If you think running a car news site or working for a car news blog isn’t much of a job, I haven’t got a counterargument for your negative vibes. Running a car news site and working for a car news blog isn’t a job, it’s more like a hobby. Similarly, YouTubing isn’t a job because in a real job you don’t get to have fun. That is the view of WhistlinDiesel, AKA Cody Detwiler, AKA Indiana state native.
WhistlinDiesel has over 3M YouTube subscribers, and according to various social media analytics, his net worth is valued at around $2-3M, all derived from his Youtube channel. The video uploads feature Detwiler crashing and wrecking… things… in rural Indiana.
In this video, he attempts to make his Ford F150 jump fences courtesy of a retro-installed hydraulic lift. Unsurprisingly it doesn’t work. So he randomly breaks stuff and therefore increases his YouTube income stream. That’s how he makes his living folks. Actually, we wouldn’t mind making a living breaking stuff. Money is money as Pablo Escobar once said.
