How to Piss Off Every New Yorker in 36 Seconds - Reaction News Viral Report
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)
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.

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.
