    Everyone keeps bringing that up, but I don't see why that matters or changes anything, personally. I don't think anybody believes that a light-bulb suddenly turned on in everyone's heads and this generation became possessed by pure evil or something. Circumstances have changed to allow sh*theads to be even bigger sh*theads given resources to create even more complexes. The disdain for it still should be proportional to that, IMO.

    This was not jumping over the fence to an outdoor public pool, the idiots in the video were in a closed building. On top of the that they took a zamboni out for a drive and possibly broke it with the way the backed it onto the ice.

    I agree that people react to shock in different ways. Some just freeze, some with nervous laughter etc. But like is mentioned above, to actually decide to edit it and later upload it tells me something is seriously wrong with this guy.

    Thought it would be the other brother who would mess up bigtime first though

    Honestly, my general repulsion to Youtube has less to do with Youtubers ACTUALLY doing anything morally reprehensible, like Logan Paul, and more to do with the general annoying/obnoxious speaking/ADD-video-editing/content delivery style that Youtubers like Phillip DeFranco have. It just gives me a gag reflex for some reason.

    It's a phony style of delivery that's not as refined as say, talk-show hosts. It seems incredibly fake and obnoxious. It's too obvious a camera is present.

    It's kind of like.... the millennial-ized equivalent of phony radio host shock jocks combined with news-anchor-speak..... only high on caffeine/speed.... over-enunciating/emphasizing every other word/expression, and getting up on soap-boxes about serious subjects...... while trying to sound down to earth, relateable, and cool. I think the jump-cut edits after every sentence is probably the worst thing about it.

    For some reason EVERY popular Youtuber seems to do it this way.

    It's not that it is flashy, it's just that it is poor editing and poor delivery.

    They are cutting him out of the top tiered ad program, not cutting him out all together. They are basically doing exactly what they did to Pewdiepie. Rip into his ad revenue and get rid of the exclusive series.

    I gotta be perfectly honest, I like PewDiePie now. I don't wait with baited breath for a new video every day, but he has some interesting takes, and obviously has a very unique perspective on anything YouTube related.



    A lot of media still won't have that conversation. They're looking at social media stars as just another entertainment resource like movie or television and they are not that at all. They aren't selling the same product. The Paul brothers and a lot of social media stars are selling their "life" as a brand. They're basically performing 24/7 (which reminds of Bo Burnham's 'Make Happy' on Netflix; go watch it).

    Was this not sarcasm?
    I sure hope it was sarcasm.
    I'm not sure if it was sarcasm.
    It doesn't sound like sarcasm.
    Sometimes sarcasm is hard to judge in text?
    God I hope this is sarcasm.

    What conversation?

    I am not going to watch a PDP video to find out what this conversation is, either.

    The conversation about what YouTube stars are and how their brand is cultivated.

    I would recommend watching it, even if it is just to **** on what he says. I would have had the exact same response to watching a PewDiePie video two years ago.

    It’s crazy and remarkable to think about. Logan and Jake Paul record their every day lives, edit it and upload it every day and get more views than a lot of TV shows that air once a week. Let that sink in.

    It really shouldn't be surprising, though.

    Consider that TV shows air only on a certain network that's usually only available in a country or two and only with a fairly expensive paid service that isn't linked to any other life necessities, and is only view-able in a very short window of time (one out of every 168 hours). Consider that the only way it gets viewed in addition to this is if either someone happened to be not only watching TV at that time but also channel flipping to the exact moment that it becomes interesting, or if they somehow became aware that it would be on and cared enough to anticipate and make room in their day for it.

    It would be extremely unlikely that a more popular platform that has none of these limitations were not able to match those numbers, one way or another.
