Not so much viral as a squashed bug.

What actually counts as 'viral'?

Viral is normally considered to be when the video is spread by viewers acting on their own initiative out of a enthusiasm that others may derive the same pleasure (or sometimes displeasure). Typically, the property will undergo an exponential growth of views.

It is not posting about it on Facebook because the creator of the video told you to. There's nothing wrong with that as a means of marketing, of course - but it's not normally what's meant by something going viral.

He really needs to understand that it is hard to make a video over 30 mins viral.
With a name like Smucker's, it has to be god.

So, true! Especially when they are as boring and predictable as a Ray Comfort video.

Ray Comfort is proud of his number of comments? One of them was mine, where I mentioned bananas and Plushy Kinds, and he didn't deign to answer. The same goes for most of the comments, so he has nothing to be proud of.

Zilch, it's like that old saying: I don't care what they say about me in the newspaper as long as they spell my name correctly.

Ray doesn't care what the comments say, it's that he's getting attention.

I know that, vms, but Ray Comfort is like a missing tooth: you keep tonguing the place even though you know nothing's there...
