Susan Boyle video stats

The Susan Boyle video (the frumpy looking contestant on Britain's Got Talent whose video has been an internet sensation) has exploded in views this week on YouTube.

I saw the video Tuesday. It had just over two million views. As of right now (April 18, 2009 at 3:35 a.m.) is just over 25 million views. That's crazy!

If you are wondering (as was I) what the most viewed video on YouTube has for views: 118.5 million. That's the video for the song "Girlfriend" from Avril Lavigne. Which is roughly the equivelent of poking an eye out with a spinning drill bit.

It's a fascinating time we live in.
