When you see these headlines on Stuff you know they’ve reached peak low-quality (peak/low?). It almost looks like their daily meetings go like “Hey we don’t have stories for today, is that ok if I post a video plucked from YouTube with a ‘[something] goes viral’ in the headline?”

  • The true story behind the love video that went viral
  • Dancing cop video goes viral
  • Video of selfie-obsessed girl goes viral
  • Highway wee video goes viral
  • Video of Thai leader 'petting' reporter goes viral
  • Patrick Gower's 'thug life' goes viral

  • Taupo policeman's dance duel goes viral
  • Woman's 'leggings ain't pants' video goes viral
  • Madcap machine work goes viral
  • Hip-hop artist's video goes viral
  • Teen's virtual duet with Jessie J goes viral
  • Boy's cardboard arcade goes viral
  • Amazing Games defensive display goes viral
  • Gone viral: Bouquet toss fail
  • Fear of flying? Don't watch this video
  • Dog bites shark and goes viral
  • Saudi 'no woman, no drive' parody goes viral
  • Work-from-home mum's take on YouTube viral

  • Helmet-cam cycle incident goes viral
