  • Today's video is brought to you by Squarespace. Head over to Squarespace.com/drew
  • to start your free trial and to get 10% off your first purchase.
  • Yes guys, I know exactly what you're thinking right now. Drew,
  • You can make a video about anything in the world anything at all and you've chosen to make two consecutive videos
  • About the Paul brothers. I get it, I know, I understand that in doing so I'm sort of part of the problem
  • I'm helping perpetuate their fame
  • Even if I'm talking about them in a negative way.
  • But I wholeheartedly believe this will be the last video I ever make about Jake Paul.
  • The last video I made will be the last video I ever make about Logan Paul,
  • And I implore you guys to hold me to that
  • But yeah, so today I'm gonna be talking about Jake Paul's recent business endeavor that he
  • Created called edfluent. He first announced this in his New Year's video titled
  • "Here's Why 2017 Was the Best Year Of My Life." Now on its own, this is actually kind of a funny video
  • It's just like from start to finish, or at least from start to the point
  • I finished, which was about a third of the way through, it's just a brag fest.
  • Here's what I bought. Here's all the money I have.
  • Here's my nice car. One of the hilarious tidbits in here is when he mentions how he
  • Wrapped up his second and final season on the Disney Channel to, quote, focus on other acting jobs.
  • "So I could focus more on other acting jobs"
  • Sure, that's one way to put it. You could also say that he got fired, and
  • You'd be more correct if you said it that way. So after he lists like the 30 things that he's done this year
  • he's very proud of, he transitions into his big announcement
  • for edfluence.
  • "I literally think I have one of the best jobs on the Earth."
  • "I get to do what I want, where I want, with who I want and make a lot of money doing it,"
  • "And so I wanted you guys to be able to do it too."
  • "So in 2017 guys, I spent hours and hours and hours developing something I call edfluence."
  • So he just spent the last minute,
  • Well actually he spent the last six minutes kind of building up to this, because by bragging about all the things he was able to buy
  • And the things he's able to do and then transitioning into being like look, I live a great life
  • You know that oh, wait
  • I think there might be a way for you to
  • Live the life that I've showed off to you.
  • "Edfluence is a course that you guys can take right now online."
  • "How to do social media, secrets, tips, tricks, all things that have taken me years to master."
  • "You can even potentially be able to join Team 10 if you take this course."
  • Okay. I'm intrigued.
  • *burps* So let's check it out
  • I cannot wait to figure out what type of influencer I am, so let's go and take this quiz.
  • "I currently use the following platforms"
  • Facebook, absolutely not, Instagram, no, snap, no.
  • I don't use any of them, and I don't want to.
  • "At a party this sounds most like me: the party don't start till I walk in"
  • That sounds the most like me, for sure.
  • "Money, or fame?" Unfortunately, there's no option for neither.
  • I'm not about material possession, but I'm gonna go ahead and go with money.
  • "I'm this committed to becoming a popular influencer:" Not interested.
  • "My game of choice:" Can I only choose one?
  • I'll go with Angry Birds.
  • "Being a social media influencer is - whatever, it just is."
  • I like that all of these questions have an answer that is exactly what I was already thinking.
  • "I would make these kind of videos:"
  • "Comedy, Daily Vlogs, Fitness"
  • *grunts*
  • "If I decide not to become a social influencer, I will:"
  • I would never! I would never do anything else
  • "My dream car" Don't care. Just a car.
  • Is that it?
  • *I made a huge mistake*
  • Okay, so now what we've got here is an
  • Unskippable video, and we're teased that a big announcement is coming in about 7 minutes, so let's watch
  • "I'm Jake Paul,"
  • "And if you know me you probably know all about Team 10 as well and, at the end of this video,"
  • "I have a crazy new announcement about something. I'm calling Team 1000."
  • I literally have goosebumps
  • I'm gonna be on Team 10, uh, Team 1000.
  • "Making videos, making massive business deals, working with brands, sponsorships,"
  • "Designing my own merchandise,"
  • "Travelling all across the country,"
  • "Basically I get to play for a living."
  • I want to do that!
  • "Ten years ago, social media influence, actually,"
  • "Five years ago, even, social media influencers like me didn't it even exist."
  • You heard it here first guys five years ago, Jake Paul didn't even exist. He was created in a laboratory
  • about four and a half years ago
  • "We have a bigger audience, get more engagement, have more viewership,
  • "and even make more sponsorship money than many major TV shows."
  • "Take for example Keeping Up with the Kardashians."
  • "It's a big show right? They get 2 million viewers in episode and posts an episode every week."
  • "So over the course of a year they get a hundred and four million views."
