    2014 most popular YouTube channel with over 380 million views a month. I don't know exactly how this works but I think YouTube pays you based on hits from ad revenue.

    Pets doing silly things and even Taylor Swift's latest video may generate millions of views, but it's a video that shows a woman removing toys out of packaged that is the internet's top earner.

    According to a video analytics platform called OpenSlate, the highest YouTube earner of 2014 made nearly $5 million just by opening Disney toy packages.

    The DC Toys Collector YouTube channel features a woman removing the toys and then putting them together.

    The channel features over 1,600 videos and gets 380 million views a month.

    Its most-played video is Play-Doh Sparkle Disney Princesses. The video has been viewed more than 172 million times since it was posted in July.

    Unboxing is a relatively new genre of YouTube videos, and DC Toys Collector struck while the iron was hot.

    Only the narrator's hands and the product being unboxed are usually seen.

    Despite the channel's massive, sweeping, and somewhat perplexing popularity, no one — neither the toddlers who watch it along with their parents, nor executives at YouTube seem to know who is behind it.

    Children love the videos. One uploaded to DC Toys Collector's channel on Friday called Teletubbies Stacking Cups Surprise Eggs Play-Doh already has 200,000 views.

    All her videos start the same way with the toy being introduced. The woman then goes on to open and 'play' with the children's toy pointing out various 'adorable' features.

    Dane Golden, who works in the YouTube channel ecosystem as the VP of marketing at Octoly has followed Disney Collector for some time.

    'What I believe to be true is that kids are loving this because the woman never shows her face,' Golden said to BuzzFeed.

    'You never see anything but her well-manicured hands. She has a very comforting voice. It's just like playing with other kids playing toys. I think she disappears in the mind of the children.'

    Be prepared to get sick. This is the second most popular channel on YouTube by a ranking service called Social Blade. Estimated earnings are $1.1 to $18.1 million a year. It must be hard to get exact estimates with this wide a range. Closely guarded secret from YouTube and the YouTube partner. I don't know who watches this shit but the channel has generated 7.5 billion views. PewDiePie:

    They used to sell these at the gas station until they banned them here. My friends wife got a clone trooper and gave it to me because she knew I was into Star Wars .

    My kid watches idiots like this and it does make me sick. I do my best to get him not to by mocking them whenever I hear it playing. He thinks they are funny / cool, but he's just turned 14 and I think there still might be some hope for him.

    There are tons of videos. You have to keep loading more and more. Here is one with with 57 million views. The way this thing works is once you develop a huge following YouTube contacts you and ask you to become a featured partner where you will share in ad revenue. Not everyone gets rich on YouTube but many people are able to generate a decent income. This woman is at the top of food chain. As I said the income is closely guarded secret, it's possible this woman earns way more than $5 million a year.

    Definitely not Japanese. (I live in Japan, so I have a good idea of what the accent sounds like.) My guess would be European?

    That video was strangely fascinating. My husband and I watched it till the end. :surprised:

    Does anyone remember back in the old days when a person would need to go to school for years and years, write endless papers and study late into the night in hopes of getting a great job to support a family. Or learn a trade and become an apprentice for years to earn your journeyman status?

    When did life become so easy to stay hope and the world PAYS you to do NOTHING? :facepalm:

    There are so many vomitus people on YouTube. Did you see that "star" Miranda sings that Seinfeld had in his comedians in cars getting coffee? She gets a lot of hits and is the most unfunny, cancer ridden crap out there.
