This is a fascinating insight into the human mind (ffo: Alan Partridge, Watsky)


#1

Soooo a guy whose video I uploaded ages ago for the purpose of bantering @xylo seems to have gotten himself into $147,000 of debt trying to make it in “the rap game”. He’s put up nine videos documenting his quest to try and get famous and…it hasn’t gone well. One of the weirdest things I’ve ever seen.

Highlight is selling his car and borrowing $1,000 from his mom (mother) to pay for props and video production for his latest video, and buying TVs on a credit card to sell them for cash.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZSt-pxTz50 is a good primer.


#2

Why were you uploading his video though?


#3

It was after xylo had posted about watsky. Just yer general low level bants


#4

Oh you mean posted on here. Come on grandad learn the lingo of the world wide Web.


#5

He has a video called How to ‘Quit Drinking On your Own’ in which he introduces himself as a motivational rapper/motivational speaker


#6

wonder what drives people to this kind of thing? A desperate void in his life he’s trying to fill maybe? Sounds like the guy is pretty unwell


#7

Yeah that’s his gimmick. He did one of those shit inspirational vids that gets millions of views on Facebook


#8

weird man.

this popped up in recommended from that. youtube is a ridiculous place.

great song name tbf


#9

At a glance he seems like a product of this ‘vlogger’, ‘YouTube famous’ culture, a platform that seems to lend itself nicely to these types of pathological oversharers.


#10

It’s funny how these kinds of chronically malfunctioning human beings are drawn to life coaching, motivational speaking etc. I had a boss who quit her job to go on an NLP course and is as far as I know dishing out advice to people for money on how they can achieve their full potential and overcome their ‘limiting beliefs’. She was, and most likely still, is one of the most obnoxious, selfish and terrifyingly insane people I’ve ever met.


#11

So true.


#12

YEP. I know an NLP practitioner who has achieved the square root of fuck all in life but talk one course and now is a self styled ‘PT and psychiatrist.’

The friend of mine who got sucked in by this div was contemplating 2k a month for the privilege of being mentored :expressionless:


#13

Oh at the end of the videos (which are over a four month period) he’s over $200000 in debt and he also sold a tv so he could get a haircut for a video he produced


#14

#15

He’s up to 21,000 monthly Spotify listeners now. Getting there.

Here’s his latest banger where he apologises to Fantano for calling him a needle dick:

The same sort of people often go into local politics.
