The few times I’ve made content for other reasons, the results have been mixed.”I live for those moments when I realize that even if everybody on the planet hated what I’m working on, my satisfaction wouldn’t be affected. I’ve had a few videos that didn’t perform that well, but which I’m proud of.”That satisfaction pushes me to make videos that are more successful. Let the joy you feel during the execution be most of your reward.”Asked how the idea for Bad Lip Reading came about, the anonymous creator said: “My mother lost her hearing in her forties, and became amazing at lip-reading. I would mute the TV to see what her world was like, but I was terrible at it. Later I was reviewing silent footage from a shoot I had just been on, and it looked as though one of the people said ‘bacon hobbit’.I recorded those words over the video and sent it to some friends, who thought it was hilarious and asked me to do more. So I started my channel, simply as a way to share longer videos with friends. That’s when I created the phrase ‘bad lip reading’ to describe these kinds of videos.”They sent the links to their friends, and I had an audience. But it was really the joy of making my friends laugh that made me create the channel.”And that translated to a wider audience.”For more tips on how to become YouTube famous, Will Eagle’s new book can be pre-ordered here.
