VIRAL VIDEOS: Week of February 1st

Audio clip:

Here’s what’s going viral now on Facebook.

“Sunny Side 2013 Volkswagen Game Day Video with Jimmy Cliff.”

This Volkswagen Super Bowl commercial begins with clips from a bunch of viral videos showing people throwing tantrums and having meltdowns and then reunites some of those b-list YouTube sensations… in a grassy, sun-kissed field… with reggae legend Jimmy Cliff, who is singing a cover of the Partridge Family theme song, “Get Happy.”

Then, there’s this:

“Feeding the Homeless Prank.”

It’s actually a heart-warming clip that shows a group of guys calling a pizzeria pretending to be cops, trying to deliver a pizza to a group of undercover officers dressed as the homeless.  The whole thing is actually a ruse just to get the restaurant to deliver the pizza to a real homeless couple sitting on a street corner.   The group offer to pay for the pie and wait from their car, watching as the destitute pair receive a warm meal.

And, Facebook users are hitting the “like” button on:

“A Pep Talk from Kid President to You.”

It’s a feel good video that stars a precocious little boy wearing a tux, talking about how to make the world a better place.  The self proclaimed “kid president” delivers his powerful message mixing in quotes from Robert Frost and even a Space Jam reference.  The adorable child ends the video with a heart-tugging dedication to his friend battling cancer.
