This is because people without a creative bone in their bodies have determined that having a YouTube channel is their job and their future. Since they can’t create anything themselves they have glommed on to this weird niche of thinking they can monetize their channel by generating a big following by showing their reactions to other peoples creative content. So they steal the original content then video themselves reacting to it? It’s sort of a scam. Stevie Terreberry does the same thing on his channel where he steals someone else’s video then he proceeds to make fun of the people it in a smarmy way that he thinks is humor. He is a big thief of other peoples creative content. This is totally because Terreberry doesn’t have a single creative thought or idea, yet he is making over $100g’s a month as a guitar something. It’s a bit disgusting, I think? Some gamer kids are making millions by live streaming themselves playing online video games and getting millions of followers who just watch them play video games. Just like everything else with social media the real artists get a back seat to the loudest self promoters. Just as weird as the reaction videos are the guitar shredder videos such as someone like Mimisounds on Instagram. She gets thousands more views playing over a record than views of the actual record got. I wonder why? More power to her, but does she really deserve to become a star in this manner? Now, I have nothing against Mimisounds and other women like her and more power to them, I just think it’s absurd they have a career as a guitarist videoing themselves playing over a record. Shouldn’t that be called “practice” instead?
