maybe, and this is just a hunch here. Maybe because eleven million people actually watched it?

The preview image is pretty effective. I’m sure that alone was enough to make people click on the link.

One of the most hotly debated factors of Youtube views is that every view counts, even if the person stops watching after only a few seconds.

If Youtube provided stats on how much of the video people have watched, that would be a real game changer. But I guess that’s where the rating system comes in. This video has 2 stars. Despite the fact that 11 million people were baited with the interesting preview image, most people think the video sucks.
