Yesterday I posted a list of YouTube videos that made the most watched list for 2011. This year is going to be remembered for another video but not quite in the same way as the good ones. U.S. Presidential hopeful Rick Perry’s Strong video has more than 7 million views and over 700,000 dislikes. It replaces Rebecca Black’s many thumbs down “Friday” music video and will surely, given the time frame here, be the most disliked YouTube video for years to come. Perry’s rant against gays in the military was posted only two weeks ago on the 6th of December.
Comments on the video have been disabled and in YouTube fashion there’s a series of parody videos making fun of Perry.
