i was thinking and now, i figure there are THREE ways to find out if a videos viral:
1)if its on 4chan
2)if its in the "review of this year" videos people make
3)if any mention of it gets you banned/flamed

(if you dont believe me, google: boxxy)

I'd love to see one of them end up on Attack of the Show since they always do an "Around the Net" segment showing off 5 popular videos found on the internet. They also do an "Epic Fail" thing at the end of the show.

I'd say that's a very very strong indicator that a video is in fact "Viral"

By my count there are presently 15 versions/reposts of Graham's video in the search results of "nunchuk fail".

Graham's junk is evidently very funny.

why the sandpaper? boxxy was just a camwhore who got lucky with /b/. even though i reside on 4chan (yes, i'm admitting it) i keep 4chan stuff on 4chan.

I like his reasoning for how the "cat's out of the bag" about the video being set up.

Here's a question. Do people even care if it's staged? Funny is funny.

Really the absolute peak is if it makes it on http://www.TodaysBigThing.com. Because if it's on there, then any video response will ALSO be on there.

It may be that he figured out the whole thing (By no means a difficult feat), and simply doesn't want to spoil it. Certainly didn't have to be so smug about it though, but I suspect that was more for humor purposes. Consider another video

I don't think he meant to be all that smug. He thought it was funny, even though he could tell it was set up. And honestly, it is pretty obvious that it's set up to anyone who's slightly skeptical of these things, especially with the ball kick. Luckily much of the internet is not even slightly skeptical :)

Hmm...I suppose you're right. Although I think he, like many other youtubers, feels a certain sense of pride in calling out the falsehood of the video. Though I'm not quite sure how he can "Know" unless he did in fact follow the advice of that person on break and watched cH #6 until 16 minutes in...
