* In ''Anime/YuriOnIce'', the plot is well and truly kicked off when the Nishigori triplets record and upload Yuri Katsuki's flawless imitation of figure skating champion Victor Nikiforov's routine to the internet. Soon the video goes viral, catching Victor's attention and inspiring him to travel to Japan and become Yuri's coach for the next Grand Prix.

* Happened to ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', believe it or not. Apparently, Rooster Teeth had more than 2 million downloads within a day of posting the first episode. They got popular enough that it took Bungie only a week to notice them. Fortunately, Bungie ''loved'' the series (it was essentially free publicity for ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' after all), and did not shut them down.

** Second on the list linked above is [[BritainsGotTalent Susan Boyle]], who made it to 100 million views in nine days. The other runners-up took a while longer to break 100m; by comparison, for instance, Music/LadyGaga's "Bad Romance" took 18 days and Music/RebeccaBlack's "Music/{{Friday}}" took 45. Not too shabby, but not quite "instant" by that point either.

* Although some criticism [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment and controversy]] surrounded it, the video ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Y4MnpzG5Sqc Kony 2012]]'' by Invisible Children certainly succeeded at raising awareness of the Ugandan war criminal Joseph Kony (notorious for his use of ChildSoldiers). The 30-minute documentary racked up over 100 million views in just ''six days.'' According to [[http://corp.visiblemeasures.com/news-and-events/blog/bid/79626/Update-Kony-Social-Video-Campaign-Tops-100-Million-Views those who measure such things]], it's the fastest-spreading viral video in the history of the internet--all the more impressive when you consider that it's a long, serious piece that doesn't involve [[LOLCats kittens]].
