Since the original “10 Hours of Walking” video — “10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman” created by anti harassment organization Hollaback! — went unspeakably, unimaginably, monstrously viral with over 36 million hits on YouTube as of this writing, there were bound to be copycats.
And there were. Many, many copycats.
From “3 hours of walking in Mumbai” to New Zealand — From walking as an attractive male model to walking as a homosexual. From walking as Batman to…you get the point.
And yes, these viral video copycats got increasingly sillier and sillier, but at least the protagonists were all humans.
That’s not the case with the latest entry in the “10 Hours of Walking” catalogue. This one is all machine, baby.
And surprisingly enough, it’s pretty entertaining. The concept is decent enough because the Lamborghini does in fact get “catcalled.” There’s plenty of hooligans checking out the Lambo’s sweet bod and curves.
Hooligans such as this guy:
Who knows what’s going on there.
What did people think about the Lambo video on Twitter? It was mostly thumbs up…

With some humor thrown in as well:
There is an interesting observation to note when it comes to discussing all of these viral video copycats — and that’s how in spite of it seeming like a played out concept from the second or third or fourth imitator, these videos continue to be shared and discussed on social media.
The “10 Hours Walking as a Lamborghini” video has more than 100,000 views on YouTube. The Batman version has almost 300,000. Model Pranksters’ “10 Hours Walking as an Attractive Guy” has close to 500,000 views on YouTube.
It’s an interesting case study on the potential longevity of even not very original content on social networks.
