TableTennisDaily's latest best shots of 2011 video has taken the net by storm! The video has gone viral which has over 400.000 views in just 4 days and counting. After doing some research through google, the video has featured on many main stream websites! The video has been viewed by thousands of non table tennis players. The comments and responses are interesting. Many famous twitter accounts have also posted the video! The response is incredible!

TTMediaDaily youtube statistics are telling me the video was publish on CNN, however I cannot find the link to that article.

After looking at the comments and responses from the video, do you think the video is good for the sport and that table tennis participation can increase. Lets hope this video has promoted the sport and made it more popular.

This is amazing haha. The video was created just to go along with the voting thread as a reminder for members. Now it is a promotional instrument on the web :D

You (Dan) can check which sites have linked to your video, and how many hits it's had from there. It's a bit hard to explain but there should be a button for it somewhere around the description, on the original YT-page of the video. Can't tell exactly where as I'm using my iPod right now, but I remember using it in the past.

It isn't quite viral just yet. A viral video is having a million views and depending on consistency also within a short period of time say 1 week or 1 day, but nonetheless the video is fantastic and I love watching it. Everyone that's in TT in the U.S. has watched it pretty much. I keep seeing it posted on my FB and I always recommend them to join the site. So hopefully I'll see some more familiar names here.

Whatever it is, the article and the video are there ;) It is really going everywhere. There is a sad but true line in this article by the way: '... professional table tennis. It's a game everyone has played and no one watches.' Casual info for these guys, but it really points out the problem with table tennis.

This is so great Dan! Incredible!

So sad, this are only the Top10 Shots, not the Top10 Rallys. The Top10 Rallys would be for laymen much more unbelievable!

Hey, lets not get too technical. :) Since 11:00am today it has had over 40,000 views. I think that is very cool.

Aha this is true! I literaly made it for the members of youtube to try get them to vote on the poll and you guys of course :). Bit of luck, and its flying around the web!

Lol, since Reflex Sports gave me a copyright ban on my TableTennisDaily youtube channel which caused TableTennisDaily to close down I lost all passion into making TT videos. I think i'm going to have to make a come back. Thanks for the kind words Azlan! :)

Hi Steven, thanks for the feedback :). I have checked the YT statistics, its still updating the count. The statistics need to be refreshed as its still on the 21st December. Hopefully tomorrow the count will update itself so we can see where all the views have come from :)

Hey Richard :)

Yeah your right its not viral in terms of all videos, however I think its viral in terms of sports videos. The Sun published the video as a viral sports video as it was featured in top viewed videos in the sports category on youtube.

just from reading the comments there i can already tell people are getting more interested in the sport, and even doing some research on the rules. I think this video will really promote the sport in a big way :) especially when the countdowns of 2011 start

Wow on FailBlog! Thats insane! I have known them since the start when I started my youtube career, crazy to see a TableTennisDaily video on their site! :)

Hey Axamax, thanks for the positive comments. I think your right, people are starting to realise how difficult this sport really is. This video has made the sport enjoyable to watch and its showed the skill involved by all players. And as you say, people are even googleing the rules ect to find out whats right and whats wrong.

I think 2012 is a big year in terms of Table Tennnis with the World Tour and lets not forget the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics! Once people see the sport being played on their TV screens they may want to take up the sport and search for more about it on the internet.

443.000 now :)

Its funny because I made a post on facebook around 3 days ago to say lets try push this video to half a million views by Christmas. The way things are going, it should reach 500.000 views just before Christmas day :)

Geca, it is a kind of unfair, isn't it? We do videos and videos, Dan makes one and he gets the cake of 2011:D

What I meant by that was that we should all get hopping and keep checking the video out. I watch the video at least twice a day, so it'd be great to get a video of Table Tennis to the viral level. It really needs to be up there. The only videos of Table Tennis to go viral are either spoofs or very old videos. I'd like to see some TTD videos go viral in a matter of weeks.

In terms of videos, viral is usually a good thing.

Sure it is good for the game, but as for USA table tennis growth, you have to have infastructure and clubs + people to treat the new player right plus incentive to keep 'em coming. USA has to develop that and the ingredients are set to benefit from stuff like this.
