How to Make FAT Stacks With Mini-Videos on YouTube

Niche Knowledge #5: Braso

Screenshot of Braso’s YouTube channel:

To say that this latest niche I stumbled across blew my mind would be a massive understatement. If you work a dreadful 9–5, prepare to be downright demoralized after finding out how this guy makes giant gobs of money with this clever, simple niche.

Or perhaps you’ll be inspired instead. 🙂

Whether you loathe or love Andrew Tate, the fact is, the man gets ATTENTION. And attention equals dollars.

Enter a simple little YouTube channel called “Braso,” devoted entirely to “Daily Tate videos & commentary!”

Yep, that’s pretty much it. Let’s dig in.


Braso uploads micro vids of and about Andrew Tate multiple times a day. As in about every 2–3 hours. In just the last 24 hours, the channel has put up 9 videos.

These are NOT YouTube shorts, mind you. These videos are posted on the main channel. They’re just really short and to the point.

Each video is generally only about 1–2 minutes long, with some as long as six minutes or more. Footage is cut up from news clips and videos from Tate’s social media, with a sprinkling of voice over commentary.

Thumbnails are clickbaity, emphasizing even the slightest bit of Tate news as ultra controversial. Often focusing on ONE particular news item or development.

What’s most interesting about Braso is how the channel can take one tiny bit of video of Tate and essentially recycle it endlessly.

The brief clip of Tate walking around shirtless in his house right after release from prison, for instance, has been used in DOZENS of uploads. Clips of Tate and his brother Tristan leaving the jailhouse surrounded by media has also been “churned” endlessly.


Now for the mind blowing part. Check out this screenshot from Social Blade and prepare to be gobsmacked.

That’s right. This “little” channel of only 220,000 subscribers rakes in somewhere between $5k and an eye-popping $80k a MONTH posting about Andrew Tate. Even if that estimate were closer to the lower end, say, about $20k a month, that’s still a staggering number.

Broken down even further, that comes to anywhere between a few hundred to a few thousand dollars PER DAY.

Views range in the few thousands all the way up to the millions. Comments are in the hundreds, even for videos that are only a few hours old, proving that the Tate Army remains an active, growing community.

Braso IS monetized through Google Adsense. I checked myself in an icognito browser, getting a brief six-second ad for Purdue Global, an online university.

Video uploads also contain what may possibly be an affiliate link to a Tate-related website called that purports to teach “how to make money in the digital age.”

Clearly, the Braso channel acts as a sales funnel into the Tate universe.

Niche Deets

Braso certainly benefits from the controersial figure of Andrew Tate. Especially in the wake of his recent release from jail in Romania.

But like any figures of controversy, Braso gets additional traffic bonuses anytime Andrew Tate trends in the news. Which is kind of often.

Even if you’re a Tater Hater, it’s worth studying this channel and gleaning insights on digital marketing. It takes advantage of waning attention spans and increasing competition on YouTube by making very SHORT to-the-point videos. Braso is all about quantity, not quality.

This “micro-video” strategy has several advantages. It allows for faster uploads. More uploads overall. And it constantly feeds the YouTube algorithm. Which means the likelihood of a video landing and getting virally spread increases faster.

It’s the shotgun method, so to speak. Eventually, when enough videos start to hit, the subscriber count begins to balloon. Then most videos get thousands of views regardless of the algo. Then it’s off to the races. And now this channel is making close to the average annual income in the United States in ONE month.

Another thing this channel does very smartly, is center itself around a very SPECIFIC topic — Andrew Tate, of course. Take a look at how the videos are titled in this snapshot:

Source: Screenshot from Braso YouTube channel:

ALL of them contain “Andrew Tate” in the title. It may seem like a small thing, but repeating the subject constantly can help you “hack” the YouTube algo, and make you rank better for a particular keyword.

You could do the same thing with other figures, or other topics, and likely achieve better results, no matter your niche of choice.


Braso provides an effective goldmine of a model to study and learn from for how to create a viral video platform around a given topic. Even when the niche is already crowded. Tate is only one of the most popular people on the internet. You’d think there’d be no way to break in on a channel about him. Yet Braso did, by utilizing a smart strategy:

  • Pick a popular/trending topic
  • Make ultra-short videos about the topic
  • Write highly focused titles that always name the topic
  • Reuse clips and news footage (churning)
  • Make simple clickbait thumbnails
  • Upload constantly and regularly

Could this clever and very strategic YouTube model work on other popular and trending topics, and get similar, highly lucrative results? Could you do this on, say, Elon Musk, Donald Trump, Tom Cruise, or others? I’d say there’s a good possibility. What do you think?

Niche Knowledge #4: YellowFlash 2

Source: YellowFlash 2 YouTube Channel:

Imagine if you could make a substantial living talking about Spider-Man, the Avengers, the latest adult cartoons, anime, or pretty much anything big in pop culture news.

We are truly living in the “Age of the Geek.” When it’s possible to make a six-figure income sharing news, gossip, not to mention a good bit of outrage over the latest movie and TV show news.

I’m talking about YellowFlash 2, a prominent YouTube channel in the pop culture news niche.


YellowFlash 2, named after the popular Flash villain, obviously, pumps out A LOT of daily videos about the latest developments in the entertainment industry. Specifically focusing on controversial, trending topics, and breaking news. Common subjects are Marvel movie updates, behind the scenes studio drama, celebrity meltdowns, casting shenanigans, trailer reactions, TV show ratings, and many other things.

Video updates are usually delivered with an acerbic style with a bit of sarcasm and attitude. YellowFlash 2 is very passionate about the subject matter he covers, and doesn’t shy away from speaking his mind very bluntly and honestly.

The videos are pretty simplistic. They are basically just a voice-over from the channel creator, with a slideshow-style presentation of web articles off his screen. The emphasis is more about quantity and volume, while staying on the cutting edge of the latest developments.

The channel averages about five uploads a day. Thumbnails are VERY click-baity, featuring bleeped expletives and photoshopped faces. Titles are generally meant to trigger outrage and other emotions.

Also, I’d be remiss not to point out that YellowFlash 2 generally comes from a center-right perspective, often criticizing “woke” productions, or targeting reviled figures such as Mindy Kaling or Meghan Markle, whenever they trend in the news.

At the time of this writing, YellowFlash 2 has 400,000 subscribers and over 3,400 videos uploaded to its channel.


