Today's viral video ad

From Vancouver to Egypt, from Derby to Tokyo, nearly 50,000 people have watched the Today programme "viral" advert on video-sharing website YouTube.

The viral, a video that is distributed and shared on the internet, was launched by the programme as an experiment to see how far the three-minute advert could travel.

Reaction to the video has been mixed - from "awesome", as David Naylor of Search Marketing puts it, to "terrible and embarrassing", as lennyteeman comments on YouTube.

What do you think?
