Maker Studios Ties With Viral Video Company Jukin

Los Angeles-based Maker Studios has partnered with Jukin Media, which operates a number of YouTube channels focused on viral videos, the two companies said Thursday. Financial details of the partnership were not announced. According to the two, they will launch a standalone website for Jukin's viral video channel, FailArmy, along with other efforts to monetize Jukin Media's various channels. Fail Army's YouTube channel features Internet "fails" -- think alcohol, a GoPro, and and overload of testosterone and Red Bull--which it compiles into weekly compendiums.