YellowFlash 2 has multiple streams of revenue. There’s Google Adsense revenue, of course. The chart below shows it makes anywhere from $1,300 to as high as $21,600 a month from Adsense. The entertainment niche doesn’t pay the most when it comes RPM (revenue per thousand impressions). It may only range from $2.00 to $4.00, which after YouTube takes its cut, may only amount to a few dollars or so.

Source: Screenshow from Social Blade:

But for a channel like this, it’s better to look at it from a daily income perspective. Here’s a screenshot of its earnings by video over the last few days, from 3/20 up until its latest upload as of this writing:

Source: Social Blade:

As you can see, YellowFlash 2 averages somewhere around $100+ per video. At five uploads a day, that’s $500+ per day in revenue. Just from Google Adsense. Not a bad haul for a one-man entertainment news operation.

Some videos do a lot better than others traffic and income-wise depending on the subjects and whether something is hot or trending. Some have even pulled in upwards of a few thousand dollars. Most of the videos tend to get a reliable 50k–70k views, showing the channel has a strong base of subscribers who regularly tune-in to watch.

Like many YouTubers with a strong following, YellowFlash 2 has an online merch store selling everything from t-shirts, coffee mugs, hoodies, stickers, to smartphone covers.

However, I want to point out something pretty important about this channel. It also has a channel membership, ranging from $1.99 to $9.99 a month. Channel memberships can be very valuable and lucrative. Especially for channels that have a strong community following. I couldn’t find any official revenue numbers for memberships. But it’s not hard to imagine this bringing in several thousand more dollars a month. Even if there are only 500 members, that’s a minimum of $1000 a month, and possibly more if some of those members are paying for the higher tier status.

YellowFlash 2 also had a Patreon page previously, but this seems to have gone offline, or been taken down.

Niche Deets

As indicated earlier, the news entertainment/gossip/outrage niche is all about quantity over quality. It’s about clickbait. It’s about following the latest breaking news and chasing the hottend trends. This is by no means a passive “hobby channel.” It’s a full-time job.

If this sounds like a niche you’d want to try, you’d better be prepared to hustle and pump out videos constantly. You need to stay on the pulse of what’s happening as it happens.

You also need to be able to present the news with a bit of style, and be willing to employ some emotional manipulation. YellowFlash 2 is not a popular Youtube channel just because it delivers the latest news. Anyone can do that. It’s also popular because it appeals to an audience of comic book and movie fans that agree with its “anti-woke” (whatever that may mean) ethos. That audience may interesect with the red pill community, MGTOWers, and other communities that generally skew younger and male.

I point this out not because I necessarily agree, follow, or are part of those communities. But because it’s important to understand the TYPE OF AUDIENCE you are trying to appeal to with your content. You have to think about your potential audience’s perspective. Ideally, you want to start a channel that matches your personality and beliefs, and hopefully find an audience of like-minded folks. As YouTube shows constantly, there’s a community out there for just about everything and everyone.


Click-bait news, controversy, and hot takes are not for everyone. But like YellowFlash 2 demonstrates, this can be a very lucrative niche to get into for the right personality. Given the tone and style you portray, it’s probably worth considering using a pseudonym and staying faceless.

Another thing to consider, is that whenever you are straying into the world of controversial topics and celebrities, you run the risk of attracting a lot of negativity and nastiness. Meaning things that can get your channel demonetized, suspended, or even outright banned. This is especially true if you are taking certain political or social stances. Even just sharing some types of news can bring out the haters, no matter how milquetoast you are. YouTube is getting increasingly strict about these sorts of things. But opposing sides have also been known to brigade enemy channels, getting them deleted, and their owners canceled or doxxed. So beware.

All the risks aside, news content of all stripes is only going to continue in the direction of video, especially from community-specific channels like this one. If this sounds like the type of niche for you, there’s certainly lots of room for more voices.

Make $5000+ a Month With This Fun, Musical Niche

Niche Knowledge #3: White Bat Audio


Synthwave music has become a popular subgenre of original music on YouTube.

Synthwave is electronic, sort of like modern techno music, generally free of or with limited lyrics, that reflects a certain theme or mood, and often meant to evoke the sci-fi, horror, or action movie genres. It contains themes such as “80’s crime thriller,” “cyberpunk,” or “dark dystopian.”

It’s great to listen to while exercising, studying, getting into the “zone,” or even just relaxing.


White Bat Audio writes great, original, royalty free and copyright safe synthwave compositions. The artist Karl Casey asks that they be credited “Karl Casey @ White Bat Audio” if their music is used. White Bat Audio’s music can’t be used for remixes, re-recordings with vocals, or simply re-uploaded under another name. However, their music can be used for things like YouTube videos, livestreams, video games, and podcasts, with proper attribution. This even includes videos/projects that are monetized.

Whole albums and songs are available for download on their website, as well as on sites like Spotify and Bandcamp.

White Bat Audio is an active producer, generally uploading content every few days. Their videos come with striking, possibly AI-generated artwork, that makes for very bold and clickable thumbnails, that reflect the mood/genre of the music.

Fo example, here’s a screenshot from a video titled “Cyberpunk Darksynth Remix — Brainscan.”


As of now, the channel has 570 uploads, and 135,000 subscribers. Its most popular video, a two-hour Synthwave mix called “L.A. Sunset” has 1.8 million views.


According to AK Records, a recording studio based in Albania, musical artists can earn about $6 USD per 1000 impressions on YouTube, from Google Adsense ads. Artists can also generate income through YouTube’s Content ID, which only works for original music. Content ID automatically scans for whenever someone uploads a video using an artist’s music, and then pays the artist a cut from that video’s ad revenue.

Social Blade estimates that White Bat Audio currently makes anywhere from $344-$5,500 a month just from Adsense revenue, and upwards of $66,100 a year. But that’s only one part of the overall revenue potential one can generate in a music niche.


In addition to selling their music in downloadable packs, White Bat Audio also sells clothing merch on their website.

The channel solicits donations to a PayPal address on its videos.

Interestingly, it does not make use of affiliate links to music or related products. Companies like Bose, and chain stores like Target have affiliate programs, which could potentially provide another source of income for an artist like White Bat Audio. But the channel appears content with its current monetization set-up.

Even without taking advantage of affiliate links, it’s likely the channel till makes a strong, livable income from its music. White Bat Audio uploads frequently enough to indicate the creator either works on the channel full-time, or at least as a dedicated hobby. And there’s no putting a price on the satisfaction that comes from seeing your work used and enjoyed by others.

