We’re still struggling to accept the fact that the year is finally coming to an end; or maybe, it’s just me every time. Anyway, the year has seen a lot of things and mainstream social media stands witness to this. Online visual content has seen a rise in 2016 and has given more content presentation styles to digital media marketing. Observing an evident rise in entertainment, especially humour genre, Bayside Journal brings to you a list of 16 YouTube videos that went viral for various reasons:
