There is a hissss :(

2 misterpro

Bahahaha hilarious. I’ll also be using the one method tonight where you &&@#^(*@*#%&^@%*& then you tie it into the ads on facebook. All you do is &*#%^@#*^ then you get an ROI of 20 within 2 hours. LOL

3 Toivo Lainevool

Wow, what a brilliant, easy idea. I’m sure I’ll be able to make a couple of grand off of this tonight! Thanks Shoemoney!

4 Hustle Strategy

Gotta love the “Wer’re sorry, this video is no longer available.” Not sure if it was taken down or just messed up temporarily…

5 Paul

Is this your viral video?

6 Zak Show

Hey, There are something wrong with the sound ! when i get the the ” create and account at facebook ” @@@@@@@@@@ That’s it !

7 Bruno Silva

April 1st – Fools Day – I demand my $1000 :D

8 lawrence lugar

i couldn’t understand you – there is an obvious sound problem.

re-do it, with fixed sound…
so i can learn how to make $1000/hour

9 Jeremy


I think I could ad lib what you are saying (carefully reading lips), but not sure how to proceed (precise action items/next steps).

Do you mind re-recording the sound so all of us fans, can also follow along.

10 teamray

post is obviously a joke

very funny shoe

11 Gil Megidish

Yeah! Worked for me! Thanks for the tip, shoemonkey!
I’m filthy rich and bathe in champagne!

12 Terra Andersen

13 xorsyst

I can’t believe its that easy! You rock Shoe.

14 Marco

Haha! Very original, going to try it right now! I’ll get back to you if it didn’t work.

15 Royal Radande

That was a nice one!

16 Tyson Williams

Hey What’s up with the audio? I want my $1,000 now!

17 MillionEuroMan

I think I’m going offline for a day or two – can’t believe anything today….. :)

18 Tyson Williams

Hey what’s up with the audio… I want my $1,000 now!

19 Lisa Marie Mary

Totally awesome, dude! I’m already working on it, and the cash is starting to trickle in… totally cool! You so rock, man!

20 BigPappa

Ha ha ha….Yep, that’s great. I was actually sitting on the edge of my seat. Ha ha ha.

21 Mike

John Chow talked about shit.

Seems shoe’y just did shit….


22 Tim Spangler

i lol’d

23 Lisa

I was really excited for like 2 minutes. :)

24 Jason

Well the cat’s out of the bag now… everyone and their brother are going to be doing this and pretty soon the strategy won’t even bring in $1/hour. :(

25 Tim L. Walker

Classic! And people are even falling for it. lol.

26 Dom

Worked fine for me. I just made $5.5k in under 2 hours!

27 Chad Frederiksen

great, knocked further down in the serps for “$1,000 hour” by a prank vid :)

28 Rob

So I think if I can read between the lines… you’re saying it’s all about creating “static” pages… I get it now…. thanks for the tip.

29 mubin

You expect something like this from Lost or Heroe’s where you hear enough just to get interested, but not enough to explain.

Should have put a dharma logo at the end show.

30 Dan

Is this an april fools gig???

31 PPCblogger

you couldnt keep a straight face, even right from the start…. ;)

32 RobertG

Can I get a transcript please? Thanks a thousand!

33 Thor Schrock

PURE linkbait but man that was some funny stuff!

34 Mark

Man…. I think I just lost $1000 worth of laughter!!

Whats today anyway? Great post…

35 Rekzai

Wow great advice I made $3,212 already

36 Syed Balkhi

I couldn’t hear a darn thing you said … Maybe reuploading the video ??

37 Israel

just lost time in my life i will never get back. neither funny, nor very original. plus the static was really load and annoying. i think i have officially lost respect for this site…

38 POOPeGifts_com

I CAN still send out orders you know. Day early april fool jokes are LAME.

39 Jason

Took me 3 hours for $5k, but still, I’m lovin it!

(If you’re having problems with the audio, this tip is worth buying new speakers!)


Register at my site and get the real video without the static.

41 Barbara

Fantastic. LOL. Thanks for that.

42 joe

Sound is messed up.

43 joe

AHHHH damn it!!!!

