Oh man… i hate to be the one to break it to you, but you’re eating ___________.

Want to fill in the blank? Have a look at the:
11 Disgusting Ingredients You Eat Every Day That Food Companies Don’t Talk About

Need an appetizer? Quoth Business Insider:

“Starbucks’ use of crushed beetles in food coloring for its frappuccino products—which it had labeled vegan—is merely the tip of the iceberg.

The cochineal beetle, often used in red food dyes, is one of many disgusting ingredients found in everyday foods.

Food companies might advertise natural flavors, low calories and vitamins A through Z, but they’re much less likely to promote their use of  fish bladders, sand or human hair.

And you won’t believe what beaver anal glands—that’s correct—are used for.”

ANNddddd….to name a few:

Ground up Beetles,

Beaver Anal Glands,

Fish Bladders,

Sand,

Animal Connective Tissue,

Sheep Secretions,

Sawdust,

Duck Feathers and Human Hair,

Maggots,

Cleaning Agents,

Rat Hairs, etc.

by on Jun.13, 2012, under Internet, Music, Pop Culture

Another reason why the proliferation of cellphone cameras and internal storage has basically exploded viral marketing trends — where-ever you are, no matter what time of the night, even if you have no specialized equipment but your iphone, we can still share something as captivating as a gas-station-impromptu-dance. This particular one — THE WOP.

Exhibit A: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WOP_(disambiguation) (the song)

Exhibit B: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wop (the one we shouldn’t say aloud)

AdAge’s Viral Video Tracking

by on Jul.06, 2009, under Internet

screenshot04

Advertising Age video talks about the powers of online viral video tracking systems to help reveal the top contenders when it comes to viral video exposure.

Yes, but what about viral images, emails and even videos that are sent via email (rather than YouTube or Daily Motion links)? This video does nothing to address where we believe MOST viral action takes place (in the inbox).

Regardless, enjoy.

Iran’s “Neda”, an Internet Icon

by on Jun.21, 2009, under Current Affairs

Millions have been moved by the so-called Neda video that went viral shortly after it was uploaded onto the internet, Saturday. People around the world have been moved by the images coming out of Iran that show the suppressive violence being used against the reformist protesters and the seemingly peaceful demonstrations in which they are involved.

In this video, Neda Agha Soltan is seen lying on the ground after being shot in the chest. Her music teacher and bystanders rush to help her as blood gushes from her mouth and nose. Within moments, she is dead.

And while it may seem in poor taste to post this video on v1r4l, our mission is to track and acknowledge v1r4l web trends regardless of content and politics. Please note, dear viewers, that this video includes graphic content and you should watch it at your own discretion.
