Did you see the video of a guy trying to take a selfie in front of a passing train who got kicked in the head by a worker on that train?

He could make $250,000 off that video.

Jared Michael Frank is turning his Internet fame into fortune. The video has over 25 million views on YouTube, and companies are in a rush to piggyback on it, offering Frank thousands of dollars in advertising and licensing deals.

Estimates are that Frank could net anywhere from $30,000 to $250,000.

"I'm a little worried, but I have a decent relationship with the licensing company, so I trust them," Frank said. "I did a lot of research first."

Frank plans to use the money to pay for his recent trip to Peru, where the video was taken, and to go to film school.
