The VRIFY videos featuring an over-the-top promotional CEO went viral and for good reason: every junior mining speculator recognizes the cliches and knows a CEO (or three) like that!

It takes a certain amount of chutzpah for an authentic junior exploreco to pull off such a marketing campaign. Ridgeline Minerals $RDG managed it with an April Fool's Day promo video that won FinTwit and has generated more than 8,000 views on the company's YouTube channel (which has 28 subscribers). Disclosure: I own Ridgeline shares, cover the company in my newsletter and wrote a recent feature on them.
