While the T-Mobile boogey flashmob ad has been the talk of the month, I’ve been invited to take a look at a new viral ad created by Kickers, the rock & wolling shoe brand. The brand has been synonymous with the British popular culture for as long as people from the 80’s and 90’s can remember, as such its shoes are still worn by the popstar feet from Jarvis Cocker (see below) and Arctic Monkeys.

To carry on with the long-standing tradition Kickers pitched in at music festivals around the Britland last year to gather up revelers to throw down their fanciest footwork to come up with below crazy-snazzy viral.

A few days ago, I was kindly asked to nominate my best viral video of the year to the Voscars, an exclusive event from Virgin Mobile, which I attended later to preview some tear jerking, jaw dropping and head smacking virals from the year of 2008. And after 30 viral nominations from 30 bloggers were sliced, diced and grilled by 30 other panel judges (the number is quite meaningful here), the winner of the Best Viral of 2008 was!…

  1. Jizz In My Pants

A little birdie told me it was a rude viral but who cares it’s xmas, anything is allowed here.

There were some equally well spotted virals at the Voscars, and below is rest of the top 10 virals of the year!

2. Diesel’s xXx SFW p0rn x

3. Cat Man Do

4. Investing in Wind Energy

5. BBC BinLaden Tape

6. Barack Roll

7. Unexpected Performance

8. Where the Hell is Matt?

9. TFL’s Cyclist Awareness

10. Marmite Breastfeeding Ad

Finally, Virgin Mobile has a highly commended viral of its own too. It’s called “30 peas” and it promotes Virgin Mobile’s 30p a day mobile broadband, which gives you the clue as to why everything was numbered 30.
