Scanning through some of my old videos, I try to figure out what I can do next. What’s gonna go viral. My motivation changes from art to money to art to money. Mostly money though. You know me ha. The conservative-fake-laughing-degrading-women Capitalist. I’ll watch some of my old stuff though and think, “Wow, this is unbelievably boring.” and then I’ll want to delete it or at least unlist it so it doesn’t hurt the chain of videos for all the new comers. Does that make sense? I’d unlist all the shitty videos, leaving the ‘cream of the crop’ so that the chain is stronger and keeps new comers watching all the old videos because they’d all be ‘good’ ones. That’s an example of a Money decision; a business decision. If I left them the way they are now, it would be an Art decision. Like Oh, his shitty videos are still interesting to watch because it shows his flaws and him learning his craft blah blah. I think too much I know. Some of examples of shitty videos: Push n Pull prank, no-not-you-ing 2, we’re so fly…
Some of these comments are pretty forward. Unfortunately, the nastiest ones are the most interesting, like this recent one under Paying For Groceries: lol. We actually filmed on 2 other nights at that same Maceys, spending (with Gungho’s money) about 1-2k each night paying for people’s groceries. We did it the same way, having the cashier congratulate them and just say they’re the ‘Free Groceries Customer of the Day’, but for some reason no one was getting excited. We needed excitement for the video to be entertaining, the same way parents get a kick out of their kids jumping up and down on christmas. That’s all the video was trying to capture. Finally, on the third night of filming, for some crazy reason, all three ‘prospects’ got emotional and we had our video. Same with Tipping Servers. I (with Stuart filming) actually tipped 5 or 6 other servers $200 over two nights. The servers would just come and look at it with a blank expression and go back to whatever they were doing. We were stunned. So that video actually cost around $1200 to make.
I don’t get that much hate though. A lot of people I really admire get a lot of hate. Miley Cyrus for one. I’m sorry, I like her songs. My friends do too. We’re all very heterosexual guys that like to jam out to even “adore you” on the way to Texas Roadhouse.