Niche Deets

Obviously, the synthwave music niche is not for everyone. You have to be able to write music using software or on instruments. But it does show that talented musicians and artists can find a strong and lucrative following on YouTube, no matter how “small” or unusual their particular niche. I had no idea the synthwave subgenre even existed until very recently, and since then, I’ve become a fan.

However, like many other content niches, finding success on YouTube in the music space requires consistency and patience. White Bat Audio has been uploading since June 13, 2017, but only saw significant growth after about three years. Check out the charts below to see what I mean:


Views and subscribers didn’t start to ramp up until around late 2020, early 2021. Unlike other niches like cryptocurrency, that can experience sudden massive upticks in popularity whenever Bitcoin starts mooning or a crypto news story goes viral, the growth of a musical subgenre is likely to be more steady and incremental.

And, of course, YouTube is not the only platform in the game. Spotify has a massive user base. According to Ditto Music, Spotify pays anywhere between $0.003 to $0.005 per stream. That’s $3-$5 per 1000 views. There’s the potential for “double-dipping” revenue by cross-posting between YouTube and Spotify, and other platforms as well. Carl Kasey also has almost 62,000 monthly listeners on Spotify in addition to his large YouTube base. And some of his songs, like “Hackers,” have almost 900,000 streams. Even at the low end of the scale, at $0.003 per stream, that might equate to around $2,700 for just the one song, on Spotify alone.

Looking at White Bat Audio’s YouTube, Spotify, download, merch, and PayPal donation income, it’s not hard to see the artist bringing in a six-figure annual income. If the brand used affiliate links, that income could potentially be way higher.


Synthwave may not be the most lucrative niche to get into speaking strictly in business terms, but that’s besides the point. White Bat Audio makes great original music that millions of people enjoy, and offers their music for free for other content providers to use in their projects.

Based on the views and subscribers charts above, the future looks bright for the channel, and for others in the same space. If you’re a musician or an artist of any kind, YouTube is a powerful platform to use for distribution and exposure. Securing a reliable income may take some time. But once you’ve built even a small audience, there are all kinds of opportunties to leverage that following and become a succesful, working artist.

Make $10k+ a Month Talking About Cryptocurrency

Niche Knowledge #2: Altcoin Daily


By most accounts, crypto is still in a bear market. But not if you’re in the business of doing daily updates on the crypto space.

Niche Knowledge, the series devoted to exploring lucrative business niches that real people have found real success in, next takes a look at the rapidly growing YouTube channel Altcoin Daily.


This is a channel that I, like many others, discovered around the beginning of the last crypto bull market — roughly late 2020. But since then, the channel is still chugging along nicely.

Altcoin Daily, as the name suggests, uploads daily news recaps, opinions, and interviews with experts about all things cryptocurrency. The channel was started by brothers Aaron and Austin Arnold back in January, 2018. That was back in the depths of the last crypto recession, when Bitcoin fell as low as around $3,400 a coin, and Ethereum was as low as $85. Talk about starting at the “worst” possible time. But like many businesses that become uber successful, Altcoin Daily took advantage of the crypto freeze, and began building its brand.

Since its start the channel has grown to almost 1.3 million subscribers, and become a powerful voice in the crypto space. The brothers have interviewed the likes of Raoul Paul, other popular YouTubers like BitBoy Crypto, Benjamin Cowen, Robert Breedlove, and many others.

Their videos provide not only timely updates, but important context that makes the high-tech crypto world accessible to everyday listeners. They are big crypto investors themselves, and have demonstrated a keen insight into the space, offering neutral, largely hype-free analysis.


According to Social Blade, Altcoin Daily currently makes anywhere between an estimated $953 — $15,200 per month, or $11,400 — $182,900 per year, from Adsense.

Source: Social Blade

However, like many crypto channels, Altcoin Daily utilizes affiliate links a great deal, which certainly adds significantly to the site’s bottom line. Affiliate deals include companies like Coinbase, Ledger, and events like Outer Edge and the convention Bitcoin 2023 being held in Miami Beach.

The only merch the channel currently sells is a simple pint glass, through Spring. Typically brands try to hawk t-shirts, hats, and other apparel. But Altcoin Daily seems content with keeping things basic on the merch side.

Altcoin Daily also has a significant following on Twitter that nearly matches its YouTube subscription army. The brand has 1.3 million followers, and tweets out on a daily basis.

Niche Deets

The videos on the channel reliably get tens of thousands of views. Usually ranging between 50k to the low 100k mark. Interestingly, none of their videos have yet to crack the million view mark. Their most watched video is “How Much Cardano (ADA) Do You Need to Become a Cryptocurrency Millionaire in 2021?” featuring Bitboy Crypto, with 726,000 views. This proves you don’t need videos to go viral and get millions of views if you’re trying to make a go of the YouTube game. You just need to pump out content consistently, and let the YT algorithm do its work.

Of course, it helps if you’re in a good niche like cryptocurrency, which is a space that’s only going to grow more over time.

Altcoin Daily’s thumbnails are eye-catching and somewhat clickbaity, making sure to usually include a human face. The YouTube algo tends to like seeing faces in the thumbnail.

Source: Screenshot of Altcoin Daily

The channel’s stats over the last few years tell an interesting story. Here’s a screenshot of a chart from Social Blade:

Source: Social Blade

As you can see, during the end of the last crypto bear market, through the end of 2020, Altcoin Daily experienced steady but largely flat growth. Then when the bull market kicked in demonstrably at the end of the year, and the beginning of 2021, the channel hockey sticked upward. But since the the boom cycle ended, Altcoin Daily has plateaued into its slow and steady rate of growth.

These charts show the strength and the weakness of the crypto news niche. Bear markets are tougher to grow in. Bull markets may be easier to find traction, but they last for briefer periods. So if you’re looking to start a channel or site devoted to cryptocurrency, you’d better be prepared to stick it out for the long haul. Especially now, with the asset class still down, and a looming possible recession and near-certain continued interest rate hikes on the horizon.

From an SEO/keyword angle, a crypto channel gives you the opportunity to rank for brand new coins and tokens just as they’re released, provided you’re staying up to date with the latest news. Imagine if you’re among the first, or even the first, to break a story on a new crypto project. And say that project takes off down the road. You might be the beneficiary of that rising tide, catching some of the traffic that builds off the growth of that project. Nowadays, it’s a tall task to rank for well-known high cap coins. But that doesn’t mean you can’t keyword capture the more niche projects out there before they potentially get big.


