Okay, I know people can make money from YouTube, but this is just insane. Apparently, the most popular guy on the site is a comic named RayWJ, whose videos draw millions of viewers and are said to earn him more than $1 million annually. What?!? A million dollars for making videos of yourself ranting against others? Sounds like a pretty good gig if you can get it!
I haven’t seen any of RayWJ’s stuff, but maybe I’ll check it out sometime. There’s got to be SOMETHING to him, right? As the article I read pointed out, he gets between 3-5 million unique views for each video, which is what some cable channels get for their programming. The money makes more sense when put in that perspective.
Anyway, if you’ve ever wondered who YouTube’s biggest earner is, check out Ray William Johnson.
