The honor of one of our Top Gainers this week goes to Coby Persin aka Model Pranksters aka zipkid99.
The YouTube home of a risque, controversial, and morally questionable mix of prank videos and “social experiments” had a particularly good week on the internet. Persin uploaded his modern interpretation of To Catch A Predator, showing just how easy it is to lure unsuspecting pre-and-early-teens to meet up in strange locales with strange men. And it lured a lot of eyeballs to his online videos, too. The channel witnessed a week-over-week increase in views of 787% and racked up more than 42.9 million views to top out at #27 on the worldwide chart.
