YouTube God Ray William Johnson

The Internet is Powered By Cats

11/8/2011 10:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1108_ray_william_launchRay William Johnson is a cyber-legend -- with more than 1.4 BILLION views on his YouTube channel -- and last night, he revealed a shocking secret about the Internet ...  IT'S CONTROLLED BY CAT PEOPLE!!!

Johnson -- who hosts the YouTube series "Equals 3" -- tells us, nothing goes viral faster than a video with a hapless feline (or a cute baby) ... and if you can capitalize on that, you'll be making bank as a YouTube star in no time.

RWJ also takes credit for launching Nyan Cat to infamy -- a viral video with nearly 50 million views (below). What have we become?

Please the original Nyancat was and still is a website with a counter to see how long you could las*****ching. I do not like RWJ because he finds videos on youtube. proceeds to rip the video. give no credit to the user and puts it in his video clips.

My niece she plays that piece of crap every morning before she goes to school to wake me up. It's very annoying.
