TelevisionWeek is trawling video-sharing Web sites to find the hottest clips spreading on the Internet.
The setup: Viral video really should be the forum to teach our children about off-color language. After all, you want to kick the monster’s butt, not his ass, children. That’s the message the giggling mom seeks to impart to her 3-year-old daughter at the end of this clip. Interestingly, videos of young children rarely rocket up the charts on viral Web sites. But this one made the rounds and ticked high last week, because — well, it’s just funny to hear a kid say she’ll kick a “monster’s ass.” Er, butt.
The source: Various users submitted the video to viral video sites last week.
The hits: By March 19, the video had generated 1.3 million views on Break.com, and a few thousand on YouTube.
