How To Become A YouTube Millionaire Today

Posted by & filed under Celebrities, How To..., Interviews, Media, Video.

Last year, 24 year old Felix Kjellberg made $4 million from playing video games. To be more precise, Felix made $4 million from playing video games really badly. Known as PewDiePie online, millions of YouTube users love the camp, crazy commentary Kjellberg comes up with as he sword-fights with Minecraft zombies or screams like a girl playing Silent Hill. Over 30 million people subscribe to his PewDiePie channel, making it the most popular on YouTube. So – yeah. $4 million. You’re probably thinking, like us, “I play video games really badly! I sound a bit stupid when I talk! Maybe I can make a fortune on YouTube.” Well, that’s true, you could. But there’s one big difference between us and Felix. He’s actually doing it. Want to be the next YouTube millionaire? We talk to people who know exactly how to get you there. Show Me the Money In May 2007, YouTube launched its “Partner Program”. Under this initiative, popular YouTubers were able, for the first time, to run advertising on their videos. At first, it was a shadowy, secretive feature – with YouTube cherry-picking popular uploaders for its program. In 2012, the service was opened to everyone. Party time. YouTube has been…

Doctor Who: How To Be More Like The Timelord

Posted by & filed under Factoid, How To..., Media, Video.

He’s over two thousand years old, travels through space and time in a wooden box and is always the smartest person in the room. Who wouldn’t want to be more like the Doctor? Coming back to the telly box this Saturday, Doctor Who is now in its 51st year – with a title character who could teach us a thing or two about how to live a life more interesting. While we don’t know exactly what Peter Capaldi’s twelfth Doctor will be like yet, we can speculate. His face changes every few years, but he’s always the Doctor; an eccentric mass of compassion, cleverness and contradiction. These constants make him a truly fantastic hero – and a realistic role model. You don’t need a police call box that’s bigger on the inside or two hearts to be a better, less boring, more adventurous you. Let’s count down the ways you can be a bit more like the Doctor. The Doctor is never cowardly or cruel Former script editor and Doctor Who writer Terrance Dicks was first to describe the titular time lord as “never cowardly or cruel”. Those words were used again as the Doctor’s motto in the 50th anniversary…

Thrilling Helicopter Video Thrill!

Posted by & filed under Media, Video.

Chopper. Whirlybird. Skyplane. No matter what you call a helicopter, there is one thing you can be sure of. They are very thrilling. How thrilling? How about thriller writer Frederick Forsyth performing all of Michael Jackson’s Thriller while on a tightrope THAT’S ON FIRE! That is only half as thrilling as a helicopter. Especially when this particular helicopter is a a-scooping and a-swooping over the buildings, pigeons and congestion charges of the greatest capital city in the whole country. London Town. So great that Wings named an album after it. So large it now has three football clubs within it. So historic it makes you physically sick. Yes, that probably sounds pretty nice. But I can tell you want proof. Actual proof that riding in a helicopter over London is in some way thrilling. Well here it is in all it’s cinematic glory. We just filmed, edited and rendered this amazing video showing what it’s like to head out on one of our incredible London helicopter experiences. Take a cockpit eye’s view of the incredible sights and thoroughly iconic views you encounter while you are zapping about up there. You can see the video below and if it’s whetted your…

YouTuber BriBry Tries Indoor Skydiving

Posted by & filed under Media, Video.

In his erstwhile attempt to tick off as many things as humanly possible from his bucket list, YouTube superstar BriBryonTour (@BriBryontour if you are Twitlerate) and his beautifully coiffured friend Jason allowed us to take them for a spot of Indoor Skydiving. For the uninitiated, Indoor Skydiving is skydiving indoors. Or, to explain it in ways that are actually useful, rather than heading quite swiftly downwards from a big plane in the sky, you are blasted upwards by a giant fan thing and float about like a discarded Subway sandwich wrapper caught in an updraught. As you can see from the videotaped results presented below, BriBry had a fabulous time, despite the intervention of his legs. Plus, there’s the added bonus of seeing his forehead for the first time anywhere on the planet! Take that The One Show! Tell the young man exactly how you feel about his exploits by visiting his small, delightful section of the YouTube site RIGHT HERE. Has all that falling upwards in a jumpsuit got you hot and bothered? Book your own Indoor Skydiving funfest ON THIS BIT.  And check out BriBry having a bit of a bash at our SWAT Training from a while…

New Zombie TV Series: BBC3’s In The Flesh

Posted by & filed under News, Video.

BBC3 are screening a new zombie-themed drama this month. It’s called In The Flesh, and they’ve been kind enough to offer us a preview to share with our zombie-loving hoards. Set after the zombie uprising, In The Flesh tells the story of zombie teenager Kieren, and his return to his family and home town after zombie rehab. Yes, you read right – zombie rehab. Zombies now carry the politically-correct tag ‘PDS sufferers’ (Partially Deceased Syndrome, don’t-cha-know), and the government have passed legislation demanding tolerance and acceptance like any minority group (dead or undead). Here’s the trailer… What do you reckon? Let us know in the comments… In The Flesh is on BBC3 on 17 March at 10pm. Look out for more teasers on Twitter at @BBC3.
