If you could have lunch with one person, who would it be? Doug Demuro, who is a famous motoring journalist and YouTuber.  To me, his success means that he knows clearly what car enthusiasts and average YouTube user wants. His 1 million+ views per video means that he knows how to grasp a person’s attention by a simple line of words and a small thumbnail photo, and his 2 millions subscribers prove that he knows how to get people to recognize and trust his “brand”.
