Fast Fast video approaching 150,000 views on YouTube

Let’s Buy Happiness’ single Fast Fast (released last February 2011) is currently enjoying some viral success on YouTube. The view counter had been around ~18,000 for most of the year, but towards the end of November things started to go a little crazy…

Two weeks ago (18th Dec) the video had amassed 84,537 hits (around 60,000 of those in the previous 4 weeks) — today the current figure stands at a whopping 148,366 (another 60,000 in the past 2 weeks) :) Looks like some of these views have come from referrals from related videos since October:

Emily and The Woods – Steal His Heart (10,505)
Soley – Pretty Face (9,381)
Ben Howard – Empty Corridors (4,267)
Marble Sounds – Come Here (3,102)

I think the successful tour support slot with We Were Promised Jetpacks has also increased the profile of the band. Exciting times ahead for LBH in 2012 hopefully :)

You can also view the ‘Fast Fast’ video in glorious 1080p thanks to Corona Films (although only 82 views compared to the 360p version – which is a shame):

Also be sure to check out the band’s last single Dirty Lakes (currently at 28,463 hits and likewise starting to rise rapidly):

Interesting how many commenters on these two videos seem to think the band are from Iceland :)
