A few weeks ago I told you about Sesame Street's goal of hitting one billion views on YouTube to put them in the same pantheon as the likes of PSY's "Gangnam Style," Lady Gaga, and Justin Bieber. As of Valentine's Day they were about 22 million views shy of their goal, so Telly pleaded for more views, promising a great "Top Secret" video when the goal was reached. Well guess what just happened. Check out this new Sesame Street video with The Count counting to one billion.
one billion views
The world is a better place because of Sesame Street. It's one of the most popular children's television shows of all time. It also has a huge number of YouTube views. As of 1:26 pm today, the Sesame Street YouTube channel had 978,247,378 views, but 978,247,378 million views isn't cool. You know what's cool? A billion views. That's the goal Sesame Street set for itself, and they've released a new video featuring Telly, who is the best, to help spread the word that when they hit one billion views they'll release a "Top Secret" video.
