“It’s true. No matter how hard you try to figure it out, there is no formula. Did David’s dad know that millions of people would get a kick out of his kid after the dentist? Doubtful. And if you think anyone thought Harlem Shake would actually be a 'thing', you’d be lying. There is no predicting it, and it’s frustrating. So, my only advice is keep doing what you think is funny. Document every embarrassing experience. Don’t be afraid to be an idiot. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll get yourself a viral video. If not, at least you’ll have a humbling experience. And material your friends can use to make fun of you for years. What happens on the Internet stays on the Internet. FOREVER! Why do we do this to ourselves again?”
“Good s#!t is happening. And it’s because people are watching this material that came from the heart. Not from a need to make money. Not from a need for fame.
