Why Mark and Jack Are Important.
Warning, a bit of a rant here.
I think Markiplier and Jacksepticeye have become my favourite youtubers. But it’s not because of the comedy, though they do, in my opinion, make funny videos. See, I’ve been seeing a lot of people around my Facebook and Tumblr feed saying “I don’t find Mark or Jack funny/attractive/worth watching.” and “I don’t understand how they can have so many viewers!” While it’s fine and dandy to have your differing opinions and tastes, I just want you to know, that’s not the whole reason to their fanbases. They differ from other youtubers because they try their dead hardest to be genuine and if not genuine, they try to be as positive as they can. I want to share with you some things said by Jack and Mark.
“Thank you for deciding my channel was worth your time.” - Mark (x)
“It just emphasizes how much I need to try… to ensure that we as a community do more for each other.” - Mark (x)
“Belief in yourself is all it takes to start snowballing down this incredible plateau of something that you can create out of nothing.” - Mark (x)
“I want this to be a community and that’s really what I feel like it is.” - Jack (x)
“It’s really nice to put faces behind the subscribers because I keep promoting individuality and how I respect you all…” - Jack (x)
“You’re never alone, as hard as life seems sometimes, as alone as you may ever feel, you are not. There are always people who love you.” - Jack (x)
This only just scratches the surface of them and their impact on people and community as a whole. They are doing all they can to help everyone they can, and I really really hope that even if you don’t find their humor funny, you can at least respect that. Thank you.
