    No sh$t; here's where the news broke:
    http://mashable.com/2010/01/06/youtube-video-79-billion/

    The video shot to the most viewed, though it's now been reset by Youtube.

    Before it was reset:

    "jcs101194 (11 hours ago)
    79 billion + 218 ratings = bullshit"

    "morskus (11 hours ago)
    not possible to have that many views how did you do it???"

    "burrhead34 (11 hours ago)
    This could have been done with a Firefox Extension called Reload Every. You can set it to refresh every second. Load this on a ton of pages and set it to reload every second. WALAH..... 79 billion views."

    "IMnineonetwo (11 hours ago)
    Youtube gets a billion hits a day, this wasn't just uploaded look at the date September 6, 2009.

    It's either a glitch or a hack."

    Comments on blog:
    "Someone in BHW claims it was his account. But clearly, ruling a hacking spree is still dubious. Hackers usually come on a crash and burn type, this vid was already posted since Sept, 2009.

    Could be a glitch, or a glitch that was exploited but either way now that its being reported, expect that this will receive a proper view count.

    However, if this was really a hack - I must say Blackhaters would die just to know how this trick was pulled off.

    Expecting more updates with this one."

    Has this been posted here before? ~ I couldn't find in using search :S

    I like the picture used here to cover this story in the Radio Broadcasting trade press (clipped from Mashable):

    Not so cool that "BHW" is in the press...

    YT freezes at 300 mark only when it detects a pattern....like someone refreshing every 25 seconds for 300 views.
