It is really sad and weird that a trillion dollar corporation like google is not sharing a considerable ad money with these kind of awesome content creators like Kurzgesagt. These people are the backbone of youtube. Without them youtube is nothing. RStoolss should at least share the profit from what premium users like me are paying. Instead these people are depend upon patrons and merchandise business. The profit sharing model they introduced with news agencies in Australia, they should implement for the content creators as well.
