Twitter competition: The Race to a Million Views.

January 8th, 2010 by Jarmo Puskala

The Iron Sky teaser you see above will reach 1,000,000 views on YouTube during the weekend! If you add the HD version of the teaser, the one on our homepage and other uploads from around the world, the teaser has gotten more than 3 million views! But the main bragging rights are awarded to the one with the biggest number on YouTube, right?

If the number of views stays constant the one million barrier should break sometime during Saturday. However, YouTube only updates the visible views every few hours, so it might take a while to update.

Twitter competition

To celebrate we thought we’d throw a little competition to our Twitter followers. Here’s how it works:

  1. Take a screencap when you see 1,000,000 (or more) views on the YouTube page.
  2. Post the picture to twitpic (etc.) and send the link to @energia.
  3. The first to send us a pic will get an envelope with Iron Sky swag.
  4. ????
  5. Profit!

Edit: If you’re not on Twitter you can send the pic link on Facebook as well. Whichever you prefer.

WIN! Anssi was the first to send us a picture with 1,000,047 views! That was actually faster than I expected! Thank you everyone for playing.

    Fun idea! Not to mention, people sticking to the page and refreshing it wildly to see the number come will increase the number of views drastically… :P

  3. Angela: Didn’t really think about it, just thought we should have more little competitions for our followers.

    Krautboy: Checking it now.

  4. Most likely YouTube only counts one view per IP per day, as most websites do.

  5. Currently there’s 999,134 views on the teaser. Might be that reloads do count, since we’re closing in on the million a bit faster than I expected…
