On the way back from the Rubicon, I recorded a video that went viral.

on our way back from california to texas, we stopped in gallup new mexico at a shady, shady hotel. Had a bit of a tiff with management that they backed down from as soon as we asked them how someone was able to come into our locked room the night before. The lady said the guy who walked in a master key and blamed them for going to the wrong room. we made a little video before we left:

Our hotel had an interesting key policy

and for those who want some wheeling, here's us on little sluice:
Little Sluice

Was an amazing road trip with tons of fun, and it seems like that video is going to cover our gas money for the whole trip.

You're pretty ugly, but your boyfriend has a kinda cute smile.

I've always wondered, does the poster of the video get a cut of that ad revenue and if so how well does it pay?

They do. That's why he's spamming it all over the upper and lower forty. Gotta get the views to get the scrilla.

I heard the YouTube pays about $4,000 for every 1 million hits on monetized videos. I don't recall where I heard it and I don't know if it's true.

@DirtyComanche: damn strait, with any luck this will pay for 4000 miles worth of gas. @southernfriedcj8 i got a small advance and my "media company" takes a cut of any revenue. hopefully it will pay out more than my advance @LigBoozer: mine is the LJ, don't saddle me with one of those sissy rides.

also, i feel a little like seinfeld.... "We're NOT gay! (not that there's anything wrong with that....)

Soon as it hits $100 they will cut a check to you, if you read your Adsense info you would know this

Hopefully it makes you a few pennies, so you can clean that shit off your face.

Jeep bros, JK's, sketchy motels, the only thing missing is a gimp.

Oh, hey, look who's here.

Laying down salt leads to rusty undercarriages.

So nobody thinks it's pretty weird that there's a hotel where all keys open all doors? I will have to check every hotel I go to now.

True. I dont expect most of you to respect the fact that i drive a wrangler (even if it is an LJ) and i AM shamelessly driving views, but i gotta tell you Cali folks.... That was one hell of a trail. I hate to say it, but we dont have them like that in Texas. She's a beauty that I hope we can keep open forever.
