Yuri, are you sure you have in your portfolio the most downloaded female? I think my sister can easily compete or overtake Cecile and the other two popular females you have. :)  I wouldn't know in your portfolio if it is Cecile, the young blond lady or the brunette that always shows up with Jesper.
Oooh, this looks like fun.
I'll bring the popcorn.  :D

I thought the video was very amusing. I don't think anyone would take the claim that he is the most downloaded man in the world as a serious factual claim, it's just a fun promo for the photographer and and a commentary on stock. We may not all agree with the commentary he is making, but none the less it is presented in a very fun and amusing way.
I'm sorry that it has been reacted to so badly by Yuri. I don't think it would have been hard for the guy to track down that model, especially as he may have tried several of the top micro models and that was the one he managed to get hold of. I also don't think that the creator of the video will be made to look silly or like a poor researcher by the fact that there are better selling models, again because, it was a silly little fun promo video from the outset.

  I totally agree. It was a fun video with a great idea behind it. It was obviously done with the models consent. Why Yuri would feel that he "owns" the concept of "the world's most anything" or control over another persons actions says more about him than it does about the video. When i saw the video, the first thing i thought of was the commercials for "the world's most interesting man" for a beer company. Maybe Yuri could do "the world's least sense of humor".

I'll post images on FB, but I won't tag models unless they ask.

If there's any way to kill a good model's career, this publicity is it.

What professional designer is going to want an image with this guy in it now?

I exaggerate, but not much...

I guess he's not going to be working with Yuri again.
As they say, "an interesting way to hand in your notice".

Andres, you must contact Guiness to make this interesting!  Wasn't there talk of a Yuri reality tv program or something - it would be good conflict!

Why would this promotional video keep us from buying an image of this model if it is perfect for a project we have in the works. 

In general, I think we all take ourselves way to seriously!

I enjoyed this video exactly because the participants poked fun at themselves. My daughter who is a model found the feigned unease and jabs at self-centered narcissistic ego hilarious.

Maybe the models and photographers value system does not mesh well with today's ambitious norms, however for many of us this promotional reel was a grounded refreshing change to the all too frequent aggrandizing that is omnipresent in self promotion these days.

I like that.

I just hope IS didn't get a hold of it and decide again that money is not what makes us happy (it's what makes them happy, obviously)

The world's most downloaded person could be Chinese or a Bollywood star that most westerners wont know.  I did a search for Sachin Tendulkar in Google images and there's 23,000,000 results.  Can a stock model compete with that?  Just blown my own theory, the Bieber gets 479,000,000, a few short of Jesus with 483,000,000.  This is a bit addictive, Michael Jackson 664,000,000.  Can anyone beat that?  Yes, Barack Obama 1,020,000,000.

Wow it's hard to find one that beats Michael Jackson... but I found that God does  ;D

About 2,830,000,000 results (0.14 seconds)

(Maybe not a 'man' though...)

ETA:  Oh!  I posted before you added Obama.

Crazy video. I did not know about this. I have to be honest and say that I am not super happy about it because I do not think this video does justice to Jesper's character. I do not like that I was not contacted prior to the creation of it, because had the creator contacted me, I could have told him that Jesper is, in fact, not the most downloaded man in the world. He's far from, actually. Because of this, the video becomes a strange person's quest to make a youtube hit, for the sole purpose of self promotion, as we clearly see in the end of the video. Having Jesper read out loud a well-scripted statement about where to go if you want quality images, is in my eyes.... Well I probably should not say that here. The fact that Jesper is not the most downloaded male model unfortunately intrudes on the pride of some of my other models, which actually are the most downloaded in the world. We are in the process of filing for a Guinness World Record on behalf of our top female and male model, and when this goes through it will make this video seem a little silly and not very well researched. I also do not like that they got a hold of Jesper's personal contact information without my consent. This means that at least one of our distribution partners has broken our privacy policy, which we now have to spend time following up on.

Funny video. And truly hysterical that a relentless self promoter gets all bent out of shape at someone else doing a bit of promotion.

Well, of course, Cindy Margolis is the "world's most downloaded woman": http://www.cindymargolis.com/  So, I doubt Guiness would give any record for that.  And, actually, you couldn't really claim most licensed stock model in the world, because you'd have to have some insane way of tracking what image a certain person is in on 40+ websites, etc., etc...
