  1. The Pitbull video is so mediocre and pseudo porno that it leads me to believe that their view count is gamed. This is not viral success, it’s a bunch of interns clicking away or something. 20 M more views than Miley Cyrus!?

  2. Chuck, I’d like to point out a video that might be of interest to you since you’re into stories about indie artists:
    Oren Lavie – “Her Morning Elegance”
    Oren is unsigned and unpublished. He’s got over 9 million views of this music video – and he produced it and co-directed it.
    The video was ALSO nominated for a Grammy. Not bad!
