Around the World: My BlackBerry is Not Working

December 28, 2010

Normally we use this "Around the World" series to highlight videos that are going viral in different parts of the world, but today when browsing the YouTube Trends Dashboard we noticed something interesting: the following video, a sketch from the BBC, was the single most shared video in many countries (Netherlands, South Africa, and New Zealand, as well as top 5 most shared in India and Australia).

Often this "one video fits all countries" occurs when there's a new Bieber or Gaga music video, but two old guys in a shop making jokes about fruit / smartphones? That doesn't happen every day. Most interestingly, this video wasn't featured at all on the top 10 most shared in the US, so it's a truly 'international' hit.
