This has more to do with my desire to learn more about youtube than anything else.
Recently, I tried the recipe for "go viral" with the greenhouseRMH video. I left out the steps where it is supposed to be short (15 seconds) and provacative (like cleavage and the phrase "she's gonna ...."). I just felt that was silly and beyond my comfort zone.
So rather than 100,000 views, the video got about 2500.
So, I was sifting through my clips and came across this one with ernie flashing his ernie shirt. And then the idea for the experiment hit me.