Overall, this a channel I like for its plain, soft-spoken, and reliable uploads. As of now, Altcoin Daily has posted over 2,000 videos. That shows remarkable dedication. But the end result has been a channel that thus far has gained 158 million views, and counting.

While it’s impossible to know exactly how much the channel makes from affiliate sales, between those and Adsense revenue (and sales of pint glasses), it’s not hard to imagine Altcoin Daily making several hundred thousand dollars a year. That’s impressive when you consider that many big news outlets are laying off employees and struggling to even stay afloat. Not bad for two brothers who started a simple channel talking about their favorite topic cryptocurrency just five years ago.

Become a Millionaire Posting Cop Cam Videos

Niche Knowledge #1: Code Blue Cam


Welcome to the first edition of a new series I’m starting called Niche Knowledge. A series devoted to covering all sorts of fascinating and lucrative business niches where real people have found huge success.

These niches won’t be only limited to online ventures, but I’ll be concentrating mainly on YouTube and other web content at least to start. I’m fascinated by the idea of ordinary people starting a simple business like a website that becomes worth millions. It’s something I always wished I could do. I was always told you had to pick a specific niche if you wanted to succeed. But I could never just pick one. So I decided why not investigate all of them? Or at least as many as I can.

I hope you enjoy these niche profiles, and become inspired to start a business of your own. Each profile will have an overview of the business, how it works, and of course a look into how much money it makes. I’d like to perhaps do interviews with creators in the future also, but we’ll see.

First up is a YouTube channel I discovered a few months ago and have enjoyed watching: Code Blue Cam.


Code Blue Cam obtains primarily cop cam footage through Public Records Requests, according to its About page. The channel is not affiliated with law enforcement, and sometimes fees are required to acquire police footage.

According to the website Social Blade, which tracks statistics for YouTube channels, Twitter, Twitch, TikTok, and others, Code Blue Cam currently has 155 uploads. Many of the videos come from police encounters and arrests with DUI suspects, police car and foot chases, drug busts, fugitives on the run, domestic violence, and even occassionally a celebrity confrontation. The video of Odell Beckham Jr getting kicked off an airplane has racked up 3.6 million views, for instance. It’s all pretty exciting stuff.

It’s not hard to see why this channel has found a big audience. Even after the TV show COPS got cancelled in 2020, people are still obsessed with watching the long arm of the law catch suspects. Code Blue Cam’s most popular video is one titled “Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Run From the Cops,” with 19 million views. Most uploads are in the million plus range. The thumbnails are typically just screenshots from the footage. No emojis or click bait. The video titles tend to be pretty straightforward, with sometimes a tinge of humor.

As of now, Code Blue Cam has 1.36 million subscribers. While it started back in 2015, it has seen the majority of its uploads and success in just the last few years. That’s remarkable growth in just a short period of time.



So, how has Code Blue Cam monetized its success? Obviously, the channel makes an income through Adsense. Social Blade estimates the channel makes anywhere from $7,200 — $115,000 a month, and $86,300 to $1,400,000 a year.

In addition to Adsense, Code Blue Cam has a Patreon page, with 491 patrons kicking in $5 (the only tier available) a month. That adds up to an additional $2,455 a month, and potentially $29,460 a year. The channel also sells t-shirts and other merch through its website. In addition, some of its videos include paid sponsors and affiliate links.

Even if the Adsense income is somewhere in the middle of Social Blade’s estimate, at around $500,000 a year, when you add in all the other revenue sources, Code Blue Cam has done quite well in the law enforcement video niche. This is no doubt due in part to regularly posting cleanly edited and often high-definition videos, as well as the channel’s dedicated, justice-seeking community. Freshly posted videos often generate thousands of comments very quickly.

Niche Deets

Important to note: Not only do police videos draw in a lot of views, they tend to be watched thoroughly due to several attractive elements. The escalatation in the encounter that often leads to a chase. The final arrest. And in some cases, the suspect’s freakout after being placed in the back seat of a squad car or at the jail. It creates a nice “story arc” of sorts, with rising tension, conflict expection, payoff, and spectacle. Important ingredients that keep people watching.

From an SEO perspective, if a cop cam video you post ranks for a particular news story, that has the possibility of generating a lot of organic views from Google over the long haul. Think of the Odell Beckham Jr. video I mentioned earlier. When that story broke, videos showing the incident almost certainly got a huge spike in views. Even smaller channels likely got a nice bump. Afterall, you want to not only post video content that an audience will want, but will keep you relevant in the search rankings.

The cop cam niche also has another nice element from a creator perspective. You don’t have to show your face. In fact, you don’t have to share any personal identifying information whatsoever. Code Blue Cam even uses a voice over artist to narrate portions of the videos.

This niche allows you to draw on an endless amount of content. There will always be arrests and police chases, unfortunately. These sorts of videos have a good chance for virality.

Another reason for Code Blue Cam’s success is in its strong and distinct branding. You know exactly what you’re going to get just from the logo and name. If you’re into watching cop cam videos, there’s a good chance you’ll watch a video in your feed when it pops up, and maybe even subscribe.


Code Blue Cam shows no signs of slowing down. It demonstrates that the cop cam niche is a strong and very lucrative one, that pretty much anyone can start.

What do you think of Code Blue Cam and the cop cam niche in general? Is it one you’ve ever considered starting yourself? What else do you think is responsible for its success?

Thanks for reading.

People are Cashing in With This Controversial But Super Easy (and Still Growing)YouTube Niche

Photo by Andrea Piacquadio from Pexels:

Man, it’s 2022 and hustling a substantial side income has never been so easy.

How easy are we talking here? How about watching movies and TV easy? That’s not too hard to do, is it? I mean, it doesn’t get much easier than that, except maybe for sleeping. And no way would anyone catch big bucks while catching some big Zzzzs, right?

Oh, wait, nevermind. Someone did just that.

Anyway…this niche does not JUST involve watching movies and TV. It’s also about reacting and providing some commentary, and preferably doing so at least somewhat humorously, and maybe with a little personality.

That’s right. I’m talking about the Movie/TV Reaction niche on YouTube.

People are recording themselves reacting to everything from new episodes of TV shows like Better Call Saul, to classic action films like Terminator 2: Judgment Day, to even recordings of kid’s show hosts. Watch this young woman almost have a meltdown watching a message from Steve Burns, former host of Blues Clues.

