  1. Another good conversation. I’m here to support the idea that viral videos usually have a lot of staff time behind them. I remember this Techcrunch interview with a guy whose team pull out all stops to try to make videos viral for clients. His method illustrates that it takes way more design and marketing work than just having attractive content. Like everything else on the web, the viral videos are being gamed. At my company, after reading this interview, we gave up hope of having a runaway viral hit video, there’s no way we’d have the time to do anything like the campaign outlined here.
