Two Kinds of Viral Videos

I got a request from Jason DeRusha of WCCO TV to shoot and upload a video talking about some of our videos at Mayo Clinic that have “gone viral.” So here’s a little discussion of the two basic kinds of viral videos we’ve had:

Here’s the blog post on Sharing Mayo Clinic where we embedded the video of the Cowans. You can see other highly viewed videos on our Mayo Clinic YouTube channel.

I will update this post later with some more details, but mainly want to get the video available for Jason.

Update: Here’s the story Jason ran. My video submission was mentioned briefly at the end.

Be Sociable, Share!
