u/EllieBasebellie 2d ago

Also it’s atrociously researched

391

u/ten_dead_dogs 1d ago

The first time iilluminaughtii made a video about something I was extremely familiar with, it was kind of a revelation. "Wait a minute, this is all wrong. It's surface-level recaps without any actual insight into what happened, and some of it is just straight up inaccurate."

And then I was like "...how many of these videos have been the same thing, but I didn't know enough about the subject matter to realize it?"

163

u/GigaSnaight 1d ago

Video essays are dangerous, because a good one is convincing - it is, after all, the job. A good video essayist WILL convince you. Whether it's something consequential like politics, or inconsequential like a movie review. I remember really disliking a movie, only to watch it again and realize I never watched it, just watched someone else explain why it was bad.

I remember the first time I became REALLY aware of it. Someone in some random thread I stumbled in on r/all was explaining details about years old drama in Magic: The Gathering, a subject I know way too much about. They were super confidently explaining the drama wrong, misusing game terms, and gave off the overall vibe that they started playing like last week. And it had thousands of upvoted and some gildings, because if you hadn't thrown your life away to the cardboard crack like me it would seem very correct.

Kind of opened my eyes to the danger of unearned confidence. Confidence is, after all, what puts the con in conmen.

I found a youtuber a while back that would make both funny videos where he makes shit explode, combined with super clear explanations on what he does. Real PASSIONATE about crafting stuff and experimenting.

He didn't upload anything for a while, to the point I forgot about him but a few months later I wondered where he was. Nothing on his YouTube. Nothing new on social medias either. Googled his name, turns out he was involved in some pedophilic affair.

Sometimes I think about it and I wish every influencer would do what he did: OF COURSE I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT THE CRIME but he didn't try to make drama. He just disappeared. That's probably the best thing to do. Just vanish.

This was a real nail in the coffin for AH.

Their chemistry was dropping before this, with few of them really giving a shit about or understanding group cohesion and content creation, but he was a lynchpin of this by being the older "gent" in a lot of videos, same as Jack. Gave it more structure, much like Geoff running videos.

When it all became people making loud noise and aiming for improv, with no-one to corral the group, it became unwatchable for me. Gav will occasionally turn up again and try and start interesting conversations, try and make interesting content with where he's looking, what he's doing and what he's saying, but no-one else even bothers. They just don't understand working as a group, they're all acting like solo streamers doing bits, not mates having fun. (To the point Gavin has literally told people doing bits over the top of others talking to shut up in let's plays...)

The whole "plummet" thing is kind of a half truth, though. A lot of the stuff about their shady business practices and frat-culture that have come out recently lineup almost exactly with the time period most fans look back on as their "peak".

I think it came down to the fact that the guys who founded it didn't really know how to evolve their culture and management practices from "a few guys making stuff together" into a "full business with employees", which led to a lot of shitty hours for employees, people not getting paid on time, a very cliquey company culture, etc.

I don't follow him personally and I imagine he's possibly making money elsewhere.

u/FvHound 2d ago

For a fair amount of time after that, you had loads of people saying how it wasn't really that bad, and accusing others of not having even seen the video, but these same people would never reply to people quoting jon from the video.

u/TheSwedishEzza 2d ago

shadiversity for me, I hate how he seethes and everything calling it "woke"

His only gripe with Matt Walsh is that he thinks animation is for childeren and Shad sees any challenge to social norms as degeneracy.

u/LermMortemrose 2d ago

Another YouTuber called him out on his shit in a segment of a video and in response shad made a multi hour long video claiming they lied about him and took things out of context all the while calling them disgusting and terrible for doing so. Ironically in order to fuel his narrative shad takes things out of context, lies, and assumes things. This was all about the mario movie

u/James_n_mcgraw 1d ago

I used to watch him too, but none of this is super surprising. He is an extremely devout mormon.

He used to kind of keep his religion/politics largely seperate from his videos other than the sword thing that one time. But now hes let it blend in.

Sad but unsurprising.

u/WeaselSlayer 2d ago

He literally just follows the Daily Wire playbook. I actually didn't know him for his sword and medieval stuff. I started watching his Rings of Power reviews. I agreed with a lot of the criticisms of the show's writing, but then once I started hearing him say things like "girlboss moment" and "Guy-ladriel," I was like oh shit lemme see some of his other stuff... clicked a video where he responds to someone at Daily Wire, and says in the first couple minutes that he likes Daily Wire. That was the last of that dude for me.

When I was younger I fucking loved the band "Lostprophets" for more than 15 years I had listened to everything they ever did. Then the news about Ian Watkins came out. I was standing in a children's hostel where I was working for the Department for Child Protection. I had never felt so fucking ill in my life.

u/DerpingtonHerpsworth 2d ago

As someone on the slightly older side of the reddit demographic, this is the first thing in this thread that I recognized.

I had the first two albums and they were in heavy rotation for much of the early 2000s. I even credit that first album as one of just a few that might've kept me from falling into a deeper depression than I was already in. I kinda just drifted away from them after that, but still loved those first two albums.

Haven't been able to really listen to them since I learned about Watkins (once or twice maybe, but otherwise I'd probably be playing them on a much more regular basis). I so badly want to separate the art from the artist, because that first album in particular really meant something to me, but it's hard.

Feels bad, this is a little niche I think but Creepshowart's story time art videos are largely responsible for me getting back into art five years ago, over time I stopped liking her content as much as I don't care much for commentary about youtubers, but then to find out she's literally a stalker/tormenter of another youtube artist I really like for YEARS, icky.

u/Sorlex 2d ago

The worst part is mistakenly giving attention to alt-right youtube. I watched a video from "Critical Drinker" once, youtube saw this and then started recommending me all their echo-chamber hugbox content, just a damn sea of youtubers with skulls in their icons and twenty thousand videos about how terrible Brie Larson is and how a black little mermaid is destroying society.

Oops.

YouTube’s algorithm is so bad about this that I’ve started watching on incognito if it’s an account I’m unfamiliar with and I’m at all suspicious of where their values lie.

on the contrary it's perfectly designed to maximize engagment. too bad it create echo chamber

u/GlassOfDan 2d ago

I found a youtuber at the start of the year for a computer game i like to watch. He became one of my top watched youtubers since his videos were educational and to the point, very descriptive of what was going on and what he was thinking etc etc. Then one day i saw him stream on twitch and i got all excited. After watching his stream i realised that he was insanely content focused, as in when not on a potential video he was really toxic on stream. It was like a mask he put up for the content, and when he was inbetween games he was cursing a lot and complaining about everything in a really self centered manner. When he figured that the current game was not video content he just gave up and started again and was just really boring and obnoxious on stream and towards other people in the game. After that i unsubbed from his channel because i just could not get this experience out of my head every time i saw him on youtube.

u/Literal-Chaos 2d ago

This is the same as a siege youtuber I watch. Seeing their unedited thoughts on twitch really lifts the veil youtube provides and shows who they really are outside of highlighted clips. It doesn’t ruin their videos as much, I’m only watching their videos because they are skilled at the game.

It was sadly ironic when Diamondbolt, who made a lot of videos about Transformers, turned out to be a massive Transphobe.

Edit: not exclusively Transformers, turns out

u/Dude_with_hat 2d ago

u/Jozxyqk_27 2d ago

Maybe they've improved since then, but when they went mask-off about 5 years ago, I called them out in the comments and they doubled down. This was just before a Transformers comic they were praising was about to introduce a canonically trans character, too. Might have been a fascinating meltdown by them.
