Any video with a cat is almost guaranteed to be a hit. This one hit the big time when it was uploaded in 2007. It now has over 39 million views.

“Will it blend? That is the question.” That’s the question being asked by Tom Dickson at the start of his videos for Blendtec. It may be a marketing campaign, but the videos are definitely interesting and funny.
Can you make your own funny video go viral?
