Caver Keith Videos on Social Media

I'm Nearly famous 2

Back in October I received an email from an intern working for Extreme on Facebook asking if he could use clips from Caving Claustrophobia Kill or Cure.


I said yes and a shorter edit was uploaded to the Extreme Facebook page on 24th October last year under the title Claustrophobia Level 9000! To date it has been watched over 7 million times, shared 59,000 times, has had 35,000 post reactions and has attracted 33,000 comments.

Extreme Adventure

I was then asked if it was OK to upload it to the Facebook page Extreme Adventure. This was uploaded on 14th November under the title Claustrophobia over level 9000! This version has been watched 600,000 times with 2,700 shares, 1,300 comments and 1,200 post reactions.

More Extreme

Extreme obviously recognised a good thing and re-posted the video on 20th December. This time the statistics are:

  • 20 million views
  • 85,000 post reactions


On 12th February I received the following message via the Dudley Caving Club Facebook page:

Hey guys,
I work at LADbible on facebook
We came across this video of you guys..
I was wondering if we could make a news video about what you guys do
We think our audience will love it!

The video appeared on Facebook on 13th February under the title ARE YOU BRAVE ENOUGH TO TRY CAVING. It's a mix of clips from Caving Claustrophobia Kill or Cure, Best Extreme Caving Video Moments 2017 and Caver Stuck in the Lobster Pot.

The statistics for this video are:
  • 2.2 million views
  • 12,000 post reactions
All of this exposure has led to mainstream media fame, but this will have to wait for the next instalment.