44 Solo Programmer

At least problogger is in Australia so he has an excuse for being “early”

45 Joe

Yep worked for me too. I’m only at $2.6K but I’ve only done it for about 45 min. now. Hurry up and get your speaker fixed Lawrence before it becomes saturated!

46 Dave

April Fools everyone. please stop taking yourselves so seriously.

47 Bill

Know the feeling, you had a idea. Then saw it somewhere else later. This is one of those mements for me. LOL

48 Lingo

Prank = Stupid

Comments still coming thru frm people asking for video to be uploaded again because of sound issues = Bloody Hilarious

49 Pyjammez

lame lame LAME!

50 Vizion

LMFAO! I knew from the title it was a joke and once the static hit man…i honestly couldn’t stop laughing…then my 3 yr old joins in…lol CLASSIC!

51 CPA Affiliates

*L* man shoe i was waiting for you to do something like this just for kicks :) The funny thing is there are probably some people BLARING their speakers trying to figure out the words thru the static.

52 Justin

WTH! I emailed you that in confidence! Anyway have fun everyone there’s a ton of money to be made with this.

53 The Story Lady

HAHAHA! Making fun of the get-rich-quickers, are you???

thanks for the laugh!

The Story Lady

54 Echo

figured it was junk

55 Think Like An SOB

I havent even seen the video, but just reading the comments above, I made $2000 in an hour.

56 Niche Store Strategies

I don’t know why others are complaining about the sound. It was fine for me. Excellent advice! Thanks for sharing : )

57 browie

Good video I love it…. You kind of got me since i hit the “rewind button” but that is pretty good. You really give it your all trying to act like you’re giving away some secret advice and then we’re trying to hear and LOL I like it.

58 jim

it was a whole minute… get a grip hahahaha

59 jim

It’s back up now, it’s a really good video

60 big money

Mr. Shoemoney, I believe your video is inoperable. It is not April Fools day either just so you know. I haven’t seen Mr. Shoemoney post any comment so maybe there is something wrong with the video and it will be fixed later. Either way, I saw the picture of Mr. Shoemoney in the video preview screen and that was enough to make me about $3000 over the last 3 hours. If you are someone who can’t figure out how to do it, then you’ve got some practicing to do.

61 Affiliate Confession

I already did this. This is so 2007, not new at all.

62 Hafiz Dhanani

Happy april fools to you too!

63 Affiliate Confession

I made that much in 15 minutes. This is so easy I can believe everyone isn’t doing it.

64 Affiliate Confession

I heard it fine and made $1,000 in just under 5 minutes! I’m going to do my own video now and show people how to make even more with this technique.

65 Bob Buskirk

download the file and play it backwards…..

66 Shane

I knew those lip reading classes would come in handy one day!


Great sound quality. Facebook will create a lot traffic if used properly.

68 BANS Blog

It works! Fantastic stuff.

69 Travis

You’re going to make $10,000 just from all the inbound traffic to this video, and the search engine hits for “$1000 in 1 hour”

Aprils Fool, Very funny keep up the good work.

71 Pete from Home Made Online Income

Great Post !!! Only one thing though, the first time i listened to it there was a lot of static.

But after i installed my NEW, Static-Clean-Super-Dooper-Buster-Pro 2008 Limited Edition (Only Available To The Next 14 342 654 124 987 132 765 people for just $999.99), everything was just fine !!! Click Here To Purchase Today…

72 Terry Tay

I just made a few thousand in the last hour because of this video. Thanks Shoe ;-)

73 Jimmy Daniels

LOL. I hope you let us know how much traffic you get from this in the future, brilliant.

74 Kn10

I imported the video and cleaned up the sound issues. Tried this method on facebook and it works great! Thanks Shoe

75 joe

your ideas suck. I did everything you said and it didn’t work.

76 Cooper

Shoe…. last years was better…. but nice!

77 Sean W

“I will give you ‘sand bucks tonight” – I would laugh too…

“Mix them all to-, in between, all the way around and whatever.”

This method is amazing! I love the trickle effect of money. I am now making it rain with the social networks…

What do you guys mean “sound problems”?

