This is an example of a mystery viral video -- one that has almost 15 million views but no one can guess why.
This is an example of a mystery viral video -- one that has almost 15 million views but no one can guess why. It's simply footage of a young Indian woman in an internet cafe sitting at a workstation and then getting up and walking away. The entire video is shot through a green filter that makes it difficult to see clearly and it's not entirely clear what the purpose is.

Even the title of the video ("Girl in internet cafe") isn't particularly titillating, and yet, almost 15 million views-- who? How? Why?
