Viral ‘Messiah’

I’d like to think I had something to do with this, because when I first linked to it, there were only 11 hits. I’d read about the event in the paper and was waiting for the official video to appear (in the meantime, I posted a couple of the bystander videos – this one has much better audio), and as soon as it was up, I posted it here, and on Facebook, and pushed it on Twitter. Then I put it up on C&L, which gets 150,000 or so viewers a day. I’m sure that each of those viewers sent it to someone else, too.

Now over 5 million people have seen it, so apparently a lot of other people liked it as much as I did. Hallelujah!

  1. Like the proverbial butterfly who flapped its wings and caused a hurricane on the other side of the world, who can know what effects spreading this moment of joy has had?

  2. I didn’t mean that it could set something off as potentially terrrible as a hurricane, instead, something as potentially powerful but good.

  3. Isn’t there something a bit ironic about people singing praise to Jesus while shopping in a department store?

    I’m not sure he’d appreciate it.

  4. It’s delicious irony, and I bet he’ll accept anything done with joy of living and giving. As would any being who appreciates the Golden Rule.
