that's okay though, cause the delivery was better and followed by an unreal guitar riff/tone

A lot of youtube videos rely on that. 1 million views is really not that many anyway. A good hit song could get 100 million.

and frankly you can buy 1 million views on YouTube for $25,000 - $50,000... which really isn't too much of their advertising budget.. since BC / Smashing Pumpkins are all about advertising their crap in recent years.

Does anyone really think that bollyboy paid sumerian to promote the album via internet, in this case youtube? Where can the downfall of klicks after 1m. be seen ?

songs don't get played on the radio because the DJ likes it.

the band paid a lot of money for this to be pushed as a single.

when products get pushed, it gains views.

in short, they paid for those 1m views.

Billy had money to spend after the check cleared from Apple from the We Only Come Out at Night commercial.

yeah it's gotta be some $$$ at work. you don't go from complete commercial and radio irrelevance to being the #1 added song on radio over night. again the music hasn't had some great improvement, this is still Monuments tier stuff. I thought Dorian was better than this.

If it makes Nu-Pumpkins money to fund reissues and archive releases, so be it.

Once again left puzzled by Billy's plan. Happy to see he's taking some steps to get the new music heard but weird that its this song with a video with him in his Star Wars senator outfit.

yeah hopefully, that's what we really want. the day the machina box set finally comes out will be a good day. imagine spending all this time investing millions in some third rate wrestling league pipe dream instead of taking care of your musical legacy the right way.

I do think one of those countdowns is for the Machine Resissue, i just hope it isn't some exclusive Zuzu's thing. I don't anything about Sumerian, would they be putting out the box set now?

Keep everything in this video the same, except the shots of Billy are filmed from a wing-mirror pov with him leaning out a black SUV, facing forward and disinterested, travelling through an empty US town /city streets at night. And then lyrics also have some sort of relevance to current events. Plus it's a 1979 callback. And he doesn't dance.

so it's like he's travelling to the S&M club. Giggity.

Corgan's marketing team has got to work on SEO optimization. No results relating to the Pumpkins appear anywhere on the first DuckDuckGo query results page for "Cyr," and there are only a couple somewhat down the page for "The Colour of Love."

No Wikipedia pages for either, either!

Somebody's getting fired.

The ideia is good but putting duckduck results as an argument in a conversation is meanless.

We’re all still here whining about how the latest Pumpkins album doesn’t sound the way we want like it’s 1998. Love to see it, folks

Fuck off.

Who here has said anything about wanting to #LiveInThePast?

This is typical Billy/SadMachines gaslighting.
