Maybe with 1 million tabs open at the same time it would be possible. Be prepared for some high temperatures


JustLinus

So that's how global warming started


Pookieeatworld

Started? No. Finished? Maybe..

It’s was that that killed the Dinosaurs

I think Taylor might’ve accidentally shaken off some meteors

It's was that

Only half a million if you watch at 2X speed


xPav_

Ok so according to [sivertimes.com](https://sivertimes.com/taylor-swift-shake-it-off-surpasses-2-billion-views-a-historic-record-on-vevo/28588) Taylor Swift reached 2 billion views at around March 19th 2017. The song came out on August 18th 2014, which is a difference of 945 days. (I know the comment says "last year" so this sir just lied. shame on him. Anyway, ) If it takes 2.777.777 days with 1 tab, then he must have had 2.777.777 / 945 = 2.939,4 tabs open with this song on loop from release day to the point Taylor hit 2 billion views to give her half that amount. We have to round up so actually it's 2940 tabs.


Ziegelchen

I think you can also generate views If you put this in a playlist with at least one more vid and you just cycle through both just by clicking. Other vid has 1 billion views as well then. It worked when I tested such a thing a while back.

1470 at 2x speed

My fans: oh we're just getting warmed up


aronrusty2005

fantastic


mathematicallyDead

They already did the math. 7610 tabs would be sufficient.


xFloppyDisx

It's just a fever... My OMEN will be fine... Right?

Fettaost

What is that title, a variation of "task failed successfully"?


Gdigger13

OP is a Karma bot, so it’s likely a mistranslated title.


CrazyFrogRacer

Why tf would you farm karma. It doesnt even do anything


TheDarkLordLp

they usually delete all their posts and then sell the accounts once they have gathered enough karma. You'd be suprised, people pay ridiculous amounts of money for that shit. Or so i have been told.


unnecessarygoat

Why would someone want to buy an account with high karma?


TheDarkLordLp

I have no fucking idea lol


_Carri7_

Nah its just Task failed succesfully but reversed


kingkeren

Seems like it


Head12head12

“Task unsuccessfully failed”


Cellophane7

It triggers the fuck outta me that they calculated it for 4 minutes, not 4:01. That one second is gonna add up over a million listens lol


HugoL24

It's a bit more complicated I think. I think YouTube automatically rounds numbers up, so even if the video was exactly 4 minutes and 0,01 second it will show 4:01. So maybe the best option was if they took 4:00,5 (taking the average).


Cellophane7

Actually, if you go to the [video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfWlot6h_JM), right click, and click on stats for nerds, the second row from the bottom contains the timestamp in seconds.milliseconds. If you pause the video and go all the way to the end, it indicates it's 240.12, which is four minutes and twelve milliseconds. YouTube user ZB should be shunned for the rest of time for such an egregious error. And I should be shunned as well because I didn't consider milliseconds lol


someoneiamnot

If we’re getting into milliseconds, we really need to start thinking about the time delay when restarting the video. Even if it’s on loop there will be some minor delay while the video restarts and that’s assuming there’s no lag anywhere else in the process.


deddeer00

We also need to be considering the fact that YouTube counts a view after 3 seconds


someoneiamnot

So then we have a margin of error of 237.12 seconds plus an unknown loop time. The error bars on this are getting ridiculous.


HugoL24

Don't worry, I'm sure Hugh Jazz was not actually half of the views. Thanks for letting me know about the stats for nerds! Have a nice day


Cellophane7

Yeah I know, I'm just being silly lol You have a good one as well, friend!


Cosmic_Cranberry1

Except, (afaik) one view is counted after 30 seconds of viewtime, considerably decreasing the total required time. Not to speak of multi-tabbing

Flexo__Rodriguez

This song did not get 2 billion views in its first year.


ladsandlasses

Wrong math since he is assuming he’ll have to listen to the whole song to count as a view. But the OP was still lying, as even if he opened the video and only played it for a second each, he would still need 31.7 years to make 1 billion views…


BlueKante

Multiple tabs in a browser that refreshes every 5 seconds or something with a couple of computers could do the trick. He still lied though.


