This never ceases to amaze me. Several years ago, I wrote and directed this Planet of the Apes parody for SF sketch comedy stalwarts Killing My Lobster, for a Sci-Fi themed show. Is it my edgiest work? Nope. My best? I can't say. But it has gotten more YouTube views than anything else I've ever made--nearly 350,000 as of this writing.
It also disrupts typical YouTube viewing patterns because views seem to spike every few years. Why? Because every time a new APES movie comes out, it sparks interest in the original one. And in the interest of tight satire, I had named the video "PLANET OF THE APES (1968) ORIGINAL ENDING." Comedy, meet SEO.
The craziest part: Even when viewers feel like they've been tricked by the title, they still like the video.
