    ok... this is a HUGE marketing mystery to me...!

    why the heck does fred have so many subscribers???

    Code:
    http://www.youtube.com/user/Fred
    his sound is shrilly... i dont find his jokes funny... why is that so??

    i dont market on youtube.. nether do i plan to... just like to know what people like... and i seriously dont understand this!!

    he DOES NOT HAVE A WEBSITE OR ASK PPL TO SUBSCRIBE! i mean why why why?

    is is coz he was one of the first to start a channel? really would like to know...

    i think it would be a obvious thing for somebody working on youtube... but since i dont know nything bout that field so m asking!

    Because thirteen-year old girls actually do find him funny and attractive.

    because the world becomes less classy each day, people become increasingly stupid, and creativity decreases at an exponential rate. Just look around, you can find millions of things that are friggin retarded yet people buy into it. I think it's just a simply mixture of that and group mentality. Pathetic. But we do make money off these types of people.

    I hear ya. I just turned 20 myself. There is no limit to human stupidity lol. Have you kept in contact with any of the people from high school and seen how crappy their lives are? lol i can't count how many people are pregnant, do hard drugs, or just have fucked up lives in some other way. Seriously, it's almost sad how many people are actually losers but you never really notice it until they enter the adult world. Too many followers with no critical thinking skills = money for us though.

    Sometimes it makes me think that corporations lobby against education in order to make people dumber, and thus easier to market to. If a corporation's main goal is to make money then I guarantee someone has thought of it before.

    God that kid is ANNOYING.

    I want to punch him in the face and steal his Youtube account.

    Maybe it has something to do with that ASCII man named Fred telling people to go to his channel. Unless that ASCII man has nothing to do with this guy.

    Either way, you could probably make some ASCII man and have him "tell everyone to subscribe to your channel and re-post this so ASCII Guy can infect youtube with awesomeness"

    He does have a website and he promotes his own clothing line, just adding my two-cents.

    trust me no prof in a MBA college would understand the concept behind all this!

    i dont think any guru in marketing can even guess what ppl want online correctly seeing this kid becoming a legend on youtube!

    it just goes above me... no marketing book i ever read mentioned something like this!! and wtf is happening... are humans really becoming dumber with the advent of new technologies... as has been predicted by most science fiction movies??

    seeing this i really feel we are...! i actually find old classics better than the movies that are coming up nowadays!..... just saw wolverine.. it made no sense what-so-ever!

    Why understand it? It's just one of those mysteries.

    A better question is how could a person JV with this guy to make both of you

    more money, maybe something to compliment his clothing line? Like vibrating

    disposable panty liners? LOL

    Heres his site...

    Code:
    hxxp://fredfigglehorn.com/
    He got so many subscribers because his videos went viral (dismissing the conspiracy theories).

    Having Stuped people in Internet will never give us a chance to make money simply our work is based in some logic .. with non logic person will never find a way for success .. Many of us in the forum doen't know how to make 1$ / day and have in mind a load of knoweldge .. success come with action ... not buy being smart ... many people in this life are wealthy but they are stuped ... even his success was based in any fact or any chance ... rember always life it is self is stuped

    But colleges are more privatized. Why did Bush and so many presidents/governments before cut education funding and keep it so slow. Clearly, any smart person would see that investing in the future is the best thing you can do.. If a president can condone half of the immoral shit that we hear about all the time, then why can't they be taking bribes for keeping education low? Just something to think about.

    And yes, I think the movies have predicted it pretty well. Humans are very easy to predict. Just give them what they need and they will follow (if they are followers, which they most likely are), and if they don't need it just make them think they need it, It's not that hard.

    And yes, humans are getting dumber, but they're also getting smarter. It's just polarizing. The smart get smarter and the dumb get dumber. I think because smart people only breed with other smart people (mostly) and dumb people with other dumb ones. People hook up with people in their own level of society. Remember, natural selection made humans smart. Now we are a species practicing artificial selection, which is better if done right, but it's not always done that way aha.

    The sad thing is that there are too many people on this planet, and I can guarantee that a huge amount (maybe 30%-70%) of people are going to die depending on which path we follow. Right now it looks like it's going to be a high number. A disease will probably kill a lot of people, and if not then probably a war. If people need to kill to survive then they will.

    It's sad but population control is a good thing at the moment.. That's why I don't know if things like cigarettes are that bad after all.. Makes you think.

    In general I think youtube is stupid, the only time I go on there is to market or when some one else is showing me something. I thinks its stupid how everybody on there wants subs, its like the rep system over there.

    For example, the Fred comment box. There are hundreds of people there every second begging for subs. They are not doing it to make money, they are just doing it because they think its cool.

    Youtube almost makes dp look smart :eek:
