We make videos about the creator economy, and the lessons we’ve learned over 10 years of being on YouTube. We also interview creators and try to get to the bottom of what’s working on YouTube and where the creator economy is headed.
Lmfao, the overarching response of “he didn’t contribute to content creation, him leaving wasn’t gonna derail things it was the ramification of his actions we struggled with 😂🤣”
he is really correct about going back to relisten to their podcast about the event multiple times. I listened to that episode at least 5 times. 💀
I never want the try guys to end selfishly
zach is so wellspoken
one day I will be there at your interview Colin and Samir 15.09.2023
Off topic but does anyone know what jacket Zach is wearing??
The background music in the intro is mad good. 🤌
Ugh yes, Zach talking about how putting people in a role where they're stimulated is so good to hear! As a ND person so often we're just seen as not being good at a certain thing in a role and then get fired, instead of the employer seeing our potential for areas where we could thrive. We need more Zach's who see value!
All these guys a goofs
OsvyA7O9hiY&t=1h24m53s 1:24:53 me as a female being obsessed with the robot skeleton video heh
I miss Alex sometimes, but never Ned, who never did it for me.
I watched the SNL skit the very first time it aired on tv & my mouth dropped open. It was very much in poor taste.
i watched to the end................................................................................
I had never heard of the Try Guys before the controversy. Now I’m subscribed and have spent hours watching old videos. Same with You Can Sit with Us ❤
Eugene genuinely doesn't seem to ever want to hang around Zach and Keith. It's just two white guys full of themselves talking about themselves. It's all been seen and done before. I give them another year.
I genuinely love and appreciate how long these videos are.
Considering we are the generation of Choose Your Own Adventure books, a live choose your own adventure seems like an upgrade to that nostalgia factor those books have now as an adult. Even if it is a completely different theme it is the same concept. Markilpier has the video algorithm down if you want to explore that on the YouTube platform. Lots of video shooting and clothing changes, but your whole audience gets to experience it, not just those paying for tickets.
I miss the era where there was nothing scandalous about them. That sadly includes Ned, and it’s annoying that I can’t change that fact.
I just grew up with them and was there when they first started (before 100k subscribers) so it’s so sad to see how they’ve flatten out now that the channel will never scrub away the stain Ned left.
Literally just got off the elliptical as this video ended haha no fucking way