  • Does he think that they have a new episode every week throughout the year,
  • Like there's no season break, there's no off time, it's just 52 weeks in a year, one episode every week.
  • "I'm posting every single day, averaging about twelve point six million views per day over the course of the year
  • That's 4.6 billion views
  • So, you tell me. Which one has more influence?"
  • THE BIGGER ONE
  • "Having freedom and financial freedom and"
  • "The cars and stuff are all cool and stuff too."
  • "As you know Team 10 is a super exclusive group of top influencer"
  • "talent that I've personally hand selected and once an influencer makes it into Team 10,"
  • "They're basically made. I'm talking millions of views and engagement off the charts."
  • "But not just anyone can make it into the house and to be honest, most people aren't ready to be on Team 10,"
  • "And still have things to learn, and this is why I'm stoked"
  • "To introduce you to something super special today,"
  • "Team 1000."
  • It's like Team 10, but the number is bigger.
  • "Steps in this really aren't that hard."
  • "We've done the hard part of figuring out how to do this, so if you can't follow the roadmap,"
  • "Then there's just no chance you'll make it in the team 1000 or maybe even as a social-media influencer"
  • "You know already that there are millions of Jake Paulers watching this right now,"
  • "And if you wait on this you'll probably miss your shot at 1000."
  • Oh, no he's right!
  • There's so many other people who are gonna jump on this chance, and if I don't do it right now,
  • Then I'm gonna miss out. I can't, I don't even have time to stop and think about it.
  • I just gotta freaking grab my credit card, sign the heck up before all the other Jake Paulers beat me to it!
  • "If you're a kid out there like I was trying to start my social media career, you could become successful,"
  • "And if you can't sacrifice some Starbucks for the next few weeks, then maybe that just means this life isn't for you."
  • I can sacrifice Starbucks for a few weeks!
  • I don't, I don't need that!
  • I just need to become Jake Pauler then I could have all that Starbucks I ever want in my life.
  • Inspirational stuff I'm ready to fucking get started.
  • Let's do this shit.
  • Good on him for only charging seven bucks, so let me go grab my credit card.
  • I feel like he really overhyped the whole
  • Like go without Starbucks for a few weeks thing, because $7 is literally, like, one and a half coffees.
  • This is a very useful feature. I've never seen this, um, when entering my credit card information before.
  • Next to where you put in your credit card number,
  • It's got like an up and down arrow, so you can just, like, click up until you get to your credit card number. *laughs*
  • Great! Yeah this is going to take a while.
  • You're purchasing an inner-circle one-time charge of seven dollars. That's not so bad. Alright, so here we go.
  • What took him five years I'm gonna figure out my two days. I'm gonna zip through this shit.
  • I'm noticing though over here on the left,
  • This is chapter 1, but chapter 2, 3, 4, 5 - oh my god all these chapters are locked. Do I have to watch them?
  • "Ay Ay Ay Ay! What's up guys? Jake Paul here."
  • "And I'm so stoked that you took action and picked up the road map to 1000."
  • "Join Jake's inner circle." I thought I already did. It said one time purchase,
  • $7 for inner circle, but now if I want to join his inner circle, I have to pay $57!
  • *gulps* That's a lot of Starbucks
  • "Hold Up! The inner circle is the only place to get the secret strategies that team 10 use and still uses to get and keep"
  • "attention, build our audience and become top social media influencers. Do you want to see what's in the inner circle?"
  • Yeah! That's why I paid $7.
  • This is so fucked up.
  • Here's what I'm picturing is, a kid has just watched this. He's a huge Jake Pauler
  • He watches a video. He's like, Oh my dreams will come true,
  • I just need to get the road map, and he sees seven bucks, that's nothing!
  • So he asked his mom for her credit card number. She puts it in because it's like okay
  • Seven bucks to, you know, learn how to become like, whatever, parents don't give a shit, right?
  • Maybe she watched the video too, and she's like okay
  • Yeah, sure that seems reasonable so she puts in her credit card information
  • He pays the $7 and then immediately is asked to pay $57
  • But here's the best part! The parent has already put in their credit card information
  • So you don't have to put it in again. You just click one box, and you just charge your mom's card another
  • $57. You don't even have to get her permission at this point
  • There's absolutely no part of me that thinks it would be a smart decision to spend another $57
  • But I set out to do something today. My mission was to join Team 10,
  • And I'm not gonna let a small road bump followed by a much bigger road bump get in my way.
  • Dear God,
  • I'm sorry for what I'm about to do. Please forgive me. Love, Drew.
  • *clicks*
  • My card was declined?
  • What?
  • Holy shit guys, I just got a text from American Express.
