It is the second-most watched movie trailer within the first day ever, trailing only Endgame's first trailer, which was viewed 289 million times in its first 24 hours. If you want to delve deeper down the rabbit hole of this distinctive record, the high mark was previously held by Avengers: Infinity War, amassing 230 million views in the same period.
The reason why two Endgame trailers and an Infinity War trailer occupy the top three spots of this record has to do with one simple fact.
we aren't even trying to watch the trailer over and over
we are trying to find easter eggs and some sneakies
