Baffled by More Views Than I Expected and Plans for Next Video

Somehow I have 820 views on my silly test video, my initial post.  I have no idea how or why that's happening, I'm not complaining, I just don't understand since I'm not promoting it.  It's just the local fire department pulling Santa on a trailer for 4 minutes.

The other weird thing is that he doesn't even show up until 3.5 minutes in, but people are only watching for an average of one minute.  So they aren't even seeing him, which is kinda the point?

Then my other 2 videos are just me looking back at old camera gear and my first digital camera that was insanely $1,000.  So that's just for camera gear heads so I get why it's not popular.

The third vid is just my Christmas tree then a wipe to me hilariously ripping open a box of chocolates and cutting them up and putting whip cream on them and eating them with a fork and knife.  Yea, simple, not so great, but only 2 mins and I have lots of fast edits and some simple piano music.  Not a lot there, I know, but I thought it was at least something, since it was edited and composed and maybe cute?  Ornaments?  Sets a mood?  Ok so that's a dud, fine.

So this got me thinking that I should just do a highlight vid of these and of course, keep it way shorter than any so far.  But at least have it move really fast so that it is over in the average one minute that my viewers are giving it.

It also might be funny to cut it up and talk fast and maybe put some fast cutting music to it also.  This still isn't my series that I want to produce, but I just have this feeling like I want to complete this first group by putting and end to it with a very short "highlight" reel that may just be the best of all of them and see if anyone likes it as much as FD Santa.

Here's my view charts on the YouTube analytics stats that is blowing my mind because I was psyched when I somehow had 20 views, then more when I had 80, then 100, then 200, then 4, 5, 6, 7, now 800+ views on that?  Weird, weird, weird, weird weird....

It's 1am ET so I can't even start this highlight reel right now, I wish I could...gn...

I'm on Twitter now also with same name, nocats.net I follow all follows.

I can't sleep, so I'm doing something different first.  I'm going to show the highlights of the videos but from my desktop just playing in VLC, narrate it, and all in under one minute.  Done, it's up.
