Why Do YouTube Fan Jocks All Sound the Same?

My God, these guys are trying so hard to be funny and yet they're completely not. Their acting style also bears a striking resemblance to the 2 Man Advantage, although 2MA is... what are the words I'm looking for... oh yeah, hilarious and creative. Someone please explain to me why most YouTube jocks sound like these guys. You know, it's the "Hey! We're energetic, snarky and totally like you! We can do stuff that's totally off the cuff ! Just watch, we might do something crazy like play basketball in a field while riding lawnmowers!" shtick over and over again. To add to it, these guys don't even do anything to distinguish themselves from everyone else. They don't look different. They don't sound different. There's nothing that makes them unique and in internet marketing, you have got to differentiate.

I don't get what the appeal is. They're sponsored by Champion so they have some exposure and are completely bending over backwards for them. The premise of the show is to, you know, show and talk about other people's clips. Not even their own. Is that it? Man. This shit is legendary. Absolutely legendary. Kiege Ramsey is probably sitting in front of a computer somewhere completely ashamed.

I'd also like to add that this is precisely the reason that I don't do videos/podcasts. It sounds like a good idea, but I have a strange feeling they would all end up something like this. Call it the curse of the jock, if you will.

OK, that's two days in a row that I playa hated on someone. I'm done with the rants for a bit. Deep breaths... Deep breaths.


  1. Maybe JR should come and take over for a bit so you can get your breath back?

  2. @ loser domi: JR usually takes his breath away, so I'm not sure if that would work too well.
