One Pound Fish

Out for 11 days... Already 5 million hits. It is very catchy too... I first heard about it on the radio... Do you think it will do as well as Gangnam? :3

Well let me just say that was not even close to any Gangman Style. And I think Gangman Style is still better.

I must agree... It isn't as good but it is still very catchy. It is kinda Bollywood xD

Gangnam style just recently hit one billion views. There will not be anything like Gangnam style for a very long time.

Apparently the man sells fish for a living, a d he sings this to attract buyers. Quite the business man.

And aside that its a techno beat and is sung by a non-white, I see no relation what so ever to Gangnam Style.

I'd like to know how videos like this get so popular.

Also, stopped the video ~20 seconds in because it was annoying.

Okay, now that Gangnam style has hit 1,000,000,000 views, will it die out?

I know, but how they get all these views in such a short time? Where are they being promoted, and how do people find these videos?

Same. I really did not like the song at all.

I do not really know because I always see them once they have become really popular or are gaining traction. Here is how I think it goes:

1: The random people that have no lives find video on Youtube.

2: Said people like said video and post it to site such as Reddit, Twitter...

3: Other people watch and like video.

4: Said other people show friends who show friends etc.

5: Said video is reposted everywhere and people hear about it on TV and MSN type places.

6: Video is now seen millions of times.

One comment was "now Hot Problems has some competition", I think they were right.