78 Jeff

Hey everyone i imported and cleaned up the audio! You can check it out here.

i just made 2.3k in 2 hours. thanks shoe!

79 Ranked Hard

I used a special audio program to eliminate the static, and am now well on my way towards raking it in.

80 Ranked Hard

My god….I just did that and I think I’m going to have nightmares tonight.

81 Myo Kyaw Htun


82 Yudhi Baskoro

Happy April fool to all :D

83 Inventors

That was a good one – I am pretty sure many are still trying to figure it out, increasing the volume of their speakers. :-)

84 Purposeinc

I am pissed. I followed the steps for like 8 hours today and only made $294.
I think you left something out!

85 Tyler

Shoe is being modest (as usual). If you really dive into what he’s saying, you can pull down 3-4K by tomorrow night.

86 Affiliate Confession

That must have been the part we couldn’t hear.

87 Funky South

I made, $520 so far – how is every1 else doing ?

88 Syed Balkhi

I’ll watch your video instead so i can hear better :p

89 John Motson

Wow Jeremy,

Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!

You just made my day. I needed $1000 to pay of a mob boss I had been oweing and having had to spend my last dime on some learning ebooks I didn’t know where those $1000 bux would come from but now you have saved me from getting my legs broken.

This is the quickest, easiest $1000 bux I have ever made in my entire life.

Thank you and God bless you.


90 John Cow

We see a glamorous Digg headline – Worst Actor Ever. =)

91 DotDriven

Damnit Shoe, You keep giving away my secrets and blowing apart the best strategies by telling all the noobs. Now I gotta come up with something else!!! >:(

92 Daniel

Well guys an gals this technique didn’t work for me. =( I tried it like 3 times and shoe held to his guarantee and paypal’d me a 1000 bucks!!! Thx Shoe! He was right, easiest $1k to date!

93 Leon

Thanks for that shoe. Very useful. By the way, are you OK? I saw a report that you’d had to go into hiding ..? It’s here:

94 Keylogger Hater

Thanks, Shoe! It was a great advice, i’ve just made a thousands of buxes in a one minute! No more!

95 Affiliate Confession

That’s a funny video dude!

96 Tim

I’m sorry but I had to forward this on to the Facebook account fraud department. I don’t know how you can encourage people to create “several social profiles” and still sleep well at night. I mean, I knew you were into some shady things, but this is too much.

97 Karn Patel

haha, good joke.

98 Hjörtur Smárason

Great tips man, works amazingly well. :D

ps. What´s that hiss sound people are talking about???

99 Anonymous

ITT: people who sit around waiting for Shoe to tell them how to make money instead of going out and learning themselves.

Hilarious joke, by the way. Great way to reel people in, especially the leeches and freeloaders. :)

100 Joshua

Man, this sucks! I just lost $2,500.00 by following these methods.

101 Ben Cook

Dude, if you didn’t even try the method I don’t see how you can demand your $1k. Just follow the directions on the video and you’ll make plenty.

102 John

Happy April Fools

103 Philipp Sch.

Ive allready analyzed this Video several times ago, but everytime on the same Lenght of the Video there is maybe an Error occuring or something!! I cant hear the real interesting stuff!!!!

Please reupload a better version again!!
thanks!! Philipp Sch.

104 Ryan

Shoe this was incredible…you should have seen the people that flocked to this one

105 Robert MacEwan

Hrm, this only brought in $462.50 in the last 12 hours. Kelly’s transcripts helped in understanding the rest of your video so thanks for the link.

106 samo

lol. I’ve been waiting MONTHS to see what you were going to do on 1st of April. Since your post about how excited you were waiting for it :-)

Was it as good as you hoped? I bet its been a biitch waiting to post that vid :-)

107 big money

OH wait nevermind! I guess there really was a video that was supposed to load up, it didn’t load up the first time I tried to play it. HAHAHA!

108 Hustle Strategy

Yep definitely worth watching.

109 Flimjo

good stuff. I laughed when the static started coming in.

110 Flimjo

Yea. It’s a joke video, and he makes tons of money off of it. Amazing.

