New Hipster Currency: YouTube Viewing Counts


I saw this video, of a bombastic Stark County (Ohio) Republican Treasurer Nominee speech, when a friend linked to it on facebook.  At the time, it had a few thousand views and a dozen or so comments (I made one).

It now has 1.3 million views and 9,017 comments.  I think making these sorts of status statements are the digital age equivalent of, “I was into [a band] before they even had a record deal.”
