This brief story out of Chicago says there are two videos ahead of Michael's Thriller, as the #1 most viral-viewed video.
So, please visit MJ's Channel on YouTube and cue Thriller at least once a day. Ask your MJ fan-friends to do the same. Let's knock out the two before him... and put Michael were he belongs... #1
... and speaking of Number Ones...
(Billboard-August 26, 2009) "Michael Jackson's 2003 hits compilation "Number Ones" sells another 68,000 (down 15%) and ranks at No. 2 on Billboard's Comprehensive Albums chart. That brings the set's 2009 total up to 1,619,000, pulling it ahead of Taylor Swift's "Fearless" as the top-selling album of the year. "Fearless" has shifted 1,608,000."
The year is not yet over and Michael's lead is small for top selling and still at number 2 for the Comprehensive chart. We have to change that! Need a spare copy? Stocking stuffers for nieces and nephews, friends? Secret Santa gifts for the office? It's under $10 which meets with United States Postal gift rules. Give one to your mail carrier, stylist, accountant... anyone. Start buying them now and you could have your shopping and wrapping done before Thanksgiving! Put it on your wish list from everyone-- you can re-gift later!
UPDATE: Here is a BBC report on Michael's UK sales of Number Ones, dated August 24, 2009.

WARNING: DO NOT VISIT THE WEBSITE IN THE UPPER RIGHT OF THE VIDEO. Appears someone has repurchased the domain and it has NOTHING to do with Michael.
UPDATE: September 5, 2009 Billboard Catalog Album Charts: Michael has spots 1 through 6, and Jackson 5 have spots 8 and 10. Let's keep it up!
