The Most Viral Irish Video Ever?



James Corballis writes:

This day last week I hurriedly posted a video of my cat to YouTube in order to share with my friends on Facebook.
I went out to work that afternoon and my phone never stopped buzzing with emails all night. It was only then that I realised it had gone viral.
A week later, I now have a theory that this could be the most viral Irish video ever…. (as in fastest growing, not most views). The closest I can come up with is The Rubberbandits’ Horse Outside video which received 530,000 views in 72 hours…. In 72 hours, my video received 1,018,445.
It is currently getting over 10,000 views an hour.
At the time of writing the view count is 1,949,000. I’m still in shock. I’m sure there might be others though that I’ve overlooked?

    Which is why I will never ever have a Slavebook account.

    And what does it say about someone who is prepared to destroy a vinyl and possibly a nice turntable for a some needy hits on Youtube.

      Give him a break. You’d be pretty excited if a video you posted to youtube got that many hits in one day too.

      Why do you feel the need to bitch about it?

  4. Tickle

    What is the monetary value of something like that?

    I have a set of technics (SL 1210s for the puritans among us) and two kittens.
    Also a tube of super glue.

    I retract my offer. It appears that their are literally 15 cats ( on page 1 ) of a YouTube search for cat Djs. Your cat is so big deal.

    Really doesn’t take a whole lot to entertain the masses! Between Gangham, call me maybe and Cats doing ANYTHING…you have to wonder
