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 he’s very slightly Asian but his Asian stereotype character really is a bit much. But the comments are all “he is actually Asian so it’s 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.

Eaton did do them a favor though since they were out of warranty but I'm guessing bad press from LTT over this is probably not worth denying a replacement.

unsurprisingly mkbhd's video is getting a higher proportional number of dislikes than likes.. at least based on his previous 2 videos.

my first interaction with a bitwit video was that video making fun of the theverge computer build.

not only is that poo poo racist, it provides cover for racists. "that guy did an impression there so what's so bad about it?"

its not even a good gag or joke. it is basically "watch me talk in an accent for a whole video." there is no comedy to it. like why would you find it funny other than you think of othering people being perfectly fine.
