On December 30th, 2007, I received a message on YouTube from a rather cryptic username, which read:
I am at Atlantic Records. Love to speak.
Can you send a phone number?
Who was this? Was it legit, or was it someone pretending to be at Atlantic Records? Or if it was someone there, was it someone with any power? Hesitantly, I replied to the e-mail with my e-mail address and phone number.
I was wary about all of these e-mails through YouTube; keep in mind, I had received a lot of weird messages because of the 6 million views we received on our 12 Days video.
