Thereis a great story behind target="_blank">DrawingYouTube. target="_blank">Marcoseijicontacted our video target="_blank">Czarinastyle='color:windowtext'>Mia about his channel. It wasa simple message that said he felt his channel could make a lot of YouTube users happy. When Mia checked it out, she was in awe and asked Marco to make a compilation video for a possible feature. This all happened yesterday within about three hours (despite the Brazil-San Francisco time difference) and the video made it to the homepage the same day.
Keep on Tubin',
