The \"Valentine's Day Video\" (also known as \"The V-Day Vid\" or \"The Video That Shall Not Be Named\") is an extremely personal video made by Phil for Dan as a Valentine's Day present. Discussing this video is highly discouraged and often met with scorn by the Phandom as most fans believe this to be extremely invasive and rude. According to Dan, it was originally intended to be an April Fool's joke video, with Phil expressing his love for Dan and reminiscing their time spent together. The video was posted privately on LessAmazingPhil on February 13th, 2010, apparently with the intention of being unprivated on April Fool's Day.
On September 17th, 2011, the video was unintentionally unprivated by a YouTube glitch. Phil promptly removed the video, but during the three hours it was online, it garnered several views and at least one person saved it. Due to the comparatively small size of the Phandom at that time, the video did not spread far. Phil personally contacted fans who had seen it, explaining that it was originally intended to be a prank for April Fool's Day 2010 that was never used and asked them not to spread it.
However on October 31st, 2012, the video resurfaced. The footage was reuploaded and circulated on Tumblr and went viral among the now much-larger Phandom. Fans who saw the video were unaware of the supposed \"joke\" context, and it spread rapidly. Dan and Phil took action immediately. Phil claimed copyright infringement on every reposted copy and had them removed from YouTube, and Dan repeatedly answered asks about the video on his Tumblr, explaining it as a prank that they decided was \"too mean\" to go through with.
The video has occasionally resurfaced since then but has been systematically removed by Phil. Recently, however, copies have been knowingly left available. Copies of the video exist on platforms apart from YouTube and Tumblr as these platforms are less likely to strictly enforce copyright. Spreading the video, however, is still considered copyright infringement against the two and a huge invasion of Dan and Phil's privacy.
November 29 to December 4This is \"the week we spent together in my house\" that Phil refers to at another point in the video, so if you want details about that week, head over to that post.
The range fluctuates this much because many factors come into play when calculating a CPM. Quality of traffic, source country, niche type of video, price of specific ads, adblock, the actual click rate, watch time and etc.
Also, I have linked to relevant YouTube videos wherever possible, so you can check out Dan and Phil looking like cute little babies in Jamaica in 2010, goofing off with PJ and Chris in Italy in 2011, or appearing at various conventions over the years, that sort of thing.
Just wanted to let people know that I continue to update my phan timeline. I know it is most useful for the early years, but if you need handy reminders about the dates of more recent events, you can consult it for those as well.
I just wanted to let folks know that the phan timeline I created is now linked directly from my main blog page, so it should be easier to find if/when you need it for reference purposes. Just a little public service announcement. :)

The December 2008 holidays offered a perfect time to commit to regular uploads, and her viewership grew quickly. Michelle received a great response to the increase in uploads, so she released eight new videos in January 2009. The channel reached 1.5 million views that month. Her dedication to the platform continued to grow in 2009, making it a critical year for the channel.
October is still a strong month for the channel each year. Overall, Halloween-themed videos averaged 150% more views than other videos and drove 17% of all views on the channel in 2013. In addition, these Halloween-themed videos never get old and contribute new traffic every year.
Since then, these story-driven videos have become fan favorites. In 2013 they generated the highest average views per video at 1.8 million and attracted twice as many views from subscribers as other videos. 153554b96e