By the way, if you prefer to watch someone else react to a video from a TV host who retired decades ago, there are a dozen others for your nostalgia-mongering pleasure. Seriously. And they all have thousands to even tens of thousands of views. That’s bonkers.

Really, just type in the title of any movie/TV show or any type of media into YouTube and then put “reaction” afterward, and there are bound to be tens to even hundreds of accounts. Many of which have tens of thousands to even hundreds of thousands of subscribers, and fresh uploads. That means they’re literally getting paid to watch movies and TV.

But wait. How come YouTube hasn’t banned reaction channels for posting copyrighted content?

Obviously you can’t just upload a whole movie or show to YouTube and throw in some occasional observations due to YouTube’s copyright rules. So reaction YouTubers skirt around this issue with good ol’ fair use. Shaun Poore, a popular blogger and software developer, provides some non-lawyerly guidance about fair use, which shows how these types of channels have proliferated in the last few years due to this loophole:

1. Playing an entire episode of Rick and Morty and videotaping yourself laughing isn’t fair use. At a minimum, you need to be providing serious commentary on the episode.

2. The video’s focus needs to be on you and your commentary, not the copyrighted material.

3. You should always be on the screen.

4. The copyrighted material shouldn’t be full screen or played in its entirety.

The reaction video racket is not without its risks. Which is why you’ll see YouTubers blur out the movie or TV show, or only show short segments, to avoid YouTube demonetizing them, or striking their account down altogether.

To be clear, if you’re interested in jumping into this reaction niche, make sure you do your own due diligence on copyright and fair use, and be sure to always follow all of YouTube’s rules.

Of course, this low-effort easy-peasy type of “content” creation has attracted its share of haters and controversy. Redditor KingLordship posted this in /r/NewTubers:

I just really hate the fact that people spend days to create something then a reaction channel sits there and says two words throughout the video, gets monetised, paid and gets a crap ton of views for no effort at all.

Far be it from me to argue with a guy named “KingLordship.”

Then there’s this dude Tanmay Pendse from Quora, a self-described “High Tier Cinephile,” who responds to the question, “Why are there so many ‘reaction channels’ on Youtube?” with this bit of blunt honesty:

This is the stupidest from these trends. “Reaction Videos” they suck.

It is literally someone sits in front of camera & recording the reaction of what they are watching.


And Tanmay said that three years ago in March, 2019. Poor guy must be raging 24/7 now, as the reaction video trend has only increased like ten-fold since.

Hey, no one said side hustling had to be hard or contribute to the advancement of society. Don’t hate the player, hate the game. Just make sure to record yourself reacting to the game with outrage, so you too can cash in on this still growing niche.

Besides, science says it’s not your fault you like reaction videos. This 2016 article says “mirror neurons” in our brains could be responsible for triggering empathetic feelings. So when you’re watching your favorite YouTuber react to Freddy Krueger ripping a teenager apart, it’s like you’re bonding. Well, sort of. These feelings help to give (or at least simulate) a sense of communal involvment, even acceptance. The idea that “You’re just like me,” because you like the same movie/TV show I do.

In other words, watching a reaction video gives the illusory sense that you’re watching and enjoying something right alongside someone else. A sort of self-induced hypnosis form of socialization. It’s no surprise that many reaction channels saw explosive growth during the Covid-19 quarantine. Many of the accounts I examined for this article started around 2020, or saw a hockey stick spurt in viewership around that time.

Reaction channels have been around almost since YouTube’s inception, afterall. Starting out with the infamous maze scare prank that was big stuff back in the day. But it goes back even farther than that. Remember America’s Funniest Home Videos? As host Tom Bergeron used to say, “If you get it on tape, you could get it in cash.” Words to live by.

Now that we understand the history, the science, and the controvery behind this reaction channel phenomenon, let’s get down to what’s most important here:


Do reaction channels make money? That’s a Kool-Aid Man-level “Oh, yeah!”

I examined five of these reaction channels, ranging in size from small to medium. From only a few tens of thousands of subs to a few hundred thousand. Making sure to pick ones that were concentrated solely on “reaction.” Many reaction channels incorporate lengthy reviews of the movies or shows watched. I tried to stick with ones that were more “spur of the moment.” Review channels like Red Letter Media or Chris Stuckmann are obviously a seperate niche altogether. I also did not include movie news-centric channels that only have some reaction aspect, like Beyond the Trailer.

I also tried to pick channels with “average” people, as opposed to people with colorful “YouTube personalities.” I wanted to see what kind of success a “typical” person might encounter with one of these channels. Of course, the more engaging and friendly you are on camera, the more likely you are to attract subs, even for a low-effort niche like reaction videos. And if you’re an attractive female, you’ll have an even bigger advantage. It’s not to say anyone can’t land pay dirt kicking back and watching flicks. As I found, this niche has a huge mix of different types. But the two keys I found are that being funny and genuine led to the best results.

It’s even better if there’s a bit of a culture clash, or “fish out of water” angle in your reaction videos. Take Ashleigh Burton of Millennial Movie Monday, a “millennial who has been sheltered from every classic movie you can think of.” Ashley first started posting regularly in February, 2020, and offers lively reactions on her channel. Here’s a screenshot of her Social Blade details:

For an active two-year old channel with very simple content, that’s not a bad haul from Google Adsense. But as I found, Adsense is hardly the best revenue stream for many of these reaction YouTubers. Check out what Ashley’s bringing in with Patreon:

Patreon gives content creators a chance to earn an additional revenue stream by offering their fans a monthly membership. From what I found in my search, the most lucrative Patreon accounts offered exclusive perks, like behind-the-scenes insights, early access to new content, polls to vote on which movies to watch, or livestreams. Just looking at some of the Patreon accounts was very instructive. If you want the best results, you need to be active about not just producing new content regularly, but also building a community with your fans.

So, if we take the average of Social Blade’s estimated monthly earnings, $2,283, and add in the Patreon revenue, we come to $10,236 a month. That’s over $122,000 a year for watching movies. That doesn’t count any donations Ashleigh’s fans send to her P.O. Box. Ashleigh posts a Monthly Live Unboxing livestream where she opens up gifts fans have sent her. She’s received everything from shirts, scarves, cards, books, to Little Debbie Birthday Cakes. In adddion, I’ve seen fans pay as much as $200 for Super Chat donations in Ashleigh’s livestreams.

