Who can forget such a creative video premiere? Today (Oct 12), marks one year since Justin Bieber pranked fans around the world, including countless news sources, by saying that his laptop and camera were stolen from his tour manager’s office while on tour.
The "thief", with the Twitter handle @Gexwy, began tweeting Justin and threatened to leak his private home videos and pictures to the public. After days of drama and outraged fans in @Gexwy's twitter mentions he tweeted ‘Here it is Justin Bieber’ along with a link that lead to Justin Bieber’s music video, ‘Beauty And A Beat’ featuring Nicki Minaj. Just overnight Bieber’s ‘Beauty And A Beat’ music video had been seen over 5.5 million times. The video went on to take the record of the most views in a 24-hour period.
One year and over 300 million views later! Congrats.
