Three Random Guys Singing Outside a Store has 2MM Views Already?

video

Call me a cynic here but come on.  Why in the world would this video get over 2MM views during the weekend?  Is there some kind of Youtube conspiracy going on?  Sure.  I get it.  It’s “unity” and harmonizing at its finest.  It’s complete strangers getting along and making beautiful art together right?

I guess.  But I’d way rather see a video of some 6 year old shredding the guitar or a baseball player tripping into second base.  And here’s the description by the Youtube user who posted this.  “‘I was walking to kroger and saw this guy playing a song. It sounded good so I decided to record it. By the end of the song three guys started jamming. This truly is music in its simplest form. It really reminds of the Austin days. Enjoy.”

Correct me if I’m wrong here but this truly just sounds like hippie stuff to me.  Honestly I don’t know how else to describe it.  But at least this video proves yet another thing to me.  There’s absolutely zero criteria for determining or understanding why a video will ever go viral.
