    If i want a funny video to go viral on April 1st, can i post it unlisted today in February to accumulate views and subscribers, then officially promote it, blog it, reddit, IG, pinnit on April 1st?

    OR

    Would the video rank higher if i posted it and launched it April 1st?

    Does it matter?

    IM all the way.
    In my experience, I'd never seen any correlation with uploading in advance and it influencing how well a video does.

    It sort of depends on if this video is supposed to strictly be an "april fools" video or not, you weren't clear in your original question on that

    Not specifically april fools related, just a funny video. April 1 is the estimated launch date to get the websites, products, and everything ready.
