Hey /g/, how do I become an "e-celeb"?
He acts retarded in his videos but we must remember, as grown men, we're not the ones he caters to. My 11 year old brother loves him.
Swedish culture is God tier you look beyond the mainstream.
>Non-mainstream swedish culture
So what's that considering how badly you've been overrun by immigrants from the middle east? Surströmming? Folkmusik? Folköl (beer that tastes like and has about the same alcohol content as dish water)? Wallander?
Haven't seen the movies, but the girl with the dragon tattoo books were at least decent in the original language when I read them before they started making the movies.
If us Finns have anything to say it that, it's not going to happen as they have to come trough us first due to certain geological reasons. Interestingly Swedish thinking on defense has basically been that if the Russians attack, the Finns will hold the ground forces and they'll just have to contend with air defense, which is why their army has a disproportionately big air force.
However they've pretty much left that to rot and taken money away from having a working air defense and put into immigrant services and social programs. The Russians were able to penetrate Swedish air space unchallenged with bombers as part of an exercise not too long ago because the Swedish air force didn't have people on call due to it being on easter sunday.
We? I am British. PDP lives in Brighton.
Anyway, Swedes produce some of the most interesting music out there, and I'm not talking about folk. I think they're the 2nd biggest music exporters in Europe (after Britain) and their alternative scene is just GOAT, with The Knife being the prime example and probably the most famous non-mainstream export. I'm also assuming you've never seen Lukas Moodysson's films? The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo films were pretty good too, Americans had to ruin the series with their shitty remakes. I like Swedish culture and I'm not too sure what to the immigrants have to do with it. Also, they're not more overrun than us, or the Netherlands or any other western European country. They just seem to be far more... optimistic (?) about the issue.
Now I see the amount of mistakes I've made, sorry I'm really tired.
I've been a YouTube for a long time and really the only way too be a successful YouTuber is to have started back in 2006 where your views and likes acutely meant something. These stats would have grown into a really large channel. Its nearly impossible to compete now seeing as there are thousands of channels in any field which probably have tens of thousands of minutes of watch time a day while even a small channel with thousands of subs wouldn't even get a 1000th of that. Its almost statistically impossible to grow into a larger channel sort of having outside help, a vital video, or being a world champion at some thing.
There is merit to this. I had an infrequently used YouTube channel with a few dozen Vids all at like 30 view max, of that.
I had one video with like 150k views, it was a ten second "review" of a McDonalds toy where I basically was screaming like a retard.
>all the shitty metal
can confirm Swedcucks just can't hold a candle to based Finnish glory
It's the best thing I've ever heard in my life, definitely my all time favourite. But then again it's a very political album so your personal views greatly impact the way you perceive it. I agree with their philosophy and they way they've conveyed it on STH is flawless. The only politically engaged record with a clear and strong message I can listen to, without cringing.
He makes obnoxious videos, but apparently he's an alright guy. We're not the target audience, and most children's TV is equally obnoxious. Apparently people who have met him say he's nice and not retarded in real life.
I don't know, though, since I've never met him. This is second-hand knowledge.
I've wondered why retarded e-celebrities shout a lot and I think they are either imitating Will Farrel or maybe shouting just exerts ones dominance over the audience.
Nostalgia Critic also employs this technique too, I think he's the earliest to do so, there it is, shouting is the key to raking in big Youtube viewing numbers.
How did you manage to get one million? I'm very curious about that, did you cash in?
entombed, dismember and edge of sanity are pretty fucking good, and I'm not even a metalhead.
children of bodom on the other hand are babby's first metal band and suck bad.
I honestly hate the video cause the mic is so loud and I sound like an obnoxious retard. I just made it when I was pissed that everyone that kept winning the Battlefield video competition was just posting videos that had multiple videos in their video and nothing special even happening in them. So I just kind of went full autism retard mode.
I didnt even place in the competition and ea didnt support me in anyway. Instead like 200k views in, they threw a claim on my video effectively stealing all of the money until it had like 500k views where I got partnered and I finally got them to respond to like the 70th email I sent to their copyright department. They denied putting the claims on all like 40 of my battlefield videos but then the claims mysteriously disappeared and they covered it up.
Here's the video. But like I said out of the like 1050 videos I have, I think this is near one of the worst ones.
It might also help that back in like 2007 I was the biggest Battlefield channel and had like 1.4million views back then on my channel. If you googled battlefield youtube or anything similar I was the channel that came up, usually for my sniper training videos. This psycho ex of mine deleted my videos when I was at work and I lost my SEO placing though. I just post on it now mostly for my friends. I've uploaded some 900 videos in the last 3 years and now my channel has about 2.8 million views. I pretty much post every day or multiple videos at the end of the week. I posted 11 videos today.
This video is my most developed video. Took like some 3,000 hours of gameplay to make it.
If your curious about statistics or anything, I can help you out.
I think that maybe because of all of the fake media being show to younger kids that they think that terrible acting and all that is actually how people are emotionally and they see it as authetic emotion. Anyone who was born prior to the late 90s seems to obviously see this fakeness and is disgusted by it.
Cater to retards. It also helps to be extroverted and to have an obnoxious personality. Look at the top YouTube people for examples.
It's seriously the same thing as any other form of media. TV shows, pop music, summer blockbusters, whatever. If you cater to the lowest common denominator, you get big.
>join a community
>suck loadsa dick (mods included)
>gain a following
>start youtube channel
Bam, now you have viewers. Just keep sucking that e-cock, and your viewer count will grow.
