Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is the 5th-most disliked YouTube video EVER

Haha, holy shit, it’s about to beat Gangnam Style

Look, it was already funny last week when Activision tried to spin 400,000 dislikes on its Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare trailer as a positive, but the dislike brigade might actually make Tennyson tremble.

Since then, the trailer has racked up almost a million more dislikes in just a couple days for a total of 1,360,067. I don’t know if the Battlefield 1 reveal spurred more hate or what. According to the Most Disliked YouTube Videos playlist, that’s good for 5th-most hated video on the site, right behind PSY’s “Gangnam Style.”

Consider, though, that “Gangnam Style” has been up for four years while amassing 2.5 billion views and a like-to-dislike ratio of 10.8 million to 1.5 million.

Infinite Warfare has been up for a week and only has 14.6 million views and a like-to-dislike ratio of 275,000 to almost 1.4 million.

Almost every video* on the most-disliked list is popular music that people likely got sick of (Justin Beiber’s “Baby,” apparently featuring fucking Luda, is far and away most-disliked at over 6 million, followed by that “Friday” video at over 2 million) and responded accordingly, but it looks like people are seeking out this trailer to express their distaste for Infinity Ward thinking space is the place (and choosing a subtitle so annoyingly near their studio name).

*Inexplicably, the third-most dislike video ever, just behind “Friday,” is some Brazilian dude in a park breaking glass and trying to cut some belt buckle looking thing with an old, rusty saw. Fucking millenials!
