WHEN IT COMES TO PRO ATHLETES EMBRACING THE DIGITAL AGE, CHRIS BOSH IS AS VIRAL AS IT GETS

Andy Samberg turns 30 today. Pop quiz: in the last five years, has there been a guy more associated with viral hits? There was "Lazy Sunday," then "D*ck in a Box" and "Iran So Far Away."

Here's a look at some of the best. Side note: we've tried to go viral a few times, like with Dwight Howard, comedians on flopping, Scott Dixon chugging milk, and a few others. So far, we're still waiting for our close-up.
