Funny Animal Videos Rule the Day on YouTube

Funny animal videos are one of the mainstays of YouTube. Enduringly popular, cute critters acting silly on video will never cease to amaze people and attract positive attention.

Animals create such popular videos that it became a cliche in the entertainment business that you never wanted to follow either an animal or a baby on stage. No matter how funny the next act was, people preferred the cute animals.

So I am not the least bit surprised by how popular silly animal videos are but, one thing that totally surprised me. I expected the most popular to be short and sweet. Nope! Long videos with astronomical views were extremely common.
This one runs a full hour and has 13 million views.

So what does this mean for anyone reading this who wishes to have success on YouTube?

First, do NOT worry about the total length of your video. Worry more about the entertainment value of it. If people are being entertained, they do not care how long the videos is. That said, please keep in mind that it is harder than you think to create a truly entertaining video.

Even just letting your dog or cat come into the shot for some pats is truly likely to make your video more fun for people to watch.

With zillions of videos online, entertainment value often proves to be king. Animals are an easy way to entertain! Always have been and always will be. Very few things in the world of video production have proven to be as enduringly well-loved as funny animal videos.
