Can YouTube Hear Me? is a video journal about my trip to California in pursuit of getting YouTube's staff to feature my (incredible) show idea on their main page.
I caught up with Brandon (via IM) to find out more.
Tell us about the show you're trying to get YouTube to feature? (It doesn't seem to be mentioned on the 'Can YouTube Hear Me?' video blog).
I know, I really want it to be a surprise. I won't be unveiling it until they actually sit down with me and guarantee a feature.
Is the show already on YouTube?
But you won't tell me the URL?
Not yet, lol. Be patient Steve.
Surely the best way to get your show featured is to make it good and to get lots of people to subscribe and view the show. Then it will get featured. Why should you get special treatment?
Well, the thing is, it does have a substantial amount of subscribers. Also, I reached out to a YouTube editor via e-mail to ask them if others have been writing to them about the show, and they said "yes". So I'm basically getting to the bottom of it to see why it hasn't been featured yet.
Can I at least ask what genre the show is or what it's about?
It's reality TV entertainment -- that's the most I'll say about it. No one has done something like this online and that's why I'm trying to get it out quickly before someone else capitalizes on an idea that is similar.
Who is behind the show?
I handled EVERY aspect of the show, from the director, producer, cameraman, editor, etc. to the legal work. Eventually I will assemble a team of people who are all smarter than me!
Thanks for your time Brandon.

Update: A reader has emailed in to say that Can YouTube Hear Me? was obviously inspired by Aaron Stanton's 'Can Google Hear Me', a campaign to get Google to listen to Aaron's business idea.
