The Official YouTube Channel for singing and dancing viral superstar Gummibär (username GummyBearIntl), has recently reached two major milestones, surpassing 1 billion total channel views and 300 thousand subscribers.
With these achievements, Gummibär joins a rather exclusive club of about 73 other YouTube channels that currently have 1 billion views or more. Amongst the ranks are music superstars such as Eminem, Justin Beiber and Lady Gaga. However, Gummibär is the only musical artist in the list that is not signed, affiliated or distributed by a major music label, making him the first indie music artist to reach 1 billion channel views. Gummibär’s YouTube channel is also ranked 3rd in views in the Film & Animation category and the music video for his “Gummy Bear Song” ranks as the No.1 most watched video in this category as well.
The recent surge past the 300 thousand subscriber mark is not as illustrious of an achievement as 1 billion channel views, but still incredibly impressive. Subscribers are a clear reflection of the popularity of the Gummibär brand and the quality of the content on the YouTube channel. With the daily average of new subscribers regularly topping 1,000, the official Gummibär YouTube channel could double its subscribers in just another year.
Both major accomplishments come on the heels of another recent milestone, in which “The Gummy Bear Song” ranked at #23 on YouTube’s All Time Viewed Videos chart. Once again, Gummibär had broken ground in this area, being the only indie music artist on the list of 25.
The first Gummibär videos were posted in 2006 and since then the character has grown to be immensely popular around the world. Gummibär’s two official YouTube channels until today have generated for today has over 1.5 billion documented views and continues to average about 2 million views every day. In addition close to 50.000 User generated videos of Gummibar songs have been posted on YouTube lifting the total estimated views of his recordings to somewhere around 3 billion. The Gummibär YouTube channel also ranks as the 27th most viewed musician of all-time and is the 67th most viewed channel of all-time.
The success of the Gummibär brand extends outside of YouTube too. The character’s songs have been released in over 40 different countries and in over 27 different languages. Gummibär has received Sales Certification Awards in more than a dozen countries, including one for selling 96 times Platinum on Universal Records in Greece with its premier album “I Am A Gummybear,” despite the country’s adverse economic conditions.
