    You'd be surprised at who actually buys views, I mean a recent example just a few days back I was contacted by a well known YouTube partner for views (I was whoring the mobile views)and I've even done them for a few semi-famous artists signed with Sony.

    So just imagine who the "big boys" have actually done views for lol
