Hey kids remember when I went on that big ol rant about why video game parodies are dumb n' hack? This is like the sequel.

I can't remember who said it or how long ago, but I think I remember some popular NG/YT animators saying it's okay to do video game/tv parodies for the views as long as you focus on original content once you get that initial surge in fans. (The 100k rule, I believe it's called.) Well whoever said that I'm sure was a liar and a hypocrite, because I haven't seen anyone follow through on that one.

And it really isn't their fault – it's tough to start from the bottom and work your way up without the aid of those guaranteed-to-be-viral pokemon/skyrim/minecraft videos. But what you have to remember is that if you're building your fanbase off of video game jokes, people subscribed to you for the video game jokes, not your original content. I think some people probably did get to 100,000 subs and tried to "switch," only to find zero people watching their cartoons once they dropped the parodies.

Here's the thing that really pisses me off though – even the hackiest dumbest pandering-est parody cartoons are promoted by all the other established animators. Are we seriously reinforcing the popularity of these dumb trends? You know you don't HAVE to share a shitty cartoon with everyone 'cause your "friend" made it. We gotta quit jerkin' eachother off and telling eachother it's okay to make all this hack shit. In fact, I'm gonna be the first to say DON'T watch any of these cartoons. I haven't seen most of 'em, but I have decided to judge them solely on the fact that they are parodies.

And is this unfair of me? Totally. But I think if we want better quality content, we have to stop promoting videos that are designed to be popular. Or in this case, anti-promote. Don't watch parodies it hurts the internet.

Thanks!
