So you want to go viral...

This is the way to do it.  Anyone who says this doesn't appeal to our target demographic(s) is insane. 

Let's give bitUSD for something like this.

It says the money was refunded by the charity (don't know why), so they did this...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hyXJeus-wm4&list=PLt3u9VXV3UGRbaXgcKWmvo6P2Mr41DIDT
(tipped fast food workers $100)

Edit: Just saw this by one of the same guys http://youtu.be/xSURldy2EJE?t=1m56s, "If you like Star Craft, tell girls that you like Star Craft - who cares?!"
Which reminded me of this https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=10654.msg140319#msg140319 (bytemaster mentioning Star Craft)

It's the ALS ice bucket with a sex toy. I doubt they raised much in person, but a video (even of a failed experiment) can be viral gold.

Each of these things works once. Then you need to anticipate the next twist, the next wave, and set the next trend, before someone else does it.

Get people to put a frog down their pants or something!

EDIT: My last suggestion is lighthearted only. No animals were harmed in the making of this posting.

I think making a viral video could give Bitshares good exposure, but the video in the OP is a little... tasteless.

Yea I agree.  Getting skeezys to ride those things was covered a ton by Stern years ago.  I'd have more respect for these guys if they had given the $$ to some charity on the down low.  Instead, they made some feel good spectacle out of it.  I mean it is nice to tip random hard-working people $100, but meh.

We need something that is like an apple vs microsoft thing, but bts(x) vs btc.  The confirmation times, the addresses, etc.  Wrap it up in some be a hip person package.  Thats the idea I've had, although there is nothing there to make it viral and no one is likely to pay for the ad being placed.

depends on the target audience.  but I do agree that this particular one could be seen as tasteless.  my point is that between videos like this and trail lewous's "skittels" commercials...are a great ways to go viral by using shockingly stupid humor directed at a generation who doesn't take themselves too seriously.  If you watch commercials these days you can see these target demographics very well targeted.  Trail even got his own mainstream "Skittels" commercial!

Last night I remembered "Celebrity Death Match". I thought a match between supporters of Fiat, Bitcoin and BTS would be fun.

Then I watched Celebrity Death Match on Youtube - it wasn't as funny as I remembered!

I think something in the style of this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlTA3rnpgzU would be great.
Fast-paced, humorous, easy to understand but gets the idea across.

Yes !  I think this is a very good place to start for inspiration.  It doesn't require any serious video editing.  Although some animations would be useful I don't think they would be needed.

There is a line trying to figure out how to make it outragous/fun and still be taken somewhat seriously.
