There are many mysteries about the Internet: Who created Bitcoin? Will we ever figure out the secret behind black holes? What’s with the Markovian Parallax Denigrate? One other mystery that no one seems to be able to crack? What makes a video go viral?
Take for example this mashup of Nelly’s “Getting Hot in Here” with The Bee Gee’s Saturday Night Fever classic, “Stayin’ Alive.” The video, appropriately called “Stayin’ Hot,” was created in 2011 by LobsterMashups and while the Internet usually revolves on a steady diet of the latest and greatest, yesterday the mashup sat on Reddit’s front page all day and is still near the top today, even though the video is so three years ago.
If we’re engaging in Internet archaeology, check out this video mashing up the same track from The Bee Gees with AC/DC’s “Back in Black.”