  • It was a fraud alert, so I wonder if this has happened so many times now with parents
  • Calling and being like I didn't authorize his purchase
  • I authorized the first one but not the second one. Maybe this is like an immediate red flag for the credit card companies?
  • That is hilarious. It seems I have been gifted a second chance. Someone out there was looking down on me and said, "Drew,
  • Don't be an idiot. Do not give this guy $57. I'm gonna give you one more chance to not do that"
  • And, uh
  • *coughs*
  • Well I'm gonna blow that chance.
  • "Success! You may now continue viewing the members' only content!"
  • Welcome to Team 1000, bitches!
  • We made it.
  • I'm not gonna bother with Chapter 1 because I already had that, and if I only watch Chapter 1,
  • Then, uh, why did I just spend $57? So I'm gonna skip around.
  • Let's go to Chapter 12. "What type of content should you post on YouTube to get the most hits?"
  • Holy shit
  • "Oh hey,"
  • "Didn't even see you guys there. Oh, sorry. I put this YouTube mug away, but,"
  • "It's kind of ironic,"
  • "That..."
  • "We are talking about YouTube,"
  • "Chapter 13,"
  • "Sorry about that guys, it's actually Chapter 12,"
  • "Come on Jake, what are you doing? Sorry Jake. There's a lot of chapters. All right, Jake, let's do this. What is up?"
  • People paid $64 for this!
  • That was like the first one I watched and he's like stumbling over his words. Oh, this is perfect.
  • This video is 17 minutes long.
  • Why did I do this? Why am I doing this? What - no one - no one forced me to do this. This is my idea.
  • I thought this would be fun. I thought this would be funny. It's neither of those. It's miserable.
  • And now I have explain to my wife why I used our kids college fund!
  • "What I have found works the best within the videos,"
  • "Are drama,"
  • "Stories,"
  • "Crazy things like, like pranks."
  • Slow down Jake
  • "Animals,"
  • I can't keep up with you Jake
  • "And comedic stuff."
  • Comedic stuff,
  • "And also like sad stories, or" Sad stuff, sad stuff, that's good
  • I'm learning so much already.
  • "The more content, the more views,"
  • "The more people clicking into your channel, the more subscribers that you're getting,"
  • "The more money that you're making so that"
  • "You can spend even more time on making videos,"
  • "Which helps your videos to be better, so guys be consistent,"
  • "Stick to a schedule,"
  • "Don't-"
  • "Don't go away from it."
  • "One thing that you can do is-"
  • Alright I like this one. "How to close deals when working with brands"
  • "Oh, you're what, mom, you're watching this Edfluence course?"
  • "Oh my gosh, you're blowing up, mom?"
  • "Oh my gosh. Yeah, I know, because everything in this course is right, and you should follow it." *click*
  • *clear throat*
  • "Cool, okay, cool."
  • ???
  • "Episode 4."
  • This is so half-assed!
  • I-I'm sure there's some valuable information in here, but every time I click on anything,
  • It's just like everything's the first take, like he couldn't be bothered to say something again.
  • I understand he's busy, but people spent $64 on this and I don't even know what he's saying half the time.
  • "I don't know if that's going to be in the final cut. Don't put that there ??? voice cover it so it might be i'm saying something different like-"
  • This was $64. I'm still confused, like, what exactly is Team 1000?
  • One of your big selling points in your introductory video is, like, you can be a part of Team 1000,
  • I'm so excited to announce Team 1000.
  • You know Team 10. You can't be part of that, you're not good enough, but maybe Team 1000.
  • So give me $64, follow these steps, and then maybe you can join Team 1000.
  • Here's the thing though. I still don't know what Team 1000 is. Am I on Team 1000 now?
  • I noticed just now that there is a tab that says Team 1000 near the top.
  • You click on Team 1000. Get this baby. You ready for this?
  • Team 1000 coming soon. Stay tuned for updates
  • Winky face.
  • So I spent $64 on a screen that says Team 1000 coming soon.
  • I thought I was paying $57 to become a part of Team 1000 and yet it seems the only information
  • I have about Team 1000 is that it doesn't exist yet.
  • So what the hell man?
  • Now according to the terms and conditions that I agreed to,
  • And that everyone agrees to by joining this,
  • I am accepting that at any point in the future they can just charge me again.
  • So, sure, Team 1000, It's coming soon right?
  • But who's to say that when it does come out, they don't automatically charge my card again?
  • They have my credit card on file.
  • I got an immediate fraud alert, which, I don't know if that happens to you guys a lot.
  • I have never in my life gotten a fraud alert from using a credit card on any website,
  • and I bought things from weird websites before.
  • I've traveled without calling my credit card company.
  • Like I-I'll be in Florida one day and then in New York the next day using my credit card,
  • And I'll never get a phone call.
