A recent backlash from “angry comedian” Igor Hiller of YouTube channel The Kids Table Comedy has exposed vloggers’ most insidious view-catching tricks. From numerous cuts, endless collaborations, titles that click, and low-end production value, this man has had it with vloggers.
His most recent video, published today, mocks the (white) male vlogger special of…wait for it…approaching women wearing bikinis on Venice Beach and asking for their phone numbers/a kiss.
Well-known YouTube personality Vitaly, for instance, has created these video numerous times with almost invariable success. Take the following video, entitled “How To Get Girls To Kiss You,” in which he harasses women (wearing bikinis, of course) for the viewing pleasure of well over 40 million people watching on YouTube.
Hiller’s anti-vlog campaign also extends to list format that vloggers are known to employ. His example, “5 Annoying Things Parents Do,” a title ripped straight from a vlogger’s YouTube channel, takes into account a perhaps more sinister reality than those most tween-targeting vloggers do.
The Kids Table Comedy joined YouTube in 2012 and also features comedians Marvin Lemus and Emily Krakowsky. They currently have over 10,900 subscribers.
