I'm responsible for 3,986,285 of those billion views.

Seriously though, I hope those kids got royalties from all that.

That's a butt load of revenue. I'd love to have a YouTube channel and upload content that went viral like that, then buy my cabin in the mountains.

Hmm, Dancing Free And Wild With College

Age Folks; In Yes, Free Play At The Largest

Metro Dance Hall For 6 Years, Suddenly Erased

By Covid-19, OH NO! hehe;

Yet that Leaves Store
Dance For Play Anyway,
Social Distancing, Masking
Where Necessary And Appropriate

Anyway too, i Am More Familiar With
A 'Mommy Shark' Version of 'Baby Shark'

From My Wild Dance Hall Days For Sure

Yet What's Really Nice About YouTube

Is it Really in Many Ways Eliminates The

'Middle Men Folks' oF Old Who Ya Had To Travel
Through in Record Deals And the Such as That in Contracts

to Own Your Creativity too; And Now Content Creators May Create

Their Own Plays Of Art in Life to Give; Sharing, Caring, Freely, Even Healing

Along the Way
In Some Ways
of Dopamine

Adrenaline and
Other Juiced Up
Neurochemicals
And Neurohormones

Like 'Mommy Shark' Brings;

However, TOTAL G-Rated 'Baby
Shark' Will Bring Joy to Those

Not Yet So Jaded About

Non-Sensical Songs

And Dances Without

Lessons to Just Let Go Play

And Fly With Wings of A Butterfly

Out of Stanky Boring Cocoons and

Caterpillar Life Just Tripping Up on What
Seems Like a Hundred Feet Never Really Letting

Go in Play

With Wings
So Free, True, Baby Shark

Is Worth 10 Billion Views of Silly
Joy of 'The Child' On YouTube for
Those Who Haven't Lost the Spirit of

'The Child' Within And On the Other

Hand, There is Always 'Mommy Shark'
if That Don't Do the Trick or Treat Hehe...

Really though, in Many Ways, i am More Impressed
With Big Corporations Like Google These Days and

Even Walmart And Target Than Church And State as At Least They Have
Enough Common Sense And Gumption to Protect Their Valuable Commodity

Employees in Peaks of Deadly Pandemics With Mandatory Masking
And Yes Even Raising Minimum Wages And Incentives Rich Enough

Ironically

To Change

Fresh Hell

On Earth of
Scarcity When
Their Valuable
Commodities Rebel Somewhat

And Yes Let's Return to YouTube

For the Options That Did Not Come Before
The Days of YouTube, Where X-Janitors Then
Making Close to Minimum Wage Now As Content
Creators Moving to YouTube Are Making 6 Figures

Inspiring Others to Clean Their Homes Through
Their Artful Presentations of Their Art of Cleaning

Their Homes
Behind a
Camera
to Make Green DOLLAR BILLS;

Yes, Before, Really There Has Never
Been 'A Day In History', Overall, When
Humans Have Been Able to Express Most All
Their Freedoms of Being Human Not Subject

to What Others Feel they Must Conform to,
to Fit in; So True, One May Remain Free to Do this

Or Even Make A Living off Of Their Freedoms of Expression
if they Find a Target Audience Willing to Watch What They Are Doing...

Not As Many

Limits Now

Yet What
Folks

Whine

They Cannot Do

Instead of Will Do Now For Real

For Those With Enough Imagination
And Creativity to Be Successful at it Indeed;

Plus, There Are So Many More Avenues that Information
Technology Brings We Never Had Advantage of Before Bill

Gates,

Steve

Jobs,
And All
The Others

Sprouted Out

of Home Garages

For the 'REVENGE OF THE NERDS'

HAHA FOR REAL; Clue, Use the
Tool and Don't Get too Mastered

By it Now to Lose 'The Child' Within
With Eyes of Wonder And Amazement
Continuing to Co-Create This Gift of Life in FREE PLAY NOW!..:)

Well, I finally clicked on the video. I now have zero hope that humanity will survive more than a couple of decades.

Holy s**t on a saltine!

We've been so systematically dumbed down that our brains have turned to mush if this is what entertains us.

I'm off to spend the rest of my Sunday reading some good literature to cleanse my pallet.

Ever read Amusing Ourselves to Death? It was written in the 80s, but reads like something from yesterday, you'd probably find it both interesting and terrifying if you haven't already read it.

Yes! I've read that book two times. Neil Postman. He does a good job of connecting Aldous Huxley's dystopian vision in 'Brave New World' to his commentary. I highly recommend that to anyone.

HAha, Heaven Forbid
Or Better Put Hell

From Anyone

Experiencing

Joy Now For No
Reason at All As
Typically Science
Shows Humans Become
More Human With Empathy
For Other Humans, Moving,
Connecting And Co-Creating this Way

In Dance And Song; What Is Salient of the Occasion, is If one
Is Even Capable of Feeling Joy For No Damn Reason Yet Joy...

'Typically,' 'Ear Worms' Activate the Motor Cortex Part of Our
Brain Generating Motor Planning And the Imaginative Feeling

Of the Joy even when One is Away from 'the Actual Dance And Song'...

'These Days,'

IF Ya Can And Will,
Ya'll Find the Research
For the Why's in Almost
Every Area of Life If We take
The Time And Effort More than

Our Own Personal Speculations as to 'Why'....

And In this Case, it is the Experience of Joy That Makes
the Difference; Yes, the Experience of Being Human for

No Reason

Yet Joy...

If Ya Can't
FeeL it, Obviously,
It's Worthless For those Who DO NOT;

10 BiLLioN Views Suggests The Child
Within isn't Dead 'Quiet' yet With 'The Condition'...

So Sure, Go 'Baby Shark' For Those Who Get the Joy...

i Really Feel 'Bad' For Anyone Who Doesn't Smile
at Least Once Watching the Joy of The Children in

Simple Play...

Not Everyone
Gets it, or Still Gets It,
And That's the 'Condition' too...

Wouldn't Have Done Anything
For me Either, When i Didn't Wire myself this way...

For me at Least; It's The Difference Between Living
And Living Dead,

Period;

Yet It's True,
i Naturally Enjoy
The Version of 'Mommy Shark'
More as Typically i'm Wired That Way More too...

i Like Variety Though, Sticking to One Song, Not my Flavors of Life...

Postman predicted the rise of social media and the dumbing down of the population in his book "Amusing Ourselves to Death" in 1985. Well before the internet.

That IS an interesting reinterpretation of it. Makes it sound dark and ominous. Likes its the end of the world!
