Youtube is in Kenya. The company had a launch in a Nairobi hotel recently and gave us Youtube.co.ke.
This means a more personalized feel to the whole arrangement and possibly a few bucks too. YAAY J. *insert legendary cash register sound here*.

Have something interesting and boost that to a full hour; that is if the content is interesting.
