By giving away free taho, aspiring YouTuber earns over 200K subscribers
Gimmy Panis Conos, a vendor from Quezon City who gives away free taho in a hope to increase his subscribers on his YouTube channel, received more than what he asked for from Filipinos online.
Conos was handing out free taho in Quezon City when he caught the attention of a netizen, a certain Helios (@lionizcute), who posted his photos on Twitter last Friday, April 9.
Whole story pero he said na "boss pwedeng pa subscribe to my channel sa pilipinas kasi ngayon lahat bawal na " so naawa ako and binayaran ko nalang yung taho plus i gave him a small amount i only could do this, spreading his channel hope u could help him.
