Since Michael Jackson’s death yesterday, it seems like everyone has been getting nostalgic, listening to his music and watching his videos. MTV is playing a nonstop Jacko tribute through this evening, and YouTube has promoted his videos to its homepage.

That’s driven Michael Jackson’s official music video views on YouTube to 10 million today, up from its daily average around 216,000 views, according to video analytics firm TubeMogul. (Almost a 50X increase.) And in the past 24 hours, more than 1,145 videos have been uploaded to YouTube mentioning Jackson’s death, totaling 14.6 million views, TubeMogul reports.
