Forget tallying how many views a video on YouTube has received. That’s so last week. Now we’re celebrating the number of likes a comment has racked up.
Over one million people have given Seth Everman the thumbs up for writing “I’m the bald guy” under Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy” video.
The YouTuber took to Twitter to celebrate the feat, which marks the first time a single comment has reached that milestone on the platform.

Not sure what prize Everman will earn, but he tagged YouTube in a later tweet asking for “one golden comment award please.”
