    It is very unlikely, but it certainly has happened.

    Example: YouTuber GradeAUnderA went viral after someone randomly stumbled across one of his videos and posted it to Reddit. He now makes a living off of YouTube.

    I think it can, but I think it really depends if someone stumbles upon a video that is 2-3 years old and if they start sharing it on social media (reddit, facebook). I think reddit is a big one, undiscovered videos often get shared and go viral.

    Very unlikely with how many people have internet access these days, but sure.

    I was thinking about this too . 3 years on viral views then it will be dropped because everyone saw it . No one can make a living of one youtube video .

    I call bullshit.

    PLENTY of videos go viral after months or years.

    It happens all the time. It has happened to my own videos, and I've seen it on others. They start gaining traction and like the saying goes "the rich get richer" and it starts getting more Suggested views.

    As you can see, this one took off after about 3 weeks, all organic. http://prntscr.com/ag3md4

    Yes it can. It is rare, but still happens. For example if somebody famous share some old not popular video, everybody start to share and to watch it.

    Yes they can, and contrary to what many here say it happens all the time. Chances are, if you have a million subscribers and post a video, if its going to go viral it will happen almost instantly. However, if you have an unknown youtube account with very few subscribers, your video could easily take years to be discovered by the right people. It all depends on the type of channel you have.

    It happened to the Prancercise lady. Her video went viral some months after posting it, I believe.

    Yes it still happens

    even more frequently than one can think. But the video has to contain something cute. This barely happens to low quality videos.
