This is me watching illuminaughtii. I found her content like last month, thought her stuff was really cool and then like a week later boom she's terrible.

u/EllieBasebellie 4d ago

Also it’s atrociously researched

u/ten_dead_dogs 4d 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?"

171

u/GigaSnaight 3d 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.

Yes, she posted someone's suicide note while trying to paint him as a lazy freeloader. She also falsely accused someone else as being complicit to grooming and used an alt accpunt for a smearcampaign because he said the r-slur in some stream a long time ago.

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...)

Ohm did a lot of shit-slinging towards the rest of the VanossCrew. Don't exactly remember the exact details, but he went on quite a few unhinged rants about the other members and complained about how he "wasn't in the main circle."

Also it came out that his public gf for a couple years was a minor when they started dating. He went radio silent after so many people came out with proof and afaik he just disappeared in 2019.

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.

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 4d 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/WeaselSlayer 4d 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 4d 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.

A semi popular Youtuber for an MMO I play, recently completely rebranded his channel to go full on alt right cult mode. No warning, no nothing. People thought it was an early April Fools at first, but nope.
Coming from giving video game advice, his new goal includes gems like:
"raising up the next generation of Godly men as leaders of the world"

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.

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.

46

u/Literal-Chaos 4d 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.

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.
