I got introduced to what I regard as being the early form of viral videos in the late 90’s and early 00’s when we swapped diskettes and cds full of funny clips between friends. Looking back, videos back then seemed to be a little bit less strange than what they are today. Here’s three oldies and three recent oddies.

Danger of Ice Fishing:
What most of us has probably wanted to do at some point:
Video of quadcopter made out of a taxidermied cat:
Prank gone bad. Man dressed up as a zombie harassed his neighbors and was nearly shot:
How to troll a sprider:
So, as long as there are people and video cameras, there will be viral videos.
