Can you name the most watched video on YouTube?
It is, of course, ‘Despactio’ by Luis Fonsi featuring Daddy Yankee.
You might not know the names but you’ll definitely have heard the song.
Here’s a reminder for those that need it.
Another question now.
Can you name the first video to rack up 1 million views on YouTube? Not as easy, is it?
We’ll put you out of your misery. It was Ronaldinho’s internet breaking Nike advert.
The original has been lost to the sands of time but Nike put a remastered version up in 2015 to commemorate Ronaldinho’s feat.
In the video Ronaldinho laced up a fresh pair of Nike Tiempo boots before hitting the crossbar four times in a row on the volley.
Was it real or was it fake?
This is Ronaldinho we’re talking about, of course it was real.
Ronaldinho was the original internet breaker, back in the days when Kim Kardashian was still Paris Hilton’s assistant.
Nowadays you can go viral by cementing your head in a microwave or eating a Persil tablet.
So here’s to a simpler time. Here’s to Ronaldinho.
