Google makes it a double in the US Viral Video chart this week

Google is king of the AdAge viral video chart in the US this week, taking over the No. 1 spot from Rovio's "Angry Birds Space."

In the top spot, Google's "Project Glass" imagines a day in the life of an average guy whose glasses respond to the world around him and perform all the functions of a smartphone at a glance.

It got just under 10 million views this week, according to Visible Measures data.

Google's "Gmail Tap," an April Fool spot that premiered last week with 2.4 million views, landed in the No. 4 spot.

The video explores an approach to typing emails on a touch screen using 150-year-old Morse code's dots and dashes to input text. And, yes, it IS a joke.

The best will be honoured next week at the annual Viral Video Awards -- the first night of the Digital Conference in New York.
