Teen Kicked In Head During Viral Train Conductor Video Could Earn Up To $250,000

REGINA, Saskatchewan (UPI) — The Canadian man who became a viral sensation after posting a video of himself getting kicked in the head by a train conductor while trying to take a selfie could be turning his pain into a payday.

Jared Frank was approached by a number of management agencies thanks to his nine-second “Kicked in the head by a train” YouTube video. The clip has already been viewed more than 25 million times.

“I got all these different offers … and they were all legit,” Frank told the CBC. The Regina man elected to sign on with a California-based representative called Jukin Media.

Depending on some variables, Frank’s video could earn him in the range of $2 to $16 per 1,000 views, good for about $30,000 to $250,000 in revenue.

“I’m a little worried, but I have a decent relationship with the licensing company, so I trust them,” Frank said. “I did a lot of research first.”

The 22-year-old plans to spend his earnings on film school.
