Moonwalking Pony: Video Ad Goes Viral, Knocking Off Harlem Shake for a Day

By    |   Monday, 04 Mar 2013 03:51 PM

A moonwalking pony has surpassed the Harlem Shakers as the most-shared video on YouTube Monday, with more than 180,000 shares.

The clip, actually an advertisement for the U.K. mobile network Three, was created by Wieden + Kennedy of Old Spice commercial fame and debuted online Friday. It features a pony moonwalking to the Fleetwood Mac song "Everywhere" with the tagline, "Keep on internetting."

The ad exceeded 1 million YouTube views in its first weekend, and on Monday beat out two versions of the popular Harlem Shake videos for most shared video of the day.



Twitter users are loving the dancing horse and have followed through with the commercial's on-screen hash tag suggestion, #DancePonyDance. Second Sync, a company that analyzes Twitter mentions, said the video generated 14,000 tweets within five hours of its premiere.
