Giving thanks!

Thanks to Buzzfeed a cool online blogging/writers/video/content submission networking community of all sorts. We have a cool video for folks to showcase, this comes to you from their Youtube channel titled BuzzFeedVideo, and it is something of a trending viral video about New York City, yup the big apple.

Their video is very interesting and funny at the same time. The funny parts are not that eye popping like many other viral videos there on Youtube, but its more or less cynical in nature. It's safe to say that it shall continue to pave its way there and establish itself as one of the top performers of a hot trending phenomenon, its recording length was less than a minute by 1 second. (0:59 seconds long)


On Set

There's a grizzly looking white dude who seems to be arrogant as hell, and he demonstrates differing ways to be as rude as possible in the bad ass city. Pissing people off there might not be the right thing to do though these days, and that's advice coming from a true New Yorker myself, born and raised there 38 years to date, as of the posting and publishing of this pro article.

I must say though that guy has some balls, and maybe his are the size of an elephant nuts, because in the video people are reacting to him. Maybe the video needed to be much longer or have a bit more funny pumped and installed into it, but looking on the bright side Buzzfeed has such a large online following on their website, that maybe it doesn't really matter.

Now as for the other aspect of the video, ummm... where was I. Oh yeah, the interesting parts to that viral 2,709,986 views performance there. (As of May 13, 2013 7:40 am EST)

The interest is sparked by the predominant factors of the text annotations and cool wording that accompanies such a cool display by the Buzzfeed film makers.

New status update! they recently hit 3,204,826 views at 11:00 am EST, on May 13, 2012.

Location of Buzzfeed's office & headquarters in NYC

A marker54 West 21st Street 11th Floor New York, NY 10010 -
54 West 21st Street, New York, NY 10010, USA
get directions

Annotations displayed for their viewers in that cool video:

1. Upstreaming for a cab (It happens all the time, its a very frustrating street struggle)
2. Not walking on the escalator (Some kids slide down them things in NYC - Crazy!)
3. Taking up two seats on the subway (Darn homeless folks, but where else are they going to sleep at?)
4. Petitioning people in the street (They do it on every street corner in Manhattan, yup been there done that, hah!)
5. Feeding pigeons (Ummm... I only like taking pictures of them, them mean folks try to kick em, not cool.)
6. Arguing that New York is Overrated (Who does that?)
7. Not knowing how to swipe your Metrocard (There's a guide for that in NYC, yeah right! Hah!)
8. Doing anything in Times Square (Not funny! at all)
9. Stealing peoples' news paper (Irony - who reads them anyhow today?)
10. Announcing yourself to the subway car (I almost done that once when I got my first website up LOL)
11. Not holding the elevator (Never done that one)
12. Standing in the bike lane (Yup! most New Yorkers do that even with cars coming in the lane - Crazy!)

Not every successful video needs to be seriously funny!

In all actuality the way folks are achieving online success there on Youtube, its a mystery for some, but when you own a massive network that is poring in millions of viewers it is pretty simple to do.

Yes Buzzfeed is that kind of network and they are kicking ass and taking names for sure on the Internet today, putting up a grand total of 81,918,236 views thus far, and ever since 2011 on their Youtube channel. (I'm not sure when they officially launched online as a corporation, but be sure to know I will find out and update this bad boy of a hub article once I do.) Darn Research, Arrr.......ggg :)

This is the way the online everything world and social media is working today, using video powers can take any individual, business, organization, or billion dollar corporation through the roof digitally. All one must do today is design the right platform that appeals to the viewers and you just never know how far it might trend and go socially today.

Online super powers

Many of these networks are tapping into the potential to use social sharing elements from places like Facebook, Twitter and Google plus, and so many other networking platforms who are making things happen on a much more larger scale as well today.

So in fact, you don't need to always have a super funny video launched online, to take it off into the stratosphere and appear to be an unstoppable trend. Some major corporations are paying for advertising as well to get their video campaigns on Youtube up, and running high above these digital clouds here, and you cannot blame them for doing so neither.

So how did people like their video there:

They currently have been liked 9,830 times and disliked 1,689 on their short clip, so that's safe to say the video has appealed to most viewers, but some begged to differ. (One tough crowd huh?)

I actually enjoyed watching the video and have a reaction news video in the works for it. I would like to thank the Buzzfeed staff and video makers/editors for producing such a cool video. Who knows what kind of stats this article or the reaction news videos I been working on, and the one I'm sure to produce soon will be able to drag in, it might even go viral! itself.

We shall see folks, keeping watch of all these trends today is the name of the game online, for content writers like myself, and Youtube Partners looking to truly earn their keep on the Internet today. So yup, wish this content writer, curator, publisher and editor/author some much needed luck! if at all possible.

