There isn’t exactly an explanation for what causes a video to go viral, but the following video seems to have some of the most common elements, and there is no doubt that it should have way more views that it currently does.
Cracked recently took to YouTube and pulled out ten comedic videos that are severely underrated, but out of the ten that they found, the Univore music video for their song “Champagne Taste” is easily the greatest.
From what I understand from the lyrics, it’s about a guy in a tuxedo who gets pulled over in downtown Chicago after a few too many glasses of champagne. While he looks at the cherries and berries behind him, he realizes that he “shouldn’t be driving this car.” Oh, and he also has a crack rock stuck in his throat, so there’s that.
On top of the insanely awesome song is the extremely random video which features a Robert De Niro doppelganger drinking a bottomless glass of champagne while lip syncing and dancing similar to the way that Vin Diesel did in his latest thank you video. There are also a lot of cloud shots and a floating hand that appears occasionally to refill the guy’s glass.
According to the description of the video, the song is based on a true story about De Niro’s twin’s friend Giovanni. Apparently Giovanni had never tried champagne or crack cocaine before, and he learned his lesson the hard way. At least he “will be the best-dressed man in prison.”
Be sure to check out the video below. I have a feeling you’ll agree that it deserves more credit that it has been given. The video has been out there for more than three years and it hasn’t even hit 250,000 views yet.
Let’s work on changing that.
