Dancing Guy: Persistence is Key to Success on Social Media Networks

The first time I saw the video of the Dancing Guy at the Sasquatch Music Festival 2009 I couldn’t stop laughing, and the video still cracks me up every time I see it – I’m not the only one, by the way. The famous first viral video of the Dancing Guy at Sasquatch already scored more than 2 million views on YouTube, while there are several other version of the same scene taken by other people in the crowd, from different angles, and each of the videos already hit the several thousand hundreds views on YouTube.

So why is this video getting so viral? Simply because it’s a funny video, and also because it’s about a community – I bet each and everyone of the person in the crowd viralized the video on their own, spreading it out to the social web, sending the link to friends and sharing it on social networks. Let’s watch the video first, then we go back to discuss why it is also inspirational, beside of being funny.
