Video of the week: High School Musical 2 on YouTube

“High School Musical 2” debuted this week. If you don’t have kids, you may not be aware that this Disney franchise is a mega-hit, selling more albums in 2006 than any other (even American Idol stars). The debut of the sequel this week received 17 million viewers on Disney, the most ever for a cable show. Wow, now that’s impressive. “High School Musical” stars Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, and Ashley Tisdale. (I finally know who Ashley Tisdale is, ’cause I’ve seen her YouTube videos before.)

I’m more intrigued by the fact that clips from “High School Musical” are some of the most watched clips on YouTube, dating back close to one year. Disney doesn’t seem to mind these postings by third parties on YouTube since they haven’t asked for their removal. It might well be that Disney doesn’t want to alienate all the teenagers and young kids who are posting these videos of “High School Musical” on YouTube out of their sheer fanaticism for the movie.
