Socks Riots video suddenly very popular

The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre's video about the London Riots, from a month ago, has suddenly had a peak in viewing figures. Quite a big peak, shooting up from about 3000 viewings to over 16,000 viewings. This suggests someone's made it into a featured video, or included it on a high profile site.

Either way, not only has it brought in lots of viewers, it's brought in lots of comments. Bless their cotton socks, here's what our new fans have to say:

Why have people liked this video? It's so like..stupid and gay

This video gave me aids. :[

but in a really good way.

@XtremeOwner Well *I* bike it because I'm gay. So, there's 2 thousand odd "liking" people there. Maybe they're all gay like me?

@sibeliandrift No, if anything they liked your video because it was stupid which made them laugh. Your some guy in his 20s who puts socks on his hands and talks to himself for 3 minutes, chatting a load of nonsense. Try using this technique on girls, I'm sure they'll dig you. ;)

UPDATE Friday morning, viewing figures have gone up to over 26,000. Must be doing something right, but still no idea what:
