I'm surprised it went for that amount, didn't really have a lot of active users on it. Good for Casey Neistat though, always good to see a youtuber branch out from youtube on different projects.

I think the response he got back from the who I'm voting for video may have also been the reason.

I hope this is a massive flop and they just lost every penny. Hate news outlets like CNN who twist people up for views
