This Week In Viral Videos – Lady Gaga, Komodo Dragons & Rear End Cams

Happy Friday, folks! The weekend is almost here and you know what that means – it’s time for our weekly viral video roundup. This week has been a Lady Gaga fest, what with her egg Grammy entrance and release of her new single ‘Born This Way’, but we’ve also seen a number of other viral videos on the radar including Britney Spears’ new music video, outtakes from VW’s hit Super Bowl commercial, a bizarre new Old Spice clip and a tricky hidden camera video. Check them all out below, and if you’ve still got a hankering to watch more viral videos check out our Weekly Dose of Cute and Weekly Dose of WTF posts from earlier this week.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga has been one of the biggest viral sensations of this week. It all started last Friday when Gaga’s new single ‘Born This Way’ was uploaded to YouTube. Over the weekend the Internet was in a tizzy because the first thing everybody noticed about ‘Born This Way’ was that it sounded suspiciously like Madonna’s ‘Express Yourself’. Don’t hear it? Check out YouTuber Jill Goldberg’s below for the comparison.

On Sunday Gaga stirred things up even more by showing up at the Grammy’s in an egg. A video of Lady Gaga on the GRAMMY red carpet in an egg has been viewed over 2.1 time this week. Next Media Animation made a hilarious animated explanation of Gaga’s egg entrance, which you can click here to watch.

But despite the controversy that Lady Gaga has drawn since the release of her Maddona-esque new single and her egg entrance, some people are getting only good press from ‘Born This Way’. A little girl named Maria has already gotten about 1.5 million views for her amazing cover of Gaga’s new song.

Britney Spears – Hold It Against Me

Britney Spears new music video ‘Hold It Against Me’ just hit YouTube and is definitely climbing the charts faster than you can say “Hit me baby one more time”. We’re expecting this video to explode. The original audio-only clip that was uploaded to YouTube about a month ago has been viewed nearly 5.5 million times, and even a series of 5-second teasers uploaded over the last weeks racked in millions of views. Even if you’re not a Britney Spears fan you should still be able to appreciate that she knows how to build a buzz!

Old Spice | Komodo

Old Spice has just come out with the latest video in their new campaign. It’s only got 78,000 views so far and it’s definitely the strangest video we’ve seen come out of this campaign, but it’s still on its way up. I think people are still watching the videos, hoping for something great. But I still have to side with the YouTuber that wrote the comment below.

Volkswagen: The Making of “The Force” Commercial

For the past two weeks VW’s “The Force” commercial has been on our weekly video roundup and surprise-surprise, it’s back again this week. This time a behind-the-scenes video of bloopers and deleted scenes is going viral. It’s got 1.6 million views so far.

Rear View Girls – Los Angeles

And with over 2 million views, Jessie & Reanin have gone viral for busting people checking out the junk in their trunk with ‘A$$ Cam’. I’ve got a feeling that some of the guys in this video are going to be in trouble when their girlfriends and wives see this!
