Reddit: Unreel's Crystal Ball

Our Reddit Reel peers into the Internet's future, introducing you to top videos before they go viral:

Our mission at Unreel is to bring viewers the most entertaining Internet videos, as they begin to trend with the most talked about moments tagged.  That would not be possible without integrating Reddit into our secret sauce for surfacing the moments that matter in videos.  To do so we send our brave AI bot Bumble Bee out into the Internet abyss to crawl engagement data in order to determine which video moments are worthy of Unreel. Bumble Bee needs direction though, and we are excited to announce that we have pointed him toward Reddit with already awesome results.  

Is Reddit really all that?

Reddit is the self-proclaimed “front page of the internet,” and it is hard to refute that. Reddit’s community consistently is at the forefront of finding the news and stories that end up becoming popular on the rest of the web.  Many a shower thought has concluded that being on Reddit is the equivalent to having a crystal ball revealing the internet’s future. Of no type of content is that truer for than viral videos. Often Reddit is the birthplace for the videos that go on to light up the whole web.  
Identifying viral videos early on is only part of the value Reddit serves Unreel.  Videos on Reddit receive a barrage of comments from Redditors armed with their own unique perspective and wit.  These comments, often about scenes, are both entertaining and incredibly informative as to the content and value of specific moments in the video.  Using data collected from Reddit comments, Bumble Bee is able to identify and tag the moments in each video that truly matter. 

Reddit on Unreel:

Our Reddit Reel is the best way to discover which videos are popular on Reddit, while still engaging with the community, by reading their tagged comments about moments.  We give you your crystal ball for Internet videos — what you do with it is up to you.  Be the first to share with your friends videos destined for greatness, or play the hipster card and remind everyone you were watching that viral video before it went main stream.  Whatever you do, we guarantee you will have a good time.