When you add in Adsense, Patreon, and the donations, it’s possible Ashleigh could be raking in close to $15k a month or more. Not a bad side gig.

Next up we have Popcorn in Bed, whose husband one day pointed out to her that she’d been “hiding under a rock my whole life with how many ‘amazing’ movies I haven’t seen (according to him).” Cassie, who runs PiB, started just a little over a year ago, in January, 2021, but since then has racked up substantial subs, and has some decent monthly ad income:

Like Ashleigh, Cassie has the Patreon hustle down to a science. Check her page out:

Screenshot by author.

While Cassie’s Patreon page above doesn’t show her exact monthly income, there’s a way to get a rough estimate. Going back to Ashleigh’s page, if you divide the number of monthly patrons into the amount she makes each month, you come to about $8.18 per person. Ashley has a membership tier of $3, $8, $10, $20, and even $100. The $100 one is actually sold out. So, at $8.18, it shows she has a pretty committed and engaged audience.

Now, looking at Cassie (Popcorn in Bed), she has four membership levels at $3, $6, $10, and $15. It’s reasonable to think each Patron might be in the average of those numbers, if Cassie’s results are similar to Ashleigh’s. That would mean each patron comes out to $7 a month. Seven bucks times 2,587 total Patrons comes out to $18,109. So, that plus the Google Adsense results (an average estimate of $5,897) equals $24,007 a month. Then you have donations and Super Chats. Cassie also does regular livestream gift unboxings. Oh, and then there’s PiB MERCH.

All told, Cassie could be getting paid $300k+ PER YEAR to watch movies.

Excuse me while I sit here with my mind blown for a minute or two.

To put that sort of income in perspective, according to Medscape Physician Compensation Report, 2019, Pathologists earn an average annual income of $308,000. According to U.S. News, the top 25 percent of lawyers in the U.S. make $189,250 a year. But unlike going to law school or medical school for years, being a movie reaction YouTuber doesn’t involve going into potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars of student loan debt.

Now, to be clear, individual results will vary when it comes to YouTube. Ashleigh and Cassie’s success with reaction videos may not be typical. But even doing a cursory glance through YouTube at the numerous reaction channels that exist out there, you’ll find dozens that have north of 100k subs. If you post regularly, engage with your audience, and leverage various revenue sources like Patreon or merchandising, you can make a substantial income with this niche.

But let’s look at a more “down to earth” example.

Screenshot by author.

Shanelle started her channel two years ago in June of 2020, and like many other reaction YouTubers, saw some growth during the Covid lockdowns. Shanelle is also an actress and wants to work in comedy.

Screenshot by author.

But what accounts for the lower revenue and subscription numbers compared to Ashleigh Burton and Cassie of Popcorn in Bed? I suspect this may simply boil down to fewer postings. Shanelle’s updates average out to almost once a week for the last two years. Ashleigh has uploaded 223 videos in about the same time span. While Cassie has done 210 in almost 18 months. YouTube really does reward higher consistency, and this is also the case with reaction videos. This is a niche with a lot of increasing competition. So if you’re not posting heavily, it’s going to be harder to hold onto and build an audience.

But even if you want to pursue the reaction niche on more of a part-time basis, Shanell’s channel shows you can still make a decent side income. Hey, not everyone has the time or interest to sit around watching movies all day, even if it might pay ridicously well. She does not have a Patreon page, a P.O. Box for donations, and does few livestreams. However, in a recent livestream, I noticed she did make some high-dollar Super Chats.

But what if you and a friend want to do a reaction video? Or if you’re in a relationship, and both you and your partner want to score some sweet reaction video cash? You’re in luck, because there are plenty of profitable channels that do just that.

Frankenstein’s Lab is a reaction channel run by “Frankenstein” and his cousin Rondo, who react to “movie trailers, music videos, sports, tv shows, and everything in between.” The two cousins have been at it for almost five years, having started back in May, 2017, and have built up a decent following since then.

I included this account to show that some reaction channels stretch back from before the Dark Times, before the Covid-19 lockdowns. And also to show that starting a reaction channel is not always as simple as going for the obvious choices, like Marvel movies or Star Wars. You have to stretch out and diversify the types of content you’re covering. Frankenstein’s Lab started to get some traction about a year after starting. It still saw really inconsistent view counts, ranging anywhere from a few hundred to tens of thousands. Then they did really well with a few videos reacting to comedian Bill Burr, as well as other comedians like Theo Von.

What’s cool about these reaction channels is you’re potentially exposing people to a lot of content they might not have seen otherwise. So don’t be afraid to get really eclectic with your choices, and mix it up. Just because an entertainer or film may have a limited following, you might strike gold reacting to their videos because you’re introducing something different to a new audience. You can also ride the coattails of a new trend or person, too. It was around the late teens era when Theo Von was starting to get popular, so Frankenstein’s Lab rode some of that wave.

Screenshot by author.

Frankenstein’s Lab is a real “workman’s” channel, having consistenty posted for almost five years now. It didn’t seem to benefit much from a “Covid Bump” in popularity. It was already well on its way before then. The two cousins have a small Patreon following. But they do utilize PayPal and CashApp, so it’s hard to say what their channel’s income might be. It obviously pulls in enough to be worth it to keep going.

Screenshot by author.

Finally, there’s ScreenSlurp, run by Australian couple Nick and Em. They started their channel in September, 2020, and have built up a pretty solid following.

Screenshot by author.

While the couple has been successful in monetizing their channel like many others in the reaction niche, and have a modest Patreon membership, Nick appears to be using their growing internet platform to help get a creative project of his off the ground. Their Instagram page has a link to a Kickstarter for an epic fantasy comic called “Creature Dwells” that Nick is trying to produce. As of now, the Kickstarter has already surpassed its funding goal. That’s a pretty cool double win there. You make a living watching movies, and help launch your own artistic career.

So, if you’re an artist or writer, and you’re looking to gain exposure or build a fanbase for your material, consider starting a YouTube channel.

Finally, these five channels are just a very small sampling of the vast number out there in the reaction video niche. Despite its controversy, there are no signs the trend is going away anytime soon. If anything, it’s growing and evolving.

If you’re considering getting into this lucrative niche, here are a few quick takeaways I learned in my research. Some of these tips overlap with what you’d need to do starting any YouTube channel, while others are specific to this niche.

