Filmmaker Sam Newton first caught our attention with his tongue-in-cheek song Camera Man. But when it comes to his funny videos, it gets even better. He recently called out PeterMcKinnon in another hilarious music video. And guess what happened: Peter saw it, loved it, and even made his own video about it, which brought Sam over 25,000 subscribers in three days.

Okay, here’s how it all started. Sam made a rap song about his favorite YouTubers, Peter McKinnon being one of them. He just wanted to attract their attention, and he put quite a lot of effort into the production. I must notice that his rapping skills are also pretty great, and the lyrics are really funny. Of course, it’s all a big joke, and Sam points out that he really respects Peter and his work.

Apparently, Peter’s friends and followers saw the video and started sending him the link. He watched it… and he loved it.

Peter even made a video reacting to it and shared it with his 5.2 million followers, telling them to go and follow Sam. Peter points out that Sam could have just sent an email or tag him in a Tweet or an Instagram post. However, he took it on a much higher level and made something to get his attention. And he made something pretty high-quality, too.

But it doesn’t end there. Sam was thrilled to discover that Peter shared his video. So he made another one where he shared a bit of a backstory. He pointed out again that he admires Peter and his work. He speaks about how he made the beat along with Marco Leclerc and how the video was made. With the help of his team, Sam made this video to get Peter’s attention – and he really got it. What’s more, many other YouTubers that he admires also saw his video and left comments, so he apparently managed to get the attention of all of them.

I find this whole story quite amusing, even heartwarming. I feel like I saw a new friendship as it’s being born, and it feels good. Of course, I’m not saying you should call other people out. If you do it, let it always be in good faith and with good taste.

      Guido Van Damme this guy editing photos, he added mountain in desert and there is snow on mountain. But, that is not biggest problem, mountain is lit from right and tree in foreground has shadow on right, which means he is living on planet with 2 suns.

      Pawel Koyfman well, he’s a multi talented photographer and filmmaker ~ he’s even had one of his photographs of Moraine Lake in Canada minted/made into Canadian currency.

      Extremely informative channel that he runs on YouTube and has definitely earned the respect of millions of creatives around the world.

      Not so much of a nobody as you may think, Guido.

    As a subscriber of Peter McKinnon (photographer & filmmaker) on YouTube, I thought Sam Newton’s music video was pretty cool especially with the hit list and so was Peter’s reaction video. What a way to really get a creators attention you admire and really show what you can do. And no I don’t think an Instagram post would have had the same reaction. Now I wonder in a few years, who will be the next Sam Newton and will they take it to another level too?

    Yes I do now subscribe to Sam Newton Media.
