    What would be the best way to monetize a video that has gone viral assuming it has no relevant affiliate product to promote. A good example would be that man jumping in the frozen pool video that went viral recently.

    Adsense, or maybe products like t-shirts related to video.

    Content locking generally works well for viral videos. Depending on the niche of the video you can do more specific monetization as well.

    For example: for music related videos you can push ringtone offers.

    Adsense i for everything, but the pay is low. The viral video could be a funny video about a celebrity or something stupid that happened and the monetization can be anything from you selling artwork to just using Adsense.

    Yeah, use Adsense (google.com/adsense) it's easy, but money depends of traffic..
