VIRAL VIDEOS: Week of December 20th


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

“Couch Gag: ‘White Christmas Blues’ – The Simpsons.”

Released by Animation Domination, this clip from FOX’s The Simpsons shows their Christmas show opener couch gag.  The holiday edition features Homer sporting elf ears, racing home on a snowmobile; the hippy bus driver Otto smoking a candy cane, and Marge being forced into a dog sled drag race with Mister Burns… whose hounds get side-tracked by Dr. Eleanor Abernathy… aka the Crazy Cat Lady character.

Then, there’s this:

“Grumpy Cat Stars in ‘It’s Hard to be a Cat at Christmas.'”

This trending video stars Grumpy Cat, Colonel Meow and a few other Internet feline celebrities because, that’s apparently a thing now… in this ad for Friskies.  The spot features a catchy jingle while the cats look angry and sad;   typical cat emotions – while waiting for their holiday treat.  A can of wet food.  But, the silly video is for a good cause.  For every view up to the first half a million hits, Friskies will donate one can of wet food to a cat in need.

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

“Kmart Ship My Trousers Commercial.”

It’s the holiday edition of the big box retailer’s viral “Ship My Pants” spot, featuring the characters from A Christmas Carol.  Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and even the ghostly trinity from the classic Christmas tale proclaim their excitement over Kmart’s free shipping options.
