When the Phandom effectively takes the fun out of Dan's new video.
Ugh. Most of you are young and so I guess I get it…but it’s just weird to me because he literally references the people that missed the joke in his video and all of you that are freaking out missed the joke. Dan gets flooded with “I love you” every day of his life and I’m sure he appreciates it…but his audience isn’t Jacksepticeye’s or Amazingphil’s or any other Youtuber’s. Dan’s whole angle is that he makes videos about being awkward and relatable and we laugh (Seriously. Read the description of his Youtube channel). I dunno. It’s early in the morning and all I see are posts about people low key apologizing for his memes…but I don’t get how you can be a fan of Dan’s and then miss the mark about what his audience is. It’s all about self-deprecating irony and interactive cheekiness. Hell, I’m not even a big fan if Dan’s and I know that much. So…I stand by what I said as a cynical adult that appreciates what his persona is…and if Dan Howell (the person, not his persona) was truly looking for wholesome posts and flower crowns, he could ask for it and obviously get it. As it stands, he has an audience even unique to that of Phil’s in that noone bats an eye when he says he’ll punch us in the face and that we’re gluttons for punishment. In return, while y'all want to #benicertoDan2k17 I’m saying he knows what he’s up to. #Danknowsthesafeword2017
