So this guy plays video games, screams at it foolishness and makes 7.4 millions a year in adsense revenue, the first reaction of most has to be:



7.4 millions for doing nothing,a few hundreds hours of nothing...

Rage and cry

Think of it, he got paid 7.4 millions for hundreds of hours of content, to get there, he made several hours of videos a day, for 5 years until he got 37 million subscribers, meaning he gained 0.2 $ per subscriber in the whole year.

Before you quit your job to do videos, remember that you will be a slave for Google, earning 20cents per subscriber a year if you are a high volume producer, how many millions did Google made of the guy work, 100 times more? how many people also quit college to made videos and failed, 1000 times more?

Slavery is alive and well in this age


Oh and if you think it is too much, the guy reached an audience bigger than the population of Canada and get paid way less than say for example, Adam Sandler 15+ millions per movie, which i'm pretty sure are less profitable than the revenue of the ads he gets to Google.

It's disgusting. People starving in the streets the world over, and this millennial jabronie douche is millionaire.

This is the reason we see so many stupid hoax videos around here.

I take it you don't realize how insanely popular Pew is with kids do you?

Or that he has nearly 38 million subscribers?

Hate on the guy if you want, tho god knows i will never understand why.....
Forbes



PewDiePie did not make an “I made $7.4 million this year!” video after all his cash was counted. Rather, he made a “$1 million for charity!” video celebrating that he and his fans had raised over a million dollars over the past year for a host of charities including the World Wildlife Fund , St. Jude, Save the Children, and Charity: Water, who personally thanked the PewDiePie army for directly providing water to 10,000 Rwandans.


Money earned, case settled yo.

That's the problem no? for each PewDiePie there must be thousands that think they can recreate his success and do the work for Google for nothing, as they would never be as popular as the guy and will invest the same time to it.

(who knows why 6 years old like this particular guy)

Who cares what he does to make money or how much he makes? He is providing a product and people enjoy it.

There always has been and always will be rich people and poor people, the only country in the world where everyone is equal is North korea.

It does not matter if he made $7, $7 million or $7 billion it's not going to make one bit of difference to your life is it.

Wow man, please research this topic some more. He is hardly the only person making this bank.

Evantube makes around 8 million, i think the Skylander kids are pushing around 5 million, there are countless others some of whom are financing their college educations or small businesses with popular "Lets Play"style content.

It's a good way to make money in a digital age, and yes, it takes a # load of hard work that you never get to see because of editing and skill.

Is everyone gonna make a mint on this, no, but thats why its a business. The best will ultimately profit and maybe even move on to better things.

Yes i think if people made content and companies profit for it, there should be a more even distribution of the earnings, you see the guy got paid so much for having 37 million viewers, one guy can have 1 viewer a year and not even get 20c out of it, but google will made the same of 37 millions guys like this as from 1 pewstuffstuff, slaves making money to the master, they made an investment in gear to produce the videos and time, get paid nothing unless super famous and google make all the wining without having to invest a dime.

Good for him.
He is a funny chap just my sort of humour.
Good looking chap also he will continue to do well.
Can't moan at a guy doing well because it would be sour grapes.

I'm really not seeing much of an issue with his existence as you. Sure, you may view the content as immature nonsense. The fact is, he is making people happy and making them laugh by doing so.

You might as well start hating at ever single performer to ever have exist simply because you believe acting is much less an effort than physical labor, or sitting at a desk.

Adam Sandler has been the highest paid actor for several (non consecutive) years, simply because he puts out B movies at a mass scale in comparison to high-end films.

People enjoy being entertained, and companies know that. If I had the chance I would instantly switch spots with PewDIePie or Adam Sandler, despite the content being lack-luster, uncreative, and at times, total garbage.

I dunno... Going by this it looks like he is doing a lot more than doing "nothing".

Slavery? Looks like good old fashioned capitalism to me.

If I didn't know better, I'd say that you are jelly.

Before Youtube's partnership program came into effect, people made movies just because they wanted to make movies. I'd place a solid bet that PewDiePie had no intention of getting wealthy off of his content when he started. He was just doing it for fun. The money that comes in now is just a bonus.

So again, I don't see an issue with Google's take on it.

Are there people who noticed how much others were making on youtube, then decided they wanted to give it a shot for the money? Absolutely! But Most of the high-end Youtuber's started making videos before the partnership program, because it was a passion of there's, that's it.

Google has every right not to put advertisements in the videos, but on the sides in youtube's website instead, thus giving the content creators like PewDiePie absolutely nothing. The thing is, PewDiePie would still be making videos.
