What's more popular than Obama's Inauguration speech on Youtube?

So you think that Obama's inauguration speech seen by millions around the world would have the one of the highest number of hits on YouTube....well no. I was looking through YouTube trying to figure out what people like to watch and found this series of video by a girl called Natalie from Sidney, Australia. This video of hers has triple the number of views of Obama's inauguration speech:



I really don't get it.... some of you do?!...please explain. Maybe it was slightly more entertaining that a channel 8 Mediacorp series. But 12,000,000 hits? Really goes to show how hard it is to predict what people will like.

Id there something wrong with the Youtube counter. This is the first time I looked at her and it would be the last.

Tan, Natalie was one of the pioneers of 'Youtube celebrity', and has since become a YouTube (business) partner. Her videos are guaranteed a few thousand hits due to the number of subscribers who will automatically get her videos when they log in. Plus viral marketing... its her blog... her fans... hope this helps (love your blog, keep it up)

Maybe she will flip her top higher?

That would probably be the most logival explanation of why PAP,which is expert in wayang,stays in power for so long and is set to stay even longer-in my humble view.

But not if there is one Singapore Obama though!Where is he,I am sure PAP is looking eagerly for him and set to co-opt him in to enjoy the good life.

Cheers and happy weekend to all.
