Some people call it the most annoying song in history, with lyrics written by a 6 year old. Say what you will, but the Rebecca Black – Friday video is about to reach 40 Million views on YouTube. There’s no denying that this is a runaway success for all the wrong reasons. Add to the view count more than 283,000 comments and you get a sense of just how insane this video has become, all in 13 days.
In comparison, the most viewed video of All Time on YouTube is Aerosmith – I don’t want to miss a thing video clip with 75,872,782 views. The difference is those 35 million extra views have taken 4 years to achieve. Thanks to YouTube’s advertisement program, the creators of the video should be filling a few piggy banks with the proceeds.
Even parody videos are reaching great success with this (probably the best) metal version has more than 1.2 million views.
