I'm really excited for the next video in the series, to see where this goes. I didn't actually think I'd heard of Bunny before, but when I was watching the video she seemed so familiar, so I think I might have been aware of her during her heyday.alittledizzy wrote: ↑Thu May 10, 2018 1:14 amI'm not sure if this belongs here or in a thread for grav3yard girl but since it's Shane's video and I don't think we even have a Bunny thread...
This is a really interesting look at at a youtuber who was at a height and has suffered a steep drop in views over the past couple years. I'm curious to see what kind of advice Shane gives her, but mostly it's Bunny herself I find interesting.
Anyways, I find this whole thing really interesting, and want to know more about her and what's going on.
But kind of off topic - as someone who still watches all of Shane's videos, I still can't quite put my finger on how I feel about him. Like, with this series - obviously it's not going to be completely altruistic, but he seems to go overboard with the 'look at me helping other people out' shtick (and he does this with lots of other people - like, more off topic again, the video with Molly Burke. Watching that, I would have thought she was basically unknown and Shane was doing her this huge favour by having her on his channel, but she'd actually already done collabs with a bunch of other big youtubers before that).
Anyways, back to Bunny and Shane - I found the whole setup of the series interesting. Because Shane had mentioned that he wanted to do this series with some youtuber, and it seems like Bunny was the one he chose. But then in the video, Bunny mentions something about being worried Shane would say no to the collab (I watched the vid yesterday and can't remember the exact quote). So, did Shane reach out to a bunch of people that he thought needed help, and then they had to like basically 'interview' for the opportunity to be in the video? I was just confused by Bunny's wording, because I would have assumed Shane contacted her directly, but Bunny made it seem like Shane had the chance to say no, like there were other people in the running. I don't know, this isn't a big deal in the end, I'm just interested in the behind the scenes of how these types of videos actually come to be, and how much actual truth is behind it. Obviously, both parties will be doing it for their own personal gain, but I'm curious to know exactly how much is set up (which brings me back to my questioning of Shane's character overall, and how genuine he actually is, when his whole branding now is being 'genuine').
But yeah, I'm mostly excited to learn more about Bunny.
