An estimated 43 million people tuned in to watch the 86th Academy Awards, making it one of the most-viewed shows in recent history and it also shut down Twitter.

It’s amazing how Twitter interacts with real-time events throughout the world.

If you remember, it was a single tweet that broke the news about Seal Team 6 raiding Osama Bin Laden’s compound:

Twitter numbers for the Oscars broke down like this: 5.5 million people sent around 19 million tweets that were viewed by 37 million people, the most famous being Ellen’s selfie tweet that now holds the record for the most retweeted tweet at just over 3 million retweets.

Don’t even get me started on that picture because that jerk-face Bradley Cooper is front and center in it…seriously, what’s that guy’s problem!?

Of course he had to be the one to take it…what a jerk-hole.

Anyway, onto today’s Viral Video of the Day. I admittedly don’t know enough about Ellen DeGeneres, so I could be wrong, but I think she’s a very nice person and seems to be down to earth, or at least that’s how she comes across.

I’ve watched her talk show a time or two and I’m always blown away at how well-produced it is.

I thought she did a great job hosting the Oscars this year and she put together a behind-the-scenes look of the big night, which is shorter and probably better than the actual show itself.

Take a look at “Behind the Scenes at the Oscars” for today’s Viral Video of the Day and if you see Bradley Cooper walking around the streets today, ask him what the hell his problem is for me!

The fun doesn’t stop here! Take a look back at some of Surfer Stephen’s favorite viral videos below:
