    It's been about 1 week now since we first uploaded Metro's version of 海闊天空 (Under a Vast Sky) to the internet and released it to Channel V and within that week an amazing amount has happened which I wanted to update everybody on! 

    On day 2 Metro's video reached number#1 most viewed video in Hong Kong & continued to gather stronger and stronger youtube ratings from around the world. Here is a screen grab of the ratings: 
    As you can see, they have gathered major ratings, not just from Hong Kong, but also from Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, Canada and the United Kingdom! 
    In terms of number of people actually watching, the video has received almost 270,000 views within just it's 1st week out, as you can see from this screen grab: 
    As the week rolled by, they also continued to collect lots more honours in the youtube ratings list, though for me the most impressive by far was that they managed to reach the number#6 highest rated video in the music category for the entire world!!! (screengrab below):
    Perhaps most importantly, fans have been putting up endless positive and supportive comments which really brings home what this song means to people and how happy they are to see a new and great arrangement of it. 
    But of everything, by far the most amazing piece of news we came across was this: 
    This is a screengrab taken today from youku.com which for those of you who don't know, is China's number 1 video site, their equivalent of youtube (youtube is banned in China). Now here is a close up of the figures on the page: 
    The first number which I have highlighted is number of views. 
    Yes, that does read OVER 3 MILLION VIEWS  on youku.com in just 7 days!!!
    So when I said that this video has had MASSIVE SUCCESS I wasn't kidding. 
    If you haven't already, please congratulate Metro on this huge achievement. They are still a little in disbelief that this is really happening. You can visit their Alive not Dead page here:
    For anyone who hasn't already seen their video you can check it out here:

    More updates to come over the following days!

    Omg you guys are awesome. I was so shocked hearing the fluent Cantonese, then was even more blown away with the great vocals and harmonies. Literally sent shivers down my spine.

    3 million, that's insane!  Jet Li and Daniel Wu videos don't get 3 million views...
