You know, it actually would have been funny if he'd had Dan make a cameo in this video - Dan, who has made a video in months, giving straight faced advice to Anthony...

I wonder if Dan just doesn't respond to calls anymore? They could have fit him in via video appearance (like Shane Dawson) but maybe he's not into that.

Lol yeah that would have been funny. He did have Jon Cozart in his initial how-to-be-a-youtuber-video, the guy hadn't made a video in like eight months at that point.

I'm also curious about their relationship at this point, does it stretch further than some twitter interactions? Have Anthony bugged him about more collabs, as collabs are the only videos that will get him views these days? Will he ever understand that he has actively pushed away the audience he had in the beginning? So many questions.

I hadn't followed Smosh for a while when Anthony left, so I didn't fully understand how much Defy played a part in his decision to leave. I definitely had no idea about the things he points out at about 5:10. Really makes me happy that D&P never got involved in a deal like this (unless you count SAP?)!

I feel so sad for everyone at Smosh, and Cleverly and the other brands owned by Defy. And the fact that they sold it for stock they never saw is even worse. Though if the company is liquidated they should get some of it? Idk the terms or way of business in the USA, but if he owned stock in something of worth then he should get that when the company seizes to exists. I hope.

Philip DeFranco talked about it too:

That's so rough. I feel really bad for Anthony and Ian getting so fucked over, and for everyone that worked for that company and got screwed. I hope they can rehome the channels and personalities to a better environment.

I do appreciate Anthony talking so bluntly about it. I understand a lot better why he left now, and I respect the decision more. I wonder what was different for Ian that he didn't leave? It'd be fascinating to hear him talk about it too, or hear him and Anthony both discuss their experiences.

These past few days I've been trying to watch Anthony. It all started when I rewatched Dan, Anthony or a rat and while it's the second laziest video in the history of Phils channel (drawing my viewers challenge anyone), I found it surprisingly enjoyable. After that I ended up rewatching all their other collabs too, and somehow the video Anthony made with Dan to his channel was pure gold (that's not what I thought when I originally watched it, but headspaces change I guess). So after that I casually checked what Anthony's up to these days... and I can't decide what to think of him.

I truly enjoy his new series of interviewing people with weird hobbies/jobs or whatever. It's actually doing pretty good in terms of views. I've come to a conclusion that I do like "serious Anthony" more. He asks interesting questions, and keeps his conclusions short and leaves room for the viewer to make their own mind (I'm not sure it's him who comes up with the questions though, he seems to have a team working for him). But then, when the sketches start... it's all downhill. At first I just thought I don't have sense of humor to find him funny, but reading this thread I realised I'm not alone in this. Clicking his videos is taking a risk every time. His humor is there but it's just... taking too much turns to be enjoyable for me.

I never watched Smosh or know anything about it, so all this is 100% based on his own personal channel.

I feel like this post should have a meaning, but it really doesn't, just my random thoughts about the dude. Have a good day everyone.
You should never go to sleep on an argument.
