The Right Opinion: The State of fouseyTUBE - The Truth Behind It All | TRO
Go back a couple years, and US-firstr, Colossal is Crazy, you know, the one you lot won’t stop comparing me to, released his long overdue video on FouseyTUBE, named, an alternate reality. I was just initiating my interest into commentary, I’d had a US-first channel for about six months, but I’d been stuck in a bit of a rut and the videos I made were very niche.
People had messaged me from time to time, saying, “Oh my God, you sound like Colossal Is Crazy”, and although I didn’t particularly hear the resemblance, I guess anyone with a remotely posh accent sounds like the clown to you lot who don’t live in the UK. Alright you American knobs, I get that your have freeways have gaps in between them the size of Buckingham Palace but we’re not all that local.
Anyhow, before I get carried away on that unique tangeant, the point is. I literally knew no-one, and I got ushered into his Discord server and presented to his content, and I’m not gonna lie, it was quite the encounter.
I had never heard of Fousey, so this video was my introduction, and it was a pretty comprehensive deconstruction of what Fousey stood for. What I admired about it, was that it managed to make a greater narrative on FouseyTUBE as a person from mere surface value content, which is what I have always wanted to do with my channel.
One of the responses that I loathe most when criticising people is the line “You don’t know them, how can you criticise their intentions”, Fousey is a perfect example of how someone can not explicitly commit any wrongdoings on surface value, yet have the most corrupted ideas of what he wants to gain from this content, and the people watching it.
This is generally what I took away from Colossal’s video, although the sample videos were limited, he did a great job creating an elaborate character portrait, and really I didn’t feel the necessity to cover it any more than I did back in the day. I did a video criticising his motivation to push a political agenda through his content, and then his decision to copyright strike Colossal for content that was clearly fair use. My interaction with his content has been minimal.
And honestly, after he’d gone on a pretty prolonged hiatus I thought I’d never deal with him again, I mean, what more is there to know about him. Admittedly, I wasn’t that interested, I assumed he was just a dodgy person in a powerful position, but oh my, looks like I’ve got some revisiting to do.
Because recently he has just been flying off the rails, into something rather worrying, something that not even the extensive lengths of Colossal’s video covered, a strange insanity that I felt the need to investigate, and perhaps explain.
He hosted something that was branded as “FouseyCon”, and he went on a massive tirade, with some truly weird comments, and has started releasing music, which, once again, he’s more than at liberty to. However, regarding this convention, he made lots of wild claims, one of which including the assertions that Drake was going to be performing, which, apparently wasn’t quite the case.
Well, wasn’t the case at all.
There is a tonne of footage of him behaving extremely erratically and impulsively, and it’s very easy for commentators to look at him right now, and try and explain what’s going on in the moment, because it is, it’s bizarre.
There are claims about his mental health, the profession that he’s not on medication, bipolar, depression, mania. And it’s very possible, but there are other people with more of an insight into that currently, so I’d just urge you to go and check out those videos, because I am many things, but I’m not quite rolling with the big boys of US-first yet. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time though lads.
Me and daddy Keem, united.
Anyhow, before I lose myself in sweet daydreams of a better time, I need to discuss the man in question FouseyTUBE. Now, Colossal’s still working on part two of his video, so I want to avoid stepping on his toes, but I don’t want to be a surface level analysis.
