YouTube Content Boss: I Don’t Know ‘What Percentage of People…Think We’re a Porn Site’

TCA 2017: But Susanne Daniels sure gets a kick out of the jokes

YouPorn is a popular adult video hub website. So is RedTube. YouTube Red is not a pornography video channel, it’s YouTube’s ad-supported video on demand (AVOD) offering. That can get confusing.

At Friday’s Television Critics Association press tour, one reporter earnestly asked Susanne Daniels if she knows how many people actually confuse her service for one of the porno websites.

“Honestly, we have a lot of data,” YouTube’s global head of Original Content replied. “And I have not asked that question.”

“I don’t know,” she continued. “I have not asked Research to tell me, like, what percentage of people really do think we’re a porn site.”

“But…those jokes make me laugh every time that I see them,” Daniels added.

Then she should really love “Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television,” the YouTube Red original comedy that regularly references the titular similarities among the Internet’s very different services.
