Help me reach 1,000,000!!

1,000,000 what, you ask? 1,000,000 YouTube hits!!

If there is one thing I have learned from experimenting with YouTube, and media in general, is that it is hard to get and hold people’s attention. There are certain types of videos that get tons of hits because they include famous people or properties or are videos wherein the makers are using footage or props of famous people and properties (I assume, without permission). There are those that are just plain amusing (such as Indian Thriller) and there are those that are just short and sweet so they are easy to watch since they take no time investment. Everything else that gets a lot of hits seems to be something incredibly interesting that people feel compelled to pass the links around or so incredibly stupid that they feel the same compulsion. There is also a certain luck factor with everything, but that goes without saying unless I say it then it goes with saying. Lost your attention yet?

So I have a short film that falls under ‘short and sweet’ and ‘incredibly stupid’. Add some luck and I have my 1,000,000 YouTube hits. I present to you...

CHAO CHAO BAO!! Or as it is known in English...
STINKY STINK BUN!!

This film is the best example to showcase my total disinterest in reading manuals when I get a new toy. I bought some animation software, a while back, and installed it. Rather than even read the “Quick Start Guide”, I just began to draw, using the track pad on my laptop, and the end result was this film. When I outputted the video, my thought was that this is stupid. I emailed it to a friend and his reply was, “One million YouTube hits, for sure!!”

So please help a brother reach his goal of

1,000,000 YouTube hits!!

Email the link to all the family, friends, colleagues, enemies and total strangers you know or even don’t know. This is a quest! Or think of it this way: We’re on a mission from God!

You can watch CHAO CHAO BAO HERE in the Films section or at this YouTube link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRCbfK_Lz5g
Together, we can make a difference!
