I was going to save this video for a later post as I didn't want something so short. ... But then I watched it!
Last night, Chris uploaded a video promoting another crappy iOS app. This time something called "GetGiftz". You remember those old sites that said you could win cool stuff if you signed up for a bunch of shit or downloaded a bunch of programs, only to get bombarded with spam and computer-breaking viruses? Introducing the modern day iOS equivalent! It's an app that promises free gift cards... if you download a bunch of shitty apps. That's not dangerous at all!
You download the app, often having to fulfill an asinine requirement like "Reach Level 5" in some shitty RPG that probably has microtransactions out the ass, and then you get the points. Starting with 50, usually under 200 point a pop. How many do you need for a gift card? A $5 card is 2000 points. That's over 20 apps to download, you're going to hurt your phone or tablet with all that junk. That's not getting into the bigger rewards. You're better off just spending $5 of your own money than clogging your mobile device. If it even works as there's a lot of reviews stating they didn't get jackshit.
Chris, why would you promote this? Did you not do any rese- wait, I know he didn't. It's more than likely he saw the offer in his e-mail and took it without a second thought. He is so desperate for money. YouTube user Victor N made an excellent point in the comments. "Why not just hold up a sign "Will make YouTube video for food""
Screencap in case Chris deletes:
Oh and there's a shockingly sexist comment he made when going through the list of gift cards. He shows Target and says "I'm sure all the girlfriends out there will love that". ... What kind of sense does that make? Everyone shops at Target. It's affordable and has a lot of variety. It's not just women. The hell is wrong with you?
If this your
idea of a "filler video" Chris, you need to reorganize your process.
This shit is unacceptable, especially when it's something that can harm
phones and tablets. If you're so desperate that you need to take all these brand deals, then maybe you should do some research on them for once in your life. This is your job, actually put in some effort.
Don't forget to download and backup the video. It's very likely he'll delete this one in a month or so (heavy dislikes).
