I was under the impression that the NONAME VPN company was made up for the joke.

it could all be just an elaborate joke but it seems like there really was a VPN provider willing to sponsor his ad at the end except they wanted changes and he said no.

one of the very last things he says was, "that was a lot of money" real sad like.

Agreed. I guess hes very slightly Asian but his Asian stereotype character really is a bit much. But the comments are all he is actually Asian so its alright

i had never seen this guys channel until that whole thing with building a pc from theverge... i hesitated a bit because i thought it just had to be an elaborate deconstruction of a racist joke.... but no the joke is he exploits his ethnicity to let racist laugh at him for views.... for a tech channel.

I can only see a video from 3 days ago saying Kevin from tech showdown was in a medically induced coma. Looks like he passed away.

well why not posted:

You know what you tuber I cant stand? Bitwit/Awesomesauce/Kyle. Hea easily got the least tech knowledge of the crowd, lacks video skills and does those painful skits. At least Paul doesnt try to be entertaining and jayztwocents is incredibly skilled at builds. Kyle just has vlogs with his wife and terrible characters. I dont get the appeal.
I saw a video of his once when he was wearing a t-shirt with 'Taxation is Theft' on it, and I think that pretty much says it all

I doubt hes actually smart enough to have an ideology so its probably a reference to some vidya. That or hes a libterian and his wifes speaking voice is beginning to make sense

The one thing that irrationally annoys me about LTT videos, is he constantly reaches for his pocket and presses something. I'm assuming he is muting a call on his phone which begs the question why the gently caress he would keep his phone on him when shooting a video and just constantly mute it, and not just leave it somewhere.

Ever since I noticed it I can't un-see it.

Jesus uses a printout of the script, not a teleprompter. It's on the desk, in plain view. Sometimes he fights his cat for possession of it.

This seems like a solved problem: Either get one of the thousand minions to forward it for him or get an auto-scroller with high degree of speed granularity?

Am I the only one that hates Scrapyard Wars? It's just a bunch of endless awkward interactions, scrolling through their phones and laptops, and trawling for budget rear end poo poo in a very dry manner.
