Since I’m an Internet content creator, I occasionally patronize other creators’ content to see what the general public finds interesting. I decided to watch some YouTubers who were at Vidcon this year, only to be slapped in the face with pure prepubescent cringe. I could not believe the amount of autism that was prevalent & championed at this convention. Moreover, the attention whoredom was so immense, it reminded me of the life losers who attention whore on True Capitalist Radio.
Below is a clip of the YouTube streamer Ice Poseidon (whose a creepy Autist himself) at Vidcon. Notice the amount of young children at this event and the lengths they’ll go to get ANY kind of attention. On a side note, I’m prognosticating that Ice Poseidon will be the next YouTuber mixed up in some underage scandal, for how he and some of his party were interacting with these kids at Vidcon was very disturbing and inappropriate.
As you can see, Vidcon is an attention whore convention for children. Where were the parents of these kids? They were seen at the hotel bars located within the vicinity of the convention, while their children act like complete idiots and document it all for posterity. Not knowing that one day, they will have to go out into the real world and EARN a living while these videos will forever document their stupidity for all potential employers to see.
The disturbing trend on the Internet is ATTENTION of ANY kind; no matter positive or negative. It’s obvious that the youth of today are longing for attention which they’re not getting at home, so the Internet provides a false sense of social achievement. The problem is that a “subscriber” or a “like” is nothing but a mere click. It’s not a genuine signal of one’s appreciation or a validation of social conquest; its just a freaking click! Vidcon demonstrates where our entertainment fetished society is headed, unless some of us shine the spotlight on this mass Munchausen syndrome.
I would also like to add that YouTuber adults were intermixed with these kid at Vidcon. Lest we forget that YouTubers have become notorious for using the platform to solicit inappropriate sexual advances towards their underage fanbase. So factor that in with all these kid who will do ANYTHING for attention; get it now?
