   "Vídeos de lindos gatos, bebés riéndose, chicas calientes haciendo casi cualquier cosa y, por supuesto, información educativa sobre anacardos, de modo que los padres dejen al niño ver el vídeo".

   Esta es la receta del famoso youtuber Tobuscus, que ha hecho una canción en la que explica con dibujos animados las características que tiene que contener una melodía para que se convierta en viral y alcance millones de visitas.

"Gatos, gatos, bebés riendo,
gente cayéndose, chicas calientes,
cachorros durmiendo, bebés bailando,
gatitos, monos y más chicas calientes",
reza una de las estrofas.

A los que añade estos consejos: busca un tema del que se hable en las redes sociales y escribe un estribillo pegadizo que sea fácil de repetir. Como verás, no hace falta que la letra sea muy elaborada: el irónico estribillo de 'Viral song' dice: "¿Sabías que el anacardo viene de una fruta?".

Ni que decir tiene que el vídeo de Toboscus se ha convertido en viral...

Aquí tienes la letra de la canción completa:

Look at little Tim Tim,
Tryin' to write a viral song.
He looks a little lost.
Guess I could help him along.

What you got, Tim Tim?
Aaahh! My door!
Never mind that, Tim,
I've come to help, you won't regret it.

Just follow the recipe,
And gather the ingredients.
Pick a topic people
Talk about on social media.

Don't violate the terms of service,
Or your vid will be deleted.
Also, make a catchy chorus.
Something that can be repeated:

Cats, cats, laughing babies,
People falling, hot hot ladies,
Sleepy puppies, dancing babies,
Kittens, monkeys, more hot ladies.

Put a lot of words in one verse.
Careful to enunciate it.
Sing multiple layers,
It helps if you animate it.

What do you mean? Animate it?
Um, what do you mean, "What do I mean?"
You said animated, what do you mean by that?
(No, No, No) (I don't think I said that at all.)
Yeah, I think you definitely said that.
No, I think I'd remember if I said that, for sure, definitely.
Well what'd you say?
Well I think it was probably something along the lines of, uh...

Cats, cats, laughing babies,
People falling, hot hot ladies,
Sleepy puppies, dancing babies,
Kittens, monkeys, more hot ladies.

Put a lot of words in one verse
Careful to enunciate ((Slurred)) it.
Say something educational
So parents let their kids play-it.

Did you know that cashews come from a fruit? (What?)
D-D-D Did you know that cashews come from a fruit (How?)
Ca-Ca-Ca Cashews, cashews, fru-fru-fru fruit! (What?!)
D-D-D Did you know that? (No...)

Did you know that cashews come from a fruit? (What?)
D-D-D Did you know that cashews come from a fruit (How?)
[Ha!] Ca-Ca-Ca Cashews, cashews, fru-fru-fru fruit! (What?)
D-D-D Did you know that? (I, I said no, I said no...no....)

It's ok, Tim, nobody blames you.
Most people don't know the truth about the cashew.
But now you do so next time you go to the playground,
Have everybody gather around and
Tell them what your good friend Tobuscus has taught you....
TELL EM'!

Did you know that cashews come from a fruit? (That's right)
D-D-D Did you know that cashews come from a fruit?
Ca-Ca-Ca Cashews, cashews, fru-fru-fru fruit!?
D-D-D Did you know that? Noooooo!

SING IT!
Cashews, cashews! Come from a fruit!
AGAIN!
Cashews, cashews! Come from a fruit!
LOUDER!
Cashews, cashews! Come from a fruit!
D-D-D Did you know that? NO!

Ok now, get this stuff out of my parent's house!
No, Tim, you're the one that asked for my help.
I didn't ask you for...(Shhh, you don't have to thank me, Tim Tim.)
Alright, I'm gonna get out of here, I'm gonna upload this to iTunes.
But I thought this was MY viral song!
You thought this was gonna be... Noooo, it's not gonna be viral;
It's a terrible song, I'm telling you to do it yourself,
And that's why I charged you 500 dollars.
We didn't agree on 500 dollars!
AAhhh, your voice is so annoying man, its so annoying.
