Video of Shoes Being Thrown at Bush Viewed 5.5 Million Times on YouTube
The video, which shows President George W. Bush ducking to avoid shoes thrown at him by a reporter, is definitely going to stay in people’s minds for a long time to come. The shoe throwing was carried out on Saturday, when President Bush was speaking at a press conference, which took place in Baghdad. The video has already been making rounds through YouTube and has gained tremendous popularity.
The YouTube video portrays the absolute audaciousness of the shoe thrower as well as the complete inadequacy of President Bush’s security. The shoe thrower was ultimately overpowered by one of the journalists present at the press conference.
This video, which has been put up on YouTube, has been viewed more than a phenomenal 5.5 million times. As per a report by ‘Visible Measures,’ this YouTube video has been embedded and accessed at not less than 640 websites.
In a time span of not even half a day, the video viewings shot up dramatically to an amazing 5.5 million. There is a good possibility that this particular video could defeat the ‘Obama victory speech video’ when it comes to the ‘viral reach’ in two days. It remains to be seen if this is the image for which President Bush will stay in people’s minds.
