They can’t control clicks- they produce content and people click on what they like. The latest videos they made on the 130 they discussed the issues they had, he even said he liked the 110 it just didn’t work out. On a positive note the 130 fared really well against the Kia and Audi station wagon…Yeah, you're totally right. I mean, they had posted a video from just a couple weeks earlier where the Defender made a fool out of a Gladiator on far tougher, more rocky terrain, but that got hardly any clicks.
But the video where they line up 3 feet from a square edged rock and floored it, popping the tire, got way more views, and they made way more money off it.
So yeah, you're right, they're not morons - they're geniuses.
