  1. 60,000 Views

    Not as many as Exploding Silver's 2 million views, but 60,000 views on the [TG] 1stMIP YouTube channel in three months ain't bad.

    The 95 comments are what I like the most. The feedback ranges from intelligent and helpful to childish and hateful (to say nothing of homophobic).
