Ya muchas imágenes, personas y marcas han alcanzado fama mundial a través de memes y videos virales. Bien vale recordar cómo empezó todo. “The Internet Stars Are Viral” (“Las Estrellas de Internet Son Virales”) es un cómico y añejo video en YouTube que recopila los primeros memes y videos virales de Internet, cuando recién comenzábamos a descubrir el fenómeno de la viralidad online. Vale la pena recordar estos casos precursores, ya que los factores de su éxito y difusión no difieren mucho de los que producen viralidad hoy en día.
