Do you remember the first viral post or video you saw? I’m talking about in your entire life.
A Twitter user posed that question to her online friends, and the replies came rolling in.
What is the first viral video or post or photo that you remember?

But wait! There’s more!
It has to be the Star Wars kid video and it’s crazy to think about because this was in the early days of the internet and pre-YouTube. I mean, it was first shown to me on a CD-ROM!! But somehow it was still a massive viral sensation. https://t.co/hLqRT53dHi

Here’s that video, in case you want to revisit it.
What a trip down memory lane! I’m surprised no one mentioned “The End of the World”.
