      As a student, I am interested in digital marketing. I have noticed the examples you have shown before. and i also believe that the main aspect of any content to become viral is creativity. in the examples you have told, i have heard the song kolaveri di. the creative aspect was what attracted me. I know many Digital Marketing Agencies in Singapore, where I live. They are researching on this topic, so those can be implemented as a digital marketing strategy.
