He realized, as a parent, that Evan and he were creating quality child-friendly online content, but that the reviews also helped parents when it came to shopping. 'When we first started the channel, we had no intention of making a cent from our videos,' Jared told Fast Company. 'We didn't even know it was possible. 'Our payment came in the form of father-son bonding time and the idea that others were enjoying something we created.' But as the subscribers increased, advertisers began placing their ads on Evan's page, which is where most of the income comes from. 'These include both ads that appear in and around each video as well as products actually featured in our videos,' Jared added to Tech Worm. 'The majority of the revenue is generated by the ads placed on the video itself. 'Outside of the networks, YouTube/Google handles all ad placement within the site. One of their clips, about Angry Birds Space Softee Dough playset, has had a whopping 65 million views. In the review Evan adorably apologizes for his noticeable lisp. 'Sorry if I'm talking a little funny today because I just lost my tooth,' he says in the video. Later, after trying to bite an apple he quips: 'It's too hard to bite without teeth'
