    It's most likely receiving more than usual engagement due to weird nature. People discuss a lot of things in Comments which also boost engagement and thus pushed by YT Algo.

    He's making serious money with them videos, quite sure it's just luck. No one is actually searching for the stuff it's just recommend to them.

    this is not yet stupid, etc.
    I read from my local newspaper stated in china or where I forget . Just stream sleeping live and instant a lot views some more is a guy sleeping. Of course is not naked and is not handsome , a bit plump . Whereas some streamers they does act stupid to draw viewers but still need to put effort to act like clown and stupid unlike this dude , just stream himself sleeping .

    My guess is most(some) of it is bought, google ads arbitrage kind of thing. The views/comments ration is too low. Plus, the comments look worldwide, implying cheap ww bought or dumb traffic. 30m in 40 days organic? Get outta here

    Might work with the right niche. And yeah most people open youtube to watch dumb shit, and its dangerous to assume that what sells is smart stuff, usually the opposite is true, makes sense when you think about the IQ curve and population.

    EDIT:
    On second note, these videos look like satisfying videos(sort of like visual asmr)

    Yeah, it's definitely not search traffic. It's not about ranking at all for this type of videos, just suggested.

    Any videos with the ability to spark curiosity has the potential to pull a lot of traffic as they have a huge potential to go viral, people will share these kind of videos a lot as well as engage in comments and discussion thus propping them up to the recommended section of Youtube for folks who frequently watch this type of content.

    I am never looking to watch these videos, but as it turns out, I started watching this one and had to stay until the end lol, I guess I am not alone (as of now 31 million+ views WOW).
