We know, it’s a little meta, a viral video about viral videos. But how could we resist, when this parody encapsulates all we’ve ever wanted to know about making a video an online sensation.
“Buyral” seems to have tapped into the future of viral and is working to make viewers themselves obsolete — as long as it gets the clicks.
And Buyral looks like it has the edge in viral innovation, not only enlisting the elderly, but even the youngest of tots to be click engineers. And don’t forget those “clickterns,” making it possible for videos to explode, all without the messy job of getting real people to watch them.
This company even seems to have figured out that anyone can make a video go viral — it takes no skill, just outsourcing and an algorithm. And a lot of laptops and mice.
But we’re lucky someone has figured out the anatomy of a viral video. If not, then how would Mashable even have its Watercooler?
And don’t forget, with all that clicking — you gotta stretch.

Tara the Hero Cat is a feline of many talents. Unfortunately, baseball isn’t one of them.
California’s Bakersfield Blaze invited Tara to throw out the first pitch on Tuesday night after a video of her saving a young boy from a vicious dog attack went viral last week.
The media hit the minor league baseball field in full force, and cameras rolled as Tara attempted to toss out a pitch as the boy she saved sat close by. Cats don’t exactly throw like A-Rod, so she sort of swatted at a ball on a string three times before her owner, Roger Triantafilo, admitted defeat and tossed out a real ball instead.
Tara blamed her bad toss on humans. Typical cat.
It seems like a good time for her to take a much-deserved cat nap.
