Something weird on Youtube

I've always been very interested in secrecy, and the laws of internet, and corporations, and such ifs.

I was reading the website of "Criss Angel," a magician and stage performer. It says that he made a water-walking video and it received 46 million views.... but the weird part is, he didn't upload it.
Somebody else uploaded it, with strange grammar and a different username.

Now, why would anyone do this?
Why didn't Criss Angel upload the video himself?! With 46 [48 now] million views, why would you give somebody else the credit - why wouldn't you upload your own video after 5-6 million views of the other one?



I think the truth is:
-Copyright laws are very funny [and obviously it is, considering how obviously criminal, mafietta-like, and over-reaching it is.]
-Criss Angel is not allowed to post on Youtube

OK, maybe the truth is, he's just not his own manager, and he can't post his own clips...
but I thought I saw something weird and secretive, and had to post it.
