How to make your video go viral on YouTube – get it on the TV

HOW to make your video go viral on YouTube. The secret is…there isn’t one. It’s about celebrity endorsements and geting it on the telly. (One other thing – do all experts on the internet always have this chap’s accent? In the 1970s and 80s, all computer experts sounded like Hal from 2001 A Space Odyssey or Speak ‘n’ Spell. No they sounds like acto in The Dead Poet’s Society. Is YouTube a haven for creativity or just a big brad that get your stuff for free?

Westlife. All is forgiven

THERE hasn’t been much bad TV out of me lately.  Reason being, I’m just back from a trip to Japan.

Luckily, a late night flick around the channels granted me this clip which I carefully transported home with me on my flipcam.

Precious cargo indeed.

I don’t know how I got it through customs to be honest. I thought we were on high alert?
