Why is the view count on George Peck’s '[I]Rough Terrain Unicycling[/I]' video so low

Why is the YouTube view count on George Peck’s 'Rough Terrain Unicycling' video so low? [Rhetorical question]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJbc76hyR3c
I’m probably responsible for at least ten of 158 views. It’s fantastic and inspirational.
Kris Peck really did a fantastic job reconstructing the original footage and synchronizing his father's narration and guitar playing.
Take a look and share it.
And after you watch it, post your favorite quote from the video. I have so many favorite quotes. Below is just one of them.

"Curbs are great for learning to roll over obstacles.
I love curbs. You can’t spend enough time on curbs.”

Be well and keep on sharing.

Because this is the official video, that's an upload by some random guy.

Shmolagin,
Thanks for leading me to Vimeo and thanks to Óscar Romero who lead me to you. I watched all the Kris Peck unicycle/bike related videos and they’re great. We live in a beautiful interconnected world!

George Peck: "Remember, what you're seeing here is not about what I can do on a unicycle, but what you can do.
As long as there is traction and room to maneuver, a unicycle will take you anywhere your skill allows.”

This statement can apply to the internet and to life. Good stuff.

Be well and keep connecting.

George Peck: "Hills should be taken standing up without holding the saddle. You can get tremendous torque by getting as far forward as possible. Watch out, because this puts you as risk for a dismount out the front. The closer you get to the edge of the balance envelop the quicker you’ll go through it. But you have to be at the edge to optimize performance; so go slow, get back momentarily for obstacles and scooch over them with your hips. All of which is a good trick while leaning way forward. It’s a skill that will take time and sensitivity to develop."

This quote has helped me get to the top of some very entry level hills. I can't wait to apply it to more challenging hills.

Be well and keep pushing the 'edge'.

I love how he suggests wheel walking for that extra leverage on the steepest stuff.

George Peck: "Wheel walking is a good technique and exercise for soft or steep terrain. This is because wheel walking provides a lower affected gear ratio than pedaling. And it makes the going more interesting when it’s too easy to pedal."
------
"The other object of rough terrain cycling is to make it as interesting as possible. This berm is too easy to pedal, but it’s a reasonable challenge to wheel walk."

-------
MrImpossible, I agree. I like how he makes it sound so reasonable to choose wheel walking over pedaling.

Thanks for sharing.

Be well and keep making it interesting.
