10-25-10: Initial release.
Hey guys, so here is a quick update as to what I have been doing recently. About two weeks ago I was talking to a new friend on Skype from the Netherlands that is a follower of GameDexterity. Actually, he was even a follower of my old Youtube account VersatileNinja before I discontinued it.
Anyway, during our Skype conversations we were sharing stories of what it felt like to be uploading videos to Youtube, and somehow we came across the discussion of cringing whenever we see a “dumb” comment posted on a video.
After talking about it for quite a bit, we thought how funny and fun it would be to create a show where we look at comments from our videos and tear them apart?
It sounds like a ridiculous idea, but I created a teaser intro. No one knew what the show was going to be about. The next day I released episode one, and from what I can tell, everyone loved it! I have gotten so many messages telling me they were laughing their ass off and they can’t wait for the second episode.
This last weekend we released the second episode, and we got another great turnout. One person had asked if we would consider tearing apart other comments that we see from other people’s youtube videos, and I said I would think about it.
Now last night I thought about it further and decided it was a great idea! In fact, I loved it so much that I created this new google docs form where people can submit comments they found on Youtube in hopes of us reviewing it in a future episode. I think if enough viewers catch on, I might be able to start up a “Claim Your Comment” movement? I was even toying about the idea of creating a video that people can host on their own channels to educate others about the “Claim Your Comment” philosophy.
Man, I am drooling just thinking about it!
