Infinite Warfare Trailer 5th Most Disliked YouTube Video EVER

It has been just over a week since Activision and Infinity Ward debut the trailer for the 2016 entry to the series Infinite Warfare. It is safe to say that the launch could have gone better with the trailer receiving mass criticism from the Call of Duty fan base. The video has now racked up more than 1.3million dislikes, a massive low for any CoD video. This number just keeps on rising and will continue as more and more get on the bandwagon. It currently sits at number 5 of the most disliked youtube videos EVER.

Could it reach the number one spot (not a stat Activision will want to publicise)? The video is still a long way off Justin Bieber’s Baby at number 1 with over 6 million and Rebecca Black’s Friday at 3 million taking the second spot.

People need to chill out.
