Potato Gets 490 Million Views on YouTube

STOCKHOLM - Sweden - A ten hour video of a potato on a table has received 490 million views on video clip site YouTube.


“People love this video. It’s a sign of our times, where people are entertained by the ordinary and do not want anything with any substance,” Tony Mathis, a YouTube content manager revealed.

Lars Hendrickson, 21, uploaded the video two years ago and gets an income of $14.2 million per year for the ten hour YouTube masterpiece.

“My next projects are carrots, a single grape and half eaten tomato,” Hendrickson said from his Stockholm luxury apartment.

The potato’s fan base has risen now to over 260 million subscribers, which is a record for any vegetable.
