Some YouTubers are willing to do the craziest things to get subscribers, and who knows, there may have been others that have done this, but I’m not aware of anyone else who promised to make a sex tape if she hits 1 million subscribers.
She is kind of a hottie, so it may be worth it to contact 900,000 of your friends and let them in on this deal.
(H/T: The LADbible)
YouTubers sure do some crazy stuff in order to get themselves a few more subscribers.
You have the ‘pranksters’ like OckTV and Adam Saleh who it seems will do anything in order to get a few extra viewers – whether they’re trying to nick people’s phones, pretending to steal from homeless people or getting thrown off flights.
Then you have people like Onision, who applies the same logic of ‘go in on everyone and it will get publicity’ that 50 Cent does in hip-hop, to the vlogging world, but just ends up coming across as a bit of a prick, frankly.
And now a vlogger has posted a video to YouTube saying that when she and one of her fellow vloggers reach a million subscribers they will make a sex tape together.
Lena Nersesian, who lives in Los Angeles, spoke about her plans in a new video titled: “$EXTAPE AT 1 MILL.”
YouTube Adam22, who produces and stars in the No Jumper account on the Google-owned site, will star in the sex tape alongside Lena.
It does slightly beg the question what vlogger and YouTubers will say and do for publicity.
Watch her announcement here…
Speaking on her channel, she said: “You may or may not have heard that I am planning on making a sex tape when I hit a million subscribers.
“I have been approached to do porn multiple times in the last year, putting provocative pictures on the Internet will get you such offers but it’s never been something I’ve been interested in, or tempted by.
“I don’t want to do porn and I really have no interest in doing it. But a sex tape with someone that I’m seeing and totally comfortable having sex with – that sounds cool to me.”

“If you want to see me get fucked then you should subscribe to my channel,” she added.
This video is the latest in a recent trend of YouTube’s making public commitments they will honour when they reach subscription milestones.
PewDiePie’s Big Deletion Pledge
In December, PewDiePie claimed he would delete his account upon reaching 50 million followers.
Of course, he didn’t.
It turned out that when PewDie – real name Felix Kjellberg – said he was going to ‘delete his channel’, he really meant his side-account ‘Jack septiceye2’.
In fact, to mark his 50,000,000 subscribers (to put that in perspective, 53 million people live in England), YouTube sent him a trophy for being the first YouTuber to reach the milestone.
So it rather bodes the question of where the line is drawn when it comes to gaining publicity. How far do you go? How edgy do you get? How many pranks do you have to do? Does it matter if people get hurt?
Nersesian will no doubt be successful in her endeavour, and whether or not she goes ahead with our pledge, is it not a little excessive in the drive for global fame?
