter That Went Viral

Posted on: October 2nd, 2013 by jaypoole No Comments

The creator of this viral video is one Marina Shifrin. Apparently frustrated with the demands placed upon her by a boss who was only interested in “quantity, how fast we write and how many views each video gets”. She decided to quit and to record the moment for posterity. And because she worked(s?) in viral video making she presumably thought it may be the best chance she’d ever have of producing one that actually took off? Quite artistically she dubbed her effort “An Interpretive Dance For My Boss Set To Kanye West’s Gone” ?

Anyway she was either still at work at 4:30am in the morning, or decided to go into work early (presumably to use the equipment to knock up her viral video). In either case she used the extremely early and unsocial hour to highlight her plight as it featured in the video. So maybe she did have a schmuck of a boss or maybe it was that she’s been working an all nighter before she snapped. Whichever, she still knocked out what will probably be the best viral video her company has produced.

The big question is…. if the company she worked for is responsible for creating news videos – has everyone just been hoodwinked and she’s actually just taken a few weeks well-earned vacation safe in the knowledge this video has now climbed to over 11 million views and earning a lot of publicity..?

Strange how her boss and colleagues have seen fit to respond in the same manner..

Twerking? She’s Smoking Hot..

This video was only published 6 days ago and has already got over 9 million views. Helped in no small part by an appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel show – but this wouldn’t have happened without it being an incredibly fortunate (unfortunate at the time) timing by the entry of her friend.

The True Story

It appeared a few days after this that Jimmy Kimmel came clean on his show and played a full length video of what had really happened. It was all done with a stunt girl and Jimmy Kimmel himself was on hand with a fire extinguisher.

Dancing like these guys do is definitely enough to be shared.

David After The Dentist

Some times people just get lucky and capture an event that everyone can relate to. In this example David has been to the dentist and is still feeling the effects of presumably a little bit of nitrous oxide. So a humerous conversation that he’s having with his Dad eventually gets shared among 118 million people – and still rising. That’s more than the entire population of UK and Spain combined.

These guys have a pretty popular Youtube channel which helps to get the virality going, but this is an example of a low budget viral video that works with just a simple idea. It arouses enough curiosity in each of a sequence of short scenarios that viewers are waiting to see what will come next. The Rhino was indeed the best ending.

So what makes this so popular. Over 135 million views and rising.. It contains a number of things that people will always respond to: -
1. It’s got a cute animal
2. The animal really does appear to talk

This is one of the all-time most popular viral videos. Again this is just typical video footage that families take and when you have young kids then anything can happen. This has since started a blog, an app and other branded items such as mugs and T shirts.
