It has become a very popular online video during the year of 2006. The video depicts a little boy going crazy over his Nintendo 64 that he has received for Christmas.

I have recently come to realize that there are numerous variations of this Nintendo 64 kid on Youtube. There are remixes with special effects and shorter versions of the online video. I have experienced difficulty in locating the original creator of the video. I gave up after surfing through tons of pages on Youtube. This video is apparently available on Break.com as well. The Youtube version that I found titled “Kid Screams for Nintendo 64” is 45 seconds long and gets to the point. It was uploaded 7 months ago, so it has a bit of legitimacy to it. The “Kid Screams for Nintendo 64” online video is very entertaining. I would nominate it for a top prize on America’s Funniest Home Videos. This video is so popular, that it is included in the latest BMW automobile commercial. I wonder if the creators were able to land a lucrative deal with the automobile manufacturer. What are the odds of BMW using an old home video featuring your kid going insane while wearing a pair of pajamas? Aside from its BMW appeal, the “Kid Screams for Nintendo 64” video has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times. It is certainly worth looking at.

Who knew that you could become popular by playing with soda and candy? The Extreme Diet Coke & Mentos Experiment #4 video is number six on the list of Top 10 Online Videos of 2006. This is no secret. Everyone knows about the Diet Coke & Mentos Video. It has become an online viral video sensation over the summer. Its creators have been featured on television and in mainstream media publications. The Extreme Diet Coke & Mentos Experiment video has received over 6 million hits. Its creators have also earned over $40,000 with an online revenue sharing program.

Steal This Disc
There are so many videos online that countless numbers of them fall by the wayside. “Steal this Disc” is an obscure, yet unforgettable online video. This video is number seven on the list of Top 10 Online Videos of 2006. It depicts a filmmaker selling copies of his movie on the street. The filmmaker expresses his anger with regards to mediocre profits that are being given to him by a major movie distribution company. In “Steal This Disc”, he urges people to download movies and sneak into theaters with cameras to record films “….because the real piracy is going on in Hollywood”. This seems to be a fictional piece that was scripted. However, it looks like a standard home video and delivers the message with a knockout. “Steal This Disc” can be found at www.ifilm.com.
Drive Thru Church
This is number eight on the list of Top 10 Videos of 2006. The “Drive Thru Church” video is fairly amusing. The use of religion may not go over to well with some viewers. I especially enjoy the concept of an automated church service. In my opinion, the video speaks to the mechanical operation of our society. There are so many automated systems that are taking place of human beings. Customer service is no longer handled by humans. Corporations are using computerized systems for many procedures. There are even computers adding up our groceries in the self-check out lane at the supermarket. Expedited church service is another perspective that can be taken from the “Drive Thru Church” video. There are some people who do not enjoy sitting in church for hours. A drive thru church service may be a good idea for those who prefer to get in and out of Sunday Mass. The “Drive Thru Church” video can be found at www.metacafe.com.
Sam Has 7 Friends
The “Sam has 7 Friends” videos are part of a daily podcast. It is number nine on the list of Top 10 videos of 2006. This video series is similar to a network soap opera. The only difference lies in the production value and its lack of television stars such as Shemar Moore and Michelle Stafford of “Young and The Restless”. I have seen one or two episodes. The series appears to be filled with drama, jealousy and suspense. The “Sam Has 7 Friends” videos have received thousands of views. It has become popular over the summer and keeps dedicated viewers wanting more. The main character will eventually be killed by one of her friends. This plot has become a great marketing ploy for the podcast. “Sam Has 7 Friends” videos can be viewed at www.samhas7friends.com.
