Another great Faircompanies video.
(Some of their videos have over four and five million views. Imagine how popular a major documentary of their best work would be.)

  1. Imagination is not necessary in regards to a documentary. They already put it together last year.

    Here are a few fun facts about Faircompanies YouTube videos… As of a few moments before I started typing this comment:

    74,827 subscribers on their primary YouTube channel
    43,238,018 total views on their videos
    All within the last 7 years.

    Add to that millions of views on their other channels.
