    I can't believe that the talking orange video channel is making almost $300k a year!!! Time to work on my YouTube channel.

    "I don't think they're actually making money. If I read this correctly, this is the money they're making for youtube in advertising costs for the ads youtube puts on their video pages."

    If you had read the article you would have noted that these are estimates of revenue..and they have taken into account the amount that Youtube makes and used that as an estimate for the earnings..as these are all profit sharing channels. When you try to be a smartass next time..make sure that you understand what your taking about.

    Regardless of the exact numbers, this article shows us a lot about what the majority of people on youtube are looking for. Most of it looks like comedy type stuff.

    The guy that is listed #1 Shane Dawson said that the article is wrong. Posted via his twitter page. Look it up Shanedawson.

    The thing that surprised me the most is that I thought that the top channels would be the ones with hot chicks on it. I was actually gonna hire a sexy girl to host some youtube videos and try and sell some cpa promotions around it.

    When I read the misleading (and incorrect) title I thought I was going to be reading new about how people were making money uploading videos to YouTube. Instead it was a time-wasting load of hooey that wasn't worth the download (big shock).

    And going by what Adam S. wrote, it seems that YT is the one getting the cash. I bet he's smart enough to know the difference between "your" and "you're"...

    Blame the title on Yahoo. I don't see how you could have figured that this was money made from uploading videos to Youtube from the title(that's why it's good to read before jumping to conclusions)..but whatever. It was an interesting in my opinion and if I had found it a "time waster" then I certainly wouldn't have wasted additional time replying to this post. As far as the accuracy of the figures in the article goes I have no idea.

    ..And I'm sure that Adam knows the difference between "your" and "you're" --as well as the difference between "news" and "new".

    Anyways..even if these figures are way off I'm sure that everybody in this article is making some good bank.

    When you think about, they're not making that much.

    I don't think Fred is even the slightest bit funny. He's annoying and has that stupid ass voice that makes me wanna rip my ears off.

    How people actually watch and like his videos just blows my mind. I guess it shows the intelligence level of the majority of the population.

    Oh yeah and he just got a movie made about him too on Nickelodeon or some shit.....
