After New York band, Atomic Tom uploaded a recording of their song ‘Take Me Out’ on You Tube on the 14 October 2010, it hit 2.7 million views in less than 2 weeks.
A great song, it definitely is (Take me out). An edgy 2 camera shoot of the performance taken on the New York subway is another ingredient. But ingenuity in taking this totally viral is the fact that it the band members are playing iPhones.
