What is the Gold Play Button REALLY made of?!?

  • Published on Dec 3, 2016
  • The TheXvid Gold Play Button is one of the most coveted awards a TheXvidr can get. Is it really made of gold? Is the Silver Play button really made out of silver? There is only one way to find out. Watch as we take the Gold and Silver play buttons from the TheXvid channel WhatsInside, and stick them deep inside a $750,000 Electron Microscope that will give us the exact elemental make up of the Gold Play button.
    This is the SAME play button that was cut in half by the Whatsinside TheXvid channel: thexvid.com/video/TfL5ivT_NW0/video.html
    And HERE on Casey Neistats Vlog: thexvid.com/video/SIT8EhUkPxI/video.html
    The Gold Play Button is given to TheXvidrs who reach 1 Million subscribers.
    The Silver Play Button is given to TheXvidrs who reach 100k subscribers.
    There is another award for the few TheXvidrs who reach 10 Million subscribers... Let me know if you have one, and we can asses the elemental make up ;-)
    The Video talks about several different scenarios, but the main point is that the Gold Play button DOES contain REAL GOLD! Which is amazing.
    This video was shot entirely with a Galaxy S7 Edge, and an iPhone 7 Plus. (The computer screen shots were the one filmed with an iPhone. It handled the monitor flicker better, but the audio on iPhone is crap.)

    That actually makes sense as gold won't stick directly to the brass, so they plate it in nickel first then the gold will stick to the nickel. The polishing on the front probably exposed some of the nickel
