I sense there will be a major video at the end of the week, so this recap will only cover Monday and Wednesday’s videos.
Monday’s video, on April 20th 2015, talks about the joys of smoking weed everyday Oh, I wish, then he might actually be funny. No, instead it’s Bores filming a Loot Crate unboxing.
It’s astonishing how Bores spent years pushing away all the popular YouTube trends, yet here he is doing them. Let’s Plays, Loot Crate unboxings, I wouldn’t be surprised if GotGame sends him a Special Edition of a game and he does an unboxing video of that. … Oh damn it, I hope I just didn’t give him ideas.
For those unaware, Loot Crate is monthly subscription service where a paying customer gets a box of various “geek and gamer gear” (the site’s words, not mine). Each month has a different theme (April’s was Fantasy). Lots of YouTube channels signed up to it and do unboxing videos.
*reads description* He’s trying to be cute and say that what’s in the box is terrifying. This isn’t the end of Se7en Chris.
And apparently handlebar mustaches are “scary”. … Uhhh… huh.
He says he’s been subscribed for a few months now. Mentions that the last Crate he got was “weird” and he reacted “what am I five?” No, he doesn’t say what he got last month to garner that reaction. Hard to relate Chris.
I looked up what March’s Loot Crate was. The theme was “Covert”. The picture on their site includes a couple Agents of SHIELD items, an Orphan Black comic book, a chibi James Bond looking depressed, and a book of Mad Libs. Maybe that’s where the “what am I five” comment came from.
His first item is a Dungeons & Dragons t-shirt. Specifically, the dragon ampersand that adorns current boxes. “I didn’t know Dungeons & Dragons made t-shirts” … It’s a major merchandising empire, of course there’s t-shirts!
The t-shirt also came with a booklet, and in it is a model wearing it. The model has a handlebar mustache, so that’s what the description and title is about. He says the guy looks like a “total creeper” and “not to open your door if you see him”. … He looks fine to me. I’ve seen way worse “creepy” people.
Next item is Game of Thrones magnets. I’m not going to quote a dead joke.
Followed by a House Stark sigil flash drive.
Then a Harry Potter luggage tag. I would be embarrassed to use that in public. He claims he might give it to “the kids”. You mean the ones that aren’t yours?
Next is a bowtie. “In a Doctor Who mood” That’s outdated, the current Doctor doesn’t wear a bowtie now. Get with the times! He believes it’s a D&D bowtie, but I can’t tell at all. His camera didn’t focus that well.
“Last couple items which are kind of dorky” Loot Crate is all around dorky.
One of them is a blow-up crown. He brings up Burger King which leads to him talking about the old Burger King commercials with a different King (not the creepy one that invaded our nightmares in the mid 2000’s). Don’t do an 80’s video on that! I can tell that’s what you’re trying to do!
Finally, a Princess Bride deck of cards.
Fairly harmless and boring… next video.
Wednesday’s video is wacky blooopers! Bleh.
Specifically, the bloopers from the Season 4 DVD set. Yeah, I get the feeling this will also be a common occurrence. DVD extras when he doesn’t have anything to upload.
He actually took time to edit one of the bloopers, giving himself blue Iceman skin. Why? We know you play everyone, it’s not like it makes a difference considering you’re just going to mess up the line.
Admittedly, I did find the blooper as the Star Trek character trying to find “hot white babes” instead of hot green babes, amusing.
Oh, apparently this isn’t ALL the bloopers as there’s a promotion for the DVD at the end (unless this really is all the bloopers and he’s lying to get people to buy it. Anyone with the DVD able to confirm?).
His “plz subscreebe” message has him wearing the inflatable crown from the Loot Crate video and calling himself “King Irate Gamer”. Man, all this new attention has really gone to his head. Yet he still holds on to that 55th place.
EDIT: Forgot to mention. The video's thumbnail is downright terrifying. Funny how he criticized the man with the handlebar mustache of being "creepy" when that face in the thumbnail is freaky as hell.
Like I said before, it’s likely Friday will be a new IG episode so here’s the recap. Light on content I know but it was a load of nothing.
See you Saturday.
