    I'll let the title speak for itself:



    All I can think of is that he did his marketing, optimization, and advertising right. Take a look at the "Top Comments" on this video and you'll see exactly what I mean:



    90% of them seem to imply that people who weren't familiar with him clicked on his videos. However, he has 4 million subscribers! Now I don't do SEO, but there's still nothing more that pisses me off than horrible content with millions of views.

    What is going on?

    I've watched Kweblecop or however you spell it and this Jelly dude and I came to the conclusion that their target audience is 12 year old boys. They all just scream in every one of their videos and they basically do the same shit over and over again.

    You just always have to keep in mind that everyone has their own opinion and is entitled to it. If you despise something, it doesn't mean that everyone else does. I'm sure theres things you love that other hate also. They definitely cater to kids though and are annoying af lol.

    Honestly, most of the YouTube audience is kids aswell. That's why PewDiePie is number one. Gaming dominates YouTube and honestly I've clicked on one of this guys video before. Not gonna lie, he does catchy titles/thumbnails.

    It's a niche. People like watching video game commentary. This is just video game commentary for people who like doing that stuff in GTA. Probably kids, as @Dagreyon said.
