Today, November 21, 2011, is the first time that I’ve ever seen this video.
Youtuber Akaczynski1 uploaded it to youtube on 11.16.2011 and in the relatively short period of time since then (five days now) the video had garnered more than 385,100 views.
However, it appears that the video was first uploaded to youtube almost three years ago (2 years and 8 months ago today) on March 21, 2009 by youtuber rolochoshu. The title of the video is Barack Obama in a Black History Minute from 1991. In the two years and eight months that the video has been on youtube it has received more than 82,400 views.
UPDATE #1: A mere 12 hours after publishing this blog report the video embedded above (Akaczynski1’s upload) has went from around 385,100 views to more than 944,800 views. More than half a million additional views in the span of 12 hours.
Rolochoshu’s upload has also climbed from around 82,400 views to more than 84,400 views in the same time span. Approximately 2,000 additional views.
UPDATE #2: Akaczynski1’s upload has now went from around 944,800 views to well over one million views (approximately 1,042,400 views). This amounts to more than 97,000 additional views in the span of 6 hours.
Rolochoshu’s upload has also now climbed (barely) from around 84,400 views to nearly 84,600 views in the same time span. Approximately 200 additional views in the span of 6 hours.