111 samo

p.s you think your video is a good April fools joke Shoe, check this out! lol It’s the best april fools joke ever! (i hope)

112 Luke

Haha, this is funny. Great one. I will definitely use this to make $1000/hr for the rest of my life.

So THIS is how Bill Gates did it! Wow, thanks for the tidbit! Just made a fortune in the past couple hours myself!


DOes this method still work? I’ve tried it and made only something like $900 for an hour, and that was all.

116 Agent 001

Hey do you think yourself intelligent enough to fool me then let me tell you what I observed.Your facial expressions near 0.16 seconds showed that you are going to lie.Before that you were feeling guilty, your face say so..I did not watch you whole video or I would have ended writing a good post for your blog.

Want to know who I am to say so much.I am an expert in these things.Do not visit my blog.You are not intelligent enough to catch me.

117 Meethere

Shoemoney readers are smart enough to get fooled :D

118 Ebony Ivory

Tu huh huh huh huh…

You couldn’t even keep the smile from your face!

119 Jeff Jones


I’ve known it was April 1 all day and still fell for it.

Keep up the good work!

Well, I guess I am one of the only few who didn’t find the Aprils Fool joke so funny.
Smart move though to get tons of traffic with such a catchy title and video ;)

Late April Fool´s best wishes to Shoemoney and to EVERYONE! ;P

126 Mike

Good job! The first reply alone makes it a success. :P

127 Max Miroff

My favorite part about this was that innovative new tactic that you proposed for marketing f&%$^% ^&n%* on ^$&##%. Seriously – those things practically sell themselves! I can’t believe I didn’t think of &#%ing the #%^@^ to %&#&#$&#$& thousands of dollars.

128 Darin Carter

ha ha ha … GREAT!

130 anger management

131 Jorge I. Hernandez

Cool one Shoe….
But I guessed this is an April’s fool video right after you said… “I’ll send you a 1000 dollars”… You smile a little.

Good one anyway.

132 DotComMogul

lol … I listened to it twice because of the hisssss …. almost went out and bought new speakers. Drop by and read my April Fools message.

133 CodeFreedom

I had sound problems too. Love the way this video is viral – has everybody talking – is is true – not true – what ! For me I am scrambling to Facebook now. I need to find out for myself. Regards.

134 Jonathan Volk

HAHAHAHA! By far the best one yet! :D Nice one!

135 DotComMogul

lol … listened to it twice and thought there was something wrong with my speakers. Drop by and see my April Fools post. This one almost cost me a new pair of speakers.

136 Sean W

kinda defeats the purpose… Don’t you think?

138 tudio

tee-hee-hee! well done and great (scary) insight into the minds of your readers

139 Affiliate Confession

Boy, this one is tame compared to some of the other evil ones I’ve come across today.

140 Terry Tay

Yep, John Chow sure got a few people pissed with his 2nd April Fools joke of the day.

No one had anything nasty to say about this one. Happy April Fools :-)


141 The Internet Apprentice

I think I’ve learned to just turn off my computer on April 1st, lol. Still, I liked this one better than the Rick Roll thing, which is everywhere.

142 mr nice guy

Great post. Have a nice day Jeremy

143 borgorbus

Thank you, shoe.

I finally figured out that the one important fact that was covered by the static was

That’s GREAT info Jeremy! Thanks a thousand! I’ve already made my money back!


145 Kali

I can’t image why a big cheese like yourself would ever reveal your secrets! God bless! You’re the best!

146 Jamie

Loved It! Thanks for a great laugh!

147 Greg

Can’t hear the sound? I fixed it — Just do a 301 redirect on the source code and then upload everything to a secure ssl database. Just be sure to disable cookies first, then wrap the file in ASP.

148 Affiliate Confession

Go to John Chow’s April fool’s joke if you want to lose respect, this was nothin.

149 Pogung177

the worst sound video you ever make. Happy april fool

150 Jay

Whoop-Dee-Do! Why would I even waste my time watching a lengthy, one minute video, just to make a thousand bucks? PLUS, I have to spend an hour of my time doing it? Please!


151 Aaron Novak

152 Reynder (SEO)