  • Brush up on YouTube’s copyright and fair use policies, and be sure to follow the rules at all times. No sense in starting a channel if you’re just going to get banned.
  • Post regularly and often. Hey, you’re watching movies and TV. This shouldn’t be too hard, right? Yeah, I know, there’s this thing called the “outdoors” and “having a life.” But if you want to build an audience these days, you’ve got to rifle content out there like a World War II turret gunner.
  • Use Patreon! Make sure you offer plenty of extras and exclusives for your audience. You can post full-length movies on Patreon without having to cut them up to satisfy the fair use rule. Ashleigh and Cassie use that feature for their accounts, and it’s done great for them in raking in memberships.
  • Build a community with your subscribers. That means livestreams, lots of interaction, and maybe even tiny glimpses into your personal life. Remember “mirror neurons.” You want your subscribers to think of you as a cool friend they want to watch movies with. It’s all about building that sense of empathy and connection.
  • Don’t be afraid to cover stuff that’s not “popular.” You never know what might land. Or maybe your particular take on something is really unique and humorous, and that triggers the YouTube algorithm in your favor. Think of Frankenstein’s Lab when they did the Bill Burr and Theo Von videos. They went from a few thousand views on average, to millions, for those comedian-centered reactions.
  • Don’t forget about “Merchandising! Merchandising!” Every little revenue stream counts.

And that’s it. Good luck. I look forward to seeing your reaction channel, if I’m ever able to find it.

This Simple YouTube Niche is Faceless, Easy to Start, and Monetizes Quickly

Photo by Matej from Pexels:

Oh, and competition doesn’t seem to matter much for this niche, either. The YouTube ecosystem is so massive, there’s room for all sorts of similar, competing channels.

All of the channels I found in this niche have thousands to even hundreds of thousands of followers, and were all started within the last year. Some even had videos on virtually identical topics.

So, what niche am I talking about?

The “famous quotes” niche.

Basically, it’s just a slideshow of quotes by a famous person, usually against a black or decorative backdrop, set to copyright-free music, and read either by a human voiceover, or an AI voice that sounds pretty close to human.

That’s it. These videos feature quotes from all kinds of people. From celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, to writers like Oscar Wilde, philosophers like Confucius, to scientists like Albert Einstein. This niche falls mostly in the educational category, though it also crosses over with the historical, motivational and self-development niches as well.

This niche has undoubtedly been around for many years, both on YouTube and on boring old static websites. But it seems to have recently experienced a bit of a resurgence. I researched four channels, and all of them have experienced significant growth in just the last few months.

As a YouTube enthusiast, and someone who tries to be a “student of markets,” as legendary copywriter Gary Halbert says, I love discovering new niches. It’s fascinating to me to see the kinds of things people like. What sorts of trends suddenly become popular. And then seeing opportunistic YouTubers take advantage of those latest trends and start channels that become sucessful.

Oh, and another thing. This quotes niche is also one that could be easily outsourced and automated.

Screenshot by author.

The biggest channel I found was the appropriatly named Quotes channel. At the time of this writing, this channel has 454,000 subscribers. The screenshot above was taken about a week ago. That means in just the last seven days, this channels has gained over 10,000 new subscribers!

Screenshot by author.

According to Social Blade, a site that tracks and ranks different forms of social media, and estimates advertising income, Quotes currently makes somewhere between $950-$15,200 a month. Even if you take the lower estimate of that, say, closer to $2000-$3,000, that’s still pretty good, considering this channel generally updates every few days. And that’s just from Google Adsense.

The Quotes YouTube channel was started only last September, and in the eight months since has built up almost a 500,000 subscriber base. Not bad for a channel with only about 80 uploads.

Screenshot by author.

Here’s another fast growing quotes channel: Wisdom of the Ages. The above screenshot was also taken about a week ago. Since then, Wisdom’s subscriber count has increased to 109,000, for an increase of almost 15,000. This quotes niche is really exploding recently, and shows little signs of slowing down.

Wisdom mixes it up by making the video titles more descriptive and engaging.

Screenshot by Author.

As you can see in the above screenshot, Wisdom of the Ages makes somewhere between $365-$5,800 in monthly revenue from Google Adsense. That’s pretty decent for a channel that generally only posts about once a week. The channel was started almost 10 months ago. Its most popular video features quotes by Confucius, with almost 3 million views.

Screenshot by Author.

Well Said! is another quotes channel I found. This one has garnered over 2,000,000 views since its inception in February. However, according to Social Blade, this channel has set its subscriber and info profile to private. It does not appear to be monetized, either. I opened up the channel in incognito mode, and played several videos. There were no bumper ads or overlays.

Given the channel’s impressive viewer count in only four months, and the fact that its most popular video has over 600,000 views, it’s quite likely this channel has surpassed the threshold for YouTube monetization (1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours in the last 12 months). It’s possible the channel creator has decided to forego monetization. Currently, the channel is updated every few days.

Screenshot by author.

Lastly, there’s Quote of the Day, a channel actively started only about two months ago, but now has almost 14,000 subscribers. Like the other screenshots before, the one above was also taken a week ago. That’s 6,000 new subscribers in just seven days.

Quote of the Day has been very busy, even as a brand new channel in what seemingly might be a “saturated” niche. In its eight short weeks of life, here’s what this channel has accomplished according to its Social Blade profile:

Screenshot by Author.

Quote of the Day takes advantage of YouTube’s Shorts, as well. One thing I noticed that’s really cool about this niche, is that it’s very transferable. You could easily upload quotes videos to other places like TikTok and Instagram to increase and diversify revenue streams.

Quote of the Day also makes use of Amazon affiliate marketing, as seen in the shot below:

Screenshot by author.

Quote of the Day is inspiring to me, and not just because of its content, but because it shows you don’t have to be the first, the second, or even somewhere in the middle, to start a successful YouTube channel in a growing niche. You could even be dead last, and still build a decent following. There are millions (billions, probably at this point) of people watching YouTube everyday. These four channels show that there’s enough room for everybody in even the smaller niches.

Two Crazy Self-Published Books I Found on Amazon, and What I Learned from Discovering Them

Troll: Special Edition, by Emma Clark

I first learned about this book courtesy of the YouTube algorithm, which one day randomly served up a video by popular nerd culture vlogger Jenny Nicholson. Jenny devotes over 23 minutes to discussing Troll in a vlog titled, “I Did it. I found the Worst Book.”

