Dance pony, dance! A dancing shetland pony uses the number one rule of viral videos [VIDEO]


It seems not a week goes by without another video becoming a viral sensation.

This week it’s a shetland pony dancing to the Fleetwood Mac song ‘Everywhere’. In less than a week it’s coming up to two million views on YouTube.

It helps that the shetland pony in question has a mane that would give Stevie Nicks’ hair a run for it’s money. And boy, does that pony know how to do ‘the flick’ with its mane.

What’s the number one rule of viral videos that U.K. telecommunications company 3 followed with this video?

Beyond it just being fun, well executed and slightly wacky, the ad was made ease to copy.

There is now a mixer version to help fans create their own version of the dancing pony.