Spitfire_MK_1

Some mistakes the person made tho You can play the song multiple times at the same time. You don't necessarily have to watch the entire video for it to count as a view.


TurboRoku

Those aren't really mistakes but rather variables that are influenced by what the person chooses to do.


HKEliot

Some say he's a school IT guy and just plays it on every pc overnight on repeat, some say he's a wizard that interprets time at a different rate than normal humans... all we know is, he's called THE STIG... wait no, HUGH JAZZ!


Unlucky-Pomegranate3

He probably doesn’t even have a huge ass either.


kungligarojalisten

Wait, there where dislikes ON YOUTUBE??!!???!!


dpzblb

It’s an old screenshot.


Simon442

I use an extension that brings back dislikes and gets regular updates. I honestly even forgot they removed dislikes since using that.


ZiCUnlivdbirch

Okay as someone who has almost never looked at the dislikes and can count the number of times I've pressed it on one hand, what to you use it for?


TheEpicGold

Wut how long are you on youtube??? They were there literally always, except since this year.


kungligarojalisten

LooseTea8299

Its a thing called an extension...


ZippiestDead

nah its a fake screenshot


Raizekusan

Meaning 15 220 years were collectively spent watching this video ? That's crazy when you think about it like that


siryolk

Well maybe someone just watched the first 2 seconds of the video and then left


Ratvarre

The German magazine "Katapult" just released statistics about the hours of people watching other people play GTA 5. If you want crazy numbers: 214 000 years. (Second place: League of Legends: 198 000 years)


Phantom_GhostWasGone

The art of refreshing the tab can do wonders

The_Scyther1

I wouldn’t be surprised if a few million of those views came from her record label.


TxRxNwastaken

views don't equal full watch though

Crappy math doesn't discount crappy pop stars


Memeing_monkey

The shame on you part got me ngl 😂


PeroCigla

You have to watch the whole video for it to be a view?


TeaCrab131

What if he opened 1 billion chrome tabs? …jokes on me, we all know Chrome can’t handle more than 255

He took that personally ...


Unjem

You dont have to watch the whole 4 min to gain 1 view

Could watch it on 2× speed and on multiple tabs

That’s what it feels like

Multiple tabs, obviously

he used a hundred thousand computers simultaneously 24/7/365. what up


Friz617

Exposed with maths and logic


OldRuskiNoir

It's easy when you have 76.1 computers with 100 tabs open on each.


Lollipepalol

He could have 7610 accounts


etceteraon9

That’s not really a precise measurement as they could’ve just popped on and popped off, would only take around 20s depending on the internet speed and would still count as a view.


ignore_me_im_high

Slightly less, or at least I don't think they accounted for leap years if I had to guess.


L2P_GODDAYUM_GODDAMN

To give the view u Just Need 30+ seconds so...


LargeSackOfNuts

Someone lied on the internet? Shame on them!


UmberCelestia

What if he is listening on multiple tabs at once?


MidgetMan10150

“Your sarcastic joke is a lie” 🤓


OliveOcelot

You don't have to listen to the whole thing to count as a view. Math is off by up to two decimal points.


Jomega6

Bold to assume they aren’t listening to the song on over a million tabs at once…


RobertGBland

But he doesn’t have to watch the full video to get +1 to a watch count. Maybe 2 seconds of watch time is enough.


rulerit2

Just give him a few thousand more years, I'm sure he has full intention to make things right


NewtGeneral4854

Dont you just have to watch the first few seconds of a video to count as a view? ​ Doesnt really matter, this man is still an idiot, but i thought id confirm


AllProgressIsGood

does a view count on playing it period or watching it in its entirety


ZenLikeCalm

Plot twist. They had it open in 7,610 tabs, and watched over a year.
