Kipkay has made something of a name for himself on Metacafe with his numerous how-to, hacks, and tech-oriented pranks videos. He’s also made some $100K with the “Producers Rewards” that Metacafe pays for popular vids. And now he’s a YouTube Partner. When I saw the first Kipkay vid, with his super-slick informercial voice, I thought he was another DIY spoof videomaker, a la Mark Erickson’s hysterically goofy Infinite Solutions. In fact, Kipkay may have been Erickson’s inspiration. But Kay’s videos are legit, and while some of them may be over the top and more about garnering eyeballs (and revenue) than anything else, there’s some useful and interesting stuff here.