Now, call me an optimist, but if the supposedly “worst” book on Amazon can get someone talking about it for 23 minutes, then hey, there must be something special about it. It’s like what Jack Sparrow said when told he was the worst pirate anyone’s ever heard of. “Yeah, but you have heard of me.” 

Troll may very well be the worst book ever written if Jenny’s to be believed, but you (and many others, courtesy of her vlog) have heard of it. I mean, fifty percent of the struggle of being a writer is just getting read. There are tons of books on Amazon that don’t even have a single review, much less a sale. Emma Clark succeeded here, and not just due to the negative publicity from Jenny’s vlog. Even before Jenny’s video, Troll had reviews and some sales. Troll had fans who were fans before it was cool, baby.   

So, what’s Troll about anyway? From the author’s own book blurb:

Twenty-one-year-old Kyla Adkins frequents the Internet in search of her soul mate. While online, she meets hot and devilishly handsome Justin Brogan. Dangerous, arrogant and quite psychotic, Justin hacks into Kyla’s computer and soon he controls everything, including her heart and her life.

That’s not a bad concept, really. It’s topical, relevant, and hip for today’s internet savvy audiences. Who hasn’t secretly fantasized about a hot internet troll stalking them? Even though it was published in 2013, you could easily see Troll updated for the TikTok generation.   

Troll: Special Edition, is actually an omnibus containing three previously published novels in the, uh, Troll universe. There are four parts to the Troll saga, so you’ll want to buy each edition separately so that you don’t miss out on any in the series. 

The author has also written other erotic books, such as Boy Next Door, a sort of gritty Kmart version of 50 Shades of Grey, which contains “abusive themes such as captive scenarios and BDSM.” Hey, you could say the same thing about the Bible. 

According to the author’s website, her other books include Drawn to Darkness, a series, Sea Angels: An Erotic Short, and various other erotic/romance books. It seems the author’s productivity dropped off around 2016, as there isn’t anything listed after that year. Can we hope that Troll will return for a fifth installment this decade? I’d like to see Troll take on the Metaverse. People are getting groped in Zuckerberg’s digital Twilight Zone already. So, if you’re out there reading this, Ms./Mrs. Clark, you’ve got a lot of new material to work with for a new Troll book. Just saying. 

Most of Emma Clark’s books are short. Troll: Part I, for instance, is all of 18 pages, and boasts a respectable four out of five stars from six ratings. Troll: Special Edition, also known as Troll: First 3 Books, has 2.9 stars from 31 ratings. Though most of the reviews clearly derive from Jenny’s YouTube audience, many of whom sarcastically posted five-star and one-star reviews. Still, 2.9 is like a movie getting a 60% Rotten Tomatoes score. Sonic the Hedgehog got a 63% in its 2020 debut, and that movie did great at the box office, even after all that controversy about Sonic’s weird-ass creepy face

What I Learned from Discovering Troll: Put yourself out there, regardless of whether you think you’re talented, ready, or not. You never know what will connect with people. You also never know when some random vlogger may discover your stuff, and decide to post a review of your work. While Clark’s book obviously got roasted, there have been examples from the opposite extreme. Andy Weir and The Martian, for instance.  

Up next, I’d like to direct your eyes downward to:

Ass Culture: A Short History, by Martin Goldberg

This is another book I discovered via YouTube. Or rather, I discovered the author via YouTube. It goes to show that if you’re a writer trying to promote yourself and your books, YouTube is a great place to build a platform. TikTok, or more specifically, BookTok, is another good one, as I wrote about in this article

So, what’s Ass Culture about? Gee, I wonder. Actually, little is known about it, as Goldberg never posted a blurb or summary on the book’s Amazon page. However, it appears to be about, based on some preliminary reading in the Kindle sample, the portrayal of the female posterior down through history, and its questionable association with feminine value and fertility.

That, or just a celebration of the ass.  

The reason this is an important topic goes beyond the age-old debate of whether you are an “ass guy,” a “breast guy,” a “face guy,” or even a “legs guy.” It’s really about how you judge the opposite sex, and how by focusing on superficial physical qualities (such as a lady’s posterior) you can miss out on the qualities that do matter in a potential mate (character, values, etc.). Missing the forest for the ass, so to speak.

On an individual level, this may not be that important. We all have our kinks. On a culture-wide level, however, a preoccupation with ass can lead a whole civilization astray. Yeah, you thought Sir Mix-A-Lot’s 1992 hit “Baby Got Back” was just a fun pop hit? No, that was actually indicative of Western Civilization’s moral decay. And things aren’t getting any better, judging by Meghan Trainor’s 2014 hit “All About That Bass,” a decisively pro-booty song. Though if we’re going to point any fingers, let’s not forget Queen’s 1978 hit “Fat Bottomed Girls,” which may have gotten the party started. 

The message here is shocking: There is a clear conspiracy afoot to poison the minds of Western men with an ass fetish. The effects of this could be calamitous. Will men today, with so much of their precious mental real estate absorbed by “dat ass,” be able to match the feats of men from precious generations? Could the Greatest Generation have landed at Normandy if their minds were warped by visions of bouncing buttocks? Could the brilliant engineers at NASA put Armstrong on the moon, if the only “moon” they were concerned with was the kind stuffed inside bikini bottoms? I think not.

The author, Martin Goldberg, is a YouTuber with 48,000 subscribers, according to Social Blade. He sporadically updates his channel nowadays. In the past, he was much more active, and appeared on camera. He covers a wide variety of topics, ranging from politics, history, culture, the “red pill,” MGTOW (that’s Men Going Their Own Way, for those of you wondering), and book reviews. I first found his channel several years ago when he was updating more regularly. 

Goldberg has also written a bunch of other books, including Understanding and Overcoming the Black Pill, How to Suck at Business: A Case Study, and Total Invincibility: How to Crush Failure and Maximize Your Human Potential. Of note is that all of his books are, at minimum, rated four stars, with some five stars. And all with apparently little to no promotion, other than the small amount of notoriety from Goldberg’s YouTube channel.       

What I Learned from Discovering Ass Culture: A Short History: Don’t be afraid of exploring topics, however niche or weird they might seem, that are of interest to you. Look for ways to illustrate history from different, or unconventional ends.  And post a decent and intriguing blurb about your book on its Amazon page to get people interested. Even your biggest ass-enthusiasts are going to want to have at least some idea of what they’re in for in a book called Ass Culture.
