rtay.io/unwatched videos

Here's a random video with no views:

Watch another?

Using the youtube API and some python on an AWS lambda, I'm able to generate random search queries to find videos without views. It's crazy just how many youtube videos go completely unwatched.

Most of the videos I've found with this have been:
 - Car and property advertisements
 - Auto-generated music videos
 - College sports
 - Amateur let's plays
 - Short videos where nothing happens
 - University lectures (it's a harsh reality)

That's about it; much less exciting than I anticipated. I think youtube hides these videos for a reason.
