Again, he is acting man. You know how many actors do things that EYE don't think I would do either? That doesn't take away from the fact that they are still acting.

 

The whole CONCEPT of television (now YouTube (SAME THING)), is for the user to suspend disbelief.

 

It isn't different at all. You only call it different because you grew up on television, well YouTUbe IS television for a new generation of kids.

 

Like seriously step back and think about what "we" are complaining about.

 

A person, on camera, doing things for attention. And getting paid for it. That is what theatre is.

Nah. I get what you're saying. But I'm just speaking for myself. I'm not a fake person. I couldn't do it if I wanted to.

Could you? Like I said I don't think it's in your blood to pull any of the stunts he's doing. And I don't mean that as an insult. You seem too real to fake mental health etc for a show people think is real.

I wouldn't do it and I know it. Yeah some real **** I could speak on for sure. You wanna see me get blazed and eat on camera? Like action and Eddie All day! Would I do what he's doing? Hell no. I got to do what makes me happy man. I don't care about a quick mil. I'm doing just fine.

If you would do ANY form of acting, you are willing to be a "fake" person.

 

Don't say what you would or wouldn't do until someone is telling you they are willing to pay you, x, y, z.

 

I hear what you are saying. I am NOT saying that he ISN'T doing some sucka stuff by doing some of the foolishness thathe did. That is understood. The Yoga Pants prank was seriously some sucka stuff. :lol

 

And the mental health stuff is FOUL as well. :lol

 

BUT, he is an actor and that is what actors do.

 

I guess we are saing the same thing

post #364 of 384
you're right DC. he never claimed his vids to be authentic. his main goal is to get more views, which he did in spectacular faction and i have always admired that aspect. i'll be on facebook and i'll see one of my friends here in hawaii "like" a fousey vid that was shared by someone in amsterdam. dude has global coverage. and this was the dude that once asked people on NT to PS his birthday flyer was back in the day. my opinion is only that it's disingenuous and nothing more. now i'm here wondering how many parents coached their kid's responses on the jimmy kimmel halloween candy vid mean.gif

i honestly see nothng wrong with acting like Key & Peele for a mil ticket
post #366 of 384
Yeah I think we are. I'm not giving him props on any of that. But yeah he made some money. Cool, a lot of people are making money. There is plenty of money to make without looking like a clown. The fastest way isn't always the best. Where will he be in 10 years? We won't care about him so he better invest his money wisely while he's still got it. I'm sure he will, he seems like a smart guy. Your first mil is the hardest. He got that so it's nothing to keep it coming in.

I still don't understand the science behind getting paid for internet stuff. InstaGrams and YouTube.

At the end of the day it's not "wrong" it just isn't how I carry myself. I don't play that much man. Like I'm not joking when I say I physically couldn't do it. laugh.gif I don't like attention like that. I'm not looking like an idiot for someone's lulz.

YouTube does contracts and pays you by the view. There is different pay scales too for YouTube. Big boss Jody explained it to me but it was confusing as hell.

If you got a following companies will pay you $$$ to post a pic of their product/service. But you knew that already, I'm just feeding you.

Yea I never saw Illest hold up any products in his videos. Neither do a lot of people I see videos of.

post #373 of 384
i think product endorsement is more prevalent on IG.
post #374 of 384
Oh my bad misinterpreted. But he's bringing in loyal and new users, ad revenue. So they're giving him a lil cut.
post #375 of 384
They get money for every view too. It's just a few cents but if you got big numbers it adds up.
post #376 of 384

So do corporations get cuts for ad revenue too? So it is essentially what commercials serve as on regular TV?

 

So is there a special # of followers/subscribers you have to have before those companies start to approach you or do you send in an application to get ads?

post #377 of 384
Anyone you see with a vevo YouTube account is paid by YouTube.

Even joe blow gets paid by YouTube if he agrees to have the ads before his videos. It's all numbers though, you need the views and subscribers or you won't make anything. It just an option, do you want ads before your video for x amount of money? Yes or no. You could make an account right now giving reviews on toilet paper and just check the box where you want ads before your vid to get paid.

http://videopower.org/how-many-views-to-make-money-on-youtube/

You don’t make money based on the amount of views you have. You make money based on people’s engagement with the ad. Engagement here means clicking or watching a ad for more than 30 seconds. YouTube Advertising is managed in the Adwords platform. Advertisers choose ads on a Cost Per Click (CPC) or Cost Per View (CPV) model.
post #379 of 384
Oh ok. Thanks for that, it used to be different or maybe it's only the dudes with vevo accounts get paid by view.

Been saying his videos are scripted, some of them are so blatant is cringe worthy.

Thought everyone knew this as well.

 

Videos are pure entertainment.. for those actually entertained. Which seems to be a lot of people. 

 

Good for him

i think I recall another big youtuber Todrick Hall saying that the money you make from youtube/ads, works out to about $2500 per million views

Years back I remember questioning Fousey about the people in his pranks. Did they give consent after the fact to allow them to be recorded. Did they get a cut of the $$$. I basically said he was getting paid big not for what he did but the reactions of others. I know in some places, public streets etc. you can record people without their consent. But I am unsure how he did it. But it all makes sense now. If they were paid $50 for a quick reaction, then no big deal. Assume the worst when it comes to youtube and every one of those channels/vloggers

I know that you and a few others have said that in the past but i just didn't really want to believe it just because it's pathetic to fraud like that. i realize that there's plenty of money involved but have a little bit of dignity and don't try and pass it off as genuine reactions. i guess it's all just entertainment though and it's his life, not mine. i very rarely click those kinds of vids on purpose though except maybe LAHWF. that dude cracks me up. wonder if he's fake too?

It's called acting, y'all are hating on that?
