This new ad from UK Telecom Three featuring a moonwalking pony has gone viral in a way most videos can only dream of.
In its first week on YouTube, the moonwalking pony ad has accumulated 1.2 million views on the video sharing site. It's easy to see why. The Internet loves animal videos, dancing videos and I assume they love Fleetwood Mac. Put all these ingredients in a blender along with a Shetland moonwalking pony and you've got viral video gold.
The whole point of the ad campaign is that viral videos and silly stuff on the Internet actually serves a purpose of uniting us all in goofy laughter. To help its viral moonwalking pony meme go even further, UK Telecom Three has launched a site called theponymixer.com that encourages Internet users to come up with their own moonwalking pony videos.
