A man that was taking a selfie near a train was kicked in the head by a train conductor. The entire thing was caught on video and was uploaded to YouTube.
Jared Michael Frank became famous after the video clip went viral. It now has around 22 million YouTube videos and now Frank has received tens of thousands of dollars in advertising opportunities. It is believed that Frank could have made anywhere between $30,000 and $250,000 so far.
“I’m a little worried, but I have a decent relationship with the licensing company, so I trust them,” said Frank. “I did a lot of research first.”
Frank lives in Regina, Saskatchewan and he will be using some of the money to pay for his recent trip to Peru where he captured the video. He will also use it to go to film school.
