Will "Promote my Video" boost my YouTube video play count?

Play counts on ReverbNation and YouTube are treated a little bit differently. 

Your play counts on ReverbNation will count as soon as the video is clicked and the video starts to play.

YouTube, however, will only count a video when it is played a certain percentage of the way through. YouTube doesn't disclose what percentage of a video must play in order to count as a view (to prevent any gaming of the system) but we do know that if your video is viewed on YouTube in its entirety by someone who clicked it, it is counted as one view.
