    ... in my opinion the video is nothing special:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7N5OhNplEd4

    Everybody could do this paying 5 or 6 people to act like those people in the elevator. The prank is not real (risk of heart attack involved)
    and they have certainly been paid.

    Well most viral videos are unpredictable

    Almost every views provider was contacted to blast this.

    Yes it's botted for sure, but how many views are fakes and how many are real?
    Are there bots that can do millions of views without being banned? or only thousands?

    Average likes for a video with 25,000,000 views is anywhere from 50,000-100,000 although 100,000 is definitely on the higher end. I'm not saying the views or the likes are legit, but I don't think 100,000 likes for a video with that many views is anything out of the ordinary, there's plenty of videos with the same ratio of views to likes.

    As far as the video goes, pretty funny, it had me laughing.

    If you dont know, this video went viral, not botted, you think gangnam style also is botted? Hell no

    this video might make $5000 + that show was sued for making this prank , and damn, that money what they will have to pay wont be $5000, $50000 i bet it will be more anyway. Just if you dont know whats happens in background, doesnt mean you need to put out some shit myths and facts what you think is goin on

    So basically if you have a kinda-funny video and you blast the video, it will eventually go viral on its own? The big question is whether or not the content is good enough (it's sometimes hard to judge if it's your own) and if the investment is worth it.. ? If it's true that the Gangnam producers blasted it with 100 Million on its own and the rest were legit then yes. But that was also very good catchy content.

    I know it was botted but to be honest, i have seen many videos with 25 million views and only 100k likes, not everybody is logged in at work when they are watching this type of shit or on mobile. So you can't always say stats like that are botted.

    I am surprised by YT views providers disclosing information about being contacted by this marketer... Shouldn't this stay private?

    That isn't not a new video, is just an upload of an old YT video, that dude didn't even bothered to change the aspect ration in his video editor.
