How on earth does this get you 40,000,000 views?

Well I suppose everyone can relate to it.
As a matter of fact Sittin On Tha Toilet now. Not.

Well, have you ever heard of a website named 4chan.org? Well in the /b/ forum they probably spammed it at some point.

If quantum mechanics hasn't profoundly shocked you, you haven't understood it yet.

If you don't have the time to do it right, when will you have the time to do it over?

Wow that website is full of... Is there a screening process of images before they are published on that website? I know of some truly bad websites but I won't post them. I'm surprised they are still up.

I remember someone once posted pr0n images directly onto this forum. They got deleted pretty quickly.

BTW, regarding your "Snooze -tube" thread:
That video was recorded about an hour's drive out of Melbourne (the populated areas).
The song's name is Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen Sehen ("Do you Want to See the Bed in Flames?"). Not my cup of tea IMO.

There are several questions which come to mind after seeing that video:

-How does it get to 40,000,000 views?
-What kind of idiot actually makes such a recording?
-What is the weight carrying capacity of a normal toilet. Based on this video, it's significant.

And was this seriously the first time you've heard of 4chan? The /b/ forum is basically anything goes.

Seriously! I have never heard of it before. Most of the stuff on that website seems to be pretty tame compared to the crazy shit I've seen on other websites; borderline illegal if you ask me. I don't visit those websites, I just know they exist.

My sister showed me the "Sittin On Tha Toilet" video and I was watching it with a confused face. 40,000,000 views? Seriously? WTF!

Edit:
One of Justin Beiber's songs on YT has 665,928,416 views?
Seriously? WTF!

Gotta figure that the Bieber song as so many views because people just sit there and hit "Play" over and over again. Or set the thing as their home page or something equally as stupid. Not really sure how the view counter works either. I think it increments even when someone doesn't watch it all the way through.

That's what happens. Even on Britney Spears's music videos I read comments of people watching, or at least pushing F5 over and over again to get the view-counts up. I can only imagine what would have happened if YT was around when BS's career started. Billions of views by now. Oops off topic.

I think the view-count increments on page refresh but I have seen counters go backwards so YT probably has countermeasures for view-count spammers. I often see the counter get stuck at 303 and then suddenly jump up to some high value, which I suppose is one of their countermeasures at work. They have to give accurate view-counts because advertisers want accurate numbers. I believe the video channel's owner can actually see the "unique" view-count which is probably just a sum of views from unique IPs.

It does as far as I know, but the channel owner can see where in the video people are leaving, which is quite interesting. The "attention curve" as I call it, starts off at some high value and then drops off as the video continues to play, or as people lose attention/interest. You've got your own channel Aaron, look up video statistics on one of your videos; they provide a lot of interesting and probably useful information.

I don't even know why a person would do that. What does it matter how many views a video gets? Besides, that's just going to show in YouTube Insight that 99% of views only watched the first 10 seconds.

I remember reading a few years ago about how YouTube works in the backend, and it explained the backwards counters. Turns out that the counters are not real time, and depending on which cache server you view from, the count may differ. It's only synced up at set times. According to Insight, the views correspond to a view of the page. Then there is further data available for how long people watched.

YouTube just changed their interface. I don't like it. There doesn't seem to be a way to generate any reports across a series of videos, only individually. That makes it fairly useless other than a curiosity for a person with 60+ videos.

Apparently it's because Britney fans want to get more views than Lady Gaga, like it's some kind of competition. I personally don't give a rat's arse.

Yes it's pretty interesting how their internal machinery works.

Yes not too long ago my Gmail changed in appearance, and now YouTube. I like the new Gmail interface and I'm not fussed about the change. I haven't had enough time to explore YT yet.

They must have a shocking amount of time on their hands. Don't kids have hobbies these days? Though it is amusing that that Britney Spears needs cheap tricks to have more views than Gaga.

Now that Google has changed the AdSense interface, the widget which displays my AdSense data on my desktop doesn't work. The problem is that the author used a regular expression to extract the data, and I just don't know RegEx well enough to modify it. Plus I'm not willing to take the amount of drugs necessary to understand RegEx.

Actually I'm not so sure she does, well at least on YouTube? Both of their careers boomed 10 years apart. Britney's career started 7 years before YouTube, Gaga's Career started 3 years after YouTube. Of course if you tally up how many views Brit's videos have been seen on TV and wherever else, there would probably be no comparison really. I remember hearing Brit's songs and music videos playing in large shopping centers as far back as 13 years ago.

I still remember looking up at a CRT television in a shop and seeing this...

I think I prefer this kind of music over Lady Gaga any day.

Yeah, I know. Gaga and Bieber have the benefit of the existence of social media and YouTube. Gaga at least makes some very good videos. Bieber seems to be a master of taking advantage of YouTube to push his crap. Rather, I bet his publicist is more than anything. At least Gaga could have existed outside of YouTube. We can't say the same about Bieber.

Yes, Gaga's music videos are good, if not at least a bit weird. In comparison I think BS has the most memorable music videos over LG. The red catsuit and catholic school girl uniform just to name a couple. So sec-seeee!

Of course I can't go without plopping some pictures here from her year 2000 VMA performance.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot about JB (by about 9 hours).


What's your name baby?

Ivana... Ivana Humpalot.


Let me ask you a question. And be honest. Do I make you horny, baby? Do I? Do I make you randy? Yeah?
