What have been the most interesting and influential viral dance videos?

A friend of mine is starting a research project on dance videos (which certainly doesn't mean just ones created by professionals - so e.g. Saudi penguin dances are just as interesting as Gangnam Style) that have gone viral on Youtube or other online platforms. Many examples may comprise of both professional and amateur creation e.g. Happy . The key thing is that dance is the *main* reason for the viral spread. What are the most interesting and influential (or otherwise noteworthy!) examples of this in your experience? Thanks for your suggestions!!

Help me find this funny video I saw on ebaums world Circa 2002?

I saw some funny 2 minute video basically a fake advertisement for some presumably made up company (something like rockman automatronics). The guy toured a room talking about how great the products were, but using super scientific sounding (most of probably made up) words, like "panfandeled ding alarm", and that's what made it funny, because you couldn't understand almost anything he said. At the end it said something like "you can find our rockman automatronics wherever fine electronics are sold" or something like that. Bonus points if you can source who made the funny video and why

Confusing website - what do they want?

Last week I saw an ad for what appeared to be a search engine in the London Evening Standard. I presumed it was viral marketing as the ad was pretty opaque - but the website doesn't seem to be advertising anything or indeed make sense. What's going on? [more inside]

Name this fashion video: model, meadow, carefully aimed wind machine

I'm trying to track down a viral fashion video that featured a model in a meadow of flowers at golden hour, with a wind machine following her gestures, flattening the grass and flowers. I can't remember what it was advertising — maybe perfume?

Internet activity videos - DO try this at home!

Remember the Diet Coke and Mentos video? I'm looking for similar examples of internet memes that members of the public could, in theory, learn to replicate at home. Stuff like cup stacking; make-up tutorials; Double Dream Hands; or opening a beer with your arm. It mustn't be anything that requires special powers (eg double-jointedness) or special props - just household objects. Suggestions?

What are these comedy videos?

There was a series of viral videos of a somewhat rotund boy playing spin the bottle and possibly doing other activities with his toys and possibly some other objects. The kid was actually an adult comedian. I can't for the life of me remember what these were called and can't find them anywhere. I think they were before Youtube. What was the name of the series and where could I find them again?

A Day Without Mexicans

About two weeks ago I was in Chicago and saw a billboard stating something along the lines of "A Day Without Mexicans..." and gave a url of adaywithoutmexicans.com as well as a date for last month (Sept) that this was supposed to happen. I was kinda shocked by this and went to the website but all I get is a godaddy default page. Anyone from Chi-town know what this was about?
