Sports and viral videos – what do the two have in common? I think they both ignite an audience and bring people together (or in this case, tear them apart), don’t you?
Viral videos captivate audiences across the globe and spread like wildfire. Over 72 hours of video content is uploaded to YouTube every single minute, and that rate continues to grow. People crave these user-generated videos, and sites like Vimeo are adding to people’s ability to spread their video content.
This week, “the biggest rivalry in sports, bar none” plays out live. Wednesday, at 9 p.m., Carolina faces Duke at the Dean E. Smith Center, and fans across the state of North Carolina (and the world, I presume) will be tuned in to see what happens.
The video above is proof that viral videos are more than just a method of procrastination for the world’s youth. This video is proof that viral videos spark hype in their viewers, and can bring excitement and awareness to a particular topic.
Sports films are often a big hit, just think about Remember the Titans or Friday Night Lights. The Blue Blood Rivalry Movie will be unlike any other, though, because it is a real-life rivalry that will never cease to exist.
So, watch this video. Get hyped. And, obviously Go Tar Heels and Go to Hell d00k.
