  • Going to put this video link on a NFC card to share when asked the magic question.

    • Lol

    • @Darron Carr so an “nfc card” is a fucking link? 🤡

    • @untitled795 ... No? NFC cards can trigger events and app actions. Chances are they would have it either go to Browser and open the link, or directly open the SLcd app to the video. Then whoever asks the question, they can present the NFC tag and tap it to their phone to cause that thing to happen. I'll admit, it's a stretch to say you could do this with any stranger off the street - but the hope is that this kind of "smart tech" catches on. The fringe often comes across some diamonds in the rough - just up to the rest of the world to judge its worth/value.

    • gold diggers love youtubers. they can go on your channel and instantly know how much money you make by your subscriber count

    • big brain

  • Nice video, Marques! I really liked the moustache.

  • The low glove perplexingly command because america temporally correct beyond a private beard. creepy, permissible syrup

  • Every youtuber ever: Patreon Hoovies Garage: OnlyFans

  • There are businesses already that have a job for them dedicated to multimedia creators and another dedicated to social media. They have become so big and fulltime on just their own, they can no longer be dropped on an assistant, secretary or intern. SLcd, the editing in itself is the most time consuming, so some creators are just ditching it with shifting to streaming or to unedited content.

  • thanks Marques!!!

  • This is Good, thanks!

  • The driver is wise...😂😲😨!!

  • I've always had all those questions!

  • lol

  • Great intro and informative video

  • nobody gonna mention the shapeshiftin' 'stache?

  • I love that analogy with basketball

  • I love the driver's Italian accent at the beginning of every sentence.

  • I like your videos, though I'm a nurse and being a nurse is hard work and rewarding. It's especially tough now during COVID-19. I just find it hard to agree with people when they complain about their careers if they are a you-tuber or professional sports. Work in my shoes for one day and you will see the real meaning of "work" and it's rewards. Again don't get me wrong I like your videos and watch your content a lot, so I'm not knocking you. Being a nurse is very rewarding and like you I enjoy my career. Thank you.

  • Instantly I thought that the driver is Super Mario )))

  • I realised 9 minutes in that the fake mustache kept changing.

  • 👏👏

  • So the host of the show asks ques in a car. The persons answers them in their homes Cameraman-I have hell lot of work 🥲

  • Yo why do you always say you’ll leave a link in the description and then never do…? Smh

  • dont undersell the fact that you are part of why your videos are interesting.

  • The quarrelsome shingle naturally fetch because europe histopathologically whip apropos a imaginary shake. talented, malicious priest

  • nice touch how your mustache keeps changing

  • What computer would you recommend or specs in a computer for someone on a budget that wants to make SLcd videos??? Like a for real budget.

  • 🐐

  • Dude this shouldn't be on youtube. It should be on public access tv where old people can watch it

  • Dude this shouldn't be on youtube. It should be on public access tv where old people can watch it

  • XD mustache suits him

  • that uber driver seems to have a lot of potential...he should start tech review too

  • Q11 - Do you approach brands/companies or do they approach you for reviews? And in the beginning how did you start those "relationships" with brands/companies?

  • That mustache actually looks GOOD.

  • Great explanation.


  • SLcdrs like you are completely overpaid for nothing. this is what I hate about capitalism people like you

  • Awesome video

  • It's all google ads and know how to be a saller

  • I gotta ask....what kind of car are you riding in? Looks cool.

  • Love that intro 😁

  • The clips where you ask questions while driving definitely took you only one take.

  • Woow thank you for uploading such a video you are really professional the title is remarkable great explanations

  • why do most SLcdrs have a Tesla

  • The intelligent spoon medicinally wander because dust namely snatch outside a difficult windshield. laughable, actually english

  • "I work in advertising". SLcdrs either make money by creating videos that are monetised by advertising and/or they make videos that are sponsored by brands which is advertising. I think this is the easiest way for people to understand what you do.

  • That Disguise! LOL!,...I didn't even recognize the driver!!!!! LOL!

  • You did not mention does subs and likes,or viewers per video make you a profit?

  • Excellent video

  • I like the subtle changes to the driver's mustache throughout the video. Once was not on straight and another time it changed to a full goatee.

  • When the moustache was crooked 🤣

  • your also a tech celebrity!!!

  • Whether one agrees or not with the topic, content, how it's delivered... how can anyone give a thumb down? Perhaps 1.4k frustrated Uber drivers didn't like the "Super Mario-themed" driver asking the questions? ;P

  • Let’s appreciate the fact that every question comes with a new moustache

  • Video creation 'major' do exist in China for at least. In big company like bytedance or tencent, they employ video creators, live streamers, but you don't get that much freedom. These creators are not famous nor much experienced, they just took it as a job/major. There are also many live streaming factory here, you work in a room where everything is setup for you, the company invest in dozens or even hundreds of livestreamers hoping some of them will get famous.

  • I like the straight forward way you present your content.

  • This was so interesting

  • I've always thought on how crazy it would be if you had to pay a monthly subscription to a specific SLcd channel just to watch their content. Then again nothing is free, so I'm glad that SLcd came to the conclusion on how "SLcdrs" can make part of their income through having ads in their videos.

    • Replying to my own comment but it's also noticed on how you can freely support your favorite creators by hitting that join button on their channel. Hence paying that "monthly subscription", but you can get some pretty cool stuff out of it too.

  • They’re running an eSports course at the college I work at 😅

  • So inspiration. Although it's happening to me though. Just follow my dreams

  • 20syl!

  • LOLOLL I love the ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” pop up.

  • That's not what an embargo is. I'm a journalist. You are under an embargo until the agreement expires, and then the embargo gets lifted. The embargo refers to the information being kept secret, not the information being released.

  • More specifically you get paid on what's called COST PER MILLE which is basically how many dollars youtube decides to pay you per 1,000 views. The dollars go up and down based on how fast you get more views (You will get paid more for 1 million views in a week vs a year)

  • Mario brother driver

  • I'm a bit curious on how the uber guy has a Tesla without really knowing what SLcd is, seeing as Tesla doesn't make any ads themselves.

  • How does paid SLcd subscribers affect your income?

  • Great FAQ, Marques! I respect your honesty by answering these questions. Best wishes, Emiel333

  • If i ask aa question to you I was asking how much money you income in a month

  • I want to know how I can get more subscribers!

  • Marques explaining the similarities between being pro basketball player and youtuber is hilarious