      @Alexander Mark, thanks for sharing with me and I do understand the time constraints that many of us online writers have. Welcome back bro and I hope things work out for you here as once done in the past as you stated. I'll try to help support your writing efforts for sure as with many countless others do for me as well. Have a wonderful day!

      As I watched the video, I realized New Yorkers get pissed off because it happens all the time, so in fact, doing those things are very "New York" except for doing things in Times Square of course.

      CloudExplorer, I am getting back into the writing mix now that I am quitting my job (that's another story), and Im very glad to see you still working hard here, you've helped promote my hubs in the past and I plan to start getting involved. Already, reading this hub I am overwhelmed with all the ways I can network and promote - so thank you. I know I owe some of my earlier successes to you and I plan to pay you back and pass it on.

      I love New Yorkers by the way so it was easy to pick from your profile page something to read - good job.

      @LKMore01, yes indeed they were right, and thanks for the cool question, I enjoyed that Buzzfeed post, it was hilarious :)

      Mike Pugh 4 years ago from New York City

      @LKMore01, I have no clue about their latest article there about New York, but now that you mentioned it. So I will take a good look into it there. I will return here and try to respond appropriately to your question, and give me some time to get back to you on it if possible.

      Thanks for sharing with me and spreading the hublove, that was cool of you :) & I'm glad you enjoyed reading my hub.

      @always exploring, Thank you Ruby I'm so happy to enjoyed the video and liked my hub here. I'm just trying my best to keep up with the viral trends and the ones that stand out the most as a cool social form of entertainment.

      Who knows how far it may take my online presence and potential, I hope it helps hubpages a bit if anything, you know, because lately things have been very stagnant around these parts :) maybe more writers will pick up on this style of writing as well.

      We shall see in due time, & yupper NYC is such a cool place when people are having tons of fun like this, even when pissing folks off Hah!.

      Voted up Cloud Explorer. Thank you for sharing. How human beings react in uncomfortable situations is fascinating , entertaining and in this particular article, funny. Buzzfeed has as article right now call "21 Things New Yorkers Do Better" Are they true?

      I watched the video and found it interesting. Oh how i would love to see New York up close, see the lights and broadway shows. You are so blessed to live in ' The big apple ' Great hub Mike..I enjoyed watching the dude piss off people. Ha..Cheers

      This was so funny, simply because I was an observer. If any of those things were done to me I would be pissed. But if I see a "grizzly looking white dude", I will try to remember he might be doing another video, so I won't get annoyed. Thanks for a good laugh. You are the best!

      CloudExplorer aka Mike,

      That'd be sweet! I'll be waiting for the memo!

      Thanks a million @billybuc, I just recently learned about that cool web location Buzzfeed. I actually tried to apply for a job there and they clearly knew I wasn't the one to fit their criteria, but its all good bro. (They are stationed out here in Manhattan, well across the bridge from me, I reside in the borough Queens mind you.)

      Maybe my resume wasn't right for them, maybe I didn't quite fit the prospective portfolio they were looking for or maybe its because I neglected to follow instruction and submit a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich recipe as they asked for (Suggested as a substitute for a cover letter), which I thought was a complete joke. Hah! you gotta laugh when that happens bro.

      It's all good, maybe I was testing them to see if they would take a bite and possibly hand me the position somehow, who knows!

      LOL, the fact remains is I am loving this online world we live in currently, or shall I say are viewing daily with our massive binoculars of curious George eyeballs :)

      In any event I still chose to sign up to their awesome community and I will be continuously trying to kick ass their and taking names because it is what we do best online bro! I agree wholeheartedly with you. Hint, Hint!

      Thank you Cat for the hub loving support and cool comment. You my dear are super cool for that.

      Yup Buzzfeed is off the charts today and doing very well, so I will definitely be making that reaction news video and maybe change up the scenes a bit by doing it in my living room rather than my bedroom :)

      It is amazing how many different avenues there are to join the online world and make an impact. Great site recommendation and you can bet I'll be visiting it today. Thanks for the thumbs up, buddy. You are my go-to guru for online information.

      Have a great day my friend.

      Mike aka CloudExplorer, :-)

      How could the girl from New York resist this article? I hate to burst your bubble, but I'm not pissed! :-) Of course, I live Upstate... thank God for that! I could probably spend the day in the city... but live there? In all honesty... this was a very enjoyable article and I did find the video funny, not the knee-slapping kind, but there again... I tend to like the sarcastic humor. Great job... here's to your shit goin' viral! WHOOOO HOOOO!
