Viral Video Nostradamus – Babies, Cats and Turtles – Will These Videos Go Viral?

Share on

It’s been several weeks since our last Viral Video Nostradamus post, and another attempt at predicting viral success is long overdue.  The hope is that I can hit on at least one of these, and over time begin to have a better understanding about what it is that makes some videos skyrocket and others fizzle.  My track record thus far is pretty… average.  Nowhere to go but up, right?  Let’s give it another shot.  Here are a few videos I’ve seen this week that I believe have great potential to go viral:
