The stunning truth about YouTube is that it has become an entertainment outlet that could rival even the cinema – maybe not in the experience, but definitely in the entertainment value. As a matter fact, YouTube probably surpasses any other media when it comes to that. There have been plenty of YouTube sensations throughout the years. Many of them have gone viral just because of their simple yet hilarious nature.
Some of those videos were captured from being at the right place at the right time, while others were carefully planned. When I say YouTube sensations, I just know some of you instantly think about a few clips or videos that have been special to you. Who has not seen the hilarious online success “Charlie Bit My Finger” right? It became an instant member of the YouTube sensations hall of fame when it was uploaded to YouTube on May 22nd, 2007. To date, the 56 second video has racked up over 521 million views. It’s something that even the most popular artists usually never reach with their million dollar videos.
Even though we see these insanely successful videos come and go, we never really know what happens to the people after their videos have had their run. Where are they now, and what are they doing? Instant success can either come and go or be utilized to spawn even more success. Look at the fresh video called “How Animals Eat Their Food” that was uploaded just 8 days ago.
