Mak sells custom videos as a part-time job. In the description of most of her videos, she states:
"Making custom videos is a part-time summer job for me… I absolutely love doing them but they are not free. My brother and I both work over the summer to save for a car, college, and our own spending money (tough parents!). Doing custom vids is my job choice over paper routes, babysitting, dog walking, etc. There is no difference between a regular video and a custom video other than they are purchased/dedicated to someone special with custom triggers or themes."
On August 8th, 2018, Twitter users began turning clips of Mak's honeycomb video into two separate reaction memes. For example, Twitter user @the_myleg_fish posted a video of Mak drinking seltzer and then taping the can with the caption "Judas taking a sip of wine before betraying Jesus" (shown below).
