but did they make money off of the video, was it branded?

If not, then it was a great promo, even without seeing it, I've 'seen' the buzz.

We are probably be talking about different things.

I am talking about my Quarters game I wrote several years ago -- you can play it here:

You see, in December 1999, I wrote a Macintosh freeware application that did the same thing as shown above. I placed a link on my web-site to download the application, namely:

I then contacted several shareware sites online and gave them the link for them to use/advertise.

In February of 2000, Mac World ran an article and mentioned my Quarters game. Several other magazines followed with similar articles. As a result, my site experienced thousands of downloads and many of the shareware sites I shared my link with reported similar activity.

Over the following decade, I received lot's of paying request for the secret to the game.

However, what I did was pretty simple -- there was nothing outstanding. There was no video, nor branding, it was just an interesting experience *for me*.
