99% of People Can't Watch This Video

How the scam works:

(with explanatory video below) Here's a scam that posts an NSFW (Not Safe For Work) image on Facebook or Twitter stating that 99% - or any other high percentage - of people can't watch this video for more than 25 seconds. Of course, as most of us are curious creatures, we click away.

What happens is: you click on this image and are immediately linked to one of numerous websites where a supposed provocative YouTube screenshot appears and if you click on this you automatically open a share page on Facebook and place a virus link to your wall. The link will be the same sort of scam you just got hooked into.
