I claim innocence - the YouTube API is returning those numbers, so it's nothing at our end:

"yt$statistics": {
"favoriteCount": "0",
"viewCount": "10354195"
}

2010 - "Lift" (Ghost - Lighting/FX) - Late
2009 - "Omnipedia" (Religious - Producer/Editor)
2008 - "The Perfectionist" (Superhero - Producer/Director/Editor)
2007 - "Bane" (Monster - Producer/Director/Editor)
2005 - "Super Boy Meets Girl" (Superhero - FX)
2004 - "House of Raging Women" (Educational - FX)

Yes, there's work to be done, thanks Ytube.. (In the mean-time, get your screen shots framed and those invoices off to Mr. YouTube asap - #monetize )

Next project - validating facebook 'likes' for the fair and honest online experience we assume exists.

Looking at one of 2015's ones by Barbecue Everything in Hamilton, there is 19,127,269 views on that one video, on YouTube there is only 137 views...

Feel free to read preceding posts for hints, but yes there is an issue with the YouTube Counter unfortunately for some.
