    ^ Has about 9m views on Facebook and 1m on Youtube. Was released in late June; one of my friends just shared it on FB. Product is an extremely simple white label rebill. Everything looks exactly like all of the other similar product out there, but people will buy it because they think that's what Dan Bilzerian uses. Damn if that isn't the perfect product to promote as that guy. Keeps his reputation solid (he's not "selling out") and just funnels his social followers right into paid followers.

    I saw this and was impressed as well. I feel it is similar to using a parasite method of ranking, riding of anothers coat tails. I'm sure that the above business's marketing dude will be getting a few pats on the back. Very clever.

    SMH. This couldn't be more true. Taking a trend and branding it in an even more trendy way.
