Another week and another set of brilliant viral videos that has got lots of people talking. Rather than sifting through the billions of videos that people have uploaded, we share the ten best viral videos every week from the world of marketing and advertising. This week's collection features pranks performed by an orchestra, the world's best jump roper and a daredevil stunt that only a maniac would try out.

Prepare To Be Amazed By The World’s Best Jump Roper