  • That is so funny to me that this has clearly been problematic for people, and for parents I assume.
  • I think in conclusion Edfluence is just one more example that kind of proves the point I tried to make in my last video,
  • Which is that, Jake and Logan,
  • Their number one goals in life are to one-up each other in terms of getting people to pay attention to them,
  • And they both, simultaneously, seemed to run out of ways to do that,
  • And so seemingly in unison they each respectively did the worst thing they were capable of.
  • Logan, the entertainer, wanted to, quote, "show people something they had never seen before,"
  • "by doing something that had never been done before," right,
  • And then you have Jake on the other hand, the, uh, business person,
  • He's literally gilding people into giving him money, so then, so they have a chance to live the life he lives.
  • In his video, he talks about how you need - you used to have to be lucky,
  • But now it's all about hard work and talent, and to an extent that is true,
  • But there is still so much luck involved, and for him to say
  • "You have to do this if you want to be successful like me,"
  • Well, there's plenty of people who are successful on YouTube that didn't pay him $64.
  • It's not even impressive manipulation, right. These kids spend every day watching his videos,
  • Dreaming of living the life that he lives to the point where so many kids don't even have
  • Reasonable aspirations in school anymore because it's just like "oh, I'm just gonna be a famous youtuber like Jake Paul,"
  • "I want to be like Jake Paul when I grow up"
  • When it's so fucking unrealistic to live that life and for him to just take advantage
  • Of that and basically say "for a couple of bucks, I'll tell you how I do it!"
  • "You can be a part of Team 1000, which doesn't exist."
  • It's easy to do that shit.
  • In his introductory video he's just driving around showing off all the things he has.
  • He's telling you all the money he makes. Everything's very vague though,
  • And he just kind of promises that you can do it too.
  • That is not a difficult thing to do. There's nothing about that, that's impressive to me.
  • In fact. It's so simple that I went ahead and did it too.
  • Yo, what is up Little Stinkers my name is Drew Gooden, but you already fucking knew that, huh, cuz I'm famous as fuck.
  • Welcome to my place, just taking Mr. Honda out f-for a little spin, for a little joyride.
  • You know, something we do when you're famous like me.
  • Welcome home. Let's take a look around.
  • Here's a little something you may not know about me. Even though I've only been famous on YouTube for a few months now,
  • I've already made exactly 1 million dollars from my videos. Don't believe me?
  • Yeah, you think I could afford a place like this without having exactly 1 million dollars in my bank account?
  • Not a chance. Let's take a look around.
  • Uh, babe, over here.
  • If you guys want to see the rest of that video and check out what the premium Little Stinker Club is all about,
  • Then go to littlestinkerclub.com or click the link down in the description.
  • What has taken me over six months to learn on YouTube,
  • You could potentially learn in minutes for the low price of just $999.
  • I just added this section on to my existing website. It was super easy and that brings me to today's sponsor.
  • Squarespace, here's my impression of you. Hey Drew?
  • Everything sponsored by Squarespace. I bet you don't even use Squarespace! Well you're wrong.
  • Last month, I use Squarespace to make my beautiful merch website,
  • And it was so easy to use that this month when I had the idea to make a parody website,
  • For Edfluence make, add a parody section of that onto my website
  • I didn't even hesitate because I knew would be so easy and it was.
  • The thing I've learned about having a website is that it's Kind of an ongoing process,
  • You don't just make it and then release it, and then you're done,
  • There's things you're gonna want to add and customize,
  • And especially if you're managing an online store,
  • Because you need to monitor, your inventory levels, your orders, your revenue, all of that,
  • And Squarespace made it super easy to do that.
  • One thing I didn't even know about when first started using them was that they're integrated with shipstation
  • It automatically takes all the orders you have from your shop, puts them into shipstation,
  • Generates shipping labels, shows you how much everything's gonna cost so you can get the most efficient use of your money
  • And that was super important for me because I was - I shipped everything myself,
  • I packed and shipped everything, and so being able to compare all the costs and manage it all in one place was like super helpful.
  • Now, maybe you're not looking to create an online store. You just need like a nice landing page for you or your business
  • Squarespace is perfect for that too
  • They have hundreds of beautiful designer templates to choose from for you to achieve any look that you may be imagining in your head
  • It's also so quick and easy to purchase a domain if you already have a domain
  • It's simple to transfer to Squarespace so you can manage your entire
  • Online presence all in one place head over to Squarespace dot com for your free trial and when you're ready to launch go to Squarespace dot com

  • There but there's just so much content to sift through I couldn't do it all in this video if you're interested in that let me
  • Know I think maybe the best format would be some sort of live
