Washington, June 25 : Avril Lavigne's fans are gaming YouTube in an attempt to make the singer's single "Girlfriend" reach the video sharing site's number one spot.
The web savvy followers of the punk popstress have set up a website that refreshes every 15 seconds, adding to Lavigne's Girlfriend view count, which currently stands at 88,935,170, reports Wired News.
The coveted top-ranking position is currently held by Judson Laipply's "Evolution of Dance" video, which clocks in at 89,714,055 pageviews.
Forum administrator Staticrebelle on the fan site Avril Bandaids posted the following call to arms:
"Avril Lavigne's 'Girlfriend' music video is less than 1 million views away from becoming the most watched video of all time on YouTube.... So what we're attempting won't be easy but ... Bahh who am I kidding? Of course it will be easy because we have a secret weapon."
The Avril Bandaids YouTube auto-refresher shows more than 100,000 pageviews have been added to the video since the site's launch June 19.
