Is anybody else really scared for the day that Youtubers get too old to create silly content anymore. The day when Dan and Phil decide that they don’t want to be drawing cat whiskers on their faces at age 47 and act out chip and salsa fanfic. The day when Hannah decides she is too old to be getting drunk every week. When Grace realizes she can’t keep up with all the new trends. When Mamrie realized she doesn’t want to be know for making innuendos. The day when Shane can’t eat anymore terrible food because it’s starting to affect his health. I’m terrified for the day when youtubers start telling their viewers that this is their last video. I’m scared because I know it’s bound to happen. Although they will continue living and going through their own lives, it will be like losing a friend that I’ve spent years getting to know. I think of these youtubers as my friends, my crazy sisters, brothers, aunts, etc etc. and knowing that I will never get more videos of them will break my heart. They were the first generation of people on YouTube, when it was just an outlet for people to create whatever they wanted. And although there will continue to be new Youtubers, nobody will ever compare to this first group of people that legitimized the YouTube platform.
For the last few months I’ve hit a really low pit of depression, and I was just never able to express or tell anyone what was upsetting me shout out to my mental breakdowns at work tbh. I just kind of let it sit there. My only source of happiness was watching YouTube videos. Or more specifically, Holy Trinity videos and Dan and Phil videos.
I got these done as a constant reminder that their work has gotten me through so many bad days and that a good laugh and vibe is just a click away.
Also to be clear the martini glass is the chapter header thing from You Deserve a Drink. And by that I mean the book.
This Might Get Weird Y’All tonight in London was so HILARIOUS! Loved it so much! The jokes, the technical issues, the costumes and everything else was wonderful and so, so funny. I love that they invited Rose and Rosie and Ben and Mike from Sorted Food on stage! Here’s the YDAD segment from the show.
