The title pretty much says it all. Judge for yourself?



I confess I have a Melodica video too but why does mine have only 154 views?

This is hardly the first time I've been surprised by &$%@ videos on YouTube that have over 10,000,000 views. Feel free to submit you own videos that don't deserve 10 views, let alone 10 million.

The question for the poll is that posed in the title.

I think the answer is obvious. You didn't make yours awful enough. People don't care about mediocre crap, they want steaming piles of crap 1 mile high if possible.

I'm not saying yours is bad, but you have to be exceptionally bad or good to get noticed. First probably helps too.

also stealing film footage from a well-known movie probably helps.

Your link doesn't work, maybe that's the reason.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Weird stuff gets views. I watch a dead mall series. Yesterday there was a meetup and the guy streamed us just sitting in what he called the deadest mall there is. Within minutes we had a couple dozen people watching it, him just sitting at the empty food court.

This one was just so deliberately awful. And that cut from the real soundtrack to his melodica score was just too contrived. I only appreciate bad videos or movies if they were actually trying to be good, like Plan 9 from Outer Space. Or the video of that kid playing with a toy light saber.

Since you show a picture of an Asian girl, I'll say that homeless Korean kid on Korea's Got Tallent.

Does it involve someone getting kicked in the nuts? That would be my guess.
