The Gaston Phenomenon

The things that go viral ....

This went up on YouTube January 2nd. My wife, who is all-knowing and all-seeing regarding Le Internet, pointed the video out to me three days later.

Hardly anybody had looked at it at that point. Only 3.5 million people.

So now here we are on Day 9, and the damn thing has 8,115,693 views. I find this intriguing because there appears to be a whole YouTube subset of Gaston (Disney World version) of which the citizens of the World Wide Web canNOT get enough.

It's gratifying that it's tied (albeit distantly) to one of my favorite animated features, but there is truly no accounting for taste.
