Extreme unicycling vid gets extreme level of YouTube views

Off-road unicycling is cool and getting cooler.

Chateau Productions of Manchester placed the following video on YouTube on 14th April. To date it’s had 207,984 views, has been commented upon 903 times, favourited 350 times and this exposure is set to increase as the film – shot for the Keswick mountain film festival – has been chosen as a YouTube featured video, and is appearing high on the YouTube home page.

And, just to show that YouTube views can be a fickle commodity, a lower-res version of the same video was posted seven months ago and has had only 11,795 views to date. Why has one version gone sky high? The latest video is Chateau Production’s biggest success on YouTube by far. I’ll be asking why they think this particular vid has gone through the roof.
