The Viral Lemon Roll

What would you do if you saw a lemon rolling down the street? You'd take out your phone and record it, of course! Mike Sakasegawa did just that, and posted the video yesterday. You'd do that, too. But the rolling lemon has become a star. Viewers became invested in its fate, and kept rooting for the lemon to keep going.  

Just to answer a couple questions that have been asked a bunch: the lemon stopped rolling because we got to the bottom of the hill. The lemon is still intact, in my kitchen, and I don’t know what I’m going to do with it yet.

You know what they say, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade! The video has been seen 4.5 million times in less than 24 hours, and there are about 6K comments, some of them hilarious. Sakasegawa has a podcast about art and literature, yet nothing he's done has been this popular, and he's having a hard time dealing with it. The lemon, at last report, is in his backyard hanging out with an immature lemon tree. -via The Daily Dot
