Making Your Pet Famous Through Social Media
Some pets are extremely famous on social networking websites. Whenever you use social media to share videos of your pet(s), your friends may share the video with friends of theirs. In some cases, the people who your friends share it with will share the video themselves. This can lead to it going viral.
If you stream your video through certain platforms, it is possible to get paid if the video gets enough views. If your pet becomes famous, this also can bring subscribers to your video streaming accounts. You may get paid for this depending on where you stream the video of your pet.
While the paparazzi aren’t likely to try to hide in the bushes to get pictures of your pet, people on social media and video streaming platforms may begin to pay more attention to what you do on there. If your pet becomes especially famous, this fame may follow you to other parts of the internet as well. To a lesser extent, it could cause you to become somewhat well known in real life.
How Can Your Pet Become Famous On Social Media?
Pick The Right Moment
When you see your cat or dog doing whatever it is that you’re looking to film them doing, it is essential to have the camera immediately handy. The action often will only last a very short period of time, and it can be difficult to get to your camera in time to film it. If you are considering making a funny video of your pet, it’s a good idea to keep a camera in your pocket whenever you’re with them.
Costumes Can Add A Funnier Touch To The Video If Your Pet Will Be Able To Wear Them
Many videos of cats and dogs online involve them wearing a costume of some kind. However, not all pets will allow you to put a costume on them. You shouldn’t try to force your pet to wear something that he or she doesn’t want to.
If you use a costume, it’s sometimes a good idea to use one that has something to do with a popular movie or television show. One example of this would be videos of cats wearing Minions costumes.
Cats and Dogs Doing Unexpected Things Can make For A Great Video
Some examples of something unexpected would be a cat who enjoys water rather than trying to avoid it, a dog that is frightened of something extremely innocuous, or a cat showing an interest in the television or computer. In order to determine what would be good to film, consider what your pet does that is unique and unusual.
Kittens and Puppies Tend To Be Exceptionally Funny
Kittens and puppies are universally seen as cute, and they often do amusing things that they grow out of with age. Therefore, it is often best to take videos of your cat or dog while he or she is still young.
This is especially true if they seem to have an especially curious disposition. Sometimes, the curious, youthful disposition that lends itself to funny videos will fade with time.
Consider A Video Editor
Do you have an exceptionally ordinary cat or dog that doesn’t do anything particularly unusual? It might still be possible to make a viral cat or dog video. There are many video editors that allow you to superimpose amusing things into a video of your pet. One example of such a video is the edited classic Toonces The Driving Cat, which appeared on Saturday Night Live.
Create A Scenario
There are ways that you can get a cat or dog to do something amusing even if they don’t ordinarily. Therefore, it can be a good idea to present your pet with a certain object or situation that they’re likely to react to in an amusing way.
It can be very funny to videotape a pet reacting to something on TV. However, you might not know what programs your cat or dog is likely to react to. Therefore, it’s a good idea to put different programs on while your cat or dog is around to see if there are any that they seem to have an amusing reaction to.
More Than One Pet Leads To More Than Double The Opportunity For Videos
While having more than one pet increases the odds of a potentially funny pet video due to simple probability, multiple pets together has a way of leading to funny interactions. This is particularly true if you have a cat and a dog living together.
