This is like what, the fifth time he's announced retirement? Chris, you ever heard The Boy Who Cried Wolf? A fable that's lasted the ages because its message still rings true? You're the boy, and your constant claims of retirement are ringing more and more hollow. Keep it up and nobody will come running to you when a wolf escapes a public access show and starts attacking you (and if anyone sees this as a threat, it's a Simpsons reference).
There is one part that seems to indicate he's "serious". He says "Season 5" is the last one, but the Duck Hunt video was Season 6 right? Not anymore. He's since edited it to be Episode 13 of Season 5. I mention in my recap how it's a new season so yeah this is a retcon.
If he's for real, where does that leave me? Well, he says in the post he'll still be around, so I will be too. Who knows, he might actually make that second book, or that episode of Hardcore Pawn will actually air (doubtful), or he'll make another ghost movie, or he'll just make more videos about stupid boxes since apparently these companies are desperate and paying obscene amounts of money for a video ($1500 according to Guru Larry).
Sorry "Linda", and other haters, but I'm here to stay.
If he really is done, thank you everyone. To all the fans, big and small, for your years of appreciation. This was a fun little diversion that despite what people claimed, didn't really take much time out of my day. I'm happy to make you laugh, angry, or whatever other emotion you possibly felt while reading. Thank you, and I wish you all the best.
EDIT: Chris, if you want this to be serious, make a video explaining yourself.
Also, if Chris decides to close his account, everyone download his videos for preservation. Think of them as part of a how-to guide on how NOT to make internet videos.
