My minor two cents:

I've often noticed that the best viral videos are not the ones that
are specifically created to be viral, but are instead just plain
videos with something weird. I would suggest just creating copious
amounts of video and tag an ubuntu logo on the end... One of the
videos may evoke something trivial in people's brain and thus make it
viral.
