Why have these videos gone viral though.
they're not in HD.And Theres better riding out there.
What made these specific videos go "viral"( I read somewhere that, these days you need 5-7 million views in a week to be considered viral. ) ?
And How can we make newer videos - go viral?

In this crazy world the only videos that get that much attention is violence and porn. Make an edit of yourself doing a Blender while banging a chick as she fires off an AK47 into a crowd of spectators.

Youtube regularly puts this vid at the top of the suggested list. Its a great vid, I'm just not sure what key words crank it to the top on a regular basis.
I guess its like some people know how to make your business appear on the first page of a google search. There are certain tricks used.
The vids that youtube puts forward as suggestions to the public will get the hits.

key words, people. 'riding dirty' was a huge song, used in david's video, when the song was new. 'bmx best flatland rider' also is obvious. if you want everyone to see something, appeal to what people are searching for on youtube. axlepeg's video also used a song that was extremely popular. all three of those videos were great, also, and that pushed them over the hump.

Making a video go Viral is the million dollar question. Its not about the quality of the video or the content. Its definitely has to have appeal to the masses. I think if we as a group selected a video to push that direction and got EVERYONE to share it with friends. It would go viral. Its all about getting other people to share a video..that's key. Those are my 2 cents.

One idea behind the number of hits could be attributed to their dating back to the days of myspace.
The following is the truth.  The preceeding is a lie.
