Huh?! Click ^ to learn about these thrill-seeker sports…
Have YOU tried any of these? Or perhaps you’re more like me and prefer to watch others take all the risks while you get your pulse racing from the safe comfort of the couch.
Either way, Adventure/Action Sports + YouTube are where adrenaline junkies with a camera and viewers with a screen meet on common ground.
How High Is That Ground?
VideoAmigo took a look at more than 53,000 channels in our Adventure/Action Sports Theme and found that:
- The top 21 YouTube Channels in this Theme (as of July 31, 2019) accumulated more than 35 billion(!) Lifetime Views combined.
- Five of those top 21 are in the Top 1,000 list of channels across ALL* of YouTube (based on Lifetime Views), and all 21 are in the Top 5,000.
