** 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]].

* In ''Literature/CyberJolyDrim'' Jola makes up a silly song out of boredom and heartsickness. Within two days it's everywhere and treated dead serious.

* ''KujibikiUnbalance'' OVA: Doing this is the focus of one of the competitions. The opposing team of {{Otaku}} post pictures of anime girls and get large numbers of hits, while the main characters make feeble attempts at websites about trains and such and get few hits - until they decide to [[{{Fanservice}} post video of the girl characters in skimpy outfits]] and win.

* In the subplot of ''WesternAnimatino/KingOfTheHill'', Kahn wants to become an internet sensation. He tries to reenact the moment when Bill's cowboy hat was blown by the wind and landed perfectly on his head. Even with the failed reenactment video, Kahn, Bobby, Bill, Boomhauer, and Peggy became happy after they received ''4 views'' after a few seconds of uploading.

Within less than 24 hours of the gaffe, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LE7GKvXTazE someone has turned it into a]] StupidStatementDanceMix and spawned dozens of other parodies.

* 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 ''{{Halo}}'' after all), and did not shut them down.
