The Leroy Williamson ChantNerdfighteria
Okay guys, here’s literally the best I can do with my computer. Sadly not all of the submissions were used in this version; anybody who submitted themselves singing with an instrument or only submitted an instrumental track are not in this mix. For one simple reason, differing guitar strumming patterns/ways of playing the song. But I still leave open the possibility of having a version with instruments in the future.
Will hankgames be affected by Nintendo's recent announcement claiming ad revenue generated by fanvids on youtube?
Probably, but I’m going to level with you:
Hankgames is not a significant source of revenue for the vlogbrothers. I wish it was, believe me. I want the Swindon Town Swoodilypoopers to be a wildly lucrative enterprise, and perhaps some day they will be. But for now….yeah. No. So we’ll probably keep playing whatever games we want to and uploading them to YouTube.
Nonetheless, Nintendo’s announcement (and YouTube’s acquiescence) is a disaster. It hurts Nintendo, and it hurts the independent creators who through their Let’s Play videos create a unique and valuable experience of a game. The idea that the Swindon Town Swoodilypoopers belong to EA Sports is just ridiculous. It’s my game, played my way, for your benefit. EA is lucky to have the free advertising (and unlike Nintendo, they seem to recognize the value).
Off-topic, but my dearest dream is for the Swindon Town Swoodilypoopers to become so financially successful that they fund the purchase of the ACTUAL SWINDON TOWN FOOTBALL CLUB. This is about 10 million dollars away from happening. But someday, friends. Some bright day…
