Viral Video Showdown underscores how, like television and film, creating and producing quality Internet content requires talent, money, skill, and time. It also showcases the process by which this content gets made, beginning from brainstorming sessions to coming up with a good story idea to inserting last-minute special effects with the use of computer software to create a visual masterpiece.

Teens interested in what goes into creating film, TV, and online content will definitely be drawn to what is being done here. Some may even be inspired to begin creating their own videos, especially when they see some of the familiar home computer equipment being used to do the work. Overall, the show demonstrates that the Internet may be a wild place, but it has the potential to feature some smart and creative work, too.