If you're charismatic and great at manipulating people, you'll gain a small following in no time.
yeah. Then the people who are fucking awful at the games give out terrible fucking information and then people come to your videos and downvote them and call you a fucking retard because so and so famous youtuber said this but that youtuber is fucking awful at the game and they have no fucking idea what they are talking about.
For example I remember a youtuber made a video about a sniper rifle being the best cqb rifle in the game but its damage falls off around like 40 feet where it can 1 shot anyone. I told people it was a terrible rife because most engagements are between 0-150 and to use this other rifle which did 1 shot kills out to 120m and had 2x the ammo in a magazine, shot about 15% faster between shots, reloaded faster, punched through armor to be able to 2 shot, had a faster tactical reload, had like 4x less bullet drop, and a few more things that I cant remember. The amount of fucking bitching defending their shitlord god who doesnt even have a 1ktd with the weapon was insane. And the community gets worse and puts down legit good youtubers and everyone fucking sucks dick on your team because they listen to the fucking retards.
The legiontards are so fucking devoted you can show them actual side-by-side video proof that their famous youtuber is fucking wrong and they will still cuss at you and downvote your shit.
You missed those. Have a consistent schedule OP. Nothing viewers hate more than random videos every now and again. Think about push notifications for addictive apps, keep people coming back
become /g/'s tech youtuber, make videos on how to rice linux, review/look at weird/old tech, give your honest unfiltered opinions on things, videos on programming, tech news that isn't pointless to talk about, weird PC builds, modding
Be competent enough to record or stream footage and be remotely likeable. I got 200 people in my first ever stream and I didn't even talk, I just chatted with people in the stream chat and gave the people what they wanted to see.
It depends on your market, how much you need to interact.
I'd be interested in doing that, but I feel I don't have enough experience with a variety of technology on a deep enough level. I know how to build a computer and can tell you why you should get one component over another, but I couldn't tell you the specifics of how all of the components actually worked.
>give your honest unfiltered opinions on things
When you do that, you will just get downvoted to oblivion. The only opinion that matters is the majority opinion. Going against it will just get you 10,000 angry fat nerd comments.
> Do a channel
> Ricing with Ching Wong
> Start out talking bout base specs
> Poor a bag of rice into the machine.
> Naow it raiced upu, run bettah
You don't even have to BE Asian to do this. In fact, it would be better if you were not since Youtubers love retardation.
Felix's story is actually pretty unusual, which is part of the reason he got so big. If you're an english speaker playing games on the Internet in Sweden (which YouTube did not consider an English speaking country), then you get two demographics; english speakers anywhere in europe, and also swedes who may or may not be browsing YouTube in english.
Then he moved to Spain, gathered new demographics, and spanish speakers around the world started to see a lot more of him. By this time he had a decent foothold getting American subs as well, and then moving to the UK just cemented his position as a global YouTube powerhouse.
If Felix wasn't a Swede, and just put out the some videos but coming from Texas, you might not have ever heard of him.
Well, in Austria I enjoy universal healthcare, paid holidays, affordable universities (a couple hundred Euro per year), extremely low crime, welfare if in need, high social mobility and the list can go on. All you have in America are big cardboard houses and shitty cinema.
The only countries I can imagine myself living in are Switzerland and Germany maybe. Outside of Europe only Canada and Australia. The US is shit, and Americans are delusional as fuck, believing the wild, unfair capitalism they live in is the definition of 1st world. It's fun being rich in the US, but that's about it. Lower and middle classes have it better in Europe.
But beating the shit out of him at the grocery store while your little bro was with you would make it so much better, and you'd be looked up to by him. You could just smash a glass bottle of lingonberry juice or whatever you guys drink over pewdipie's head and your brother would think that's the coolest shit ever, and all his friends would be jealous.
Also, if OP would beat up pewdiepie, he'd become internet famous like he wants.
E-celebs don't exist, it's just a buzzword that means "YouTube channel I don't like."
People can no longer think without using memes, catchphrases and buzzwords. They can't just say "this guy is shit and I don't like him," and have to come up with some babble about "e-celebs."
Except when those people do literally anything other than YouTube videos. Then, suddenly, they are not "e-celebs."
The only thing worse than a buzzword is a person who tries to rationalize a buzzword.
Stop being dumb. That's like saying well if Johnny Depp wasnt an actor he wouldn't be a celebrity. If Michael Jordan couldn't play basketball, he wouldn't be a celebrity.
WELL NO FUCKING SHIT
E-celeb isn't meaningless. Its for "celebrities" who are internet famous and everyone will forget aboit completely within 2 years.
And I don't even mean forget about to the level of read D and E list celebs where they still get walk ins on Law and Order or sometimes a tabloid article about how they turned into a depressed alcoholic, I mean "Who the fuck is that" forget about.
Frustratingly my house mate spends all his time watching this shit and has started talking about starting his own Youtube channel.
I wouldn't mind so much but he has now started screaming like a retard whenever he plays any kind of computer game. I can't tell if he is practicing for his channel or genuinely thinks that is how you're supposed to react to dying in a computer game.
I seem to do well as a channel when I do guides for things that don't exist. Those videos of mine have the highest watch time length. Also people seem to get pissedoff if you pay to many videos.
I've seen him interviewed where he talks about his personality. A lot of his craziness is genuine, albeit forced a little bit to up entertainment value. However, in real life, he seems to be a pretty chill guy, slightly shy even.
The reason the US doesn't look 1st world is because we have a 3rd world population with 3rd world habits. Save for a few states, we're more like Brazil than northwest Europe. And we have welfare here too, it's just that the people on it are uncivilized and socially unadjusted which is why people on it appear to have nothing and is the reason Detroit looks the way it does.
