Lee: Hi. I'm Lee Newton here with Charlie McDonnell.

Charlie: Hello.

L: Hi guys. So you just got off main stage.

C: It was lovely. There were lots of people very excited to see me so that was nice. I did a very short talk that I was not massively prepared for but it went OK. I said words in coherent sentences and they all cheered and then I went off and that was, that was it.

A lot of people see my videos so it's very easy for me to... Like I've done talks before, business type talks for people who don't know anything about YouTube at all.

L: Laughing along as you go. That's awesome, awesome. I wanted to point out Charlie's socks. Look at those gorgeous, gorgeous socks.

C: Thank you. This is my "Real Life Charlie" t-shirt.

L: I love it!

C: That I bought just for VidCon.

L: Now you're at your booth for how long?

C: This year at VidCon I just want to meet as many people as I possibly can.

L: That's awesome.

C: And so I'm gonna be signing, like, I think today it's seven hours signing and tomorrow it's nine hours, so sixteen hours signing in total.

L: Sixteen hour signing.

C: I want to meet as many people as I can 'cause I really like to meet people who watch my videos. It's just an enjoyable thing for me. I don't know what it's going to be like, it's just sort of an experiment for me, just see if I can manage it.

L: Do you think you're gonna retain any names.

C: No. I wanted to get a little counter as well so I could count how many people were coming but I, I, yeah.

L: We need to get Charlie a counter. What other things do you have upcoming?

C: Currently I'm, you know, working on my YouTube videos, writing a short film as well, so I'm very busy. I have no idea how long it will take. I've never done anything like it before.

L: Alright guys. Well thanks for tuning in with us, for Charlie McDonnell, and we look forwarding to seeing you later. Check in later for more awesome.
